It was announced today that the Ghost and Poison-type Gastly will be featured in the Pokemon GO Community Day for the month of July.
On Sunday, July 19 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. local time, Gastly will begin to appear more frequently in the wild. If you are particularly lucky, there is also a chance of finding and catching a shiny Gastly.
If you evolve a Haunter, which is the evolved form of Gastly, during the event or up to two hours afterward, the Pokemon will learn the move Shadow Punch when it turns into Gengar.
Taking a photograph of a Pokemon during the Community Day hours will make a Gastly photobomb the picture, which can make for creative shots.
Like most Community Days, a special one-time purchase box will be available in the shop. It will contain 30 Ultra Balls, an Elite Fast TM, two Incense, and two Super Incubators.
For $1, you can access a Special Research story that is exclusive to this month’s Community Day. It is called The Great Gastly, and the story follows Professor Willow as he investigates something mysterious happening in the lab.
But that’s not all: there are a few other bonuses to look forward to during the July Community Day as well. Eggs will only require 1/4 distance to hatch, and incense activated during the event will last for three hours.
Gastly was the runner-up of the recent community poll; Weedle was the first place winner and received its own Community Day last month.
While you wait for the July Community Day to catch a bunch of Gastly, check out some other recent news about Pokemon GO, such as Kyurem coming to Raid Battles and the latest spotlight bonuses.
