Well trainers if you’re like me and you aren’t sure what you are doing for Halloween, Pokemon Go is having its first event.
From Pokemon.com: Halloween is here, and Pokémon GO has its own treats to give out. Starting October 26 and lasting through November 1, you can receive way more Candies than usual. Every Pokémon you catch will award six Candies—twice the normal amount. The Professor will give you two Candies instead of one for every Pokémon you transfer to him. And your Buddy Pokémon will award Candy four times faster than they usually do. Plus, you’ll get twice the Candy you’d normally get when you hatch Eggs. Walk and catch all the Pokémon you can to get your fill of Candy during this special event!
According to the website, some of the Pokemon you will encounter include: Zubat, Golbat, Gastly, Haunter, Gengar, Drowzee and Hypno.
I’m glad the event is lasting from Oct. 26 to Nov. 1. Although it would be fun to hunt for ghostly Pokemon on Oct. 31 night, Halloween is also a time where pranks – ranging from light-hearted to downright cruel – can happen. I’m not saying don’t hunt for Pokemon on Halloween – I’ll be out catching a few while I take photos at various events – but I am suggesting everyone to be safe.
