POKEMON SONG PARODY EVENT
Are you one of those people who write as much lyrics as Taylor Swift after a break-up? Or are you one of those people who listened to the Elite Four theme and just had to sing along (to the nonexistent words)? Well, then this is the place for you, and its absolutely free! The Pokemon Song Parody competition is an event where you, the members of PokeCommunity get to write your own lyrics to popular PokeTunes (meaning the music found in-game, from any generation), maybe even sing along, and win prizes! It is a creative and fun-filled competition that takes almost no effort at all.

Categories
Lyrics Segment: here all you have to do is write new lyrics to Pokemon music found in the popular games. It can be witty, hilarious, tear-jerking, or all of the above!

Singing Segment: basically the same as the Lyrics Segment, but there is one catch...you actually have to sing/rap your lyrics to the tune! It takes courage, but these always turn out to be the most entertaining and creative!

Rules
1. All PokeCommunity rules apply (meaning be nice, fair, and nothing inappropriate).
2. Multiple submissions are permitted, but only one can win a prize.
3. No plagarism! Even if you are entering the Singing segment, you must use your own lyrics and sing them.

Schedule
Entry Period:
12:00 AM, Friday, July 15 to 11:59 PM, Monday, July 18

Judging Period:
12:00 AM, Tuesday, July 19 to 11:59 PM, Friday, July 22

Judging Criteria
Your judges for this event are Lady Gaga and Bluerang1. We will review all submissions and make a conclusive result based on these criteria:

Lyrics Segment
Rhythm and Rhyme
Appeal
Use of articulate and expressive words and lyrics

Singing Segment
All criteria from Lyrics Segment
Vocal ability
Performance quality

Emblems
These are the prizes for this event. There are emblems for first place (in both categories) an honorable mention, and even for just participating!


Whistling through Route 1
You didnt win, but you still deserve a big thumbs-up for participating in the Pokemon Song Parody Competition during Get-Together 8!


Stuck in my Head
We dont know what you did, but you sure do deserve this Honorable Mention for your submission in the Pokemon Song Parody Competition during Get-Together 8!


The Next McCartney
Wow, your voice is beautiful! And you wrote that too? Incredible. Congratulations on First Place in the Singing Segment in the Pokemon Song Parody Competition during Get-Together 8!


The Next Shakespeare
To be or not to be, that is the question. For you, "to be" seems to be the answer, since you have won First Place in the Lyrics Segment in the Pokemon Song Parody Competition during Get-Together 8!

Submission Guidelines
Submit your entry using these forms (they are not too difficult, and your entry will be denied if it does not use this format).

Lyrics Segment
Song name:
Link to song (YouTube or MP3):
Lyrics: (say when the lyrics start in the video)

Singing Segment
Song name:
Link to song (Youtube or MP3):
Lyrics:
Link to performance (Youtube or MP3):

This way we know exactly which Pokemon song is being parodied. For example, if you just said "Route 1", we don't know if that is Kanto or Unova Route 1, and even if you did specify Kanto, we dont know which version (since all version have different tempos and the such). That way, if you just give us a link to the tune, we know exactly what the lyrics are supposed to be sung with!

Examples
Song name: Pokemon R/B/Y Gym Leader Battle
Link to song (YouTube or MP3): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OO5VAKk0d8
Lyrics: (starts at 0:04)
First up is Brock he uses Ground and Rock
If you start with Squirtle you got this guy on lock
With a hit from his Bubble, you can take out the double,
Onix turns into rubble, Geodude is in trouble (oh!)
If you start with Charmander he's the hardest choice of the batch
You will need to take the Pokemon out with Ember and/or Scratch
Or you can, be a man, and go get a Caterpie
Level ten, that is when, it will evolve into Butterfree
Confusion might just be enough
But be careful Onix can be tough
If you have, Pikachu, you might want to store it away in a box
It will get crushed by rocks
If you start off with Bulbasaur
Vine Whip, Vine, Vine Whip!

Singing Segment
Song name: Pokemon R/B/Y Gym Leader Battle

Lyrics: if you put the lyrics in the actual video or in the description, then dont worry about putting them here!

Why you so lonely? D: I'm terrible at writing lyrics, especially to ingame music, but I'm going to try! (Just for you!)


Lyrics Segment
Song name: Blue/Red Bicycle theme
Link to song (YouTube or MP3): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxU2UjAjN24&feature=related
Lyrics: Start straight from the beginning.

Let's hop on our bicycles,
Spending all day riding around on wheels, and
It's time to ride! (It's time to ride!)
It's time to ride! (It's time to ride!)
Time to go riding all around the world.

