Niantic Confirms 1.3 Billion Ghost Type Pokemon Were Captured Halloween Event

During the five-day span for Pokemon GO‘s Halloween event, trainers were more than ecstatic for all candy bonus drops. In fact, more than 1.3 billion trainers. With the game incentivizing players not only to play the game, but go hunt as well, it brought a huge resurgence to actually evolving Ghost-type Pokemon.

According to Niantic CEO John Hanke, Gastly was the most caught Pokemon, followed by Cubone and Drowzee. Don’t stop till’ you get enough, trainers!
