I didn’t know about this until after it started, when I was seeing Gastlies, Gastlies, everywhere and getting 6 candies apiece for catching them. Then eventually I googled the right words: Pokemon Go 6 candies. According to this site, Pokemon Go is having a “Halloween event” now through November 1:
- Every Pokémon catch rewards six candies instead of three
- Professor gives you two candies for every Pokémon you transfer to him instead of one
- Buddy Pokémon reward you candy 4x faster than usual
- 2x as much candy from egg hatches
- In addition, Zubat, Golbat, Gastly, Haunter, Gengar, Drowzee, and Hypno will be “much more common” during the event.
Trick or treat!
