The '''Ghost World''' or '''spirit world''' (Japanese: '''れいかい''' ''Spirit World''), also referred to as the '''world of spirits''', is a plane of existence depicted in the anime and mentioned in the games. It is known to be home to {{type|Ghost}} Pokémon—most notably {{p|Dusknoir}}—as well as actual ghosts of people and Pokémon. It is also known to emit electrical or radio waves.
All of {{p|Dusknoir}}'s [[Pokédex]] entries highlight its connection to the Ghost World. Its Diamond and Pearl Pokédex entry mentions that the antenna on its head captures radio waves from the "world of spirits" that command it to take people there. Its Platinum, Black and White Pokédex entry mentions that it takes lost spirits into its body and "guides them home", presumably referring to the Ghost World. Its HeartGold and SoulSilver Pokédex entry mentions that it travels to "worlds unknown" and that it takes lost spirits with it, which is also presumed to be a reference to the Ghost World.
In addition to these, the Japanese name of the {{DL|Evolution-inducing held item|[[Reaper Cloth}}]] (れいかいのぬの ''Spirit World Cloth'') indicates that it comes from the Ghost World.

[[File:Spirit world DP090.png|thumb|250px|The portal to the spirit world at the Summit Ruins]]
The spirit world debuted in ''[[DP090|Ghoul Daze!]]''. The staff of the [[Pokémon Summer Academy]] were renovating the [[Summit Ruins]] so that the students could collect medals from there as part of a competition they had set up. However, butthey accidentally damaged a stone structure in the process, which subsequently created a cave that was actually a portal to the spirit world. Doing so allowed a [[ghost girl]] to escape, who was followed by a Dusknoir who was trying to protect people from the ghost girl and send the ghost back to the spirit world. The girl first tried to lure [[Conway]] off a cliff, then tried to lure {{Ash}} and [[Angie]] into the portal to the spirit world. When this failed, she was able to cause the spirit world portal to forcefully suck Ash and Angie into it. However, she was stopped by Dusknoir, who then destroyed the cave, sealing the entrance to the spirit world and trapping the ghost girl there. Also in this episode, Dusknoir's Pokédex entry mentions that it receives electrical waves from the spirit world with its antenna and it is said to take people to the spirit world as well.
The Ghost World, as it is now referred, then appeared in ''[[BW026|Scare at the Litwick Mansion!]]''. In this episode, several wild {{p|Litwick}} and a {{p|Lampent}} opened a portal to the spirit world in the [[Litwick Mansion]]. As described in their Pokédex entries, Litwick and Lampent will pretend to be helping people by illuminating dark areas, but are actually leading them to the Ghost World while sucking their life energy.
The portal appeared when the Litwick and Lampent's attacks hit the wall, blowing part of it away. LaterSlowly, all the walls, as well as the ceiling, disappeared, so it can be thought that Ash and {{Ashfr|co.friends}}, along with Team Rocket, were actually ''in'' the Ghost World. The walls and ceiling reappeared once the Pokémon were defeated and were sent back into the Ghost World.
