Haunter (Japanese: ゴースト Goosuto) is a Ghost/Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It evolves from Gastly starting at level 25 and evolves into Gengar when traded.

Biology

Physiology

Haunter is a purple, spiky, floating figure with triangular eyes, tiny pupils, fangs and disembodied, three-fingered, clawed hands.

Characteristics

Haunter can pass through solid walls. It is because of this that it is believed it is from another dimension. It can also sap away the life force of a target by licking them with its tongue. These licks will always cause constant convulsions to a licked being until it dies.

Trivia

  • Gastly and its evolved forms are the first and only Ghost/Poison-type Pokémon.

Etymology

  • Haunter is a mix of the words haunt, hunter, and specter. It could also just simply be the word haunter.
