Spiritomb (ミカルゲ) is the 108th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Ghost/Dark-Type, and is known as the Forbidden Pokémon.

Spiritomb uses the Pressure Ability. This Ability doubles the amount of PP that an opponent uses whenever it uses one of its moves. A second Ability is available to Spiritomb from the Dream World, the Infiltrator Ability. This Ability ignores Statistic Boosts caused by Reflect and Light Screen, and ignores Safeguard's protection of Status Ailments.

Spiritomb doesn't evolve and doesn't have a pre-evolved form.

Spiritomb is in the Amorphous Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 7,680 Steps to hatch. It takes Spiritomb One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Physiology

[edit] Gender Differences

Spiritomb doesn't have any differences to differentiate between male and female.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

To obtain a Spiritomb in Diamond, Pearl and Platinum, first place an Odd Keystone on the Hallowed Tower on Route 209, then interact with 32 people in the Sinnoh Underground (the Hikers that are underground don't count). The people that are counted are those that are linked up locally via the Nintendo DS' Wireless Communications. Alternatively, a Spiritomb can be sent to Heart Gold or Soul Silver from the Pokéwalker, as Spiritomb appears on the Pokéwalker course "Quiet Cave"

Spiritomb appears on the Dream World course Spooky Manor after surpassing 10,000 Dream Points, and can also be obtained as part of an In-Game Trade in Nimbasa City that takes place in Black 2 and White 2.

[edit] Spin-Off Games

Spiritomb appears at the most interior part of the Sealed Ruins, Sky Rift B15 & DPB1-B5 and Sky Stairway 1F-49F in Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky. Sky Rift is called Sky Fissure in Explorers of Sky. Spiritomb is exclusive to Stormy Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Mystery Marsh 13F-19F and at Legendary Wetland on the following floors: 30, 32-36, 38, 41, 45, and 47-49.

Spiritomb is a Boss Pokémon in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. It is the Boss faced in the Chroma Ruins.

Spiritomb can be found at Yaksha and Spectra in Pokémon Conquest.

[edit] Trading Card Game

Spiritomb is listed as an Uncommon Card in the Supreme Victors set, and as a Rare Card in the LEgends Awakened, Arceus and Triumphant sets.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

A Wild Spiritomb appears in the episode The Keystone Pops after Ash's Buizel inadvertently set the sealed Pokémon free, leaving it up to Ash and company to seal Spiritomb back into its prison. This is its only appearance in the Anime as of writing.

[edit] Movies

Spiritomb has yet to appear in any of the films as of writing.

[edit] Manga

Spiritomb's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Spiritomb (along with Sableye), shares the distinction of being one of only two Pokémon with no weakness. Since it is a combination Ghost/Dark type, no attack is "super effective" against it under normal circumstances. Moves like Foresight and the ability Scrappy can negate its immunity to Fighting and Normal, allowing opponents to hit the Fighting weakness of its Dark typing. Its ability, Pressure, doubles the PP cost of any moves used by a foe. This ability, combined with its resistances and wide movepool of defensive moves, makes it a highly effective "tank".

However, despite this, Spiritomb fell to the Rarely-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling in Generation V because it doesn't have the moves to prevent itself from getting walled by Steel-Type Pokémon.
