In every Pokemon region there is always that one area that feels a little off. There might be objects that move, people suddenly disappearing, or maybe just those few pixels of glowing red eyes. Given that it's October, I think now is the perfect time to discuss these places with a simple question: What, in your opinion, is the creepiest place in Pokemon, and why? For me, well let me first explain why I find certain things scary. I get the most freaked out by feelings of uncertainty and anticipation - when you know something is wrong, or something is there, but you don't know where, or when, or what it is. So if I understand the story behind an area or what's happening within it, it becomes far less scary to me. With that in mind, a lot of places in Pokemon either explain what's going on too well, or don't set up anticipation well enough. However, one place really stands out that makes me feel uncomfortable every single time: The Ruins Of Alph. The atmosphere is really well done - you come across these ruins with their fun puzzles, and these strange letter Pokemon which seem like just an odd gimmick, until you access the first hidden room and find the Unown start... talking to you. Just like that, the place suddenly becomes very eerie - it feels like some ancient civilization is trying to leave a warning for those in the future as they died, but, about what? What did they see? How did they die? These questions never felt like they were answered to me, and so that feeling of anticipation never went away.
