The Pokémon Company International announced the Pokémon Jukebox app for regions outside of Japan. The app is the same as the Pokémon Ongaku Zukan (ポケモン音楽図鑑) one released in Japan earlier in the year. The app is free but tracks cost $0.99 for single tracks and $1.99 for medleys. We recommend though if people wish to listen to this Pokémon music that they buy the CD's or the iTunes tracks which are significantly cheaper and are more useful to use on other devices.
