Gastly is featured as part of July’s Pokémon Go Community Day event, which is scheduled for Sunday, July 19 from 11 AM to 5 PM.
Gastly was the runner-up in May’s fan poll. According to Niantic, Gastly will appear more frequently in the wild, and trainers will have a chance to catch a Shiny Gastly.
There will also be a special July Community Day Box available for purchase. It features 30 Ultra Balls, an Elite Fast TM, two Incense, and two Super Incubators.
Here are some more details from the official Pokémon Go blog:
- Evolve Haunter (the evolved form of Gastly) during the event or up to two hours afterward to get a Gengar that knows Shadow Punch.
- Take a few snapshots during Community Day for a surprise!
- For $1, you’ll be able to access the Community Day–exclusive Special Research story: The Great Gastly. Follow Professor Willow as he investigates some spooky happenings in his mobile lab!
- Eggs will require 1/4 Hatch Distance when placed in Incubators during the event period. Please note that this bonus will not stack with other active Hatch Distance bonuses.
- Incense activated during the event will last for three hours.
