Pokemon Go: Halloween, another death in Japan, and dailies

Avec les hommes et le Pokey.

Kotaku has reported another death associated with Pokemon Go. Citing an article in Japanese-language Livedoor, the site says that a truck driver in Aichi Prefecture was arrested for accidentally hitting and killing a nine-year-old child. Police say the driver was playing — you guessed it — Pokemon Go while driving.

In happier news, dataminers say they’ve discovered code for three different types of daily quests buried inside the Pokemon Go app.

And in significantly happier news, Halloween has arrived in the game, and it’s all about candy. More candy. Way too much candy, plus extra spooky catchables.

“Starting October 26 and lasting through November 1, you can receive way more Candies than usual. Every Pokémon you catch will award six Candies—twice the normal amount. The Professor will give you two Candies instead of one for every Pokémon you transfer to him. And your Buddy Pokémon will award Candy four times faster than they usually do. Plus, you’ll get twice the Candy you’d normally get when you hatch Eggs. Walk and catch all the Pokémon you can to get your fill of Candy during this special event!”
