'''Lucky Channel''' (Japanese: '''ラッキーチャンネル''' ''Lucky Channel'') is a radio program, and its corresponding station, which broadcast from the [[Goldenrod Radio Tower]] in [[Goldenrod City]] in {{game2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}}. The program is also referred to by its host {{DL|DJ|Reed}} as the '''Lucky Number Show''' ('''ラッキーナンバーキャンペーン''' ''Lucky Number Campaign'').
'''Professor Oak's Pokémon Talk''' (Japanese: '''オーキドはかせの ポケモンこうざ''' ''{{tt|Dr. Okido's|Prof. Oak's}} Pokémon Lecture'') is a radio show aired on the '''Pokémon Channel''' (Japanese: '''ポケモン チャンネル''' ''Pokémon Channel''). It is hosted by [[Professor Oak]] and [[DJ Mary]]. The show operates on the radio frequency 4.5, only in afternoons in [[Generation II]] but all day in [[Generation IV]]; during the morning in Generation II, the [[Pokédex Show]] is broadcast.
 
The station broadcasts in [[Johto]] on channel 8.5 of the [[Pokégear]]. The channel broadcasts a random [[Original Trainer|OT]] [[Trainer ID number|ID number]] which changes every {{DL|Days of the week|Friday}}. During the week, the player can visit the Radio Tower and talk to a man on the first floor. If any of the player's Pokémon in the [[party]] or in the [[Pokémon Storage System]] have an OT ID that in whole or in part matches the ID number for the week, they will receive a prize. The player may only receive a prize once per week, even if they have multiple Pokémon with winning IDs.
The show talks about Pokémon and where they are found. In Generation IV starting post-[[National Pokédex]], it also informs the viewers of [[Pokémon outbreak|Pokémon swarms]]. This also includes the ones from Generation II that appear in a swarm when a Trainer registered into the player's Pokégear would contact them.
 
While the program is no longer broadcast in [[Generation IV]]'s [[Johto]], the [[Pokémon Lottery Corner|drawing itself]] remains on the Radio Tower's ground floor, changing daily, rather than weekly, and with the same prizes as the drawings in [[Hoenn]] and [[Sinnoh]].
At first, Professor Oak was going to turn down the offer of having his own radio show, but Mary's energy and enthusiasm convinced him to host it.
 
The lucky numbers for the week are randomly generated the first time the player speaks with the man on the first floor of the Radio Tower<!-- (unconfirmed, but possibly also generated when the player switches to the Lucky Number radio channel)-->.
The following Pokémon may be found by listening to Professor Oak's Pokémon Talk.

==Trivia==
* {{DL|DJ|Reed}} occasionally says, "''...Repeating myself gets to be a drag...''"
*In {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}, one of [[Professors' aides|Professor Oak's aides]] [[List of cross-generational references|mentions]] Professor Oak's show he's planning, but mentions that it's called Professor Oak's Pokémon Seminar.
* In {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, the poster announcing the Lucky Channel on the ground floor of the [[Goldenrod Radio Tower]] is still present, despite the program itself no longer being available. It reads "''Lucky Channel! Win with Pokémon ID numbers! Trade your Pokémon to collect different ID numbers!''"
*According to one of Professor Oak's aides in {{game|Crystal}}, [[Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions|HeartGold, and SoulSilver]], the show is prerecorded. This explains why Oak is always in his lab, even if the player listens to the program while visiting him, and why he isn't in the {{FB|Goldenrod|Radio Tower}} while the program is playing.
** In the Japanese versions, the poster refers to the Lucky Channel as '''だいこうひょうポケモンくじ''' ''The Great Pokémon Lottery''. In the English versions, the name "Lucky Channel" is kept.
