Learn More About The Gengar Drawing

Gengar is a dual-type shadow Pokémon of Generation I. He is both a ghost and poison type Pokémon. Gengar evolves from Haunter when he is traded from one Pokémon trainer to another.

If given the Mega Stone Gengarite, it can evolve into Mega Gengar. It dwells anywhere there are shadows including caves, spooky buildings, night time city streets, and even in the corners of rooms.

Gengar has the unique ability to hide itself perfectly in the shadow of any object. Gengar can also fly through the air and absorb heat from its environment, leaving a cold chill in its wake.

It is mischievous and enjoys practical jokes, especially those that frighten its victim. It often pretends to be someone's shadow before scaring them with its antics.

In the Pokémon animated series, which debuted in 1996, Pokémon trainer Ash Ketchum first meets Gengar in the episode entitled "Tower of Terror."

Ash finds himself spending an uncomfortable time with a Gastly, a Haunter, and a Gengar while in Lavender Town.

Gengar has appeared in movies, cartoons, video games, and manga. He has also inspired trading cards, plush toys, clothing and home decor items, and even popsicles and lollipops.

Famous Gengar include Agatha's Gengar, which battled and defeated Ash's Pikachu, and the Giant Gengar which was awakened to fight a giant Alakazam near the ancient city of Pokémopolis.
