This could be related to the GBU, nobody really knows.
Can't get here without hacking atm.

Interesting place... wonder what they are saying. And it looks like there are 100 floors whatever it is, or maybe I'm reading it wrong.

intresting, I think it was suppose to be the battle tower of Gen 5

Seems a lot of places online are talking about it, I'm interested as to why it has so many floors, are they really needed? Aaand, as for a Battle Tower, that's unlikely, because there's already the Battle Subway that takes the role of that.

Maybe its where you can get an event pokemon?

No, that would be the Battle Subway :P

For some reason I thought of downloadable expansion packs of new areas. Not really routes though, but just new areas with unobtainable Pokemon spread out.

And I know it's in a tower, but that is the most likely place for something like that if it were to occur because then they wouldn't have to add expansions to the map as well.

Very unlikely that this is true. Just a hope. ^_^

Some people are saying its like the Battle Cafe in Platinum. Where in each floor, an important trainer will be there waiting for a battle.

Some are saying Gary oak will be on the final floor.

Remember this is all here say, no solid facts. Can't wait to find out though.

The United Tower

Hidden away in the seas on the south of Isshu is another island. Accessible after you receive an item from an event, you can gain access to the United Tower through the boat in the United Pier in Hiun City. When you arrive on the island, you will find just a single solitary tower. This is the United Tower.

http://www.serebii.net/blackwhite/unitedtower.png


When you enter the tower, you will be stopped by security who will explain that trainers come from far away in order to battle here. He will say that they run security checks to make sure that the younger trainers are safe and will then allow you to battle on. The Tower is a 130 floor tower which will allow you to enter any floor in order to battle trainers.

http://www.serebii.net/blackwhite/unitedtowerlift.png

It is currently unknown how to add trainers to the floors, but it is likely that it'll be over the Nintendo WiFi Connection. We'll bring more details as and when we get them.


I'm thinking in: maybe this is the end of the Pokémon World Championships? For me, this method will be great in that you don't have to wait for hours before entering the Championships and it would be confortable for all of these players who don't live in London, Paris, Madrid, Tokyo, etc.

And I think this is the reason of why the Black and White OST contains a track named "Battle VS World Pokémon Champion"...

Ooh the tower looks so pretty from that angle <3

So you get access due to an event? Sucks if it's only due to the Championships though, accessing the island normally would be nice, since the tower does look nice. Interesting idea to include it, though.

Oh really I was thinking that it might have been the original battle tower but decided to do the subway instead but it seems like its it's own place...huh why so many floors?

October 11th, 2010, 07:24 AM
Yeah I hope it's not just for Championships. I think it'd just be cool to be able to download Trainer profiles and their teams from WiFi and then just be able to battle them in this tower. To me, this is what it seems to be.

Either way, I'm really excited to find out what its true purpose is.

Either way, Gary Oak won't be on the final floor because he is an anime character. It will be Green/Blue, upon whom Gary is based. Sorry to be pedantic but I am stunned at how many fans of the franchise don't understand that they are completely seperate characters.

It is a Mysterious thing though. I'm amazed as to why its taken nearly a month for this to be discovered.

It's been a month, I agree I find that odd its taken so long.

I do like its concept though. If it has wifi capabilities, similar to what JP said, it would be pretty cool to battle other actual people.

I don't think the trainer in the last floor is Green/Blue, because his sprite doesn't exist in the games.

Why would there be an event item from Wi-Fi that unlocks the Battle Tower?

That is all the proof that I need to believe that it was never intended to be the Battle Tower.

Well...

The UNITED Tower, in the city based on New York...Quite possibly, the tower is there for you to register Trainers via Wi-Fi and then battle them on an assigned floor in a similar fashion to how you'd fight your friends in the Secret Base in R/S/E. If so, than I believe 130 floors is a bit much, but maybe it has some other purpose.

Maybe the 130 floors are just for show?

Or maybe each floor will store a trainer.

Or be a new area-thing like I said earlier

Anyways this sounds cool, though those without wi-fi wouldn't be able to get it.

Hmmm championships. Maybe, its a place that will hold tournaments on certain days. All over the world people can link up and battle. Something similar to the Global link site, or something.

I honestly have no idea, all speculation. Or it could just be a really sophisticated Pal Pad. lol. XD

It could also be the top 130 players on the leaderboards.

Too bad people without wi-fi won't get it.

No one is 100 % sure yet...it can be for championships, some say for the top people in the leader boards, some say it's a tricked up pal pad, all are good theories though :)

Maybe, every trainer you fight in Wi-Fi will automatically add to every floor of the Tower.
And, at the top, there will be a trainer like Red or Blue.
Or, maybe, you can find N, maybe he decided to change his life and becoming a great Pokèmon Trainer, so he did it at the United Tower, and he has his old team at Lv. 100.
Maybe. :D

What sort of trigger does the sailor need? Event item or just an unseen bit of code? That may give us a clue.

I think there's a character based off a game designer at the top. Maybe you have to battle through lots of trainers to battle him.

Well in how many countries is Pokemon available?
If you think about it, if there is say 130 countries where Pokemon is available to play (both in game and over wi-fi), then couldn't it be that the tower has the strongest trainer from each country?
Maybe once all games are released all over the world, GF/Nintendo have wi-fi tournaments of some kind in those 130 countries, the top trainers holding a spot in the United Tower that downloads content such as changes.
I might not have explained this properly, but what do you think?, i see it as being plausible.

I can see that happening. It would definitely explain the large amount of floors.

Wow that would be big! I can see them doing it but it's quite a bit task for them to do 130 tournaments...

There are around 200 countries in the world.

Only about 30 get Pokemon games made exclusively for their country.

The rest have to get them from importing.

30 is quite a bit but it's doesn't surprise me. So I'm guessing that the tower probably really isn't for 130 countries that have pokemon.
There are 192 countries recognized by the UN as of 2008 so you were right around 200.
Thought if it was countries it would have made sense as some see it as a counterpart to the UN tower.

How many of those 192 UN recognized countries actually get Pokemon games for sale? I am probably am wrong but, why not?

Well according to Summonter (hope I spelled that right) only 30, everyone else get's it from import.

Some of those don't actually get them directly. Canada for example, it gets all its Pokemon games through importing American versions and the French version. There is no actual Canadian version of Pokemon. The only reason I counted them is..well, I don't know why I did.

Oh well.

Really they don't...well why do they say Na version if only the Us get it, unless Mexico get's it too...
Well I think the tower might also be used for tourneys with friends or stuff...but that is kind of unlikely...

There are well over a billion people in these 30 countries that get the game, so the tower being for the top trainer from each doesn't sound realistic. I mean, there'd have to be so many battles and tournaments just to decide who's #1 from each nation, and I'm sure the titles would constantly change.

Sounds neat, but would need to be highly organized and thought out.

Really they don't...well why do they say Na version if only the Us get it, unless Mexico get's it too...

I think they say NA because from the US it's transported to Canada and Mexico. I think Mexico has its own Nintendo though, so it may be say transported to the US, translated to Spanish, then sent to Mexico.
Anyways, I'm hoping Nintendo opens up offices in more parts of the world eventually.
