The trainers themselves now have the option to participate in the Halloween festivities by purchasing special avatar items and stickers during the event. Some of these unique in-store items, though, have left some members of the Pokemon Go community puzzled.

A trainer shared their confusion about the new avatar style options on an online forum. Comically expressing their bewilderment, they posted an image of the new styles with a caption: 'I’m sorry, but what is this?'

The image exhibited the player trying on the new Yamask Mask, priced reasonably at 200 coins. What really pulled the community's attention was the wildly unusual Cofagrigus Costume, available for a slightly steeper fee.

Reactions to these additions were, at the very least, varied. Some players playfully described the new costume as 'Nightmare fuel'. Others were instantly captivated, praising it as 'Perfection' or exclaiming, 'That’s the best thing I’ve seen all day. That’s what that is.'

The Halloween-themed outfit showcased a shiny Yamask Mask, coupled with a complete Cofagrigus ensemble that glistened in opulent gold. Additionally, an extra pair of shadowy limbs, similar to those of Cofagrigus, emerged from the avatar's back.

With the wide array of offerings, there's unquestionably something that appeals to every player this Halloween, irrespective of their opinion on the most recent costumes populating the in-game store.
