{{type|Ghost}}-[[Types|type]] [[Pokémon (species)|Pokémon]] tend to be weak in terms of attack, but they also tend to specialize in speed and special defense. Most ghost types are very hard to hit. They are strong against psychic pokemon.
+
The '''{{type|Ghost}} [[Types|type]]''' ('''ゴーストタイプ''' ''Gosuto taipu'' in Japanese) is one of the eighteen [[Pokémon Types|Pokémon elemental types]].
   
Ghost Pokémon deal with the supernatural, specifically the realm of the dead. In the [[Pokémon Red and Blue|Red, Blue]] and [[Pokémon Yellow|Yellow]] versions of Pokémon, all wild Ghost Pokémon required a special item to see them clearly.
+
It is a type that's characterized for having few amounts of Pokémon and moves, also because its Pokémon tend to have low HP. In battles, this type is useful because it's the only type that has two immunities, {{type|Normal}} and {{type|Fighting}}, and its common to have moves of those two types. From [[Generation VI]] onwards, they are also immune to moves and abilities that prevent the Pokémon from escaping, like [[Block]] and [[Shadow Tag]].
   
Excluding [[Arceus]] while holding a [[Spooky Plate]], the only legendary Ghost Pokémon is [[Giratina]].
+
The Pokémon of this type are usually related to fear, dark and the afterlife. They usually live in abandoned houses, cemeteries, funeral places and inhabited and dark places. Also Ghost-type Pokémon tend to be extremely naughty, pranking on humans just to see their faces and reactions. A curious thing is that if the human is more scared, more power the Pokémon it will have to prank with it.

Type Ghost

The Ghost type (ゴーストタイプ Gosuto taipu in Japanese) is one of the eighteen Pokémon elemental types.

It is a type that's characterized for having few amounts of Pokémon and moves, also because its Pokémon tend to have low HP. In battles, this type is useful because it's the only type that has two immunities, Normal and Fighting, and its common to have moves of those two types. From Generation VI onwards, they are also immune to moves and abilities that prevent the Pokémon from escaping, like Block and Shadow Tag.

The Pokémon of this type are usually related to fear, dark and the afterlife. They usually live in abandoned houses, cemeteries, funeral places and inhabited and dark places. Also Ghost-type Pokémon tend to be extremely naughty, pranking on humans just to see their faces and reactions. A curious thing is that if the human is more scared, more power the Pokémon it will have to prank with it.

Famous Ghost-type Pokémon Trainers include Agatha, third member of the Kanto Elite Four; Morty, Gym Leader of Johto; Phoebe, second member of the Hoenn Elite Four; Fantina, Gym Leader in the Sinnoh region; and Shauntal, a member of the Unova Elite Four.

  • They're weak against the Dark type because dark represents terror and evil, and they say that evil spirtis (like Spiritomb) are punished.
  • They're immune against the Fighting and Normal types because spirits are incorporeal beings, thus can't be hit normally. This is also the reason why the Normal type is immune to them, because a mortal and a ghost can't hurt each other. Interestingly, the Fighting type is not immune to them.
  • They resist the Poison type because you can't poison someone who's already dead.
  • Before Generation VI, a Ghost and Dark type didn't have any weakness and was immune to the types Psychic, Normal and Fighting. However, from Generation VI onwards, they're weak only against the Fairy type.

TriviaEdit
