Niantic announced the details of the Pokémon Go Halloween event for 2017, which begins Oct. 20 at noon PT and runs through Nov. 2 at 1 p.m. PT.
The Halloween event will introduce five Pokémon from the Hoenn region, the setting for Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. Third-generation Pokémon that will appear during the Halloween festivities are all ghost type, including Bannette, Dusclops, Duskull, Sableye and Shuppet.
Players will also be able to catch a version of Pikachu wearing a witch’s hat during the event.
Pokémon Go will also give players double candy rewards for catching and hatching Pokémon during the event. Additionally, buddy Pokémon will earn candy twice as fast.
Sale item boxes that include raid passes and super incubators will also be available. A Mimikyu avatar hat will be available during the Halloween event, although the creature isn’t expected to appear as a catchable Pokémon within the game.
Although only a few third-gen Pokémon will be let loose during the Pokémon Go Halloween event, more are expected to appear soon. Niantic said more Pokémon from the Hoenn region will gradually appear “as early as this December.”
