Niantic has started posting teasers for this year’s Halloween event in the mobile AR game. While details still sparse, the company also tweeted out a silhouette of the Generation 5 Pokemon Litwick – hinting that it would feature more heavily during the festive event.

For now, fans are expecting Niantic to improve spawns for the candle Pokemon – thus making it easier to encounter and catch. It’s also possible that Niantic will introduce Shiny Litwick into the game for a limited time.
We’ll report back when we hear more official info. Stay tuned!
