Also, what do you guys think of my new Kcalb signature :D
Oo, they sound creepy. No, I've been fortunate enough not to have any such experiences with them, though I am interested... and I hope I never do, unless if it's in a hack... Have there been many encounters with them, cause I'd like to read some.

Love the Kcalb sig BTW! Awesome stuff!! XD

There are quite a lot of Violet and/or Ava creepypastas on the blog "f yeah pokemon creepy-pasta". They have a lot of weird stuff there. Some of the stories on that blog are good, but some are just LAME. But it's definitely something to check out =D I've found some great Red stuff on there.

Also, have any of you guys read "Snow on Mount Silver?" That's a good one. Wonderful fanart

Just read the Snow on Mount Silver story. Another one to give me the creeps at night. The more realistic ones always fascinate me more than the absolutely impossible (or not?) stories that you sometimes find. (ie; some of the overproduced Violet/Ava's)

I agree with you, Snow on Mt Silver is definitely one of the most descriptive and believeable ones. Most of the Violet/Ava's are LAME. They are completely unrealistic... another good one to read is Loss of Purpose...that one is kind of depressing, though...but if you like Snow on Mt Silver you'll probably like it.

Alright, I was thinking about this recently, but WHY THE HECK ARE ALL THE CREEPYPASTAS ABOUT 1ST, 2ND, OR (rarely) 5TH GEN?! I mean, 4th and 3rd could use some love xP
I mean, don't get me wrong, I love Red, and the classic Lost Silver/Creepy Black/Glitchy Red/etc is pretty great, but I feel like 3rd through 5th gen gets frequently neglected. Seriously. I was thinking about the Internet's "profiles" of the Protags based on Creepypastas and the like, and this is what I came up with-

Red- Often portrayed as a deadly silent demon child who preys on Gold and other characters; also, typically, if a character is going to go sentient in a game, it's him. Sometimes is simply the unfortunate hero. TONS of fanart.

Gold- Typically "that kid from Lost Silver who got his arms ripped off" or the prey of another Ghost, Red, etc.

Kris, Lyra, Leaf- Barely used except sometimes as Ghost bait or a protag.

Brendan, May, Lucas, and Dawn--nothing. NOTHING.

Hilbert, aka Black- Rarely seen unless he's the hero. His other personality is also rarely featured, even though he attracts plenty of fanart.

Hilda, aka White- Even less featured, but will occasionally make a cameo.

What the heck?!

Ohh I think I read Snow on Mt. Silver? :D I'm such a bad co-owner
I think it is time for a new Topic! :D

Have you ever believed a creepy pasta?

I admit I have, and the one I did believe was the Lavender Town music. (Which still creeps me out.)

If you look back on it though, the older gens had more to branch off from. The old dark pixels always provided an eerie look on things. Looking to Gen 3, most of the region, and the game itself, is more of a happier vibe. In Gen 4, besides Cyrus, everything, again, was more cheerful. Gen 5 brought a darker storyline, along with some creepier tales that allowed them to be made into creepypastas. Gen 1 and 2 will always have Red, and Gold often is seen as a victim. (I mean seriously, even in the hack I'm making, Gold dies, but shhhhhh thats spoiler. )

Mmm, yeah, I would like to see some 3rd/4th gen creepypastas. I mean, 3rd Gen did introduce Banette, which IMO has one of the most interesting Pokedex entries I've ever seen (a Pokemon that used to be an old doll, and haunts the one who abandoned it). And 4th gen has the Old Chateau, which has a really creepy vibe to it (and the music still gives me the chills). 4th Gen also has Giratina and the Distortion World, which I feel was pretty dark, especially in Platnium.
It's just a shame that the 4th gen games didn't do more with the Old Chateau.

Gen 5 has that weird girl on Marvelous Bridge that disappears as you approach her. For a long while I didn't know what was up with her or why she disappears (until I remembered that an old lady tells you that a girl and her Abra used to live in the area long ago).
But I've been playing White 2, and I visited that Strange House near Lentimas Town. Not nearly as dark or creepy as the Old Chateau, which is a shame. It does give a bit more insight into that ghost girl though.

