Pokemon X and Y offers free Pumpkaboo for Halloween

The Pokemon Company is celebrating Halloween by giving away a giant Pumpkaboo Pokemon in X and Y, with some Halloween-themed moves to boot.


It's October, and that means it's time to start rolling out the usual suite of pumpkin-themed treats. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin Pokemon--you know, the ordinary, run-of-the-mill things.

Pokemon X and Y are now offering an extra-large Pumpkaboo Pokemon through the Nintendo Network. He comes with specially themed moves like Treat-or-Treat and Scary Face, and comes with a Rocky Helmet to damage its attacker. The Super-Size version has more HP than the average Pumpkaboo.

Grabbing him also grants you easy entry to the Trick-or-Treat Friendly Online Competition, which requires a Super-Size Gourgeist. You can get the Gourgeist by trading your Pumpkaboo to make it evolve. You can check out details of the promotion at the official site.
