Gastly Community Day Event Evolutions

Pokémon #92, #93 and #94 i.e, Gastly, Haunter and Gengar are Ghost/Poison type Pokémon that are exclusive to the Kanto region. Players will see increased Gastly spawn rate in the wild, therefore gather up a bunch of Pokéballs before tomorrow.

In this event, a few perks will be unlocked for players worldwide. Firstly, the hatching distance for eggs will be reduced by 75% or become one fourth.

Moreover, a new Gastly Community Day exclusive move will be unlocked. This move is called Shadow Punch and it can only be learned by your Pokémon via tha means of this event. To unlock this, you will have to evolve any Haunter into a Gengar.

There are two ways to approach this. Either you can feed your Haunter enough candies to trigger the evolution, but it can be very tedious. Or you can try the trade evolution method. In simpler words, if you receive an eligible Pokémon in a trade, it’s candy requirements for evolution will be removed entirely. There you can practically evolve it for free. Haunter is eligible to evolve into Gengar this way.
