On his way to becoming a Pokémon Master, Ash has had a number of misadventures. Throughout the anime’s 25-year run, they’ve encountered new Pokémon to catch, trainers to battle, and numerous attempts by Team Rocket to kidnap others’ Pokémon to foil.
However, given that the show has seen its protagonists go through different circumstances, it’s no surprise that they’ve had brushes with horror throughout the years. This may entail visiting a strange new town or seeing ghost Pokémon such as Gengar and Haunter. All of these spooky adventures can now be found in one spot!
