International Games Week October 29 – November 4

Pokémon Go Halloween Event!

Posted on October 26, 2016

Pokemon Go Halloween

Ghosts, psychics, and skulls, oh my!

This week, October 26th-31st, Niantic has released its first Pokémon Go event in the spirit of Halloween and all the spooky fun the holiday inspires.

While exploring the world, there are three major changes that are in effect for this event. Instead of the typical Pidgeys and Rattatas found everywhere, Halloween-themed Pokémon are in abundance! This includes, Gastly, Drowzee, Meowth, Cubone, Zubat, and all of their evolutions.

In addition, as a sweet treat, all Pokémon caught, traded, or evolved provide twice the candies during this Halloween event.

Lastly, and probably most excitedly, walking around with your buddy Pokémon produces candy four times as fast! This means walking a Magikarp provides a candy every .25km, much like everyone’s favorite little yellow buddy, Pikachu.

Get out and catch them all this weekend, and don’t forget to sign up for the Pokémon Go library gym map!

Help spread the word!

    1. This has been a great event for Pokémon Go, and it propelled them to #1 in the app store again!

    2. Thanks for the head’s up, I was wondering why we were suddenly Hauntered. 😉
