Morphs [Oak Catalog #]
- Gastly 
- Haunter 
- Gengar 
Physical DescriptionGastly appears to be a round, ball-like organism with large eyes and mouth surrounded by a cloud of gas. Haunters are triangular shaped heads with disembodied hands. While Gengar are large, shadowy, imp-like creatures.
Notable BiologyAll members of the Gastly line have the ability to levitate, phase through matter, and even become completely invisible. Of these abilities only levitation has any scientific basis. The Gastly line is known to emit strange electromagnetic waves, presumably these waves are manipulated by the Gastly in order to float. Similar to how Magnemite levitate. Its intangibility and invisibility abilities continue to baffle scientists. Biological samples taken from the Gastly line show that they do not have DNA in the conventional sense. In fact they seem not to be carbon-based lifeforms at all. As their molecular structure seems to be more akin to a gas compound. A gas that is not found normally on Earth. Gastly, Haunter, and Gengar observed over long periods of time have shown no signs of aging. In fact, specimens confirmed to have been owned by trainers over 100 years ago are nearly identical to modern specimens. Leading to the theory that the Gastly line do not age, and may in fact be completely immortal. Some scientists have theorized that the Gastly line, and indeed possibly other "Ghost" pokemon, may be inter-dimensional beings. Citing their radically different biology and blatant disregard of the Laws of Physics as evidence. The fact that Gastly are almost completely etheral, Haunter less so except for the strange disembodied hands, while Genger seems to have a solid physical form. Indicating that their "evolution" may in fact be them getting used to our dimension, manifesting more and more of their true forms, points toward this theory. More research on this subject is required.
HabitatThe Gastly line is commonly found in caves, old abandoned buildings, graveyards and burial sites, or other locations associated with death and the supernatural. The scientific community stresses that this is merely a coincidence and "ghost" pokemon are not actually supernatural. Recent research at these sites have reported strange electromagnetic waves, similar to the ones emitted by Gastly. More research on this subject is required.
DietGastly seem to be omnivorous, eating whatever food they seem to care for. Specimens observed in the wild have shown no consistent eating patterns. Other specimens have been observed to go for long periods of time with out food or water with no ill effects. Indicating that they may not need to eat at all.
HazardsThe Gastly line, especially Gengar, have been known to be extremely mischievous. Going out of their way to frighten, trick, steal from, and otherwise harass humans. This in itself is not particularly harmful. Except that Gastly have a tendency to lick humans and the saliva of the Gastly line contains a poison that causes shivering and chills in humans. Haunter's saliva is especially toxic and can cause these symptoms for long periods of time. It's mostly harmless in small doses but can cause musle and nerve damage, possibly even death, in large ones. In addition the gas produced by Gastly is highly toxic and can be deadly is inhaled in large quantities over a short period of time.
CourtingThe mating ritual of the Gastly line usually consist of mates circling each other, then coming close and licking each other, exchanging saliva in a form of "kissing". After a while the female vanishes for a period of time. Then reappears with a fully developed egg. Similar rituals are conducted for other species within the same Egg Group. Where the female goes, or what happens during that time remains unknown at this time.
Social StructureGastly, Haunter, and Gengar tend to gather in small groups from anywhere from 3 to 10. Though groups of over 50 have been observed in areas of high Gastly concentrations. These groups lack any real organization or leadership structure. —- That seems to be everything. Anything I might of missed?
