Hey Trainers!

 

With Halloween just around the corner, this year we are trying something a bit different! We're kicking off an event to figure out who is the spookiest Pokémon!

 

We need your votes! Each round of pairings will last 1 week. Each round of voting will end and another round will start each Tuesday, 4:30pm Pacific Time, until the spookiest Pokémon has been crowned! Trainers will have the opportunity to vote and reply for which Pokémon is the spookiest and who should move on to the next bracket. Eventually we will have a winner crowned the Spookiest Pokémon Champion!

 

Voting is complete! Any future votes for Round 1, Round 2, Round 3, & Final Round picks will not be counted.

 

The contest has ended!

 

 

Mimikyu has been voted the Spookiest Pokémon for the 2019 Halloween Bracket Contest!

 

The voting was intense and some rounds were incredibly close! All of the votes have been tallied and the community has spoken. Mimikyu, a ghost type Pokémon whose true appearance is unknown, has been crowned by the TCG forum community as the Spookiest Pokémon of 2019! The voting was frighteningly close with Gengar finishing 2nd place. Both of these two ghoulish Pokémon made a huge impact in this contest!

 

Thank you to all trainers who participated in this event and made this possible! Have a safe and happy Halloween everyone!

Be sure to keep an eye out for future events!

 

 

Have fun with this event and please only vote when new pairings have been posted in the comments section. Make sure to share this post with your friends!

Hey Trainers!

 

With Halloween just around the corner, this year we are trying something a bit different! We're kicking off an event to figure out who is the spookiest Pokémon!

 

 
 

 

For some reason i didnt get any email notifications about this...plus the halloweentrainer is a new account. Wasnt expecting that otherwise I would have followed that too.

 

Are there halloween in-game items being given out this year? Was hoping we had a chance at Vivid/Halloween gameplays.

 

Also, I voted for the sp0o0o0o0okiest pokemon. Ghost types are my favorite.

Poor Banette against Gengar lol xD Not that I can say anything since I too voted for the OG ghost :P

 

Shoutout to Yamask ;) Or are those just sad and not scary? Either way, I wouldn't wanna be reincarnated as one!

Has to be Gengar in first place. Followed closely by Mimikyu. Hence why Gengar & Mimikyu GX make a great Tag Team & the Art work is one of the best looking from recent releases imo.

Hey Turtle,

 

I didn't hear back from you about this event. Is this event just for fun? Are there any rewards to be given out for in-game? Really hoping we have a chance at haloween gameplays (vivid sleeves/deck box, etc)
