Most dangerous Pokemon
(If this has been a thread before, don't hesitate to get rid of it)
I was recently reading Cracked.com's article on Most Dangerous Animal, and it got me thinking, What about the most dangerous Pokemon? Not counting Legendaries, of course. I know all Pokemon are dangerous in some way, but some seem more likely to attack and scarier than others. (I know this is just Pokemon but still.)
So I put on my thinking cap and came up with this:
This savage seven-foot-tall behemoth has gigantic jaws and teeth the size of knives, and apparently can run extremely fast even when not in water.
I mean geez, just check out its Pokedex entries. Examples:
"When it bites with its massive and powerful jaws, it shakes its head and savagely tears its victim up."
"It opens its huge mouth to intimidate enemies. In battle, it runs using its thick and powerful hind legs to charge the foe with incredible speed. "
I don't know, but my loyal Feraligatr in Heartgold has suddenly become a lot more sinister.
It can also use Hydro Pump and Superpower.
Imagine meeting one of these things in the wild. Granted, this is Pokemon so it probably wouldn't attack you, but let's try to be realistic and imagine if this was the real world. You are prey, and if you are anywhere near its young it will annihilate you.
Even touching this thing will hurt you, due to its Rough Skin ability.
Sharpedos are capable of swimming 75 Miles an hour, are carnivorous and eat anything that moves, can bite through metal (Just one can tear apart an oil tanker), are known as the Bully of the Sea, and are totally feared and distrusted, for a good reason.
"Sharpedo is driven by an unruly, caustic urge to attack and destroy anything that enters its domain."
Imagine sailing on your yacht, the sun shining overhead, your loyal Snubbull or Skitty at your side.
Then a Sharpedo comes streaking out of nowhere, throwing itself at your boat and generally acting like a Pokemon equivilant of Jaws.
Even if you do have Pokemon that can fend it off it's still scary at hell.
And if you don't have strong Pokemon, well, you're screwed aren't you? Unless you can manage to turn your boat around and hightail out of there, followed to the edges of its territory by a furious, rabid Sharpedo, while your loyal Skitty cowers in the cabin.
Sharpedos=Scary as sh*t.
Giant Snake. Venomous. Vengeful. Need I say more?
An average Arbok is 11 feet long. Even the patterns on its belly can freak you out. Pokedex entry: "Transfixing prey with the face-like pattern on its belly, it binds and poisons the frightened victim."
Or: "With a very vengeful nature, it won't give up the chase, no matter how far, once it targets its prey."
Imagine going out for a walk and being spotted by one of these things. Eventually if you manage to outrun it or beat it with your Pokemon, it will follow you home. And maybe even kill your family.
Maybe I'm overreacting. This is just Pokemon, after all. But come on.
"This Pokémon is terrifically strong in order to constrict things with its body. It can even flatten steel oil drums. Once Arbok wraps its body around its foe, escaping its crunching embrace is impossible."
"The pattern on its belly is for intimidation. It constricts foes when they are frozen in fear."
You spot the pattern. You freeze for half a second. And in that small period of time the Arbok has you in its coils, suffocating you and crushing you to death.
In order to prove my point, I will use nothing but Pokedex entries to describe this Pokemon.
"It explodes in response to even minor stimuli. It is feared, with the nickname of 'The Bomb Ball'. "
"They appear in great numbers at electric power plants. Because they feed on electricity, they cause massive and chaotic blackouts in nearby cities."
"It is dangerous. If it has too much electricity and has nothing to do, it amuses itself by exploding."
"It is known to drift on winds if it is bloated to bursting with stored electricity." HERE COME THE ELECTRODE
GENGAR: This thing is pure High Octane Nightmare Fuel by itself.
It can hide perfectly in the shadow of any object.
It is incredibly stealthy.
It can fly.
And it eats people's souls.
Gengars are incredibly mischievous and malicious. They revel in your terror and can cast curses. Thay eat your life force, and you can encounter it in any moderately dark place... like your closet. And you can't find out if it's there or not, because it hides in shadows.
It lives in human dwellings. You'd better keep a sharp eye on your toddler, or else you'll find him slumped over his crib, eyes blank and empty, while the echoing laugh of a Gengar reverbrates around the room.
Oh, did I mention that it can give you nightmares? Cue sleepless nights, snappy attitudes in the mornings, and constantly being tired all the time, but afraid to fall asleep for fear of the bad dreams.
Hey, Darkrai doesn't intentionally give you nightmares. Gengar does.
This little bugger can ruin your life if you're not careful.
Please post your opinions about the most dangerous Pokemon(s) in your opinion.

Hacks are Pokemon too. If you believe hacks are Pokemon and don't deserve to be shunned because of what they are copy and paste this in your signature. Started by The_Shuppeteer_.
Ash: "Hey Pikachu, what happened? I ran to go take a piss and Mewtwo and Mew attacked me."
Misty: So that was what you were doing??!
