Nintendo is closing down the Pokémon DP sound library, only a short time after it opened up.

The sound library contains music and sound effects from the 2006 DS games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, launched back in February.

In any case, a declaration on the library page states it will close down on 31st May. No information will be accessible to stream or download after this date.

Assuming you’ve already downloaded information, it can still be used per the – rather stringent – terms and conditions.

The library had music and sounds divided into different playlists, however none of it very well may be used for commercial use of course.

Here is the declaration in full:

“Thank you for visiting the Pokémon DP Sound Library.

“We will be shutting down the service on 31st May, 2022, at 9am UTC. You will not be able to stream or download the sound data after this date.

“As for the sound data downloaded already, you will be able to continue using it within the scope of the Terms of Use and Guidelines. You can access this website to view the Terms of Use and Guidelines after the closure of Pokémon DP Sound Library. Please make sure to follow the latest Terms of Use and Guidelines when using the sound data.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank you to everyone who has supported us since service launch.”

It’s unclear precisely why this is closing. Yet, consider this your last opportunity to get downloading if you wanted to.

Meanwhile, The Pokémon Company has had a record financial year because of the sales of its latest games.
