But what about that Jenny's Ghastly in the Evil!Pikachu episode?

It's just the Internet. Calm down.
I guess they can die. I mean, they have a soul right? So....they can die ;]
I had a theory of how normal (not the type) Pokemon and humans die, and depending on the circumstances of the death would turn into a ghost Pokemon. Basically it was a sort of limbo for them, a transition stage, and will eventually pass. I'll try looking for it.
Weren't they inside their Pokeball? If so then they were probably in a state of suspended animation.
EDIT: Found my theory on Pokemon dyiong turning into ghost Pokemon
L's theory on Pokemon turning into ghosts
They still die, or pass on to the afterlife in the case of the dead pokemon/people turning into ghosts. Not everyone turns into ghost Pokemon though....

^^^^Ninetales is suppose to live a long time too, that was a living one just made to act like a 9-tailed fox legend.
lol, well I think the only way another pokemon gets turned into a ghost pokemon is with reincarnation. I'm sure ghost pokemon are just pokemon that can live a very long time. There have been words about death, and actual spirits of pokemon. I think pokemon turning into ghost pokemon is kind of a legend thing, like how some people thought Groundon and Kyorge created the world and such.
Ghost pokemon do die, with the simple explanation that they're living. Sure they can be considered "undead" or "mystical" and they possess simple ghostly qualities, but they still possess normal qualities of a living pokemon (breeding, obeying a trainer, being able to attack, being able to contain itself in a Pokeball).
I believe when a pokemon dies, they don't turn into ghosts, but rather spirits. Cubone's mother from R/B/Y/G/FR/LG had it's soul raging into the 2nd-to-the-last floor of Lavender Tower, and it gets identified through the silph scope. After you faint it, though, it's soul "departs to the afterlife". That means their spirits are a far different life-force other than just Gastly and Gengar, and any other Ghost-type pokemon.

I think that pokemon go through two incarnations:
when that pokemon dies, its body is buried its spirit becomes a ghost pokemon becomes a ghost pokemon(which one or whether this part happens at all depends on what the pokemon is and how it died)
Ghost(a ghost pokemon)
When this incarnation is destroyed, its physical form dissipates into mist and its conciousness(the only part left of it) gos to wherever dead people go as well.
Contrary to what you may believe 007, the world is not filled with mad-men who can hollow out volcanoes, stock them with big breasted women, and threaten the world with nuclear annihilation.

If we're all pretty much agreed that ghost pokemon are living, then why, in the pokedex entry for Drifloon, in Diamond, this:
It's most likely a legend.A Pokémon formed by the spirits of people and Pokémon.
Also, why, in R/G/B/Y and FR/LG do you need to use the Silph Scope to see the ghosts, but in every other game, you don't?
the same thing happened in R/S/E, when you need to find a scope of some sort to see Kecleon. they did that for the same reason.

Ghost Pokemon from eggs... they just the same as other Pokemon. Maybe they don't die of old age, if age affects anything in the Pokemon world
