==Trivia==
* Its {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s|Diamond}}, {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s|HeartGold, and SoulSilver}} Pokédex entries statesstate that it was formed from 108 spirits. Spiritomb's number in the [[List of Pokémon by Sinnoh Pokédex number|Sinnoh Pokédex]] is 108, its Defense and Special Defense base values are 108, and it weighs exactly 108.0&nbsp;kg. In {{pkmn|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}} it can be found at [[Sea Mauville]], which lies on {{rt|108|hoennHoenn}}. In [[Pokémon GO]], Spiritomb is encountered at the end of a research quest involving feeding 108 {{Berries}} to Pokémon and catching 108 Pokémon. All of this is based on the number of temptations a person must overcome to reach {{wp|Nirvana}} in {{wp|Buddhism}}.
* Prior to the introduction of the {{t|Fairy}} type in [[Generation VI]], Spiritomb was one of the only two {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} that had no weakness (without the aid of an Ability) along with {{p|Sableye}}. As this occurred without the aid of an [[Ability]], it was commonly hacked to have the ability {{a|Wonder Guard}}, making it immune to all direct damage. This hack is commonly referred to as [[Wondertomb]].
** Spiritomb and Sableye were commonly hacked to have the Ability {{a|Wonder Guard}}, as this made it immune to all direct damage due to having no weaknesses. This hack is commonly referred to as [[Wondertomb]].
 
===Origin===
Spiritomb is based on a Jibakurei, a spirit bound to a single place. It is also based on a {{wp|Buddhism|Buddhist}} tradition performed on {{wp|New Year's Eve}} in Japan. A bell is rung 108 times to chase away the 108 temptations in order to achieve {{wp|Nirvana (Buddhism)|Nirvana}}. The wisps of spirits surrounding its face also resemble a set of prayer beads, a possible reference to {{wp|Japa}}. It may also be based on a {{wp|crystal ball}}.
 
Spiritomb may also be based on ''{{wp|Water Margin}}'', one of China'sthe {{wp|Four GreatClassic ClassicalChinese Novels}}, which is also very well known in Japan. In the first chapter of the novel, a foolish army marshal orders the removal of a stone monument which had been guarded by monks for generations. Doing so releases the spirits of 108 demons sealed therein. These 108 souls, having atoned for their sins, become the {{wp|108 Stars of Destiny}}. They are reincarnated centuries later as 108 outlaws, the heroes of the novel.
 
====Name origin====
Spiritomb is a combination of ''spirit'' and ''tomb''.
