The Ghost Type is based upon Pokémon of a spiritual nature, some of which take on a spooky-like appearance. Some of the attacks utilized by the Ghost-Type have a secondary effect, while others have a direct impact on the opponent by disrupting the status of its target.
And since Generation VI, Ghost Types are immune to all moves and abilities that prevent switching out, such as Fire Spin and Magnet Pull. In wild battles, they are also guaranteed to be able to escape ignoring the normal factors that could cause an escape attempt to fail.
The following table represnts how the Ghost-Type matches up against other types of Pokémon.
