Pokemon Go Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist Evolution Guide

There are four different Gourgeist to collect!

Trainers, Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist are now available to collect in Pokemon Go! They were added to the game as part of the 2021 Halloween Mischief event.

Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist are unique pocket monsters in Pokemon Go, since they come in four possible sizes: Small, Average, Large, and Super. These Pokemon will appear larger or smaller in the game, depending on their size.

Pumpkaboo can be evolved into Gourgeist using 200 Pumpkaboo Candy. Or, you can evolve Pumpkaboo into Gourgeist for free (without using Candy) if Pumpkaboo has previously been traded.

Since Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist are both available in four possible sizes, this means there are actually eight new Pokemon available to collect in total.

If you like to have one of every Pokemon in your collection, it may take you some time to collect all four sizes of Pumpkaboo as well as all four sizes of Gourgeist (eight Pokemon in all). That being the case, you may want to check out some mobile accessories that can improve your gameplay experience. For instance, check out HyperX’s Cloud Buds Wireless Headphones. They’ll let you listen to the action in Pokemon Go (and other mobile games) without having a cord plugged into your device.
