In the last footage of Pokemon Sunday it was possible to hear a bit of music of the upcoming game:
-in the battle against zoroark I guess it's played wild pokemon music;
-in the starters' battle the trainer music(or maybe rival?);
-last you can hear hyun city music.

What do you think of the music up now? It's goood or bad?

For me the battles musics are very goood, and hyun city music is goood too, but maybe a bit too much calm for a city that big.

I can't remember teh battle music, but I do remember Hiun City's music being somewhat...calm. Really I'm not too picky on the music. I love DPPt and HG/SS's music though. It seems like the music gets better as each new pokemon gen/game comes out!

It sounds a lot better compared to the sassy R/S/E music, and maybe even on par or a tad better than the D/P/P music. Overall, I'd say I'm pleased.

Like you, I didn't listen a lot to the music of my first games, to not dry the GBA battery, but now I've learned to appreciate them (thanks to lithium).
I also agree that music gets better in every game: HG/SS have wonderful themes, really well redone from the past version.

Talking about R/S/E I wonder how the music will be in the (I hope) remakes. The themes were good, but GBA wasn't so good, in my opinion, in music, especially now compared to the DS. I'm really looking forward to hear them!

The new city's theme is very promising (it reminds me of a mix between G/S/C and R/S/E), but where in that video did the battle music play?

Idk, I think it did but I was too busy starring at the animated pokemon to notice. The music may not even be listened too that much because all the animation in the battle, and when just roaming around the region will catch your full attention. Game Freak is creating a new version of ADHD :D

Wasn't what I expected but it sounds alright; sort of a mixture between RSE and DPP.

For the in-game music, I'd like to hear different trainer music. Its always the same music, and same with leaders. How about some more indepented music?

^ That would take the soul out of the game. The music is extremely important in Pokemon games (and in any video game) and that would just ruin everything. I may have misunderstood you though. I get the impression that you want to have Dragonforce or some **** playing whilst you battle.

The Gym music and battle victory music should stay the same as it always has been. I'm hoping for some epic tunes in this generation.

HeartGold and SoulSilver had some of the best video game music I have ever heard in my life. They'll be a hard act for Black and White to follow up.

it would b cool to hav differant music for differant areas... like when ur surfing, when ur in a cave, at night etc. that and the animation sprites could make level grinding less painful.

I love the idea of different music for each trainer type!

It may take up some space, but given modern file compression, it wouldn't bee too much of a problem.

Maybe a different music for each type of area, for the wild Pokemon?

Hell yes, it's an awesome theme. All we've heard is 20 seconds, yet in that short 1/3 of a minute, it screams "New York City!" with its jazzy big-city feel, and also has a port-like seaside sound to it as well! It also, somehow, retains the laid-back nature that makes all Pokémon area music awesome.

If the rest of the music is as good as Hiun City's, I'm going to love this game.

This is Hiun City's theme. Part of it, at least. Pure Epicness. After fiddling around for a few minutes, I managed to get the song into .mp3! Go ahead! Download it! Also, this tidbit that I posted is longer than when they first showed us gameplay footage of Hiun City. This is the most music we've heard of Pokemon Black and White to date!

Actually, about 15 seconds. Whatever, it's EPIK!!! I also have a good feeling this game will be awesome. I want to order a copy on eBay and get one for my AceKard.

I totally agree! After hearing this one on the official site, I thinked "it's perfect! It totally suit the atmosphere of a big city, and made it NewYork-ish.

I'm gonna wait to give my opinion on the music when I hear the full tracks.

We only get small portions of it in the clips.

And @Azzurra, RSE's Music was amazing! Probably the best part ABOUT the games themselves!

May 30th, 2010, 11:29 AM
From what I've heard I really like it :3 It's very reminiscent of RSE but in a good way; it gives off that new big exciting region to explore. For me, anyway. And in the starter video I love that battle theme!

It's still got that Pokemon vibe with some of my favorite elements. So far it sounds great~

On Filb.de: Translated with Google Translate:
"Most recently, this month unveiled seven new Pokémon each briefly shown in combat in action. In the scenes is also to recognize that in B / W, the background music in the struggle to change if the Communist Party's own Pokémon are low."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBFPd3qC7kw

Obviously Google Translate is flawed when going from German to English, but you get the idea. During the battle between Shimama and Mijumaru, and Tsutaaja and Meguroko the music was dramatic and went along with the beeping.

What do you guys think?

I definitely like the idea of the music changing. I do wish they would remove that annoying siren-like sound when your HP is low. Seems like it blends with the chaotic music though, so it might be less annoying. :r

Maybe one is a trainer battle and the other is a wild battle or maybe it is just two different parts of the song.

PiPVoda
June 20th, 2010, 08:59 AM
^^ Yeah that is what I was thinking, but having the music get more intense if your pokemon, a wild pokemon, or the opponent's pokemon was low in health would make the battles even better.

That's what I thought too, hope I'm wrong though. Having the battle theme change in more intense situations would be immense!

Esmas
June 20th, 2010, 10:44 AM
I like the idea and I don't. The previous generations allowed you to actually memorize the songs without having a new song interrupt it, but also the same song looping over and over again might get somewhat annoying.

Kanto_Johto
June 20th, 2010, 12:40 PM
Am I the only one who hears the Hoenn reference in Hiun City's music?

The first 3 generation's music was so good that it made DPPt's look crap in comparison. The music I've heard so far from this generation indicates a significant improvement. Apart from that Evil Team grunt music. Galactic's was waaaaayyy better.

LegendaryPichu
June 20th, 2010, 02:23 PM
Now that I think about it... that could be a bad thing. If you have that a maximum six times in a battle that would get irritating... really irritating. If only Game Freak could find a way to make the music blend and become chaotic, instead of looping.

Maybe one is a trainer battle and the other is a wild battle or maybe it is just two different parts of the song.

There is a scene that plays the low hp music slowly and has text. Filb.de says that they are pointing out that the music changes while you have a pokemon in red. As soon as Mijumaru is knocked out the music goes back to normal.

I definitely like the idea of the music changing. I do wish they would remove that annoying siren-like sound when your HP is low. Seems like it blends with the chaotic music though, so it might be less annoying. :r

They made the beeping sound part of the music that plays when your health is red. Its not really annoying anymore!

NO MORE BEEPING, clearly this a victory for the forces of justice.

The beeping is still there, its just been made into a dramatic song.
