JUST before Pokémon Go goes into overdrive with Halloween events, there’s still a week of light ahead.
Find out below what’s in store for Pokémon Go October 10-16.
Haunter shines in Spotlight Hour
Next week’s Spotlight Hour will take place on Tuesday, October 11 between 6pm and 7pm where Haunter will take center stage.
Unfortunately, the shiny version of Haunter will not be available at this event.
However, Haunter is a strong choice for Pokémon Go’s Evolution Cup, while the final evolution, Gengar, is great in all game types.
As a bonus to the event, Stardust rewards for catching Pokémon will be doubled.
Xerneas enters the raid cave
For the first time ever, there’s a chance to catch Shiny Xerneas during next week’s five-star raids.
The Raid Hour will take place on Wednesday, October 12 from 6pm to 7pm local time.
During this hour, all Gyms will turn into Xerneas Raids to give you the best chance of getting this rare Shiny.
Three leagues are available in Go Battle League
From Thursday 13th October at 21:00 UK time the leagues available in the Go Battle League are changing.
The Evolution Cup is out and the other two standard formats, Great League and Ultra League, will appear alternately.
The Master League continues, giving you three different leagues to choose from next week.
The Festival of Light is finally beginning
From Friday, October 14, at 10 a.m. local time, the Festival of Light will finally begin.
Morelull and Shiinotic are newcomers to the game and may appear in the wild or as research rewards.
The event will increase Chinchou’s shiny odds and give you a better than usual chance of catching this variant.
Look out for Litwick on Community Day
Next week’s Community Day is on Saturday, October 15 from 2pm to 5pm local time.
Litwick is the Pokemon of the Day and has a chance for a new Charged Attack, Poltergeist.
Chandelure can learn to deal large spirit damage as part of the event.
Litwick’s shiny rate will be increased dramatically, so this is your best chance at finding one.
