View Full Version : Favourite Pokémon Theme Songs?

October 23rd, 2005, 9:28 PM
(hope no one else has done this before)

Just as the title says. Which Pokémon theme songs are your favourites?

For me, generally speaking, I prefer Japanese Pokémon theme songs that don't sound like Pokémon theme songs (yes, I'm weird :P ). Specifically, «Sokoni Soraga Arukara» (Because the Sky is There), «Smile», «Pokémon Ondo», «toi et moi», «Polka o Dolka», «Pokémon Symphonic Medley», «READY GO!» and «Challenger!!» are among my top favourites.

Sokoni Soraga Arukara is definetly my favourite! Second place goes for the current opening, Battle Frontier.

As for non-anime songs, I like all the official remix songs included in the Pokemon FRLG/RuSa Soundtrack. My favourites are, however, STEVEN STONE, Gym Leader no Chikara, and Rocket Dan no Kichi.

OK... I have no idea what does ones are.

Mine is the Pokemon Advanced song. It's so catchy!

Gotta start all over again,
I wanna be a hero....

hmmm..... I like all the theme songs really.... Japanese and English.... buuuut.... my favorite english opening is probably 'Pokemon World', and favorite Japanese opening is either 'Rival' or 'Okay'.

English: The first opening, as it was melodic and not pretentious with the catching aspect of the game and play on the redemptive side with the Pokemon and criminals like the Rockets and pushing to be the best. Nothing like that. Reminds me of 80's rock almost. Almost.

I Believe, is second place, it's contemplative and cerebral and has tones of finality and full circle.

Japanese: Ready Go! Love the visual and love the melodic haunting tones, it's almost celestial in its own right. I just wish the Japanese version of the show didn't use it so much.

Although Rival and Battle Frontier are growing on me and be second (because of the lovely visuals, one of the best in the series with all the cameos), third place. Whee.

I think this belongs in the Pokemon TV Shows & Movies section. ^^; I'll move it there for you. :3

PS ~ The theme song "Johto Journeys" OWNS! XD *coughinenglishofcoursecough* X3;

Thank goodness I found the old thread so I wouldn't have to write THAT stuff all over again.
Get ready for a long post
Since I dont exacty have a favorite except for Born To be a Winner, I'll rate every English and Japanese song
Indigo English opening: the only reason I like this song is for the nastalgia and becuase it's the first song.
Orange Island E: It was IMO pretty cool, the Pokeball effect in the begining was the coolest though.
Johto Journeys E: This was okay, I like the lyrics, I just didn't LOVE it.
Johto Leage ChampionsE: My favorite because the song was off the scale in coolness, Clair had THREE FREAKIN CAMEOS and that one cameo of Misty made me drool, where she's holding Togepi and staring. http://img223.imageshack.us/img223/149/loveher4se.jpg
Masterquest E: I loved this song because it sounded so American and true! This song was truley one of the best guitar songs in Poke history.
Advanced Gen1E: it was okay, the video was better though.
AG2E: My sister's boyfriend said the song was poorly recorded and I agreed with him. But the pretty crystal blue background on the logo is so pretty. The song wasn't the best though.
AG3E: of course everyone knows that I HATE the video but the song is actually pretty awesome if you listen to just the song. I've been hearing that they say this song is 80s style. Is that true? And if so, what makes it so?

Japanese1: Until I saw the ACTUAL opening (saw only the remix and the Korean version till a few days ago. This song was incredible in so many ways, this weird nastalgic and the fact that I could sing the whole thing.
J2: Rival isn't really that bad. The first several seconds of the song is good but I think they put too much of a variety into the song because first time I listened to it, I got a headache.
J3: Megumi Hayashibara is an awesome singer! And the video made it even awesomer. Or maybe it was the first Japanese song I ever memorized. Still this song was insane!
J4: I liked this better than the original. It was much cuter and more American-ish.
J5: This was OK, not great but not too bad. A tad too techno-y for me and I didn't exactly like the way the singer pronounced the lyrics even if it is Japanese, it sure didn't sound to Japanese.
J6: Okay again, not bad, nice and calm but sometimes a little too calm for me.
J7: Ikkukyanai Yarukkyanai!!!! *sings song* I love this song because it's just so awesome and singable infact my mom says I often sing it without noticing.
J8: I wrote an essay why I thought this song and video was incredible but I cant find it, nor do I have the guts to retype it all again.
J9: I LURVE this song! I also love the singer too. I memorized the song practically within a day it was so incredible.

Sokoni Soraga Arukara is a definite favorite. It's slow-paced, motivating, and it's the song that made me feel like making Angela a music video of Satoshi with. =D

Sokoni Soraga Arukara because it is so beautiful and also Ready Go!

This is an active forum, and that thing is all the way in the 3rd page. What use. Also, this topic is considerably broader.

And, watch that Post Quick Reply button, please.

In terms of the theme songs, I've really only heard the dub ones (and Glory Day, which I didn't really like). From those, my favourite would likely be... Pokémon World, perhaps. I don't know, none of them are really in my top list of songs...

The Johto Journeies theme is my favoirte. It is fast-paced and the lyrics are really catchy.

Everybody want to be a master
Everybody wants to show thier skill
Everybody wants to get thier faster
Make their way to the top of the hill.

I would like to add the 2002 mix of «Mezase Pokémon Master» to my list of favourite theme songs. It's not a lazily done mix modeled after the styles or "rules" of the other versions of «Mezase Pokémon Master», and has a very nice fusion of Italian, electronic, and instrumental music, giving it a rather futuristic feel to the song.

November 17th, 2005, 9:14 AM
My favorite theme song is OK! I absolutely adore that song, its fast paced, great lyrics and the video to it is very cool.

For the english one its the original song for the first season. Brings back memories for me, and I also like the Orange League one.:D
