Phantoms terrorize Jamaa and all of its inhabitants to sustain the Phantom Dimension. The Phantom King wants all Phantoms to invade Jamaa, with the ultimate goal of merging Jamaa with the Phantom Dimension, in doing so will destroy Jamaa.

The Phantoms developed the Phantom Portal which allows travel between the Phantom Dimension and Jamaa. With this development, Phantoms have caused Phantom Rifts around Jamaa, stolen Alpha Relics and caused havoc around Jamaa. They are at war with Jammers and Alphas within Jamaa. Phantoms produce deadly electricity that harms Jammers, however, with the help of Paintseeds, Phantoms can be defeated.


Phantom Dimension

On November 4, 2018, Phantom Dimension was introduced and the Phantom King left messages for the Phantoms.

If you manage to enter the world of Jamaa, spread as much negativity and destruction as possible. That energy is what sustains our great dimension!
Do not fear: so long as Jamaa's animals don't know the secret code, they cannot enter the portal and cross into the Phantom Dimension
If a fellow Phantom is plotting to enter Jamaa and become an "adorable" Pet Phantom, report them immediately!
On the day when out Phantom portals open throughout Jamaa, we will invade and make Jamaa one with the Phantom Dimension!
See something? Scream something! Report all signs of weakness, uniqueness, and happiness to a Phantom Officer immediately!
If you encounter one of Jamaa's Alphas, DO NOT ENGAGE! They are fearless, legendary warriors, and they will make quick work of lone Phantoms.
Remember to maintain Phantom portals regularly. They are the fastest way for us to enter Jamaa.
Fellow Phantoms: our conquest for the destruction of Jamaa continues. Remember your mission and we cannot fail.
Should you see an animal of Jamaa alone, spin your tentacles to entrap them in a deep sleep!
