Should this be "Burned Tower"? That's what it's named on the map and such. -Happy Mask Man 02:41, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Oops!

I have somethig interesting... There are big errors in this article and I think in Tin Tower's too. Here I have the proof, the legend told by the second member of the Wise Trio (sage Masa):


"In the past, there were two nine-tier towers here. The BRASS TOWER, which was said to awaken POKéMON, and the TIN TOWER, where POKéMON were said to rest. The view from the tops of the TOWERS must have been magnificent. At the time, an immense, silver-colored POKéMON was said to make its roost atop the BRASS TOWER. Howerver... About 150 years ago, a lightning bolt struck one of the TOWERS. It was engulfed in flames that raged for three days. A sudden downpour finally put out the blaze. And that is how the BURNED TOWER came to be."

So there you have info to update these pages, and remember: Lugia used to roost atop Brass Tower and Ho-Oh atop Tin Tower. hfc2X 22:09, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

I think the war that was mentioned in the article came from the anime continuity, but I'm not sure of the details. You're right about the symbolism: "The legendary POKéMON are said to embody three powers... The lightning that struck the TOWER. The fire that burned the TOWER. And the rain that put out the fire..."

Weezing

Weezing is found in this tower in Crystal version I played, please add it. - unsigned comment from Evanthebouncy (talkcontribs)

Pokemon theory

is it confirmed that entei, raikou and suicune were residing there? i mean, when ho-oh revived them, it might have changed their looks, to make them legendaries. i personally think the Pokemon who died were a jolteon, flareon and vaporeon. it would match the types and ... i have no other argument but it seemed a interesting theory...Empath-Silvio 17:57, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Brass Tower Image

Where did the image of the non-damaged Brass tower come from? I can only remember it being damaged. Solar Dragon 20:43, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

In Gold and Silver, it was just short because they were lazy. Crystal updated it so it looked wrecked. HGSS made it AWESOME. TTEchidna 20:40, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

By the way guys

Brass is GOLD. Tin is SILVER. I don't care what was on top. You can pick Squirtle in Red and Bulbasaur in Blue. TTEchidna 20:51, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Gold or Silver

This article says that it has gold colored panels at one point in the article, but at another point it says silver. Which one is it? --HoennMaster 05:17, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Brass Tower

I can understand why the page was moved to "Burned Tower" (because of Bell Tower, though I think that this one also shouldn't be moved to begin with), it annoys me that the name "Brass Tower" is now just briefly mentioned in the Trivia section, as if it was something meaningless and/or outdated. But this is actually THE PROPER NAME OF THAT TOWER. The fact that the name wasn't mentioned in HGSS does not mean that it's non-canon or out of date. We should use the facts that we know, as long as they're confirmed without any contradiction. I can see why people think that "Bell Tower" and "Brass Tower" don't fit together (again, NoA's stupidity) but it's not a reason to relegate it to the very bottom of the page next to all those unimportant, useless informations. This is still the Tower's real name, as it hasn't always been burned. If some future Johto games (as long as there will be such games, odds are unlikely for now) feature a different name for "Kane-no tou", then we should use it. But for now, we should consider the name "Brass Tower" as the real canon name. I'm not telling to move the page, just give this fact some more attention. It's the same for all other things that weren't referenced in HGSS - this doesn't make them non-canon! --Maxim 13:41, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

"Unsatisfactory" Images

This article is categorized in "Articles needing better pictures," however I feel that the images do not need improvement, and the category should be removed. Pigyman 20:19, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

While the pictures themselves may not need improvement, the article is in the category because it is missing some crucial images (certain HGSS screenshots). {{bad picture}} is used for both unsatisfactory images and missing images, but puts them all into one category.--Cold (talk) 20:24, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Ether on 1F

The hidden ether is not found in Crystal version. I tried to change it and failed :/ - unsigned comment from Mhults (talkcontribs)

Fixed. --SnorlaxMonster 13:43, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Wise trio quotes

This is not listed anywhere, so I thought we should include these quotes in some article regarding the towers. These are the quotes from the Wise Trio after catching Suicune in Crystal:

Sage 1:
"According to legend...
When the souls of POKéMON and humans commune, from the heavens descends a POKéMON of rainbow colors...
Could it mean the legendary POKéMON are testing us humans?"

Sage 2:
"When the BRASS TOWER burned down, three nameless POKéMON were said to have perished. It was tragic.
However...
A rainbow-colored POKéMON...
In other words...
HO-OH descended from the sky and gave new life to the three POKéMON. They are...
SUICUNE, ENTEI and RAIKOU.

That is what they say."

Sage 3:
"The two TOWERS are said to have been built to foster friendship and hope between POKéMON and people. That was 700 years ago, but the ideal still remains important today."

Problem with Picture

I noticed that there is a problem with the B1F HGSS image. I uploaded a full image to archives and requested the old image moved (which it was). On archives the image is correct but here it isn't. Can that be fixed? Adamws (talk) 05:22, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
