Trivia
* In [[Pokémon Conquest]], Ghost-type Pokémon which are not part-{{t|Flying}} or have {{a|Levitate}} are shown with an animation of physically passing through enemies, referencing the common belief that real life ghosts can pass through solid objects. They cannot, however, pass through any other obstacle on the field in-game.
* Ghost and Dark are super effective against the same types. As of Generation VI, the only differences between them is that Dark-type moves are not very effective on Fighting or Fairy while Ghost-type moves do not affect Normal Pokémon.
* As shown in the {{pkmn|anime}}'s {{series|Sun & Moon}}, Ghost-type Pokémon, despite their name, have lifespans and can die. This was first mentioned in ''[[SM073|Why Not Give Me a Z-Ring Sometime?]]'', where [[Acerola]] revealed that her {{shiny}} {{p|Mimikyu}}, Mimikins, is in fact the ghost of a deceased Mimikyu. Later, in ''[[SM125|A Timeless Encounter!]]'', it is revealed that {{an|Professor Kukui}} had once befriended a {{pkmn2|Totem}} {{p|Trevenant}} that he [[nickname]]d OhjiElder. It is later revealed that OhjiElder had passed away sometime afterwards, its body now a regular tree.
* All Ghost-type moves are eligible to be used in [[Sky Battle]]s.
