Pokémon world locations

The Hallowed Tower (Japanese: みたまのとう Honored Spirit's Tower) is a crumbling tower located on Route 209. On it is an inscription that is unreadable until an Odd Keystone is placed on it. It is the only location of Spiritomb in Sinnoh.

Obtaining Spiritomb in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum

In Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum Versions, to acquire Spiritomb, the player must:

  1. Go to Route 209 and place an Odd Keystone in the tower.
  2. Enter the Underground and talk to other players a total of 32 times.
  3. Interact with the Hallowed Tower. A level 25 Spiritomb will appear, and a battle with it will begin immediately.

Players refers to actual people playing the game, who appear in the Underground via DS Wireless Connection. Talking to the NPC vendors or traders will not count towards the total needed to summon Spiritomb.

It is important to note that one does not need to talk to 32 different players (it can be the same person 32 times, 32 different people, or a combination of both). However, one of the players may have to leave the main part of the Underground between interactions for each one to count. Entering and leaving a Secret Base also counts as having left the Underground. The number of players the player has talked to can be checked in the Underground by selecting the menu and viewing the Trainer Card. The number of people met is the number of players one has talked to.

Spiritomb can be summoned multiple times; however, the player will need to repeat the requirements: a new Odd Keystone to place and another 32 player characters to interact with.

Based on the amount of players the player has talked to, the game will display various messages, such as, "It appears to have been built many years ago." (0-7), "Its stones appear to have shifted..." (8-14), "...Is that crying coming from inside the tower?" (15-21), "Is the tower shaking ever so slightly?" (22-28), or "There is some sort of presence... It appears ready to emerge!" (29-31).

In the anime

The Hallowed Tower in an old woman's tale in the anime

The Hallowed Tower appeared in the episode The Keystone Pops!. Ash and Dawn accidentally released Spiritomb from it after it was enclosed 500 years ago by the Aura Guardian.
