'''Buena's Password''' (Japanese: '''アオイのあいことば''' ''{{tt|Aoi|Buena}}'s Password'') is a quiz show held in the [[Goldenrod Radio Tower]] by [[Buena]] that was first introduced in {{game|Crystal}}. In Generation II, the channel is broadcast on its own station, station 10.5. In Generation IV, it is part of the repertoire of the Variety Channel.
In order to play the quiz show, the player must listen to the Pokégear radio from 6 PM to midnight (in Generation IV, at 2 AM, 5 AM, 8 AM, 11 AM, 2 PM, 5 PM, 8 PM, and 11 PM). A secret password will be announced over the air, along with an invitation for listeners to come to the Goldenrod Radio Tower in [[Goldenrod City]]. The player is to go to the second floor and talk to Buena, the show's host. She will give the player three options; if the correct one is picked, one point is added to the player's [[Blue Card]]. Only one point can be earned per day; changing the DS time to a different day will not allow another point to be earned.
In Generation II, points must be spent to buy each prize; whereas in Generation IV, prizes are awarded when the player obtains a certain number of points. Players cannot have more than 30p on the Blue Card. If the player has 30p, they can speak to Buena to register her phone number in the [[Pokégear]] (points will not be spent). In Generation II, the player cannot earn points while their Blue Card has 30p (requiring points to be spent); whereas in Generation IV, the player will be issued a new Blue Card once the 30p limit is hit.
