Despite what you think, Pokémon Go is still popular as hell. During the game’s five-day Halloween event — in which chances of encountering spooky Pokémon were increased — players managed to catch 1.3 Ghost types, according to GamesRadar.

Developer Niantic said Gastly was the most caught Pokémon during the event, followed by Cubone and Drowzee.

In fact, Gastly and its evolved forms, Haunter and Gengar, are the only ghost types in Pokémon Go. With that in mind, it’s a pretty cool feat.
