    It's October, and you all know what that means; time to grab that one fake skeleton you own out of the closet and put it somewhere in the house, order everything in Pumpkin Spice flavour, and change your new favourite colours to orange, purple, green, and black for 31 days. Hey, even Lake Valor's getting into the spoopy spirit with a butt-ton of events, but here's a little something that's more casual and I'm pretty sure everyone can participate in - talking about your favourite Spoopy Pokémon!
    (NOTE: This is not part of Oktoberfest, and there's no prizes, but just do it anyway.)

    The rules are simple; make a post with who your favourite Spoopy Pokémon is, and why. A Spoopy Pokémon can be of any type, but it must have something scary incorporated into its design or lore. For example, Gengar are spoopy because they're Ghost types, but Hypno are spoopy because they kidnap children.

    So, let's all share our favourite Spoopy Pokémon!
    This thread has honestly turned into a place to post cute gifs omg

    Mine's Haunter. The design of the face is spoopy and gives me chills!

    My favourite Spoopy Pokémon is his little cutie - Phantump!

    [​IMG]

    It's design is both spoopy and cute - the way it's eyes are designed gives me the chills, but it's also very smol and cute and a cinnamon roll. The shiny colours are also a bit spoopier than the regular colours - the white bark makes Phantump much more ghost-looking. What a lot of people don't know about Phantump is there's an aspect to its design that make it very spoopy - its lore.

    It's Pokédex entries in Pokémon X and Y tell a very sad tale about how Phantump came to be. "These Pokémon are created when spirits possess rotten tree stumps. They prefer to live in abandoned forests. According to old tales, these Pokémon are stumps possessed by the spirits of children who died while lost in the forest." The entry in Pokémon X outlines how Phantump are created when spirits possess rotten tree stumps, but the Pokémon Y entry specifically states that the spirits are those of children who died while lost in the forest. If that isn't spoopy, I don't know what is. As a side note, this concept of tree spirits is something known in Japan as "kodama". If you recognise the name, it's because the little tree spirits in the Studio Ghibli film, Princess Mononoke, are also called "kodama".​

    I'm going to pick Reuniclus! It looks like a cute little stuffed animal, but instead of stuffing, it's made of goo! It is like a kawaii bubble frankenstein Pokémon.

    Its shiny colors are also one of my top favorites.

    My fav is Sableye! These rock-eating gremlins and their toothy grin. While I find them cute instead of scary, I wouldn't want to run into them if I get lost in a dark cave. Those sharp teeth and claws would make quick work of unlucky explorers!

    Omega Ruby Dex Entry:
    Sableye lead quiet lives deep inside caverns. They are feared, however, because these Pokémon are thought to steal the spirits of people when their eyes burn with a sinister glow in the darkness.

    My favorite spooky Pokémon is... Rotom! I love that this little guy has a unique typing in Electric/Ghost, and also has access to some pretty awesome alternate forms as well (Rotom-Wash for the win!!! ;) ) I have a shiny Rotom in ORAS and it was absolutely killer in battle (not to mention it looked awesome XD)

    Saaaaame for me. Heck, one of the Pokémon in my signature is a Phantump. Cute and spooky is my aesthetic. Speaking of which...

    I also really like Mimikyu.

    Because 1: It's cute as heck and wants to be loved.
    And 2: It apparently can give you a heart attack if you look under its disguise because of how terrifying it is. Yeah... XD

    My favorite one is the ghost of frozen landscapes, Froslass. It's easy to love its simple yet elegant design, and it being based on japanese lore just makes it better.

    Shedinja. One of my favourite Pokémon from the 3rd-generation, it likes to steal the souls of those who look into the husk that Ninjask had crawled out of when it evolved through the hole in its back.

    Well, I've gotta go with Sableye. It's nasty little grin, and creepy movements are some of the creepiest things I've seen in a ghost Pokémon! ahaha

    Hmmm, I wonder...

    Mine is Gengar, the original spoopy Pokémon. I appreciate how powerful it is and there are very few of my Pokémon teams that won't have a Gengar on them. Plus the Pokédex entries for them tend to be super spooky. Case in point:

    "Should you feel yourself attacked by a sudden chill, it is evidence of an approaching Gengar. There is no escaping it. Give up." (Sun)

    "It apparently wishes for a traveling companion. Since it was once human itself, it tries to create one by taking the lives of other humans." (Moon)

    The Moon entry in particular goes from cool to 2SPOOPY real quick.

    Banette! I always love hearing about haunted dolls and toys and that’s exactly what Banette is.

    I suppose Zubat can be qualified as spoopy because it's a bat with big nom fangs? That might be a bit of a reach, but I love it nonetheless. Other than Zubat, I really like Haunter. It's so spoopy, the word 'haunt' is in its name! I always found it looked much scarier than the floof ball that is Gastly and the chubby huggable Gengar.

    Midnight Lycanroc. It counts, right? I mean it is based on a werewolf, and werewolves are common 'horror' creatures in popular culture.
    [​IMG]
    Anyways, Midnight Lycanroc is one of my favourite mons, and has been since it's reveal. I'm usually not a fan of 'edgy' Pokémon, but Midnight Lycanroc is too awesome and full of character not to love. It's such a cool Pokémon and I love how much personality it has in game. Like that "bring it on/come at me bruh" motion it does with its hands in battle.
    [​IMG]
    Oh, and did I mention it has an awesome shiny? Because it does. Even better, it was my first shiny in Sun! Caught via random encounter as well!
