Specifically, from Oct. 26 to Nov. 1, the game will have “increased global encounters” of Drowzee, Gastly, Gengar, Golbat, Haunter, Hypno and Zubat.
Finally, as players train their Buddy Pokemon during this Halloween event, they will receive four Pokemon Candy instead of one.
In a statement, Tatsuo Nomura, senior product manager at Niantic, commented:
It’s been incredible watching people explore their neighborhoods and catch wild Pokemon all summer. We would like to trick-or-treat in our own special way by giving trainers the chance to catch more Pokemon and earn extra candy this Halloween.
