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.
