Pokémon GO has been pretty good about hosting new events to celebrate the coming of milestone moments throughout the year, often coinciding with holidays to bring special bonuses to the game that entice lapsed players back into the fold. Last year’s Halloween event was quite successful, bringing the game back to the top of the iPhone charts and hitting ever higher levels of user engagement. Now, Niantic has announced that it’ll be doing another Halloween event.

Details are scarce on the ground right now, but if it’s anything like last year, expect a lot of Ghost-types to be popping up, and maybe some extra candy handouts, too. Here’s the official blurb form the Pokémon site:

The Halloween season is a special time in Pokémon GO. Plenty of good stuff is coming to the game later this October, and we can't wait to get out and about to see what sort of excitement we can scare up while catching new Pokémon to fill out our Pokédex.

Stay tuned for more details about Pokémon GO's Halloween event coming soon!
