Super Size Pumpkaboo distribution set for Pokémon X & Y this Halloween


A special Super Size Pumpkaboo will be distributed to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y this October, available through the Nintendo Network.

Pumpkaboo, the Pumpkin Pokémon, can appear in four sizes that each have different stats – the Super Size Pumpkaboo being more durable in battle due to its larger HP stat. Pumpkaboo evolves into Gourgeist by trading, with the two being the only known Pokémon that can learn the move Trick-or-Treat, which adds Ghost-type to the target. The Pumpkaboo will also have the Scary Face move and will be holding a Rocky Helmet, which can deal damage to any attackers.

The distribution will help players qualify for the Trick-or-Treat Friendly Online Competition, where every participant’s Battle Box must include a Super Size Gourgeist.
