Spiritomb (Japanese: ミカルゲ Mikaruge) is a Ghost/Dark-type Pokémon. It is a boss in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2.

Appearance

Spiritomb are somewhat ghost-like in appearance. 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.

To obtain

Start by placing the Odd Keystone into the stone tower on Route 209, it then turns into the Hallowed Tower. Afterwards, go underground and greet 32 people. Finally, touch the Hallowed Tower by pressing A to trigger a battle.

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 pokedex number to be "108" referring to the 108 spirits. It is one of 5 Pokémon that have no weakness, due to its typing. Sableye, due to its typing, Tynamo and its evolutions, due to its ability, are the other 4.
