Spooky Updates For Pokemon Go

By Nicolas See Tho on Oct 4, 2017

October season is here and if you are a Pokemon fan, then you know it's time for those Halloween Pokemon goodies, and that's coming soon in the latest Pokemon Go updates. Here is the statement for the upcoming Halloween event for Pokemon Go.

"The Halloween season is a special time in Pokémon GO. Plenty of good stuff is coming to the game later this October, and we can't wait to get out and about to see what sort of excitement we can scare up while catching new Pokémon to fill out your Pokédex."

Additionally, those following the Pokemon series can look forward to a Halloween themed special episode collection whereby all the journeys into haunted houses and scary alleys will be combined into a 2 episode long special. Pokemon Sun and Moon players can also prepare to enjoy a special distribution of Marshadow, in certain regions. Marshadow thus far is the only known Ghost and Fighting-type Pokemon and it is available for regions with Gamestops. Our advice, if you have a pen pal in America, ask them to nab one of these codes for you.

Coming back to Pokemon Go, Niantic has stated that there will be spooky encounters with Gen 1, Gen 2 and even a chance of Gen 3 Pokemon.Last year, we had an increase of Ghost Pokemon appearances happen during the Halloween period, thus this year, we might see more Houndour, Houndoom, Sneasel and Murkrow being added into the fray.

As for the inclusion of Gen 3 Pokemon, it was hinted back during the Mobile World Congress that there will be major updates to the game for 2017, thus the inclusion of Gen 3 Pokemon would most likely be not too far an update. 

We hope you are as excited as we are for these spooky Pokemon and their special encounters.
