OH boy! As one of the five last people playing Pokémon Go I’m pretty darn excited by this! Those who stopped playing are missing out as it’s proven that playing increases one’s physical activity by 25%, which was the whole point of the game.
For Halloween Pokemon GO has just rolled out spooky spawnings of haunters, cubones and other groovy ghoulies. AND you get more candy every time you catch a monster or transfer a Pokémon! So what are you waiting for? Get out there!
If you play Pokémon Go from October 26th to November 1st, you might notice an increase in spooky apparitions. That’s totally intentional!
As the trailer for Pokémon Go’s seasonal event states, the mobile game will be celebrating Halloween. Trainers will enjoy an increase in candy rewards, which is very appropriate. Niantic says that having a Buddy ‘mon active will net you four times the usual rewards, catching monsters will give you six candies, and transfers will be worth two candies. It’s a bonanza.
