Pokemon GO: When Does the 2017 Halloween Event End?

Pokemon GO: When Does the 2017 Halloween Event End?

Fans may have to wait until tomorrow when the new Pokemon Go event kicks off to find out for sure.

Starting from October 20 at 12PM PDT, and running through November 2 at 1PM PDT, players will begin to see new Ghost-type Pokemon like Sableye, Banette when out hunting. A special edition Pikachu in a cute witch's hat will be available to catch during the event.

The announcement for the Pokemon Go event comes about a year after the first of its in-game events initiated with the first Halloween celebration, followed by the expansion of augmented reality in gaming and various other segments of the tech industry.

Existing Ghost-type Pokemon such as: Gastly, Cubone, Misdreavus, Houndour will be more common.

As one could assume, this is just the start of the Gen 3 roll out.

The long-awaited addition of the 3rd Generation Pokemon is coming soon, with some ghostly goings on in the new Pokemon Go Halloween Update.

A special Pikachu celebrating the even will be out and about in an all-new costume as well. Finally, you'll be able to grab the Mimikyu Disguise Hat for your avatar to wear. Niantic is also asking game players to use the Pokemon GO AR camera to take "festive" Halloween photos and share them on social media using the hashtag #PokemonGOHalloween. The Halloween event 2017 will mark the arrival of Generation 3 Pokemon to the game. Time to dust off your Silph Scopes, trainers, because things are about to get spooky.
