“Hoenn confirmed!” At least that’s what “Pokemon GO” players are now saying, following an announcement from Niantic. The third generation of Pokemon are beginning their rollout, starting with an assortment of ghost-types for Halloween.
A new video from Niantic announced the launch of the Halloween event, wherein players will gain double the candy and can obtain a special Mimikyu hat (an early introduction for the 7th generation Pokemon to the game). Special Pikachu will also be available, wearing a new hat for the holiday.
However, what will undoubtedly get the most attention are the new ghost-type Pokemon: Duskull and Dusclops, Shuppet and Banette, and Sableye. The remaining 3rd generation Pokemon will be released later on, and according to the video description, “as early as December.”
The “Pokemon GO” Halloween event begins October 20th, and will run until November 2nd. Check it out in the video below!
