EToP Pokémon Tower=Bruegel's Tower of Babel?
This one's a little out there, so I wanted to get some opinions before I added it to the wiki.
I was reading ET04 (Haunting My Dreams) when I came to the picture of Lavender Town (unfortunately I can't find a picture of the panel I have in mind at the moment). Anyway, Pokémon Tower is prominent, and the first the I thought of when I saw it was that it looked uncannily like the Tower of Babel as depicted in paintings by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, a Dutch Renaissance painter. It looks especially like the "Little" Tower of Babel; the outline of the ruined top of the Pokémon Tower even seems to follow that of the tower in the painting.
