'''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 primarily train {{p|Bellsprout}}, but occasionally use {{p|Hoothoot}} as well.
Sprout Tower is three stories tall. The ground floor is for tourists, who come to see the unique style in which the tower is built. There are two upper levels, which are dedicated to Pokémon training. There, monks study diligently, train their gentle {{p|Bellsprout}}, and come to learn that all living beings coexist through cooperation. The monks of the tower train {{p|Bellsprout}}, each having at least one in his [[party]]; others have occasionally trained {{p|Hoothoot}} as well. The upper floors are also riddled with {{pkmn2|wild}} {{p|Rattata}} that inhabit the wooden pillars and columns; as night falls, ghosts are said to appear in the tower, in the form of {{p|Gastly}}.
In the games, when the {{player}} first encounters the Elder, [[Li]], he has just been defeated by {{ga|Silver}}, who uses an [[Escape Rope]] to exit the tower easily. After defeating the Elder, the player will receive {{m|Flash}}, an [[HM]] in [[Generation II]] and a [[TM]] in [[Generation IV]].

==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 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>[ Sakurai discussing content for Super Smash Bros. Melee while it was still in development]</ref>
