Pokémon GO Halloween – Mysterious Masks Research Rewards

Go trick or treating for your own Runerigus.

While the tricks are lacking, treats are in full swing for the 2022 Halloween event in Pokémon GO. Not only did Niantic change the entire theme of the in-game map to match the event, but there are plenty of Special Research tasks to take on under the name of Mysterious Masks.

Most major events in Pokémon GO bring a Special Research story and some Timed Research that can be completed before the fun comes to an end. Unlike the Yamask Timed research, you’ll have an indefinite amount of time to complete the Mysterious Masks Special Research. However, you’ll want to take full advantage of the Halloween spawns, and in this guide, we’ll go over all of the challenge rewards you can earn.
