# Ghost-Type Moves

Ghost type pokemon is notable for having a few pokemon with low HP and moves. In battles, Ghost type pokemons are useful because it's the only type that has two immunities: Normal and Fighting, both of which are common move types.

Starting from the VI generation, the types of ghosts are also immune to the movements and abilities that prevent escape from flight, such as blocking signs and ghost signs. Pokémon of this type are generally related to fear, darkness and life after death. They usually live in abandoned houses, cemeteries, funerals and dark and uninhabited places, such as caves. Also, phantom-type Pokémon tend to be extremely bad and make jokes about humans just to see their faces and their reactions. Interestingly, the more a human being is afraid, the more Pokémon Pokémon will have the power to tease. In the worst case scenario, some phantom-type Pokémon can behave relatively deadly, such as attaching Jellicent to ships and their crews or the evolving family of Litwick, draining the vital energy of lost people.

Some of Ghost's famous Pokémon coaches include Agatha, third member of Kanto Elite Four; Morty, the fourth animator of Johto; Phoebe, second member of the Hoenn Elite Four; Fantina, fifth gym manager in the Sinnoh region; Shauntal, a member of Unova Elite Four; and Acerola, a test captain from Ulaula Island, Alola, as well as her third Elite Four member.

Pokemon Go type chart: strength, weakness and effectiveness for all types

Understanding Pokemon Strengths, Weaknesses, and Resistances is vital to winning in battle. This type chart helps you to be super-effective every time.

The Pokemon Go Type Chart is probably the single most important element of the game to master, at least if you're planning to get involved in battling. This page lists all of the type strengths, weaknesses and effectiveness so that you can make sense of it all, figuring out the strength, weakness and ideal battle situation for every Pokemon.

There's a lot of Pokemon types to be aware of, and how they interact is actually slightly different in Pokemon Go to the rest of the series. We'll help you to help you keep track of it all. With this page, you can crush it in any battle. On this page:

  • Pokemon Go strengths & weakness type chart
  • How Pokemon Type effects battling in Go

Pokemon Go Type Chart: Strengths, Effectiveness, Weaknesses and Resistances explained

In Pokemon Go, Every type of Pokemon has four different relationships with other types any trainer should be aware of. That is:

  • Strong Against : represented on our type chart as Strong Vs, attacks from the listed type against the type listed here will deal additional damage to your opponent. This is 'Super Effective'.
  • Weak Against : represented here as Weak Vs, attacks from the listed type against these types will do less damage to the enemy. This is 'Not very effective...'
  • Resistance : listed as resist, taking attacks from this type will do much less damage to you.
  • Vulnerable : your type's weaknesses. Attacks of these types will deal more damage - watch out!

So, for instance, Offensively a Ground-type Pokemon/move is Strong against Poison, Rock, Steel, Fire and Electric types, dealing double damage to them. It only does 50% damage against Flying, Bug and Grass Pokemon. Defensively, that same Ground-type Pokemon will take reduced damage from Poison, Rock and Electric Pokemon but also take double damage from Water, Grass and Ice - which is vulnerable to.

With that explained, here's the full Pokemon Go type chart :

If a Pokemon is giving you trouble at a gym or during a raid, consider their type and try to structure your team so that you have the correct Pokemon type and the right moves attached to that Pokemon in order to make battles go your way. Remember that both Pokemon moves and Pokemon themselves have types, too!

It can all get a bit complicated - so, yes, you can have a Fire and Dragon type Pokemon who also has a Flying-type move, and all of that might factor in to how effective that move is when you use it.

In the case of Pokemon that can evolve multiple ways type can also influence which you might want - as our page on Eevee Evolution in Pokemon Go explains. Basically, this Pokemon Go Type Chart should be used in conjunction with the Best Pokemon in Pokemon Go to build a formidable team for battling in gyms and raids.

How Types Impact Battle in Pokemon Go

As hardcore Pokemon fans will already know quite well, each Pokemon has one or two types, and types determine much about how that Pokemon battles. For the Pokemon Trainer, type is important because certain types are strong against others, meaning you can deal or take additional damage, or on the other hand lessen the amount of damage received.

