With Pokemon Go Blowing up, I figured I would break away from the horror shorts and the gore and bring you Pokémon's dark side. Here I have a quick list of 5 Pokémon with messed up backgrounds and daily activities. A lot of people do not bother to read what's written on the Pokedex or maybe, we all just did not care as young children with a brand new Pokémon game.

But Pokémon has always had a dark side and it's great. From the Lavender Town Song that allegedly caused people to kill, to the Black Cartridge game that let you kill trainers. Pokémon had never shied away from the dark. Well buckle up and enjoy this list. Lets get this bad boy started with one of my favorites!

1. Spoink

Cuddly, adorable, piggy looking Spoink. I would say this Pokemon looks harmless and cute. Let's look at his Pokemon ruby Pokedex description

Spoink bounces around on its tail. The shock of its bouncing makes its heart pump. As a result, this Pokémon cannot afford to stop bouncing – if it stops, its heart will stop.

Well crap! Not only can you never ever stop to cuddle this guy but, he will never be able to feel the warm love of his trainer cause if he does, boop! Its heart has stopped and now CPR must be performed and will become a huge mess.

2. Drifloon

I do not know any trainer who would not want a Pokémon that looks like a cute balloon.

It is whispered that any child who mistakes Drifloon for a balloon and holds on to it could wind up missing. It tugs on the hands of children to steal them away.

And never mind! If you're under the age of 18 make sure the balloon you grab is not a Drifloon. I feel it may take you to a witch in the forest to eat you. Just unlike the story we all know, apparently you do not come home.

3. Cubone

Everyone knows his story and it's a pretty sad one at that:

Wears the skull of its deceased mother. Its cries echo inside the skull and come out as a sad melody.

It's just a sad Pokémon with a sad beginning. And we like to capture it and force it to fight wearing the skull of its dead mom. Classy!

4. Mismagius

This one is a trip, literally. Just check out that pokedex description.

Its cries sound like incantations. Those hearing it are tormented by headaches and hallucinations.

imagine walking into a group of these things crying. Would you ever be able to find your way out of the location it's in? These could be used as a very savage form of torture.

5. Haunter

Ghost Pokémon have always been my favorite. I look forward to new ones every new game that comes out. Haunter is my second favorite. Just look at this description:

Its tongue is made of gas. If licked, its victim starts shaking constantly until death eventually comes.

A Pokemon that causes children and adults to convulse to death by licking them is terrifying . Imagine living in a town that is infested with these guys! I have seen some intense Pokémon but this one is one of my favorites.

I know it's a short list guys and thanks for reading.
