    I've looked everywhere for the so called "Beta Lavender Town" theme from the original Pokemon Green, every single one i found was just a remix with images added into the audio.
    Is there truly a real beta Lavender Town theme, or is it all just a hoax and was never changed in the first place? I can't find any solid evidence.

    My understanding is that the music in Lavender town in the original Pokemon Red and Green Japanese versions was a bit different, I believe you can hear the differences on youtube. It sounds like it was a slightly annoying tune so they remixed it for Pokemon Blue and the international releases of the first gen games.

    haha yeah, people went crazy with the creepypasta with this one. It admittedly made for some fun reads.

    Who was the composer for the old pokemon games? I bet if they did music that was exclusively like the Lavender Town theme, they'd be right up there with Throbbing Gristle, Nurse With Wound, Coil, The Residents, and all those other great artists that perfected the art of making people uncomfortable and taking them to dark places.

    The official R/G/FR/LG 4-disc soundtrack, released this year in Japan (and bought by me 3 weeks ago) does have a "Lavender town 1997" song, fwiw
