Pokemon Go Trainers have just under a week to enjoy the new Halloween event and all its bonuses.
The game will go back to normal on November 1, at around 9pm in the UK. This will be for both Android and iOS players.
Increased ghost Pokemon spawns are currently in effect, while Trainers can also bag double Candy for every Pokemon caught.
They can also take on a new Gengar raid, although this will be hosted after the end of the current Halloween event.
On Saturday, November 3, there will be a Special Raid Challenge for three hours, going live at 10am in the UK.
Gengar will be featured in Raid Battles, while Trainers will receive up to five Raid Passes from nearby Gyms at no cost.
A Shiny Gengar will also be available to catch during these encounters, although the chances of finding one will be low.
For those Trainers looking for a new Gen 4 Pokemon to catch, Niantic is planning something a little different next week.
The Gen 3 Shedinja is coming to the game on November 1 and will be available for the rest of the month only.
This was announced by the Pokemon Go team on Twitter, revealing that Shedinja will be unlockable through new research tasks.
“Get ready, Trainers. Field Research tasks focusing on Bug-type Pokémon are coming this November,” Niantic confirms.
“Collect enough stamps during November to earn a Research Breakthrough and get an opportunity to catch Shedinja.”
Trainers have also been told that a new Shiny will be added to the game soon, which will unlock several new variants to unlock.
Caterpie will be available to catch in gold instead of green very soon, with all its evolutions sporting different colours too.
Fans can also expect the launch of a very big update this week which will change how the game works for many people.
Adventure Sync was announced earlier this week by Niantic and will allow fans to track their walking distance, even when the app is not open.
This will also add up into in-game progress, which will unlock new rewards for active players.
Adventure Sync will work in the background to tally distance, earn Candy, and hatch Eggs, something that could prove very popular.
And push notifications will be used to inform players when their Buddy Pokémon has found a Candy or when an Egg is about to hatch.
So there shouldn’t be a drop in Trainer control, with the Adventure Sync system set to roll out to Trainers worldwide very soon.
Here’s the latest on the next big update for Pokemon Go, with Niantic explaining: “Adventure Sync, which is first being implemented in Pokémon GO, gives players the ability to record their steps with just the phone in their pockets.
“This key feature unlocks a wide variety of gameplay opportunities on the Niantic Real World Platform, serving as an efficient and phone-friendly high-engagement tool that inspires players to head out into their local communities.
“We’re looking forward to finding new and exciting ways to implement it in our other games in the future.
“It’s no surprise that Pokémon GO Trainers love to get outside and walk. So far in 2018, Trainers have already walked an astonishing 53 per cent more while playing Pokémon GO than they did in 2017.
“In a recent international survey of nearly 2,000 Trainers, we found that 70% felt that playing Pokémon GO had motivated them to walk more on average, and 64% said that playing the game motivated them to go outdoors.
“Additionally, 47% of Trainers indicated that they felt their physical activity level had increased since playing, and the same number felt that playing Pokémon GO helped them connect with others.
“This type of response from the community reinforces our commitment to not only create innovative, real-world games but also to invest in features like Adventure Sync, which provides a gentle but effective motivation loop that encourages people to get outside and be active every day.”
