Polteageist (ポットデス Pottodesu) is a Ghost-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

Biology

Physiology

Polteageist resembles a living teapot. It has a pair of yellow swirly eyes and a purple body. Its feet dangles at the bottom of its body as well.

Behavior

If it gains its trainer's trust, Polteageist may allow its tea to be sampled. However, anyone who consumes this type of tea in large amounts will have an upset stomach.

Polteageist seeks refuge within hotels and eating establishments, camouflaging itself amongst tableware. It is able to reproduce itself via transferring its own powers inside leftover tea. Because of this, Polteageist is often considered to be a pest.

Natural abilities

Polteageist's body is made entirely out of black tea, which is believed to have a very distinct aroma and flavor.

Pokédex entries

  • Sword

    Forgery: This species lives in antique teapots. Most pots are forgeries, but on rare occasions, an authentic work is found.
    Non-Forgery: Trainers Polteageist trusts will be allowed to experience its distinctive flavor and aroma firsthand by sampling just a tiny bit of its tea.

  • Shield

    Forgery: Leaving leftover black tea unattended is asking for this Pokémon to come along and pour itself into it, turning the tea into a new Polteageist.
    Non-Forgery: When angered, it launches tea from its body at the offender's mouth. The tea causes strong chills if swallowed.

Origin

Polteageist is most likely based on a ghost inhabiting a teapot. More specifically, it may be inspired by the morinji-no-okama, a youkai spirit from Japanese folklore that manifests as a possessed tea kettle.

Etymology

Poltegeist's English name is a combination of poltergeist and tea.

Its Japanese name, Pottodesu, comes from potto desu (it is a teapot)
