Entry Gift: Qualified participants in the Johto Classic Online Competition received a special Pokémon.
Revisit the gilded age of Pokémon Gold, Pokémon Silver, and Pokémon Crystal in the Johto Classic! Create your best team using only the first 251 Pokémon in the National Pokédex—all the Pokémon you could have originally acquired through the Kanto and Johto regions (with the exception of Mewtwo, Mew, Lugia, Ho-Oh, and Celebi, which will not be permitted). You’ll compete in Single Battles, and out of your team of up to six Pokémon, only three will enter each battle. Mega Stones will not be allowed. All qualified participants in the Johto Classic received a special Pokémon to be announced prior to the sign-up period.

The competition used the Single Battles format and players had to register up to 6 of their level 1–100 Pokémon to their Battle Box. Pokémon automatically became Level 50 during battles. A 60-minute time limit for each match was automatically enforced in-game, beginning at the start of each battle. If the outcome had not been determined when the time limit expired, the game automatically applied tiebreakers to determine a winner. At the beginning of each battle, players had 60 seconds to select their Pokémon to battle with. At the beginning of each turn, players had 60 seconds to select a move or change Pokémon in battle. If a player had not made his or her selections at the end of this period, the game automatically made selections for the player. Players could battle up to 10 games per day of the competition. Any unplayed games would carry over to the following day.

Pokémon Jukebox app Discontinued on Google Play

Tags: Music, Android, Pokémon Jukebox
Comments: 0
The Pokémon Company has announced that the Pokémon Jukebox app will be discontinued on Google Play as of June 30th, 2016. No official reason for the app being discontinued was revealed but the high cost per track seems to be the main cause. The app was free but tracks cost $0.99 for single tracks and $1.99 for medleys. The Pokémon music is significantly cheaper on CD's or via iTunes. The app only lasted approximately a year on Google Play.


Press Release

As of May 31, 2016, the Pokémon Jukebox app will no longer be available for download via Google Play, and new music will not be available for purchase. This includes re-downloading the app if you have deleted it or have changed devices.

Then, as of June 30, 2016, all other service for the app will end. You will still be able to launch the app and listen to any music you have already purchased and downloaded. However, you will not be able to download any music, including music you have erased.
