The Pokémon Company has announced it will be shutting down the Pokémon Diamond & Pearl sound library just months after it opened.

Fans can go to this website to stream and download the music and sound effects from 2006 releases (for free) and explore the "incredible sounds" for Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. There are 149 tracks of music and sound effects all up.

Below is the full announcement - revealing the shutdown will take place next week on 31st May 2022.

Closing announcement - 2022.5.17

Thank you for visiting the Pokémon DP Sound Library. We will be shutting down the service on MAY 31, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. UTC. You will not be able to stream or download the sound data after this date.

As for sound data downloaded already, you will be able to continue using it within the scope of the Terms of Use and Guidelines. You can access this website to view the Terms of Use and Guidelines after the closure of Pokémon DP Sound Libary. Please make sure to follow the latest Terms of Use and Guidelines when using the sound data.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you to everyone who has supported us since the service launch.

This sound library was originally launched at the start of February this year, around the same time Nintendo soundtracks were being pulled from YouTube.

So, if you haven't already downloaded the free tracks available on this website, you might want to hurry up!
