The History of Cubone and Marowak
So, ever wonder why Cubone looks like a baby Kangaskan? It's true, they look very similar! But, do you know the whole story? No? Then read on and find out.
One day, in a remote Kangaskan village, a young Kangaskan was born. It was small and could not live without its mother, like all young Kangaskan. It rode within its mother's pouch and was able to experience the world in that way. However, just five months into its lifespan, a group of poachers attacked its clan. Many Kangaskan were slain, including this paticular baby Kangaskan's mother. Sad and unable to get opver the loss, it donned its mother's skull and began searching for a place to belong.
As it searched, it kept its head hidden behind the skull of its mother, never daring to remove the only symbol of its parent. Originally from the grasslands, it roamed all across the planet in its search for a place to stay, eventually settling in a savannah desert. Resting, it decided to name the place as home and like all creatures, began to adapt to its new surroundings.
First, the skull it was so proud of began to stick. The sun's rays began to melt it on tightly, so that it became a super glued on, unable to be removed. Then, its skin coloring changed from a light purple to a dusty brown. Eventually, it even adapted a new call. Hearing other Pokemon, it soon started to repeat the phrase "Cu" over and over again. Nobody knows where "Cu" came from or what it meant, but the young Pokemon seemed to like it for whatever reason.
As it searched the ground one day, it came across a bone. recognizing it as such, it picked it up and shouted "Cu! Bone! Bone Cu! Cu Bone! Cu Bone! Cubone!" And so it was named such by Pokemon trainers who would encounter it. However, it was an angry Pokemon and it escaped capture every time. It could not allow itself to be captured. It would not allow such.
As it reached a teenager stage, it evolved again. The skull began to morph and expanded to fit the bigger Pokemon. Unsatisfied with its smaller bone, it soon traded it in for a sturdier and bigger bone. And with its evolution, its speach was also altered. Cubone turned into Marobone very quickly. However, that was soon to change. Taking the slang from a trainer that was trying to catch it, it bellowed "Marowak!" loudly for the world to hear. It seemed proud of its name.
As it reached adulthood, it wandered across the biomes once again, searching for its villiage. Finding it after a few years, it encountered a mate and had children that resembled the original Cubone. Each had a miniature skull on its head and each picked up a bone, yelling "Cubone" as loud as they could. Happy at last, for a change, it settled down. Until more Poachers came to the villiage. They were accompanied by members of the Lavender Town research team.
Seeing the rareness of Marowak, the poachers tried to nab the Pokemon, however all efforts failed. The poachers thought Marowak to be a menace and killed it. The children were able to excape into the wild with help from the mother. And so, the species of Pokemon known as Cubone and Marowak were created. But, what happend to the original Marowak? Its ghost followed the research team back to Lavender Town, blaming them for the death of its mother. It soon resided in the Lavender Tower, where it soon became restless and years made the ghost go insane with fury. It still resides there, hoping to one day get closure for its tragic history.