As for the new topic, no I've never believed a creepypasta. But the Lavender Town music one came fairly close. If I had heard the original Lavender Town music when I was younger I might have believed the creepy pasta.

Huh, so the Strange House has something to do with the Disappearing Girl? I thought it had to do with Darkrai. That's interesting. But remember, guys, SPOILERTAGS

Woops. Yeah, I need to be more considerate of people and spoilers Especially with B2W2.

On the topic of 5th Gen, are there any really good 5th gen creepypastas out there? Cause I haven't seen much.

All 5th gen creepypasta's I've read haven't been that good, at least not anywhere near the level of creepypastas like the Laver Town ones and Snow on Mt. Silver. Although to say, I've still yet to find a good one for any of the other two generations as well, so 5th gen is not alone.

There was also a creepypasta competition here on PC back in the GT of 2010 I think, so we have a lot of creepypastas made from the members on here. First part of the thread is just a collection of creepypastas they've found, but around the later pages the creepypastas should all be gathered together in one post ^^

I saw Zayphora's comment on my latest story, Missing, where he mentioned a Lavender Town Club, and I was like "WHAAAAAAAAT?! THERE'S A LAVENDER TOWN CLUB?! WHY HAVE I NOT HEARD OF THIS BEFORE?! So here I am.

Name: SeekerOfDarkness (A.k.a. Seeker, Ansem, w/e)
Pick a Pokemon from the list: Can we use Eevelutions? uhh How about 'M? Yet another glitch Pokemon.
What's you favorite creepy topic: I like the stuff that happens in game, with some mysterious backstory behind it.
Do you have a favorite character from a creepypasta?: Red, from "Glitchy Red". Also my favorite Creepypasta.

Anywho, I've never seen a good 5th Gen creepypasta. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a 5th Gen Creepypasta at all. Hm. Wonder why. Other than the girl at marvelous bridge, there's nothing too creepy in BW at all. (I don't have B2W2 yet, so idk about those games). Even the Pokemon Tower replacement (I forget what they called it) wasn't creepy at all, despite being a grave site for Pokemon. If you ask me, though, the best Creepypastas come from the first 2 gens. There's just so much someone can do with those games. I just don't think there's enough strangeness to use in succeeding gens for a good creepypasta. (Course, i shouldn't say that, as I have plans for a story about the old lady at Snowpoint.)

Welcome, Seekerofdarkness.

I believe in lavender town syndrome, that "missing frequencies with the LEAVE NOW message", and that thing where they say red died and his ghost appears in Mt. silver.

What's your favorite Pokemon creepy topic?: Theories regarding what could have been, like the Cubone/Kangaskhan Theory.
Do you have a favorite character from a Pokemon Creepypasta?: Ghost from Pokemon Black Version (not 5th gen, the Hack)

I regards to the question of whether or not I have ever believed a Pasta, I'll admit that I actually believe the story of Pokemon Black. It just seems more believable than most Pastas I've read.

It seems to me that 5th gen is probably too new to get any good Pastas, and also it hasn't been hacked quite as much as the older generations, so the likely hood of strange things being added to the game are pretty slim, though I know not all Pastas are about hacks necessarily...

You know, I'd have to disagree with you on that. There may not be any obviously creepy things around the region, in any areas or in the dialogue except for the thing with the girl at Marvelous Bridge, however all you need to do is take a look at the Pokedex entries for certain Pokemon, and you'll stumble upon some creepy or disturbing things, or in the very least, some things that don't really seem like they fit into Pokemon. To be honest, I think the fifth generation brought forth the most of these kind of entries of all the generations. I'll just list the ones I find the most disturbing below.

Litwick

Litwick shines a light that absorbs the life energy of people and Pokémon, which becomes the fuel that it burns.

While shining a light and pretending to be a guide, it leeches off the life force of any who follow it.

Its flame is usually out, but it starts shining when it absorbs life force from people or Pokémon.


Lampent

This ominous Pokémon is feared. Through cities it wanders, searching for the spirits of the fallen.

It arrives near the moment of death and steals spirit from the body.


Chandelure

It absorbs a spirit, which it then burns. By waving the flames on its arms, it puts its foes into a hypnotic trance.

