I was playing PokÃ©mon recently killing the time between classes on Fire Red. During a break I was reading through all the PokÃ©dex entries I had until I came to Cubone. The pokedex for Cubone in Fire Red reads as follows.
It wears the skull of its dead mother on its head. When it becomes lonesome, it is said to cry loudly.
I always thought it was weird that Cubone wears the skull of its dead mother. Yet, if you look at Marowak, the skull looks nothing like the one Cubone wears. To top it off the only PokÃ©mon that has a similar shaped skull to the one Cubone wears is either a Charizard or a Kangaskhan.
Kangaskhan are also the only PokÃ©mon that carries its young around, so it could be possible that if the mother dies the baby wears it’s skull… I may be looking to deeply into it, but I think it’s an interesting connection.
What do you guys think?
