Gourgeist Headcanons

For @rosamiibo. Thanks for the request!

  • Old legends state that a pumpkaboo evolves when the spirit trapped inside it loses all recollection of its past life. Pumpkaboos often become confused and undergo personality changes prior to evolution, and display aimless, bemused behaviours after becoming gourgeists. Some say this is due to their loss of memories. Modern research contradicts this, however, as it suggests that ghost-types are not deceased spirits at all, but a very ancient form of life.             
  • The singing of a gourgeist is a common motif in cheap horror films. 
  • Gourgeist contests are held locally in Laverre every year. People enter their pokémon to be judged on size, colour, smoothness and glow, but the results are often a product of bias. 
  • The part of a gourgeist’s body that resembles a pumpkin is tough and does not contain any pain receptors, hence why the species is renowned for its defensive abilities. Its clumped hair, however, is incredibly sensitive, so pokémon will resort to simply pulling it in order to gain victory over them.      
  • Gourgeist are at high risk of developing fungal infections and rot, so must be fed precautionary medicines twice a week. Because the bulk of a gourgeist’s body does not contain any pain receptors, they tend not to notice infections before they have reached an advanced stage, hence why they must be medicated even when healthy. 
  • A singing gourgeist is a hostile one, even though it may not sound that way. They show affection by glowing brighter and making no sound at all.
  • A contemporary myth states that those who dare to fall asleep to the sound of a gourgeist’s lullaby will become trapped in a pumpkin themselves, eventually to become one of them. It is particularly popular among children and young teens (much like the Bloody Mary story is in our world), who will sometimes play gourgeist song at sleepovers to test out the legend, usually chickening out and turning it off before they get anywhere close to slumber. Needless to say, there is no truth to it. 
  • Although gourgeist and pumpkaboos resemble pumpkins, the biological structure of their flesh is nothing like that of the vegetable.
  • The tradition of carving pumpkins originated in Laverre and came about as a way of warding off gourgeist. Those who lived in the outskirts of the city would carve smiling faces into pumpkins and place them at the front of their houses on the night of a new moon. Then, when legions of gourgeist came wandering and chanting through the streets, they would be tricked into thinking that one of their kind had already laid claim to the souls in the house, and was standing guard outside having claimed it as their territory. Again, this is a mythical tradition, and has little basis in fact.