Being consumed in Chandelure's flame burns up the spirit, leaving the body behind.

Yamask

Each of them carries a mask that used to be its face when it was human. Sometimes they look at it and cry.

These Pokémon arose from the spirits of people interred in graves in past ages. Each retains memories of its former life.

Cohagrigus

It has been said that they swallow those who get too close and turn them into mummies. They like to eat gold nuggets.

Grave robbers who mistake them for real coffins and get too close end up trapped inside their bodies.


Heatmor

Using their very hot, flame-covered tongues, they burn through Durant's steel bodies and consume their insides.



There are more, but these were just the ones I felt to be the most dark or unnatural for such bright games as Pokemon to include, and while some from earleir generations may have been worse, this generation sure had the most.

Agreed, Olli97. I also saw this on Memebase. Got some funny creepy Dex illustrations.

I was thinking about this yesterday- Another reason that 1st and 2nd Gen hog all the pasta is that they focus more on the fantasy aspect of Pokemon. 3rd, 4th, and 5th are more sci-fi oriented, what with Team Galactic, Opelucid, Black City, Akuroma, Deoxys...the list goes on. Fantasy seems more easily creepified in general.

By the way, have any of you guys read Door's Open? It's awesome. Very weird but quite interesting. It's based on Strangled Red. But it's got a twist at the end. A very nice one.

Not to say that there aren't ANY good 5th gen pastas out there. N's Rage is a great one. It's a hack-based pasta, but it's excellent. And if I could actually freaking FIND the Kcalb creepypasta, then I bet that would be great.

Oh, welcome, NecrumWarrior and SeekerOfDarkness! Hope you like it here. Seeker's pasta is really good, guys. You should read it.

I think I gotta disagree with you there. Gen 1 had HEAVY sci-fi influence. So much of it was inspired by the theme of science, including genetic experimentation, the creation of a digital Pokemon, cloning etc. The fantasy elements are really much more prevalent in Gen 2 when the game took on a theme of traditionalism and folklore/legends.

I think it's just the fact that old games, no matter how up beat, are always a little bit creepy due to their lower quality. Plus there were so many more bugs and glitches back then and a fair degree of unknown since the game was in development for so long.

Actually, this is true. I hadn't thought of Pokedex entries. Just to add one of my personal favorites to the list:

Duskull - If it finds bad children who won't listen to their parents, it will spirit them away--or so it's said. It loves the crying of children.

Oh yes this, the Pokemon games, despite being targetted at a younger audience, really can get quite creepy at times. So since we've already narrowed ourselves in on this, I guess this would make a good topic?

Which is your favourite creepy Pokedex entry? Which Pokedex entry do you find the creepiest?

As for me, I'd say Kadabra's Pokedex entry for Firered.

It happened one morning - a boy with extrasensory powers awoke in bed transformed into Kadabra.

It isn't my favourite for being significantly creepy or very well thought out, but more because it's just so weird and raises so many questions. Like, why was the boy transformed into a Kadabra rather than an Abra or Alakazam? Why suddenly go into the middle of an evolutionary line? Was the boy an Abra that evolved? whatwhatwhat. It just makes no sense, and GAH.

Mine? Mew, the mythical Pokemon--- from SOUTH AMERICA. What what what WHAT? This makes me think the Mutant Future pasta is actually what GAME FREAK had in mind. I love stuff like that.

I've heard of other creepy/weird Pokedex entries. Here are some:

This is one of the creepy entries of pokemon that like hurting children.
Duskull: "It loves the crying of children. It startles bad kids by passing through walls and making them cry." (Platinum)
It loves the Crying of Children. Come on, why would they put so much hate on children in a children's video game? O.O There are more such as Drifloon and Hypno (child kidnappers) and Banette, perhaps you could check them out if you want.

This one is about a pokemon mourning over its own Death.
Yamask: "Each of them carries a mask that used to be its face when it was human. Sometimes they look at it and cry." (Black) D:

There's also
Gorebyss (an enourmous swimming mosquito),
Shedninja (steals your spirit when you peer into the hole in its back (which you do EVERY time you send it out into battle)),
Cacturne (follows people at night and waits for them to tire out. why? what will they do to those people? kill them?? eat them??)

