This is Pokemon Go’s first confirmed ‘event’, and Niantic (makers of Pokemon Go) are luring you back into Pokemon Go by holding a Halloween event that rewards you in various ways.
The main part of the video shows that these 7 Pokemon: Hypno, Drowzee, Haunter, Zubat, Ghastly, Gengar and Golbat, will be easier to catch, and increases the chance to catch them.
To keep Pokemon Go players returning, Niantic are motivating Pokemon Trainers by rewarding you with treats, and you will be able to earn double the amount of candies for catching Pokemon, as well as quadruple the amount of candies you receive while walking with your Pokemon in the buddy feature. You can do this while walking around town, not specifically at Halloween time but from the 26th of October to the 1’st of November.
This is only a small event, and we can look forward to all the upcoming events such as shown in the Pokemon Go trailer:
We already know that some of the features presented here did come to Pokemon Go such as the upcoming trading system, so we can be assured that more events such as this small Halloween one will be something that we can all enjoy.
