Trick-or-Treat (Japanese: ハロウィン Halloween) is a non-damaging Ghost-type move introduced in Generation VI. It is the signature move of Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist.
Trick-or-Treat adds the Ghost type to the target, in addition to the Pokémon's original type(s). If it is used against a dual-type Pokémon, that Pokémon will have three types at once. If the target already has an additional type added to it by Forest's Curse, that type is replaced with the Ghost type.
Trick-or-Treat will fail if the target Pokémon is already Ghost-type.

- Using Trick-or-Treat on a pure Normal-type Pokémon is the only way for a Pokémon to have a sole weakness to the Dark type.
- Unlike Forest's Curse A Pokémon affected by this cannot have an 8x weakness, as ghost is only weak to two types.
