The '''Advisor Pods''' are Combine vehicles designed to safely transport the Combine Advisors. Advisor Pods are seen leaving the Citadel moments before its destruction.

==Overview==

The Advisor pods are large white synth ships the size of phone booths, capable of controlled flight and marked with a registration number printed on the side (for example, 314 URB-LOC 0017, possibly standing for "Advisor number 314, Urban Location City 17|Number 17"). The inside is lined with cushioned walls and contains a "blanket" for the Advisors to be wrapped in, most likely some form of life support and/or protection from shock.

They are first seen in ''Episode One'' where Gordon and Alyx watch as a pod is transported up through the Citadel with an Advisor tucked inside. In ''Episode One'', many Pods can be seen fleeing from the Citadel just before it explodes. In ''Episode Two'', an Advisor Pod can be seen being transported on an Advisor Platform along with a battalion of Combine soldiers and Striders. Later, another pod with the same 314 URB-LOC 0017 registration code is seen crashed near where the Barn Advisor is found.