Zayphora, just a reminder, you can't double post as a owner untill the club has been inactive for at least a month, but I'm gonna let it slide for now.

As for your question, I do recall reading it, but I can hardly even remember what it was like. If it was the one about your rival, with the hidden room in the back of the Viridian gym, taking place during the time of GSC, then sure, I remember it, but gonna read through it shortly, so that I can answer properly. Now, the title did remind me of another creepypasta called "Axe, Candle, Rope". I'm guessing the idea for it came off the surfboard item, which appears to originally have been a replacement for the HM move, where the author probably thought up other items for this.

Spoiler:
Basically the axe was supposed to be an earlier version of Cut, the candle was supposed to be an earlier version of Flash, and the rope was just the Escape rope, which should've been replaced by Dig, but apparently didn't. Initially they all had the same function as their current counterparts, however a bit into the development, the programmers apparently edited the effects of the items a bit, which led to some really morbid jokes. Using the axe on NPC's would trigger a high-pitched screaming effect which was all that the original Gameboy could handle, flash a dark screen for a second, and then return to normal, however the NPC would be gone, and what would resemble a dark puddle in its place.
The candle, if used in a building, would trigger the smoke screen animation, which would go all around the building, whereafter a message would tell the player to leave the building, in which it isn't informed what would happen if they didn't. That aside, once the player exited the building, the OW of the building would be completely black, and the player would be unable to enter the building.
The escape rope, which people can probably guess, would show the player hang himself, if the item was used in front of a doorway. One of the beta testers, who were the victims of these cruel jokes apparently left the team after discovering this, because they thought it was just too far, where in which case they all seem pretty much too far in this case.

Anyways, the items were all removed for the final game and replaced with their HM counterpart of course, but the programmers found them very hard to completely delete from the code, so instead they made the "extra functions" inacessible, and hid them somewhere else in the code. Hacker apparently found these bits of code years later, with two tragic incidents following these discoveries. Apparently a girl had brought an axe to school, and murdered her fellow classmates with it, only to be locked somewhere secure afterwards. Another incident was of a man burning down his office building, just to be the only survivor, and where, following an investigation, there was a burned cartridge found in his house. None of the incidents were confirmed to be a cause of the games, but it was assumed so by the narrator, since they were both hackers (dunno where he got that from), and both owned the Pokemon games, in which these things were hidden in the code.

It was never heard of anything regarding the rope in the story by the narrator though, however he ends it off with a line saying "my escape rope is waiting", so it can only be assumed that he was the third victim of these items.

Welcome NecrumWarrior.

I just read Strangled Red, it's so damn creepy. Like goosebumps every 10 seconds! How can such simple games be turned to creepy stuff?

...Strangled Red? Have you read it? What'd you think of it?
I'm currently making a full length playable ROM for it.

Which is your favourite creepy Pokedex entry? Which Pokedex entry do you find the creepiest?

As for me, I'd say Kadabra's Pokedex entry for Firered.

It happened one morning - a boy with extrasensory powers awoke in bed transformed into Kadabra.

It isn't my favourite for being significantly creepy or very well thought out, but more because it's just so weird and raises so many questions. Like, why was the boy transformed into a Kadabra rather than an Abra or Alakazam? Why suddenly go into the middle of an evolutionary line? Was the boy an Abra that evolved? whatwhatwhat. It just makes no sense, and GAH.
We had a similar topic back in the Haunted House Club. Yamask's and Cohagrigus' entries were just so interesting and creepy and the same time. Cohagrigus' was more creepy, just because the thought of going near one and being turned into a mummy creeps me out. But I was so interested in Yamask's because of the fact that it says they were once human. What happened to them in order for them to become Pokemon? Considering that Yamask is a Ghost-type, I'd say that something involving death happened. But who knows...

I've never seen that entry for Kadabra before. But that is interesting, and it does raise lots of questions. It doesn't really sound like a pokedex entry, does it? Kinda presents a premise for a creepypasta in my opinion.

I don't know why I like Strangled Red so much. It's just so interesting, and I really like the story. It's a tragedy that takes a really creepy end, which I like
I have been wanting to play a ROM version of Strangled Red for ages now!
