Scary/creepy/weird stuff in Pokémon (games, anime, manga etc.)

    It's just that the flute is required to get past Snorlax just to make navigation of the Kanto region a bit easier. Also Snorlax is a nice Pokémon to use if you ever get to catch one.

    But it was nice but at first weird for me to see Snorlax finally stand in X and Y in battle.

    I don't think it's possible to beat the game without battling at least one of them is it...? they block off Fuchsia City.

    I remember that there are two. One blocks the path from Celadon City to Cycling Road and the other blocks the intersection between Route 11 and Route 12. The only one you have to catch or defeat is the one that's blocking Cycling Road, otherwise you can't progress.

    Just saying that they look pretty small in the overworld, especially in X and Y, where it just covers the width of a bridge.

    Like the white hand?

    Snorlax took 20 years to stand up. XD

    I think the developers wanted Snorlax to be a bit more expressive as other Pokémon so yeah.

    Not really scary or creepy, more like weird but funny:

    Remember that part in Sun/Moon where you go to Po Town and Team Skull have taken over this giant mansion? In one room, you see two female Skull grunts talking to each other. One of them says "OH EM GEE!", which is probably the closest Pokémon has ever gotten to someone saying "Oh my God!"

    ...Although technically it would be OMA, for "Oh my Arceus!"

    I found that to be a pretty weird coincidence but at the same time somehow typical. It's just interesting why something like that would even be in a Pokémon game.

    Team Skull all act like airheads with short fuses so I felt like a valley girl grunt made sense.

    Depends on how much she uses the word 'like' for me. Would have made perfect sense if she did use it quite a lot.

    I think she was talking to the other grunt about how dirty her tank top was.

    IDK the "Arceus is worshiped as God" thing seems just to be fanon. The Pokedex entries all include some variation of "In mythology this Pokemon shaped the universe" Some even further specify "in the mythology of Sinnoh" so it looks like Arceus is less the Judeo-Christian God and, if anything, probably more like a Kami in Shinto Mythology.
    We know very little about any actual, modern religion in Pokemon, just as we know very little about any actual, modern government.
    So while it may open a few questions, it's probably just really a translator trying to convey that she's a stereotypical Valley Girl/air head.

    That grunt was talking about how the other grunt was wearing her tank top and that it smelt stinky. But then the other one used like only once and I didn't really feel the full 'valley girl' effect.

    It might not but stated but I think it's implied . Spear pillar and the hall of origin are very likely nods to mount Olympus with the Greco-Roman pillars and being at the top of a mountain and in the cathedral-esque building in Hearthrome there is a stained glass window depicting what appears to be light coming from the top of Mount Coronet. It might not be confirmed but it hasn't been debunked.

    While that is true, I still don't think people in the pokemon world would say "oh my arceus". He's still a God so "oh my god" still works and "oh my arceus" just sounds awkward.

    I don't know why, but Ultra Necrozma's theme sounds kind of creepy. It's probably the organs, which makes it sound more like a battle of good vs. evil than something you'd normally hear in a Pokémon game. In Japanese, Ultra Necrozma's Z-Move, Light that Burns the Sky, is called Heaven-Scorching Light of Destruction, which further adds to the celestial feel of the whole thing. And it looks like a nuclear explosion.

    It didn't sound creepy to me but it sounded very intense. It felt like having the ultimate Pokémon fight, which fits well with how powerful Ultra Necrozma was in USUM. And I felt that Light That Burns The Sky is just as intense.

    I believe you already mentioned him in this thread previously. That was pretty... weird.

    So this is what happens to master-class trainers who haven't gotten their battle-fix in a long time.

    There's that age-old debate of whether people in the Pokémon world eat Pokémon like we do with animals in the real world. I think it's been shown in the anime a few times, like in the episode on the SS Anne where a fantasy shows plates of chopped Magikarp.

    Although that might be pretty freaky in some cases; would people eat KFC - Kentucky Fried Combusken? :p:D

    (By the way, I've changed the thread title so that it includes scary or weird stuff in the manga and anime as well as the games.)
