The image above is from Pokemon: Origins. specifically the flashback scene that shows how Cubone’s mother died.

But do you see the problem here?

It always wears the skull of its dead mother, so no one has any idea what its hidden face looks like.

-Cubone Pokedex entry.


So… What the fuck, right?
How can Cubone be wearing the skull of it’s dead mother when it’s mother is clearly still alive in this scene?
And they make it very clear that the Marowak in this scene is the mother of that Cubone.

Well, when it comes right down to it, this is just a major screw up on the part of the writers, or maybe the animators. this scene could have been handled better. perhaps have the entire scene shown from Cubone’s POV, so as to avoid actually showing Cubone, but also implying that he doesn’t have his skull helmet on. because, as it has been well established, the skull it wears belongs to it’s dead mother. the mother who is still alive in this scene.

Whoa, mad facts about Marowak!

Marowak clearly has a hard head, and also, through examination, it clearly is not wearing a skull like Cubone. the white rigid portions are it’s actual head.
Looking at it’s gen 4 back sprite, you can clearly see that the white skull is one unit, and not something that is being worn. in fact (with the exception of it’s horrendous gen 1 back sprite), all of Marowak’s sprites clearly show the white “Skull” as a single unit.

It shows flexibility in the jaw area, indicating that the lower portion of it’s head may be soft, while the upper portion seems to be hard and rigid.

Head Canon: The upper part of Marowak’s head, which is clearly hard and rigid, does not grow with the body, and must be shed as the Pokemon grows.
THAT is what Cubone is actually wearing in this scene. not it’s mother’s actual skull, but rather a discarded layer of it’s mother’s rigid head shell thing.




When people compare the greatness that is The Simpsons to other animated shows like Family Guy it makes me want to set myself on fire

I went on a date last year and jokingly said “Don’t ask me I’m just a girl” and giggled at a 35 year old man thinking he’d get the reference and instead he said “that’s what I like to hear.”

I was going to reblog again anyway, but I do it also for the above comment.
