Disturbing Pokemon

    Despite the fact that Pokemon is a kid's game, there never fails to be a few somewhat disturbing instances in the game. We probably all remember Lavender Town, the Cubone's dead mother's ghost and the fact Cubone is wearing the skull of the aforementioned dead mother. That's just one disturbing instance, but...

    I was reading Yamask's Pokedex entries just a few minutes ago and I am actually pretty creeped out by then, which is saying something since I'm not usually creeped out by kid's stories. But the Pokedex states that Yamask is 'a spirit of a dead person, it retains memories of its last life, it carries a mask that used to be its face and it sometimes looks at it cries.' No need to explain why that's just a bit disturbing...

    But Yamask's design actually isn't very creepy, it's too cartoony, but I've actually been picturing it looking more realistic; a more realistic spirit from beyond the graves, a more realistic mask with a more realistic face, an actual dead person... I mean, can you imagine a Yamask with Michael Jackson's or Amy Winehouse's face as its mask?

    So anyhow... Discuss any other disturbing Pokemon or instances you might have come across.
  2. Lavender Town is the only thing that disturbs me in Pokemon and the whole thing about Cubone. And it's tune when you enter it to boot. Then theres the Ghost from Pokemon Creepy Black... don't get me started.

    The mysteries of nostalgic Kanto are the most disturbing, though I was a bit disturbed by the Rotom story at the Old Chateau.

    But pretty much all of the newer gens make me feel better about Pokemon and forget those nasty disturbances.

    Really, the very concept of ghost pokemon is kind of disturbing when you think about it.

    The tower in Pokemon Red/Blue/Leafgreen/Firered (I forgot the name of it) it's where gastly is, it's quite morbid.

    And also Mewtwo, I saw it in the Movie when it was out in 1999, I can't really shake off Mewtwo speaking.

    I found it kinda disturbing when my Rival in HG suddenly started undressing me while I tried to infiltrate Team Rocket in the Radio Tower

    Shedinja - "A discarded bug shell that came to life. Peering into the crack on its back is said to steal one's spirit."

    Well, isn't that just delightful?

    xD^ Wow, same here :b . Well, I found it disturbing when I watched the Pokemon b/w TV show episode with trubbish in it. Ashs' pokedex gave really weird data on it...

    Chandelure's flames suck out the souls of people and Pokemon that touch it. Now what if these Dex entries had an effect in the game? and given the fact that it has Flame Body...

    And also Jellicent, the ship-sinker. Ships vanishing without a trace.

    Ok this is kinda wierd.

    1.) Entei's discription actually scares me, When we roars a volcano erupts. Well wouldnt we be dead by now. Haha

    2.)Garbodar's looks freak me out because who wants to have a pokemon made of garbage.

    Cofagrigas' description just completely freaks me out.. It says that if you get too close to it, it devours you. Gamfreak made this practically for all ages, so what's with these crazy descriptions?

    Also, the fact that Cofagrigas eats gold just bugs me.. You'll NEVER get MY gold cofagrigas!!

    ...too bad I don't have any xP

    Darkrai and Chandelure come to mind. Darkrai puts the targets to sleep for eternity, even if it doesn't mean to. Chandelure steals a person's soul, then BURNS it.
