It’s something I’ve been looking forward to since it was announced, to the point where I’ve been reading through the Pokedex — the official in-game database that describes all 649 Pokemon — and in doing so, I’ve discovered something: For a game made for children about adorable monsters, there’s a lot of really disturbing stuff in Pokemon.

At first glance, it doesn’t look like there could possibly be anything creepy about Delibird. Here’s what the Pokedex has to say about Delibird:
