Gengar is a dual Ghost/Poison type Pokemon introduced in Generation I. It is sometimes a Poison type and can be super effective against Fairy and Grass types. Gengar is a ghost type Pokemon, so it has no effect on any Normal type Pokemon. It has three weaknesses, on themselves, dark and psychic.

Gengar evolves from Haunter when traded. It is the final form of Gastly.

Once you play Pokemon Shuffle, you might have a little chance to catch Gengar; as it has only 2% of catch rate and adds 4% when you clear with less than one turn left. It can be played once you clear stage 124 of Castle Noapte. At the 135th stage of the game, Mega Gengar's stage can be cleared within 20 moves; the stage is filled in with all those Normal typed Eevees; but Eevee and Lucario don't do damage against a ghost.

Ben and Toad's Contest

Gengar first appeared on Ben and Toad's Contest during the sixth season visit to the Milwaukee Mile; known as the 2015 ABC Supply Wisconsin 250 by the BATC fans. Gengar didn't appear in the race until Lap 131, with a caution flag involving the Australian incident with the Costa Ricans. Gengar is one of the Pokemon to be named to the Honduran squad for the 2016 IndyCar Series season.
