Despite the fact that Pokemon is a kid's game, there never fails to be a few somewhat disturbing instances in the game. We probably all remember Lavender Town, the Cubone's dead mother's ghost and the fact Cubone is wearing the skull of the aforementioned dead mother. That's just one disturbing instance, but...
I was reading Yamask's Pokedex entries just a few minutes ago and I am actually pretty creeped out by then, which is saying something since I'm not usually creeped out by kid's stories. But the Pokedex states that Yamask is 'a spirit of a dead person, it retains memories of its last life, it carries a mask that used to be its face and it sometimes looks at it cries.' No need to explain why that's just a bit disturbing...
But Yamask's design actually isn't very creepy, it's too cartoony, but I've actually been picturing it looking more realistic; a more realistic spirit from beyond the graves, a more realistic mask with a more realistic face, an actual dead person... I mean, can you imagine a Yamask with Michael Jackson's or Amy Winehouse's face as its mask?
So anyhow... Discuss any other disturbing Pokemon or instances you might have come across.
