Of the original 151 first gen Pokémon, few are as well-loved as Gengar.

And it comes as no surprise! With a wicked grin, menacing red eyes, and a spiky purple body, Gengar seems to have found the middle ground between cute and badass.

This Ghost/Poison Pokémon is so cool that it actually lowers the temperature in the surrounding area. Talk about chill.

Whether you’re a fan of the shady Pokémon yourself, or just happen to know someone who can’t get enough of it, we hope this little Gengar gift guide will help you find what you’re looking for. Get ready for Gengar’s charm to possess you!

Gengar Shadow Ball Figure

Shadow Ball is one of Gengar’s classic signature moves. It’s also among the most powerful ghost attacks.

So it only seems appropriate that one of the most amazing Gengar figures from Pokémon Center features the ghostly creature hurling a shadowy blob of ectoplasm at its rival.

This line of figures focuses on Pokémon using their most well-known moves, with great attention to detail and a masterful hand-painted finish. The amazing base, vivid colors, and perfect expression on Gengar’s face make this piece ideal for displaying along with the rest of your Pokémon collection—but also strong enough to stand on its own as a decoration in any space.

This is so swell you might be better off just keeping the thing for yourself as a sort of geek trophy. Or better yet, but yourself one and get a couple others as gifts.
