It happened one morning - a boy with extrasensory powers awoke in bed transformed into Kadabra. (FireRed)
I don't think there's anything more horrifying than this truly Kafka-esque nightmare scenario: a kid falls asleep only to wake up to discover that he's turned into a Pokemon. A Pokemon that is bound to be captured by other humans (unaware they're training someone's child) to fight against random monster-animals. But most horrifying of all - he's been transformed into a middle-evolution. That means one of two things:
- All Abras are horribly-deformed human children, and when it evolves into Kadabra, it has gone to sleep and awoken a monster.
- Every single Kadabra is a human child, who has somehow switched places with Abras, who have taken over the child's human bodies.
And - perhaps most terrifying of all - unless the child/Kadabra is traded, he will never evolve and get that additional spoon.
It remembers every dream it eats. It rarely eats the dreams of adults because children's are much tastier. (Silver)
It's miraculous that, in the world of Pokemon, the Pokemon haven't risen up and destroyed every vestige of humanity. In fact, they really barely touch humans at all. One that does seem to, though, is Drowzee, which apparently wanders around neighborhoods and eats the dreams of children. Specifically children. And when the dreams of children are gone, they can only be replaced with nightmares. Although when you live in a world where psychic tapirs are devouring your dreams, it's hard to imagine anything more nightmareish than that.
The spirits it absorbs fuel its baleful fire. It hangs around hospitals waiting for people to pass on. (Black 2)
Much of the afterlife is a mystery in the world of Pokemon: Pokemon never really "die" in the game, only faint (with a few notable exceptions) - yet there's an entire category of Ghost-type Pokemon. But humans present the biggest question - there don't appear to be any human graveyards, almost no human hospitals...what's happening there? Well, since lamp-Pokemon are stealing human souls and using them as fuel to burn their ever-present flames, maybe it makes sense that humans don't wanna think about the afterlife. Also, these things hang out around hospitals, waiting for people to die (to, ya know, STEAL THEIR ETERNAL SOUL AND USE IT AS COAL). No wonder hospitals are so scarce.
