    Actually, Scyther, Scizor and Mega Scizor are scary, but Dynomax Scizor will be even SCÀRIER, even worse, Dynomax Scizor will get an unique ability that makes it completely fireproof! That's right, Dynomax Scizor is somehow immune to fire types!

    Honestly, I thought Araquanid was cute. The Pokédex also says, “Despite what its appearance suggests, it cares for others. If it finds vulnerable, weak Pokémon, it protectively brings them into its water bubble.”
    Galvantula on the other hand is true nightmare fuel. It paralyzes a victim and then slowly, leisurely consumes it. Being eaten alive slowly while being unable to move or scream seems like much scarier way to go if you ask me!

    With Galar being based off of the UK prepare for potentially new fairy-type Pokémon that can be argued as being Nightmare-fuel.

    10. This is an... interesting choice.
    9. That is kinda creepy, but at this point at least we can see its face more clearly.
    8. Banette laughing. Come on MetalKingBoo.
    7. Wait until you see the anime episode and it's screaming like a lunatic.
    6. Okay, yeah, isopods are creepy.
    5. Great, now I'm scared of Eelektross.
    4. Also, Meowth died.
    3. Lol, erect pincers. Pinsir is also terrifying to face when it's Mega evolved.
    2. Well, Darkrai IS the Nightmare Pokemon so what did you expect?
    1. Want me to make it worse? Arauqanid's Pokedex entry in Moon conflicts that by saying it cares for Pokemon. As such, you never know whether this thing will kill you or care for you.

    Does anyone have empathy when you see guzzlord sad 😭😢

    DEVINdDAVIS 3 months ago

    Drowning pokemon is not really true araquanid uses it to get pokemon out of danger duh 😐 look this is the pokedex entre. Despite what it's appearance suggests, it cares for others. If it finds vulnerable, weak pokemon, it protectively brings them into its water bubble. So you are like the old saying don't judge a book by its cover. 😡

    Two things....One, Araquid (I spelled it wrong ^^;) isn't scary...NONE of the Pokemon on this list is scary, possibly to some they are...2) Mimikyu isn't scary at all...He's a tragic character, besides I love the little thing ^^

    Raven Moon 3 months ago +1

    A lot of the Pokemon on the list I find my cute than scary I know I'm weird.

  • Just another random person. Don't mind me.

    Some pokedex entries are nightmare fuel. A few examples:
    Gorebyss sucks out the bodily fluids of its prey.
    A child that had psychic powers woke up one morning and was a Kadabra.
    Dusclops is empty. It will absorb anything and never return it (yes, even people.).
    Looking into the hole on the back of a Shedinja will steal your soul.
