Pokémon Say Tap?
App Name: Pokémon Say Tap? (ポケモン言えTAP?)
Release Date: July 15th 2011
Region: Japan
Developer: Creatures Inc.
Platforms: iPhone, iPad, Android, PC
Price: Free

The first ever Pokémon app was released for a limited time from July 15th 2011 to September 30th on iOS, and August 11th 2011 to October 28th 2011 on Android platforms. This app was a simple rhythm game that tied in with the ending to the Pokémon anime at the time, Can You Say the Pokémon? BW, which was essentially a song naming all the new Pokémon introduced in Pokémon Black & White.

This app had you tap the screen which displayed a TCG card featuring the Pokémon at the time of the name in the music. At the top an icon indicating the type of Pokémon appears and, if you tap at the correct time, you will get a perfect score. It also has a mode which is done based solely upon the sound of the music, rather than using the Pokémon's images

After the song ends and you have tapped all the Pokémon, you will be ranked based upon your timing. The game holds a high score table, which you can customise with an icon, in order to see how well you did.

It also provided a platform for displaying QR codes which Pokédex 3D Pro could use for its Augmented Reality features.

The initial app just contains the Pokémon introduced in Pokémon Black & White, from Snivy to Genesect, but allowed for the purchase of extra packs that included the rest of the Pokémon, separated by the generation. Once the pack was purchased, the Pokémon would appear in the Pokédex.
