The month of October is always a great opportunity to see Halloween themed content in games. Niantic will even take the game of tricks and treats to Pokémon GO in two parts and with a very scary schedule (in a good way). The event Pokémon GO Halloween Treat starts this Friday (15th) and runs until October 31st, at 8 pm (Brasilia time).
The story of this event is inspired by the Mythical Pokémon Hoopa. Niantic claims that players who participate in a special survey about the season get the chance to be part of an event that would have “some relationship” with Hoopa himself. That’s at the end of the season.
These special surveys will be made available at each part of the event. And there’s more: Psychic, Ghost, and Dark-type Pokémon will be on the loose to be hunted – as it couldn’t be otherwise! In addition to these, many other little monsters will be discovered for the first time in Pokémon GO.
Two-part event throughout the month
As said before, the event Pokémon GO Halloween Treat it will have two stages and each one with its own surprises and prizes. From the 15th (from 10 am – Brasília time) to the 22nd of October, face the Scary Partners. In this step, prepare your Poké Ball, as Pokémon of the Psychic and Poisonous types will be waiting for you.
In this first part, Galarian Slowking (affectionately known as the Pokémon Witch) will debut in the game. In addition to this one, keep an eye on Spinarak Brilhante – which will also debut in Pokémon GO.
