Things are about to get a little spookier in our world, as Pokémon Go finally released details of their new Halloween event.

This will be Niantic's first event for Pokémon Go, but they have produced different events before for their other game, Ingress.

The Halloween event will allow trainers to catch the spookiest Pokémon in the first generation, including Drowzee, Gastly, Gengar, Golbat, Haunter, Hypno, and Zubat. The event will start on October 26th and end on November 1st. Previously, some of these Pokémon could only be caught in places like cemeteries or during the late night hours.

The extra sightings also come with extra Halloween candy. Pokémon that are caught and sent to the professor come with a double bonus. This means that any Pokémon caught will provide six candies, instead of the usual three, and any Pokémon that is sent back to Professor Willow will provide two candies, instead of one.

For those who are trying to evolve their Magikarp into a Gyrados, there's some good news as well. Buddy Pokémon also get their bonus of four times the extra candy, making the feat of collecting 400 Magikarp candies a bit easier.

There's no word on how much more frequently these Pokémon will appear, which can cause some trouble for those who live in places with high Zubat spawn rates -- already one of the most common Pokémon that trainers can catch in the game.

The event comes days after the latest Pokémon Go update. Many are wondering whether this event will also include a new tracking system that has been rolling out in only select cities so far for testing.

Many were also expecting the first event to include a legendary Pokémon, although the trailer proves this is not the case. There is no word when the first legendary will be released or where, but it will definitely be worth the wait.

Pokémon Go is available for iPhone and Android.
