Halloween sweets are obtainable through trick-or-treating a user, rumbling, or through Interacting. The Halloween Sweets can be used to exchange them for items or Pokemon in the Halloween Store.
One of the possible ways to obtain Halloween Sweets is by Trick-or-treating a user. Similarly to the previous Halloween Event, there was a the Trick-or-Treat function added onto everyone's Userprofile. By trick-or-treating a user, you will obtain some Halloween Sweets. Each user can only be Trick-or-treated once a day.
Users had five options to get candies from Trick-or-Treating others with two new additions from last year (bolded):
Little Kids (Trick or treat!)
Depending on what the user chose as what scared them the most, you got more candy based on what you dressed up as.
The higher your Skill Level is, the more users you can trick-or-treat daily and the more sweets you will get by trick-or-treating them.
Another way to increase the amount of Halloween Sweets you will get is by purchasing the "Scary Glasses" item in the Halloween Store.
Another possible method to obtain Halloween sweets was through Interacting. The amount of Halloween sweets you can get through interacting can be increased by purchasing the "Large Candy Bag" from the Halloween Store.
Getting some Halloween sweets when retrieving a Pokemon.
The last method to obtain Halloween Sweets is through Rumbling
. Users are able to get a small amount of Halloween Sweets from rumbling when they retrieve their Pokemon. The amount of sweets obtained through rumbling can be increased when purchasing the
"Explorer Halloween Upgrade" item from the Halloween Store.
Trick or Treat Skills
The Trick or Treat Skills level
The Trick-or-Treat level determines how much Halloween Candy you can obtain when Trick-or-Treating a user. The level can be increased by interacting.
