Pikachu isn't actually a mouse, it is mouse-like.
Still to the original topic, yeah that stuff was in Special, and ghosts were in the games (and Anime? Wasn't there a ghost pokemon in the first series?), so it's plausible.
No, because Pokemon is rated E.
I have a question that is kind of in the subject of this forum. Ok in the games it says that pokemon can die. So all pokemon can die right? What about Gastly can he die? Is he the result of a dead pokemon? I mean how can a pokemon be born dead??
Of course there are poke zombies... the thing is they just exist in the movies from the Pokemon world.
IMO the writers would never include rotting flesh in a children`s show...
I doubt they would ever include zombies, more ghosts liek cubones mother is possible i guess but only if they had a story line that required it, like how you needed the silph scope origionally.
Cubone's mother. And pretty much everything Pokemon Tower related. Seriously, do you guys forget this? There is death and ghosts covered in the first game for cripes sake. And ghost Pokemon are indeed ghosts...OF Pokemon. It's right there. You're told this many times in red/blue.
Also, just because it makes me giggle:
Since Cubone's mother didn't became a haunter/Gengar, but instead remained a Marowak, it's obvious that Ghost Pokémon are not ghosts of Pokémon. I don't see why other dead Pokémon should become Ghost-type Pokémon. So your "indeed" point fails bad.
Ghost type Pokémon =/= Ghosts of dead Pokémon
On the Cloyster-Gastly thing, I noticed their resemblande since the begining. But that is only artwork-wise. Cloyster's supposed to look all black because its interiors can't be seen due to the darkness formed by its shell, why Gastly looks like that because that's the representation of gas, as it's made out of gas. It's like saying Plusle and Minun are Pikachu's little brothers just because they resemble it.

I'm gonna go ahead and say, yeah. Ghost Pokemon ARE ghosts, but now that I give it thought, they may not be ghosts of Pokemon. We know at least one exists, though. Cubone's mother and all. The ghost Pokemon are probably based on several types of yokai and other monsters.
We know death exists at very least, too.
And the Cloyster = Gastly thing was a joke. I said it made me giggle.
1. Giratina not hell god. Is only living thing in negative attachment of Pokeverse. That is like saying Kim jong Il is a god of land.
2.ghost-types screw death, others die. Solved.
