Gotta Catch ‘Em All 30 Day Pokémon Challenge – Day 6

Good morning Trainers. I hope you’ve brought some support with you today as we look at the Pokémon that I find the most terrifying. There are, of course, so many possible choices for this entry, but with some digging and reading around, I have decided my most terrifying Pokémon.

Despite my initial thought of Yamask and Cofagrigus, these are only spooky in certain circumstances (if you are a tomb robber, or perhaps Lara Croft). Instead, I choose Banette as my most terrifying Pokémon.

Why is Banette so terrifying? Well, firstly it’s a living doll – actually a living plush toy. It’s the Chucky of Pokémon world. A stuffed toy turned real as a result of the hatred burning inside. It reminds me, for some reason, of the Killer Krusty Doll from The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror III (an episode that gave me awful nightmares for a long time as a child). Banette has to keep its mouth zipped up else it loses life force and uses its own body as a voodoo doll to cause pain to others. Don’t abandon your stuffed toys people.

It’ll be safer to come out tomorrow as we flip the scary switch to the adorable setting. See you then!
