Phantump is a ghostly Pokémon with the form of a tree stump. It has a wispy black body with nubby arms. A little, brown tree stump with a wavy branch on either side covers its head. Its crimson eyes can be seen through two holes in the stump, and its mouth is apparent on the stump itself. Each branch has two little, green leaves towards the tip. Brewing these leaves may result in a healing drink.

Phantump is formed when a ghost takes possession of a tree stump; the spirit is thought to be that of a youngster who fell lost in the forest and died. This Pokémon’s cries sound like a child’s voice or creepy screams. People have gotten disoriented as a result of the voice, but Phantump is seeking to make new acquaintances.

The only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Forest’s Curse are Phantump and its evolved form Trevenant.
