Here, we'll break down literally everything new you need to know about the Pokemon GO Halloween event.

It's not clear if these new Pokemon will stick around afterward; Niantic have confirmed that the rest of the Gen 3 pack won't arrive until December.

Witch-Hat Pikachu can also be found and captured in the wild during the Halloween event. In addition to being the flawless Halloween costume for Pikachu, the witch's hat is supposed to be an allusion to Mimikyu, an off-kilter version of Pikachu introduced in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. To celebrate, Sableye, Banette, and "a few other Ghost-type Pokemon originally discovered in the Hoenn region" will be the first generation three Pokemon to come to the game. "Finally, players will be able to wear the all-new avatar item, Mimikyu's Disguise Hat, created in the likeness of the mysterious Disguise Pokemon Mimikyu". The event will also allow players to earn twice as much candy with their Buddy Pokemon, from the usual activities of catching, hatching and transferring Pokemon. Special boxes from the in-game shop will offer items like Raid Passes and Super Incubators. It will run until November 2 at 1:00 P.M. PDT. Most importantly, trailers will have the chance to catch Ghost-type Pokemon from Generation 3 (Sapphire and Ruby), along with already there. This is no less true of Pokemon Go. So, the more you walk, hatch, and otherwise farm your Pokemon, the more food you can stuff them full of and level them up.
