There is a lot on the internet about unexpectedly creepy Pokemon (though, considering it’s mostly Ghost types and it’s pretty well established that their Pokedex descriptions sound like, well, ghost stories, I’m not sure why anyone considers it unexpected by now), but have you ever noticed that there are a couple that are just surprisingly gross? And I mean surprisingly, so I’m not talking about Poison types like Garbodor.
This is Cubchoo.
It has a snotcicle, but aside from that it’s a cute polar bear cub, right? You’d think it would basically be adorable until it evolves into the much more formidable looking Beartic.
Well, here’s Cubchoo’s Pokedex description in Pokemon White and in Pokemon X:
It’s nose is always running. It sniffs the snot back up because the mucus provides the raw material for its moves.
Yep, that’s right, when Cubchoo uses Brine, it’s not tears, or sweat, or even spit; it’s snot. And when it uses Blizzard? Frozen snot.
Cubchoo is gross.
