====The Electric Tale of Pikachu====
  +
In The Electric Tale of Pikachu, Ash encounters a giant Haunter called the Black Fog, notorious for using its Dream Eater attack to kill people and Pokémon by stealing their souls. Sabrina has a vendetta against this Haunter, as her Pokémon were attacked and killed by it when she was eleven, but she falls victim as well in her attempt to protect a team of people trying to hunt it down. With the combined effort of Ash and the team of hunters, the Black Fog managed to be weakened enough for capture, only for it to promptly use Selfdestruct, killing itself right before Ash's Ultra Ball reaches it.
  +
  +
====Adventures====
  +
A boy that Blue met near the abandoned Power Plant had a Haunter in his team before it was stolen, with which he later fights Agatha's Gengar to free Blue from a coffin created by a Dream Eater attack. Agatha also had armies of Haunter that she used in her attack on Kanto.
  +
  +
Eusine was later seen with a Haunter in ''The Last Battle VI''. It proved useful in knocking out the Masked Man's Gastly after the latter wounded Suicune with its Curse.
  +
  +
Another Haunter appeared in ''The Last Battle XIII'' as one of the Pokémon sent to help the fight in Ilex Forest.
  +
  +
====Pocket Monsters====
  +
Haunter debuted in ''Get Rid Of The Ghost Pokémon!!'' where it was under the ownership of Blue. It evolved into Gengar in the same part.
  +
  +
A Haunter appeared in ''Which One is the Real Clefairy!?'' where it was giving the citizens a tour around the area along with Clefairy.
  +
  +
Giovanni was revealed to have a Haunter when it attempted to battle a Squirtle of his.
  +
  +
====The Golden Boys====
  +
Black owns a Haunter which evolved from a Gastly.
  +
  +
Eusine also has a Haunter in the manga.

Haunter (Japanese: ゴースト Goosuto) is a Ghost/Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

This Pokémon takes the shape of a sinister looking, angular floating face with fangs, and it has disembodied, clawed hands. When approached by people, it has a habit of reverting to a spherical form that obscures its eyes, mouth, and hands. Haunter also likes to transform into solid things just to scare people. If you are sleeping or unconscious, Haunter can grab you and turn you into a ghost. But will return you into your body shortly afterwards. It can sap the life-force from a target by licking it. If it chooses to do so the victim will not stop shaking until it dies. Although it can lick other organisms without killing them.

Natural abilitiesEdit

Haunter can have the ability Levitate, which cause all Ground-type moves to miss. It licks with its gaseous tongue, so getting close is dangerous. Because of its ability to slip through solid walls, it is thought to be from another realm. It enjoys scaring people and revealing horrible nightmares of their worst fears to them while taking pleasure in it. It is also thought to steal the souls of those who envy, so it is highly recommended that you keep your distance.

EvolutionEdit

Haunter is the evolved form of Gastly, evolving at level 25. Haunter evolves into Gengar by trade, Gengar can then Mega Evolve into Mega Gengar using Gengarite. Alternatively, Haunter has an anime/manga exclusive evolution called Black Fog.

AnimeEdit

Pokemon Haunter Tower

Haunter haunting Ash

Ash Ketchum convinced a Haunter to follow him in order to defeat Sabrina. In his second battle, Haunter caused Sabrina to laugh with its constant pranks. After this, Sabrina gave Ash the Marsh Badge, and Haunter was given to Sabrina.

MangaEdit

The Electric Tale of PikachuEdit

In The Electric Tale of Pikachu, Ash encounters a giant Haunter called the Black Fog, notorious for using its Dream Eater attack to kill people and Pokémon by stealing their souls. Sabrina has a vendetta against this Haunter, as her Pokémon were attacked and killed by it when she was eleven, but she falls victim as well in her attempt to protect a team of people trying to hunt it down. With the combined effort of Ash and the team of hunters, the Black Fog managed to be weakened enough for capture, only for it to promptly use Selfdestruct, killing itself right before Ash's Ultra Ball reaches it.

AdventuresEdit

A boy that Blue met near the abandoned Power Plant had a Haunter in his team before it was stolen, with which he later fights Agatha's Gengar to free Blue from a coffin created by a Dream Eater attack. Agatha also had armies of Haunter that she used in her attack on Kanto.

Eusine was later seen with a Haunter in The Last Battle VI. It proved useful in knocking out the Masked Man's Gastly after the latter wounded Suicune with its Curse.

Another Haunter appeared in The Last Battle XIII as one of the Pokémon sent to help the fight in Ilex Forest.

Pocket MonstersEdit

Haunter debuted in Get Rid Of The Ghost Pokémon!! where it was under the ownership of Blue. It evolved into Gengar in the same part.

A Haunter appeared in Which One is the Real Clefairy!? where it was giving the citizens a tour around the area along with Clefairy.

Giovanni was revealed to have a Haunter when it attempted to battle a Squirtle of his.

The Golden BoysEdit

Black owns a Haunter which evolved from a Gastly.

Eusine also has a Haunter in the manga.
