Lore also has a tendency to pit the Gastly line of Pokémon against the Abra line, although more typically with Gengar and Alakazam having a shared aggression for one another. As the two species do not share a natural habitat and therefore have little to no actual interaction, reports of a rivalry between the two species is greatly exaggerated. Their depictions in media seem to stem with Gengar's tendency to be [[WiseGuy mischievous tricksters]] while Alakazam are more typically [[StraightMan stoic and disciplined]].

Although not popular, there have been recorded cases of people using Gastly gases to induce a 'high', also referred to in some circles as "Meeting the Reaper". Such actions are not only illegal in all regions, but highly discouraged as the wrong dosage and lead to severe nausea, loss of consciousness, nerve damage, and in rare cases, death.

As members of the Gastly line have been documented for centuries, tales of them have been prevalent in many historical tales, ranging from being playful mischief makers to [[DealWithTheDevil fiends looking to make infernal contracts with unsuspecting humans]]. Some ancient ruins even give the notion that these Pokémon were either revered in a cult-like fashion, or feared as dangerous, otherworldly demons (or both).

Whether these were actually their proper names or just placeholder names for what ancient people could not fathom is still debated to this day, although such depictions may be why the Gastly line are often considered the UrExample when it comes to 'Ghost'-type Pokémon.

Gengar are extremely rare in the wild, as typically to evolve from a Haunter exposure to a rare electromagnetic wave found in trading devices are required. It is believed exposure to this energy causes a chemical reaction in the gases that comprise Haunter's body, causing the chemicals to radically change density and cause Gengar's severe increase in weight. Some researchers have formed theorizes these electromagnetic waves are similar to a dense area of 'white noise' and that's what triggers evolution, backed up by one of the only places that wild Gengar are known to exist, the Old Chateau in Sinnoh, is also home to Rotom, a Pokémon known for being linked to white noise and manipulation of electronic devices. Other researchers argue the energy required to induce evolution is more extra-dimensional in origin, this based up by the other area known for wild Gengar sightings, the abandoned Thrifty Megamart in Alola, an area known for documented accounts of dimensional wormholes and alarming levels of energy disturbances.

While the need to eat is heavily debated, some researchers do have theorizes that while they may not need to eat, they may have a sense of taste, as members of all three lines seem to take great delight in using their tongues to lick many foreign objects. Other researchers are dubious of the claims of this licking being used for taste, and instead it simply being an effective way for them to spread their poison gas by way converting it to saliva.

There has also been [[Recap/PokemonS1E72TheAncientPuzzleOfPokemopolis rumors]] of both an [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever Ancient, Giant Gengar]] in rivalry with a similarly ancient, giant Alakazam residing somewhere within the Kanto region. Such wild rumors had piqued the interests of many renown scientists, as if such a thing were true, it very well could be another documented case of [[SuperMode Primal Reversion]] which had been thought to only possible in Groudon and Kyogre. However, with no evidence to give credence to these claims, the reports of a "Primal Gengar" and a "Primal Alakazam" were eventually dismissed as an urban legend.

Being comprised of gas makes Gastly quite fearful of heavy winds, as it can actually rob a Gastly of much of its limited mass and may even prove fatal to a Gastly should they be unable to find shelter in time. This is the primary reason for its evolution to have the film of purple 'skin' over its body, it develops a natural defense mechanism to avoid such circumstances of body loss caused by winds.

Many people believe that the entire line feeds upon souls, but no empirical evidence has been provided to back up these legends.

legends. Many scientists have argued that the endothermic nature of the line, coupled with the toxicity of their bodily composition, is the cause of such rumors.
