It’s about to get extra spooky for Halloween!
Starting Wednesday, October 26th through Tuesday, November 1st, Pokemon Go is launching their first in-game event. Players will have the heightened chance to get Gastly, Haunter, Gengar, Drowzee, Hypno, Golbat, and (as annoying as it is) Zubat. They will also get double candy for transactions and four times the candy for walking your buddy Pokemon!
My Nintendo News is reporting:
“It’s been incredible watching people explore their neighborhoods and catch wild Pokémon all summer,” said Tatsuo Nomura, senior product manager at Niantic, Inc. “We would like to trick-or-treat in our own special way by giving Trainers the chance to catch more Pokémon and earn extra Candy this Halloween.”
During this period, 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.
With four candies for buddy Pokemon, I know I’ll be walking my Magikarp more in the next week as I continue to grind out for that elusive Gyarados.
EDIT: Serebii.net has reported that the event Pokemon is more than what was previously reported. The event also includes Cubone, Marowak, and Meowth.
