The first-ever Gengar Day has been announced for Pokémon GO. The official announcement from The Pokémon Company is as follows:
Take on Gengar in a Special Raid Challenge! Nab free Raid Passes and hunt for a Shiny Pokémon in Raid Battles for three hours on November 3.
Gengar is preparing to haunt a new Special Raid Challenge! For just three hours on November 3, the Shadow Pokémon will be appearing in Pokémon GO raids. You may even be among the first Trainers to encounter a Shiny Gengar!
Check below to find out when the event hours fall in your region of the world:
- The Americas: November 3, 2018, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. PDT
- The Asia-Pacific region: November 3, 2018, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. JST
- Europe, the Middle East, and Africa: November 3, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. UTC
When you spin Photo Discs at Gyms during the event, you’ll be able to receive up to five free Raid Passes. Plus, all Gengar that are caught during those hours will know the Psychic-type attack Psychic. Fighting-type opponents won’t stand a chance against a Gengar with telekinetic power!
Don’t miss this chance to catch rare variants of Gengar!
