Pokemon: Creepy Pokedex Entries And Lavender Town.

     WARNING:THIS POST ISN'T FOR CHILDREN.SENSITIVE READERS BE ADVISED                       Pokemon. A lot has been said about Pokemon over the years. It's a cute fun game with lot's of cute animals that you fight til the death in order to boost your characters own animal fighting....yayy? But, have you ever noticed anything..odd..about the pokedex entries? You know? Those blurbs that describe the Pokemon after you've caught it? Have you ever noticed how....creepy they can sometime be?
                                                                                                                                                                                                       It carries a pendulum-like device. There once was an incident in which it took away a child it hypnotized. -Hypno's Pokedex entry in Fire Red.

They like to eat gold nuggets. -Cofagrigus pokedex entry in Black                                                                                                                     The antenna on its head captures radio waves from the world of spirits that command it to take  people there.-Dusknoir's pokedex entry in Heart Gold/Soul Silver.

                                    LAVENDER TOWN

NOTE: I will not talk about CreepyPasta's on this least not yet. (Hint: Herobrine NEXT BLOG) Nope, no Lavender Town Syndrome or White Hand or Buried Alive here. However if you have no idea what i'm talking about here is a linkThe Lavender Town Syndrome.

Ah, Lavender Town aka. The Noble Purple Town. aka Nightmare Fuel. What's creepy about this place? Oh, HOW ABOUT FRIGGIN' EVERYTHING! From the music that's nothing short of an 8-bit dirge.                                To the fact that it houses the biggest surprise in Pokemon Red and Blue.
                                       (SPOILER ALERT)

Located in eastern side of town is Pokemon Tower. A seven story graveyard for Pokemon. (See,warned ya!) that houses HUNDREDS of graves for dearly departed Pokemon and Channelers who can channel (and become possessed by) their spirits...who make them say weird nonsensical things. One of them even claiming she wants blood....

Also worthy of note: Pokemon Tower was later converted briefly into Kanto Radio Tower in Generation II and IV. 

Now for your enjoyment. Another version of the Lavender Town Theme.
