A tweet from Pokemon Go’s official Twitter account leaves players wondering if Mass Outbreaks will be coming to the game this Halloween season.

It seems Niantic was eager to introduce some new content to Pokemon Go, such as the surprise Elite Raids reveal.

Though Elite Raids leaked ahead of the official reveal, details about the new raid type were scarce, with many trainers speculating that the event could work in a similar way to massive outbreaks in other Pokemon titles.

Now, the developer has teased another event ahead of the 2022 Halloween event, with players once again theorizing that massive outbreaks could be coming to Pokemon Go in one form or another.

The tease came from the official Pokemon Go Twitter account, which posted a 14-second video with the caption, “Something weird is happening this Halloween season. Can you figure out what’s going on? open and your buddy close…”

The video shows a trainer recording himself as they walk through a ghostly forest in the middle of the night, before stumbling upon a single Magikarp floundering in a river. However, as soon as they turn around, they are greeted with a horde of Magikarp splashing around.

Thanks to the video capture overlay used on the video, it looks like Niantic is leaving a hint for perceptive trainers.

In the lower right corner of the screen is the text ‘FILE_001025’. Since this is a plague for new content coming “this Halloween season”, the file number could correlate with October 25 or 10/25.

Trainers were quick to link up the Magikarp horde as a plague for mass outbreaks, like Twitter user AndrewTaco72.

Other players speculated that the mention of a buddy Pokemon could also correlate with this event. “Function for buddy pokemon to find breakout locations?” asked Twitter user plsaPichuEared.

Of course, nothing has been confirmed outright by Niantic at the time of writing, but this Magikarp teaser is sure to leave fans wondering what event Pokemon Go has in store for trainers for Halloween 2022.
