The event Pokemon available in the United States and Europe all this month (October 1st- October 31st) is a Super Size Pumpkaboo for Halloween. The event Pumpkaboo is armed with moves like Trick or Treat and has the item Rocky Helmet. The intent for the online distribution is to trade it with a friend to have it evolve into a Gourgeist and be used in the Trick or Treat Friendly Pokemon X and Pokemon Y competition. To enter the Trick-or-Treat Friendly, you must have a Super-Sized Gourgiest.
