The Pokémon Tower is a tower located in Lavender Town in the Kanto region. The Pokémon Tower first appeared Pokémon Red and Blue. The Pokémon Tower is a burial site for Pokémon that have died, and serves as a memorial for Pokémon. In Generation 2 and 4, the tower was changed into a Radio Tower and the Ghost type Pokémon lived there was taken away by the DJ's in Radio Tower.


Generation I


This is an example of a ghost encountered without a Silph Scope.

The first time the player ventures into the Pokémon Tower, he or she usually does not have the Silph Scope. Without the Silph Scope, the player encounters unidentifiable ghosts that cannot be fought. When the player has received the Silph Scope, the ghosts are revealed to be a Gastly, Haunter, or Cubone in most encounters. At the top of the tower, there is a staircase leading to where Mr. Fuji is being held captive by Team Rocket, however, the restless ghost of a dead mother Marowak attacks the player.

Generation II

The Pokémon Tower completely changed in Generation II. It became the Kanto Radio Tower. The new radio tower was just like Goldenrod's, but there is a guard that keeps the player from going upstairs. The graves located in the Pokémon Tower were relocated into a small house called Soul House. The Soul House is located at south end of Lavender Town. In generation IV, the Soul House's name was changed to "House of Memories".
