Just a thread for my fave type of Pocket monster, and also the smallest and most neglected, considering the Youkai were a huge influence on Pokemon, its a shame that this is the smallest grouping, and in a lot of games, you dont meet ghost types untill quite a while into the game.

So this is a thread for dicussion on all ghost types, ghost Fakemon, and fanart.

Here is one of my fave pokes, and the Literal Ghost type, Yamask. It also has my favourite name of any ghost type (Yama - Hindu Lord of Death + Mask). Its also Influenced by an Egyptian Ba, which fits nicely with its awesome Evolution.


This was the one that got me into Pokemon

I just today found out that Snorunt evolves into a ghost type.
Meaning that it dies when it evolves.

Here's something that blowed my mind.


Gengar is the doppleganger pokemon. It also does stuff on the night of the full moon.

Which other pokemon does stuff on the full moon? Clefairy.

Supposedly, all who stare into the hole in Shedinja's back will have their soul sucked in.

And what does it look like when you use one in battle?

I've gotta say, my favorite all time Ghost-type pokemon has got to be Golurk.
Only because it makes me think of the animated 'Atlantis' movie, but whatever.
I'm still waiting on a Ghost/Fighting and a Ghost/Grass type.
I made a fakemon evolution of Mawile once... Mawraith, and it was a Ghost/Steel with Levitate as an ability. I've still got a picture of it somewhere on my hard drive, if you'd like to see my schlock.

Hex cannot be destroyed, only converted into hex. Blasphemer.
And from the rib of 0169, 01DE was created as his helper, but she did surpass him, and she became his flesh and his bones, and Tangela saw that it was good.

Oh, and:

Thats not a bad idea for the new game, and it would be cool if your oh so cute pink fluffball suddenly turned into a vicious gremlin :)

Thats better.

I would love to see a ghost steel, and your ghost/steel, Hug-a-slug, especially if its half as badass as this one -


The Ghosts of prisoners....awesome!
The description is as disturbing as the one for Yamask, which makes it one of my fave fakemons. Gamefreak, take note!

"Ghost" could just mean that it has contact with the spirit world, or has mystical ability, as opposed to actually dying.



Something like this should happen in Pokemon, in Digimon monsters can die if they evolve, and its pretty cool



Into this Abomination :D



One of the greatest pieces of advice ever -

You don't mess with a demented pink rat that can suddenly erupt into a giant, barfing tumor

"Ghost" may also be a simplistic way of referring to something with an intangible nature.

Party pooper.
Probably shouldnt've thrown away my old pillow. Then again, if my soul was all flat and un-fluffy and covered with nasty stains, I don't think it would be worth keeping around anyway.

I was contributing to the Jaybird's post regarding the terminology of the "ghost" type in the pokemon games. Not to mention, dead organisms aren't known for eating, sleeping, aging, producing excretions or bearing offspring.
