Creepy Pokedex Entries


Pokemon
has been part of my life since early in elementary school. It’s definitely a kids’ show and everything, but if you look into the depths of the franchise, it’s obvious that it’s not just for kids. Perfect example are ghost Pokemon. Have you ever looked at the Pokedex entries for some of these Pokemon? Sometimes you get ghost Pokémon that are relatively harmless, like Misdreavous feeding off the small amounts of fear it induces by pranking people. Even Shuppet feeding off vengeful people isn’t too crazy (that’s pretty much how Joe lives his life). But then you have others that’ll send a chill up your spine. So in honor of Halloween, take a look at some of these chilling Pokedex entries. 

Banette: “A doll that became a Pokémon over its grudge from being junked. It seeks the child that disowned it.” (Black/White)


Drifloon: “Wandering souls gathered together to form this Pokémon. When trying to make friends with children, Drifloon grabs them by the hand.” (Ultra Moon)

Dusknoir: “At the bidding of transmissions from the spirit world, it steals people and Pokémon away. No one knows whether it has a will of its own.” (Sword)

Duskull: “If it finds bad children who won't listen to their parents, it will spirit them away--or so it's said.” (Heart Gold/Soul Silver)

Froslass: “The soul of a woman lost on a snowy mountain possessed an icicle, becoming this Pokémon. The food it most relishes is the souls of men.” (Moon)

Haunter: “Its tongue is made of gas. If licked, its victim starts shaking constantly until death eventually comes.” (Silver)


Litwick: “The flame on its head keeps its body slightly warm. This Pokémon takes lost children by the hand to guide them to the spirit world.” (Sword)

Mismagius: “Its muttered curses can cause awful headaches or terrifying visions that torment others.” (Ultra Moon)

Palossand: “Each of its grains of sand has its own will. Palossand eats small Pokémon and siphons away their vital essence while they're still alive.” (Ultra Sun)


“After a lost child perished in the forest, their spirit possessed a tree stump, causing the spirit's rebirth as this Pokémon.” (Sword)

Yamask: “Each of them carries a mask that used to be its face when it was human. Sometimes they look at it and cry.” (Alpha Sapphire)
