Pokemon GO Halloween 2017 Event & Gen 3 Release Details Revealed

Pokemon GO Adding New Battle Mode in 2018

The long-awaited addition of the 3rd Generation Pokemon is coming soon, with some ghostly goings on in the new Pokemon Go Halloween Update.

You can earn double Candy rewards from catching, hatching, and transferring Pokemon. You'll be able to catch a Pikachu while wearing a witch's hat. Also, your Buddy Pokemon will find Candy twice as fast.

Dataminers gave us the heads up already, but now we have a better sense of Pokemon Go's plans for Halloween and Generation 3.

As part of its in-game event, which kicks off on October 20 till November 20, Pokemon Go will introduce a handful of new creatures, including Sableye, Banette, and a few others described as 'ghost-type Pokemon'. Get a look at some of the ghostly Pokemon in the trailer above. More characters from the Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire games will start arriving in December, but for now, these rare Pokemons will be the catch of the season. Players can also get more candy than normal by having the avatar wear Mimikyu's Disguise Hat. This is no less true of Pokemon Go.

The in-game shop carries unique boxes containing Raid Passes, Super Incubators and more. There's no word on just how gradually the company intends to roll these Pokemon out, but we've reached out for comment just in case. In addition to being the ideal Halloween costume for Pikachu, the witch's hat is supposed to be an allusion to Mimikyu, an off-kilter version of Pikachu introduced in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon.
