This Halloween, it’s scary how much fun you’ll have playing Pokémon GO. Starting October 23 at 1:00 p.m. PDT, Ghost-type and Dark-type Pokémon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region will start appearing, including Drifloon and Stunky. Plus, Trainers are in for an extra treat, earning double Candy for every Pokémon they catch until November 1 at 1:00 p.m. PDT.
During this time, Professor Willow will be calling on you to aid with new Special Research. He has noticed some strange occurrences near his lab and needs your help. Could a Pokémon be causing it all? Complete the Special Research to get to the bottom of this puzzle before time runs out. Also, look forward to Field Research featuring Ghost-type and Dark-type Pokémon over the course of the event.
If you’re looking to get your avatar into the Halloween spirit, new items featuring Ghost-type Pokémon are now available in the Style Shop, including a Drifloon beanie and a Gengar backpack.
Plus, the Legendary Pokémon Giratina will make its first appearance in Raid Battles. Be sure to challenge the Ghost- and Dragon-type Pokémon before it leaves on November 20 at 1:00 p.m. PST.
Enjoy the thrills and chills of ghostly Pokémon and new research tasks in Pokémon GO this Halloween!
