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.)

This thing looks horrendous and can hypnotize anyone (hence their species name), which makes people act strange and/or do had things. At least Drowzee looks cute and cool looking, but Hypno is straight up horrible looking as if a person tried to create a half humans half tapir hybrid. :O

I'd have to say the creepiest Pokemon is Mr. Mime lol, it scares me because it is miming and its creepy, hypno is not super crepy, but I watch aphmau and I see why it is on here though, check her YouTube channel, she is funny and entetaining with her friends, she plays Minecraft pixelmon too.

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!

Totally scary what more if it evolves... Hmmm scariest Pokemon evolution family

It cries. Let me tell you this Pokémon is a dead person.

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

I find being killed in sleep more disturbing than almost anything. Only other thing that scares me is hypnosis

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!

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.

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

Brave guy:must kill this monster giratina kills

It is the scariest/coolest Pokemon!

Looks like alive dead. Black and red!

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

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

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

Sad...
It wears the skull of its mother in the form of a memory.
This gave Pokémon games with Cubone in it a little dark side.

It lost its mother

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

Mimikyu looks adorable and that's why I love it, because it's adorable yet kinda whimsical and rustic-looking AND scary. This thing. Someone DIED from looking at it. But, it's tough and I love it, so me and my Mimi are together forever =D

Unless it kills me...

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

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

Mimikyu makes the most sound effects, my favorite pokemon

9 Nidoran

It is an angry one

Cute, not scary

10 Dusknoir Dusknoir, known in Japan as Yonoir, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Shadow at the dusk of day.

The Contenders

11 Yveltal Yveltal is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in the 6th gen, Yveltal is a legendary Dark/Flying type Pokemon, and is the mascot of Pokemon Y. It is classified as the Destruction Pokemon. Yveltal has the ability to absorb life energy, and when its life comes to an end, it steals ...read more.

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

This is below Nidoran. This Pokemon is literally death itself.

This red eagle is the lord Beerus of the Pokemon world. Hell, "evil" is in the pronunciation: ee-vell-tal.

If it dies (typo)

12 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.

it made the corona virus

13 Duskull

I had a nightmare about Duskulls once.

14 Kadabra

Abra is actually creepy (QUITE).

15 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. )

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!

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?

This shouldn't count!

16 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.

Why? Pikachu is NOT scary. Is this post made by a troll or is it because Pikachus are related to a much-hated rats and pest mice?

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

What the hell is pikachu doing on this list?!

One out of control thunderbolt and BUZ you're DEAD

17 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"

No mercy, no love, only "destroy".

18 Spoink Spoink, known in Japan as Baneboo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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 :(

He scary like a as butterfie and why is Pikachu on here? That's the scariest thing about TheTopTen website

It will die if it stops bouncing.

Why does it die

19 Pinsir Pinsir, known in Japan as Kailios, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
20 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 ...read more.
21 Araquanid
22 Phantump

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.

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

23 Mr. Mime Mr. Mime, known in Japan as Barrierd, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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!

He just looks creepy

Yuck yuck yuck

24 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...

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

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

That black creature on her head though...

25 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

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