The Pokémon Company announced yesterday that a new smart speaker app is being developed for use with Google Home, Google Home Mini, and Alexa — it is called Pikachu Talk, which will allow users to chat with Pikachu.
Not much is known about the free application at this time, but it will be released in Japan later this year. Other regions will be able to talk to Pikachu next year.
Since October 1st, the trio of Legendary Pokémon from Johto have been appearing in specific regions of the world — with Raikou in the Asian-Pacific, Entei in the Americas, and Suicune in Europe and Africa.

In a recent interview with Eurogamer Portugal, Game Freak gave a little bit more information on the mini-game in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon known as Mantine Surf.
Players can accumulate points by playing Mantine Surf, and with them pay a Move Tutor to teach their Pokémon moves that could not be learned in Sun or Moon. The points may also be used to purchase items of some sort.
It is also stated that Mantine Surf may be played in different areas — such as areas that connect two islands.
From October 20th through November 2nd, Pokémon GO will be having a very special Halloween celebration!
Gather extra candy while walking with your Buddy Pokémon, earn double the rewards from capturing, hatching, and transferring, and dress up your avatar with festive attire. Some spooky Generation III Pokémon — such as Banette and Sableye — will also be appearing for the first time; and other species from the Hoenn region will begin to show themselves as early as December!
