Bell Tower 1F
The Bell Tower is a location of Johto, positioned on the eastern side of Ecruteak City. Ho-Oh formerly perched at the top of this ten-story tower, but flew away after the other tower in the west of Ecruteak City burned down mysteriously. It is considered a place of high sanctity among people in Johto, and not everyone is qualified to enter it.
The Bell Tower was once the perch of the legendary Ho-Oh; however, long ago, Ho-Oh flew away, never to return. Many Trainers came to the tower, hoping to cause Ho-Oh to return to the tower, but no one had yet been successful. History
Seven hundred years ago, two nine-tier towers were built opposite each other in Ecruteak City. The towers were built to foster friendship and hope between Pokémon and people. The view from the top of the towers was said to be magnificent.
The eastern tower was said to awaken Pokémon, while the western tower was where Pokémon were said to rest, a similarity to the Hoenn region's Cave of Origin and Mt. Pyre, respectively. Ho-Oh roosted at the top of the Bell Tower to the east.
However, about 150 years ago, a lightning bolt struck the western tower. It was engulfed in flames that raged for three days. A sudden downpour finally put out the blaze, but it had already burnt to the ground. Three nameless Pokémon perished in the fire, but Ho-Oh descended from the sky and resurrected them. The Pokémon are said to embody three powers: the lightning that struck the tower, the fire that burned the tower, and the rain that put out the fire. When the Pokémon appeared, they struck terror in those who saw their rise. The three Pokémon, knowing their own power, fled, running like the wind off into the grassland.
