Many fans of the general storyline of the Pokémon game franchise seem to gloss over a few important plot holes in  Pokémon Gold Version and Pokémon Silver Version that weren't quite as touched on as we are sure Game Freak and The Pokémon Company would like: The story of the Burned Tower of Ecruteak City has more implications than one might initially realize. Before the tower burned down, it was known as the Brass Tower and was home to the mascot creature of this game you see on auction right now, Lugia. When it was burned down, besides forcing Lugia to vacate to the Whirl Islands between Olivine City and Cianwood City, it also caused the "death" of three other creatures, though, through the intervention of the patron of the neighboring Tin Tower, the Rainbow Pokémon, Ho-Oh, these three near-casualties were spared and soon thereafter transformed into Raikou, Entei, and Suicune. It's an excellent iceberg to explore! Furthermore, according to the item's auction listing on Heritage Auctions' website:

Pokémon Silver Version – 7.0 A+ Sealed [Made in Japan], GBC Nintendo 2000 USA. Has some light indentions on the back of the box.
