Pokémon world locations

The Goldenrod Radio Tower (Japanese: コガネラジオとう Kogane Radio Tower) is a five-story tower located next to the Magnet Train station in downtown Goldenrod City, the largest city in Johto. The radio tower broadcasts numerous programs daily, the most prominent of such being Professor Oak's Pokémon Talk and Buena's Password, a new radio show that debuted in Pokémon Crystal. For a short time in Generation II and Generation IV, the tower fell victim to the clutches of Team Rocket, during which time none of the normal broadcasts were aired.

The topmost floor in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

Following the defeat of Pryce at the Mahogany Town Gym, it is necessary to purge the Radio Tower of Team Rocket in order to continue the storyline as a man selling RageCandyBars will prevent access to Route 44, the eastern path out of Mahogany, until the Radio Tower has been returned to normal. After defeating the impostor station manager in the fifth floor office, the main character will receive the Basement Key, which opens up a sealed area of the Goldenrod Tunnel. Upon finding the real station manager in the second basement of the Goldenrod Department Store, he will give the main character a Card Key to open the door on the third floor that separates the upper floors of the tower in two. With the Card Key in tow, the main character can ascend to the fifth floor studio to defeat the final Rocket Executive, effectively disbanding the organization. To show his gratitude, the station manager will give the main character a Rainbow Wing in Gold/HeartGold, a Silver Wing in Silver/SoulSilver, or a Clear Bell in Pokémon Crystal.

Places of interest

Studios

In Pokémon Gold and Silver, the station had two studios, located on the fourth and fifth floors. A third studio was added in Pokémon Crystal on the second floor, to accommodate Buena's new radio show. In every version, the tower has a welcome center, as well as a computer linked to Bill's PC and the player's personal computer, on the first floor and a small café on the second floor. The technical operations of the tower are handled by way of a network of computers on the third and fourth floors. The Director's office is found on the fifth floor.

Broadcasted programs

Many programs are broadcasted from the tower, with most being produced in-house.
