Bonus Round
==In the games==
In the EuropeanKorean releasesversions of {{gamegame2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, asdue ato the resultillegality of changesgambling in South Korea and the classificationclassifications standards atof the {{wp|PanGame EuropeanRating Game Information|PEGIBoard}}<ref>[ European Pokemon Platinum's missing Game Corner explained | GamesRadar]</ref>, the [[slot machine]]s were replaced with [[Slot machine#Korean Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum / European Platinum|game machines]], including in the English version. The dialogue and other text was also altered to remove references to the slot machines and their functionality. {{TM|64|Explosion}} is instead given away at random by the Game Corner attendant as part of a TM promotion.
These changes were later also made in European releases of Pokémon Platinum, as a result of changes in the classification standards at {{wp|Pan European Game Information|PEGI}}<ref>[ European Pokemon Platinum's missing Game Corner explained | GamesRadar]</ref>, including in the United Kingdom English version.
The music played here is similar to the one heard in real-life {{wp|pachinko}} parlors.
As the game is played, occasionally a [[Poké Ball]] will roll up on the Touch Screen. They make the reels "sticky" and guarantee a win, whereas a win is normally impossible if a Ball does not appear. The type of win depends on the Ball:
*{{Balli|Poké Ball}} : Three Poké Balls
*{{Ball|[[Premier}} Ball]]: Three of something Random
*{{Ball|[[Great}} Ball]]: Three Replays
*{{Ball|[[Ultra}} Ball]]: Three Pikachu
*{{Ball|[[Safari}} Ball]]: Three Moon Stones
Randomly, a {{p|Clefairy}} will pop out of the Poké Ball on the touch screen, and can be either a normal one, a {{shinyShiny}} one, or one that appears to be a {{m|Transformtransform}}ed {{p|Ditto}}. OnceWhich kind of Clefairy appears indicates how likely the Bonus Round is to repeat; a transformed Ditto indicates a lower chance to repeat, a Clefairy indicates a moderate chance, and a Shiny Clefairy indicates a high chance. If Pikachu appears after the round is complete, playersit will be more likely to repeat (it will be less likely to repeat if Clefairy appears again). Players must continue spinning the reels until they get a 100-coin bonus. The odds of getting the bonus seem to improve if the slots are activated to the beat of Clefairy's clapping.
At this point the bonus round will begin. It only costs one coin to spin the reels while in the bonus round; after the reels begin spinning, the Clefairy will indicate which reel to stop first; left is Y, up is B, and right is A. Each time this is done correctly, three replays will be made possible, at fifteen15 coins apiece. If the player does not follow Clefairy's instructions, but gets three of one image (including replays) coins will not be given. Each bonus round has 15 spins, meaning that a perfect one yields 210 coins.
After 15 spins, the Clefairy will either stay for another bonus round or it will return to its Poké Ball and the bonus will end. This seems to be random. If ten or more bonus rounds are played in a row, the woman behind the counter will give {{TM|64|Explosion}} as a prize after the first aftertime this has been achieved. In order to obtain the TM, the player must lose a bonus round sometime after their tenth consecutive round; pressing Start to end the "Slot Session" will not count as having played 10 games in a row and will, in turn, not yield [[TM64]]. The TM is only given out once.
Occasionally, the moon on the touch screen will glow red during a spin, and according to an [[non-player character|NPC]] in the game corner,. gettingGetting a replay when the moon is red "makes Clefairy tired.", Because of this,so following Clefairy's instructions during a red moon could causemakes the bonusBonus Round less roundlikely to endrepeat.
HoweverOn the other hand, the moon may also occasionally glow bright white,. and followingFollowing Clefairy's instructions will almost always guarantee that Clefairy will stay for another bonus round.

===In the Pokémon Adventures manga===
The Veilstone Game Corner first appeared in ''[[PS356|Magnificent Meditite & Really Riolu I]]''. {{adv|Platinum}} wandered into it by accident, mistaking it for a hotel. In no time, she was sucked into the gaming, having to be forcibly dragged away by {{adv|Pearl}} when he and {{adv|Diamond}} came looking for her. Diamond proceeded to exchange the coins Platinum had won for a {{DL|In-battle effect item|[[Zoom Lens}}]]. The next day, [[Maylene]]'s father tried to talk bypassing Platinum, who was passing by, into trying the slot machines, but she refused. This is also the location where Diamond first encountered [[Team Galactic]] in ''[[PS358|Stunning Staravia & Stinky Skuntank I]]'' while recovering the [[Pokédex]] Platinum had accidentally left behind.
===In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl! Adventure manga===
The Veilstone Game Corner appeared in ''[[DPAS2|Deoxys, The Phantom Pokémon! (Part 2)]]''. At the beginning of the chapter, [[Hareta]] and [[Mitsumi]] arewere seen playing the slots. Hareta iswas winning trays full of Coins while Mitsumi cannotcouldn't win at all--a possible reference to the actual differences in luck between the slot machines in the games. At the end of the chapter, Hareta returnsreturned to the Game Corner only to find out that Mitsumi still has nothadn't won once, and iswas determined not to leave until she can finally windid.
* The background music that plays when {{p|Clefairy}} appears is a sped-up remix of the [[Mt. Moon Square]] background theme. The bonus round music further speeds it up.
* [[Maylene]]'s father can be met here. He says that nothing is going his way, and asks if the player is a Trainer or has battled the Gym Leader. [[Looker]] can also be found here both before the player has obtained the {{badge|Cobble}} and after the [[Stark Mountain]] storyline.
* The womansign behindoutside the counterGame Corner says thatto the player must"Aim have hadfor an ''explosionExplosion'' of goodLuck", luckas beforea givingpun on the TM64, asprize; athe woman behind the counter makes the same pun before giving the TM.
** After giving the TM, the woman says to keep playing for "another explosion of good luck". Despite this, she only gives TM64 once per save file.
