Pokémon Go will once again hold the Festival of Lights event, which will serve as a midpoint for October. The celebration will be short, starting on October 14, but there will be plenty of rewards and Pokémon for players to enjoy as we head towards the end of the month and the main Halloween event. For this year’s Festival of Lights, Morelull and Shiinotic will make their Pokémon Go debut.
Morelull is the initial form of these two Pokémon and will be the one you can find appearing in the wild throughout the event. If you catch enough Morelull to earn 50 Morelull Candy, you can turn it into a Shiinotic. They are both Grass- and Fairy-type Pokémon, giving them a lot of potential use against other players.

Alongside Morelull in the wild, we can expect to see Pikachu, Vulpix, Magnemite, Chinchou, Litwick, Litleo, Helioptile, and Dedenne. Also, if players are lucky, there’s a chance they’ll run into a Galarian Ponyta and Togedemaru.
While wandering around using Incense, players have a chance to encounter Alolan Geodude, Blitzle, Darumaka, Litwick, Dedenne, or Morelull. There is a chance that lucky players can find Galarian Ponyta or Galarian Darumaka through this method.
Galarian Ponyta, Darumaka, Dedenne, and Morelull will appear in one-star raids if they appear in a player’s home area. For three star raids, we have Alolan Raichu, Galarian Weezing, Mawile, and Hisuian Braviary. Finally, in Featured Five Star Raids, Xerneas will be available, and there’s a chance you could catch a shiny version of this Pokemon.
The Festival of Lights 2022 event will take place from October 14 to 17. On October 15, Litwick will have its Community Day event, which we highly recommend everyone attend to ensure you can catch enough Litwick to turn it into a Chandelure, and can teach it’s next Ghost-type move, Poltergeist.
