The Celestial Tower is a tall tower with three inner floors connected by spiral staircases. Like certain buildings in other regions, it is a resting place for deceased Pokémon. At the top of the tower is a bell, which mourners can ring in remembrance of their lost Pokémon. The bell's sound is said to reflect the nature of the one who rang it.
In Pokémon Black and White, the player must come here before the Mistralton City Gym Leader, Skyla, will agree to a Pokémon battle. She has come here to care for a fainted Flying-type Pokémon she saw while flying her plane. After she has healed the Pokémon, she insists the player rings the bell at the top of the tower. Later in the game, the player can meet ChampionAlder here, ringing the bell to comfort the spirit of his very first Pokémon. Before he leaves the tower, he mentions that he and his Pokémon were madly pursuing strength, much in the same way that Cheren does. He will also challenge the player to return to the Pokémon League once more.
In Pokémon Black and White 2, Professor Juniper comes here to continue her research into how the distribution of Pokémon in Unova has changed over the past two years. After entering the Hall of Fame, the player can speak to a newlywedcouple in Humilau City, which will activate a small quest where the player must defeat four former acquaintances of the bridegroom in order to climb the Celestial Tower and ring its bell. The Celestial Tower is also the location where Mesprit is encountered for battle later in the game (Waterfall required to reach Cave of Being, in order to release Uxie, Azelf, and Mesprit to the wild).
In Up in the Air, Black and Clay arrived at the tower, where they met Burgh, Brycen, Elesa, and Skyla in a meeting, concerning the Gym Leaders' plan to secure the Dark Stone from Team Plasma. While the other Gym Leaders were discussing the matter, Skyla suddenly grabbed Black, and flew out of the tower to grab an injured Pidove in the air and carried it and Black to the top of the tower. There she healed the Pokémon, whose presence she had felt in the tower. Skyla asked Black to ring the bell, and after hearing the toll, she declared it did not sound clear and shoved him off the edge the tower. She said that she was not yet convinced of his capabilities. Her Swanna grabbed Black in the air and carried him to the Mistralton Gym so that Skyla could test Black in a battle.
After Black beat Skyla in The Battle Within, she left the Gym to rejoin with the other Gym Leaders without handing Black the Badge, but instead had her Gym cannon blast Black straight back to the top of the Celestial Tower. Black rung the bell once more, and Skyla sent her Swanna to him to give him a Jet Badge.
