You can now use Pokemon music and sounds from Pokemon Diamond and Pearl in your videos and creative content thanks to the launch of the Pokemon DP Sound Library -- as long as it's non-commercial.
Companies such as Capcom, Atlus, and Square Enix have made music from their games available on streaming platforms such as Spotify over the last few years -- a move that surely contributed to the explosion of video game music on the platform in 2020.
Nintendo, however, has always been a little behind the times. While you can find a fair amount of Pokemon music on Spotify, other franchises (such as its flagship game series Super Mario) don't have much in the way of music available on the platform. Nintendo is notoriously protective of its IP, too, most recently shutting down a YouTube channel that had thousands of high-quality Nintendo songs on it. Now, Nintendo is taking things a bit further with the launch of the Pokemon DP Sound Library.
