Spiritomb is a purple Pokémon that is linked to a stone. Spiritomb, although not having a corporeal form, arises from a little rock known as the Odd Keystone. The rock has a trapezoidal form with two little spots on it. A crack runs down the center, breaking in two towards the bottom. Together with the two dots, the fracture looks to create a frowning face. The anticipated look of Spiritomb is an ethereal mix of swirling purple fog. Its face is situated in the fog and has green, crescent eyes that are linked to its jagged lips. Its pupils are spiral-shaped, and it is occasionally only seen with one. Green orbs with yellow cores swirl around its face.

Spiritomb is made by a traveler trapping 108 souls in an Odd Keystone owing to sins they perpetrated. Some of the spirits in Spiritomb are bad-tempered. Some Spiritomb may live for up to 500 years. With its evil intentions, the Pokémon casts curses. Spiritomb, as shown in the anime, may be just as vicious and destructive as the spirits it is made of. It will strike out at anybody without hesitation, frequently acting in haste in its desire of revenge. The anime also revealed that anybody possessed by one of Spiritomb’s spirits will begin to misbehave, and their visage would ultimately resemble Spiritomb. If one of these spirits is lost, Spiritomb will go on an unrestrained rampage until the spirit is found.
