Ghost Type Pokemon Coming In 'Pokemon Go' Halloween Update

The Pokemon GO Halloween event 2017 is knocking at the door, and trainers that participate can look forward to some pretty exciting stuff.

Pokemon Go most recently added Mewtwo and the three Johto legendary beasts, but still has not added the entirety of generation one or two.

This includes: Shuppet, Duskull and Dusclops, although there could also be a few other surprises being cooked up.

Luckily, Lulu's handler is adopting her - regardless of her disinterest in a technical career with law enforcement. Now, rather than detecting potential explosives , Lulu is able to sniff out rabbits and squirrels.

The Halloween event will start tomorrow, October 20, at 12:00 p.m. PDT and run through till November 2 at 1:00 p.m. PDT, so you'll have plenty of time to bust some ghosts.

It's not clear if these new Pokemon will stick around afterward; Niantic have confirmed that the rest of the Gen 3 pack won't arrive until December. A special edition Pikachu in a cute witch's hat will be available to catch during the event. Those of you who like to dress up your avatar will appreciate being able to don the all-new Mimikyu Disguise Hat.

Niantic added that a number of other features are still in the works as there are a number of things that they want to add such as player-versus-player and trading.

You're stuck with the Xbox One S console, a stand, the Xbox One controller, and a 14-day trial to Xbox Live Gold. Recently the developer has shared their details on the next update that is being planned for the Xbox One .

If creepy-looking Pokemon aren't your cup of tea, Pokemon GO's Halloween event still has something for you. Candy rewards for catching, hatching and transferring Pokemon are doubled.

Trainers will have the chance to pick up special boxes from the in-game shop which will contain items such as Super Incubators and Raid Passes.

There's also evidence to suggest that a new Halloween-themed map display may appear at night.
