Get ready to celebrate Halloween in Pokémon GO! After teasing the event a few weeks ago, Niantic has now revealed all the details. Fans of the Sinnoh region will be happy. After adding a small amount of Pokémon from the region last week, Niantic has promised there will be more Sinnoh Pokémon to capture during this event. From October 23rd – November 1st, Ghost and Dark-type Pokémon from Sinnoh will appear for the first time and at a more frequent rate. This includes Pokémon like Drifloon and Stunky. In the spirit of Halloween, trainers will also earn double Candy for every Pokémon they capture during this event.
Professor Willow will also have some new Research Tasks for trainers to complete.
He stumbled across an odd stone one day and has been experiencing strange happenings around his lab ever since! Could a Pokémon be causing this ruckus? Complete Special Research tasks and find out before whatever it is goes away!”
As if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a special new Legendary Pokémon that will appear in Raid Battles. That’s right Renegade Pokémon Giratina will begin to appear in Raid Battles until November 20th.
A few new items will also be added to the Style Shop for players to rock. These include a Drifloon Cap and a Gengar Backpack. Make sure to dress up your trainers for Halloween!
