Trainers will notice that Gengar turns into a giant mouth when he enters his Gigantamax form. According to the Pokedex entry for this new version of the ghost character, Gengar's mouth becomes a portal to the afterlife in this form and that you can hear the voices of your loved ones coming from this portal when listening carefully.