That all makes sense and is nice and easy - though things get more complicated when you start introducing more obtuse Pokemon Types types like Fairy or Dragon, or when you consider Pokemon with multiple types. Then you have to consider that moves have types - so a fire-type Pokemon like Charizard can easily come stacked with Dragon and Flying-type moves, meaning its damage output on the type chart is attached to both of those types rather than its raw type.

There's 18 different types, and each type is either strong, weak or neutral versus other types . At the most basic level with the starter Pokemon this breaks down to Rock, Paper, Scissors - Charmander (Fire) beats Bulbasaur (Grass) who beats Squirtle (Water) which comes full circle by beating Fire.

The Pokemon Company is building up the hype for the next game in the franchise in quite an interesting fashion.

The next few months are going to be quite a feat for Pokemon fans, as two games are all set to arrive. Firstly, we have the remake, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond, and Shining Pearl which will be arriving next month. Along with that, we also have Pokemon Legends: Arceus releasing next year, which is a spinoff title in the franchise.

When it comes to Pokemon Legends: Arceus , the game has quite a lot of expectations. It will be marking a new direction for the franchise, as it is the first-ever open-world Pokemon game. It might sound quite surprising, but yes, it took over two decades to implement an open-world formula into Pokemon games.

The developers have been frequently dropping teasers for the upcoming game. Just yesterday, a trailer was dropped but it was totally distorted. We didn't learn a lot from that trailer, except for the fact that it was found in Canalave Library by a researcher. However, today a cleaned version of the trailer was uploaded and it has managed to build the perfect hype for the game.

The trailer reveals the Hisuian forms of Zorua and Zoroark, and it seems quite fit with the Halloween theme. Along with that, it was also revealed that both the Pokemon will be Normal and Ghost-type.

This has got many fans to wonder if there are any Ghost and Normal-type Pokemon. While there are numerous Pokemon of each type, Zorua and Zoroark are the FIRST Normal and Ghost-type Pokemon. In short, these are the only Pokemon type that has this given type.

A hand holds up an iPhone with Rayquaza’s Pokémon Go stat screen

Just like other Pokémon games, Pokémon Go features many different types of Pokémon, all with their own strengths and weaknesses. In this Pokémon Go guide, we’ll explain how Pokémon types work, what type strengths and weaknesses are, and provides a table to help you learn what is strong against what.

Pokémon Go types, strengths, and weakness

Pokémon also has its own set of weaknesses and strengths . For example, bug-type Pokémon are weak against fire-, flying-, and rock-type moves. Bug-type moves are strong against dark-, grass-, and psychic-type moves. Fire-, flying-, and rock-type moves will do double damage against a bug-type, like Caterpie.

Some Pokémon have two types, which means they can have a doubled weakness or have their strength and weaknesses cancel out to just take normal damage. Rayquaza, a dragon- and flying-type, takes four times the damage from ice-type moves. On the flip side, Shuckle, a rock- and bug-type, takes normal damage from fire-type moves, since rock-type is strong against fire-type.

Strengths and weaknesses also aren’t necessarily just opposites of each other. Though fire-type move deal less damage to water-type Pokémon and water-type moves do doubled damage against fire-type Pokémon, this isn’t the case with every type. For example, fighting-type moves are strong against normal-types, but normal-types just do regular damage against fighting-types, rather than do reduced damage.

Knowing what Pokémon’s strengths and weaknesses are is an important aspect of raiding and battling. To do the most damage you can, you should make sure that your Pokémon’s moves are strong against what it’s battling.

Memorizing all of that can get confusing, so here’s a chart to help you out.

Hisuian Zorua And Zoroark Are Normal And Ghost-Type Pokémon

The Pokémon Company International and Game Freak have confirmed more information about  Hisuian Zorua  and  Hisuian Zoroark  in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, which were revealed in a trailer last week .

Hisuian Zorua

Category: Spiteful Fox Pokémon Type: Normal/Ghost Height: 2’4″ (0.7 m) Weight: 27.6 lbs. (12.5 kg)

Reborn as a Ghost-Type Using the Power of Spite These Zorua migrated to the Hisui region after being driven from other lands by humans, who shunned the Pokémon for manifesting uncanny illusions. But the Zorua perished, unable to survive the harsh Hisuian environment and strife with other Pokémon. Their lingering souls were reborn in this Ghost-type form through the power of their malice toward humans and Pokémon. Disguising Themselves and Feeding on Targets’ Terror If Hisuian Zorua spot a lone person or Pokémon, the Zorua may appear before them in a guise mimicking the target’s appearance. Unlike the illusions of the previously discovered form of Zorua, these ghostly mimicries are created using spiteful power emitted from the long fur on Hisuian Zorua’s head, around its neck, and on its tail.

