A big yellow popcorn, it's beautiful. *sniffs*

I think I'm good with cute and cuddly instead of muscular and murderous.

What monsters could be considered monster with the names: jigglypuff, squirtle, clefairy, and mew.

Yea, I remember hearing about this. People didn't think cute monsters would sell, not sure if it was just localization or not though. I'm guessing these naysayers don't play Dragon Quest, since most of those monsters aren't exactly intimidating either.

Just for the record, lots of Pokémon are terrifying. Drifloon kidnaps children, Cacturne follow people around in groups waiting for them to become immobile (not dead, just unable to move), Yveltal literally destroys everything that lives after it dies...yeah. A number of these Pokémon horrify me, even when they are cute.
