Gourgeist, the Pumpkin Pokemon, and the evolved form of Pumpkaboo. Singing in eerie voices, they wander town streets on the night of the new moon. Anyone who hears their song is cursed and it enwraps its prey in its hairlike arms.
He was named after Hugh Laurie, the actor who plays the brilliant Dr. Cockroach, PhD. of Monsters vs. Aliens and Dr. Gregory House, M.D. of House
I was just traveling around Route 16 when a freaking Shiny male Pumpkaboo suddenly appeared to me oAo I just stunned ;w; I recently traded him to get him to evolve and now he's my handsome Gourgeist ;A;
Hugh was a small size shiny Pumpkaboo when Ditto had stumbled upon him on her way to Laverre City. He was rather cocky and thought he could take on her powerful team, but was defeated rather quickly by Ditto's Talonflame, Tristan and was caught.
This had bruised his pride a considerable amount but accepted his fate rather quickly. However, in battle, he is known to act and attack without thought or waiting for Ditto to command him, which ends in his defeat quite a lot. Hugh also has the habit of pick-pocketing from Ditto, Charlie, and Walter due to his Ability.
Hugh is also known to be quite impatient and does not like to sit still, making him restless and obnoxious to most of the other Pokemon when they stop for the night or take breaks. This had carried on even after he evolved and he is also quite the hunk to the female ghost types. He take great pride in his hair curl, having a habit of flipping it a lot.
Hugh is currently at Level 51, has a Hasty Nature, and the Ability, Frisk, which allows him to check an opposing Pokemon's held item. His current moveset is: Razor Leaf, Seed Bomb, Shadow Ball, and Trick-or-Treat.

x3 I'm sure you'll find a shiny Pumpkaboo if you walk around route 16 long enough :3
Didn't expect it to be purple for its Shiny colours, definitely more bold than its normal peach shades
Been on a small Shiny hunt today myself, got a Croagunk from trying to find a Shiny Flabebe on Route 7, a Fletchling from my first try with the PokeRadar on Route 2 who is now a Fletchinder (thanks, EXP All) and a Clauncher from chain-fishing at Ambrette Town for half-an-hour; a new record in my books
I love that it's purple! It's my fave color <3
Congrats! That's impressive! I have a total of 7:
Riffin the Dragonair (male) won from a challenge on White 2
Arnett the Mienshao (male) Friend Safari encounter
Herbert the Leavanny (male) traded to me
Rarity the Ponyta (male) hatched from an egg
Zak the Mawile (male) hatched from an egg
Hugh the newly evolved Gourgeist (male) wild encounter
Elsa the Froslass (female) hatched from an egg
I wanna try for a Shiny Flygon next, green and blue are one of my favourite colour combinations, with a bit of orange thrown in
And Shiny Scolipede, too, red and cyan never looked so awesome together
My current count is 15 now
Sandslash, my very first wild Shiny ever from White 2
Dragonite from the White Treehollow challenge
Zappy the Raichu, my very first Masuda Method Shiny
Nyaran the Persian, whose Shiny colours are very faintly different than normal
Krimson the (non-Lake of Rage) Gyarados, bred purely coincidentally during the "Release the KHRP" event by Dookieshed and NateWantsToBattle
Lyre-Lyre the Chatot
Vennominon the Croagunk
Pre-XY release event Dialga, Palkia and Giratina
Gnasher the Haxorus, first Shiny caught in X as an Axew
Blazar the Fletchinder
Fabio the Furfrou
Crawbster the Clauncher
And Sonar the Noivern
I did have the Nature Preserve Haxorus, but I traded her in order to complete my National Dex and I missed an Electrode who used Explosion after it escaped my first-turn Quick Ball
Oh wow XDD That's a lot! Congrats on them all!!
I was looking for the Haxorus but I can never find it at the right time D: Aww that sucks
They look awesome! Can't wait to hatch some
I'm gonna be aiming to fill one box, it's gonna take some time
How do you mean? The Haxorus at the Nature Preserve is always Shiny
Electrodes, what're you gonna do?
I meant that anytime I go on the Preserve, I can never find the Haxourus no matter how many times I go to the area it's supposedly in.
True...they're tricky Pokemon
Hmm... have you been to it before and battled the Haxorus or did someone borrow your game?
I'm only clutching at straws, it SHOULD be right at the centre of the map, so unless you lent your game or you've already been there, it should still be there as an interactable sprite
