Lavender Town Syndrome

The Lavender Town Syndrome (also known as Lavender Town Tone, Lavender Town Conspiracy or Lavender Town Suicides) is an urban legend. There was a supposed peak in suicides and illness of children between the ages of 7-12 in February 1996, shortly after the release of Pokémon Red and Green in Japan.

Rumours say that these suicides and illness only occurred after the children, that were playing the game, reached Lavender Town, whose theme music was creepy since the ambiance of the town was that of a graveyard, and had extremely high frequencies, that only children and young teens were able hear, since their ears are still more sensible than those of adults.
Due to the Lavender Tone, at least two-hundred children supposedly committed suicide, and many more developed illnesses and afflictions. The children who committed suicide usually did so by hanging or jumping from heights. Those who did not acted irrationally complained of severe headaches after listening to the Lavender Town's theme.
