Pokémon world locations

The Pokémon Tower (Japanese: ポケモンタワー Pokémon Tower) is a seven-story tower located in Lavender Town in the region of Kanto. On all seven floors, the tower houses hundreds of graves of deceased Pokémon. Many people visit the building daily to pay their respects to the fallen. On all floors other than the first two, though, the possibility of being attacked by wild Pokémon is present. In Generation II and Generation IV, the tower was converted into the Lavender Radio Tower, undergoing a similar transformation to the Power Plant to the north.

Aside from graves, the tower is home to wild Cubone as well as many Template:Type2 Pokémon. In Generation I and Generation III, Team Rocket tried to steal the Cubone to sell their valuable skulls. In the process, a mother Marowak that was protecting her Cubone child was killed. The ghost of the mother Marowak haunted the tower until Red/Leaf was able to knock it out, setting her spirit free. The Marowak that appears here cannot be caught, even if a Master Ball is used. Mr. Fuji attempted to confront the poachers, but ended up being taken hostage himself and required the help of the main character to be released. As a show of gratitude, Mr. Fuji gives the main character the Poké Flute.

The Ghost-type Pokémon in the tower appear to have a unique ability to disguise themselves as the ghosts of humans. However, a Silph Scope will reveal their true natures and identity, allowing the Pokémon to be engaged in battle. Any Pokémon who attempts to fight ghosts without a Silph Scope will be "too scared to move."

A special spot on the fifth floor has been made into a wild Pokémon-free healing area. In the original games, the Channeler next to it makes a reference to white magic about it. This was edited out in the later games.

Differences among generations

In Generation II and IV only, the tower was converted into a Radio Tower, broadcasting music and radio programs, including the Poké Flute channel, to the radios and Pokégear of Kanto. Unlike the Goldenrod Radio Tower in Goldenrod City, only one floor, the ground floor, is open to the public as a result of Team Rocket's infiltration of the Goldenrod tower. It is also interesting to note that the stairs in Generation II lead down into a basement instead of up into the tower, but the player is blocked by a guard.

After restoring power to Kanto by fixing the generator at the Power Plant, trainers can receive the EXPN Card from the manager of the tower, allowing Pokégears to tune into the Poké Flute channel, which can be used to move Snorlax from its slumber in front of Diglett's Cave in Vermilion City.

To compensate for the loss of the burial site, the graves were moved to a small building, the House of Memories, known as the Soul House in Generation II, at the south end of the town. Most of them were placed in secret chambers that only Mr. Fuji knows about.

In the first releases of Generation I in Japan, the music in Pokemon Tower contained a high pitched track in the background that was edited out in the American remakes, and Generation III. The same is true for Lavender Town.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

The Pokémon Tower debuted in Sigh for Psyduck and again in That Awful Arbok! in the Red, Green & Blue chapter. A man living in Lavender Town told Red about ghosts and that his rival Blue had not come back for months. So Red went there to investigate and found many gravestones. Then a Psyduck came out from behind the shadows only to find out it was a zombie, then other zombie Pokémon came out.

Red decided to attack with Bulbasaur's Razor Leaf to only do nothing, until Bulbasaur used Vine Whip which turned it to dust and bones. Suddenly all the other zombie Pokémon started attacking, under the control of a ghost.

Red then saw Blue with his Charmeleon started attacking Red, suddenly a Gastly appeared only to be attacked by Blue which took the curse of Blue and his Charmeleon with a bit of help from Red. Suddenly, Koga appeared with an Arbok which was spewing venom everywhere. After a big battle Blue's Charmeleon cut Arbok in half, and Koga made a hasty getaway with his Golbat. Mr. Fuji's Doduo had a place to rest in peace.

Pokémon

Most of the Pokémon were Zombies.

Trivia

  • When the player battles Blue, he no longer owns the Raticate (Rattata in Pokémon Yellow) that he used in previous battles. This, in addition to the fact that he asks the player why he or she is there when none of his or her Pokémon are dead while giving no explanation for his own presence there, may imply that Blue's Rattata/Raticate has passed away.
