    Nothing about it really destroyed my childhood....Missingno was a little unnerving the first time I encountered it, though.

    Lavender town was always creepy to me, especially how the ghost look before you get the Silph. Scope. Then I had to fight Agatha, who was already creepy enough, with the creepy sprites they chose for all of her pokemon. But, this was all creepy in a good way(I have the word gothic in my username for a reason) so it didn't really "break" my childhood, but those events definitely stood to me when I was playing and it's always one of the first things to pop into my mind when I thing about R/B.

    I happened to play red and blue when I was maybe 4 or 5 years old, younger, but I really only mashed on buttons before I was 4. Anyway, Lavender Town was always my favorite and I always founded in intriguing. I thought the theme was brilliant, but then again, I thought anything in pokemon was brilliant (I was always a huge pokemon nerd, thanks to my brothers). But seriously, Lavender Town was probably my favorite because of the story and creepyness of the town.
    BTW, nothing broke my childhood. Pokemon is awesome, and always will be to me.

    I've known about missingno almost as long as I've known pokemon. my brothers always convinced me to get it once I got to cinnabar. Also the mew glitch, but I messed it up and teleported to Lavender Town instead, so I got a Gengar. Again, wasn't that freaked out.

    Oh, Lavender Town, with its infamous droning song of death. It was obviously the most morbid part of Pokemon as they had to change the tune in Gen II... Nothing will ever be scarier in Pokemon as going to Lavender town in Yellow.

    I go to the town > hear disturbing music > I'm already unnerved.
    Talk to the people and read signs > The huge tower is memorial to all the dead Pokemon
    Doing the fly glitch to battle Yellow's Missingno. that I had heard of. > Beat the right trainer to do it.
    Go back into town and my menu opens up, as usual for the glitch > I close it...
    Missingno. appears on the screen > It flashes crazy colors and blasts an extremely loud screech that terrified me.
    Random sounds continued until the Lavender town song started to play, it even had some odd extra beats in it, almost like it was mixed with a glitch song (see my Bulbapedia article on it)... Even creepier than the original.

    And that is why Lavender town was what destroyed my childhood. (not really, just terrorized me, lol)

    Uhh... Safari Zone almost ruined my childhood. I couldn't find/reach the end to get Surf. I stayed in Fuchsia City for quite a while. I even raised my whole team to level 70. Eventually my neighbor borrowed my game and got Surf for me. If he wasn't there to find Surf for me, I'd either keep trying or... not be in the Pokemon fandom today! xD;

    You forgot to add the Poke Ball bouncing off Snorlax -.- It upset me horribly.

    And of course, like I mentioned before, the Mewtwo I killed... AND the skeleton Missingno I encountered somewhere near Lavender Town.

    Honestly, i think that the thing that upset me the most was just that i couldn't get all of the starters in the same game! I would wander around the grass for hours trying to find Bulbasaur or Squirtle (Always picked Charmander) and when one of my friends told me, i was pretty damn shattered.

    I don't calculate stat values, nor do I care about natures. I just catch my Pokemon the way they are, and play the game normally. If you agree copy and paste this into your sig.

    I tried to go through Rock Tunnel without Flash once.

    Y'all are crazy, lavender town never had the same effect on me that it had on you guys!

    However, in g/s/c, the ruins of alph and pokemon tower frequencies were a bit unnerving. It reminded me of numbers stations.

    I can honestly say that nothing really harmed my "childhood" because I got into Pokemon rather late (entering junior high at the time) and thus I found Lavender town fascinating.

    A lot of my fascination for Pokemon came from it reminding me of Shining Force, a childhood favorite. The animations and the positions of the sprites were very similar, as was the health bar. While playing it, I was reminded of other RPGs I used to love like Dragon Warrior.

    Prior to that I largely ignored Pokemon because my obsession was Zelda at the time.

    Nothing really I was one of the few that enjoyed the original Lavender Town music. It relaxed me and put me to sleep growing up.

    Ugh, Missingno. I was half asleep when my hubby decided to do the item clone glitch and ran into that thing. Yeah, nothing will freak out more than hearing that awful cry when you're dozing off.

    For me, it was Cubone's dead mother. I may have been an adult, but the whole "Team Rocket knowingly killed a Pokemon" just creeped me out. Then there was encountering the thing without the Silph Scope....
