Pokémon Go Celebrates Halloween With 1st In-Game Event
posted on by Egan Loo
The Pokémon Company confirmed on Monday that Niantic Labs' Pokėmon Go app will mark the occasion of Halloween with its first in-game event.
From October 26 to November 1, the game will increase the global encounters of "some of the spookiest Pokémon" — Drowzee, Gastly, Gengar, Golbat, Haunter, Hypno, and Zubat. In addition, the game will offer trainers the opportunity to earn more Pokémon Candy during the event.
Specifically, "every Pokémon caught will earn Trainers six Candies—twice the normal amount. The professor will also give Trainers two Candies instead of one for every Pokémon transferred to him. In addition, Buddy Pokémon will award four candies instead of the usual one. Pokémon Candies enable Trainers to evolve or strengthen their Pokémon, so players will want to walk and catch all the Pokémon they can to get their fill of Candy during this special event."
