The '''Pokémon Music Channel''' (Japanese: '''ポケモンミュージック チャンネル''' ''Pokémon Music Channel''), sometimes shortened to '''Pokémusic''' (Japanese: '''ポケミュージック''' ''Pokémusic''), is two radio stations in {{game5|Gold|Silver|Crystal|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}. In [[Johto]], the program is known as '''Pokémon Music''' (Japanese: '''ポケモンミュージック''' ''Pokémon Music''), hosted by DJ {{DL|DJ|Ben}}, and is on channel 7.5 on the [[Pokégear]]'s radio. In [[Kanto]], the program is known as '''Pokémusic''' '''Let's All Sing!''' (Japanese: '''みんなで うたおう!''' ''Let's Sing, Everybody!''), and is hosted by DJ {{DL|DJ|Fern}} on channel 18.5. In Pokémon Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, the [[Pokégear#Radio|EXPN Card]] is required to listen to the Kanto station.
'''Pokédex Show''' (Japanese: '''よくわかる ポケモンずかん''' ''Understanding<!--Maybe there's some better word?--> the {{tt|Pokémon Gallery|Pokédex}}'') is a radio show available only in [[Johto]] in [[Generation II]]. It operates on radio frequency 4.5 from 4 AM to 10 AM each day. All the other times, [[Professor Oak's Pokémon Talk]] is broadcasted on that frequency. This show is not hosted by any known DJ.
 
In [[Generation IV]], the radio shows broadcasted in [[Kanto]] are the same as in [[Johto]], meaning that "Let's All Sing" by DJ Fern is no longer available.
The Pokédex Show randomly generates Pokédex descriptions out of the Pokémon that the player has caught and stored in the Pokédex.
 
Pokémon Music Channel broadcasts different pieces of music on different days of the week, each with different effects.
The show was removed in [[Generation IV]] (along with [[Lucky Channel]] and all of [[Kanto]]'s shows). Instead, [[Professor Oak's Pokémon Talk]] now airs for the entire day.
 
==Pokémon March==
The Pokémon March increases wild Pokémon encounter rate when played, much like the [[White Flute]] in later generations.
*In [[Generation II]]: The song plays on Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
*In [[Generation IV]]: The song plays on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays pre-[[National Pokédex]], and only on Mondays and Fridays post-National Pokédex after receiving the [[GB Sounds]].
 
==Pokémon Lullaby==
The Pokémon Lullaby decreases wild Pokémon encounter rate when played, much like the [[Black Flute]] in later generations.
*In Generation II: The song plays on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
*In Generation IV: The song plays on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays pre-National Pokédex, and only on Tuesdays and Saturdays post-National Pokédex.
 
==Pokémon Past Archive==
The Pokémon Past Archive is only accessible in [[Generation IV]], after the player has acquired the National Pokédex. It has no function in the field, but like the [[GB Sounds]], it plays chiptunes from {{game2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}}. It primarily plays music that the player cannot normally listen to with the GB Sounds, such as the game's opening and ending themes. It plays on Sundays after receiving the GB Sounds from the Game Freak employee.
 
==Hoenn Sound==
The Hoenn Sound channel is also accessible only in Generation IV, post-National Pokédex. It plays a remixed version of the {{rt|101|Hoenn}} theme, which attracts certain wild [[Hoenn]] Pokémon. The song plays on Wednesdays. In order to successfully attract Pokémon, the music must be currently playing instead of the location music.

==Sinnoh Sound==
The Sinnoh Sound channel, much like the Hoenn Sound channel, can attract wild Pokémon from [[Sinnoh]] with a remix of the music played on {{rt|201|Sinnoh}}. It is only available in Generation IV, post-National Pokédex. The song plays on Thursdays. In order to successfully attract Pokémon, the music must be currently playing instead of the location music. Curiously, it attracts {{p|Meditite}} even though it is a [[Hoenn]] Pokémon.

==Trivia==
*The Hoenn Sound channel plays on Wednesday, considered the third day of the week in some parts of the world, as well in {{wp|ISO 8601|international standardization}}. This corresponds with Hoenn's introduction in [[Generation III]]. Likewise, the Sinnoh Sound channel plays on Thursday, sometimes considered the fourth day, matching [[Generation IV]].
*{{p|Meditite}} is the only Pokémon found with the regional music programs that doesn't match the generation, being a {{cat|Generation III Pokémon}} found with Sinnoh Sound. This is probably due to its greater prominence in the [[Generation IV]] games.
*Sunday is the only day of the week that the music playing before the National Pokédex has been obtained in [[Generation IV]] is the same as the music playing in [[Generation II]]. All other days swapped the music.
