Free Pokemon for X/Y Spooky Pumpkaboo Available Now

Preceding the shiny Gengar giveaway for Pokemon X and Y coming up later this month, Nintendo is currently giving away a Halloween-themed Pumpkaboo (pictured at the left).

According to a press release, the Ghost- and Grass-type Pokemon will come with "moves perfect for Halloween, including Trick-or-Treat and Scary Face. Plus, it’s holding a Rocky Helmet, which can cause damage to its attacker." The release also notes that Pumpkaboo Pokemon come in four sizes, and this super-sized version "typically possess a larger HP stat than their smaller counterparts, making them more durable during Pokemon Battles."

To download the Pumpkaboo, all you need to do is go into the Mystery Gift menu and receive a gift "via Internet." The promotion will run from October 1 through October 31. And with Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire set to release in November, there are sure to be a few more Pokemon-themed giveaways in the coming weeks.
