Pokemon Animation Shows What A Magnemite Encounter Would Look Like In A Horror Movie

Horror and video games are two things that are often linked. In fact, the horror genre in gaming is full of notable titles, such as Resident Evil Village and Chernobylite, to name a few recent additions. While there are plenty of games that fall into this category, one series that is often not associated with horror is Pokemon. However, an animator decided to change that by creating a video featuring Magnemite, an unusually designed Pokémon.

As part of the original Gen 1, Magnemite has been a part of the franchise for a long time. However, its longevity in the series doesn’t make this Electric/Steel-type Pokemon’s design any less eye-catching. The Pokémon has a gray coloring and features large horseshoe magnets on opposite sides of its spherical body. Adding to this peculiar appearance, Magnemite has a large cyclops-like eye surrounded by several screws. Given this design, it’s not hard to see why a TikTok user named Revival decided to have this star Pokemon in their horror video.
