Jinji the Gengar

Welcome to my humble abode…

If you have spent any time around the Pokémon World Online fan-MMO or its community, the name Jinji the Gengar is likely to be extremely familiar to you. Originally the persona of one of the Admin, Jinji has since taken on a life of his own as a mischievous, fun-loving Gengar who enjoys playing pranks, having laughs and haunting with his Ghostly brethren; and who is often childish, but knows when to take things seriously as well.

This site serves as the new online home for Jinji the Gengar; where he and his human handler (not Trainer – Jinji will never be tamed!) will host all the artwork designed for or with him over the years; publish new stories; and expand on the comic universe of Jinji and his many friends – both Ghost and non-Ghost – with new character descriptions, explanations of his canon, and an in-depth look into the many concepts and headcanons that make up the Realm of the Ghosts.

Latest Site Updates

I’ve given the Miscellaneous Art section a small update to add credits for each work listed on the page; and to add another new drawing to the index, following a recent gift from xxlPanda on DeviantArt. In addition, the page is now divided into two sections: “Canon”, for works that form part of Jinji’s official story or depictions; and “non-canon”, for non-storyline randomness 😉

New characters, new content and site layout revamps!

Introducing two new characters! With the recent publication of a work-in-progress preview of my next side-story, I feel it’s time to finally introduce two new characters to the Jinji universe – Phantisserie the Haunter, and Alessandro the Rotom. Both now have profiles on my (newly revamped) “Character Profiles” page, bringing the total number of named […]

Character Profile: Alessandro

A young Rotom with an energetic, carefree attitude and endless natural curiosity. Alessandro provides the mansion with a source of electricity for the precious few electronics that exist through the mansion. While he tries to be a good soul and help out the other Ghosts as much as he can, his excitability often gets the […]

Character Profile: Phantisserie

A female Haunter who, in her former life, was an artisan baker from France. Passionate and talented in her craft, she was often overlooked and put down by rival – particularly male – bakers; and encountered many obstacles in her quest to make a mark as a professional – thankfully, she was a very determined […]

Jinji’s Fossilween Tale

In 2016, the fan-made MMO Pokémon World Online hosted its most famous Halloween event, Fossilween, where players were taken through time in a Pokémon-themed take of the history of Earth, solving problems along the way in a bid to stop a mysterious Pokémon destabilising the passage of time itself. Interestingly, Jinji the Gengar made a […]

The Revenge of Witch Espurr

It all started so innocently… One day, a Ghost Hunter was investigating a haunted mansion. After a series of paranormal activities, starting with disembodied voices and mists and ending with an actual sighting, the Hunter decides the location is worthy of further investigation; and decides to go get his partner, a young woman called Charlotte. […]

Character Profile: Gaspar

The soul of a middle-aged human originally named Jasper, who once explored mountains before being killed in an avalanche. Now resurrected as a Gastly, Gaspar is one of the youngest Ghosts currently in the care of Jinji; and is still getting to grips with his new form. As a result, he is full of curiosity […]

Character Profile: Jinji

Basic Details Many people assume that Ghosts are spirits of the deceased; that there is not a Ghost without there first being a living being. Some extend this belief to Pokémon, believing that Ghost Pokémon are born when living Pokémon die. While this is sometimes true, it is not always the case – some Ghost […]
