Flavor Text
SunShould you feel yourself attacked by a sudden chill, it is evidence of an approaching Gengar. There is no escaping it. Give up.
MoonIt apparently wishes for a traveling companion. Since it was once human itself, it tries to create one by taking the lives of other humans.
Ultra SunYou can hear tales told all over the world about how Gengar will pay a visit to children who are naughty.
Ultra MoonEven your home isn’t safe. Gengar will lurk in whatever dark corner of a room it can find and wait for its chance to catch its prey.
SunGengar’s relationships are warped. It has no interest in opponents unless it perceives them as prey.
MoonThe energy of Mega Evolution awakened it. It sinks into another dimension, where it keeps a patient watch for its chance to attack.
Ultra SunIt tries to take the lives of anyone and everyone. It will even try to curse the Trainer who is its master!
Ultra MoonMega Evolution has made it possible for Gengar to access other dimensions. Its entire body is brimming with strange power.
