Scariest Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 Hypno Hypno, known in Japan as Sleeper, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

There is a creepy pasta of it

2 Yamask Yamask, known in Japan as Desumasu, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

IT IS A DEAD HUMAN FOR CRYING OUT LOUD ITS FORCED TO HOLD A MASK THAT LOOKS LIKE ITS HUMAN FACE. Sorta cute until you read its back story, SO CREEPY

3 Darkrai Darkrai, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I love this one so much, and yes, I agree that its scary. Its call is so creepy too! ps I have a shiny one on pokemon ultra moon...

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

It killed a girl by giving her nightmares #favorite legendary ever!

Ghosts can creep you out until you're feared of them. - Casicas

4 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.

If I ask it to eat a pokepuff, he will eat me instead. that's how evil he is.

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

5 Banette Banette, known in Japan as Juppeta, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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? )

Gave me the shivers and nightmares for days... The mega evolved form is even weirder.

6 Gengar Gengar, known in Japan by the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Gengar is just as scary as haunter and gastly

Don't pinch my cheeks

awesome

A Pokémon that potentially can follow you by using your shadow? Count me out.

7 Cubone Cubone, known in Japan as Karakara, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It wears the skull of a dead mother. when it looks up at the moon at night, it cries, and the skull rattles loudly

It lost its mother - Casicas

None of these Pokemon scare me I'm a Fan of Pokemon - MEGAMANZEROSTRIDER

Are you a Cuboner

8 Mimikyu Mimikyu is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It is a Ghost and Fairy type whose ability, disguise, allows it to take one hit without taking damage

Well yeah it is pretty creepy but have you heard the mimikyu song in english? It makes mimikyu adorable and waiting for a beloved owner to take care of this adorable creature! ;3

Excuse me hell yes he's scary he looks like a clown just staring at you creepy ID and he's creepy like look at his face I know he's cute and all but he just freaks me out when I look at him sometimes

Idiot:look cute
Mimikyu:LETS PLAY kills with never ending nightmare
Mimikyu must be ghost dark not ghost fairy

Maybe the Pokemon under it is a fairy, there's a theory Clefairy is under the rag. - Staruli

I agree Mimikyu is a creep she should definitely be ghost dark

9 Nidoran

Cute, not scary

Why nidoran?

It is an angry one - Casicas

Xerneas is life and Yveltal is death. Plus, they are two legendaries based on Norse mythology. Yggdrasil and The Blind Eagle. Scary.

If it dies (typo)

12 Duskull

I had a nightmare about Duskulls once. - DinoLover4242

13 Kadabra

Abra is actually creepy (QUITE). - Casicas

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

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!

IT HAUNTS MY DREAMS

15 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?!

Why? Pikachu is NOT scary. Is this post made by a troll? - DinoLover4242

Pikachu is a Pokemon and is scary because if you think about it Pikachu is a ghost ready to posses ash

I screamed when I scrolled down and saw pikachu on this list. he is SO scary. I guess he's not number 1 cause he's a yo kai not a digimon

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.

20 Pinsir Pinsir, known in Japan as Kailios, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
21 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

22 Mr mime

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

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

23 Mawile

I did not know the story oh my gosh that is creepy can someone please make mega banette the creepiest I cannot add him

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

It shoots fire out of its balls

25 Araquanid
26 Deoxys Deoxys, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It has a disturbing appearance, its face looks dead-looking and its eyes look like it stares right past you. No wonder some kids had nightmares about Deoxys. Also, when you think about a space virus, you think of something that could infect creatures like humans, with the space virus killing people or consuming them, therefore turning them into Deoxys. So the world is safer without Deoxys if that's the case. - DinoLover4242

27 Spiritomb Spiritomb, known in Japan as Mikaruge, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I got an egg with this Pokemon in it. Use poison on someone like Emolga if you want them to slowly run out of health if you can't hit them (They use double team like every turn so...) - railfan99

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).

28 Jigglypuff Jigglypuff, known in Japan as Purin, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Me and my friends made a Jigglypuff takes over da world movie it's so scary and it will amplify its voice and take over I tell you!

If JigglyPuff sing, everybody fell asleep. Why? because when is pokemons or humans sleeping, she can easiest Kill them...
