What is the most messed up Pokémon?

Answered by Willian Lymon

The most messed up Pokémon in my opinion would have to be Drifblim. Now, I know what you’re thinking, a cute little balloon Pokémon, what could be so horrifying about that? Well, let me tell you, it’s not the appearance of Drifblim that makes it terrifying, it’s the Pokedex entries that reveal its true nature.

According to the Pokedex, Drifblim is said to be a collection of lost souls. Imagine that, a Pokémon that is made up of the spirits of the deceased. It’s a chilling concept to think about. And what’s even more disturbing is that it lures people and Pokémon to ride on its back, only to whisk them away to the afterlife. So not only is it a vessel for lost souls, but it also acts as a grim reaper of sorts, ferrying the living to the realm of the dead.

But Drifblim isn’t the only Pokémon with horrifying Pokedex entries. Another one that stands out is Dusknoir. This Ghost-type Pokémon is described as having a mouth on its belly, which it uses to swallow its victims whole. Can you imagine being devoured by a Pokémon? It’s a gruesome image that certainly leaves a lasting impression.

Then there’s Yveltal, a Legendary Pokémon known as the Destruction Pokémon. Its Pokedex entry states that when its life comes to an end, it absorbs the life force of every living thing around it. This means that not only does Yveltal bring about its own demise, but it also causes the death of everything in its vicinity. It’s a dark and disturbing concept, to say the least.

Tsareena, a Grass/Fairy-type Pokémon, may not seem too sinister at first, but its Pokedex entry reveals a more unsettling side. It states that Tsareena exudes a pheromone that causes opponents to become infatuated or intimidated. This implies that Tsareena has the ability to manipulate others through chemical means, which is a creepy thought.

Palossand, a Ghost/Ground-type Pokémon, is another unsettling creature. Its Pokedex entry describes it as a sandcastle possessed by the souls of the departed. Not only does it trap unsuspecting prey in its sandy clutches, but it also absorbs their life force. It’s a morbid combination of supernatural possession and predatory behavior.

Phantump, a Ghost/Grass-type Pokémon, is particularly eerie due to its origin story. According to the Pokedex, Phantump is the spirit of a child who got lost in the forest and perished. It now seeks companionship and tries to make children lost in the woods become its friends. The idea of a lost child’s spirit haunting the forest is undeniably haunting.

Mimikyu, a Ghost/Fairy-type Pokémon, is both sad and disturbing. Its Pokedex entry reveals that it wears a disguise to hide its true form, which is said to be so horrifying that it would drive anyone who sees it to madness. Mimikyu’s desperate desire to be loved and accepted is both tragic and unsettling.

Mismagius, a Ghost-type Pokémon, is known for its mischievous and malevolent behavior. Its Pokedex entry states that it enjoys playing pranks on people and causing them to become lost in the forest. It feeds off the fear and confusion of its victims, which is a truly unsettling characteristic.

These are just a few examples of the horrifying Pokedex entries found in the Pokémon games. From Drifblim’s collection of lost souls to Yveltal’s destructive powers, these entries depict Pokémon in a much darker light than their cute appearances might suggest. It’s these unsettling aspects that make these Pokémon the most messed up in my book.
