Spiritomb (Japanese: ミカルゲ Mikaruge) is a Ghost/Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

Biology

Physiology

Spiritomb are somewhat ghost-like in appearance. It was formed by 108 spirits. The main body of a Spiritomb appears like a purple, swirling vortex with green eyes and a black spiral for a pupil in its left eye. Around its face are green orbs that encircle it. Its "body" is connected to a stone base, with a small fissure in it supposing it was released when the seal was broken half way but still bound to the stone. Spiritomb's mouth is green like its eyes. The "face" of the Odd Keystone is not visible when Spiritomb is present. The shiny variant of Spiritomb has a blue vortex, and purple dots, eyes, and mouth.

Special Abilities

All Spiritomb have the ability Pressure, which consumes the enemy's PP by 2 instead of one. It is said that Spiritomb are composed of 108 spirits, but could as well be the reason for its Pokédex number to be "108" referring to the 108 spirits. It is one of 5 Pokémon that have no weakness, due to its typing (until Generation VI with the introduction of Fairy-type Pokémon).

Evolution

Spiritomb does not evolve.
