Niantic has fully detailed the highly-anticipated Pokémon GO Halloween 2018 event, which begins on October 23 at 1 p.m. PDT. Ghost-type and Dark-type Pokémon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region, such as Drifloon, Drifblim, Stunky and Skuntank, will make their Pokémon GO debuts. Shiny Drifloon and Shiny Drifblim will also be available for the first time. Trainers will also be able to earn double Candy for every Pokémon caught until November 1 at 1 p.m. PDT. During this event, Professor Willow will need your help on some limited-time Special Research. You’ll be tasked with completing Special Research tasks featuring Spiritomb before it goes away.
You’ll also be able to participate in Field Research featuring Ghost-type and Dark-type Pokémon throughout the event. Plus, the Renegade Pokémon, Giratina, will make its first appearance in Raid Battles. This Ghost- and Dragon-type Legendary Pokémon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region has emerged from the Distortion World for an extended time, so challenge it before it leaves on November 20 at 1 p.m. PST. New avatar items featuring Ghost-type Pokémon are now available in the Style Shop, including a Drifloon Cap and a Gengar Backpack.
