What's your favorite song in RSFRLGE? This includes all songs in the ROM, counting unused tracks.

For me, I guess the Sevii Island Theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaNP4mWg7Vo). I loved the Lake of Rage song in GSC and it feels so nostalgic, it makes HGSS' version sound... horrific.

whoa, that is really epic. ;-;

Mt. Pyre Peak also has an epic theme (seriously, the start just screams of action), as does the Abandoned Ship's theme. Most of the city themes in Hoenn are really good in the sense that they provide great background music. They don't stick in your head, but they really feel right for the area and are just great for setting atmosphere, as are the forest and cave themes. The route themes, however, are just EPIC. They get higher and higher in epic level as you progress through the game, too.

However, I'm a sucker for epic piano pieces that evoke emotion. The SS. Anne remix in the Oceanic Museum is one of the best pieces I've ever heard. It made me feel nostalgic when Emerald was the first Pokemon game I ever played. ;-; Verandturf Town is probably my favourite, although Emerald's ending song just made me shiver. It was just such an awesome song that just made me god "damn, that game was fun" when I finished.

Yeah, actually I got my top 3-

Sevii Islands
Champion (FRLG)
Oceanic Museum

The third had the best remix of the S.S. Anne I've seen. Fourth is the Deoxys theme, duh.

I like the Pallet Town remix. It sounds like the normal one but it just sounds softer and nicer. But that Sevii Island music sounds really good too. It brings back the memories of playing Crystal. :D

Well if I had to whittle all of the songs just down to three I'd have to say third place would go to the Regi's Battle music because the syncopated notes and awesome bass gives you a thrill while battling. Second would be the Sevii Isle theme just due to the nostalgia it gives off and the new instruments introduced as well, making it a personal favorite. Final my most favorite song of third gen would have to be the Abandon Ship music from R/S/E. I'm just a sap for song with a sense of distress and sorrow.

Close follow-ups were; Mt. Pyre (Peak), Pallet Town, and the R/S/E Champion theme.

My fav is Regi theme. FR/LG Champion theme is good too. And R/S/E Legendary theme.

I loved the Route 104 and Ever Grande City songs. I find the Ever Grande City song especially relaxing.

In addition, the R/S/E intro movie remix (the song that starts playing when the words "Game Freak" appear, including the repeating section at the title screen) from is still my favourite intro song out of all the Pokémon main series games that I have played.

For me, it would be (Hoenn): Deoxys or Kyogre/Groudon/Rayquaza, (Kanto): Champion/Rival.
Deoxys's music I like the most though.

i swear, stole the words right out of my mouth.

Mt. pyre has AWESOME music and some of the remixes on youtube are just transcending! Abandoned ship is sad, ghostly kind of thing but meshes really well together

My Top 5:

1)Champion Gary (The best Champion theme)
2)Sevii Islands (Awesome remix, better than GSC IMO)
3)Team Aqua/Magma Grunt Battle (Very catchy and cool music)
4)Hoenn E4 (Epic theme!)
5)Abandoned Ship/SS Annie [Both calm and relaxing :) ]

I love the abandoned ship music, but also the desert music from hoenn.

Slowking Bro
July 17th, 2010, 07:09 PM
I'd have to say it boils down to the Team Aqua/Team Magma theme, the Archie/Maxie theme, the Route the 204 Theme, it sounds nice and majestic. Also, Victory Road, Elite Four battle, and Champion Battle. Last, but not least, Route 111.

Forever
July 17th, 2010, 07:13 PM
I dunno. D: Probably the first route where you battle trainers, since that's the only one I can recall right now. It sounded somewhat peaceful (In Hoenn), though not a big fan of those games, so yeah.

Slateport's theme music, :D

Could listen to it over and over again.

July 26th, 2010, 03:37 PM
I think the best one is the Victory Road remix they did for RSE.

Time for me to be lame and say the Credits, Rival Battle, Vendanturf Town music.

SinisterEternity
July 26th, 2010, 04:50 PM
Right, I love the Elite Four Theme of R/S/E
aand the Elite Four Champion Theme ~
And also the Gym Leader Theme c:

July 26th, 2010, 05:28 PM
Archie/Maxie's battle theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBWdDjSEouE)

It's probably my favorite villainous theme in any Pokemon game ever. :D

psychic987
July 27th, 2010, 04:20 AM
I'd have to say that my favorite is the Lilycove music. I can't stop humming it when I'm bored. :D

1. FRLG Champ theme, makes me want to destroy gary
2. FRLG E4 theme, makes me feel like I'm getting the crap beat out of me and am going to make a comeback
3. Archie Maxie Theme
4. Frontier Brain Theme
5. Battle Frontier theme, makes you want to win!

