The PokÚdex - Extended Fanon Edition:

 6151 Juice Box Hero, Tue, 4th Oct '11 1:11:27 PM from the butthole of Texas

Okay! It's just that this thing is a floating tapir that expels surreal dream-stuff; its first form has flowers all over it and its second form keeps blowing what looks like hookah smoke everywhere.

How can that not be seen as a hippie Pokemon?

In terms of notable biology, even a token attempt at explaining how they metabolise dreams would be cool. Stating that they do is nice, but an explanation is always more interesting.

In Hazards, you may want to mention that this line is very durable, and difficult to defeat if aggravated, but they would probably have sluggish reflexes.

Excellent suggestions both.

But fuck, I have no idea how dream-digestion would actually work. Or what the nutritional value of a dream is.

I'd assume that a good dream would be better for a Munna than say, a nightmare or night terror, which of course makes me wonder what would happen if you manage to get fed on by a Munna while under the sleep paralysis caused by night terrors.

What do you think of my idea, though?

Also, do Munna have any relation to Darkrai or have any similarities?

That is an amazing idea! You should mention that in the article!

Your army sucks.
Darkrai should be a complete anathema to them. It's essentially living dream poison.
Sorry, I can't hear you from my FLYING METAL BOX!

I'll be adding Sawk to my Throh article, making it a Sawk and Throh article.

Ideas for the Mankey article:

Also, what's the official stance on Psychic types and their ability (or lack thereof) to communicate in human language?

It depends on the species. The Abra line is capable for instance of communicating through telepathy.

[down] EDIT: Oh right, forgot about that.

I try to keep relation to legendaries separate from "regular" Pokemon articles, though Darkrai would be horrible for a poor little Munna. And Musharna's sprite convinces me that the dreams are pooped through that little pink blowhole thing on the snout.

Totally going to keep the thing about them being related to Drowzee and Hypno though. Both are tapir-like Psychic Pokemon that eat dreams and are kind of freaky. Munna just evolves differently and is pink.

Definitely going to update the Hazards section. Also, the reproduction, social and diet sections were influenced by real-life tapirs, which are solitary herbivorous creatures who usually mate in or near bodies of water, and are docile unless provoked.

EDIT: Slowpoke and Slowbro can't because derp, but Slowking can.

I had an idea once- what if, in the Pokemon universe, the Pokemon games are just that: Games about the Pokemon. That would explain why some of the stuff in the actual Pokedex is so bad. Also, what if some of the more ridiculous aspects of it (e.g. the legendaries, certain moves, etc.) are also made up for the games? I doubt this could fit well with the established PEFE canon, but it's an interesting thought.

[up][up]In the collective headcanon I have for fanworks and such, things like the PC storage system and HMs don't exist since I assumed it was a case of Gameplay and Story Segregation, and the legendaries are just that—legends—or at least a case of Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane.

But PEFE has its own rules, and I'm inclined to follow those instead when writing articles for it.

[up]Or maybe they CAN use telepathy but their messages are always too late to be useful.

About dream metabolizing. I just had a thought. Munna's Dream Mist is a mysterious substance that induces sleep: what if it's something like concentrated dreams?

What if all dreaming creatures exude a nearly imperceptible amount of Dream Mist as they sleep, and that is the physical substance that Drowzee and Munna eat? As Psychic types, they'd be better able to percieve it, since it's created by a certain mental state. That's why Munna and Musharna constantly emit the stuff; its concentrated form could be called a waste product from the metabolization process, and if it's nearly all they eat...

YES THAT'S WHAT I SAID THEY POOP DREAMS grin

That actually makes a lot of sense, though IDK if anyone else would be cool with it.

[up]x6: You should still put something in about a legendary creature that is said to be deadly to Munna.

I'd be good with it. Giving a physical component to the intangible substance they eat would both make their diet make sense, and explain Dream Mist. I think that their Dream Mist is basically dreams after they've been stripped of everything that they want. That is, it takes the actual particulars of the dream away, and leaves us with a mist that does nothing but induce sleep.

Would Darkrai cause harm to Munna by just being around, or would it have to be asleep? I'm thinking the effects are along the line of sickening or poisoning...

I'll probably have the edited article by Sunday or Monday, because school.

Well, with Black and White we can't exactly call the PC system GaSS anymore considering Team Plasma succeeded in hacking it at the end of the game.

Well, Darkrai turns dreams into nightmares just by being around. Nightmares are unpalatable to Munna, if I recall correctly, so if it were to be around a Munna/Musharna that has fed recently, the dreams in its stomach would probably "spoil" inside them. The condition would probably be similar to food poisoning.

What exactly did Team Plasma hack? I only see "into the PC system" or something, that could simply mean the storage/transport backend of a physical transfer system. I don't really see much issue here — all previous canons do show that operations at PokÚcenters are handled by computer.

 6174 Juice Box Hero, Wed, 5th Oct '11 10:49:02 AM from the butthole of Texas

Poor cutie patooties...

I took the "being sick from eating bad dreams" part from Drowzee's canon Dex entries, since I figured the similar diets would mean Munna probably also has that problem.

Team Plasma was going to use the PC system to cause mass releases of Pokemon into the wild from countless trainer's Boxes.
