Pokémon GO Halloween 2022 Part II is well underway, featuring Pokémon in Spooky Festival outfits and 2× Candy bonuses!

But that’s not the only surprise we have in store. We know that Halloween is a special time for spooky stories and sweet treats, and that the best Halloween memories are made together with friends.

To that end, we have a special treat for active Trainers around the US: Niantic’s new social app, Campfire, is coming to Pokémon GO in select US cities! The app arrives just in time to help you coordinate Halloween Raid Battles. We’re working hard to bring Campfire to a city near you – once you’ve been granted Campfire access, you will receive a welcome email, so please keep an eye on your email inbox for more information soon!

Have a Happy Halloween, Trainers! Let’s GO!