Hey! Now don't forget your bag! It's carrying all your swag,
And don't you know you'll need all that stuff soon.

Just riding on my bike, I'm just feeling like,
The king of the whole flipping world, don't you know!
Yes I do! (I do!)

Go hop on your bicycle,
Spend all day biking around the world with me, so
We'll be just fine! (We'll be just fine!)
We'll be just fine! (We'll be just fine!)
I wanna bike around the world with you.

Hey! Let's go to Cycling Road! You've got no heavy load,
So let's just go, you and me on our bikes.

Just riding on our bikes, we'll be feeling like,
The kings of the whole flipping world, don't you know!
Yes we will! (We will!)

Let's hop on our bicycles . . . (fade to silence)

~~~~~

In hindsight, that wasn't too bad for a quick whip-up. :D (I hope)

EDIT: If I find some spare time, I'll sing it too . . . wait, that's probably a bad idea.

(The longest video I could find)
Lyrics: (They start immediately.)

Ohhhh, look it’s just a little girl,
What will she have? Not a Poliwhirl,
Probably just a Jigglypuff,
It won’t even be very tough,
It may even be a Mareep,
At least I won’t have to lose any sleep.

It's short, but I tried at least.

Wow, according to the postbit, I wrote that at three in the morning local time. Regardless, you've said multiple entries are allowed, right? That was really fun, which took me by surprise, so I might make another one or even two. This goes till the end of Monday EST, right? That gives me till about mid-afternoon on Tuesday here XD.

This is going to be a little too much amateurish. O_o

Song name: Olivine Lighthouse, Mt. Silver Cave BGM
Link to song (YouTube or MP3): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8FzeoXKzvs
Lyrics: 0:01 (roughly, some milliseconds before it.)
0:01 My adventure is now reaching an.. end..
0:08 Because, to battle Red, I was sent...
0:15 I've caught Ho-Oh... and Lugia too...
0:22 Got Regigigas... And Mewtwo...
(Pause)
(Just before 0:33) I've conquered all gyms in both lands...
0:41 Venturing through grass, seas and sands...
0:48 Cyndaquil, was the one... I chose...
0:55 To achieve... my great cause...
(Pause)
01:05 My adventure is now seeing its last days...
01:12 Before I battle Red under the sun's rays...
01:20 The legendary trainer... From Pallet town.
01:27 The unbeatable one... With the legends' crown...
(Pause)
End

Of course, only one prize. XP This is just too fun to not do more of.

In any case, here's my second entry. I was listening to it before and it made me so sad, so let's try it. I can't remember the exact context of the song, so it might be a little shaky story-wise, but . . . actually, no, sod it. I'm writing what I feel here, not necessarily what's in the game. >>

Man, this is hard to put words to, but I really want to do this one.

Lyrics Segment
Song name: Emotion (Pokemon B/W)
Link to song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zrn5TXjl_dM
Lyrics: Again from the beginning.

Guess that's it
Time to quit
Yes, I know that you loved it.
The times we had,
Good and bad.
Yes, I know that it's sad.

Because the things we did,
The words we said,
Will always be there with us,
And now that it's over,
I don't know what to do,
Without you.

But I'll do
The best I can,
With these hands
I know that you'd want me to
For memory
Posterity
It's time to let you go

Because our time to spend
Is at an end
But maybe we'll meet again
Because now that it's over,
You know I'm with you
Forever
And always.

Me and you,
So don't be blue,
I'll be right there with you... (fade out)

... 'Scuse me. I'mma go cry in this corner over here, k?

A little research tells me this song plays for Bel or Cheren or something, but for some reason I will always associate it with N. He is the one who was in my mind when I wrote this, so that might give it a bit of perspective.

That was beautiful Misheard, I really love how you just poured all your heart into those lyrics. He also makes a great example, your songs dont necessarily have to be about Pokemon, just go to its tunes ;D

Oh no, we got in a dou-ble batt-le

We have to beat them or I will black out!
Oooooh noooo, you took some damage,
I'll heeeaaall yooouuu!
Come on back, you need to rest in your Pokeball!
I'll have to send out my Meinshao.
Oshawott, you can use Leer on those Pokemon,
So Meinshao can take them out next tuuuuurrrnn!
Ooooooohhhh my goooooooddd,
Weeeeee fainteeeeeed them aaaaaaaaaall!
Good job guys, we won the batt-le (yay, yay!) Now we can go,
Oh no, there's more pokemon over there!

I'm done here!

That's where I have to end. I need to get to bed cause I'm sick. But I hope I do good!
