Ecruteak City

Ecruteak City

Welcome to Ecruteak, a historical city where the past meets the present. The city is shrouded in mystery, as all but one of Johto's legendary Pokémon have ties to the area. The area has its share of unique landmarks, including the Kimono Dance Theater and the twin towers; the Burned Tower in the west, and the Tin Tower in the east.

Bill's Time Capsule

Stop by the Poké Center to meet Bill, the inventor of the PC Storage System. It seems that he has just finished working on the Time Capsule, a service found in every Poké Center that allows a Trainer to "trade with the past". This means that you can now trade between Gold and Silver and the Generation I games. The Time Capsule will take until the next day to be fully operational.

Find That Treasure!

Stop by the house to the right of the Gym, and talk to the man inside. He gives you the Itemfinder, a handy tool that reacts to hidden items lying nearby. It's a treasure hunter's best friend!

Ecruteak Dance Theater

The dance hall is owned by the Kimono Girls, five sisters that each train one of Eevee's evolutions. Speak to the man with his Rhydon after defeating them to receive HM03 (Surf) as thanks.

Burned Tower

The charred, crumbling ruins of the Burned Tower can be found in the city's northwest district. Formerly known as the Brass Tower, it was once as majestic as the Tin Tower to the east. Built 700 years ago, it was said to be the roost of an immense, silver-colored Pokémon. But 150 years ago, the tower was struck by a lightning bolt that ignited a fire that raged for three days. The silver Pokémon and the glorious, rainbow-colored Pokémon that roosted on Tin Tower escaped to the skies unharmed, and a sudden downpour quenched the fire. The silver Pokémon flew off, while the rainbow Pokémon resurrected three nameless Pokémon that perished in the blaze before flying off as well.

When you enter the tower, you are immediately approached by Eusine, a researcher of the legendary beasts who is especially interested in Suicune. The local Gym Leader, Morty, is also here investigating the trio. Walk to the center area, where your rival complains about not seeing Suicune before challenging you to a battle.

The battle causes the weakened floor to crumble, and you fall to the floor below, landing in front of the three legendary beasts. They do not react at first, but awaken when you approach them. Raikou and Entei run off immediately, but Suicune pauses for a moment before following the others. Eusine meets you on your way out, and thanks you for waking Suicune.

Tin Tower

The Tin Tower is a sacred place, and is off-limits to all but a few people. A group of monks known as the Wise Trio prevent anyone from reaching the tower for now. Two special items are required to enter and scale the tower.

Ecruteak Gym

Ecruteak Gym

The Mystic Seer
of the Future

The Ecruteak Gym is dedicated to Ghost-types. These spirits take double the damage from Ghost- and Dark-type attacks, and are normally unaffected by Normal- and Fighting-type attacks. However, a Pokémon with Foresight can disable these immunities. Bring along some extra Potions, since two of Morty's Pokémon know Curse, which drains the target's health every turn. It's also good to bring a few Awakenings in order to disrupt his Gengar's Hypnosis-Dream Eater combo.

Ecruteak Gym
The Fog Badge

Morty awards you the Fog Badge, which ensures obedience from all Pokémon up to level 50, and enables the use of Surf outside of battle. He also gives out TM30 (Shadow Ball) as a prize.

West of here lies Route 38.

Route 38

Route 38

Route 38 connects Ecruteak City to Route 39 in the west, near the MooMoo Farm. On your way west, you can trade phone numbers with Schoolboy Chad for alerts about Snubbull swarms. Register Lass Dana's number and she'll call for a rematch; defeat her again to get a ThunderStone.

Route 39

Route 39

Route 39 stretches between Route 38 and Olivine City. The MooMoo Farm is located here, but one of their Miltank has stopped producing milk. The only way for it to recover is to feed it a handful of Berries. Once it has recovered, speak to the man in the farmhouse to get TM13 (Snore). He also begins selling MooMoo Milk for PokémonDollar.png500 per serving.
