The Poltergust 5000 is a kind of vacuum that was created by Professor Elvin Gadd and Doctor Rocko William to give to Luigi for him to catch ghosts. It is the upgraded version of the Poltergust 3000 and it first appeared in Luigi's Mansion 2. It makes appearances in the later games, where its recent appearance was in Luigi's Mansion 6: U Are Doomed!!.
Features and AbilitiesEdit
Since the Poltergust 5000 is an upgraded version of the Poltergust 3000, it is more improved than the Poltergust 3000. It has a stronger pull than the Poltergust 3000 and it can deplete the health meter of a ghost in a much faster way. Its appearance is the same as the Poltergust 3000. Like the Poltergust 3000, Luigi can shoot fire, water, and ice elementals with the Poltergust 5000 to weaken different types of ghosts.
In Luigi's Mansion 4: Haunted Dreams, Luigi's Mansion 5: Curse of the Mansion, and Luigi's Mansion 6: U Are Doomed!!, the Poltergust 5000 is able to suck up enemies other than ghosts (i.e. Goombas). The Poltergust 5000 can even be used underwater. Also, in Haunted Dreams and U Are Doomed!!, Luigi can use the Poltergust 5000 underwater to collect coins and Ghost Combs, while in Curse of the Mansion, this feature was removed. In U Are Doomed!!, Luigi can also use the Poltergust 5000 as Flying Luigi to collect coins and Ghost Combs. This can be done on any surface.
