    I believe the Alakazam one actually meant until it died of OLD AGE, not from his brain getting too large. Anyway one thing that has always seemed very off to me is that there are some pokemon who's descriptions state that they eat other pokemon. right now Sneasel's is the only one I remember (from silver) and I believe it said that Sneasel's eat Pidgey eggs? I mean, these are the only animals in this world, there are no dogs, only growlithes or poochyenas and the like. No birds or fish, just Fearow or Gyarados. So the carnivourous looking beasties such as Tyrannitar or Ursuring must eat other, smaller creatures like Goldeen and Caterpie, right? Another thing is I remember the old Johto pokemon series from when I was like eight or nine years old, and Ursuring always tried to make anything that it saw EXTREMELY dead. So I wonder how many people bit it in the pokemon universe from being attacked by pokemon? Pokemon is a very dark franchise when you think of how things must actually work in it's ecosystem.

    Also I concur with El_Hombre11, this should be a weekly or monthly update. There are over 493 pokemon, and we already know the fifth generation that will have another 100+ pokemon is on it's way.

    If there was a sequel to this article, Lopunny and Golbat would make the cut for it. Lopunny because I SWEAR that something was mentioned about it's physical appearance and Golbat because its a Poke-vampire-man that sucks blood until engorged (I paid attention to the pokedex description from SoulSilver). For some reason I can't explain (Viva La Vida reference), I found the pics more to laugh about than to cringe at. Maybe deep down, I want the series to take a turn to the more mature, and I truly feel that. So much of Pokemon can be assumed from what little info is given.

    All of the tentacle pokemon... I mean, really!?! Do they really need that many pokemon who have a shit load of tentacles???

    all forms of gastly are weird, gastly dies if there is a high wind, haunter kills people with deadly convulsions, and gengar hides in the shadows and steals people's souls. and how has nobody mentioned darkrai? a pokemon that invades people's dreams and keeps them in a neverending nightmare? i cant imagine that im the only one who was creeped out when i saw that kid lying in his bed, unable to wake up in canalave city

    Yeah, I was thinking that too, but most of it's pokedex entries aren't all that threatening. This entry from Soul Silver fits well though: "It chases people and Pokémon from its territory by causing them to experience deep, nightmarish slumbers."

    Snubbull, what a slut!
  • Schnipke - May 28, 2010 3:11 a.m.

    I remember in third generation pokedex that Duskull kidnap naughty children and in one of the newer games that dusclops capture a lot of will-o-wisps and hold them in there bodies. recaptcha: somatostatin noddy what the hell do those words mean?!?

    Anyone ever pay a second thought the description of Swellow, the evolved form of Tailow? It says that it eats Wurmple! One species of Poke'mon eating another, that's some something that's never truly been addressed.

    This has been one of the best articles I've read on the site. I concur with the rest, monthly feature, please!

    I've noticed all of these before, but I prefer just to try to forget the implications. Some things are just better to forget. ._. Also, the Alakazham one isn't necessarily disturbing. It is possible its brain cells naturally die off quickly enough that it is fine or that it replicates only when new cells are needed to replace dead cells. Still... best just not to think about it.

    I'd be down for a M rated pokemon game that takes all the descriptions seriously
  • BladedFalcon - October 8, 2013 12:12 p.m.

    ...Who did the art for the new entries? Those are some awesome pieces of work right there!
  • GR_LucasSullivan - October 8, 2013 12:22 p.m.

    T. Wilde did it all! What a difference three years makes!
  • BladedFalcon - October 8, 2013 1:03 p.m.

  • artcellrox - October 8, 2013 11:04 p.m.

    Seriously?! He needs to have a deviantArt account, or something, I WANT MORE! Also, great new additions. Will we see more updates soon from Kalos?
  • Zeos - October 8, 2013 1:24 p.m.

    Never knew Pokemon could be so morbid. Awesome.
  • shawksta - October 8, 2013 2:06 p.m.

    Damn straight this are morbid. As Bladedfalcon says, awesome art Tyler. Speaking of which, with Pokemon X and Y coming out this week, we COULD expect a Pokemon Representative in Smash be revealed.
  • Elgyem - October 8, 2013 2:18 p.m.

    Where are the rest from Unova? The scolipede art was awesome!
  • Fuzunga - October 8, 2013 2:36 p.m.

    SPOILERS, YO Here's some great new ones: Phantump: According to old tales, the Pokemon are stumps possessed by the spirits of children who died while lost in the forest. Trevenant: It can control trees at will. It will trap people who harm the forest, so they can never leave.
