How to get a Yamask from Galar

There are two types of Yamask in Pokémon GO , the normal one, introduced in 2019 and which can only be captured on the map during the annual Halloween event, and the one in the Galar region, which is a little different.

Introduced at the 2020 Halloween event, the second type can only be achieved through the special survey “A scary message unmasked”.

To get Yamask from Galar, you need to complete 3 of the 4 research phases. It is available to anyone who plays Pokémon GO from 10:00 pm on October 23 to 18:00 on November 3, 2020, Brasília time.

Once the survey is activated, you can complete it whenever you want.

These are all stages of the special search:

  • Phase 1: Capture 34 pokémons, capture 30 ghost pokémons, transfer 4 pokémons;
  • Phase 2: Capture 108 Pokémon, capture 10 dark Pokémon, make 4 good moves;
  • Phase 3: Capture 49 Pokémon, capture 40 ghost Pokémon, make 4 great moves;
  • Phase 4: Collect the rewards;

Upon completing the first 3 stages, you will receive a Yamask of Galar, among other rewards.

After winning 10 raids and accumulating 50 Yamask sweets in your inventory, do the following:

  1. On the main screen, touch the Poké Ball and then “Pokémon”;
  2. In the list of Pokémon, tap on the Galmas Yamask;
