Niantic has just announced a brand new type of event coming to Pokémon Go: a Catch Mastery. On October 25, 2020, from 8 AM to 10 PM local time, Trainers will be challenged to catch as many Ghost type Pokémon as possible, especially the Ghost Balloon Pokémon, Drifloon. Drifloon will be spawning at an increased rate and will also have its Shiny form released and boosted. The Catch Mastery: Ghost Event will also feature a special Timed Research line, as well as event exclusive Field Research Tasks which will grant encounters with Ghost type Pokémon, as well as the first chance ever to collect Mega Gengar Energy, the rare resource necessary to Mega Evolve Gengar.
Additionally, Trainers will earn bonus XP for making Nice, Great, Excellent, and Curveball Throws during the Catch Mastery.
