And the poll results show…

..an overwhelming vote in favor of re-running the previous event while the winter event is being re-added. And thus the Halloween event is now live again! For those who didn’t participate in the previous event, you can start this event by speaking to a Driftblim that is floating around Oldpine Town:

Then when you have satisfied Drifty’s request, you may talk to the tree nearby to warp to Driftwood Town:

That is indeed a nice tree.. (thank you to  jimyjohn97 for providing this screensho!t)

Once there, it will follow the familiar storyline and contain the Halloween Pokes that appeared during this past event in October.

.. But that’s not all! Upon completing the Halloween storyline chapters an NPC will appear in the Driftwood Pokemon Center with a little nod to the lost summer event. It isn’t the same storyline as the original summer event, but you will run into some new foes and some old favorite wild Pokemon that was once only available during the Summer event.

Yes, even that frustrating fishing guru is lurking about again.

Last but not least, that annoying princess that hoarded Magikarp also appears upon completion of the Halloween storyline! She was lost during the rollback and is once again looking for people to part with their prized Magikarp in exchange for a Sinnoh starter Pokemon.  For those who are bored and in a hunting mood, she’ll be lurking about.

This time she's actually trying to hunt Magikarp for herself, too.

The event-only avatars that appeared during the Summer and Halloween events are also available for the duration of the event (The swimmers, Ghost, Mummy, Caterpie and Magikarp) as well as the move tutors that were around during each event.

This will run for 2 weeks, or until the winter event is ready to be released (with a day off for event transitioning).  Thank you to all who were supportive of this, it means a lot to all of us!
