Pumpkaboo (Japanese: バケッチャ Bakeccha) is a dual-type Ghost/Grass Pokémon.

It evolves into Gourgeist when traded.

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

Biology

Pumpkaboo is a bipedal Pokémon that resembles a pinkish pumpkin. It comes in four different sizes: small, average, large, and super sized. The pumpkin body has a pair of circular holes carved out of its rind that resemble eyes. The ghostly body that lives in the pumpkin is black with a pointy collar, yellowish eyes with no visible pupils, a pair of fangs, curved ears and a curled stem. According to the anime, Pumpkaboo can release light from the holes on its body, making it similar to a flashlight.

The spirit residing in the pumpkin is trapped in this world. Pumpkaboo can carry wandering spirits to where they belong, so they can move on. It and its evolution Gourgeist are the only known Pokémon that can learn Trick-or-Treat.

Trivia

  • Pumpkaboo's Super Size has a longer and deeper cry than its other three forms.
  • Pumpkaboo's Super Size is exactly 31 inches tall. Additionally, the last two digits of its weight are 31. Furthermore, the total weight of all Pumpkaboo sizes is 31 kg. These may be references to Halloween, which takes place on the 31st of October.

Origin

Pumpkaboo is based on a pumpkin, specifically the ones carved into Jack-o'-lanterns for Halloween. Pumpkins are also known for their variety of sizes, possibly contributing to the four sizes Pumpkaboo comes in. Considering its fangs, black upper body, and affiliation with Halloween, it may also be based on bats, which are also associated with the holiday.

Name origin

Pumpkaboo may be a combination of pumpkin and boo (a common word used to startle people) or peek-a-boo.

Bakeccha may be a combination of 化物 bakemono (monster or ghost) and 南瓜 kabocha (pumpkin).
