Buena's Password (Japanese: アオイのあいことば Aoi's Password) is a quiz show held in the Radio Tower that was first introduced in Pokémon Crystal.

The channel is broadcast in its own station in Generation II, while in Generation IV it is part of the repertoire of the Variety Channel.

How to play

In order to play the quiz show, the player must listen to the Pokégear radio from 6 PM to midnight (in Generation IV, at 2 AM, 5 AM, 8 AM, 11 AM, 2 PM, 5 PM, 8 PM, and 11 PM). A secret password will be announced over the air, along with an invitation for listeners to come to the Goldenrod Radio Tower in Goldenrod City. The player is to go to the second floor and talk to Buena, the show's host. She will give the player three options; if the correct one is picked, one point is added to the player's Blue Card. Only one point can be earned per day. In Generation II these points can be spent on prizes in the Radio Tower. In Generation IV prizes are given out the moment the player has the right amount of points. Changing the DS time to a different day will not allow another point to be earned.

Also, players cannot have more than 30p on the Blue Card, so in Generation II some points must be spent before earning more. In Generation IV the player will be issued a new Blue Card once the 30p limit is hit.
