The Halloween 2018 Spiritomb leak

The Halloween 2018 leak is in front of you, read it all, it’s actually a good quest line:

“Oh, %PLAYERNAME%! You’ve dropped by just in time.

“As I was out on my regular walk one evening, I stumbled upon this odd stone. Something told me to bring it back to my lab for further research, and ever since then, strange things have been happening.”


“Papers shifting around, water glasses tipping all by themselves… When I tried using my computer to research it, I got an error message with the number 108 flashing! %PLAYERNAME%, can you help gather some data on nearby Ghost-type Pokemon? I have to believe we can solve these spooky occurrences with science!”

“%PLAYERNAME%, thanks so much for your help. I did some research on Ghost-type Pokemon, and I think there’s a Ghost- and Dark-type Pokemon that is bound to a strange stone.”

“I can’t say for sure just yet, but it seems this Pokemon may actually be composed of 108 spirits bound together. So maybe if we catch 108 Pokemon, it will appear?”

“Good luck, %PLAYERNAME%! And…would you keep the light on in the lab for me? All this spooky research is making my hair stand on end.”

“Wow, %PLAYERNAME%! It seems we’ve had a spooky brush with Spiritomb! ”

“I can’t tell if it’s the weather, but I’ve got the shivers! You know, I feel confident that we can solve anything together, %PLAYERNAME%, even when things get scary. ” “I’ll be in touch soon!”

Our take on the matter

Admittedly, we all knew that Pokemon GO will get a Halloween event. It got one every year, and we didn’t expect this year to be any different. However, we are very excited to see Niantic utilize the power of Special research to introduce a brand new Pokemon to the game.

Spiritomb is actually really formed out of 108 spirits bound to an Odd Keystone in the Pokemon world, as it’s Pokedex entry stated throughout several different games. We’ll see how it looks like and works in Pokemon GO, but we expect it to be yet another Pokedex filler.
