'''Sprout Tower''' (Japanese: '''マダツボミのとう''' ''{{tt|Madatsubomi|Bellsprout}} Tower'') is a large pagoda located in [[Violet City]] in [[Johto]]. The tower itself is over 100 feet tall and is held together by a giant flexible pillar that shakes from side to side. This flexibility protects the tall tower from earthquakes and symbolizes the battles that are occurring on upper floors. This technology is now known as [[jwp:柔構造|柔構造]] ''jūkōzō'', and applied to hundreds of modern high-rise buildings. Legend has it that a 100-foot-tall {{p|Bellsprout}} was used to make the swaying pillar. It is inhabited by monks who study diligently and teach that all living beings coexist through cooperation. These monks solelyprimarily train {{p|Bellsprout}}, andbut occasionally use {{p|Hoothoot}} as well.

Sprout Tower is a three tiered tower with multiple eaves. Like the [[BellFile:Sprout Tower]] and the [[Burned Tower]], it is constructed solely out of wood, creating a multi-story effectGSC. The design of Sprout Tower is inspired by Buddhist temples in the Nara Prefecture of Japan, such as {{wppng|Kōfuku-ji}} and {{wpthumb|right|Hōryū-ji}} temples. Surrounding the tower is a beautiful lake in the center of Violet City, hosting several architectural bridges making its way across the water. Sprout Tower is dedicated to the gentle and peaceful nature of {{p|Bellsprout}}. The giant spine-like pillar located in theGeneration center of the tower acts as a support for the old tower structure, and it even protects the tall tower from sudden earthquakes. It is said that the main swaying pillar was, in fact, once a 100-foot-tall Bellsprout.II]]

==Walking Pokémon effects==
When interacting with [[walking Pokémon]] in {{v2|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, the Pokémon may occasionally show an altered mood specific to this location.
*{{p|Bellsprout}} sways and dances around in a strange manner.
*All walking Pokémon, including Bellsprout, become happy from dancing around the swaying pillar. They are also concerned about the pillar, sniff at the floor while being surprised by the sound it is making, and sometimes slip while seeming likely to fall over.
 
==In the anime==

===In the Pokémon Adventures manga===
[[File:The Sprout Tower Adventures.png(referred to as the "Bellsprout Pagoda" in the [[Chuang Yi]] translation) appeared in ''[[PS097|thumbBellsprout Rout]]'' and ''[[PS098|SproutTotodile TowerRock]]'', inwhere Pokémon{{adv|Gold}} Adventureswent there to search for {{adv|Silver}}. Along the way, he encountered a group of six {{tc|Sage}}s and defeated their {{p|Bellsprout}} using [[Exbo]]. Gold then found Silver and challenged him to a battle. However, during the battle, Exbo's {{m|Smokescreen}} triggered a hidden boulder trap, forcing the two Trainers to team up to stop it. Afterwards, both of them escaped the tower, with Silver's {{p|Totodile}} evolving into {{TP|Silver|Croconaw}} in the process.
{{adv|Gold-}} goes in the Sprout Tower in ''[[PS097|Bellsprout Rout]]'' to search for {{adv|Silver}}. He encounters six {{tc|Sage}}s along the way and he defeats their {{p|Bellsprout}} using [[Exbo]]. Gold finds Silver on the third floor and they have a battle in ''[[PS098|Totodile Rock]]''. However, the battle was called off as Exbo's {{m|SmokeScreen}} activates a trap set by the monks. Exbo and {{TP|Silver|Totodile}} work together to defeat the trap. Silver and Totodile flee Sprout Tower with Totodile evolving into {{p|Croconaw}} in the process.

==In the TCG==
The Sprout Tower was featured in the {{Trading Card Game}}. The following is a list of cards named '''Sprout Tower'''.
* It is actually possible to use {{m|Dig}} to escape from Sprout Tower—even the top floor—and return to the entrance; this is because, as can be seen from the in-battle background used in [[Generation IV]], Sprout Tower is classified as a cave area, rather than a building, likely to allow wild Pokémon to be found. This is also the case with the [[Bell Tower]] and [[Burned Tower]].
** Due to this, unlike other buildings, {{p|Burmy}} will take on its Sandy Cloak, rather than its Trash Cloak, if it battles here.
* InDuring the development of [[ChuangSuper Smash Bros. YiMelee]]'s translation of, [[PokémonMasahiro AdventuresSakurai]], had plans for a Sprout Tower isstage namedbut thethis '''Bellsproutwas Pagoda'''scrapped very early in development.<ref>[https://www.nintendo.co.jp/n01/n64/software/nus_p_nalj/smash/flash/syukeiken/return520.html Sakurai discussing content for Super Smash Bros. Melee while it was still in development]</ref>
