Pokémon GO Halloween Event Introduces Gen III

All the rumors were true! Generation III Pokémon will be coming to Pokémon GO during this year’s Halloween event. Players can capture some of the Hoenn region’s resident Ghost-types and more!

From October 20 until November 2, there will be new Pokémon to catch such as Duskull and Banette. In addition to them will be a special Pikachu wearing a witch’s hat. Trainer avatars can also dress up using a Mimikyu disguise which clearly means Pokémon GO is not shying away from including goodies from the most recent seventh generation. Candy rewards will be doubled and gained faster because it is Halloween after all.

Prepare your mobile devices for a ghostly adventure in the coming weeks! Watch the announcement trailer below for a look at what’s to come!
