Pokemon Go enthusiasts, it’s time to get spooky: Niantic has detailed what you can expect from the game’s now-classic Halloween event this year, when it kicks of later this week (on Friday, October 15).
Pokemon Go Halloween 2021 – which also goes by the name Halloween Mischief – will be split into two parts; Creepy Companions and Ghoulish Pals. Throughout the entire event (including both parts listed above), you will be able to get 2x Candy from transfers, catching and hatching. You’ll also get guaranteed Candy XL when you’re walking with your chosen buddy.
The coolest new mechanic that arrives with this Halloween update, though, relates to Pokemon sizes. Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist, which will arrive in time for the event, will evolve differently depending on the size of the creature you capture. The larger the Pumpkaboo, the larger the Gourgeist you can evolve it into.
