Everything that's changing in Pokémon Go:

• Trainers will earn double the amount of candy every time you catch, hatch and transfer Pokémon.

• Buddy Pokémon will earn candy at four times their normal rates.

• Ghastly, Gengar, Hypno, Golbat, Drowzee, Haunter and Zubat (ugh) will appear more often than normal.

In addition to the Halloween event, there are some new updates to Pokémon Go that change where certain Pokémon appear. The update also adds new color-coding for eggs, so be sure to read up on those changes too.
