Pokémon GO has special Halloween treats.
Gastly and like Pokémon will be back, and some Ghost-type Pokémon originally from the Ruby and Sapphire releases will appear for the first time. Candy rewards will be doubled and anyone’s buddy Pokémon will find candy twice as fast.
Players may stock up on items like Raid Passes and Super Incubators via special boxes from the in-game store and dress their avatar with Mimikyu’s disguise hat.
Most importantly, Pikachu will don a seasonal outfit.
The Pokémon GO Team encourages users to take photos of their Halloween adventures with the app’s AR camera and to share them using the hashtag #PokémonGOHalloween.
Of course, caution is advised – journeying about with Pokémon GO on its own and going out and about on Halloween are on their own potentially dangerous activities. Combining them means practicing extra caution.
The celebration began October 20 and will last through November 2 at 8:00 PM UTC.
