'Pokemon Go’ Halloween Special Latest News & Updates: Gotta Catch Em All Ghost Pokemon Treats and Double the Candy
From October 26 through November 1, Niantic disclosed that "Pokemon Go" will hold an extra spooky Halloween event with a more generous amount of candy treats and additional Ghost Pokemon appearances.
A trailer for the first "Pokemon Go" event has been released with a preview of what to expect in the event. Trainers can collect double Candy rewards through a series of actions every time they catch, hatch, walk, or transfer a Pokemon. In addition, their Buddy Pokemon gains Pokemon Candy four times faster than the usual.
Though the series of activities can double the Candy, evolving a Pokemon does not earn a bonus. Also, only Halloween Pokemon will be attracted to the lures and incense; regular Pokemon still spawn at their nests.
An increased spawn rate for Ghostly Pokemon is offered as well. It's the time of the year for trainers to go outdoors again for Drowzee, Gastly, Gengar, and Golbat to add to their collection or catch em all of Haunter, Hypno, and Zubat to be included in their Pokedex. Cubones, Marowaks, and Meowths raise the number of frequent spawns from seven to ten.
Finding a good catch is easier with the return of "Pokemon Go" map tracker, FastPokeMap online. With a click on your mobile, this app can also redirect players to Google Maps so they can catch em all of their favorite monsters.
With the recent drop in the App Store rankings of the popular mobile game, this live Halloween offer is a good news and even a delightful Halloween treat for "Pokemon Go" players and its community to download again or get back from their hiatus and even make profit off of the game.
A few moments after the double candy update, "Pokemon Go" goes back in the top of the charts. The festival's better rewarding system attracts players to return back and perhaps might work to make them stick around for a longer time.
