Ghost (type)

no edit summary
Ghost is the only type with more than one immunity. However, these immunities can be removed by {{m|Foresight}}, {{m|Odor Sleuth}}, or {{a|Scrappy}}. As of [[Generation VI]], Ghost-type Pokémon are immune to being trapped by all {{cat|trapping moves}} and [[Ability|Abilities]], including the binding effect of {{cat|binding moves|moves}} such as {{m|Infestation}}. Ghost types are also guaranteed to [[escape|run]] from wild battles regardless of Speed. Most Ghost-type Pokémon can learn {{m|Will-O-Wisp}} and other [[status ailmentcondition]]-inducing moves.
Ghost types are also unique in the fact that they have a type-specific attack: {{m|Curse}}, which works differently for Ghost-type Pokémon than it does for other Pokémon. The move {{m|Trick-or-Treat}} adds the Ghost type to the target's types.
