Pokémon Say Tap? (Japanese: ポケモンTAP) is a free mobile phone game for modern smartphones devices with iOS and Android, released promotionally in 2011. Its availability on the App Store and the Android Market was limited from July 15 to September 30 for the former, and August 11 to October 28 for the latter. It also has a Browser version subtitled For PC, which is indefinitely available on the Pokémon Daisuki Club.

The application is a rhythm-based game based on the Pokémon Trading Card Game. The goal is to tap Pokémon in rhythm to the music and sounds going on in the game. The song the application uses is the Japanese ending theme of the Pokémon anime at the time of the application's announcement, Can You Name All the Pokémon? BW.


The game's basic gameplay is to tap on the screen in rhythm with the song's lyrics. One Pokémon card is on the screen at a time, corresponding to the respective Pokémon of the song. As the time to tap the card approaches, the respective energy symbols of the card approach a circle; the more centered the symbol is on the circle, the more accurate the player is.

The game features two gameplay modes. One on which the cards and symbols appear, and one that the player taps based on just the sound. The player's accuracy is measured in points, and there is an online leaderboard for the smartphone versions.



The game is available for Android devices with version 2.1 or higher, and on Apple devices with iOS 4.3 or higher. The Android and iOS versions are identical. The app is 15.3 MB large. Examples of the supported devices, as shown in the game's announcement, are the following:

Supported devices:

A "For PC" version is available on the Pokémon Daisuki Club for those with accounts. This version works similarly with the smartphone version, but it has no leaderboards.



  • This is the first official Pokémon-themed mobile phone application designed for modern smartphones, and the second such application for any type of mobile phone after Pokémate.
    • Both applications were only available in Japan.
