Pokemon Go October 2021 Event Schedule

October has officially arrived, and we all know that it is the favorite month of many Pokemon GO players, packed with many events, bonuses, weekly bundles, Special Research quests, and much more.

Niantic has never failed to tell us that October is their favorite month too. Every Halloween event since the launch of the game back in 2016 has been exciting and filled with many holiday-inspired elements.

Last year was a total success, but the question is, will Halloween 2021 be better than Halloween 2020?