The Rival battle music in RSE is worthy of mention, I feel, and does make up for a lot of the otherwise faily rival that RSE has.

But what about some other 3rd gen games? Colosseum and XD both have their own Miror B tunes that are very worthy of mention. =p

AceDragonite
July 27th, 2010, 06:33 AM
oh snap forgot about those, I looooove Mirror B's music

July 27th, 2010, 01:18 PM
FRLG champion battle and the Emerald e4. I need epic battle music to get me totally in my element.

Team aqua/magma grunt theme.

When comparing FR/LG's tracks to R/B/Y, I liked most of the Classic R/B/Y tunes better.

But there was one exception, the Pokemon Mansion theme. I liked FR/LG's much better because I found it much creepier. The R/B/Y one is all high pitched and doesn't do much to create that feel of "something real bad went down here", while the FR/LG one starts soft and gradually builds up, letting out small bursts along the way. This gives the Pokemon mansion more atmosphere as well as that dramatic tension that you've stumbled upon something really tragic and a little scary, something that shouldn't have happened at all.

Not to mention that it works well in an abandoned powerplant as well.

As for R/S/E, I don't really remember much of the music, but I did like Team Magma/ Aqua's theme.

560cool.

The remixed Johto songs of Sevii. ALL of them ! :P
But, specifically the Azalea/Blackthorn remix on Four Island (?). I kept my DS open all night to listen to it.

I <3 the Deoxys Theme. I don't know why.

July 28th, 2010, 06:16 PM
has anyone looked up the anime theme of the r/s/e wild pokemon battle? it sounds much more epic =D, as in that i mean i would run into wild pokemon just to hear the music =D

ending theme to RSE is best for piano

The best music in Generation II has to be the Champion Battle theme from FR/LG. It never gets old, no matter how many times you hear it. Still give me goose bumps. ^^

JhfJO366AM4

The HG/SS remix really doesn't do the theme justice IMO. :/

Another one I really like in FR/LG is the standard Battle theme - I know it's overplayed a tad but I reckon it whooped R/S/E's theme.

M3o5-Ny4eU0

Nice! :D

That's one of my favourite pieces of music in all of Pokemon, along with National Park and Route 14/15. 20 seconds in is when I put my '**** yeah' face on.

I honestly don't know why so many people despise the music in Hoenn. Some of it is amazing.

Concurring with the route 104 choice. I'd sometimes just stand around in there and space out to the epic music.

I also love the music in the FRLG Sevii Islands--islands 1, 2, and 3, if I'm remembering correctly. Great stuff.

August 1st, 2010, 05:39 PM
Deoxys' battle theme was probably one of the most genius songs they've ever come up with. It's just...wow. It sounds all digitalized and then get epic and then...kick-line jazzy? Awesome. Favorite song for the whole generation.

i like the FRLG gym leader/Champion theme and the emerald rayquaza theme, but most of all, i like the frontier brain theme. <3

the frontier brain music in emerald

Outside of the champion battle in FRLG, I liked most of the songs in RSE, because....well, just because. The one I liked the best would have to be, I suppose, the music that plays just before you fight the champion.

For me? Well, I would have to say EverGrande (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghp_d3KLDDk/) City, just listen to that music, it's a champion theme.

I saw this thread and said, "Oh, I know this one! Oceanic Museum, Verdanturf, and the Credits ftw!" No joke. And then I got here and read this. o_O

Though if I had to add a track from FR/LG, I'd say the theme for Routes 11-15. It's makes me feel both nostalgic and adventurous at the same time.

Sometimes, I just love to kick back and listen to a tune or two from this generation. Then I go and play a popular Russian game on my computer. Beat the Golden DVD pack, FINALLY.

Really, you do know that Colloseum and XD count right?

They fit the legendaries well, especially the Regi one.

I like the R/S/E themes, especially the music in Slateport City (I sometimes leave the DS/GBA running so I can listen to the music). In FR/LG, however, I like to listen to the Kanto trainer battle music.

August 27th, 2010, 03:25 PM

However, I also really like Slateport Oceanic Museum theme.

I must say that it comes down to the Team Aqua theme Team Magma, Archie Maxie theme, the theme of Route 204, which sounds great and majestic. In addition, Victoria Road, Battle Elite Four and the Champion battle. Last but not least, Route 111. Favorite song of a generation.
