Pokemon: Go for Halloween + Sun/Moon Final Starter Evolutions Leaked

2016-10-26-19-01-37

I’d heard about the Pokemon Go update previously, but lots of thanks to Wilhelm for reminding me about the Halloween event! I know that it only lasts for a few days, but I have to say that the bonuses it gives was enough to entice me to pick the app back up (though I already had plans to use it more with the cooler weather rolling in).

So they’ve added a number of spooky Pokemon to the list that show up more often, and you get double the candy for captures and transfers. Your buddy Pokemon also gains candy at a highly accelerated rate. See video below.

While they list a number of ghost type Pokemon here, I’ve also noticed a vast increase in Meowth and Cuebones.

How is this working? Oh man… the game is so much more fun this way. I launched it to see what I could see and actually have been able to catch Pokemon from my desk at work, which was never the case before this. I can walk around my work parking lot and just rack the catches up because the spawning Halloween Pokemon have a high rate in between the Pokemon who are generally out there.

I took advantage of the double candy rates, too, cleaning out my stock of commons and earning some evolutions I didn’t have before.

And, of course, catching all the ghost type Pokemon that I’ve never seen anywhere else before…

It’s exciting to see my Buddy Pokemon earning candy so fast. I’ve been out there walking as much as I can since the weather is nice and the rewards are high.

I earned a new achievement from all this yesterday…

And I leveled up, too!

Yes, I know. Only level 19. But I’m not in a rush. 🙂

Pokemon Sun and Moon Evolutions

So it seems that the final evolution for the Sun and Moon starters have been leaked, and then released right after I wrote this. I’m a little disappointed that the previously-leaked designs were actually true. Early stages mean nothing if the final evolution, which you’ll be looking at for the rest of the game, isn’t appealing.

I wanted to pick Litten as my starter, but I’m just not a fan of the final evolution. I loved it all the way up until that point. So, while I’ve never picked a grass type Pokemon starter before, I think this time around, I’ll go with Rowlet. I was teetering on picking him anyhow, so let’s see how this goes!

I haven’t yet checked out the demo, but I hope to this weekend.

  1. That is just always the way in Pokemon, the final evolution of your starter Pokemon tends to be dubious at best. I remember holding back evolution on my Piplup back in the day, and his evolutions weren’t that bad. But you don’t get your best moves unless you evolve. Ah well.

    1. Yeah. I don’t think Litten’s final is terrible, but it’s just not appealing to me. Plus I almost always pick a Fire starter, so maybe it’s time to try something different this time! 🙂
