Pokemon X and Y Themes [Main Post]




Spoiler:
Hello! I've been messing with FL Studio lately, and I created a couple of custom themes upon thinking about Pokemon X and Y. There's about four to share right now, but I'm constantly working on newer ones (the first soundtrack was made only half a month ago). I'd love it if someone can give me comments/concrit (constructive criticism) or even better - work together!

1. City of Tranquility

Designed to be the counterpart of the theme below, City of Tranquility has a bit of hope and windy feel to it from time to time.




2. City of Souls

Preferably a ghost town theme since it's pretty melancholy if you ask me. This is what my friend pictures when listening -
Spoiler:
0:00 - 0:13 | Relatively quick glimpse of the town's overview. There are a lot of gray stones, colored stained glass mosaics, and metal gates with spikes on top of them though not very forboding). Gates and fences are everywhere, protecting the scarce grass growing in people's yards.

0:14 - 0:49 | A singular boy is exploring the town for the first time, noticing that everyone is staring at the ground glumly. He decides to explore more of the allyways (especially at 0:32), where he sees many people quietly playing instruments for some pocket change. Though they don't look impoverished, they are certainly disheartened.

0:50 - 1:16 | He goes down a path that no one seems to be walking down. As he travels down it, he notices it's brighter, and has grass and pink flowers on either side of him. There are only low fences, easily able to be stepped over, shielding the plants, contrasting with the completely protected grass in people's front yards. The place gets brighter and brighter until he looks ahead. There, he finds a singular tombstone, with flowers already there. It's not certain if they're fresh or fake, but they give no smell, only beauty. He can't read the writing on it, but believes that it's not actually a person buried, but an idea.

1:17 Onward | The boy finally figures out what's underneath the tombstone, and it gives him hope. He gets up and walks away, revitalized and encouraged for some reason. No one ever knows what he discovered, and no one ever knew he came there, but it changed his life forever.





3. Seaside Town

The name says it all, really. A joyful one in 3/4 beat (same used in waltz, so it does have that dancey feel to it).




4. Hometown Theme

My first soundtrack, so I wasn't that experienced back then. The volume's soft, so I'm sorry about that ;_; After a short while, I've changed it a little to make it a 'fast' version. Both of them are down there -

Hopy you guys enjoy it! Right now, I'm making a new theme called the 'City of Tranquility', a 'counterpart' of the 'Soul' theme. It will have Xerneas as the cover picture instead of Yveltal as well, so stay tuned! Also, sorry that I can't post youtube links here directly - they don't seem to be working :(
These are really good, I'm impressed! I'm assuming you made them all yourself from scratch which is very impressive considering they sound like they could easily be used in-game. The word that came to mind when I listened to them was "professional", I'm not sure there's much better thing to say about someone's work haha. My favourite by far was the City of Souls Track, I absolutely loved the feeling it gave and I'd love to hear it in-game whilst walking around. Only slight criticism I have is that the mostly sound quite... 'expected', if you get what I mean? They're not a huge break from any of the music featured in BW/BW2 and honestly it was quite predictable where the tunes were going to end up whilst listening to them. Although based on the fact that they're supposed to be backing music whilst you're doing 101 other things in-game, I'm not sure that's such a bad thing. I'd love to hear more if you get round to making any!

Also I'll add City of Tranquillity to the featured section based on the amount of positive comments it seems to be receiving!
