Pokémon, when you think of this game you think of an almost Utopian society with green grass, and blue skies. However, there is a dark side to Pokémon that loyal fans of series are keenly aware of. A few examples of this; brutally murdered Pokémon, spooky ghost girls, horrific genetic experiments on Pokémon, and giant earth destroying machines, just to name a few. No music from the Pokémon games shows us this dark side more than the theme to Lavender Town from the original Pokémon games. Truly, this theme is more than likely the scariest music I have on this playlist. The tune is off kilter and even at times goes out of tune on purpose. This tune is enhanced as you walk through Lavender Town and start to meet some of the residents, who for the most part seem to be a little off kilter themselves. It gets even creepier as you walk through the Pokémon tower, which is sort of like a giant Pokémon mausoleum and you are attacked by a ghost that’s seems to be very different from ghost type Pokémon. As you progress through the tower the story gets even sadder, but I won’t spoil it here. There are all different types of remixes of this music and each is just as creepy as the next and I’ll put a few of them in the post. This Halloween, if you’re looking for a good creepy ambiance melody for your haunted house this is a perfect choice.
