Darmanitan, Krickitune, and Steelix are pretty f***ing scary.


You really get scared from that?
I take it you've never played horror games with monsters to know real fear.

I take it you haven't come to know the real fear of life.


Yeah, spiders, they mean business... *shudders*

For a game with hundreds of made-up monsters not to have any scary ones is the biggest giveaway.
I looked up the scariest looking pokemon to verify. They are NOT scary.


What about that one that was holding a knife covered in dripping blood?

you try finding a skeleton missingno at age 8, tell me how you feel then.

Have you read some of the pokedex entries? Phantump, Trevenant, Chandelure, Cubone and Driftloon to name a few.Plus, I think Darkrai killed someone.


I can't seem to recall which one but I think the JP Dex entry for Frillish or Jellicent stated something along the lines of grabbing children playing near the shore, dragging them into the sea, and drowning them to death.

When I saw the Frillish just hanging around Undella Bay in White 2 I got a slight case of the shivers.

I'm bothered by the very fact that people exist, but you're an exception.

when u read the pokedex details of some of the pokemon u may realize that this game is getting less and less for kids

Things don't have to be for kids or adults. Good children's stories have included ugly, dark elements since time immemorial, and even the ones that don't often have shadowy imagery or overwhelming displays of human vice. The best stories aren't "good for adults," or "good for children," they're just good.

Dan Schnieder, the man who created iCarly, Victorious, and the spin-off Sam & Cat, is an evil genius. In the series premiere of Sam & Cat, you'll see Jennette McCurdy grind a man's crotch with her butt.

Actually a lot of the early season stuff in that show made my jaw drop in awe that it got past censors.

(If you spend enough time around a racist you'll eventually hear something very similar to what the pig (?) says in the video. Especially after a few beers)

In the older games, there was actually still a little edgy stuff, that kept stuff interesting.

Like the Pokemon Tower. A huge Pokemon graveyard. Or that one of the evil teams cut of Slowpoke tail and sold them for profit.

Now the only place with any edge left is the Pokedex entries.

Well, to be fair, Unova had its own Pokemon Tower, and the storyline of Platinum was pretty dark (it helped that Cyrus was one of the most purely evil villains this franchise has ever had, and that Giratina is more-or-less implied to be the Devil).

But in general, I agree that things have gotten a lot more ... candy-coated? Kanto and Sinnoh in particular were scary places to live. I don't want to act like "dark = adult," because that's a pretty childish notion, but Unova and Kalos were both pretty saccharine. Hell, Reshiram and Zekrom aren't even fundamentally threatening to the balance of nature like the other cover legends have been.

Scary compared to what? The game is a wildlife biologist sim. What is the scariest thing that you could run into in nature? A bear? Got some of those. Alligator? Got some of those. Giant rat? Check.
