Creepy Pokémon Countdown gets spookier with Shedinja for Halloween 2017

Pokémon come in all shapes and sizes…and especially demeanors. Some Pokémon are friendly and cuddly. Some Pokémon are bold and brave. And some Pokémon strike fear into the hearts of every creature that gets in their way! Don’t take our word for it—you can find out just how sinister these Pokémon are by looking them up in your in-game Pokédex. Now that it’s Halloween season, The Pokémon Company is shining the flashlight on these creepy Pokémon throughout the month of October. Every day, it will be revealing its picks for the most eerie and frightening Pokémon, and sharing a quote from the Pokédex that supports their delightfully terrifying reputation.

“Its actual appearance is unknown. A scholar who saw what was under its rag was overwhelmed by terror and died from the shock.” – Pokémon Sun

“It loves the crying of children. It startles bad kids by passing through walls and making them cry.” – Pokémon Black

“Those attacked by Toxapex’s poison will suffer intense pain for three days and three nights. Post-recovery, there will be some aftereffects.” – Pokémon Moon

17. YOU SNOOZE, YOU LOSE (Shiinotic)
“It emits flickering spores that cause drowsiness. When its prey succumb to sleep, this Pokémon feeds on them by sucking in their energy.” – Pokémon Moon

“Each of them carries a mask that used to be its face when it was human. Sometimes they look at it and cry.” – Pokémon Alpha Sapphire

15. TRICKS, NOT TREATS (Misdreavus)
“It loves to bite and yank people’s hair from behind without warning, just to see their shocked reactions.” – Pokémon SoulSilver

14. FROSTY FEAST (Glalie)
“Glalie has the ability to freely control ice. For example, it can instantly freeze its prey solid. After immobilizing its prey in ice, this Pokémon enjoys eating it in leisurely fashion.” – Pokémon Alpha Sapphire

13. LOST AT SEA (Jellicent)
“The fate of the ships and crew that wander into Jellicent’s habitat: all sunken, all lost, all vanished.” – Pokémon Alpha Sapphire

12. DON’T PEEK! (Shedinja)
“Shedinja’s hard body doesn’t move—not even a twitch. In fact, its body appears to be merely a hollow shell. It is believed that this Pokémon will steal the spirit of anyone peering into its hollow body from its back.” – Pokémon Omega Ruby
