There's only about 19 if you dont count the rotom types

Because ghosts don't exist.

OR DO THEY?

Probably because the first gen only had the Gastly line, I guess they're supposed to be rarer.

Same reason dragon types aren't as plentiful as bug or water types.

Gen I: Ghastly, Haunter, Gengar
Gen 2: Misdreavus
Gen 3: Sablyeye, Shuppet, Banette, Duskull, Dusclops, Edit: Shedninja
Gen 4: Drifloon, Drifblim, Spiritomb, Rotom, Mismagius, Froslass, Dusknoir, Giratina
Gen 5: Frillish, Jellicent, Golett, Golurk, Litwick, Lampent, Chandelure

Gens 1 and 2 really set them behind the other types. 3-5 did a decent job of introducing new ones, and 6 already has an intriguing one in the form of Honedge.

It is rather odd. Dragons are always commented on how "Extremely Rare" they are and yet Dragons have 31 I think? Not counting Arceus of course. And I think Ghosts clock in at like 27. I just guessed on those numbers btw I do know for fact however Dragon has more than Ghost. Which is a shame cause Ghost is my fav :(
One step closer to victory!

If you don't include the legendary dragons, they are still the rarest.

This gen seems to be giving ghosts some love, with a ghost/steel confirmed, and a rumored ghost/grass.

We need 60 ghosts in Kalos.
Or more.
I wouldn't mind if they make one region based on Transylvania and make every single one of them part ghost.
I would buy every version of the game, not just in english and japanese but in every single language and play the hell out of them.
