A note from the creator: This drink was inspired by the Lavender Town Syndrom urban legends that have become popularized on the internet.
It is said that during the earliest run of the original Pokemon games, many children reported interesting symptoms. After playing for many hours and prolonged listening to the original music played in Lavender Town, some children reported having severe headaches, feeling very depressed and even some suicidal tendencies. Upon investigation, it was found that there was a hidden undertone in the original music for Lavender Town. It is believed that it was these hidden undertones that caused “Lavender Town Syndrome”. The music was modified slightly for further releases, the undertones were removed, and the syndrome seemed vanish.
