Why have a pokédex at all? None of the dex entries have any real baring on the plot of the games or your ability to play it.
Because it’s world-building. And sometimes part of world-building is exploring the darker elements of things that happen. I like to think a lot of the entries, though, are more legend and mythology than fact. After all - none of the Yamasks look any different from one another, yet the face is supposed to be the face of the human they were when they died.
so tired of hearing people STILL complain about vanillite/vanillish/vanilluxe
sorry your life is so devoid of joy that you can’t enjoy cute ice cream pokemon
