Prism Tower (プリズムタワー Purizumu Tawā?) is a stage appearing in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and returns in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The stage is set in Lumiose City of the Kalos region from the games Pokémon X and Y.
The stage begins on the streets in front of the tower's base in broad daylight. A few seconds into the battle, moving platforms will appear and must be jumped onto to begin the ascent to the top. Near the top, the sun begins to set, and it turns nighttime once at the top, where the players can continue to fight. Eventually, the platform flies away from the tower, then down back to the front of the tower's base as daylight returns. The stage always plays out in a set order for the same amount of time.
Like Saffron City, Pokémon Stadium 2, and Spear Pillar, there are Pokémon that appear in the background. Helioptile can be seen on the ground, while Magnemite, Zapdos, Emolga, and Yveltal can be seen while the platform flies around the tower.
In Pokémon X and Y, Lumiose City is at the centre of the Kalos region and is currently the largest city in the Pokémon world. It is home to Professor Sycamore, who gives the player one of the three Kanto starters at his lab, Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle (earlier, he sends one of the three Kalos Pokémon to the player: Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie). It is also the location of several different cafes and restaurants, one of which is owned by Lysandre, the leader of Team Flare, and hides Lysandre Labs behind its walls. The Prism Tower, in Centrico Plaza, is actually the Lumiose Gym, where the player battles Clemont, an Electric-type specialist, for the fifth badge after solving a series of questions involving Pokémon.
The Prism Tower trophy is exclusive to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.
