â€˜The Lavender Town Syndromeâ€™ 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 â€˜intensify the spookinessâ€™. 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, itâ€™s all hokum for shits and giggles, but there you go â€“ I personally donâ€™t see the creepy element of the song, but maybe thatâ€™s just me <_<
Good luck avoiding the ghooooost... O.O
