Hagatha and Nagatha
Hagatha lives in the middle of a forest that is believed to be haunted. To help people traveling through the forest, she rents Hoothoot to help guide them past the Gastly, Haunter and Gengar, using Foresight. Nagatha lives at the edge of a haunted forest. She is responsible for collecting Hoothoot that her sister Hagatha rents to traveling Trainers trying to get through the forest.
Ash and his friends were lost in the forest and were being chased by illusions, although they were briefly saved by Gary and his rented Hoothoot. Later, they ran into Hagatha, who Brock believed must be an illusion because nothing so ugly could be real. Hagatha screamed at Brock and Ash and terrified them, before she rented them a restless Hoothoot who had never guided a person through the forest before.
Once through the forest, Ash and his friends met up with Nagatha, thinking she was her sister. Nagatha then said that she is much better looking than her sister, despite the fact they are identical. The only way to tell the two sisters apart is by their headbands: Nagatha's is white, while Hagatha's is red.

One appeared under the ownership of Gary where Ash and his friends were scared by hallowed trees, but Hoothoot turned everything back to normal with Foresight. Out of nowhere another one appears next to Misty, the group follow it until they come to some sort of ruins then its Trainer, Hagatha. It is revealed she only has one left and it has never guided a Trainer through the forest safely, but the group decide to use it.
Suddenly blue fireballs appears around the group, they run away and Misty starts to become more fond of it.

In the end, Ash convinces it to help and it helps Misty out of an illusion of Bug Pokémon which are revealed to be a number of Haunter and Gengar, with the help of Ash's Pokémon they are able to send them scurrying. In the end Hoothoot is returned to Nagatha.
