An interactive Pokmon app was one of the ways Google demonstrated Soli Motion Sense on the Pixel 4. Google has taken Pokmon Wave Hello out of the Play Store after almost three years.

The Pixel 4 live background, which can be found in the standard wallpaper picker under the Come Alive collection, was not created by the Pokmon Wave Hello app.

Instead, by engaging with one of five Pokmon, this application was one approach to demonstrate Soli motions in a game-like manner. From Pokmon Sword and Shield are Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble, while Eevee is the best and most popular Pikachu.

In contrast, the live wallpaper enables you to pet by bringing your hand closer to the screen while using Soli to wave at people and receive the same gesture in return. In addition, tapping the screen causes them to jump, and double-tapping cycles through. Direct downloads of this experience are still available from Wallpaper and Style. (As of right now, I was able to download the backdrop onto a Pixel 4 without first installing it.) Google still provides a Play More! option that directs users to Pokmon Wave Hello.

The app was recently taken down from the, according to noticed today . Under the Developed by Google account, which also contains AR Stickers, Pokmon Wave Hello was released. The Mandalorian ARCore experience from the previous year shows that there is some precedent for this removal. That app had a firm 11-month availability that was hinted at on the listing at debut, presumably due to content licensing.

If you need to factory reset your phone, the removal is regrettable, but you won’t be missing anything. The app no longer appears under Manage apps and devices or by visiting the on your phone, making sideloading the apparent alternative.

The other Soli sample software, however, is still downloadable.
