Fake pokemon

It seems there aren't too many Pokemon fans aware of the fact that "Sableye"...

...Is based on a famous "alien" sighting, the Hopkinsville Goblin:

This is most evident when people come up with their own hypothetical evolutions for the monster (a common practice among fans), which tend to turn Sableye into a large dragon or demon-like creature. To rectify this, I decided to draw my own idea for how the little guy should evolve: into a couple other famous aliens. Can you name them both?

Boy it's not very often I see my hometown referenced. We're not famous for much. Pretty much just this (the goblin) fabrication to cover up the embarrassment of a drunken redneck feud, and Edgar Cayce. We don't even get any credit for the Ebonite bowling ball factory.

I really love the idea of Sableye evolving into the mothman and Flatwoods monster, by the way.

I can name both, considering I live where they both come from. Garsh is right, we don't get much credit for anything nowadays.

According to both "X-Files" and "Freakylinks" Mothman was also seen in North Carolina. Is that accurate? I also remember reading about it showing up in Cornwall.

That Sableye is one of the best, if not the best pokemon card in the current modified format.

What is the chance of three people from Hopkinsville even visiting this website? I'm beginning to feel like I'm special or something.
