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

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 ghostly Pokémon that has four sizes: Small, Average, Large, and Super Size. Encasing its lower body is a pinkish pumpkin with a pair of nubby legs. Carved into the pumpkin is a pair of circular holes that glow yellow-orange. Pumpkaboo's shadowy black body pokes out of the top of the pumpkin. It has glowing yellow eyes, a pair of fangs in its upper jaw, and pointed ears that curve slightly. On top of its head is a long tuft of fur that curls tightly at the tip. A collar of furry-looking tufts hangs over the edge of the pumpkin.

Pumpkaboo becomes active after dark. The holes in its body can glow and illuminate the way for travelers in the dark. It is said that it also carries wandering spirits to the afterlife. However, its own spirit is trapped in this world. Pumpkaboo and its evolution Gourgeist are the only known Pokémon that can learn Trick-or-Treat.

Trivia

  • A Super Size Pumpkaboo has a different cry from its other three forms, which is pitched lower.
  • Only Average Size and Super Size Pumpkaboo can have its Hidden Ability Insomnia. Average Size can be obtained with its Hidden Ability from the Friend Safari; Super Size can be obtained with its Hidden Ability as the Spooky 2014 Super Size Pumpkaboo.

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 お化け obake (ghost) and 南瓜 kabocha (pumpkin).
