The '''Pokémon News Press''' (Japanese: '''ポケモンしんぶんしゃ''' ''Pokémon Newspaper Company'') is a small building located in [[Solaceon Town]]. It is run by two people, who create and print the [[Sinnoh]] region's newspaper. The Pokémon News Press is tiny, containing only a TV and a desk, with a writing pad and a computer, but the newspaper has many fans. One of the men asks the player each day to show him a different Pokémon the player has already seen, awarding Poké Balls if the request is granted. In {{v2|Platinum}}, he will also award a [[{{DL|Exchangeable item|Heart Scale]]}} for showing a Pokémon.
==Featured articles==
There is a news reporter at the desk writing an article about a certain Pokémon. He wants a "Pro Pokémon Catcher" to help him write the article by giving him the certain Pokémon to see. The man asks the player each day to see a different Pokémon in order to write his article. The Pokémon he asks for are always Pokémon that the player has already seen or caught. The player has until the end of the day to catch and show him the chosen Pokémon he asks for. In return, he randomly awards the player with three of one type of these kinds of [[Poké Ball]]s:
*{{bag|Poké Ball}} {{DL|Poké Ball|Poké Ball}}
*{{bag|Great Ball}} {{DL|Poké Ball|Great Ball}}
*{{bag|Ultra Ball}} {{DL|Poké Ball|Ultra Ball}}
*{{bag|Luxury Ball}} {{DL|Poké Ball|Luxury Ball}}
*{{bag|Net Ball}} {{DL|Poké Ball|Net Ball}}
*{{bag|Dive Ball}} {{DL|Poké Ball|Dive Ball}}
*{{bag|Nest Ball}} {{DL|Poké Ball|Nest Ball}}
*{{bag|Repeat Ball}} {{DL|Poké Ball|Repeat Ball}}
*{{bag|Timer Ball}} {{DL|Poké Ball|Timer Ball}}
*{{bag|Heal Ball}} {{DL|Poké Ball|Heal Ball}}
*{{bag|Dusk Ball}} {{DL|Poké Ball|Dusk Ball}}
*{{bag|Quick Ball}} {{DL|Poké Ball|Quick Ball}}
All types of the Poké Balls available in the Sinnoh-based games are available, except for [[Master BallsBall]]s, {{DL|Poké Ball|Premier BallsBall}}s, {{DL|Poké Ball|Cherish BallsBall}}s, {{DL|Poké Ball|Safari BallsBall}}s, and {{DL|Poké Ball|Park BallsBall}}s.
This is the only way to obtain Dive Balls in Diamond and Pearl without using [[Pal Park]].
