Scariest Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 Hypno Hypno

The fact that it can hypnotize almost anyone/anything, and in a matter of 3 seconds, is creepy enough. I haven't even seen the CreepyPasta. Malamar is also pretty creepy, but if you take into account that it's relatively rare, it's fine. If you use the anime/show's advice, then it saying "HYPNO" Constantly is pretty flipping creepy. Pokémon aren't real, and I'm not trying to act like they are, either. However, I don't think that it's the SCARIEST. There are worse. Malamar's description, for one, says that it has the "highest hypnotic power," proving that Hypno's hypnosis doesn't work all the time. But, if they WERE real, I would definitely run. (Again, hypothetically.)

Hypno is creepy as hell, I love it's my favorite Pokemon

There is a creepy pasta of it

Hypno is scary AS, and his first stage Drowsy, EATS dreams. Also don't listen to the Hypno lullaby, you’ll die. Ooh that rhymes...

A human died, turned into a Pokemon ghost and carries a mask to resemble its face.

An episode in black & white where he inspirited Cilan so scary!

This the scariest

See why Pokemon was forgotten about before Pokemon Go.
You needed Pokemon websites.

3 Banette Banette

HELL, YES! It should be #1 because it later gets revenge on the child that threw it out and you know what THAT means... that kid is about to wish they didn't throw out the doll because their last play date is in their DEATH BED!

God, is this creepy. It was an old marionette tossed by a kid, and now this freak is gonna kill that kid, and probably the whole family. Let's cremate him, shall we?!

This would definitely work against me later because I keep over 30 stuffed animals (wait to stuffed animals count? )

CREEPY CREEPY DOLL I HATE DOLLS DOLLS ARE CREEPY (I like you banette though I don't hate you, don't worry)

12 Kadabra

Abra is actually creepy (QUITE). - Casicas

13 Duskull
14 Missingno

Come on people Arceus is a God Pokemon, but it can be caught and controlled by a mortal. Missingno. can be caught, but it screws up your game and in some cases catching Missingno. ruins their game to where they can't start a new one. It's actually a glitch, but it a type. It's bird/normal. (Not flying, bird was a beta type which they removed. ) - ThunderdrumsRule

This shouldn't count!

Is really cool to catch! He is strangely a Steel/ bird type, or in some games? / Steel.and can learn water gun twice! Have you ever wondered why his pokedex says Rocket like a thousand times?

15 Rayquaza Rayquaza Rayquaza is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It lives in the ozone layer, and frequently stops battles with Kyogre and Groudon, two other Legendaries.

Rayquaza - He it wants only destroy from the game "pokemon emerald" - mewtwo1

No mercy, no love, only "destroy". - mewtwo1

16 Spoink Spoink

It will die if it stops bouncing. - Casicas

Why does it die - Doggus

It has to jump in its sleep, poor spoink oh wait it gets better if it faints it stops bouncing, so in this case if spoink faints it dies R.I.P Spoink Lets play: episode 1-Lets play: episode 2 :(

17 Haunter Haunter Haunter, known in Japan as Ghost, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It abducts people and kills them! When I was little I was looking at it and what regions it was in and said "I'm never gonna play the games with it".

If it kills the people it licks, maybe because charmander isn't a person, it is a pokemon.

It kills the people it licks well it licked charmander and he's back in x and y die already charizard

18 Pikachu Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

What the hell is pikachu doing on this list?!


19 Phantump

I actually find this cute including the fact that it's the ghost of a child.

Now I'm terrified by them...
Oh God...

In Pokemon Y its description is "According to old tales, these Pokémon are stumps possessed by the spirits of children who died while lost in the forest" That's why they are scary.

20 Mr mime

He just looks creepy

It's just his disign, mimes are creepy, so I think that GameFreak did a good job!

Yes Yes Yes Yes this is so creepy if you are afraid of clowns or not afraid of clowns this is anyone's nightmare.
