Pokemon Go’s Halloween Event Starts This Wednesday

Pokemon Go will have a Halloween event starting this Wednesday. We have a trailer and press release for the event below.

POKÉMON GO CELEBRATES HALLOWEEN WITH GLOBAL IN-GAME EVENT
Increased Encounters of Spooky Pokémon and Candy Bonuses Await Trainers in the First-Ever In-Game Event for the Popular Mobile Title

Bellevue, WA, and San Francisco, CA—October 24, 2016—This Halloween, players of the popular Pokémon GO mobile game will experience exciting treats from Niantic Labs, Inc. and The Pokémon Company International. Beginning Wednesday, October 26, through Tuesday, November 1, Pokémon GO Trainers will have the chance to catch some of the spookiest Pokémon available in the game with increased global encounters of Drowzee, Gastly, Gengar, Golbat, Haunter, Hypno, and, yes, Zubat. And, since it wouldn’t be Halloween without candy, Trainers will have the opportunity to earn more Pokémon Candy during this event as they explore the world around them in search of Pokémon.

“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.

“The excitement of Pokémon’s 20-year celebration continues this Halloween with the first-ever in-game Pokémon GO event,” said J.C. Smith, senior director of consumer marketing at The Pokémon Company International. “We anticipate seeing many Pokémon-themed costumes during this anniversary year, and now Trainers can add Pokémon GO to their trick-or-treat route to receive Candy and add some of the spookier Pokémon to their Pokédex.”
