Pokédex Description

Generation 1
Red, Blue

Under a full moon, this POKéMON likes to mimic the shadows of people and laugh at their fright.

Yellow

A GENGAR is close by if you feel a sudden chill. It may be trying to lay a curse on you.

Generation 2
Gold

It steals heat from its surroundings. If you feel a sudden chill, it is certain that a GENGAR appeared.

Silver

To steal the life of its target, it slips into the prey's shadow and silently waits for an opportunity.

Crystal

Hiding in people's shadows at night, it absorbs their heat. The chill it causes makes the victims shake.

Generation 3
Ruby, Sapphire

Sometimes, on a dark night, your shadow thrown by a streetlight will suddenly and startlingly overtake you. It is actually a GENGAR running past you, pretending to be your shadow.

Emerald

Deep in the night, your shadow cast by a streetlight may suddenly overtake you. It is actually a GENGAR running past you, pretending to be your shadow.

FireRed

It is said to emerge from darkness to steal the lives of those who become lost in mountains.

LeafGreen

On the night of a full moon, if shadows move on their own and laugh, it must be GENGAR’s doing.

Generation 4
Diamond

It hides in shadows. It is said that if GENGAR is hiding, it cools the area by nearly 10 degrees F.

Pearl

Lurking in the shadowy corners of rooms, it awaits chances to steal its prey’s life force.

Platinum

Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire

Sometimes, on a dark night, your shadow thrown by a streetlight will suddenly and startlingly overtake you. It is actually a Gengar running past you, pretending to be your shadow.

Generation 7
Moon

It apparently wishes for a traveling companion. Since it was once human itself, it tries to create one by taking the lives of other humans.

Ultra Sun

You can hear tales told all over the world about how Gengar will pay a visit to children who are naughty.
