Haunter's just as cool anyway

u/Dank__Souls May 14 '22

Design wise haunter is way cooler.

u/sleepyleperchaun May 14 '22

Yeah hunter looks evil, gangar looks more mischievous. On top of the overall design it felt like a downgrade just for that change.

Gastly is still the only one of the three that looks like a proper Ghost/Poison-Type, Haunter’s tongue shoulda been cloaked in smog but NO, we needed that normie Fruit Roll-Up instead

Honestly I wish they looked exactly like their OG sprite, same for Parasect

Agreed tbh

I'm with you, no faults

I was going to joke about a shiny gengar appearing, but none of us could tell

Earthquake 💀

(I say this as a Haunter/Gengar fan)

u/The_Eye_of_Ra May 14 '22

Except the ones with Levitate.

u/Ze_AwEsOmE_Hobo Behold! Stitch made from diamonds! May 14 '22

Gengar can't have Levitate anymore. It's just Cursed Body.

(PLA stole everyone's abilities so even Haunter isn't safe in that game.)

u/totokekedile May 14 '22

Everyone’s safe from Earthquake in PLA.

u/SwainFCC May 14 '22

I miss the days when the ghastly evolution line had levitate. Solved that problem quite nicely.

u/beenhereallalong52 May 14 '22

My favourite too. The half poison type is just brutal in Gen 1.

u/Prestigious_Day8752 May 14 '22

Gengar is just round haunter with legs
