Alternatively, a Spiritomb can be sent to Heart Gold or Soul Silver from the Pokéwalker, as Spiritomb appears on the Pokéwalker course "Quiet Cave"

 Pokémon Information
 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.
