Spooky Gen III Pokemon Coming to ‘Pokemon GO’ This Halloween!

Ghost-type Pokemon from Generation III will be available for the first time in Pokemon GO for their upcoming Halloween event! You’ll be able to encounter Sableye, Shuppet, Banette, Duskull, and Dusclops. Additionally, you can encounter a special Pikachu wearing a witch’s hat.

Older “spooky” Pokemon will be more common, including Zubat, Golbat, Crobat, Meowth, Persian, Cubone, Marowak, Gastly, Haunter, Gengar, Drowzee, Hypno, Misdreavus, Houndour, and Houndoom.

In terms of Halloween bonuses, players will get a special Mimikyu hat and earn twice as much Candy for catching Pokemon, hatching Eggs, and transferring Pokemon. Buddy Pokemon will find Candy twice as fast. There will also be special boxes on sale for Raid Passes and Super Incubators.

The Halloween event will run from noon on October 20th to 1 PM on November 2nd.

Niantic also announced that the rest of Gen III’s Pokemon will start to arrive in December. This means we’ll see Gen III TCG merchandise this spring!

    I really need to get more Houndour to then get a Houndoom. Ghastly and Zubat will be nice also since I need Gengar and Crobat.

    Generation III is coming! I am excited to get the Regi's via raid. I will definitely be working on building up for that. I need Steel-type Pokemon...
