Two Pokemon Distributions Get in the Halloween Spirit

Plus a spooky new online competition!

Get your copies of Pokémon X and Y ready for the Halloween season with a shiny Gengar and super-sized Pumpkaboo this month.

GameStop will be distributing cards with a code to download Gengar from October 13 to 26. Gengar will be holding Gengarite, a Mega Stone, which will turn it into a bright white Mega Gengar with the Shadow Tag ability, preventing enemies from switching out or fleeing during battle. GameStop will also be selling exclusive Pokémon TCG Gengar Booster two-packs, which includes a Gengar Spirit Link Trainer card.

Starting today, Pumpkaboo can be downloaded via the Nintendo Network as a Mystery Gift. The Pokémon will come with Halloween appropriate moves like Trick-or-Treat and Scary Face and will hold a Rocky Helmet which damages any Pokémon using a physical attack. Pumpkaboo will be available until October 31.

A special ghost-type single battle online competition, the Trick-or-Treat Friendly, will require a super-sized Gourgeist, so players will need to trade their newly acquired Pumpkaboo with a friend so it can evolve.

Was hoping to find a shiny Pumpkaboo somewhere, but this will do perfectly fine.

My Gamestop says it is already giving away the code cards, but that they were all taken. Not sure what that is about....
