LaRousse City Battle Tower

Battle Towers are special areas set up specifically for Pokémon battles. Trainers register their Pokémon on the first floor and climb up the floors in a number of battles, fighting other Trainers one by one. There is no penalty for losing other than breaking the player's streak. From Generation III onward, there are a number of rules that can also be changed within the tower - such as fighting in Double Battles* against the other Trainers. Trainers sometimes battle for bragging rights, but they are often rewarded with rare items or points that can be used to buy rare items as well.

Battle Towers are run by Tower Tycoons, who fulfill a similar role to that of Gym Leaders in Pokémon Gyms. Trainers taking a Battle Tower challenge have a number of battles in a row, ending after seven wins, or when they lose. The Tower Tycoon will challenge them after certain winning streaks have been made. In Johto*, Hoenn* and Sinnoh*, the Battle Tower is part of a larger Battle Frontier. In the Sevii Islands, a smaller and simplified version of a Battle Tower can be found in Trainer Tower. Pokémon Emerald Version also contains the Trainer Hill facility, which further serves as a modified simplification of the Trainer Tower (despite Emerald housing a Battle Tower of its own within Hoenn's Battle Frontier).

Pokémon do not gain experience in Battle Tower battles, while Trainers are awarded Battle Points* instead of money. These points can be redeemed for items, in a shop usually located near the tower. Additionally, Pokémon not registered in the Pokédex will not be registered upon being seen in a Battle Tower. Pokémon cannot be above the level limit. From Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Versions onward, Pokémon that are above the level range will simply be reduced to level 50 temporarily, the level of the Pokémon that the player will be facing.
