    Default okay what is it

    http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-dp/442.shtml

    I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what the hell Mikaruge is supposed to be. It seems to be some kind of evil spirit in a vase (reminds me of that Yoshi's Island boss...), but I have no idea what that would mean. Anyone (particularly people who have played the game and caught it and speak Japanese) have any ideas? ;[

    Pokedex entry:

    442 Mikaruge
    D – A pokemon born from the assembly of 108 spirits. It is sealed in the cracks of the Crucial Stone.
    P – 500 years ago, it was sealed into the cracks of the Crucial Stone due to the bad things it did.

    It looks a like a Black Hole coming out of the Crucial Stone, imo.

    Does this mean anything to anyone, and does it help?

    The eight-headed monster Orochi consumed 108 sacrifices. This is the number of spirits that, according to its Pokédex data, are in Mikaruge. So Mikaruge is perhaps a sealed Orochi, as I`ve mentioned in another thread.

    I also like to mention Mikau's box sprite reminds me of a Beyblade.

    It's an evil cloud that absorbs the blood from it's victims while giving off a pleasant smell to draw them in.

    I feel like Poomo tonight.

    It looks like a ghastly on crack.
    How can one person be so endlessly disappointing?

    108 seems to show up a lot in Asian mythology, so it doesn't necessarily have to be linked with the Orochi

    Chinese astrology says there are 108 sacred stars
    Tibetan Buddhism says there are 108 sins, and there are other examples

    108 seems to just a good number to use when you're dealing with mystical/mythical concepts
