Pokemon Go Halloween Party

Episode 51: The frightening fifty-first episode of the PokeProblemsPodcast! Miz Sylver tells us about her weekend in New York for the League of Legends Championships Semi-Finals, where she was working at the Riftwalk. She was really impressed with the cosplayers! She talked with the women of Spiral Cats and the truly phenomenal Rhoulette Cosplay. We talk about a lot of events, happening this weekend, next weekend, and the FUTURE:
  • BattleFy is hosting Splatoon Tournaments! If you are missing the Splatfests as much as Miz Sylver does, you should hit her up on Twitter (@mzsylver) to get psyched!
  • Smite players! The Reaping: Part III is happening over this weekend, it gets you bonus gems!
  • It's National Halloween StreetPass Weekend! Lots of other Nintendo games like Disney Magical World, YoKai Watch 2, Dragon Quest 7, and Monster Hunter Generations have free DLC to celebrate, check out the link for details.
  • Of course, we touch on all the official Nintendo Switch announcements. The Wolf Doctor is tentatively excited.
  • Did you see the reveals of the final evolutions of the Alolan starters?
  • The Mythical Pokémon of November is Genesect! Get the cards with the download codes at GameStop Nov 1-24. Go early, they often run out!
  • There's a Pokémon TCG Event at Toys 'R' Us (all locations!) on Sunday October 30th, from 2 to 4pm. You can get a free foil Charmander promo card and an XY—Evolutions Collector's Album (Volume 1 of 2). Plus, if you're one of the first 50 attendees, you'll get a special Pokemon figure!
  • Pokemon Go is having a special Halloween event, lasting through November 1st. You get double candy on catching, releasing, and hatching Pokemon, and quadruple candy when walking your buddy Pokemon. The appearance rate of many spooooooky Pokemon has greatly increased. Expect to see Gastlys, Haunters, Gengars, Meowths, Drowzees, Hypnos, Cubones, Marowaks, Zubats, and Golbats way more frequently than usual! (Also, we greatly appreciate the new Gengar loading screen!)

Thanks for listening! If you have any questions or comments, we want to hear from you. Are you going to watch the League of Legends Championships tonight? Do you love the Alolan staters? Are you dressing as Gengar for Halloween? Tweet, email, or comment on the blog or Facebook to let us know!
