5 most messed up Pokémon

Thursday, 18 August 2016

With the release of Pokémon Go, these cute little buggers have become super popular again. Well they may not be as adorable as they seem, some of them have a dark past that would even make Edgar Alan Poe recoil in horror. So I sincerely believe it's my duty to uncover the sordid pasts of these creatures. Therefore in no particular order here are 5 of the most messed up Pokémon around.

1 - Drowzee

Drowzee looks like some kind of weird sleepy anteater, but behind those sleepy looking eyes is the soul of a straight up monster. He is a pretty snide dude, he literally eats your dreams. This is what the Pokédex tells us about him.

So let's break this down; he sneaks into your house while your asleep then sucks your dreams out of your nose and eats them! What a creepo!

2 - Cubone

The tale of Cubone is a very sad one. You see every Cubone is an orphan, after giving birth their mother dies. Sad right? Well that's not all, the skull its wearing is it's dead mothers. Some say the stains on the skull are from the tears it sheds for its mother.

3 - Banette

Banette would feel right at home in a horror version of Toy Story. This Pokémon came to life from an abandoned child's toy. The hatred and anger they it felt from being thrown away brought it to life. Now it spends it's days wondering about searching after the child that abandoned it, FOR REVENGE!

4 - Yamask

Yamask is pretty freaky looking. I'm not even really sure what I'm looking at when I see it? Well apparently this used to be a human! That's right by catching this little fellow you're enslaving a human. They are formed from spirits trapped in old graves, and the mask that they carry is of their old human face. They can even remember before they became a Pokémon and look down at their old face and cry.

5 - Litwick

Litwick is probably the cutest one on this list, it's also the most deadly. Litwick may seem like it's being cute and helpful lighting up dark alleyways for weary travelers, but its just a trap. It will lure you in then suck out your soul, leaving you a limp husk of a human on the floor.

"Litwick shines a light that absorbs the life energy of people and Pokémon, which becomes the fuel that it burns."

There are lots more Pokémon out there that have dubious motives and terrible histories but hopefully this little list has educated you that not all Pokémon can be trusted. Hopefully when Pokémon Sun and Moon comes out later this year we can discover more interesting and weird creatures.
