With the pokedex number of 493, this Pokemon is essentially Arceus and fully intends to let the power get to his head.
Post here when a particularly suprising or saddening death occurs, whether they be a celebrity or a figure in your own life.

For example, R.I.P. Russi Taylor, the voice of Minnie Mouse and Martin Prince, among many other characters.

Everyone knows we have to acknowledge Cameron Boyce— Disney Channel actor on Jessie, Gamer's Guide, Descendants, along with a lot of other movies— although it's been a couple of weeks and I'm sure 90% of people already know.

Neil Peart, the legendary drummer and lyricist for the Canadian rock band Rush, died earlier this week at 67 of brain cancer. He will be missed, but his legacy will live on.

This Pokemon is too lazy too make any creative shit, and would sitting down like a sack of potatoes and play video games.
Not too long ago, Rick May, the voice of Soldier in Team Fortress 2 and Peppy in Star Fox 64, has passed away because of the COVID-19. As someone who's also part of the TF2 community, I'm truly saddened by the news. My condolences to his family and friends for losing a talented actor.

This Pokemon can sometimes be found meticulously editing and re-editing it's own content, never satisfied with the results.
Over the weekend we lost Chadwick Boseman, which came as a complete surprise...

Today, we also lost one of the greatest pitchers of the modern era and the best in Mets history in Tom Seaver.

It is not a great week so far.

Late, but we also lost two members of the St. Louis Cardinals community. You may know Lou Brock as the Hall of Fame former leader in stolen bases (only losing his title to Rickey Henderson). He died at 81.

The latest loss is Charles Peterson. A former first round pick of Pittsburgh, he didn't make an impact in the majors, but he was an excellent area scout whom everyone loved. His last signing was Jordan Walker, our first round pick this year.

May they rest in peace and power.

As if 2020 couldn't get any worse, Bob Gibson of the Cardinals just passed from pancreatic cancer. I'm so angry at this year. Beyond angry...and beyond sad. Fuck 2020.

Conchata Ferrell, an actress in several shows and probably known best for portraying Berta in Two and a Half Men, passed away a few days ago from cardiac arrest.

As if 2020 hasn't taken enough already, I just found out Kirby Morrow also died a few days ago. He lent his voice to characters in shows such as InuYasha, Death Note, Dragon Ball Z, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, and more, but I personally knew him as one of the characters in Stargate Atlantis and SGU, as well as his voice role in .hack//Roots.

Also, still can't get over Alex Trebek being gone, even though I knew it was coming sooner rather than later. Jeopardy will never be the same again...

David Prowse, the man who physically played Darth Vader (James Earl Jones provided the voice, but Prowse was the towering 6'6" Vader.) has died at 85.

Can 2020 just fuck off now?

I know it was a few days ago, but Australian actor Hugh Keays-Byrne, known for playing Toecutter in Mad Max and Immortan Joe in Fury Road (both main villains) had passed away at 73. He sure knew how to play the bad guy in those movies, because he stole the show in the films. And he also seemed like a nice guy behind the scenes.
