Pokemon's Ten Most Disturbing Pokedex Entries

Pokemon's Ten Most Disturbing Pokedex Entries
Last week, Pokemon Black and White were finally released in America as the two latest installments of the long-running video game franchise. 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. Okay, okay, admittedly: It’s a game made for children about adorable monsters who are sent out to fight each other for the enjoyment of their owners like gladiators battling at the pleasure of a ten year-old Caligula. That’s why today, ComicsAlliance is wandering through the tall grass to bring you the Ten Most Disturbing (and Completely Official) Entries in the Pokedex! 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: Related:  Humor

The Best of Socially Awkward Penguin From the hive mind that brought you Family Tech Support Guy comes Socially Awkward Penguin. He’s a penguin. He’s socially awkward. We’re betting you’re somewhere in between. But wait, there’s more: Advice Animals on Reddit — Alcoholic Alligator is waiting for you.Family Tech Support Guy — CTRL F? Super creepy Pokémon hack - Tiny Cartridge I stumbled on this unsettling story of an obscure Pokémon bootleg/art-hack that I thought might be neat to share on here. I think this originated from 4chan, so I’ve no idea if this hack actually exists. It probably doesn’t, but it’s still a great concept/tale!: I’m what you could call a collector of bootleg Pokémon games. They’re generally fun; even if they are unplayable (which they often are), the mistranslations and poor quality make them unintentionally humorous. I’ve been able to find most of the ones that I’ve played online, but there’s one that I haven’t seen any mention of. Here’s a picture of the cartridge, in case anyone recognizes it. The game started with the familiar Nidorino and Gengar intro of Red and Blue version. Upon selecting “New Game”, the game started the Professor Oak speech, and it quickly became evident that the game was essentially Pokémon Red Version. The Pokémon was level 1. The implication was that the Pokémon died. Then a sprite of a Caterpie appeared.

Comments comments How to Catch Mew in Pok駑on Red/Blue/Yellow Yes, believe it or not, it can be done without a GameShark or other cheating device. Here's what you'll need to do: Once you've caught Mew, you can save your game without any ill-effects. There are two alternative ways to enter Route 8 and trigger Mew after beating the Youngster. If you have access to Saffron City, you can fly there and go through the eastern city gate. Also, you can fly to Celadon City, head east to Route 7, enter the Underground Path, and emerge back in front of the Gambler. Finally, the Route 8 Gambler isn't the only trainer that can initiate the trick. Thanks to TheScythe from the GameFAQs message boards for the information on how to do this. You can also get detailed information on how this trick works, as well as how it can be used to catch any Pokémon in the game. You can download save files from the start of this procedure to use on a GameBoy emulator here. If you're not a geek, you don't wank to read this. :) How to Catch Any Pokémon

Awkward Stock Photos Chris vs. Pokémon, Volume One #126: Magmar Oh now what is this bullshit? According to Bulbapedia, Magmar here has characteristics of both a salamander–the one from the Monster Manual, not the one from science class–and a duck, and that is just fantastic. Big ups to whatever mad elder god responsible for this world of junior-league cockfights decided it would be a good idea to combine an elemental fire lizard with nature’s least threatening creature. Great job. I mean, look at this guy, it’s like he was assembled from spare parts, capped off with the forehead of Exeter from This Island Earth . You’re a biter, Magmar. #288: Vigoroth Vigoroth was a sadistic tyrant of Carpathia, a kingdom located in the Carpathian Mountains in central Romania. No, wait… sorry, that was Vigo the Carpathian. #279: Pelipper Jeez! Unless… oh man. #62: Poliwrath Now this is more like it. First off, his name: It means many angers. And he wears gloves.

Twitter Parodies: 9 Top Literary Fakes It might be considered surprising that a platform that limits its users to 140 characters has so many literary-themed accounts. Our favorite of these are the parody accounts, spoofing famous authors from beyond the grave. For the purposes of entertainment and inspiration, we've pulled together our best-of selection. Although there are many accounts that just push out the written word of authors, we've focussed on those that comment and engage using a particular author's voice. SEE ALSO: Top Fictional Accounts | Top Fake Celebs | Top Social Media & Tech Spoofs Take a look through the slideshow below for our favorites and suggest in the comments any we've missed.
