Not even a full year’s gone by since the Pokémon Company launched the Diamond and Pearl sound library before the company’s revealed its intentions to shutter it in a matter of days.
Around February, Nintendo launched the service where fans could listen and download sound effects and tracks from the original 2006 release and explore the sounds of the remaster, Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
If you’ve already downloaded any tracks, you’ll still have access to them. It’s hard to say why they decided to shutter the Diamond and Pearl sound library after making an effort to pull uploads of the old 2006 tracks on YouTube. But, if there’s any tracks you want, you’ll want to get them downloaded by May 31.

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