Halloween is right around the corner and Pokemon GO hopes you’ll open the game a few more times to celebrate. Starting on October 26th and running through November 1st, Niantic will be adding some special incentives for the spooky Holiday.
You will encounter more of the “spookiest Pokemon,” which includes ghosts like Gastly, Gengar, and Haunter, but also Zubat, Golbat, Drowzee, and Hypno. When you catch these Pokemon (and all other Pokemon) during the event, you will get double candies. Instead of just 3 candies, you will get 6. The Professor will also be getting into the trick-or-treat spirit. For every transfer, you will receive 2 candies instead of just 1.
The last incentive might be the best. During the 7-day event, your buddy Pokemon will find candy four times faster than usual. This will make a huge difference for people trying to evolve rare Pokemon. All of your walking will also be worth double candies when you hatch a new egg. This event is going to be a great time to get out and earn some rewards.
