I gave my vote to RBY because of the champion theme which is my favorite music in all of the Pokemon games. I can't really recall any of the other sounds from some of the newer games because I usually listen to my ipod when playing Pokemon nowadays.

I really thought that Platinum had the best music. I only really liked one of the soundtracks, which was when you were on your way towards the spear pillar.

The best in the series is BW. They really paid attention not only to music, but to general sound effects this time. There is a good deal of Sinnoh that I like as well (Route 217 <3).

Worst? RSE. It had good tunes such as Champion, and evil team theme, but the overabundance of trumpets was really exaggerated and sounded completely artificial compared to the 8-bit gems of RBYGSC. Back then I thought it was because of the GBA sound engine. When I learned it was producer choice, I disliked it even more.
It'd be nice to some day read a post of yours in which you DON'T take the opportunity to go beyond the scope of the question to complain about RSE. It's extremely tedious.


On topic - Unova, IMO, has the best music from a production standpoint - impressive in quality and variety, and particularly the little themes that are added based on season or who you talk to or such. Sinnoh though has my personal favorite music, and my single favorite piece in any of the games - the Team Galactic battle theme.

I recently got into the gym battle from LeafGreen. I really like the arrange of the original theme. It really fired me up in the Elite Four.

There can only be one: Definitely Pokemon RBY, the original, awesome, 8bit Perfection!
I dont know about you guys, but as soon as i hear a tune of the original games, i get instant
flashbacks of the first time i played the game. So many memories...That's something the new games are never going to be able to do. Don't believe me? Check out the video and think again

B2W2 takes the cake for me. All the other games have awesome tracks too, but PWT Final, and Colress Battle Theme are some of the most amazing tracks I've ever heard from Pokemon to date.

I think gold, silver and crystal had the best soundtrack. HG/SS was ok but they made too many changes to most of my favorite tracks such as the Kanto gym theme.

I kind of wish there was a multiple choice option in the poll, since I'm torn between R/S/E and BW. The RSE music just got something about it that makes you feel like your on and adventure. All of the trumpets and rolling drum are cheerful and rather catchy. And then BW has some of the most beautiful music in any Pokemon game I've heard. Plus I love how some of the song have "layers" that you turn on and off by interacting with certain people and places. It so well composed and I can find myself humming the songs all the time. Gen V in general had some amazing tunes in it.

It may be because I started out with Gen III, but my favorite pokemon soundtrack had to be from the Hoenn Region in R/S/E. I just felt the powerful orchestral score was amazing and used every last bit of the GBA's audio capabilities. If we are talking about any Pokemon game here and not just the handheld titles, then the best music was from Pokemon Colosseum/XD: Gale of Darkness.

I think diamond, pearl and platinum has the best soundtrack. I like all of the route and town/city music with my favorite being the Veilstone City theme.

Gen 3 and Gen 5 had the best soundtracks. Pretty much every track in these games were flawless and truly pushed the system's sound quality

I'll agree with some, every game (I have not played RBY or GSC) has its part with awesome music - really gets me excited and pumped up for the battle or what ever scene is going on. Sort of like preparing for the unexpected.

Overall, I love the music/soundtrack in the Black2/White2 game - pretty much every gym battle (especially with Roxie) and Elite 4.

My favorite is Diamond and Pearl. I love the song for Solaceon City!

My second favorite is Yellow and Blue. Especially some of the songs when you are walking on a certain route. They're really catchy. XD

My favorite themes were the Tin Tower in GSC and the Distortion World in Platinum. Very few songs have made me feel like I was literally in another world but somehow those particular 2 managed to pull it off.
