Ghosts were in the area Pokemon Series from the beginning, with both humanoid ghosts and ghost Pokémon appearing throughout. Ghost-type Pokémon have long been popular, and while the list has grown over the years, there’s still plenty of love for one of the originals.
The Gastly, Haunter, and Gengar family tree of Pokemon remains a popular one, particularly its final incarnation, Gengar. However, there is still a lot of love for Gastly and one Pokemon Fan came up with an idea of what a cross between a pumpkin and a Gastly might look like.
Reddit user GUSTAV_1_2_3 shared one of his latest creations with the Pokemon subreddit, and fans seem to like it. The mash-up does a great job of portraying a pumpkin while still retaining the traits Gastly is known for, like his big mischievous eyes, fangs, and creepy aura. Instead of the Pokemon’s usual coloring, it’s turned all orange to match the pumpkin it’s become.
GUSTAV_1_2_3 hasn’t revealed any information about their idea behind this particular fanart creation, so it’s not immediately clear if this is meant to be a real Pokemon or if Gastly simply owns the pumpkin. After all, haunting and interacting with physical objects is something spirits are known for in lore. However, many in the comments envisioned it being a Pokemon itself, maybe even a regional variant of Gastly in a future area. The typing has also been questioned, as this could easily be a Fire/Ghost-type, Grass/Ghost-type, or even an attempt at Dark-type.
Almost every Pokemon The game has introduced a new Ghost type or two to the title, as well as the series’ unexplained human ghosts. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet may very well do the same, but at the moment many details about the future of the series are unknown as not much has been announced about new Pokemon in the game. Unfortunately for fans of this design, it’s purely fan-made and won’t be appearing in a game any time soon.
While Gastly may or may not eventually take on a regional form, it’s clear that players are still keen to see the Ghost guy. Gastly has recently received the fan treatment in the form of Gastly headphones that appear on a fan-made rug or receive a unique line of evolution based on Filipino mythology. While newer spirits get a lot of attention Pokemonthere’s still a lot of love for the trio that started it all.
