Our thoughts on this CD

Shadow Punch is a subpar move for Gengar, as Gengar already has access to an assortment of great moves. In other words, you don’t have to play during this CD for the fear of missing out.

However, Mega Evolutions are coming to Pokémon GO later this year, and Gengar has a particularly cool Mega Evolution, especially in its shiny form:

We suggest you do spend some time to farm a solid collection of shiny Gastly, and hold on to them. We advise against evolving them excessively, as we still don’t know how Megas will work. We don’t expect it to cost Candy, but just in case it does, you want to have some spare Gastly candy to go around.

Participate, farm, don’t go overboard with evolving and you should be future proof.
