Pokemon GO: Halloween Event – Everything You Need To Know | Gen 3 Pokemon & More

The big Halloween Event for Pokemon GO is available right now, and introduces a spooky sneak peak into the Generation 3 list of Pokemon. For the peroid of Oct. 20th to Nov. 2nd, ghost-type Pokemon will be more common than ever; Gastly, Cubone, and Drowzee are some of our old friends, but Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire finally get their due with the first set of Gen 3 Pokemon in Pokemon GO.

There’s more than just new Pokemon to find. During the Halloween event, you’ll also get a bunch of other bonuses — extra candy, new items in the shop, new outfits for your avatar, and a witch-hat wearing Pikachu are just for starters. Here, we’ll break down literally everything new you need to know about the Pokemon GO Halloween event.
