The Battle Tower (Japanese: バトルタワー Battle Tower) in Generation IV is a special post-Pokémon League facility appearing in both Sinnoh and Johto. Functionally, the Battle Towers in both regions are identical.
In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, the Battle Tower is located in the Battle Park, while in Pokémon Platinum, it is in the Battle Frontier, but both of these locations are accessed from the Fight Area of the Battle Zone. The player cannot travel to the Battle Zone until they have entered the Hall of Fame.
In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the Battle Tower is located in the Battle Frontier west of Olivine City. The player will not be allowed to enter the Battle Frontier until they have entered the Hall of Fame.
Upon defeating 100 Trainers in a row in Single Battle mode, the player will earn a Trainer star.
The Battle Points earned for challenging the Battle Tower can be redeemed for prizes at the Exchange Service Corner, in the Battle ParkDP outside the Battle Tower or in the Battle FrontierPtHGSS square. In the Battle Frontier square, the player may also use Battle Points to buy Scratch-Off Cards to play.
- Diamond and Pearl
- Platinum, HeartGold, and SoulSilver
The common thread among all of the challenges is that the player will always face "Rooms" of opponents, with seven opponents in each room who the player must defeat all in a row. After beating a room, the player will earn Battle Points.
The middle receptionist offers the Battle Room challenge. The player may choose the Single Battle format, with battles of three on three, or the Double Battle format, with battles of four on four.
The leftmost receptionist offers the Multi Battle Room challenge, a tag team challenge. Before the challenge begins, the player may choose a computer-controlled partner from among the five Stat Trainers, each of whom specializes in a different stat; or the player may partner with a nearby friend using the DS Wireless Communication. In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, each of the computer-controlled partners also appears outside of the Battle Tower in Sinnoh and will temporarily partner with the player to navigate an area. In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, in order for the player to choose one of them as a partner in the Battle Tower, they must have already partnered with that person and cleared their area; in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, they are all always available.

The rightmost receptionist offers the Wi-Fi Battle Room challenge. In this challenge, opposing teams are randomly downloaded via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection from other players who challenged the Wi-Fi Battle Room.
When the player finishes a room, they can choose to upload their results via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. The Wi-Fi Battle Rooms are operated on a ranking system, and if the player does well enough, they can become the leader of a room.
After winning 20 and 48 battles consecutively in the Single Battle Room, Tower Tycoon Palmer will offer the player a challenge. Defeating him yields 20 BP each time.

The Battle Tower first appeared in Deprogramming Porygon-Z as a part of the Battle Frontier. By the end of the Platinum chapter, it remained the only Battle Frontier facility yet to be challenged by Platinum, although she was seen accepting Palmer's invitation there in The Final Dimensional Duel XI.
- Although the sprites for the attendants of the Battle Tower in Platinum had been changed to match the rest of the Battle Frontier, while choosing a partner for a multi battle, the attendant's sprite was accidentally left unchanged from what it was in Diamond and Pearl. The same applies for when an attendant appears to award a trophy.
