Ghost (type)

115 bytes added, 5 February
* 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 types 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 ''[[Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon]]'', Ghost-type Pokémon, despite their name, can still 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 Elder. It is later revealed that Elder is has since died, its body now a regular tree, though the circumstances of the death weren't revealed. {{mov|Giratina}} is another Ghost-type whose life has been in danger, in ''[[M11|Giratina and the Sky Warrior]]''. However, despite this, it appears that Ghost-type Pokémon's lifespan is in fact indefinite; a {{p|Yamask}} shown in ''[[BW014|A Night in the Nacrene City Museum!]]'' was told to be millennia old, suggesting that while Ghost-type Pokémon can still be killed, they aren't subject to the ravages of time and can live indefinitely.
* All Ghost-type moves are eligible to be used in [[Sky Battle]]s.
* The Ghost and Dragon types are the only types that are weak to themselves.
