Welcome back, Trainers! In this installment of Generation Preparation we'll take a look at the Forbidden Pokémon, Spiritomb. Let's get into it!
CATEGORY: Forbidden Pokémon
TYPE: Ghost / Dark
HEIGHT: 3' 03"
WEIGHT: 238.1 lbs.
MAX CP: 1802
PLACE IN THE META: Spiritomb might be useful in Pokémon GO. It has a phenomenal typing that gives it very few weaknesses and an "immunity" to two of the most meta-relevant types. That, combined with its pretty decent defenses, could make it a decent Gym defender. But we don't see it getting any use beyond that, unfortunately. Spiritomb is a Dark- and Ghost-type. This makes it weak to Fairy-type attacks; resistant to Poison-type attacks; as well as "immune" to Psychic-, Fighting-, and Normal-type attacks.
