  • Gastly, its evolution Haunter, and Flabébé are the lightest Pokémon in existence.

Origin

Gastly seems to be based on general cartoonish ghosts and spirits, or maybe a will o' the wisp. It may also have been based on the Japaneseyoukai sōgen bi, the decapitated head of a monk whose head is doomed to wander the Earth, consumed by fire. Its Poison type is most likely a reference to poisonous or polluted gases.
