Don't get me wrong; I love Pokemon and Creepypastas about the same as much as the next guy, so long as those pastas are done well. But I've been wondering lately, why is it that Pokemon seems to be a popular topic for Creepypastas? Is can't just be because of the urban legends surrounding Lavender Town; though many of the stories incorporate Lavender town in some way, it usually isn't a centrall element.

My first guess, and probably the most likely reason, would be that Pokemon is something that is associated with the innocence of childhood, and thus is interesting to corrupt.

What do you think?
