Everybody, Its been confirmed that there will be new music themes in B2 and W2. Here's an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWFXQwUXbuM&feature=g-all-u&context=G23dc5ebFAAAAAAAAHAA
Its slightly modified from the Wild battle music.

Do any of you guys/girls like it?

Apparently even cities and towns will have a remixed version, just like the Kanto themes in GSC and HGSS.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm excited to listen to the new themes!

I'm very excited to see how the music is remixed/changed. Especially the music the new towns/cities will have!

However, if this is the legendary music for Black Kyurem and White Kyurem, I am disappoint. I expected something with more beat to it, that causes tension. I wasn't very happy with most of the music in Black and White, and thought it was a let down. So here's to hoping B2W2 changes that?!

Don't worry, this won't be the Legendary theme. They probably just used it to hide any other remixes but used Black/White Kyurem to show off their sprites.
Gamefreak wouldn't use such a playful theme for the 2nd most powerful pokemon in the world.
But like you, I hope they do improve themes in B2 W2.

I'm in love with the current Trainer Battle music of Black and White, so if they remixed it and made it better, I'm going to cry happy tears of joy.
I really hated the music for the rival battles, so hopefully they made it a bit more...more everything, really.

I don't even know if they will keep that rival theme from BW because it was for Cheren and Bianca. But hopefully they do make it more epic because the rival in B2W2 is more of a rival than a friend.

I'm not too surprised by it, but hurrah new music I suppose. Just leave in the tunes (or make minor updates to) that I liked in BW. =p

I didn't mind the BW rival theme but hopefully the new one is also good.

I agree 100%. It was too childish to be quite honest. I guess it fit Bianca though. But from what I could hear, the rival music sounds beast.

Because most of B/W's soundtrack disappointed me, I'm almost scared to find out what most of the music sounds like in these games. I'd really like if the legendary battle music (and to be honest, any music) that should sound intense IS intense. coughaldercough

Dear God, they had better change the Champion's battle music. It SUCKED. Did not fit a Champion what-so-ever omg. It felt more like the Elite Four music, and then the Elite four music should have been for Alder. Hopefully they fixed this in the new games.

Just checking out other stuff like wild battle theme..fairly similar in tune but it is noticeably different in arrangement of instruments. Not sure which is better yet really imo, the older or newer.

Yes I agree with you, it sucked. Alders theme sounded too much like Cyrus'. I hope they make the champion theme fit for a champion in B2W2 and hope they completely redo it instead of improve it. But I want an improved version of the BW E4 theme to stay in B2W2.

Heard the Introduction to the World of Pokémon theme. They didn't change it?

New wild battle theme samples I've heard are decent. It's nothing really too different, but I guess it reminds us that we're still in Unova.

That is true, which is why I expect most of the remixes/edits for the music to sound awfully like the originals of B/W.

Sounds good so far, and i'm pretty pumped to hear more.

Keep in mind that is a recreation of it so it might be slightly off.

I find this rival music a lot better than Cheren and Bianca's. To me, their rival theme was too childish and bouncy. Too playful! This one is more wicked and fierce.

Hmm, I wonder if they will make a total change for the bike and surfing music. I didn't really like the bike theme at all, but surfing was alright.

If that is how the rival song really sound I have to say it's much better than Cheren and Bianca's even if it is a recreation. I hope Kyurem's theme is more like the other two tao trio members, with added instruments ^_^

Kyurem's theme is the same as the Tao Trio's. :[

To be honest, I thought the Tao Trio's legendary music was the worst. The roaming legendary music sounded better, and they were remixes of the roaming legendaries from DPPt.

^ This is the main reason I'm scared to hear their themes. I'd like for it to keep the fast paced beat, but sound more deep and scary. Black and White didn't have that.

I agree, it need to be a bit ominous, like Arceus' theme mixed with a tone of Deoxys. They should make it sound as if something horrible is looming and is going to get you...

That is actually a very good idea. It would make each gym leader feel special and unique with their own effects to their themes.

