30 Days of Pokemon: Day 2

Day 02: Most terrifying Pokemon


For a brief while (before Pikachu's overexposure became all too obvious) this guy held the title of my least favorite Pokemon. I'll be honest - my IRL experience with dogs probably has something to do with my dislike for Arcanine. Not only am I deathly allergic to dogs, but several of my (less upstanding) family members have owned some very poorly trained dogs that have come after me (and others). One even bit me in the rear end, which fortunately didn't cause any adverse reaction. Otherwise I would have been dead for over a decade now.

Still, Arcanine just has that look of a vicious, snarling beast that looks like it would enjoy savagely ripping people apart. I can't fathom why NONE of the evil team leaders haven't had one of these in their rosters (or why a protagonist would use one - see B2/W2 trailer). It looks like an evil Pokemon tailor-made for guys like Ghetsis, and especially Maxie (Archie, not so much though xD).

    Arcanine isn't an "evil" Pokémon like Mightyena and Zubat, because they are supposed to be terrifyingly majestic, if you can wrap your mind around such a concept.

    …Majestic beast, I suppose.

    Yes, I happen to know that concept, the attitude is not necessary or appreciated. Raikou fits that description. So does Braviary. Arcanine does not, it's about as "majestic" as your average zombie. It's just a big hairy mass of rage and ugly. At least IMO.

    Of course, it's also my opinion that Pikachu is the ultimate "evil" Pokemon, so you can run with that however you wish.

    I never pictured Zubat as evil either xD
