Niantic Labs and The Pokémon Company has officially confirmed that Generation 3 Pokémon are coming to Pokémon Go this Halloween.
Following rumours and data miners discovering code for Gen. 3 Pokémon in the game, Niantic has now confirmed that they are indeed coming, but will begin with only Ghost-type including Sableye, Banette, and many others.
The Halloween event is set to arrive later today at 8pm BST through to November 2 and 9pm BST. During this time new mysterious Pokémon from the Hoenn region will appear as well as an increased number of Pokémon we’re all too familiar with such as Ghastly, Cubone, Misdreavus, Houndour, and many more.
As for the rest of the Gen. 3 Pokémon, Niantic has revealed that the rest of them will start to appear gradually from around December this year.
What’s more a special Pikachu will be appearing throughout the event with an adorable little witches hat, so look out for that little guy. Additional Candy is also to be rewarded for catching, hatching, and transferring Pokémon.
