Sabrina's Haunter (Japanese: ナツメのゴースト Natsume's Ghost) was a Pokémon briefly in Ash's possession. Because Ash didn't formally capture this Pokémon in a Poké Ball, many fans don't consider it to be his Pokémon.


Ash, Pikachu and Haunter
Ash decides to challenge the Gym Leader, Sabrina in Saffron City, unaware of what happened to many of the challengers that lost to her. A man tries to dissuade him from challenging her, but Ash does not listen, intent on getting another badge.

Her Abra evolves into a Kadabra during the battle, defeating Ash's Pikachu easily.

Sabrina uses her psychic powers to turn Ash and his friends into miniature versions of themselves before they are rescued by the man who warned them about Sabrina's powers earlier and turns out to be her father. Sabrina's psychic powers far outclass her father's, leading him to have no control over her anymore. She had turned into two people - her old, fun-loving self and a cold-hearted Trainer with a thirst for power. Her evil self had locked away her soul.

Sabrina's father tells Ash that Ghost Pokémon would probably be able to defeat her Psychic minions and suggests going to the Pokémon Tower to find Gastly, Haunter and Gengar. Ash finds all three of them, but does not capture them. A Haunter that he befriended follows him back to Saffron, but when Ash is ready to fight, it disappears.

When Ash finds it, it disappears once again. Regardless, Pikachu asks to battle Sabrina, but again, Ash's defeat is imminent. However, Haunter suddenly returns, making faces at Sabrina. Sabrina finally laughs for the first time in years, making the connection to her old self again. She is immobilized by laughter at the Haunter's faces, and her Kadabra, who is psychically linked with her, is immobilized as well and Ash and Haunter win the Marsh Badge.

Haunter decided to stay behind with Sabrina at the Saffron Gym.
