Creepy Pokedex Entries (Every Wednesday for the Month of October)

Hello everyone, and welcome to another look at a well-loved topic! As said before, I am a huge fan of the Pokemon franchise. I adore the gigantic amount of characters and their very unique designs. One of the most important tools in a Pokemon Trainer’s arsenal is the Pokedex, a compendium of all the various creatures you will meet on your journey. Despite the “E” rating, Japan has managed to put some pretty disturbing information into the dex. It becomes less of a children-friendly game, and more of a horror story. So, to celebrate the month of Halloween, I will be adding the most bizarre and messed up entries that I can find. Now, let’s dive into the amazing world of Pokemon!

  •    Bruxish  The Gnash Teeth Pokemon (Based off of a filefish or reef triggerfish) 

Size: 2″11 Weight: 41.9lbs

Bruxish is a water/psychic fish Pokemon from Generation VII. It’s quite colorful, and has a mouth that’s full of sharp teeth. They can be caught from fishing spots in the Secluded Shore.

Pokedex entry from Pokemon Moon: It stuns its prey with psychokinesis and grinds them to mush with its strong teeth. Even Shelder’s shell is no match for it. (Yes brutal death, totally a kid’s game!)

  • Dusclops The Beckon Pokemon (Based off of a Hitotsume-kozo)

Size: 5’03” Weight: 67.5 lbs

Dusclops is a pure ghost type Pokemon from Generation III. It’s a fairly large, cyclopean ghost with a grey body that resembles bandages on a mummy. It can be found be leveling up Duskull to level 37.

Pokedex entry from Omega Ruby: Dusclops’s body is completely hollow—–there is nothing at all inside. It is said that its body is like a black hole. This Pokemon will absorb anything into its body, but nothing will ever come back out. (O_O)

Konichiwa, everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to the “Land of the Rising Sun”!

  • Hone onna are macabre creatures of Japanese mythology. They’re depicted as  spirits with rotting faces. It’s said that they are the ghosts of beautiful women that died at a young age. They will visit their old lover’s homes, and try to seduce them. If successful, Hone onna will begin to drain their lover’s life force. When fully drained, the man will die, joining his former lover in the afterlife.

  • *I have done this next yokai before, but I am going to update the entry just in time for Halloween.* Teke teke are incredibly violent creatures of Japanese folklore. They’re depicted as the animated upper bodies of bisected women. Their name comes from the sound that they make when they run on their arms. The origin story of these creatures is a bit difficult to depict, and there’re many speculations of how this yokai was created. Some tales depict the yokai as a victim of a horrific accident, or suicide. They will chase down victims with a sickle. Despite the lack of legs Teke Teke are extremely fast, and can even outrun cars. When they catch their victims, they slice them in half, and steal their legs. Teke Teke have only one weakness, and it depends of the story. Some legends say that magical charms can ward off the creature’s attacks. Others says that you’re “shit outta luck”, and will die almost instantly.
