Gastly has no true form, due to its body being 95% poisonous gas.

However, it
consistently appears as a black, spherical Pokmon surrounded by a purple haze. It
has a wide, pink mouth with two visible fangs. Though its eyes seem to extend past
its round body, visible eyelids surround them. The toxic gas surrounding the main
body can induce fainting and suffocation, and is capable of enshrouding an Indian
elephant within two seconds. Because it is mostly gas, Gastly will dwindle away
when exposed to strong winds.
The anime suggests that Gastly has a playful personality, often frightening and
playing pranks on people for fun. However, it has shown a willingness to preserve or
pass on the memories of departed humans. It has further been shown changing
form and creating illusions, and it is capable of phasing through solid objects and
forming tangible hands out of its gasses. The anime has shown Gastly living in old,
dilapidated buildings, but it can also be found in caves.

trophy. It is immune to melee attacks.

NA: This Ghost/Poison-type Pokmon is made up of several toxic gasestouching it


would be really unpleasant. Instead, try to take it out with projectiles. It's not the
fastest enemy in Smash Run, but occasionally it may try to chase down a fighter, so
be careful around this gaseous foe.
PAL: In Smash Run, these Ghost- and Poison-type Pokmon tend to move slowly, and
then, without warning, chase after you at high speed. You'll get hurt if they so much
as come into contact with you, so be on your guard. As ghosts, they're immune to
direct attacks. The only way to defeat them is to hit them with projectiles or items.
