Description: Although Gastly has no true form, it most often appears as a floating black orb surrounded by purple gas. Its massive eyes extend beyond its face, and it has a large mouth that is often grinning or even laughing. The gas surrounding it is quite toxic, despite its pleasant smell, and can cause fainting or suffocation. Gastly can also engulf virtually any enemy in these fumes, regadless of the opponent's size. It is tied with Haunter, Flabébé, Cosmog, and Kartana for lightest Pokémon weighing a mere 0.2 lbs.

These little Ghost Pokémon are often playful, and love to play pranks. However, they also have a duty to preserve the memories of the deceased which they pass on to the living. Gastly can make their bodies entirely intangible, allowing them to slip through solid objects. Their gaseous forms can also create illusions and take on any other shape. Because the wind can blow away some of their gas, Gastly will huddle together during storms. In Pokémon Go, Gastly are most easily found in foggy weather, especially before the sun comes up, but during the weeks surrounding Halloween, they can be found everywhere.
