Aside from these free items, the event will also have new Halloween-theme Holowear Pokemon Skins for Lucario and Zeraora, as well as new seasonal clothing for Trainers.

How to Play Greedent

Greedent, according to RealSport101.com, is a Defence Pokemon that can deal sustained damage while maintaining its high survivability and its capability to take down objectives. It is focused more in the Bottom Lane, where it can take the role of Support.

Its attacks are more focused on its berries. Its Stuff Cheeks move, at Level 5, will drop several berries, which can be eaten to recover HP or provide a shield if it was consumed while the HP is full. If it catches a sight of a berry, it will increase its movement speed.

Its Belch move will deal area of effect (AoE) damage towards enemies, while decreasing their movement speed. If it has stashed berries, it will consume all of them. The more berries Greedent stashed, the faster the ability will cooldown. Once it is upgraded, it will increase the damage it dealt.

Its Covet move, according to Attack of the Fanboy, will let Greedent run towards the enemy and stunning them in the process. If it eats a dropped berry, its secondary effect resolves. While performing Covet, Greedent can do other moves, giving it more utility.

Its Unite Move, the Belly Belly Flop, will make Greedent eat a berry to recover HP, then leap to a designated area, dealing AoE damage while throwing any opponent Pokemon in that area.

Because of its moveset, players will be focusing more on defense while creating its build. Suggested Hold Items for Greedent include Weakness Policy, Focus Band, Buddy Barrier, Energy Amplifier, Muscle Band, Score Shield, Wise Lenses, and Choice Specs.

The can also consider either the Eject Button, X Attack, or Slow Smoke is a good choice for its Battle Item.
