Pokémon world locations

Dragonspiral Tower (Japanese: リュウラセンの塔 Dragonspiral Tower) is an old tower where ZekromBB2/ReshiramWW2 was sealed in the Dark StoneBB2/Light StoneWW2 after the war thousands of years ago, until it was awoken by N. It is located in the western part of Unova, just above Icirrus City. Though it is not known who built it or when it was built, it is the oldest structure in Unova. It is said this is where legendary Pokémon are created and slumber.

ReshiramB/ZekromW can be found here after the credits if the player had a full party and PC when prompted to catch them at N's Castle, because players are not forced to catch them under these circumstances.

If the player brings the Dark StoneB2/Light StoneW2 to the top of the tower after receiving it from N, ZekromB2/ReshiramW2 will turn back into its regular form from its Dragon Stone form, allowing the player to capture it.

Dragonspiral Tower in the anime

In the anime, the Dragonspiral Tower is located near the White Ruins, as first stated in New Places... Familiar Faces! by Cedric Juniper. Even though the tower's interior was never visited in the anime, it served as a recognizable landmark for Ash and his friends during their journey to the White Ruins.

The tower made its first proper appearance in Secrets From Out of the Fog!, where Ash, Cilan, and Iris were transported near it by N, Anthea, and Concordia. Recognizing it as the Dragonspiral Tower, Ash and his friends realized they were nearing their destination. In Ash and N: A Clash of Ideals!, Ash and company went to see the tower more closely. Cilan proceeded to explain about how it is said to be the oldest tower in Unova, and how no one seems to know who or why it had been built.

In the manga

Dragonspiral Tower in Pocket Monsters BW: The Heroes of Fire and Thunder

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In Finding Truth, after succesfully stealing the Dark Stone at the Nacrene Museum, Ghetsis brought the stone to the tower where N was waiting for him. N awakened Zekrom from its slumber, and managed to convince it to join his cause.

In the Pocket Monsters BW: The Heroes of Fire and Thunder manga

The Dragonspiral Tower appeared in The King's Identity...!! where the battle between Shin and N's Reshiram and Zekrom took place.


Trivia

  • The cycling and surfing themes aren't used outside the tower. It is not possible to use the Bicycle inside the tower.
  • Dragonspiral Tower's background music, リュウラセンの塔 Dragonspiral Tower, bears strong resemblances to fellow Nintendo platform compositions 樹海の神秘 Jukai no Shimpi (transl. "Mystery of the Forest", from Chrono Trigger) and 神殿ダンジョン Shinden Danjon (transl. "Sanctuary Dungeon", from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past).
    • It is commonly misattributed as the background music of the Celestial Tower, which is where it is first encountered during standard gameplay.
  • As the player ascends Dragonspiral Tower in Pokémon White, Reshiram's rampage is signaled by an unidentified character shouting "Burn, baby, burn!" while Reshiram's cry plays. This is a reference to the chorus of the 1976 song "Disco Inferno". The corresponding text in Pokémon Black, shouted while Zekrom's cry plays, is "It's shocking!!"
    • Curiously, no speech is present in the Japanese versions, where the shouted text is merely onomatopoeia accompanying the cries of Reshiram and Zekrom—"モエルーワ!" and "バリバリダー!! respectively.