Oh definitely, seasonal music should apply to the cities too! I'd love to see the "remix" for the seasons in cities if they don't redo route music instead. :3

Oh yes, I'd die for them to step back from repeating the Gym Leader music in both the gyms and gym battles. n__n

As for city/town music remaining the same, I agree that some should, but I'd like at least for some of the tracks to be remixed. For example, Black City and White Forest (that is if they are in the games). Opelucid too. If possible, I'd love for GameFreak to strip a couple of the route/town/city music and have entirely new tracks for them.

I hope the battle music (especially the rival themes) would change drastically, I didn't feel the music fit in with the situation, the rivals theme was all joyful instead of well, depicting rivalry... I do still like the music don't get me wrong, but they could use a little tweaking.

April 16th, 2012, 04:09 AM
I am expecting/hoping for some great new tracks. But yeah - like everyone has mentioned, we'll probably just see a lot of remixes of B/W music, which does sort of make sense considering the 2 year, same region situation.

I'm not really a fan of the B/W music for the Tao trio either - so I'm hoping for some new music. :3

That would be awesome. It give each gym leader a more in-depth personality. I can picture Shizui having a Hawaiian or reggage like theme. Or Elesa would have a techno theme or something you'd hear on a runway (since she's a model)

I'll also like to hear a more epic victory road theme, the current one sounds like ghost town music to me...

Yeah I really didn't like it much either.


I really hope they don't change the Village Bridge music much. I don't think it needs much change. I like the Rival battle music it's much better than Cheren's and Bianca's. I'm hoping we get more sounding like it.

That would be epic....wait beyond epic. You mean similar to N's battle theme from normal to final N. If it does intensify I want it with the face and slow pace of legendary pokemon battle music (Cobalion, Thundurus,..etc not Reshi, Zek or Kyu)

I'm hoping to hear Nimbasa City to sound a little more pumped up. I mean, it's a city practically made of electricity, everyone is excited and running all over the place, so a little more energetic music would fit it much better than what it has now.

I do like the recreation of the Hiougi City theme, though. Very jolly, sounds like a starting town should sound instead of all the super slow peaceful music, which is nice, but it doesn't get me excited to start my Pokemon journey.

Nimbasa will probably get a remix sorta in line with Black's Opelucid, tbh. That kind of energy would suit it and I'm sure B2/W2 could deliver on that. :3 Or at least give everything a sorta water-based theme!

-just youtubed Black Opelucid's theme since I own White-
...omg, yes. Give it that. Completely something like that all the way. But why a water-based theme?

Another thing I would like to hear redone or renewed is the theme for is Castelia City. It sounds like a big city theme, but not like a GRAND city theme, like I think it should sound. It sounds like it should be mixed with the dramatic tunes in Opelucid's theme, too.

I get what ya mean, though. Like i wish the Ferris Wheel had its own theme. That would be boss mode. THEN it'd go into the fair like music, for sure, or, maybe depending on who you ride with, it can be romantic, comical, or jolly. It'll most likely be comical every time, especially with that nervous Ace Trainer. <3

April 17th, 2012, 09:05 PM
Ferris Wheel theme? zomg, yes. Actually yeah, I think it's pretty likely for B2/W2 to expand on what we already have music-wise. Like wow, I wonder how different Route 4 will sound without all the sand etc. Don't think the normal route music would be that appropriate. :x

I'm hopeful the music in B2W2 will be good- even simple key changes can make all the difference. The battle themes (well, the fragments of them) that I've heard so far have just been keychanges, but pretty good all the same. If they remix town themes in the same way they remixed Kanto's music for GSC, I'll be even happier.

And as someone mentioned on the previous page, I found the Rival battle music a bit 'childish'- I feel it was the use of accordions and just the melody/key they used in general. If they go more in the direction of Silver's rival theme (not necessarily as 'dark' as his was)- just, more electric guitars and stuff :D

It probably depends on how many sad moments or emotional moments are there. If there's a good amount of them, it'll get used. Probably.

Unwavering Emotions? Yessss. I loved playing that track on the piano, it sounds so peaceful. Though I wouldn't want any remix of it, a slower tempo for it would be nice, but I don't know how much slower it could get. :G Also, I'd like for this track to be in a scene in the game that actually really is deep and sad even. That whole scene with Bianca and her dad, didn't really fit -this- music. At least to me it didn't.
