Back in July, a special event was held in Japan known as the Special Weekend where various bonuses were available through a ticketed means including spawns of certain Pokémon and bonuses to the game. One of these events got postponed due to issues with the ticketing and has finally been rescheduled to be on Saturday February 23rd from 10:00 to 20:00 JST. This event has increased spawns of Charmander and the Unown letters S & B and includes double experience. To qualify, you need a ticket from the SoftBank website, which are then given by lottery if not a SoftBank or Yahoo Mobile customer and when you have a valid ticket you can spin any sponsored PokéStop for the event to begin
