Pokémon GO Halloween Event Confirmed

Pokémon GO Help Center

I hope you’re ready for the next event coming to Pokémon GO. On the Pokémon website it was confirmed that a new event is coming. If you’ve been playing the game as faithfully as I have, the very first event that took place was the Halloween event.

The previous Halloween event gave us increased spawns of Ghost Type Pokémon and double candy. While no information has been released about the details of the new Halloween event, I think it’s safe to say we can expect the event to be eerily similar to last years. The announcement is listed below.

Pokémon GO Halloween Event Confirmed

“The Halloween seasons is a special time in Pokémon GO. Plenty of good stud is coming to the game later this October, and we can’t wait to get out and about to see what sort of excitement we can scare up while catching new Pokémon to fill out our Pokédex.”

The most interesting part of this announcement is they mention “new Pokémon to fill out our Pokédex.” While new Pokémon could just be Pikachu wearing a witch’s hat, some speculations are that this could be an introduction to Gen 3 Pokémon. Gen 3 does have a significant amount of Ghost Type Pokémon that they could bring in the for the event to get us started for Gen 3.

If we do get introduced to the next generation of Pokémon, it won’t be long until we get the rest as well. I for one hope that Gen 3 is coming soon, as the Legendary Raids have been taking a toll on Trainers and desperately need new content to keep us going. Once more information of the Halloween event is released, we will give you full details on what’s to come.
