What do you guys think?

I love it! The songs really great! I like the lines "It''s about hope! Its about dream's!"
I find the first clip of Ash and Paul a little creepy since they look a bit way too detailed

Haha, it must be scary to see their faces detailed on an actual TV XD Although fangirls may like it :P

I don't like it too much, it's not upbeat enough for me. But it's good in that all the animation comes from the Japanese opening rather than random clips from the show, I think this is the only Pokemon dub opening to do that.

I agree with Jorah on this one. The song itself seems to lack some beat compared to previous openings. Not my favorite, but I liked how they did take the Japanese opening; that was a good move. Other than that, I feel as though I've watched the Japanese opening so long that compared to this one, this seems so short now. ): Aw well, it's not terrible though. It makes up for the bit lacking season title I guess.

I liked the last 2 much more. The "Sinnoh League Victors" in the song just seems to misplaced. At least Galactic Battle was someone in the last song, even if in the official version, it isn't.

And they pretty much spoiled the american viewers that don't keep up with japan that certain pokemon changes are coming.

Must they really insist on stuffing the season's name into each opening?

This opening feels like an ending theme. It's too boring and uninspired to be any better, really. It's anything but exciting, or really, lacks any "punch" whatsoever. You could keep the lyrics as-is, but those instruments are terrible choices. Do Cartoon Network's other shows have such plain opening credits?

"It's about friends that work to-get-her"
Now that's just lame singing.

Speaking about opening credits, why don't we keep the credits at the end of the show?
But it's good in that all the animation comes from the Japanese opening rather than random clips from the show, I think this is the only Pokemon dub opening to do that.
That's an achievement? They only had 40 seconds to. :(

Try timing how much footage from OK! appears in Pokémon Johto, which happens to use a lot of footage from said intro.

Or Advance Challenge, which used the most. Well, I guess this intro beats Advance Challenge's record.

Bleh, it'll take too long to like this one. I like all Pokemon songs, but since D&P has started, the opening themes are getting worse (still I like now the first three).

I love this opening. I don't see what's so wrong about it. To expand a little on what I said in the other thread, I like the voice of the guy who's singing the song and I like the music too. I'm happy that they didn't use episode clips too since I hate when openings to any show have episode clips it into them.

Hate it. "Boring" pretty much defines it. The lines aren't as bad as they've been recently, but it is way too slow paced. The rhythm just seems a bit scrambled and the singer's voice is a kind of annoying.

The Japanese openings prevail again.

EDIT: Just noticed the lack of episode clips in the opening. Good job, PUSA.

But still Japanese are better.

Not my favourite. Too boy-band pop-py :( Guess I can live with it though :P The actual scenes are great :)

EDIT: OMG! Paul has an Entei! 0:02 - 0:06 :o Is that "The Trainer with a Legendary Pokemon" Ash will face on the last Episode of the series? Because Entie and it's fellow Cats unlock a special even in BW so this could be revering to the upcoming series.

*feels smart for noticing it and being the first to post about it*

I dont like it. It just, I dont know. I mean it is'nt what it used to be like on Johto Journeys, just not as much quick and up beat.

I suggest you watch the Japanese version of this opening. They don't imply at all that Paul has an Entei. In fact, Paul isn't even seen until the very end.

Worst opening yet, like they did way better in the Ag songs that this. Pun krock and Pokemon will not mix, it's a recipe for complete disaster. I'll stick to the Japanese version, thank you very much. :D

The first thing I thought of is: A little boy is watching the Pokemon anime, and then his mom comes in and asks him, "Oh what's that cartoon about?" And then the little boy sings that song exactly as it is in the opening, with the exact same voice and everything and with backing music coming out of nowhere - "It's about hope, it's about dreams...". And at the end of his song the mom is like "oh..." and she walks away.

Haha in my mind it is very funny.

Also I like the opening.

Way to burst my bubble :P On another note, I live the Japanese Opening! Why couldn't the English one be as upbeat T_T

I don't like the Japanese song. I really don't like it when Japanese women sing in those squeaky little girl voices.

I agree with this part, although despite that stupid voice I like it better than the other one, though, that's not saying much haha.
I hope the Gen V openings will be better, I don't think I've liked any themes since the Johto series.

Congratulations, you just changed the way I'm going to look at this theme for the rest of my life. I can't stop playing this scenario over and over again in my mind.

Ohmygosh. If Ash doesn't win the Sinnoh League I will be PISSED. :O
But yeah, the Japanese theme is superior to the American one...the American one is sooo cheesy...*shrugs* oh, well. I'll live.

lolwut? Since when did Paul have an Entei?

...is all I could think about during the first twenty eight seconds.

Then I appeared and it was all good ;-) Tch, Arceus is the center of attention as always...

I like the end where it has Ash versus his rivals =D All four of them

'Sinnoh League Victors' sounded like 'Shiver Me Timbers'...yeah

As for the song? The old opening was better...
