‘The Lavender Town Syndrome’ is another one of those daft Creepypasta tales (which we all knew was going to come about sooner or later) that popped up a couple of years ago on Pastebin. Before then, gamers were discussing the eerie theme of the graveyard town on Serebii and NintendoWorlds.net, and a remix emerged in early 2010 trying to ‘intensify the spookiness’. As ingx24 has already said, the original music is only present in the Japanese versions of Red and Green, as it was changed in the US version released two years later; this was also a point of discussion, and although the change was most likely done to prevent sound distortion, the creepypasta media suggests otherwise...
At any rate, it’s all hokum for shits and giggles, but there you go – I personally don’t see the creepy element of the song, but maybe that’s just me <_<
Good luck avoiding the ghooooost... O.O
