Is Alola the Ghost region?


Guys, why are there so many new Ghost types in Alola.
(Dancing bird ghost, archery bird ghost, sandcastle ghosts (x2), and cosplay fairy ghost.)

We usually only get, like, one or two new ghosts per region. (Counting full evolutionary lines as one “type”.) I love ghost Pokemon with all my soul. I really, really do. But seeing so many of them in this region, before the game or ‘dex are even released, is making me wonder…

What did the Alola region do. Why are spirits sticking around? Why are so many of them based on deception and disguises? What kind of HISTORY must this place really have?

When Henry was 3 and had the chicken pox Regina put on a puppet show for him, hiding behind the couch so he doesn’t see her. Throughout the show Regina gets into it and is changing her voice and being all enthusiastic. She doesn’t hear Henry get up until she sees him peeking around the couch smiling at her. 

“Oh no! We’ve been caught!” Regina says to the alligator puppet on her hand. 

“Mommy you’re funny.”   


You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;

You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil;

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
if you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;

Or perhaps in Slytherin
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends.

Headcanon-ish: Regina had to have the driveway re-done when Henry was about 4. Henry asked if they could put their hand-prints in the cement and, after a lot of begging, Regina agreed. They counted to 3 to put there hands in but Henry stopped at the last second and waited for Regina to pull her hand out. Confused, she watched as he put his hand print in her hand print. When she asked why he said so that it was like he was always holding his mommy's hand.
