I hate what they did to Lavender Tower in this game.

They made it into a stupid radio tower that does absolutely nothing as opposed to keeping it a haunted tower which would be good training ground since Gastly and Haunter would appear there, but no it's just two floors full of useless npc idiots, ad you can't see what's on the 3rd floor because that pig is in the way.

The Lavender Town Syndrome is entirely true. It is due to the Super Sonic, Sonic, and Sub Sonic frequencies, along with the binural beats. All those things ARE able to cause the symptoms, AND, the 8-bit is in a somewhat minor key. Minor keys have been known to cause negative thoughts. I am also 11, and I listened to the music dor 30 seconds, and I got a day long headache.

Hey! Interesting story. As a kid I did experience a couple of nose bleeds and headaches while playing pokemon blue/red. I cannot remember however if those incidents were isolated to my time in lavender town. It could've just as easily been the frustration generated by repeated attempts at catching a legendary such as mewtwo lol

I'm now 14 years old and had just listened to the lavender town song, freakin creeped me out because I had some of the symptoms. I had rashional behaviors ( looking for things that weren't there ), I was dazed, my ears hurt and my eyes started to sting like crazy.

I didn't know what was going on and then got even more creeped out when I went on the Internet and looked at the symp[u][/u]toms and some stories of people dying, and physically and mentally hurting themselves... They were true.

I hoped this helped.
Ps. Srry I can't spell lol

Just to mention it, the music meant only existed in the Japanese alpha version^^. so i dont think u played it as little child
Why do people keep bumping 2 years old threads? Anywho Mantoc is right, there was a very high note that only kids with sensitive ears could hear which could damage them although I never heard it could cause vomiting. Japanese kids are like test subjects to Nintendo

I'm 11. When I listened to this for one minute I had to lie down. I have sensitive ears. But it really made my head hurt. I say that it is fact that it could cause vomiting and etc. But defiantly not suicide.

It would of been interesting had something similar to this had made in HG/SS. Too bad they didn't.

quote Lynxx
Lavender Town's music in the original (read: Japanese) versions of Red and Green (Green was later released in America as Blue) contained notes that people over the age of around five or six years were unable to perceive, and apparently it was these notes that affected the children.

The notes were removed when the games were re-released in America, so it shouldn't affect children nowadays.

I remember when I got Pokemon Red at the age of five, Lavender Town's music didn't inspire any thoughts of harming myself etc in me.

Does this hold any truth?
quote Bulbagarden's Lavender Town page
Trivia

Lavender Town's Japanese motto is シオンは むらさき とうとい いろ "Shion is the color of purple nobility."
In the German versions, Lavender Town is called Lavandia, the same name as the French for Mauville City.
In early copies of Pokémon Red and Green, Lavender Town's theme was slightly different and included a few high pitched notes in the background at certain intervals of its music.
Its English motto before Generation IV was "The Noble Purple Town."
In the Japanese edition of the Christian Bible, Mt. Zion is called シオンの山 Shion no San, which is the same as the Japanese name of Lavender Town.
