Pokemon Unite's Halloween festival for 2022 is just around the corner, and those excited about the tricks to come are in for a real treat. With the Halloween fest comes new skins, a new battle pass, one exciting new Pokemon fighter, and more!

The latest update coming to Pokemon Unite is the Halloween Festival, which is set to start on October 27, 2022, at 12 am PDT or 3 pm EST. With the update comes one very big addition; Zoroark. Zoroark is a Dark-type Pokemon, so this runs well with the Halloween theme. On top of a new fighter joining the ranks, there will be a new Battle Pass added, where players can level their battle rank and obtain new Holowear as well as cosmetic items for their fighters.

More so, there is a new battle mode coming to Pokemon Unite this Halloween, which looks absolutely spooktacular. Halloween Night is the name of the new battle mode, where players will be given a new ability called Pumpkin Tackle. Players will morph into a pumpkin and charge forward toward an enemy, knocking them back a great distance when they make contact. Though it does not inflict any damage, it does hinder the enemy from scoring a goal or from completing an ultimate attack. The ability does come with a 9-second cooldown, meaning it should be used wisely in order to make a real impact on the outcome of the match. 

Season 7 of Pokemon Unite is already in full swing, meaning this update will add to the content that has been in play since October 13, 2022, giving players even more content to enjoy and cosmetic items to collect. There will also be a new trainer card border, stickers and background added that fits the Halloween theme and can be acquired through ranked matches. As if that wasn't enough, there are new fighter skins being added to the game for a limited time, including Greninja's medieval-themed Holowear, Lucario's Costume Party Holowear, and Space Style Zeraora. These will be available until November 17, 2022, so snag them while you can!
