Halloween is right around the corner and Niantic has jumped onboard the hype bandwagon by announcing an in-game event for Pokemon GO players.
Niantic Has a Wonderful Treat for Pokemon GO Players for Halloween
It’s Halloween season and we have a treat for you! From October 26th to November 1st, you’ll earn double the amount of Candy every time you catch, hatch and transfer Pokémon! Don’t forget your Buddy Pokémon, because they will help you earn Candy four times as fast.
If you encounter more spooky Pokémon than normal, don’t be startled, they want to enjoy the fun too! Scare up some friends, grab your buddy and enjoy this spooky, fun celebration with us!
You read the above statement from Niantic absolutely correct. From October 26th till the first of November, players will be able to earn 'double the amount of Candy' every single time you 'catch, hatch and transfer' a Pokemon. If you were looking for a good incentive to start playing the game again, now's the time to do so.
The story doesn't end there either, Niantic made the effort in creating a video outlining their plan as well. Check it out below.
As ever, Pokemon GO is absolutely free to download and play. The game is accompanied by a bunch of in-app purchases which users can utilize to enhance their gameplay further. Be careful though, as the game gets addictive, it's likely you'll start burning through your iTunes credit at a rampant pace.
Hit the links below in order to download the game right away on your device.
If you haven't tried the game at all then you should do so right away. It's free after all, and since the Halloween is near, you can kick things off with a bang by earning double the amount of candy.
The Pokemon GO hype has died down in the past few weeks but there is a chance the company might revive it using a couple of neat tricks. For example, VR support might boost the credentials of the game by a huge margin. Furthermore, Android Wear support will help the title in a lot of ways as well. But of course, there's no telling when these requests might be fulfilled.
We will keep our readers posted as more updates arrive in the coming weeks, so stay tuned to our coverage.
