Gastly (ゴース, Ghos) is a creature from the Pokémon games.


Gastly is a dual Ghost/Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I, and is categorized within the Pokédex at #092 as the "Gas Pokémon". It evolves into Haunter at level 25, which can then evolve into Gengar when traded with another player. Gastly and its evolutionary relatives were the only Ghost-type Pokémon in Generation I, and can be found in various games in the wild in haunted areas, caves, and at night.

Gastly's immunity to direct attacks in Smash is likely a reference to the Ghost type immunity to Normal- and Fighting-type moves in the Pokémon games.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS[edit]

As an enemy[edit]

Villager next to Gastly in Smash Run.

Gastly appears as an enemy in Smash Run, appearing somewhat commonly after a minute and thirty seconds have passed.

Gastly slowly floats towards the player, occasionally charging towards them after a random period of time. It causes 3% darkness damage on contact, and flies away if left alone long enough. Gastly is immune to all direct attacks, only taking damage from indirect ones, such as projectiles and other launched enemies.


NTSC This Ghost/Poison-type Pokémon is made up of several toxic gases—touching it would be really unpleasant. Instead, try to take it out with projectiles. It's not the fastest enemy in Smash Run, but occasionally it may try to chase down a fighter, so be careful around this gaseous foe.
PAL In Smash Run, these Ghost- and Poison-type Pokémon tend to move slowly, and then, without warning, chase after you at high speed. You'll get hurt if they so much as come into contact with you, so be on your guard. As ghosts, they're immune to direct attacks. The only way to defeat them is to hit them with projectiles or items.


  • If Gastly is hit with Little Mac's KO Uppercut, the sound effect will still play despite Gastly taking no damage.
