Pokémon GO creator Niantic Labs released a trailer, which confirmed that they have a special in-game event in time for this year’s Halloween and running from October 26 to November 1. The popular augmented reality game will feature more Pokémon spawns than usual giving chance to fans to catch the creatures next week.
The video titled “Pokémon GO – Halloween Is Approaching” features the popular “scary” Pokémons like Haunter, Gengar, Zubat, Gobat, Drowzee, Hypno and Gastly.
According to the video, select Pokémons will be available to catch more often during the dates mentioned for gamers to have a chance to “add these spooky Pokémon to your Pokédex”
It also promises to offer “increased candy rewards” throughout the event.
“It’s Halloween season and we have a treat for you! From October 26th to November 1st, you’ll earn double the amount of Candy every time you catch, hatch and transfer Pokémon! Don’t forget your Buddy Pokémon, because they will help you earn Candy four times as fast,” A post from PokemonGoLive.com stated.
“If you encounter more spooky Pokémon than normal, don’t be startled, they want to enjoy the fun too! Scare up some friends, grab your buddy and enjoy this spooky, fun celebration with us! Happy Halloween!”

Rumors has it that players will be receiving six candies rather than the more common three in previous months so fans have a chance to evolve or power up their Pokémon during this event.
Moreover, it’s an improved Pokémon Go Buddy System as well according to other reports. Players get just one candy for every required distance for their Pokémon buddy but next week that jumps to four candies!
Pokémon Go has reportedly lost some luster recently but with the Halloween Special event maybe old players will return to the game and convince new players to join the Pokémon hunting starting this October.
