Level in the wild

What level does this pokémon appear in the wild at? I seen to be unable to find this information anywhere. (Of course, I might have just not looked hard enough...) --[[User:Tatrion|Tatrion]

It appears at the Hallowed Tower after talking to 32 people underground at level 25 (See entry for Hallowed Tower.) Yugiohguy1 16:29, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Two things Spiritomb and Sableye have in common

Having weaknesses to no type is one of the things Spiritomb and Sableye have in common. Another thing Spiritomb and Sableye have in common is that they are both Dual Dark and Ghost types. FREAKAZOID

That's the reason for their lack of weaknesses. --FabuVinny T-C-S 22:56, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Jeez... People. Spiritomb/Sableye does have a weakness. To fighting, use foresight to hit ghosts with fighting, and hit it. Its supereffective.

Naturally, it doesn't. After using Miracle Eye and Foresight doesn't count, because they aren't automatic. TTEchidna 03:12, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

what about Kangaskhan and Miltank's "Scrappy" ability? doesn't that account for anything?

They're the only Pokémon that have no PERMANENT weakness to any type. Abilities like Scrappy and moves like Foresight are only TEMPORARY ways of giving them a weakness; without resorting to those moves/Abilities, they have no weakness. Diachronos 17:05, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Eggs Moves

Should we add about that Spiritomb can learn Shadow Ball from breeding??? Since I breed the Spiritomb with my Misdreavus. And It have Shadow Ball and Pain Split as it egg moves. chungkingpun 13:55, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

It got Shadow Ball because Spiritomb can learn it from a TM, not because it's an Egg Move. Master Lucario


So, I was doing some breeding and I bred my Drifblim and my Spiritomb and when Spiritomb came out of the egg, it had Fly as a move, along with Shadow Ball, Confuse Ray, and Ominous Wind. Even after that, I hatched more Spiritomb eggs and they all had Fly as a move. Drifblim was the father and knew Fly, along with Shadow Ball and Ominous Wind. Spiritomb of course was the mother, with Shadow Ball, Ominous Wind, Silver Wind, and Dark Pulse. Does anyone know why? --PsychicRider 03:02, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

That's odd...I've never seen that before. --Chocolate 01:32, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
I don't have Wi-fi or that stuff to trade to someone for proof. But one of their detail screens has this information: a Timid Nature, Mischievous characteristic, Fly, Shadow Ball, Confuse Ray, and Ominous Wind, egg received August 30, hatched August 31st, female, hatched at Lv 1 at Solaceon Town. I don't have an Action Replay or Gameshark so I know it wasn't a move modifier. --PsychicRider 01:36, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
I'll try that myself and see what happens. --Chocolate 21:14, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
I have tried it. Oddly enough, it works. Maybe someone should add it. But i think someone else should check, just to be on the safe side. SpecialK Leiks Lucario and The Celebi Glitch 17:07, 2 January 2010 (UTC)


It varies from person to person, but I know some hardcore Pokémon fans who claim that rare 'semi-Legendaries' like Lucario and Rotom should be given some special classification. Has this ever been a consideration (I'm neutral on the issue itself)? LordArceus

Hmmm... i have seen it happen before. Maybe a page called "Pseudo-Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon" would work. I'll ask Turtwig A. He'll know. SpecialK Leiks Lucario and The Celebi Glitch 17:11, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
I know nothing about it. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 17:40, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
No. They're not even semi-legendary. And it doesn't matter if they're hardcore fans. Some people would consider Charizard, or anybody else that has a good sweep, as a semi-legendary. Lucario definitely isn't, seeing as how common it and Riolu are, Rotom is just rare, and Spiritomb is the same situation as Rotom. No need for a page. That's like saying that Feebas and Milotic are semi-legendary because of how hard they are to find. R.A. Hunter Blade 19:00, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Its possible origin

It might base on one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature, Water Margin (traditional Chinese: 水滸傳; simplified Chinese: 水浒传; pinyin: Shuǐhǔ Zhuàn) (also Outlaws of the Marsh, All Men Are Brothers or The Marshes of Mount Liang). Its opening episode is the release of the 108 spirits. For knowing more info, here is for you:

Sucker Punch?

I just noticed this, but how can it use that move when it has no apparent limbs?Morgil27 20:55, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

Look at the Japanese name... It has nothing to do with punching. It's just a figure of speech. --ケンジガール 20:57, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

108 and Legion

"In Pokémon Diamond, Spiritomb's entry states that it was formed from 108 spirits. Incidentally, Spiritomb's number in the Sinnoh Pokédex is 108, its Defense and Special Defense base values are 108, and it weighs exactly 108.0 kilograms." This bit of trivia makes it sound like it's all a coincidence, but that's highly unlikely. Does anyone else think this bit should be changed to reflect the obvious references here?

Also, I'm going to take down the part about the Legion demon being a possible inspiration for Legion, since I really doubt that Nintendo would intentionally make a Pokemon based on a demon, especially considering all the heat they get simply from perceived Satanism. --Dual 08:02, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

I fail to see your point about the Legion thing. Especially considering how it refers to itself as "We". IMO i don't think that should've been removed. Morgil27 08:44, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Odd piece of trivia

It's always been said that there's no such thing as an evil Pokémon - yet it is stated that Spiritomb was clearly cruel and evil, enough so to be sealed away. Any thoughts? I'd add it to the trivia section but (stating the obvious), it's protected. ^^; Lucadan (Talk) 15:37, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
