Spirits that don’t have any path in this World are placed inside Pumpkaboo’s body and taken by Pumpkaboo to the afterlife. Small Pumpkaboo takes the spirits of children, and it’s said to be the product of the territory where few lost souls roam.
Large Pumpkaboo takes the spirits of Adults, and it’s said to be the product of the territory where many lost souls roam. Super-Sized Pumpkaboo takes the spirits of the people having the same superior proportions, and it’s said to be the product of the territory where a large amount of lost souls roam.
Apart from those, Pumpkaboo possesses three major abilities, Pickup, Frisk and Insomnia.
- Pickup allows it to pick the items that are left in the battle, these can either be the items of an ally or adversary.
- By using Frisk, Pumpkaboo can see the item held by the adversary.
- The last ability is a special one that may come handy, Insomnia is a hidden ability of Pumpkaboo, and by using it, this Pokemon can’t be put to sleep.
