The Pokémon Lottery Corner is a feature in the Generation II, III, IV, and VI core series games that gives the player a periodic opportunity to receive a reward for owning a Pokémon with a certain OT ID number.

Each day (or each week in Generation II), a random ID number is generated; if the player has a Pokémon with the same or a similar ID, they will receive a prize. In order for a Pokémon's ID to be eligible for an award, one or more consecutive corresponding digits of the Pokémon's ID and the random ID must be the same, starting from the rightmost digit. For example, if the current lottery number is 12345, a Pokémon with the ID 12340 will not win, and one with the ID 12305 will win for matching only the last digit (except in Generations II and III, which do not give rewards for matching only one digit). Even if the player resets the game, the number for that day will still be the same.

A similar feature is present in Black 2 and White 2, with the Raffle Shops. Those, however, aren't based on any factor.

Generation II

Main article: Lucky Channel

In Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, the Lucky Number Show is part of the Lucky Channel, a radio program broadcast on channel 8.5 in Johto. Each Friday, a random ID number is generated and then broadcast on the Lucky Channel throughout the following week. The player can bring a Pokémon with an ID number matching that week's lucky number to a receptionist on the ground floor of the Goldenrod Radio Tower to receive a prize. When the receptionist is spoken to, the IDs of all Pokémon in the player's party and in the currently selected Box of the Pokémon Storage System are checked for matches, and a prize is awarded if one is found. The player can speak to the receptionist to check for matches multiple times in one week, but once a prize has been received, the player will not be able to participate again until after the lucky number changes at the start of the next Friday.

Quotes

  • If the player has not drawn a lottery ticket that day
"Hi, are you here for the Lucky Number Show? Want me to check the ID numbers of your Pokémon? If you get lucky, you win a prize. This week's ID number is <number>. Let see if you have a match.
"The Loto Ticket number is <number>. I need to run a check on this number to see if it matches any of your Pokémon's ID numbers. Please wait."
  • If the player loses
"Nope, none of your ID numbers match."
  • If the player wins
"Congratulations! We have a match with the ID number of <winning Pokémon> in your party/PC Box.
  • If last two digits match
"Ooh, you've matched the last two numbers. You've won third prize, a PP Up.
  • If last three digits match
"Hey! You've matched the last three numbers! You've won second prize, an Exp.Share!"
  • If all digits match
"Wow! You have a perfect match of all five numbers! We have a grand prize winner! You have won a Master Ball!
  • When talking to the receptionist again after drawing a ticket
"Please come back next week for the next Lucky Number."

Generation III

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, the lottery is part of the Pokémon Lottery Corner on the ground floor of the Lilycove Department Store, where it is conducted by the right receptionist. The winning ID number changes daily, and the game looks for matches by examining the IDs of all Pokémon in the player's party and in all PC Boxes (but not Pokémon in the Day Care). The player may only check for matches once a day, and this occurs at the same time that they are told what the winning ID is.

Quotes

  • If the player has not drawn a lottery ticket that day
"This is the Pokémon Lottery Corner. All shoppers visiting our Department Store get to draw a Pokémon Loto Ticket. If the Loto Ticket's number matches the ID number of any of your Pokémon, you will receive a fabulous gift. Would you like to draw a Pokémon Loto Ticket?"
No: "Please do visit us again."
Yes: "Please pick a Loto Ticket. ... ... ..."
"The Loto Ticket number is <number>. I need to run a check on this number to see if it matches any of your Pokémon's ID numbers. Please wait."
  • If the player loses
"I'm sorry. None of the numbers matched. Please do visit again."
  • If the player wins
"Congratulations! The ID number of your PC-boxed/team's <winning Pokémon's nickname> matches your Loto Ticket's number!
  • If two digits match
"Two digits matched, so you win the third prize! You've won the PP Up!"
"Please do visit again."
  • If three digits match
"Three digits matched, so you win the second prize! You've won the Exp. Share!"
"Please do visit again."
  • If four digits match
"Four digits matched, so you win the first prize! You've won the Max Revive!"
"Please do visit again."
  • If all digits match
"Oh, my goodness, all five digits matched! You've won the jackpot prize! You've won the Master Ball!"
"Please do visit again."
  • When talking to the receptionist again after drawing a ticket
"Please come back tomorrow."

Generation IV

In Generation IV, the winning ID number is determined using the same mechanic as Pokémon outbreaks and Great Marsh Pokémon. Therefore, players in the same group will have the same winning number on any given day, and resetting the game will not change the day's winning number, unlike in Generation III.

In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, the lottery is part of the Pokémon Lottery Corner on the ground floor of the Jubilife TV building, where it is conducted by a receptionist named Felicity. The winning ID number changes daily, and the game looks for matches by examining the IDs of all Pokémon in the player's party and in all PC Boxes (but not Pokémon in the Day Care). In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, the player may only check for matches once a day, and this occurs at the same time that they are told what the winning ID is. This is changed in Pokémon Platinum so that the player may check for matches multiple times in one day; however, after winning a prize, they may not participate again for the rest of the day.

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Felicity and the Pokémon Lottery Corner appear on the ground floor of the Goldenrod Radio Tower; the lottery in these games works the same way that it does in Platinum.

Generation VI

In Pokémon X and Y, the lottery (named the Loto-ID) is at the Loto-ID Center on Estival Avenue in Lumiose City, where it is conducted by the front receptionist. The winning ID number changes daily, and the game looks for matches by examining the IDs of all Pokémon in the player's party and in all PC Boxes (but not Pokémon in the Day Care). Although the number remains the same throughout the day, the player may check for matches multiple times in one day until they win a prize, after which they may not participate again for the rest of the day.
