The Burned Tower is a location in Ecruteak City formerly as tall as the Bell Tower to the east. It burned down mysteriously 150 years prior to the events of the game and . Before the great fire that caused its destruction the tower was called Brass Tower (Japanese: かねのとう Kane Tower).
According to some legends, Lugia once perched here. However, when the tower burned down, Lugia fled to the Whirl Islands to live, while Ho-Oh, which lived in the Bell Tower, flew away in search of a pure-hearted Trainer. Three unnamed Pokémon perished in the fire; Ho-Oh returned briefly to revive them after the fire had been put out. These Pokémon, the legendary beasts Raikou, Entei, and Suicune, were destined to speed across the land since their revival.
The player encounters Raikou, Entei, and Suicune for the first time in the basement of the Burned Tower, who then flee. This is also where Rival will challenge the player once again, with the second form of the starter he stole.
It is said that, before it burned down, the tower was known as the Brass Tower, with gleaming golden panels of brass to compliment the Tin Tower's silvery panels of tin.
The tower was built 700 years before the time of the game alongside its twin, the Bell Tower. The two towers were meant to foster friendship between people and Pokémon. Many people, mostly ancestors of Ecruteak Gym Leader Morty, traveled to the tops of these towers to commune with the legendary Pokémon residing there.
Suddenly, 150 years before the events of the game, this tower burned down in a mysterious fire, ignited by a bolt of lightning and put out by a sudden downpour. This fire, which may have had some relation to the drought that a Slowpoke ended in Azalea Town, caused three nameless Pokémon to perish. Ho-Oh, fleeing from its perch, granted new life to the Pokémon, making them into the legendary beasts before flying in search of a pure-hearted Trainer. The three events of the fire, the lightning bolt, raging blaze, and sudden downpour, are said to have some relation to the three beasts.
