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.
Spiritomb has yet to appear in any of the films as of writing.
Spiritomb's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
Spiritomb is a part of the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. With three immunities and only one weakness in Fairy, Spiritomb has a wonderful typing that allows for it to check threats like Meloetta, Malamar, and Sigilyph. Good natural bulk also helps it consistently check the threats it is supposed to handle. Good movepool options allow for Spiritomb to be relatively flexible, as moves like Will-O-Wisp, Calm Mind, Taunt, Pursuit, and Sucker Punch give Spiritomb varying degrees of utility and allow for it to take on the bulky attacker role or the set-up sweeper role. Infiltrator allows for Spiritomb to bypass Substitute and hit the opposing Pokémon with a strong Sucker Punch or burn it with Will-O-Wisp. Its best set is a physical attacker set with Black Glasses that acts as an offensive check to certain threats that can Pursuit trap Psychic-types. A mono-attacker Calm Mind set takes a more passive approach to threatening teams, using Spiritomb's good bulk and typing to the fullest advantage and giving defensive teams a wincon to work with. Spiritomb's biggest problem is its low Speed stat that leaves it relying on Sucker Punch to hit faster foes, giving Pokémon like Houndoom and Emboar opportunity to take advantage. It lacks a strong Ghost STAB, forcing it to rely on Dark-type attacks to do meaningful damage. Spiritomb's HP stat is relatively lackluster and it has no form of reliable recovery.
