Catch Gastly and Get a Gengar That Knows Shadow Punch during Pokémon GO’s July Community Day

Stay on the lookout for the Ghost-type Gastly, and take advantage of awesome bonuses.

The upcoming Pokémon GO Community Day is your big chance to get Gastly. On Sunday, July 19, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in your local time zone, this Gas Pokémon will appear more frequently in the wild, and there'll be a better chance those you encounter will be Shiny. Plus, if you evolve a Haunter (the evolved form of Gastly) into Gengar during the event—or up to two hours afterward—that Gengar will know Shadow Punch, an attack it can't normally learn.

Additional bonuses will be in effect, too, such as Incense activated during the event lasting for three hours.

To get in the spirit of this Community Day, check out a collection of Pokémon the Series episodes featuring Gastly starting Friday, July 17, on watch.pokemon.com and the Pokémon TV mobile app.

Good luck searching for Gastly on Community Day, Trainers!
