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 PokĂ©mon catch rewards six candies instead of three
  • Professor gives you two candies for every PokĂ©mon you transfer to him instead of one
  • Buddy PokĂ©mon 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!
