Gastly (Japaneseゴース Ghos) is a dual-type Ghost/Poison Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves into Haunter starting at level 25, which evolves into Gengar when traded.

Biology

 
Gastly's "hands"

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. The toxic gas surrounding the main body can induce fainting and suffocation, and is capable of enshrouding an Indian elephant within two seconds. Because it is mostly gas, Gastly will dwindle away when exposed to strong winds.

The anime suggests that 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. It has further been shown changing form and composing illusions, and it is capable of phasing through solid objects and forming tangible hands out of its gasses. The anime has shown Gastly living in old, dilapidated buildings, but it can also be found in caves

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

Gastly appears in the 3DS version as an enemy in Smash Run mode, as well as a trophy. It is immune to melee attacks.

Trophy information

NAThis Ghost/Poison-type Pokémon is made up of several toxic gases—touching it would be really unpleasant. Instead, try to take it out with projectiles. It's not the fastest enemy in Smash Run, but occasionally it may try to chase down a fighter, so be careful around this gaseous foe.

PALIn Smash Run, these Ghost- and Poison-type Pokémon tend to move slowly, and then, without warning, chase after you at high speed. You'll get hurt if they so much as come into contact with you, so be on your guard. As ghosts, they're immune to direct attacks. The only way to defeat them is to hit them with projectiles or items.

Trivia

 

  • In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Gastly's prototype name was "Spirit".
  • No other Pokémon have the same type combination as Gastly and its evolutions.
    • Due to its unique type combination, Gastly and its evolutionary relatives are the only Poison-type Pokémon that are weak against Dark-type moves.
  • At 0.2 lbs (0.1 kg), Gastly is tied with HaunterFlabébéCosmog, and Kartana as the lightest Pokémon.
  • Despite all of them being Poison-type, Gastly together with its evolutionary family are not able to learn Poison-type moves by leveling up.
  • Gastly is tied with Venipede for the lowest HP of all Poison-type Pokémon.
  • Gastly and its evolution Haunter are the lightest of all Poison-type Pokémon and Ghost-type Pokémon.

Origin

Gastly seems to be based on general cartoonish ghosts and spirits, or maybe a will-o'-the-wisp. It may also have been based on the Japanese yōkai sōgen bi, the decapitated head of a monk whose head is doomed to wander the Earth, consumed by fire. Its Poison type is most likely a reference to poisonous or polluted gases.

Name origin

Gastly may be a combination of gas and ghastly (dreadfully frightening or horrible).

Ghos is a shortened form of ghost and may also incorporate gas into its name.
