Greetings Pokefans! Michael here. So earlier this week I was texting my girlfriend Jubilee telling her how I was studying for a final exam I had this week. And when I was typing the text, I misspelled the word studying, and it autocorrected to “still dying.” So if you, like me, are going through final exams right now, I hope this video makes you feel better and lifts your spirits, and I want you to know that I know that you can do this and you are going to do awesome.
Pokémon Sun and Moon have brought us a ton of new information about Pokémon, whether it’s insight into brand new Pokémon or new information about old Pokémon. I think that a lot of this information is pretty interesting, but some of it is pretty freaking shocking, either because it’s surprising or just plain dark. So in this video, I’m going to be counting down the Top 10 facts about Pokemon from Pokémon Sun and Moon that I think are the most shocking. These will come mainly from Pokedex entries, but a couple will come from other places. So be sure to leave a like, comment below which Pokémon you think will be on the list, and subscribe if you haven’t, and without further ado, here are the Top 10 Shocking facts from Pokémon Sun and Moon. Sliggoo is a pretty gross Pokémon, but it seems like a nice one.
However some new information we got in Gen 7 is that it sometimes accidentally eats it friends. Its Sun dex entry reads “It has trouble drawing a line between friends and food. It will calmly try to melt and eat even those it gets along well with.” That’s pretty messed up, but I can see why it would sometimes make this mistake since the thing is blind. I still don’t plan on befriending any Sliggoo though…just to be safe. Dex entries for both Cubone and Mandibuzz have given us some new insight into a previously unknown relationship between these two bone-focused Pokémon. Apparently, Cubone’s cries for its mother lure in Mandibuzz that proceed to eat it. Those Mandibuzz then adorn themselves with both the bones of Cubone and its mother to supposedly try to impress males that don’t exist. The Cubone that survive long enough to evolve then seek out revenge on Mandibuzz for eating their friends. I was surprised to discover this savage relationship between these Pokémon, but considering Cubone has bones that Mandibuzz wants, it’s actually a pretty cool new predator prey relationship. Since Gen 3, Groudon has ruled the Pokémon weight rankings, and in Gen 6 it added onto its lead with its Primal form that was over 100 pounds heavier.
But Groudon is no longer the heaviest Pokémon of all time. Primal Groudon has officially been passed up in weight both by Cosmoem and Celesteela, two Pokémon that weight pounds more than Primal Groudon. This really surprised me, especially considering the fact that one of these Pokémon floats and the other can fly around like a rocket. The thrify mega mart is easily the creepiest place in Sun and Moon, being totally abandoned, overrun by ghost types, and having a room in the back that isn’t there when you return.
During my playthrough I found myself wondering why this super market was abandoned and destroyed, and it turns out that Tapu Bulu actually destroyed it due to it being built on sacred grounds. I get that Tapu Bulu was pissed, but why wait until it was totally constructed to destroy it? The tapus really do not have likeable personalities at all. I have no idea why the Alolan people worship them. Sun and Moon have allowed us to read dex entries for Mega Evolutions for the first time, and some of them are pretty shocking. One in particular that stands out to me is Mega Aerodactyl’s Moon entry. “When it Mega Evolves, it becomes more vicious than ever before. Some say that’s because its excess of power is causing it pain.” Apparently, mega evolving Aerodactyl causes it to be in constant pain, which is pretty shocking and disturbing. I can assure you I will not be mega evolving my Aerodactyl any time soon.
For years we’ve known that Primeape is a Pokémon that is continuously pissed off. I mean, just look at its face. But some new information from this gen is that its anger can supposedly get so severe that it kills it. “It has been known to become so angry that it dies as a result. Its face looks peaceful in death, however.” Well that’s extremely depressing. Primeape spends its whole life angry and upset, and the only way it can achieve peace is if it dies. Thanks Gamefreak. Since Mimikyu was revealed, we’ve known that it hides its normal appearance with a rag decorated like Pikachu to make itself more likeable. But what we didn’t know is how severely terrifying it looks under that thing. “Its actual appearance is unknown. A scholar who saw what was under its rag was overwhelmed by terror and died from the shock.” Mimikyu looks so horrifying that it killed someone just by looking at them.
Holy crap. No wonder it likes to cover up. Another Mega evolution that we got more information about thanks to the new Pokedex data is Mega Salamence, and it has revealed that this thing is ruthlessly cruel and vicious, AND that its wings are incredibly sharp. Let me just read these dex entries to you. The Sun one says “Anyone standing in its path gets sliced right in two, while this Pokémon continues its flight without interruption.” What the hell man? Killing people by accident and not caring at all? That’s messed up! But do you know what’s even more messed up? Its Moon entry. “Mega Evolution fuels its brutality, and it may even turn on the Trainer who raised it. It’s been dubbed “the blood-soaked crescent.”” So in short, Mega Salamence is a violent monster who you should never create if you care for the safety of yourself and those around you. Okay my next couple sentences are going to have some minor story spoilers, so if you want to skip them, go to this time in the video. But if you don’t, let’s talk about Lusamine. When you enter her hidden lab area or whatever, you discover that she has a bunch of frozen Pokemon: her private collection.
I was very disturbed by that, but it turns out there’s actually a worse version of it: Froslass. Froslass does the same as Lusamine, but with people too. Its Moon entry reads “When it finds humans or Pokémon it likes, it freezes them and takes them to its chilly den, where they become decorations.” Pretty freaking shocking right?! And seriously creepy. Just like Lusamine. A Pokedex entry I’ve seen circulated around the internet for the last few week’s is Gengar’s Sun entry: “Should you feel yourself attacked by a sudden chill, it is evidence of an approaching Gengar. There is no escaping it. Give up.” Now while it is shocking for the Pokedex to essentially tell you that you’re screwed in a pretty creepy way, it’s not actually a new fact about Gengar.
Gengar has been around for a long time, so we know that it’s a super creepy Pokémon that makes the air colder when it attacks people. But what really shocked me about Gengar is the Pokedex entry people aren’t talking about as much. Its Moon entry reads: “It apparently wishes for a traveling companion. Since it was once human itself, it tries to create one by taking the lives of other humans.” Did you catch that?! Gengar used to be human!! There are other Pokémon who were human before, but we never knew that Gengar was until now. Such an iconic Pokémon getting such an intense new backstory is something I was not expecting at all and is definitely the most shocking new information we’ve gotten from Sun and Moon. So there we have it! Those are the Top 10 most shocking Pokémon facts from Pokémon Sun and Moon. I hope that this video gave you some new information you didn’t know before. I’ve been discovering a lot playing though these games, and I really like sharing my knowledge with you guys! What did you think of this video? Do you agree with my list?
