Under a full moon,
this POKéMON
likes to mimic
the shadows of
people and laugh
at their fright.
A GENGAR is close
by if you feel a
sudden chill.
It may be trying
to lay a curse
on you.
It steals heat
from its surround-
ings. If you feel
a sudden chill, it
is certain that a
GENGAR appeared.
To steal the life
of its target, it
slips into the
prey's shadow and
silently waits for
an opportunity.
Hiding in people's
shadows at night,
it absorbs their
heat. The chill it
causes makes the
victims shake.
