The Spooky Cup 2021 Competition Has Begun

Battle against other Trainers with your most spine-chilling Pokémon in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.

Just in time for the Halloween season, the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Spooky Cup 2021 in-game competition has begun. From Thursday, October 14, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. until Sunday, October 17, 2021, at 4:59 p.m. PDT, you can take part in this aptly named competition alongside your scariest-looking Pokémon partners. As an added twist, only the final evolved forms of Pokémon can battle—for example, you can have Crobat on your team, but not Zubat or Golbat. Trainers who participate in at least one Spooky Cup 2021 battle, regardless of whether they win or lose, will earn 50 Battle Points.

The Spooky Cup 2021 is comprised of Double Battles. Duplicate Pokémon and duplicate items are not permitted.
