The event will take place starting on October 26 and ending on November 1. During the event players will have an increased chance of catching Drowzee, Gastly, Gengar, Golbat, Haunter, Hypno, and Zubat.

Players will also get the added benefit of getting six candies from any Pokemon they catch. Buddy Pokemon will also accumulate four candies, instead of one.
