Morty's Gengar (Japanese: マツバのゲンガー Matsuba's Gangar) is Morty's main Pokémon in the games, anime, and manga. It is always seen outside of its Poké Ball.

In the anime

Gengar and Morty

Gengar first appeared in A Ghost of a Chance in the Burned Tower, which Ash and his friends mistook for the Ecruteak Gym. When Pikachu and Togepi disappeared in a small hole of the Burned Tower, Morty had Gengar round up the Gastly and Haunter living at the tower in order to find the two.

When Team Rocket ran off with Pikachu and Togepi, Gengar appeared and tripped them with Lick. Gengar then gave chase to Team Rocket. After it knocked Pikachu and Togepi out of Team Rocket's grasp, the trio sent out their Arbok and Weezing to battle Gengar. However they were easily defeated by Gengar's powerful Shadow Ball.

In From Ghost to Ghost, Gengar demonstrated to a group of Trainers in the Ecruteak Gym its Confuse Ray attack. During the Gym battle with Ash, Morty sent Gengar out as his last Pokémon. Ash's Noctowl began with Confusion, which Gengar countered with Shadow Ball, which caused an explosion. Gengar used the opportunity to become invisible. Gengar then attacked Noctowl with Night Shade, demonstrating its ability to attack even when invisible. When Ash told Noctowl to use Confusion on the whole building, Gengar was revealed. With Gengar visible again, Noctowl used Foresight to identify Gengar and finished it off with Tackle, defeating Morty and earning Ash the Fog Badge.

Gengar reappeared in a flashback in All That Glitters!, when Ash was recalling the time he received the first four badges of Johto.

In For Ho-Oh the Bells Toll!, Morty instructed Gengar to find the stolen Crystal Bells. When Ecruteak City was under attack by angry Bug-type Pokémon and Gligar, Morty had Gengar use Confuse Ray on the Parasect.

Gengar reappeared in another flashback in Bagged Then Tagged! alongside Whitney's Miltank.

Personality and characteristics

Gengar is usually outside of its Poké Ball and hiding in the shadows, though appears when needed. It has mischievous nature and enjoys pranking people, especially those who enter the Burned Tower. Though Gengar has been shown to be helpful especially with cases with Pokémon or items stolen by Team Rocket.It has the ability to become invisible and reappear before its opponent notices. However, Ash overcame this by having his Noctowl use Confusion on the whole gym.
