My theory and understanding of the to topics are this:

  • Dragons are mythological creatures, so in order to defeat a mythical creature is another mythical creature.

  • A similar aspect goes with ghosts. Since ghosts are, in a sense, wandering spirits, they are invulnerable to physical damage. So that pesky question of how to harm a ghost? Vacuum cleaners? Nope, other ghosts.

So, in all aspects, it's sort of a fish eat fish relationship with ghosts and dragon types. Hope this helps.

maybe it was planned since gen 1 that the pokemon in the reverse world would be weak to its own attacks. (Giratina)
