Jubilife TV (Japanese: テレビコトブキ Kotobuki TV) is a television station headquartered in Jubilife City, Sinnoh. It broadcasts the television programs seen throughout the Sinnoh region. The building is a noticeable big, white and cube-shaped building located in the northern section of the city.

The building itself is not accessible until after the player has obtained the Coal Badge and defeated the Galactic Grunts to the north of the city; until this point a Pokétch campaign Clown will block the entrance.

A Trainer appears in the lobby and can be fought once a day in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. The Trainer that appears depends on the current day of the week. If the game is saved in the lobby, the previous Trainer will still be there and can be battled on the other days until the player leaves.

There are no Trainers in Jubilife TV in Pokémon Platinum; these Trainers instead appear in various Pokémon Centers after obtaining the Vs. Seeker and grow stronger as player progresses through the game.

Pokémon Lottery Corner

Main article: Pokémon Lottery Corner

The Pokémon Lottery Corner is located on the ground floor of the Jubilife TV building, where it is conducted by a receptionist named Felicity. The winning ID number changes daily, and the game looks for matches by examining the IDs of all Pokémon in the player's party and in all PC boxes (but not Pokémon in the Day Care).

In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, the player may only check for matches once a day, and this occurs at the same time that they are told what the winning ID is. This is changed in Pokémon Platinum so that the player may check for matches multiple times in one day; however, after winning a prize, they may not participate again for the rest of the day.

Once all of the Backdrops have been won, the player will no longer be able to win for matching only one digit in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. The Backdrops that the player can win are Ranch, City at Night, Snowy Town, Fiery, Outer Space, Cumulus Cloud, Desert, Flower Patch, Future Room, Open Sea, Total Darkness, Tatami Room, and Gingerbread Room.

Fitting Room and gallery

On the second floor, Trainers can dress up their Pokémon using their Accessories. The saved photo of a dressed-up Pokémon is displayed in the gallery just outside the Fitting Room, along with up to ten photos from Trainers that the player has mixed records with. After dressing up a Pokémon and taking a photo, an Interviewer will appear outside of the entrance to the gallery to ask the player about the photo.

Mask man

In the main area, a man will give the player the mask of the Pokémon that they started with.

Ranking Rooms

On the third floor there are two rooms off-shooting from the main room: the Group Ranking Room and the Global Ranking Room, which detail rankings from players in the player's group and all players, respectively. There are three machines in each room, each detailing different concepts to be ranked in. These two rooms are replaced by a single machine in Indigo Plateau in HeartGold and SoulSilver.

TV producer

A man in the yellow-carpeted area is a TV producer who will ask the player for their opinion about TV using the easy chat system. Telling this man a specific phrase will unlock Mystery Gift.

Additionally, certain phrases that vary based on game version, language, and Trainer ID number can be told to the TV producer to unlock special wallpapers. The passwords can be retrieved from the Daisuki Club website or Filb.de's secret phrase generator.

Trap-busting master

Activated when the Trainer disarms traps in the Underground. Lists the number of Traps disarmed and the last Trap disarmed before the player surfaced. Tanya is very enthusiastic about this.

Also featured are Pokémon such as a four-winged Zubat attacking workers, and a 100-foot-tall Bellsprout.

We Love the GTS!

A reporter asks a random bystander in the GTS station what they think of the Pokémon that they've received. The interview subject gives generally positive reviews, but wonders why his Pokémon has such a strange set of moves; Cut, Explosion, Double-Edge, and Reversal. The Pokémon is not named, but the only Pokémon that can learn all four of these moves is Smeargle. It is possible that this is a reference to cheating.

Sinnoh Hot Hit Tunes

Counts down the top three songs of the week, which are always the same but with key words replaced. The third song title is based on the Pokémon that is first in the player's Party. The second song is merely at random, but sometimes can be based on an Accessory or something found in the player's Bag. The number one song is based on the Pokémon the player has recently captured or traded.

Pokémon Adventures

Diamond & Pearl chapter

Diamond and Pearl attended in the Next Generation Comedy Grand Prix, held here in Stagestruck Starly.


  • In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, a glitch can occur regarding the Hiker who allows Pokémon to be dressed up. When talking to the Hiker, if a button on the D-pad is pressed so that the player is facing away from the Hiker just before the screen to select which Pokémon will be dressed up opens, the player will not walk on the set path; this can lead to walking through walls or the Hiker, or canceling the action altogether.
