    honestly most of the sunmoon dex entries have taken it up to eleven in terms of hilarity and weirdness

    I figured it should be time to actually share Dex entries for real. One I'd love to start with is Lampent.

    White / Y / Alpha Sapphire: It arrives near the moment of death and steals spirit from the body.

    B2W2 / X / Omega Ruby: The spirits it absorbs fuel its baleful fire. It hangs around hospitals waiting for people to pass on.

    You do have to admit the mention of references to death is grim. Sun & Moon, as mentioned is known for its dark and grim Pokedex entries but I feel this was really where Game Freak were going into dark territory.

    Lot of weird ones in S/M. I'm almost inclined to think it's just Rotom trolling at times. A few favorites:

    Primeape (Sun): It has been known to become so angry that it dies as a result. Its face looks peaceful in death, however.

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

    That one has to be a standout because it is a notable example of S/M's extremely grim Pokedex entries. I was saying to myself "what were Game Freak smoking" when they came up with this one, especially since I hate death being portrayed in a positive light like what the Dex entry said.

    A lot of entries also refer to certain pokemon feeding on said pokemon. Like Weavile feeding on Vulpix and Sandshrew for example. I don't think it was ever mentioned as much as it is in Sun/Moon.

      Wow, Rotom, way to insult your electric brethren right there. :P

      Ones I definitely have to mention are ones that totally don't match up with a Pokemon's stats, like these ones here.

      Escavalier (Black): They fly around at high speed, striking with their pointed spears. Even when in trouble, they face opponents bravely.

      Vikavolt (Sun): It zips around, on sharp lookout for an opening. It concentrates electrical energy within its large jaws and uses it to zap its enemies.

      Game Freak, did you forget how slow these Pokemon actually were?

      Accelgor's Pokédex entry confuses me for the fact that it only has a base stat Speed of 20??

      Gourgeist is a great Pokémon but the Pokédex entry in Y is creepy af.

      Lol... Accelgor is 145 base Speed. You were thinking of Escavalier.

      Oh well, here's some that suggest a Pokemon would learn a certain move but they don't.

      Scrafty (Black): Groups of them beat up anything that enter their territory. Each can spit acidic liquid from its mouth.

      Uh, it doesn't learn Beat Up.

      Ampharos (Gold/LG/HG/X/Y) The tip of its tail shines brightly. In the olden days, people sent signals using the tail's light.

      Ampharos (Silver/FR/SS) The bright light on its tail can be seen far away. It has been treasured since ancient times as a beacon.

      And yet the reason why you can't use Tail Glow is because the move is actually "Firefly Light".

      Umbreon (Moon): With its black fur, it blends into the darkness. It bides its time, and when prey appears, this Pokémon goes for its throat, and then eats it.

      Eeek! I know 7th Gen has creepy ones, but this one is outright cannibalism.

      I always get those two names mixed up, but yes. Definitely doesn't match up though.

      Tsareena (Moon): A Pokémon known for the beauty of its well-shaped legs, it sometimes appears as a mascot in advertisements for beauty salons.

      Tsareena (Sun): Its long, striking legs aren't just for show but to be used to kick with skill. In victory, it shows off by kicking the defeated, laughing boisterously.

      A clear sign Game Freak want you to look at those legs, because she's got dem legs.

      Primarina (Moon): Its singing voice is its chief weapon in battle. This Pokémon's Trainer must prioritize the daily maintenance of its throat at all costs.

      So basically, losing your voice also means losing the ability to fight. Poor thing.

      I actually really like a lot of the Gen 7 ones because they give the impression of there being an actual Pokémon ecosystem + predator/prey chain, which was something that has never really been brought up before as far as I know.

        Wishiwashi-School (Moon): At their appearance, even Gyarados will flee. When they team up to use Water Gun, its power exceeds that of Hydro Pump.

        What the heck? You think a group of Pokemon using a 40 BP move would be the same as just one Pokemon using a 110 BP move?

        The Pokédex entries for Mareanie & Toxapex are a bit unsettling to me aha ..

        Mareanie (Moon): It's found crawling on beaches and seafloors. The coral that grows on Corsola's head is as good as a five-star banquet to this Pokémon.
        Toxapex (Sun): Toxapex crawls along the ocean floor on its 12 legs. It leaves a trail of Corsola bits scattered in its wake
        They really love their Corsola :(
        Toxapex (Moon):Those attacked by Toxapex's poison will suffer intense pain for three days and three nights. Post-recovery, there will be some aftereffects.
        ----what type of aftereffects ??

        Mudsdale's is kinda funny but interesting
        Mudsdale (Sun): It spits a mud that provides resistance to both wind and rain, so the walls of old houses were often coated with it.
        Imagine your house being made out with Mudsdale spit lol

        I find this one cute:

        Cleffa (Moon) - Because of its silhouette, it’s believed to be a star reborn. For some reason, it loves Minior.

        And an interesting one:

        Dratini (Moon) - After a 10-hour struggle, a fisherman was able to pull one up and confirm its existence. {XD}

        Metagross (Sun) - It firmly pins its prey using its four claws and large body. Then the teeth in the mouth on its stomach chew the prey to bits.

        That's some really weird anatomy, I suppose. Or it's just its normal mouth, but worded poorly? I dunno, but I too like how Sun/Moon emphasise the fact that Pokemon are capable of eating other Pokemon.

          Turtonator from Moon: ""It gushes fire and poisonous gases from its nostrils. Its dung is an explosive substance and can be put to various uses."

          Dung is basically waste or feces iirc. In other words, its bodily waste can cause explosions.

          "Magcargo's body temperature is approximately 18,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Water is vaporized on contact. If this Pokémon is caught in the rain, the raindrops instantly turn into steam, cloaking the area in a thick fog."

          "Regice cloaks itself with frigid air of -328 degrees Fahrenheit. Things will freeze solid just by going near this Pokémon. Its icy body is so cold, it will not melt even if it is immersed in magma."

          A Pokémon that is hotter than the surface of the sun or a Pokémon that is as cold as the average temperature on Neptune. Take your pick.

          And yet Magcargo is 4x weak to Water-type moves such as Bubble.

          I came to this thread for ROM hacking inspiration. I can definitely do some work with Turtonator's explosive feces.

            Pokemon Ultra Sun- Drampa: If it has made friends with is bullied, Drampa will find the bully's house and burn it to the ground.