Hisuian Zoroark

Category: Baneful Fox Pokémon Type: Normal/Ghost Height: 5’3″ (1.6 m) Weight: 160.9 lbs. (73 kg) Cursed Illusions Erupt Forth from Its Voluminous Coat The spiteful power emitted from Hisuian Zoroark’s long, writhing fur projects terrifying illusions—and can also inflict physical harm upon foes, damaging their bodies from both inside and out. And the illusions that Zoroark projects have expressions of such utter malice toward every last thing upon this world that those who see them are said to be driven mad by the terror. A Pokémon with an Unexpected Soft Side Hisuian Zoroark is ferociously hostile and aggressive toward people and other Pokémon. But it appears to have a compassionate streak for those it considers close or like family.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 28th January 2022.

Pokémon Legends Arceus: Best Ghost-Type Pokémon

Posted: October 10, 2023 | Last updated: January 8, 2024

Though it began with only three total Pokémon along one evolutionary line (Gastly-Haunter-Gengar), Ghost-type Pokémon have remained a favorite of players through the years. With Ghost having an immunity to Normal and Fighting-type attacks without an identifying move (though the same applies in reverse) and only two weaknesses, Ghost-type Pokémon are sure to be a strong addition to your team

Below, you will find a list of of the best Ghost-type Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. There are a few important notes to keep in mind when viewing this list. Firstly, this list  won’t include Hisuian Typhlosion or any Legendary and Mythical Pokémon . Secondly, each Pokémon on this list has  at least a Base Stats Total of 480 . While a little low, the gap between one and eight is only 50 Base Stats Points, one of the smaller gaps for these lists. Thirdly, secondary type (if any) matters when considering any added Ghost type weaknesses .

1. Basculegion (Base Stats Total: 530)

Basculegion serves as a Ride Pokémon later in the game. It also made the best Water-types list. However, you can also obtain one of your own as an evolution of Basculin (White-Striped Form), exclusive to Hisui.

The Water- and Ghost-type Basculegion has both aesthetic and Base Stats distribution differences depending on its sex. A male Basculegion - with red stripes and accents - holds a 120 in HP and 112 in Attack . Its other stats have a 15-point range with Special Attack at 80, Speed at 78, Special Defense at 75, and Defense at 65. While it holds high HP and Attack, its lack of Speed means it will most likely be hit before landing attacks and its low defense may mean that high HP pool is a bit wasted.

Female Basculegion - with white and light blue accents - holds a 120 in HP, 100 in Special Attack, and 92 in Attack . Its Speed is 78, Special Defense 75, and Defense 65. Female Basculegion is a bit more balanced than the male, though both still have low defenses .

Basculegion learns Bite and Crunch, Zen Headbutt, Wave Crash, Hex, and Shadow Ball. It can learn through move tutors Aqua Tail, Ominous Wind, Water Pulse, Psychic, and Ice Beam.

Basculegion holds weaknesses to Electric, Grass, Ghost, and Dark . As with all Ghost-type Pokémon, Basculegion is immune to Normal and Fighting without an identifying move, though the same applies to your Ghost-type attacks against Normal and Fighting. Offensively, Basculegion's typing is super effective against Fire, Rock, Ground, Ghost, and Psychic.

Basculegion can be obtained by evolving White-Striped Basculin . White-Striped Basculin are located at Cobalt Coastlands, Coronet Highlands, and Alabaster Icelands . White-Striped Basculin only evolves into Basculegion after suffering 294 total recoil damage in battle .

2. Dusknoir (Base Stats Total: 525)

Unlike most Ghost-types, the Gripper Pokémon Dusknoir can serve as your tank, and one that doesn't have to deal with the generally high physical attacks of Fighting-types.

The pure Ghost-type Dusknoir has 135 in both Defense and Special Defense, and a 100 in Attack . However, because of those stats being at least 100, its other stats are paltry with Special Attack at 65 and HP and Speed at 45. Still, the low Speed is standard for tank types. The unfortunate thing is the low Special Attack considering most Ghost-type attacks are special attacks.

