6 Strange and Creepy Pokedex Entries
Just in case anyone forgot Pokemon is full of nightmare fuel.
WAIT WHAT ABOUT THAT LAST ONE WITH KADABRA I DON’T REMMBER READING THAT.
FireRed I think?
Don’t forget that in the original games, you could infer that Victreebel have been know to eat humans (they’re said to live deep in the jungle…but nobody has ever returned). A person licked by a Haunter will shake uncontrollably until they die because it steals their life force. Gothitelle cries when it learns its trainer’s lifespan. Heatmor MELTS Durant to consume them—using its tongue it melts through their shells and eats their insides.
There is some very unsettling stuff in Pokemon. And that’s not even getting into the tragic events/side events presented in the games.
Also, friendly reminder that people eat Pokémon! Basculin’s entry specifically states that they’re remarkably tasty—no indication that its not humans who find them yummy.
And let’s not forget this cutie
Was once a human.
It’s pokedex entry reads:
Each of them carries a mask that used to be its face when it was human. Sometimes they look at it and cry.
These Pokémon arose from the spirits of people interred in graves in past ages. Each retains memories of its former life.
IT IS WELL AWARE THAT IT IS NO LONGER HUMAN.
YOU ARE USING A FORMERLY HUMAN CREATURE TO BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF YOUR FRIEND’S PETS.
How did it get that way you ask?
Why, by being birthed by it’s evolved form, of course! Which, by the way, looks like this:
and whose pokedex entry reads (depending on your version) :
It has been said that they swallow those who get too close and turn them into mummies. They like to eat gold nuggets.
They pretend to be elaborate coffins to teach lessons to grave robbers. Their bodies are covered in pure gold.
IT EATS ANYONE STUPID ENOUGH TO GET CLOSE TO IT.
And let’s not forget about these fuckers:
One of it’s earliest pokedex entires reads:
It attacks in a stealthy manner, without warning. It’s sharp fangs are used to bite and suck blood.
which isn’t so bad except—
Once it strikes, it will not stop draining energy from the victim even if it gets too heavy to fly.
It loves the blood of both humans and Pokemon. It flies around at night in search of neck veins.
Do you know what this means? THIS THING GORGES ITSELF ON HUMANS AND POKEMON. ALSO, IT’S FANGS ARE SHARP ENOUGH TO PIERCE SOME PRETTY THICK HIDES.
Litwick shines a light that absorbs the life energy of people and Pokémon, which becomes the fuel that it burns.
While shining a light and pretending to be a guide, it leeches off the life force of any who follow it.
not to bad right?
This ominous Pokémon is feared. Through cities it wanders, searching for the spirits of the fallen.
It arrives near the moment of death and steals spirit from the body.
The spirits it absorbs fuel its baleful fire. It hangs around hospitals waiting for people to pass on.
It absorbs a spirit, which it then burns. By waving the flames on its arms, it puts its foes into a hypnotic trance.
Being consumed in Chandelure’s flame burns up the spirit, leaving the body behind.
The spirits burned up in its ominous flame lose their way and wander this world forever.
Apologies for the length of this post, but I do always enjoy pointing out the creepy stuff in Pokemon.
