But something as symbolic as the Eiffel Tower being a non explorable building would be a bit of a let down..

    You can clearly see the entrance. It's being used.

      At the very least they could put a legendary in it like they did with Victini in the Poke version of The Statue of Liberty. However I see it as being a battle facility, or maybe a look out tower...

            The eiffel tower building we see in the trailer could end up being a glorified gate.

            It could be how we enter Miare city for the first time. After all if you look at the art of corocoro that shows the player riding the goat. You can see the eiffel tower road leads to busy market area.

              I doubt so, since it's based on the Eiffel tower it'd be in the dead centre of the city, so it can't be a gate, again, it's more likely a lookout tower used to show off the 3D

              I guess making it a lookout tower would be a pretty awesome way to show off the 3D features

              Well they had those Binoculars in past generations at the Great Marsh and the Safari Zone, so maybe something like that at the peak of the Tower to look out over the Region would be a nice way to utilize the 3D graphics.

                Maybe it will be be like the Nimbasa city's ferris wheel, you go on top of the tower with someone to advance on the story, maybe you can even look at the region while on a glass elevator. It would be awesome if a significant battle takes place on top of the tower, maybe against the leader of the evil team.

                    I imagine your rival battling you there, or maybe the evil team if they take over the tower.

                      That looks nothing like an entrance. The semi circle is all one color signifying that it is one solid piece. If anything its a part of the design making the tower a very large decorational statue. You can even see the shadow doing across the top portion showing its just a wall. Its a decoration.

                      Comparing it to the buildings in the side, its too large to be scaled down and the tower portion as well as the base is too narrow to allow people to go inside. So yes. Statue to decorate the center if that area.

                      But where has the player come from? there's no other entrance to that street he's skating down and if anything the Eiffel Tower building looks like a connection from one route to another.

                        There look to be roads on the side of the houses. The statue isn't against them. Its too large to be scaled down, no entrance visible in that picture, and its too small to allow someone inside. Basic reasoning skills say decoration. There have been many buildings in Pokemon games that you cannot access. Why would this being there for decoration be a great surprise? There were green houses in B/W/B2/W2 that you could not enter. Outside of special event you could not enter the ferris wheel either.

                        Its pretty common for buildings to exist in the Pokemon games that you could not get access to.


                        It may be a memorial statue for some event for either the region or city. It may have significance to the story, like maybe its a representation of a tower that exists in their legend. The way the design for the tower part looks like its being surrounded by vines.

                        Could be some story piece for Xerneaus and Yveltal.

                          It's based on the Eiffel tower, it'd be incredibly dumb not to let people go inside or up it as, well, you can do that in real life, it's not a statue, it's a building, plus it's a lot larger in promo artwork in the recent scans, there will be a way to enter it, remember, the first trailer footage wasn't final, they probs hadn't finished modelling all of it yet.

                            We know that for game logic the size of a building seen from the outside is usually different from the actual size of it. In the first 10 seconds of the announcement trailer, after pikachu uses thunder we can see that the tower is several times bigger than the model in the screenshot, based on the size of it compared to that of the other buildings.
                            Now considering that the model seen in the screenshot may have been not the definitive one, I think that we can't really exclude the possibility of the tower beeing an accessible building.

                            Talking about what could be inside, considering how pikachu's thunder reach all the world from the top of the tower, and the focus on the simultaneus worldwide release I think that could be an antenna, so at the base there could be the GTS.

                            It just seems a waste to let something as iconic as the Eiffel Tower to be left unexplored, there's so much they can do with it and although you say there are buildings that are there for decoration purposes it just seems too much of a giveaway.

                              Comparing it to the buildings in the side, its too large to be scaled down and the tower portion as well as the base is too narrow to allow people to go inside. So yes. Statue to decorate the center if that area.
                              I'm sorry, I'm just not buying that story. They wouldn't put a landmark meant to represent the Eiffel Tower - the premiere landmark of Paris, and perhaps France as a whole - and not allow players to explore it. Obviously the player has a LOT of walking to do to get there, but that still looks like a door and it would obviously get closer to you as you walk towards it, meaning you would easily fit through the doorway.

                              Maybe there's a possible entrance, but we're just seeing it from the wrong side? If anything though, it is odd because it has the shadows amongst other things that Xander has pointed out. For the sake of optimism, I'm going to say that there's a good possibility that there's some sort of elevator somewhere that'll take you to different floors/rooms inside there possibly, but then again....eh.

                                I don't really know if we can take that screenshot seriously, if you look at the same scene during the trailer you can see that the "door" is totally white, and it seem to be lighten up from the inside.

                                  I had a squint, and it could possibly be a light inside of an entrance

                                  Well I'm pretty sure that screen will be different to what the final game entails, the games are still in development so I'm pretty sure that graphics will have been touched up by October.

                                    Or it could still be a gate, but one that connects different parts of the city.
