'''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.
 
==Geography==
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]].

The Sprout Tower (referred to as the "Bellsprout Pagoda" in the [[Chuang Yi]] translation) appeared in ''[[PS097|Bellsprout Rout]]'' and ''[[PS098|Totodile Rock]]'', where {{adv|Gold}} went 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.

* 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.
