How to Get Gengar in Pokemon Let’s Go
Gengar is a powerful Pokemon who torments its victims with a flurry of Ghost-type moves. Before you can get one, however, you’ll need to call up a friend first. Here’s how to get Gengar in Pokemon Let’s Go.
Unlike most of the other Pokemon in the game, you can’t get Gengar in the wild. Instead, you’ll have to find its pre-evolutions and work up from there. Gengar starts out as a Gastly, which will then evolve into a Haunter upon reaching a certain level.
Luckily, there are tons of Gastly and Haunter roaming through the Pokemon Tower at Lavender Town. During your first visit, however, you won’t be able to catch one right away. Instead, you’ll have to get the Silph Scope over at Celadon City.
After getting the gadget in Pokemon Let’s Go, you’ll be able to identify all of the floating spirits haunting the cemetery. When you have finally caught a Gastly, you can evolve it once it reaches level 25. Otherwise, you can outright evolve it into a Gengar if you’ve caught a Haunter.
To evolve a Haunter, you will need to trade it first. You can do this by either local and online connection by trading it for another ‘mon. Once the other person finally has the Haunter, the evolution process will start right away. Needless to say, but you will want to trade with a friend so you can actually get your Gengar back.
This is the only way to get a Gengar in Pokemon Let’s Go, so you need to make sure that you can actually trade with someone. If you don’t know anyone who has a copy of the game, you can try asking around gaming forums such as GameFAQs that provide boards where you can ask for help.
