Scariest Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 Hypno Hypno

I remember the first time that I listened to Hypno's Lullaby. There is only one word to describe that experience: SURREAL. I felt sorta weird afterward, kinda down, and sorta tired, as if my energy had been drained. I picked up my 3DS and started playing Pokemon Sun, but I felt this urge to talk to every Hypno in the game's overworld, hoping that one would hypnotize me. When none of them did, I visited the Pokedex and made the image of Hypno swing its pendulum, hoping that I would be hypnotized. Only by watching a Top 10 Cutest Pokemon list was I able to feel better. I know it sounds like a bad creepypasta, but it's true. Ever since then, I have been terrified of Hypno and anything to do with it, including real-world hypnosis.

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

That is not scary bozos*-RVZ Stagris

3 Giratina Giratina Giratina is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Giratina first appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, but gained prominence in the sister game, Pokémon Platinum, which it was made the mascot of.

Banished for its violence means arceus couldn't stop it and look at its design

It is the scariest/coolest Pokemon!

Brave guy:must kill this monster giratina kills

Giant catterpillar of death!

It's basically The Boogeyman of Pokemon. Giving people nightmares wherever it goes.

5 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)

Ghost and Dark type pokemon (They are common fears), formed by 108 spirits (the people after they die), fissures in an odd keystone which makes noises, looks evil (of course, it also looks like it is doing an evil laugh).

18 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

It would defeat Digimon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Goku, and a lot of other anime characters with ease. It is a glitch Pokemon therefore making it the strongest!

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?

19 Hydreigon Hydreigon Dark/Dragon Pokemon, thought to be similar to Hydra . Drei is german for three, as in the name it relates to the head count of the stage of evolution .
20 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.

Haunter licked misty before though - Toptenanimallovers

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

21 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 :(

22 Pinsir Pinsir
23 Gyarados Gyarados Gyarados is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It evolves from one of the weakest Pokemon, Magikarp. But Gyarados has a high attack power (as of gen VII, mega Gyarados is ranking #19 for highest attack stat & would rank #10 if legendary Pokemon aren't included), and more.
24 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...

Its cute *see pokedex* KILL THAT THING - Toptenanimallovers

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.

25 Mr mime

This thing is a clown! How can it not be number one?

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.

26 Mawile Mawile

Mawile is based off of a legend about a woman wearing a mask on her face, hiding a demonic mouth with sharp teeth. If she stops you where there's no people around, she asks you if you think she's beautiful. If you say no, she brutally kills you with a sharp object, if you say yes, she removes the mask and asks you again. Either way, she kills you if you say yes again since she carves a giant smile into your mouth similar to hers.
Mawile tries to lure people in with its eyes thinking its cute and harmless, until she turns around and gets them with its jaws. Just goes to show you that cuteness can suddenly turn deadly...

A Japanese legend when a lady killed his husband cause it turned brutal at night - TENTACRUEL

I always felt like Mawile was like a killer robot due to it's typing: Steel/Fairy. Even more so when fairy was introduced in gen 6, now I think it's a robot that's possessed by a killer fairy/dragon slayer. More like a life slayer now that it wants to eradicate all organic life O_o

27 Lampent

It takes you to hell! - Userguy44

Lampent is sooo scary! How can it not be number one?

28 Mewtwo X/Y Mewtwo X/Y

This pokemon is scary not just because it looks scary.IT WANTS TO DESTROY ALL POKEMON
