If he lasts a year... how the hell did the gastly in ingdigo league survived a century..?

This was a quite creative explanation for gastly's various attributes. One question however, how does this bacterial gas cloud propulse itself?

Making Gastly a bacterial colony is an awesome idea but I think some kind of floating slimemode would be better, after all the strange little protests have the ability the act like one large organism of a sort, were as I haven't heard of any bacteria doing this.

This is a really interesting take on Gastly! I'm hoping once I get a job I'll be able to afford to buy the book so I can see how its evolutions work too. :)

Interesting. So, in this explanation, how do their mouths and eyes form?

now I'm wondering about Haunter and Gengar

Very interesting. This even helps justify the poison-typing. Though I wonder how this would apply to Haunter and Gengar since they've been established as living shadows (and the latter being stated to be an undead human in later games).

And how would these sketches be applied to other ghost-types, such as the ones stated to be undead humans like Yamask and Phantump?

That's an intriguing take on ghosts; they're just bacterial manifestations of the deceased host. :O

So, Gastly aren't ghosts, they're an animate Virus?

More like animate groups of bacteria. Viruses and bacteria are different things. :)
