Like previous events, there will be a special Pikachu for the event. In addition to being the flawless Halloween costume for Pikachu, the witch's hat is supposed to be an allusion to Mimikyu, an off-kilter version of Pikachu introduced in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon.
The Pokemon GO event runs through October 20th to November 2nd, introducing the first ghostly Gen 3 Pokemon before the full roll-out in December.
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. Those of you who like to dress up your avatar will appreciate being able to don the all-new Mimikyu Disguise Hat. There's not just new Pokemon to capture, but also, of course, a lot of candy.
