Top 10 Creepiest Pokemon
There's a lot of popular things I just don't get... things like pro football, the genius of Led Zeppelin or why a person of any age would watch My Little Pony. Even in the realm of video games where I hide from the light of day throwing out articles so an editor will feed me and keep the blinking machine turned on, there are series that leave me baffled as to why anyone plays them.
Take Pokémon, for instance. It plays like an RPG that left school in the tenth grade to work at the Citgo, and the premise is a combination of Michael Vick and Manifest Destiny. Yet they just keep on shooting them out, and people keep on buying them. Maybe it's because of the cuteness of the Pokemon themselves, but you don't have to look real hard to realize that the creatures are actually as horrible as those flies that lay eggs in the brains of fire ants.
The theory is that Gengar is the living, evil shadow of the much less creepy Clefairy. Considering its name is meant to echo the word doppelganger, and that its diet is apparently human souls, Gengar is apparently what happens when David Lynch decides the Black Lodge would make an excellent cartoon.
All Cubones wear the skulls of their mothers as helmets, and spend their lives crying and singing sad songs in memory of them. At best, they are all orphans of some kind of mompocalypse, or at worst they are all mentally unhinged cannibals straight out of the Twisted Metal universe.
