A gas can be a good alternative to a solid or liquid to catch, store and transport radioactive ions, especially for short-living species and/or isotopes from refractory elements. A short overview of the evolution in gas catchers will be given. Then the different processes taking place in gas-catchers and influencing the overal behavior will be discussed. The contribution will end by a critical assessment of the role that gas catchers can play in the next generation of radioactive ion beam facilities.
