So Gengar is supposedly Clefable’s shadow, right?
Just a thought
Spritzee and Aromatisse already represent death in a way anyway. Their faces resemble medieval masks that people who dealt with those afflicted with a plague disease wore. Right? Something like that.
Yeah, Spritzee and Aromatisse are pretty clearly based on the Medieval plague doctors:
Back in those days, people believed that disease could be caused by bad smells, so the “beaks” on those masks were stuffed with aromatic herbs to protect the wearer while they were treating plague victims, sort of like an early attempt at a gas mask. That’s probably why Spritzee’s gimmick is based around sweet smells.
