Similarly, remember that it is not possible to encounter a brilliant cofagrigus in the wild. As you will not meet the wild form of Yamask in the wild.

Hatches of Eggs:
Yamask will not be available in the game as an egg hatch. This could change in the future, but we would not count on that during Halloween.
Battles of Raids:
At the time of writing these lines, Niantic had still not confirmed that Yamask was a potential leader of the raid. However, a longer list of raid leaders may be available at the time of the broadcast of the event.
