    Let’s Talk Types;Ghost

    Info on ghost and partial ghost types in the Sonaverse

    Ghost types! Associated with trickery and mind melting paranoia,they are the masters of people’s phobias.

    The type was named for its similarities to actual ghosts,although,you won’t see Ghost types actually walking through walls or going invisible,not unless they have the ability infiltrator at least.

    They are most known for their ability to manipulate people’s senses,causing themselves to *appear* to do crazy ghost things. This also allows them to cause people to hallucinate their greatest fears,with enough practice of course.

    Mainly active at dusk and dawn,Ghost types are well adapted to low light environments,although they don’t do well in total darkness,they can still see well in dimmer settings. This allows them to have a slight leg up over their dark type cousins,who get flashbanged by the sun just by going outside for two seconds.

    Notorious in battle for their trickiness and cruel mind games,some people make the mistake of comparing them the dark types. Dark types target a general fear that exists within everyone,a real,rational,physical fear,well ghost types target specific,much more irrational fears,phobias,and trauma,like someone’s fear of drowning,clowns or needles.

    Ghost types,much like dark types tend to be a bit paler then their non-ghost relatives,although they tend to look a bit more actually dead and less ‘I haven’t seen the sun in 6 months’. They vary greatly in colours,but purples are common.

    They do not glow in the dark like dark types,aside from their eyes,which will glow,though,some parts of their body,such as hair and scales,may capture and reflect light in a way that create the illusion of a faint glow.

    They seem to by tied to shadows,based on the names of a lot of their moves,but in actuality they cannot manipulate shadows at all,ghost energy just happens to look like stereotypical ‘shadow magic’. Add the fact that a lot of people are scared of things lurking in the darkness,and shadowy figures looming over them,the Ghost types association with shadows becomes much clearer.

    They make use of psychological warfare in fights,aiming to distract and cripple opponents through hallucinations and irrational fears,and their ability to sense fear allows them to better pin point what they should be showing a person for maximum fear.

    Most ghost type species are more predatorily inclined,requiring plenty of protein to thrive,although not all require this diet to survive.

    Ghost types have a unique reputation for being driven and focused when it comes to combat,even when they’re ‘playing with their food’,and most ghost types will struggle to not crumble under the weight of their own fears,or when facing down a particularly angry dark type.

    They are known for efficiency and stealth,their ability to warp peoples senses makes passing by enemies a breeze for any ghost type with enough training to keep their cool. A notorious ghost type was Deadhand,a British sniper during WW2,with her dual Ground/Ghost typing and infiltrator ability,she made quick work of her foes,able to move around the battlefield unseen.

    Ghost types are strong against other Ghost types,due to their ability to target fears,as well as psychic types,who’s psychic powers makes getting specific fears just right even easier for ghost types,crippling the psychic types,who primarily rely on mental strength in most combat situations.

    Ghost type energy can’t touch Normal types,but thankfully,Ghosts can’t be hit with normal,or fighting type energy,it will simply miss,or phase straight through them,unless an ability like scrappy is at play

    Ghost types resist Poison and Bug. Bugs are a common phobia,and ghost types being supposed masters of phobias,would obviously come out on top. Poison it a trickier one to pin down,although it’s possible that ghost types developed a resistance to poison to appear more ‘dead’ to scare off potential threats,a trait that seems to have stuck around to modern day

    Ghost types are weak to dark,and ghost. Dark types trump based on their control over darkness itself,and their mastery of true,raw,physical fear,and ghost,for reasons discussed before hand,two ghost types can target each other’s raw fears,revealing things most ghost types would rather not face.

    Oh the dynamic of Clay having had a past thing with Jack that meant more to him than it did the big guy also stands true in horror AU, so as you can imagine when he finds out he's gonna be the medic on an expedition and research team that contains not only Jack but the new love of his life Damien he has some. Complex feelings. And he thinks those feelings are going to be 'i have to watch my ex who's still my best friend be happy with another man, i hate this' but instead it ends up being 'FELL IN LOVE WITH MY BEST FRIENDS BOYFRIEND AFTER I STOPPED HATING HIS GUTS OOPS!!!'

    And i don't think this gets resolved 'till after Clay becomes a meatmonster? Like i think he keeps all this repressed deep inside until he's a slopbeast, and then eventually it comes out and the three end up in one big thing together; So it's a win for him, really. The best thing to come out of the most horrific experience in his life- sure, he died and came back as a horrific abomination, buuuut he gets two boyfriends so!! Everything's coming up Clay!

    #ghost's oc ramble #i've mentioned b4 the thing w clay and jack and damien and how ouch emotionally it is #but it DOES get resolved in all au's into a poly type deal! #specifically in every au the 3 of them always end up in a closed polyamorous relationship #because its nice and i like it..... #(And by closed poly relationship i just mean they dont date or see ppl outside the relationship its just the 3 of them)

    Headcanon #57

    In the wild, Misdreavus are known for scaring people to feed on their fears. In captivity, Misdreavus make great partners for those with anxiety. Instead of intentionally scaring an anxious person, Misdreavus will feed off their handler's anxiety. This is beneficial for both the Pokémon and its handler because this can help with calming anxiety.

    #pokemon headcanons#misdreavus headcanons#headcanon 57 #although they are tricksters and intentionally scare people #misdreavus are one of the nicer ghost types
