    Unhappy I just don't get it... Why IS Lavender Town so scary?

    I don't know if this belongs here, or not, but yeah. Anyway...

    I don't get it. Why IS Lavender Town so scary?

    I listened to this, and I liked it. That isn't scary at all. Want to know why it's scary?



    Yeah. Then they draw all these pictures about it and reverse it and I get all creeped out...

    I accually was a time in my life where I didn't get scared when I heard the Unown sounds in Heartgold/Soulsilver, the Drought Music in Emerald, AND the LAVENDER TOWN music in Firered and Leafgreen.

    Look. Someone please awnser. I completely don't get it. This ain't no Devil's music. Like not even close.


    I'm a full time Pokemon Breeder! But please visit, I really do appreciate the help.

    It is creepy.
    The theme song of the town is, at least. ;)

    According to Creepypasta everything is evil and causes little kids to commit suicide.

    I can safely say Lavender Town frightened me long before I discovered all the stuff about it on the internet. There's something creepy about the monochrome visuals and dated sound quality of the Game Boy, it was a big shock to discover that Pokemon could die, and its overall gloomy atmosphere is a total contrast to the happy and friendly feel to the rest of the game. The freaky and chaotic town music is just the icing on the cake.

    Of course, I was only 11 when I first played the game, maybe that's why I and many others have a fear of the area which remains to this day.

    Lavender Town wasn't supposed to be creepy besides for the haunted ghosts thing. And even then, that's just because they're ghosts, it's a halloween-esque sort of creepy at best. Absolutely not out of place.

    It's supposed to be a peaceful resting grounds. People just overhyped it because of the stupider sort of creepypasta. (Namely suicides and Buried Alive)


    If you want something actually ominous and creepy in that game, the burned Cinnabar mansion IS meant to be something like that.

    lol
    A song which causes little kids to kill themselves. That would be so cool.

    And I don't think the song is creepy because of a creepypasta. I don't even know about this creepypasta you are talking about D:

    Creepypasta is a website that tells "creepy" stories. From what I've heard, as I've never gone on it, they are mostly about things causing little kids to commit suicide.

    That little girl makes it creepy. "Do you believe in ghosts? No. Hm, I wonder what that white hand on your shoulder is then?" @_@

    I'll admit, I am a little more creeped out by the Pokemon Mansion's music. But if anything, both music doesn't bother me in the slightest. I guess the whole idea of ghost Pokemon haunting an otherwise peaceful resting ground while possessing spirit mediums, and while Team Rocket inhabits it shortly after killing a Cubone's mother, does start to make things more 'creepier' than what they're really meant to be.

    If anything, the fact that many trainers carry whips with them, and that Cubone wears the skull of its deceased mother (according to Pokedex entry) is more disturbing than anything else I've encountered in the Generation I games, or in the Pokemon games in general. That said, I do believe that Generation I does have a slightly more darker tone than some of the other gens.

    I didn't find Lavender Town's theme scary (it does sound freaky when reversed). The ghosts looked kinda funny. It's just no other town in Kanto had a burial site for Pokemon. And then there's Marowak murder.
