Millions of gamers around the world play Pokemon GO, making it one of the most popular games today. Niantic and The Pokemon Company have been very vigorous in releasing updates to keep players engaged with the game. In fact, it was announced recently that a new batch of Pokemon would be introduced in the upcoming Halloween event.
“October is here, and that means one thing: it’s time to start gearing up for Halloween! To help celebrate this spooky season, we’ve gathered together all the frightful fun that we’ve been working hard to bring you. Where will you go first? Make your choice, and prepare for a hauntingly good time!”
The Pokemon Company revealed what is in store for the Pokemon GO players this Halloween on Monday, Oct. 2. The Japanese company said that several kinds of stuff are coming later this month. It was also confirmed that gamers would be able to carve pumpkins again as part of the Halloween celebrations.
“The Halloween season is a special time in Pokémon GO. Plenty of good stuff is coming to the game later this October, and we can’t wait to get out and about to see what sort of excitement we can scare up while catching new Pokémon to fill out our Pokédex.”
This year, new stencils were added to bring more excitement including Alolan Meowth, Mimikyu, Popplio, Litten, and Rowlet among others. For starters, these stencils would help gamers create jack-o-lanterns. Pokemon GO players just need to grab the photos and start carving.
“Carving pumpkins is a popular Halloween tradition, so why not make your gourds a little more exciting with the addition of Pokémon? These awesome stencils will help guide you to having the coolest jack-o’-lanterns on the block.”
Niantic is known for hosting special events during holidays, so fans are not surprised to know about the imminent Halloween event. However, some players suggest that Generation 3 Pokemon might be released in the up and coming Pokemon GO event. BGR claims that there is a huge chance of having the next wave of pocket monsters next month after The Pokemon Company mentioned “new Pokemon” in its most recent blog post.
