As mentioned above, the Pokemon Go A Spooky Message Unmasked rewards you'll unlock for completing the research includes two rare Pokemon encounters. One of which is Spiritomb, who has been available in the past, but now has a chance to be shiny. You'll also earn Galarian Yamask, which gives the first opportunity of evolving it into Runerigus.

Give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
