30 Days of Pokemon
Day 01 - Favorite Pokemon
After much deliberation, I've picked the very adorable, if slightly disturbing Cubone. And not just any Cubone, my Cubone Yorick (and if you don't know where I got the name, I wash my hands of you).
I debated removing the blood layer, but I decided I liked it more, hoping to give him more of a ruthless battler persona.
Besides, Cubones have a fairly dark pokedex entry - what with the wearing of the skulls of the mothers and all. I always figured that Cubones were motherless Kangaskhans (as per popular theory), and that they chewed through the head and ripped the skull right out of the fresh corpse... I mean c'mon is there protocol to this kind of thing? Is the defenseless baby kangaskhan/cubone just supposed to sit there and keen for days while his mother decomposes to get the skull and bone? I think not!
