A Few More Weird Pokedex Entrees

Recently we had a list of five of some of the most stand out Pokedex entries from Pokemon Sun and Moon. Well, we felt that five just wasn’t enough so we grabbed three more to share with you that we felt were some really well-written entries.



Muk got a lot of love for its new Alolan form, but the Pokedex entry leads one to believe Muk may need some help to stick around. The Moon Pokedex entry reads:

” After recent environmental improvements, this Pokémon is now hardly seen at all. People speculate that it may go extinct at some point. ”

It’s odd to imagine what a nature reserve built to sustain a Muk population would look like, but hopefully the world of Pokemon gets on that soon!



Crabrawler is arguably one of the funnier crab Pokemon designs there are, but according to their Pokedex entries they share a similar fate with Slowpoke. The Moon Pokedex entry reads:

” It punches so much, its pincers often come off from overuse, but they grow back quickly. What little meat they contain is rich and delicious. ”

So basically Crabrawlers run around punching things until their hands fall off, and the hands they leave behind are delicious treats for whoever finds them. Slowpoke tails and Crabrawler claws may make a fantastic soup together.



The Sandcastle Pokemon was initially met with some criticism from fans for being another silly Ghost concept. However, Sandyghast proves to be a rather horrifying addition to the world of Pokemon. The Moon Pokedex entry reads:

” It takes control of anyone who puts a hand in its mouth. And so it adds to the accumulation of its sand-mound body. ”

So its a Pokemon that uses mind slaves to make it grow and eventually evolve into an even more horrifying monster. Maybe laughing at Sandyghast is a bad idea.


So there are three more great Pokedex entries from Sun and Moon. Are there any you liked that we’ve left out? Let us know in the comments below!

Pokemon Sun and Moon: 5 of The Best New Pokedex Entries

As we all travel through the new region of Alola in Pokemon Sun  and Moon we will surely be discovering a lot of new Pokemon and with them learning about the lore of the Pokemon world. Every generation is accompanied by a Pokedex full of new entries, both expanding on the information about our favorite Pokemon we’ve known for years and adding entries for the new friends were just gaining access to. So we’ve perused some of the new entries and picked 5 that stand out for various reasons and seem to add something interesting to the lore of the Pokemon world.

#5: Slowpoke


With this new generation, we get a response to the long-standing questions about how Slowpoke feels about people eating its tail. The answer is found in Sun’s Pokedex:

” Its long tail often breaks off. It doesn’t really feel any pain, though, and the tail grows back, so Slowpoke isn’t particularly bothered.”

So the new Pokedex entry confirms it, Slowpoke is totally OK with you eating its tail. Maybe those Team Rocket grunts from Gold and Silver weren’t so evil after all?


#4: Pyukumuku


Many Pokemon battle in strange ways using various parts of their body. Pyukumuku however, takes the strange to a whole new level. The entry from Sun’s Pokedex reads:

“It lives in shallow seas, such as areas near a beach. It can eject its internal organs, which it uses to engulf its prey or battle enemies.”

So it just sort of shoots it organs out to attack you. This is probably more effective as psychological warfare than anything else.


#3:Alolan Vulpix


Vulpix’s Alolan form switches its type to Ice, and apparently, it’s power transfers well into this form. The entry in Sun’s Pokedex explains further:

” It exhales air colder than -58 degrees Fahrenheit. Elderly people in Alola call this Pokemon by an older name-Keokeo.”

So Alolan Vulpix can potentially freeze things with its breath, and the older locals have a completely different name for it. This opens up some interesting details for lore speculators about Pokemon history.


#2: Toxapex


A new Pokemon this gen and the evolution of Mareanie, these Pokemon are predators to the adorable generation two’s Corsola. Although what makes their Pokedex entries interesting is the Moon entry:

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

So, what are the aftereffects? It’s interesting to wonder exactly what type of long term damage a poison could cause. It also must be a very well recorded incident of it poisoning people to know it takes exactly three days and nights for anyone afflicted.


#1: Araquanid


Everyone loves reading the disturbing side of Pokemon, and every generation introduces some dark Pokedex entries. This one is extra disturbing, because the entries contradict each other, leading it to seem like the new Pokemon Araquanid may be a sneaky monster. The Moon Pokedex entry reads:

” Despite what its appearance suggests, it cares for others. If it finds vulnerable, weak Pokémon, it protectively brings them into its water bubble. ”

That sounds lovely until you read Sun’s Pokedex entry:

” It delivers headbutts with the water bubble on its head. Small Pokemon get sucked into the bubble, where they drown. ”

Horrifying. But what’s worse is that whoever wrote the entries had to purposely put a hint in that Araquanid actually pretends to help weak Pokemon, only to actually kill them most likely for food. It’s dark, but it’s also an interesting thing to discover when comparing the versions and is a well-placed detail.

So, those are five of the most interesting Pokedex entries for Sun and Moon that we’ve seen so far. They, of course, are an opinion and grabbed our attention for different reasons and they’re definitely not the only interesting ones.

Pokémon GO Pokedex Case

Back in the nineties when Pokemon first swept the United States they released wave after wave of merchandise that found its way onto playgrounds all over the country. One of the most sought after was the Pokedex, a working version of Ash Ketchum’s first Pokedex was released that included an entry for all original 151 Pokémon and had stats, sounds, and unique animated sprites for each Pokémon. This toy was extremely popular because it made kids feel like they could really run around and catch Pokémon in the real world. Now, with the release of Pokémon GO it seems like the days of replica pokedexes would be over, but an Etsy user has defied that sentiment by making a phone case replica of the original Pokedex, so now with your Pokedex in hand you can really catch them all and fill Pokedex entries while feeling like you’ve really delved into the world of Pokémon!

The case itself looks fantastic, there’s a high level of detail and it does not come apart to wrap around your phone like most modern cases. Instead, this case allows a bottom piece to detach and your phone is slid into place and held by the same plate you removed. The case also has the option to have the logo of Valor, Mystic or Instinct on the front cover, or you can opt for a plain cover if you so choose. The latest version of the case also includes an aim assist or for throwing pokeballs. This is actually a slide you can unlatch from one side of the case and overlay on your phone’s screen to make throwing your pokeballs straight much easier. There are several cases that have this feature, but all of them seem to be fixed to the screen, so when not catching Pokémon the slide would be in your way, but this Pokedex case resolves that issue by allowing you to simply snap the slide back into the case cover.

The case is available on Etsy from the user AnimaSpiritus for $39.02USD. The version covered here is Mark 2, and actually hits at a fair price considering the cases are handmade. That also means there aren’t always a ton of them available so be sure to grab one before they get bought out or you may have to wait for more to be made before you can get yours!
