First Gen 3 Pokemon Are Live In The Pokemon Go Halloween Event

The event will introduce Pokémon Go players to the first wave of generation 3 Pokémon and include a few other bonuses.


Pokémon Go is at its best when the many mobile players can rally around a specific event and the latest one is upon us. The special Halloween event for Pokémon Go players is live and will serve as the first introduction to PokéOrmon from the Hoenn region, otherwise known as generation three from Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. 

The Pokémon Go Halloween event is live as of 12:00 P.M. PDT today and will run until 1 P.M. PDT on November 2. In addition to the more spooky Pokémon like Sableye and Gastly setting the mood for this event, a special Pikachu will be out with its witch hat. You'll also be able to use that hat, called Mimikyu's Disguise Hate, on your avatar. 

During the special event, Candy rewards while out with your Buddy Pokémon will be doubled and there are special boxes in the in-game shop filled with things like Raid Passes and Super Incubators. Additional third generation Pokémon will start rolling out as early as December.
