So a long time ago, when I was much more into creepypastas and was active on this site, I had made a blog post called "Something Very Ironic" about an experience which I had when I was about seven years old. The irony was that it sounded so much like a "Lost Episode" pasta that I actually had to specify that it wasn't, since you can't post pastas in blogs. Long story short, I watched something about a giant bird chasing children which creeped me out when I was that little and could only remember it vaguely ever since then, to the point that I wasn't sure if I had really watched it on TV or if my imagination had fabricated the images.

My first guess, and probably the most likely reason, would be that Pokemon is something that is associated with the innocence of childhood, and thus is interesting to corrupt.
