Trivia

  • Misdreavus is the only Ghost type Pokémon to be revealed in Generation II.
  • Although its appearance seems feminine, a male Misdreavus can be found in the wild at a 50% rate.
  • Excluding evolutions, Misdreavus is one of four plain Ghost Pokémon, with the others being Shuppet, Duskull and Yamask.
  • Even though Misdreavus is the "Screech Pokémon", it cannot learn Screech by leveling up.
  • Misdreavus appears in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, where she runs a Photo Studio in the Cove Town.
  • Misdreavus is the first pure Ghost-type Pokémon to be introduced.

Origin

Misdreavus is based off of the Nukekubi, a floating head that is similar in nature to a vampire. The Nukekubi is also known to let out terrifying screeches, a trait it shares with Misdreavus.

Etymology

Misdreavus' name is a combination of the words mischievous, dream and reave or reap.

Its Japanese name, Muuma, is literally the word nightmare. It also means "a demon of dreams". It could also be a corruption of the word murmur as in ghost murmurs.
