The Pokemon DP Sound Library will no longer be available after May 2022. The Pokemon Company has announced that it will shut the website down on May 31, 2022. [Thanks, 4Gamer.]

The Pokemon Company initially launched the DP Sound Library in Japan on December 24, 2021. It then brought access to the West on February 2, 2022. The website lets people download Pokemon Diamond and Pearl‘s background music and sound effects. A total of 149 tracks are available in the library. The company also compiled the whole soundtrack into a single video on YouTube.

After the site’s shutdown, formal downloads of the background music and sound effects will no longer be available. However, The Pokemon Company will still allow people who have downloaded the files to use them in accordance with the guidelines. It allows the usage of audio files in physical events and parties, as well as on social media. While the company generally only allows non-profit publications, it makes an exception for those with educational purposes.

Pokemon Diamond and Pearl originally came out for Nintendo DS in Japan in 2006 and in the West in 2007. The Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl remakes launched for Nintendo Switch simultaneously worldwide on November 19, 2021. The Pokemon DP Sound Library is available until May 31, 2022.
