Type Ghost

Ghost-type 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 Pokémon.

Ghost Pokémon deal with the supernatural, specifically the realm of the dead. In the Red, Blue and Yellow versions of Pokémon, all wild Ghost Pokémon required a special item to see them clearly.

Excluding Arceus while holding a Spooky Plate, the only legendary Ghost Pokémon is Giratina.
