What is Gengar's real identity?

The first generation Pokemon game had only 151 Pokemon, but as of now, there are more than 700 Pokemon.

The most famous ghost Pokemon in the first generation games was none other than Gengar.

Gengar's evolution lineage is as follows:

Gastly ----->  Haunter ------> Gengar

The evolution process looks pretty normal, but there is one big question that arises regarding to this evolution process.

That question is about the weight of this Pokemon.

Gastly (1.3m/0.1kg) ----> Haunter (1.6m/0.1kg) ----> Gengar(1.5m/40.5kg)

As you can see, the Gengar's weight increases by a considerable amount when it evolves from Haunter. On the other hand, the height remains approximately the same.

If you give some thought to this mysterious weight change, then you will realize that this can be explained with one simple theory.

When Gengar evolves from Haunter, it takes control/ possesses another Pokemon. Yes, it's somewhat of a creepy theory.

You might be interested to know, who is the Pokemon of which Gengar takes control/possesses?

The answer is Clefable!

Clefable's height and weight are 1.3m/40.0kg. Resembles Gengar's height and weight, right?

There is one more thing that proves this theory. There are thorns like things on Gengar's back. You  can find the same thorns like things on Clefable's back.

It's quite scary theory, but it's the truth.
