Pokémon Go - Halloween

Niantic is encouraging Trainers to not forget about Pokémon Go while traversing their neighborhoods this coming week. The developer has announced that a special Halloween event will be taking place beginning this week.

Time To Rake In Some Of That Sweet, Sweet Digital Candy

Beginning October 26th, people playing Pokémon Go will begin to see an influx of the more “scary” Pokémon in the ‘dex. Specially; Zubats, Golbats, Gastlys, Haunters, Gengars, Drowzees and Hypnos.

On top of the added presence of the “scary” types, we’re also due for bonus candy. “Every time you catch, hatch and transfer Pokémon”, we’ll be entitled to double the typical amount of candy you normally would be. Sweet! Also, be sure to have a Buddy Pokémon paired with your Trainer. Doing so will net you candy four times as fast it normally would. So get to walking!

The Halloween promotion lasts through November 1st. Be sure to have Pokémon Go launched as you walk around so you can satisfy that sweet tooth.