Dusknoir learns Shadow Sneak, Hex, Dark Pulse, Shadow Ball, and Psychic. It only learns two physical attacks with Leech Life in addition to Shadow Sneak. However, move tutors bridge that gap with Dusknoir able to learn Bulldoze, Fire Punch, Ice Punch, Thunder Punch, and Rock Smash, though the only physical Ghost attack it learns is still Shadow Sneak.

Dusknoir is weak to Ghost and Dark . It holds immunities to Normal and Fighting unless a move like Odor Sleuth is used a turn prior, with the same applying in reverse. Dusknoir can cover its two weaknesses as long as it has a Ghost- or Dark- and Fighting-type attacks. Offensively, Dusknoir is super effective against Ghost and Psychic .

Dusknoir is located at Deadwood Haunt . If you want to evolve one from a Duskull, those can be found at Deadwood Haunt, Arena's Approach, and Avalanche Slopes . To evolve into Dusknoir, use a Reaper Cloth on Dusclops .

3. Hisuian Zoroark (Base Stats Total: 510)

A choice for the strongest Pokémon list , Hisuian Zoroark carries a unique typing and morbid backstory that aptly fits its description as the Baneful Fox Pokémon.

The Normal- and Ghost-type Hisuian Zoroark is a fast attacker. Its Special Attack is 125, Speed 110, and Attack 100 . However, its Defense and Special Defense are 60 while its HP is 55. Still, it should be fast and powerful enough - coupled with its typing - to faint opponents before it's even hit.

Zoroark learns Snarl, Bitter Malice, Shadow Claw, and Extrasensory in addition to Nasty Plot to really up its already high Special Attack. It can also learn Aerial Ace, Flamethrower, Dark Pulse, Shadow Ball, Sludge Bomb, and Rock Smash.

With its typing, Hisuian Zoroark holds a weakness to Dark only . Its Normal-type nullifies its Ghost weakness in addition to being immune to Fighting and Normal without Odor Sleuth or Foresight being used a move prior. Offensively, Hisuian Zoroark's typing is super effective against Ghost and Psychic . Rock Smash also counters its lone weakness, and Zoroark should be more than fast enough to land before being hit with a super effective attack.

Hisuian Zoroark can be found at Lake Acuity and Bonechill Wastes , the latter where you'll find an Alpha Zoroark . If you want to evolve one from a Hisuian Zorua, those are found at Bonechill Wastes .

4. Gengar (Base Stats Total: 500)

The original final Ghost-type evolution, Gengar is still a great addition with its Base Stats Total of 500.

Gengar is fast and favors special attacks. The Ghost- and Poison-type Gengar boasts a Special Attack of 130 and Speed of 110 . While its other stats are within 15 points of each other, they're low with Special Defense at 75, Attack at 65, and HP and Defense at 60.

Gengar learns Hex, Venoshock, Dark Pulse, and Shadow Ball in addition to status attacks like Poison Gas and Hypnosis; Venoshock's damage is doubled if the target is already poisoned. It can also learn Thunderbolt, Sludge Bomb, Dazzling Gleam, Drain Punch, Energy Ball, and Icy Wind, the latter four covering weaknesses.

Gengar holds weaknesses to Ghost, Dark, Psychic, and Ground , the latter two due to its secondary Poison-type. It is immune to Normal and Fighting unless an identifying move like Foresight is used a turn prior, with the same applying in reverse for Ghost-types. Offensively, Gengar's typing is super effective against Ghost, Psychic, Grass, and Fairy , though be cautious against Psychic-types.

Gengar is located in Space-Time Distortions . If you want to evolve one from a Gastly, those are located in many locations including Bolderoll Ravine, Celestica Ruins, Sacred Plaza, and Shrouded Ruins . To evolve into Gengar, either trade Haunter or use the Linking Cord (once obtained) .

5. Drifblim (Base Stats Total: 498)

The Blimp Pokémon just missed having a Base Stats Total of 500, but can still be a great addition to your team.

The Ghost- and Flying-type Drifblim has a whopping 150 in HP . However, its other stats range from great to poor. Drifblim's Special Attack is 90, Attack and Speed 80, Special Defense 54, and Defense 44. Its high HP is a bit offset by its low defenses even accounting for its immunities.

