New Datamine Shows There's More To Pokemon Go's Upcoming Halloween Treat

Pokemon Go's Halloween 2017 event still hasn't been officially announced, but we'll keep everyone posted. But, it looks like there is more coming to the game apart from this spooky-themed update.

There's sure to be more going on in the Halloween bash than just adde Pokemon and hats, so we'll bring you more news on this as we get it.

But in the 0.79.2 update for the game, fan community The Silph Road, dug deep into the code behind the update and discovered a loading screen that features third-generation Pokemon that fit the creepy theme of Halloween.

Biloxi (Miss.) district removes "To Kill a Mockingbird" from 8th-grade curriculum
A member of the school board told the newspaper that the decision was made last week, and was not voted on by the board. It ranked No. 21 on the ALA's list of the most banned or challenged books from 2000 to 2009.

According to fan community The Silph Road, the latest "Pokemon Go" update included a new loading screen featuring generation three Pokemon - Shuppet, Banette, Dusclops, Duskull, and Sableye - none of which are now available in the game. Below them is a Trainer character, surrounded by pumpkins, which can be seen wearing a Mimikyu hat, possibly to promote "Pokemon Ultra Sun" and "Pokemon Ultra Moon," which are coming to Nintendo 3DS on November 17. The game file also contains sounds for Pokemon species up to Pokedex entry 386 or Deoxys. We expect to see those five released during the Halloween event with the remaining generation three Pokemon appearing shortly thereafter. Naturally, this led to a lot of rumors being made that claimed to have inside information on the plans of Niantic and players began their frustrations with the false rumor mill being produced. Does this mean that these new Pokemon will be introduced into the game during the Halloween event?

After the Legendary Summer in Pokemon Go, players began to turn that their attention to the next desired major addition to the game, the 3rd generation of Pokemon from Hoenn.
