A Psychic Spectacular has started in Pokémon GO! Psychic-type Pokémon, such as Abra and Ralts, have increased spawn rates until October 14, 2018, at 1:00 PM PDT. The event also features a new sale, new avatar clothing, and some special Field Research.
Shiny Drowzee has been released as a part of this event. Also a special Pikachu and Kantonian Raichu with hats, including a very rare Shiny variant. This comes only a few days after Shiny Krabby and Spinda #1 were released as a part of the monthly research shakeup. SOURCE: Niantic
2. HINTS AT HALLOWEEN
An official Pokémon GO newsletter was sent out this week that hints towards an upcoming event in its final passage. The passage says, "Trainers, some breaking news! Professor Willow is reporting that some spooky happenings are going on nearby. Could it be the work of a Ghost-type Pokémon? Stay tuned to find out!"
This appears to hint towards the annual Halloween event, as the newsletter did with Adventure Week earlier this year, proving the Psychic Spectacular is only a preview of the event to come. SOURCE: Pokémon GO Newsletter
The game also suffered from some serious glitches this week. First, as Niantic began to restore lost Field Research, there was a glitch that allowed some Trainers the opportunity to catch a second Celebi and Mew! Second was the further cancellation of EX Raid Passes. As the first Deoxys Raids occurred, some were cancelled with minutes to go before the Raid was scheduled to start. SOURCE: Community Reports
4. USUM EVENTS
Two new events are ongoing in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon during the month of October. The first is the opportunity to get the Legendary Pokémon Reshiram or Zekrom as part of the Year of Legendary Pokémon. The second is the first-ever opportunity to get the Mythical Pokémon Zeraora.