Drifblim learns Astonish, Hex, Mystical Fire, Extrasensory, and Shadow Ball. It can also learn Charge Beam, Thunderbolt, Psychic, and Ominous Wind.

Drifblim holds weaknesses to Ghost, Dark, Electric, Ice, and Rock . In addition to its immunities to Normal and Fighting, Drifblim is also immune to Ground due to its secondary Flying-type. Offensively, Drifblim's typing is super effective against Ghost, Psychic, Grass, Bug, and Fighting .

Drifblim is located in many locations, including Sandgem Flats, Deadwood Haunt, Ramanas Island, and Tranquility Cove . If you want to evolve one from a Drifloon, those are located at Aspiration Hill, Horseshoe Plains, Floaro Gardens, and Ramanas Island .

6. Mismagius (Base Stats Total: 495)

Mismagius is well-balanced in one sense of the word as the six Base Stats pair off into two trios of equal stats.

The pure Ghost-type is a speedy special attacker with 105 in Speed, Special Attack, and Special Defense . However, it pales on the physical side with HP, Attack, and Defense at 60.

Mismagius learns Confusion, Hex, Extrasensory, Power Gem, and Shadow Ball. It can also learn Thunderbolt, Psychic, Mystical Fire, Magical Leaf, Dark Pulse, and Dazzling Gleam.

Mismagius holds weaknesses to Ghost and Dark . In addition to its immunities to Normal and Fighting, Mismagius is also immune to Ground due to its Levitate ability . It has a benefit of being Flying-type without carrying any of its weaknesses. Offensively, Mismagius' typing is super effective against Ghost and Psychic . It can cover its weaknesses with moves like Dark Pulse, Shadow Ball, and Dazzling Gleam.

Mismagius can be found at Stonetooth Rows . If you want to evolve one from a Misdreavus, those can be found at Celestica Ruins, Sacred Plaza, Ice Column Chamber, and Stonetooth Rows . To evolve, use a Dusk Stone .

7. Spiritomb (Base Stats Total: 485)

Spiritomb makes another appearance after listing for best Dark-type Pokémon , though it might be the most cumbersome one to catch.

The Forbidden Pokémon holds 108 in Defense and Special Defese and 92 in Attack and Special Attack . Its HP is 50 while its Speed is a meager 35. Its made to take some hits - even with its lower HP - and dish out some punishment of its own.

Spiritomb learns Shadow Sneak, Hex, Extrasensory, Dark Pulse, and Shadow Ball. The Ghost- and Dark-type can also learn Hyper Beam, Icy Wind, Psychic, Snarl, and Water Pulse.

Thanks to its typing, Spiritomb holds a singular weakness to Fairy . In addition to its immunities to Normal and Fighting, Spiritomb is also immune to Psychic due to being Dark-type . Offensively, Spiritomb's typing is super effective against Ghost and Psychic .

Spiritomb can only be obtained by completing Request 22, Eerie Apparitions in the Night . You have to find 107 purple wisps during the nighttime throughout Hisui. When you collect one, you'll be notified how many are remaining in that area. After you collect 107 and turn it in, you'll be directed to the Odd Keystone in the Crimson Mirelands . Here, wisp 108 will become Spiritomb, your only chance to catch the level 60 Pokémon.

8. Froslass (Base Stats Total: 480)

The Snow Land Pokémon excels in Speed (110) . Attack and Special Attack are 80 while HP, Defense, and Special Defense are 70. It's fast, but it's a matter of holding up defensively while inflicting enough damage offensively.

The Ice- and Ghost-type learns Ice Shard, Bite and Crunch, Hex, Ice Fang, Shadow Ball, Icicle Crash, and Blizzard. It can also learn Ice Beam, Ominous Wind, Psychic, Thunderbolt, and Water Pulse.

Froslass holds weaknesses to Ghost, Dark, Rock, Steel, and Fire with immunities to Normal and Fighting. Offensively, Forslass' typing is super effective against Ghost, Psychic, Grass, Flying, Ground, and Dragon .

Froslass is located at Avalanche Slopes, Avalugg's Legacy, and Bonechil Wastes . If you want to evolve one from a Snorunt, those are located at at the same locations and Whiteout Valley . To evolve, use a Dawn Stone on a female Snorunt .
