Since nobody else mentioned it, I just thought I'd bring up how that Picture of Acerola and Mimikyu on the right is ADORABLE! ^^

I got it off of that E-shuushuu website, BTW.
(And no, I'm NOT going to stop promoting E-shuushuu every chance I get, lol!)

Lol! I just now noticed I said it was on the right, when it's actually on the left!

The one on the right is just a Picture of a Hex Maniac that I took during a Contest in Ω Ruby.

Lol, thanks!

BTW, not sure if you read (the 1 Chapter of) my Short Story, "Master of Death" or not, but if Helena was a Pokémon Trainer, she'd have a Team along the lines of the following:

Mega Gengar
Gourgeist (because she was born on Halloween)

A mostly Ghost-type Team, with Hydreigon being the only non-Ghost member.
(Because she likes Dark Dragons, like Necrofyrmythyr.)

My favorite ghost is Shedinja

Yeah, Shedinja IS a very cool Pokémon.

Shedinja has many weaknesses, and is among the easiest of all Pokémon to take out, HOWEVER, IF you are not prepared for it, or end up in a bad situation, where you have nothing that can take it out, it's basically Invincible.

Personally, although there are tricks you can use (like that Sturdy Shedinja thing), IMO, the best way to use a Shedinja is as is, holding either a Safety Goggles, a Focus Sash, or a Focus Band, although certain offensive items work well, too, such as a Metronome.

Well, if you have fixed damage moves, like Night Shade, or Dragon Rage, those work well.
(As long as you know the HP of the Pokémon you're trying to catch.)

Also, a Smeargle that knows both Foresight, and False Swipe works well.

Most are just rare.

It DOES vary depending upon where you are, and what Ghost you're after, however.

I don't remember in X, but as an example, in a place called the Old Chateau (I believe I spelled that right) in Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, pretty much the only thing you can catch is Gastly, and there's usually some place like that in each Game, where certain Ghosts are VERY common.
(Most Ghost-types are still rare, however.)

One thing I wanted to include (but couldn't, due to the text limit) was a section on the Move "Trick-or-Treat".

It's exclusive to Gourgeist, and it makes it's target part Ghost-type, which can be quite useful, as Ghost-type Moves are Super Effective against Ghost-types.
(Similar to Dragon-types.)

Additionally, if used as a Z-Move, it increases the user's Stats (Attack, Defense, Sp. Attack, Sp. Defense, and Speed), making it an EXTREMELY POWERFUL Move.

Also, Trick Room is good for slower Ghosts.
(I'll probably write a blog just about using Trick Room, BTW.)
