Lavender Town has home to a situation that seemed to come out of nowhere, smacking into players like a ton of bricks. One minute you're accompanied by lighthearted travel music, and the next you're greeted with Lavender Town's somber theme -- and we all know it. Then to the upper right of the tiny town, you've got the Pokemon Tower, which houses all the graves of deceased Pokemon and wandering spirits. The "Ghosts" wandering around within turned out to be various Gastlys and other ghost-type Pokemon, but the sudden shift in tone from sunny and positive to the player's brush with death in such a depressing manner was truly an astounding one.
