Pokemon GO Halloween Event 2017 Starts October 20

Here, we'll break down literally everything new you need to know about the Pokemon GO Halloween event. Several new characters will be available, including Sableye, Banette, as well as a "few other ghost-type pokemon", according to Niantic. You can also earn virtual candy alongside the real candy from trick or treating.

There's also, of course, Pikachu wearing a new type of hat.

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.
