According to legend, this tower is home to the legendary Pokémon, Ho-Oh.
The Burned Tower used to be as tall as the Bell Tower before it got burned down in a mysterious fire 150 years prior to the events of Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal and their remakes. Lugia also used to live here, moving to Whirl Islands when the tower burned down. The legendary beasts: Raikou, Entei and Suicune can be encountered for the first time in the basement, after which they flee. It is also the place where Silver will challenge the player character for the third time.
Kimono Dance Theater
The Kimono Dance Theater is where the player character meets and battles the Kimono Girls. Each of them has an evolution of Eevee. After defeating them the player character will be awarded the HM for Surf.

- A house that one cannot enter in Olivine City features a character that speaks of a pharmacist in Ecruteak City who had treated her Pokémon, despite the pharmacy being in Cianwood City instead. This is either a mistranslation, or a hint of the pharmacy originally being in Ecruteak City in the Beta version of Pokémon Gold and Silver. Evidence of the latter is that there's another inaccessible house in Ecruteak City, near the Mart and PokéCenter.
- The Cianwood City theme is same as the Ecruteak City theme in Pokémon Gold and Silver. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the music is unique but has the same base.
