Paranormal Pop Culture: Sableye the Pokemon


The Pokemon character Sableye is reportedly based on the creatures seen between Kelly and Hopkinsville in 1955.  Sableye's appearance and movements are meant to mimic the goblin-like entities encountered in Kentucky that year; with large, shining eyes, small legs, clawed arms, and a swaying gait that matches the descriptions given by eyewitnesses.  Weird tales of monsters have influenced more than a few of the Japanese "pocket monsters," so pay attention to see if you can "catch'em all."
