Most of us are too old to go trick-or-treating, but that doesn’t mean we can’t go around collecting candy inside of Pokemon Go! It’s kind of the same right? Pokemon Go isn’t throwing around any tricks this Halloween. Niantic is giving out all the treats to users and hosting the first ever Pokemon Go event worldwide.
Like you’d expect from a Halloween event, Pokemon Go users can rack up their favorite Pokemon candies. From October 26th through the 30th, you will get double the candy for every catch, hatch and transfer. Your Pokemon buddy will also collect candy four times as fast.
Candy isn’t the only thing special about this event. Because it’s Halloween you can expect to see more spooky Pokemon walking around. This includes some extra psychic and ghost type Pokemon like Drowzee, Hypno, Ghastly, Haunter and Gengar. Unfortunately it also means there will be more Zubats and Golbats, as if there already weren’t enough.
If you were looking to evolve your Ghastly, though, now’s the perfect time. Gengar is a battling machine and would be a great addition to any user’s gym lineup. Hypno also has notoriously high HP and some great psychic special attacks. Zubat is pretty worthless across the board.
Will you be catching Pokemon this Halloween?
