How Many Black Cats Have Crossed Your Path… #IngressHalloween2021
When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam, may XM be yours this Halloween. Our Researchers have detected a potential XM fluctuation starting Thursday, 21 October, 16:00 UTC to Monday, 1 November, 16:00 UTC.
Theory has it that this fluctuation will cause the Ingress Scanner to display ambient XM in a different color, and to exhibit the following unnatural behaviors:
- AP for destroying Resonators, upgrading Resonators, destroying Mods and recharging increased to 125
- AP for destroying Links increased to 313
- AP for destroying Fields increased to 1,250
- Each Agent able to deploy up to 4 Mods per Portal
While this fluctuation appears to be caused by an annual celebration of immense cultural significance, our Researchers have been logging an unusually high number of déjà vu occurrences. A déjà vu is usually a glitch in the Scanner—it happens when they change something. We need your help in furthering our investigation.
To assist Agents participating in this Investigation, the following kits will be available in the Store for the duration of this fluctuation:
- 120 L2 Resonators (1000 CMU)
- limited-time Halloween 2021 Medal (2500 CMU)
- limited-time Halloween 2020 Medal (2500 CMU)
As always, please remember to be aware of your surroundings. We encourage players to follow local health and safety guidelines when playing Ingress (such as wearing masks and maintaining at least six feet/two meters of distance from other people).

cat badge :D
Very nice medal! 😍😍
Now, any news on fixing the ongoing lag we are suffering every day while trying to play ingress since months?
Deploying resonators, mods, recharging portals, everything is a pain and it takes double time to do it.
Nice that people can get the 2020 medal if they want. Liking the extra AP & 4 mods too.
That medal can’t be real….lol
Get ready for Standard Time madness in Europe 🕔
Ooo cat badge!
Thank you so much for making the 2020 badge available again for the people that missed it <3
Haha, well played. This should be the first reply to every frickin' post made by a Niantic employee. That'll teach 'em.
Those that buy the 2020 Halloween badge and the 2021 Halloween badge this year will be able to have them showing next to one another.
That’s how I would like to have my Halloween badges on my profile but bought the 2020 badge last year, is that going to be possible to re-arrange medals on profiles at some point?
Another boring event without a plot? And by the way, do you remember the times when you had to earn a medal with your own labor but not buy ????
The 4 mods is nice. But for those of us that are level 16, AP is useless.

Only medal in store or we can get 1 medal for free on the event?
it will look fine :)
You buy it in store or earn for free?
all of us will be able to buy it from thursday
And get rid of that boring plot stuff.
You know what would be cooler? Being able to earn the medal through the event instead of just having to buy it.
Deja Vu is becoming an unusual phenomenon? Or, and, is our xm becoming something more?

😂😂😂 damn you, Halloween, for all the glitches & lags in the game lately! I'm certain David S. Pumpkins played a part in this evil plot! #dejavu #Halloweenglitch #pumpkinlag
super cool event!!! Event : "you can buy something from the store"
2 cats? What is the other design of the medal?
Cool... A limited time badge that isn't limited to the time it was released. 🤔
Wow. You complaining as usual. I'm so shocked.
This is the 2020 medal.
I was expecting a bit more from the AP bonuses (I'm about 2,5M to get level 16), maybe for the anniversary event?
But hey, a cat medal is a cat medal.
Well, I see there will be 2020 Halloween medal available and here comes the question. So why don't I make character medals available? Why are some medals made available and others not? Event Medal I understand not to be sold, now Medal of forgiveness, why are they not available? example: P.A Chapeau, Misty Hannah, NL-1331, Stein Lightning. these are some of the examples of medals that could be sold as well. As some new players would like to acquire some of these medals. It would be interesting to think about this possibility.
I'm having none of the issues reported by MatiasM20.
I run on a Samsung Note20. Perhaps update your phone's firmware? Upgrade your phone even? idk.
Usually a good time to recurse and boost yourself up to level 8+ again quickly.
