Cerrax: Originally I wanted to capture the tension and fear of walking into the Viridian Forest for the first time. The music is eerie and dissonant and is purposefully trying to put the player on edge. But as I made the mix, I realized that it sounded more surreal and trippy, and it reminded me of the many poisonous Pokémon that make the Viridian Forest so terrifying. I decided to go with it, and eventually came to titling it "Out of Antidote," since I imagine this is how a Pokémon or its trainer feels after being poisoned in these frightening woods.
