Gourgeist (Japanese: パンプジン Pumpjin) is a dual-type Ghost/Grass Pokémon.

It evolves from Pumpkaboo when traded.

Gourgeist comes in four different variations: Small Size, Average Size, Large Size, and Super Size.

Biology

Gourgeist is a bipedal, pumpkin Pokémon. Its body is a black pumpkin, with two short stubby feet. There is a face carved into this pumpkin, having triangular eyes and a half-circle mouth, completed with a spike protruding from the top of the shape. Above this pumpkin is the head, being tall, slender and and orange in color. At the top of the head is the face, which has yellow eyes, and a small mouth with no nose present. The mouth has two sharp fangs, with an absence of other visible teeth. It is completed with its peach-colored hair, which down the sides develops limbs. The hair contains bangs which usually cover one eye. The top of its hair contains a crescent shape, which is peach-colored on the outside, and black on the inside. They come in many sizes, the smallest being no more than 2'04" or 0.7m, while the largest are 5'07", or 1.7m.

Gourgeist are malevolent Pokémon that catch their prey in their hairlike arms and take delight in their victims' suffering. On moonless nights, they are known to wander through town streets, singing an eerie song that curses its unfortunate listeners. It and its pre-evolution, Pumpkaboo, are the only known Pokémon that can learn Trick-or-Treat.

Trivia

  • A Super Size Gourgeist has a different cry from its other three forms, pitched lower than the cry shared by the other forms.
  • Because only Average Size Pumpkaboo can be found in the Friend Safari, only Average Size Gourgeist can have its Hidden Ability Insomnia.

Origin

Gourgeist appears to be based on both gourd and modern pumpkin Jack-o'-lanterns. Its multiple sizes may possibly be a reference to the variety of sizes pumpkins and gourds come in. Its upper body is based on the candles within Jack-o'-lanterns themselves, with the curl being its wick and its hair-like extensions its dripping wax.

Name origin

Gourgeist is a combination of gourd and geist.

Pumpjin is a combination of pumpkin and 神 shin (deity, spirit), 人 jin (man), or jinn.
