Halloween Event Guide & Rewards
The Pumpkin Exchange
You'll be able to acquire Pumpkins by doing various events during Halloween. These Pumpkins can then be exchanged for prizes! You can even claim a Greedent License as one of these prizes.
Not All Rewards Are Obtainable At The End Of The Event
Note, however, that to get all rewards you would need over 160 Pumpkins, which is not realistically possible to get during the event. You'll have a limited amount of Pumpkins (around 100) available, so you'll have to choose what you buy carefully.Pumpkin Exchange Guide & All Rewards

Halloween Event Features
New Pokemon - Greedent
One of the most exciting additions in this patch is the new Pokemon Greedent. This generation 8 normal-type is a Defender, though it also packs quite a bunch in battle!Greedent Guide
New Gameplay Mode In Mer Stadium
One of the main features of this patch is a new Quick Battle Mode playable only on Mer Stadium for a limited time only. In this mode, you'll get a pumpkin instead of your regular Battle Item! This will let you transform enemy Pokemon into Pumpkins.
Effect Of The Pumpkin Transformation
Pokemon that are transformed into Pumpkins are unable to score or recall! Additionally, all their abilities will be transformed into a tackle ability that charges forward, dealing damage.
New Halloween-themed skins were also added in this update, specifically for the likes of Lucario and Zeraora. In the trailer, skins for Eldegoss, and Wigglytuff were shown, but they do not seem to have been added as of yet.
