This is anime-specific, so I'll just kick this over there. :)

I liked the "We Will be Heroes" theme because it was first used in The Rise of Darkrai. I also like the original (English) Pokemon theme for nostalgia reasons.

"I Believe" from Johto Master Quest has always been a favorite of mine. A really upbeat song accompanied the season well.

"I Want to be a Hero" is just an awesome theme for my favorite season, Advanced Battle. Of course, both of these are for the English dub.

I've always loved the Route 26 and 27 theme, and the anime version just so happens to be my favourite.

We will be heroesssss, we can change the world if we tryyyyy!

DP: Battle Dimension had the best theme music for me! That song was CONSTANTLY stuck in my head. It just completely summarized what the show was about for me. Sure the classic Gotta Catch 'Em All tune is right up the top too, but Battle Dimension just took it to a whole new level. :3 Incidently, the second ever theme tune (I don't remember the name but it's like "We all live in a Pokemon world, I wanna be the greatest master of them all!") is my least favourite by far. How uninspiring is that theme tune? D: Oh and the Pokemon Johto one was upbeat and fun too, another favourite <3

My fave theme was We Will Be Heroes - the Season 11 (Pokemon: DP Battle Dimension) opening.

My favorite theme is the first English dub theme, followed by "Born To Be A Winner" (Johto League Champions).

Advance Battle and Born to be Winner because it's ironic considering Ash keeps losing in Advance Battle and Johto league champions

I like them all in there own way, but the BEST was the Original.

I like the first 5 OP Themes and OP 8: Unbeatable.

Perhaps I misunderstood the "theme" bit in the thread's title. While the Route 26/27 theme is my favourite in the anime overall, my favourite opening theme is definitely "Born to be a Winner".

The first opening is my favorite American theme followed by Pokemon World, but my overall favorite is the Japanese opening 9: Battle Frontier, it's a beautiful song. Second to that is the the tenth theme "Spurt", and the third being the first Japanese theme.

In English, my favorite will be Unbeatable and We will be Heroes. The songs are great and beautiful...

In Japanese, my all time favorite would be Advance Adventure. I liked the tune so much....

And my least favorite would be Black and White..... Never liked that one... But never the less, I liked all English theme songs except this one....

I loved almost every themes, but my favourite ones are "Born to be a winner" and the Original Theme, in english or in french they are awesome. Even in evry other languages I think.

I also liked a lot the 9th opening, the 6th, the 7th, the... I guess I loved them all (except the 10th that's just horrible).

My favorite theme song from Pokemon is the the Pokemon Advanced Challenge Theme! It's freakin awesome. It's like one of those songs that when you listen to it with headphones on, you go outside and take a walk while walking like a BOSS.

try it, it's fun. I don't do that, i'm not that weird...

My favourite was Pokemon Johto. It was so catchy and I enjoyed.
I felt like the themes went downhill after the anime went to Sinnoh.

kind of late reply.... I love "Rivals" the second opening in Japanese, and I also love trying to sing along to "OK" the third opening in Japanese.

I prefer the original Japanese openings over the Americanized versions.

I loved all the English themes right up until Advanced. However, I personally prefer a number of the Japanese theme songs to many English ones, such as "Together", "アドバンス・アドベンチャー" and "めざせポケモンマスター".
