Oh, here's a topic I like :3

R/B/Y - I love most of the route melodies from these games. Except the very first one :p I also prefer the older versions, as I never much liked the soundfont of gen III Kanto (gen III Hoenn was much better). But the very best two melodies are some of the last ones. Namely the hall of fame tune and champion battle tune. Still to this day, I consider that original version the best champion battle tune. Maybe only rivaled by the Hoenn one, which was pretty good. Also, Pallet Town had a wonderful tune.

G/S/C - Violet/Olivine City :3 But I think actually that most of the gen II Johto music is wonderful in my ears, despite it being very unmodern. It might be nostalgia. Another clear favorite though, is Game Corner! dayum

R/S/E - The title screen music is the best of all title screen music of pokémon games, imo. Other favs are: Route 104, Route 113, Mt Pyre (peak).

I might list more later.

There's probably a lot of nostalgia in this, but I favor most, if not all, R/B/Y's tracks. I even have them in my (current) "game" playlist of 3000+ tracks! I think they're among the best during that gen, aside from the fact that I love 8-bit music.

But generally, all the Bike and Surf tracks are among my top favorites. The Bike gives that happy jingling you'd (well, I do) wanna have whenever travelling happily with friends across anywhere, while Surf gives a more soothing and calm tone.

I'll answer this topic

Gen 1: route 1 as it makes me feel up for the adventure ahead of me.
Gen 2: Ruins of alph: I do not really have a reason for this one
Gen 3: Hoenn: Diving theme: it makes happy
Gen 3: Kanto: Route 1 same reason as before
gen 4: Shinoh: Gym leader theme- it fires up for the challenge
gen 4: Johto/kanto: Groudon/kygore theme- it reminds me of the past when I battled them in Hoenn
Gen 5: of course Difrtwood: it is very catchy

I only played the Gen 5 games, so I don't know what the other pieces of music are like.

BW: Gym battle theme. I like the old version better than the remixed version.
B2W2: Aspertia City, although Join Avenue and Humilau City come a close second.

I love the song for Cherrygrove and Violet City, as well as the Magnet train theme in G/S/C.The battle theme in the Kanto Region was pretty awesome.
In R/S/E, the underwater music was epic.
The Battle music in White/Black 1&2 happens to be one of the best in the series.
I like the the Snowpoint City Theme in Sinnoh, and the remake of the G/S/C is amazing all around.

I'm sure there are many that I've liked over the years, but the ones that stood out to me enough that I remember them even now -

The Team Galactic battle theme in DPPt.
The Jubilife City theme in DPPt.
The Littleroot Town theme in RSE.
The Skyarrow Bridge theme in BW/B2W2.

Not really a fan of the themes introduced in R/S/E...
Really liked Goldenrod city in gen II
Azelea's remake (for the Sevii isles), Mauville city, Mt. Chimney, Hoenn's E4 battle theme and the magma/aqua bases are my favorites from gen III
I only like Cynthia's battle theme from gen IV.
Finally, Driftveil city, Elesa's gym and B/W2 Rival and team Plasma themes are the ones I like most from gen V.

I like most of R/S/E's soundtrack. I also like most, if not all, of the battling themes, especially Black 2/White 2's Champion theme (Iris). The only one I don't really like is Lugia's battle theme in HG/SS.

Gen 1 - championchampionchampionchampionchampion (especially in FR/LG)
Gen 2 - I like the Trainer theme and the Game Corner Theme
Gen 3 - The dive theme is super special awesome cool (i apologize I needed to make that reference)
Gen 4 - Lake Verity. Mostly caused by nostalgia and how beautiful it is.
Gen 5 - Gym Leader's Last Stand. Really fits the tense mood of the situation.

Pink Moon is on its way.

The R/B/Y champion battle theme is one of my all-time favorites. When I first heard it, I was speechless. It was inexplicably amazing. Cherrygrove City music was my favorite in G/S/C, and also the Goldenrod City theme.

Every time I listen to the ending from R/S/E, I end up crying inside. It's way too much awesome. The outside theme of Mt. Pyre is awesome as well. Whenever I'm there, the music always inspires me to train my Pokémon. Some of my other favorite R/S/E tracks are the gym leader theme, Elite Four theme, and the rival battle theme.

The Route 201 theme from D/P/Pt is nice, as well as the Route 209 theme. From B/W, my favorite track is the Team Plasma battle music. There are a lot of other tracks that I like, but it's going to take me a very long time to list all of them. ^^"

RBY's Gym Leader theme is one of my favorites. So is the theme for Vermillion City. All other Vermillion themes are terrible. It sounds like it gets more and more sedate everytime it gets remixed. HGSS's Vermillion theme is just laughable.

Oh, can't forget Goldenrod City! Yay, Goldenrod!

Do do do, do do.

This makes me happy.

Never played the other generations. Gen 3 was the only game I played from the main series. Since I started with Ruby then Emerald.
The other Pokemon game I played was Mystery dungeon red.
It doesn't matter how old you are. If you like Pokemon - no matter how childish people say it is - and playing it makes you happy, go ahead and play it. Who cares what other people think.
