View Full Version : Whats your favorite pokemon music gen?

August 16th, 2007, 9:24 PM
Which music do you think was the coolest in all of the pokemon handheld games? I personally liked the 2nd (GSC) the best. It just seemed to be more exciting and dramatic. I always liked the music when you would battle your rival Silver/???. All of the other ones just don't seem catchy.

I like the D/P music in some of the battles... like the Shirona one and the ones against Darkrai and Shelmi. >.<

FR/LG was great. R/S/E was crap.

August 16th, 2007, 9:30 PM
I love the music for the rival battles up to crystal. The rival battle was killed in ruby. I love the music when you fight archie/maxie. I also like the music when you fight E4 in FR/LG and the frontier brain music. I have my battle against Noland recorded and I play it for the music. I love that music.

i dont know if i can vote on any particular one... they all have their ups and downs. im one of those people who spends way too much time listening to pokemon music and showing it to my friends only to have them look at me strange, lol. but lets see, the first and second gen games bring back the most memories, gosh i wish they would remake gold/silver. i love the music in battle frontier, and i remember going crazy about the battle tower music in crystal. i think they butchered it in d/p. i love the music in frlg, maybe only because its remixes of the old songs, i remember having to record the "lake of rage remix" cus i loved it so much. but right now the music ringing in my mind is that of d/p, i LOVE the music in the snow route, and fighting gymleaders and cynthia. theres alot of other music that i love that i cant think of right now, im sure they'll get to me.

I love the R/S/E music better than the others.
Route 119, Route 110, Route 120, and other music tracks are my favorites.

Some of the D/P music tracks are good too, like the music for routes 216/217, the legendary battle music, and Route 222.

August 16th, 2007, 10:58 PM
Yeah, I love the music in ruby on the route you catch feebas. It rocks.

August 16th, 2007, 11:19 PM
I like all the music, just some more then others, as in order.

1st: G/S/C
2nd: FR/LG
3rd: D/P
4th: R/S/E
5th: R/B/Y

The Ruby and Sapphire music.

August 17th, 2007, 2:25 AM
The crystal 'legendary dog' music was great.

This is tough. I guess I like bits and pieces of everything. I like Gold/Silver's music for the elite 4. The building and the battles, especially Lance's music. I like Ruby/Sapphire's surfing music and certain city's music. Emerald had Battle Fronteir which was awesome. Firered/Leafgreen have the best battle music. Diamond/Pearl I like Victory Road.

Favorite music...

Wild Pokemon

Trainer battles

General Route music

Champion music

Gym battle music

Rival music


City/town music

Extras (legendaries/Safari Zone, etc)

I have yet to play through D/P (my computer doesn't have enough memory to run this game normally and I don't have a DS) but I've watched tons of videos online to say that the battle music for D/P is one of the best battle music in the series. I haven't heard much other music.

I prefer the original beeps and bloops of the original RBY than the newer remixed FR/LG, but this is only judging by videos I've seen and some firsthand playing at Target.

In general, the Second generation has better music than the others though.

August 17th, 2007, 8:49 AM
I like the music in D/P above the Resort area where the Gloom are.

It is really different. me likey

August 17th, 2007, 6:25 PM
D/P's legendary battle themes are simply epic. (y)

August 17th, 2007, 9:22 PM
My favourite Pokemon music generation is FireRed/LeafGreen music. But it is not in the poll. Anwyay, I will choose Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald music.
EDIT: 4500th post!

Congrats on 4500 posts! I like the E4 and champ battles for FR/LG. It's really catchy. To bad (using Richard Steel's term) the E4 are dirt...they don't deserve that music XD. The music when you fight the Regi's is really catchy, and the music in the seafloor cavern scared me to death!

August 17th, 2007, 10:29 PM
The E4 in FR/LG? Blue freaking has a T-tar and Zam X.x Scary in-game team. I love the G/S/C kanto gym leader music =d

August 17th, 2007, 10:40 PM
I wish I wouldn't have sold my gold version, as it had some of the best music. Islands 4-7 of the sevii islnds in LG feature gold music. I love that music, very...un-annoying.

August 18th, 2007, 2:44 AM
Pearl & Diamond.

It's pretty dramatic. I love the legendary music too.

August 18th, 2007, 7:11 AM
Diamond and Pearl because Team Galactic has a cool battle music. That's the only reason I even like Team Galactic the first place. >.>

The Galactic boss theme is even better than their normal theme. Too bad you get to only hear it twice through the entire game. That's why I downloaded the soundtrack to listen to it whenever I want.

August 18th, 2007, 7:47 AM
Leafgreen has some pleasent musical scores on it, along with Sapphire. Diamond and Pearl are okay, I suppose.

Ruby, Sapphir and Emerald, Why ?

S.S Tidal and Birney's Ship Music
Oceanic Museum--Sorta like the S.S Anne, music, but a bit different
Victory Road--Now that music was cool
E4 Battle Music--I always sing the entry music when I battle the Elite 4

All right ! 200th post !

August 18th, 2007, 8:46 AM
LeafGreen has great tracks (Viridian Forest, Celadon, Rival, E4, etc.)... except the end battle music that they kept over from RSE... ugh. That's horrible. So I'll vote RBY, because I don't see a FRLG option.

I love the pokecenter night music from DP, Jubilife city and the music on the route between Hearthome and Solaceon. But I'm pretty dissappointed with the rest of the tracks. Most of the RSE music was pretty bad too.

August 18th, 2007, 11:12 AM
Fr/Lg D/p Best ones yet! The r/s/e had bad music =/ The only decent music was against The AquA/mAGMA bosses and thats about it

RSE IMO sucked mostly. I only have like 6 songs on my computer from that game. Route 119, Mt Chimney, boss battle, and a few others. Although not really noticable, FRLG's gym song was different than RSE's and also better.

RBY, I only listen to it for nostalgia. Back then, I didn't listen to GB music for entertainment.

FRLG - I loved over 75% of the music in that game. I loved most of the cities, routes and the islands.

DP - DP is the best. I like 75% of their music too with Kurogane and Shirona's theme being the top.

I love everything about the 2nd gen!!!

August 18th, 2007, 2:10 PM

I love the trainer battle theme for the G/S/C games lol! I give this generation too much credit nothing lives up to G/S/C >_>

August 19th, 2007, 9:29 AM
Hah, it's funny, I was just discussing this with somebody last night. I didn't even notice this thread. XD

Personally, I prefer the R/S/E music over any of it. :O It just has a really nice feel to it, it's catchy, and it always fit together nicely. <3
