Get Extra Candy During Pokemon Go In-Game Event!

A Pokemon Go Halloween in-game event is starting up this Wednesday, and there’s going to be an increase in spooky Pokemon encounters.

Increased Zubats and extra candy!? Ok Pokemon Go I’m coming back.

Well, maybe not for the Zubats but definitely for all that extra candy. Check out all of the details below.

via a press release from the Pokémon Company’s website:

This Halloween, players of the popular Pokémon GO mobile game will experience exciting treats from Niantic Labs, Inc.and The Pokémon Company International. Beginning Wednesday, October 26, through Tuesday, November 1, Pokémon GO Trainers will have the chance to catch some of the spookiest Pokémon available in the game with increased global encounters of DrowzeeGastlyGengarGolbatHaunterHypno, and, yes, Zubat. And, since it wouldn’t be Halloween without candy, Trainers will have the opportunity to earn more Pokémon Candy during this event as they explore the world around them in search of Pokémon.

“It’s been incredible watching people explore their neighborhoods and catch wild Pokémon all summer,” said Tatsuo Nomura, senior product manager at Niantic, Inc. “We would like to trick-or-treat in our own special way by giving Trainers the chance to catch more Pokémon and earn extra Candy this Halloween.”

During this period, every Pokémon caught will earn Trainers six Candies—twice the normal amount. The professor will also give Trainers two Candies instead of one for every Pokémon transferred to him. In addition, Buddy Pokémon will award four candies instead of the usual one. Pokémon Candies enable Trainers to evolve or strengthen their Pokémon, so players will want to walk and catch all the Pokémon they can to get their fill of Candy during this special event.


The Nintendo Switch Revealed!

Nintendo has finally revealed details on the NX and it now has a new official name: Switch!

I’m super excited about the portability of it, and impressed that they managed to turn one controller into 2.

Reminded a bit of the GameCube after watching the Switch trailer. In the sense that it was small, and came with a handle with the notion of being a console you could easily take to your friends house.

I can’t wait to check out more Switch!

Gargoyle Rhapsody Tee


I’m a fan of the late 90’s animated series Gargoyles, and you never really get to see any gear for the show. So that makes this t-shirt pretty cool, and it’s $10, which is also cool.

It’s only available today for this price, you can find it here.

Uchiha Sarada Glasses Acquired!

I’m constantly chasing character or game themed eye frames, and I’ve just added a new pair to the collect, Uchiha Sarada’s!


I ordered these from OtakuMode, which carries a few really nice frames. Including a Chun Li pair which I’ll be posting about soon. The Sarada frames were priced at $90.24, and come with a fully themed case and cloth cleaner with Sarada on it. The frames themselves has her name printed on it and the sharingan on each tip.
