The '''Pokémon Tower''' (Japanese: '''ポケモンタワー''' ''Pokémon Tower'') is a seven-story tower located in [[Lavender Town]] in the region of [[Kanto]]. On all seven floors, the tower houses hundreds of graves of deceased {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}. Many people visit the building daily to pay their respects to the fallen. On all floors other than the first two, though, the possibility of being attacked by [[wild Pokémon]] is present. In [[Generation]]s {{gen|II}} and {{gen|IV}}, the tower was converted into the '''Lavender Radio Tower''', undergoing a similar transformation to the [[Kanto Power Plant]] to the north.
 
Aside from graves, the tower is home to wild {{p|Cubone}} as well as many {{type|Ghost}} Pokémon. In [[Generation I]] and [[Generation III]], [[Team Rocket]] tried to steal the Cubone to sell their valuable skulls. In the process, a mother {{p|Marowak}} that was protecting her Cubone child was killed. {{OBP|Ghost|literal|The ghost}} of the mother Marowak haunted the tower until {{ga|Red}}/{{ga|Leaf}} was able to knock it out, setting her spirit free. The {{OBP|Marowak|ghost}} that appears here cannot be caught, even if a [[Master Ball]] is used. [[Mr. Fuji]] attempted to confront the poachers, but ended up being taken hostage himself and required the help of the main character to be released. As a show of gratitude, Mr. Fuji gives the main character the [[Poké Flute]].

In [[Generation II]] and {{gen|IV}}, the tower was converted into a Radio Tower, broadcasting music and radio programs, including the [[Poké Flute]] channel, to the radios and [[Pokégear]] of Kanto. Unlike the [[Goldenrod Radio Tower]] in [[Goldenrod City]], only one floor, the ground floor, is open to the public as a result of [[Team Rocket]]'s infiltration of the Goldenrod tower. The stairs in [[Generation II]] lead down into a basement instead of up into the tower, but the player is blocked by a guard.
 
After restoring power to Kanto by fixing the generator at the [[Kanto Power Plant]], Trainers can receive the {{DL|Pokégear|Radio|EXPN Card}} from the manager of the tower, allowing Pokégears to tune into the Poké Flute channel, which can be used to move {{p|Snorlax}} from its slumber in front of [[Diglett's Cave]] in [[Vermilion City]].
 
To compensate for the loss of the burial site, the graves were moved to a small building, the House of Memories, known as the Soul House in Generation II, at the south end of the town. Most of them were placed in secret chambers that only Mr. Fuji knows about.
==Trivia==
* There is {{weather|fog}} here in [[Generation III]], but it has no in-battle effect. This is because fog was not used as a {{cat|game mechanics|game mechanic}} until [[Generation IV]].
* In Generation I, it is possible to skip the sequence with the level 30 [[Ghost (literal){{OBP|ghost]]|literal}} by using a [[Poké Doll]], making it possible to progress without obtaining the [[Silph Scope]] first.
* Contrary to popular belief, there was only ever one version of the background music for this location.
