Halloween in 2018 is the third Halloween event in Pokémon GO.

Features

Ghost-type and Dark-type Pokémon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region, such as Drifloon and Stunky, could be seen more frequently in the wild. The Renegade Pokémon, Giratina, made its first appearance in Raid Battles as a Raid Boss until November 20th.[1]

Unlike the two previous Halloween events, rather than receiving double Candy for all game actions including reduced Buddy distance, the only task where Candy was doubled was catching Pokémon.
