Pokemon Go Halloween Event 2019 What to Expect

Trainers, the next Halloween event in Pokemon Go is just around the corner and like every year since the launch of the game, we expect to see new Ghost and Dark Type Pokemon and new, cool bonuses.

During the last two Pokemon Go Halloween events, Niantic introduced new Ghost type Pokemon (Gen 3 2017) and new Ghost and Dark type Pokemon (Gen 4 2018) and we expect to see new Ghost and Dark Type Pokemon from Gen 5 during the Halloween event 2019, 2x Catch, Hatch Candy Bonus and 2x Buddy Candy. We also expect to see a new Special Research featuring Darkrai.
