Not even Pokemon GO can escape the witching season as it readies itself for a bit of a treat, starting tomorrow. No it's not a trick, I promise.

As you could imagine this time of year we'll be seeing an increase in one particular Pokemon type – the spooky ghost ones. That's right, keep an eye out for Ghastly, Haunter, Gengar, and more from the 26th October to the 1st November.

It's not all about the spookier things however, Niantic has also got something sweet for us as you can earn double the amount of Candy each time you hatch, catch, and transfer Pokemon. The icing on the cake is that you can earn Candy four times as fast with your Buddy Pokemon so make the most of it this week, folks.

Grab the game on the App Store or on Google Play if you haven't done so yet, and happy hunting.
