This announcement states that a few Pokemon (Gastly, Drowzee, Zubat, and their evolutions) will have a hugely boosted spawn rate this week.

However, when I was out last night and today in two different locations, I saw only two Zubat, but a large number of Meowth, Cubone, and even Marowak. There must be other Pokemon that have been boosted but are not on the above list. If so, is that recorded somewhere? I'm in the southeast US if region ends up playing a factor.

Based on this post, it looks like aside from the Gastly, Drowzee, and Zubat, the Meowth and Cubone lines also have a bumped spawn rate during this event.

Thus, the complete list of Pokemon with increased spawns is the following:

  • 041: Zubat
  • 042: Golbat
  • 052: Meowth
  • 092: Gastly
  • 093: Haunter
  • 094: Gengar
  • 096: Drowzee
  • 097: Hypno
  • 104: Cubone
  • 105: Marowak

Here is another source that supports the increased spawn rate of Meowth and the Cubone line.

Note: While Meowth has increased spawns during this event, apparently, Persian does not.

    In a matter of hours, I caught enough Drowzees for a Hypno and my brother caught enough Ghastlys for 2 Gengars. I can say the spawn rate has increase tremendously Oct 26, 2016 at 15:58
  • Very odd, wonder why Niantic didn't mention the two extra lines

  • @Venomous I've only been downtown for Pokehunts once, but Zubats are spawning everywhere where I work, which is very close to downtown FW Oct 26, 2016 at 16:02
  • @Wondercricket ah, I've been a couple times, and since it was before Nearby was Sightings, my entire list was just Zubat

    @Batophobia I've been to one lure today, and it had Drowzee, Hypno, Gastly, and Haunter Pokemon only
