Gastly is a Ghost/Poison-type Pokémon that evolves into Haunter at Lv. 25, which evolves into Gengar via trade.


Gastly has no true form, due to its body being 95% poisonous gas. However, it consistently appears as a black, spherical Pokémon surrounded by a purple haze. It has a wide, pink mouth with two visible fangs. Though its eyes seem to extend past its round body, visible eyelids surround them.

Gastly has a sweet smell to it.


Gastly have been seen able to live beyond 300 years.


Gastly can be found living in old, dilapidated buildings, caves and cemetaries. They wander away from these places during the night.


Gastly has a playful personality, often frightening and playing pranks on people for fun. However, it has shown a willingness to preserve or pass on the memories of departed humans.


The toxic gas surrounding Gastly can induce fainting and suffocation, and is capable of enshrouding an Indian elephant within two seconds.

Gastly can surround an object with its gas to pick it up.

Gastly can create create illusions and phasing through solid objects.


Because it is mostly gas, Gastly will dwindle away when exposed to strong winds.
