Thoughts on the event

Naturally players in Latin America and the Caribbean will benefit more from this event because of the additional boosts they have, but its nice the rest of the world gets to join in the event

The 2x Stardust is really nice especially for Sableye which has an increased base stardust catch amount. Catching all Sableye you see will give a significant amount of stardust per catch

Incense and Lures lasting 90 minutes is also useful to maximise how many Pokemon you can catch per use

Having 2x stardust boost will also combine with the first November spotlight hour which effectively doubles up as a 2 boost spotlight (as Cacnea has 2x catch candy as its boost)
