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

It evolves from Gastly starting at level 25 and evolves into Gengar when traded.

Biology

Haunter is a purple Pokémon with a gaseous body. It has a round head with a pair of disembodied hands. Each hand has three pointed fingers. Its head is flanked by three large, spiked protrusions on either side, and its eyes are large and triangular with small pupils. The gases composing its head curve down to form several pointed teeth framing a pink mouth and a long tongue. Its body tapers into a jagged tail.

Haunter hides in very dark places, where it plots to take the life of the next living thing that comes near it. It silently stalks its victim and steals its life force with a lick from its gaseous tongue, which inflicts convulsions that persists until the victim dies. It has the ability to float through solid walls. Despite its predatory nature, it has been known to entertain and prank people in the anime. Additionally, it has even been shown to feel intense loyalty to a deceased Trainer. Haunter lives in dark, abandoned caves.

Trivia

  • In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Haunter's prototype name was "Spectre".
  • At 0.2 lbs. (0.1 kg), Haunter is tied with GastlyFlabébéCosmog and Kartana as the lightest Pokémon.
  • Haunter has a slightly different cry starting in Generation III.
  • No other Pokémon have the same type combination as Haunter and its evolutionary relatives.
    • Due to its unique type combination, Haunter and its evolutionary relatives are the only Poison-type Pokémon that are weak against Dark-type moves.

Origin

Haunter is possibly based on the dila, a spirit that passes through walls then licks certain humans to death according to Filipino mythology. It also appears to be based on a generic sort of cartoonish ghost.

Name origin

Haunter is derived from haunt, as ghosts are known to do. It could also be a corruption of "hunter".

Ghost is literally ghost.
