Official description: “It grips prey with its pincers until the prey is torn in half. What it can’t tear, it tosses far.”
There aren’t many cases of Pokemon attacking humans, but it certainly must happen. If Pinsir were ever pushed to the edge, I imagine the victim would be an unrecognizable assemblage of limbs, bones and pureed red stuff. It’s also weird that they make sure to explain Pinsir throws whatever he can’t rend from its prey.
Official description: “Its tongue is made of gas. If licked, its victim starts shaking constantly until death eventually comes.”
This basically amounts to intense physical torture. Haunter is already a badass looking Pokemon, so it goes without saying it gets into some seriously messed up situations, but going so far as to say it intentionally cripples its victims with fatal convulsions is a whole new realm of fear.
Official description: “Its cries sound like incantations. Those hearing it are tormented by headaches and hallucinations.”
As with Grimer, this effect suggests a hostile, nearly unlivable world filled with terrifying creatures. It’s not like there’s one Mismagius causing grief out there – no, there’s probably hundreds, if not thousands of these things floating around, apparently sending untold numbers of people into fits of hysteria. Where are all of these people in the games? Buried alive?
Official description: “It has an active, playful nature. Many women like to frolic with it because of its affectionate ways.”
The idea of a Poke-harem is suitably disturbing, but I also wonder how women are supposed to frolic with a frowning, gruff-looking dog-thing that’s half as tall as they are? This one’s distressing in a different, more alarming way.
Naturally there were a few we had in mind that didn’t make the cut, but what about you? Anything in the Poke-verse that’s always rubbed you the wrong way? Let us know below!
