In the Trick-or-Treat Friendly, you’ll play in a Single Battle competition using Ghost-type Pokémon only. But beware! Your Battle Box must include a Super Size Gourgeist. The easiest way to find this Gourgeist is to get a Super Size Pumpkaboo via Nintendo Network right now for your Pokémon X or Pokémon Y game. Then trade it to have it evolve into the battle-ready Gourgeist you’ll need to compete!

Participants will receive a participation prize of five Rare Candy items for their Pokémon X or Pokémon Y game!

Players who have been disqualified from the rankings will not be able to receive the prize. Players may be disqualified for the following reasons:
• They have a significant number of disconnects.
• They have not played at least one match to completion.
