Jubilife TV is a television station headquartered in Jubilife City, Sinnoh. Its broadcasts reach residents across the region, spreading information far and wide.

The headquarters is also home to a daily lottery, where, depending on how much the drawn number matches the Trainer ID number of Pokémon owned by the drawing Trainer, he or she may win a new backdrop for Super Contests, a PP Up, an Exp. Share, a Max Revive, or even, if the numbers match exactly, a Master Ball.


A Trainer appears in the lobby and can be fought once a day. The trainer that appears depends on the current day.
