[[folder: Main series ]]

[[folder: Pokémon Title Theme]]
* The original [[ Pokémon Theme]] itself. ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue FireRed and LeafGreen]]'' brought about [[ their own great remix]].
* ''Gold and Silver''[='s=] is [[ pretty great as well]].
** ''[[UpdatedRerelease Crystal]]''[='s=] [[ title theme]] slightly differs at the beginning from the ''Gold/Silver'' version, but soon becomes the traditional ''Gold/Silver'' title theme. It's just as good.
** Awesomeness driven UpToEleven with the simply wonderful [[ HeartGold/SoulSilver remix]]. In one minute we have: Gold and Silver's intro music, New Bark Town, Goldenrod City, Burned Tower, and the Rival and Eusine's leitmotifs.
* ''[[ Ruby and Sapphire]]''[='s=] and its remix in ''[[ Colosseum]]''.
** There's an [[ uncompressed MIDI version]] of the original hidden in the obscure game ''Pokémon Box: Ruby & Sapphire''.
** [[ The orchestrated remix]] in ''Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire'' is a truly grandiose song.
** In ''Diamond and Pearl'', [[ an unused track in the game is the theme.]]
* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Diamond and Pearl]]''[='s=] [[ title theme]] is great, too, although it plays more during the introduction ''video'' rather than on the title screen itself.
* The [[ epic remix]] from ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Black and White]]'' when you [[NearVictoryFanfare face a Gym Leader's last Pokémon]].
** ''Especially'' when the music plays during the Gym Leaders' BigDamnHeroes moment in N's Castle.
** ''Black and White''[='s=] [[ title theme]] itself is great as well.
** ''Black 2 and White 2'' version also [[ does the job]].
** ''Black 2 and White 2''[='=]s [[ title screen]].
* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY X & Y]]'''s [[ title theme]].
* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Sun and Moon]]'''s [[ title theme]]. It's just as magnificent as ever, and appears to take characteristics from every generation's title theme, with some chanting added at the end for good measure.

* The wonderfully calm [[ Pallet Town]], where it all began.
* [[ The Rival's Encounter Theme.]]
* [[ Route 1.]] You step outside, you get your starter and you leave your little pokey town and venture into the world full of hope and ambition. This tune nicely conveys that child-like sense of wonder and playfulness.
* Aaand... the [[ very first wild Pokémon battle theme]].
* The [[ Viridan/Pewter/Saffron City Theme.]] This music is classic!
* The [[ Pokémon Center Theme]]. What an EarWorm.
* The [[ Trainer battle Theme]].
* The [[ Viridian Forest]] is damned creepy! And so addicting...
* [[ The music that plays inside the Pokémon Gyms]].
* [[ The Original Gym Leader Music]]. Awesomeness on a stick. You knew it was time to get serious when you heard it.
* [[ Mt. Moon]].
* [[ The Main Kanto Route Theme]]. [[ A certain glitch Pokémon causes audio glitches, presented in the linked video as a simplified version of Route 4's music playing at Lavender Town's speed.]] It somehow makes one of the most inspiring songs in the series be slightly depressing.
* [[ Cerulean City]].
* [[ Route 24 and 25]], first heard in the game's opening and then again in said routes (between Cerulean City and Bill's House), just has that perfect adventure sound to it.
* [[ Vermilion City,]] best described as "departures, arrivals and goodbyes" in musical form. Taken UpToEleven in ''Gold and Silver''.
* The [[ S.S. Anne]] music. And since you hear it only once in the game, you will ''miss'' it.
* [[ The Bike Theme from the original R/B/Y games]]. It's so unbelievably catchy...
* [[ Route 11,]] the seaside boardwalk famous for tying Lavender Town, Vermilion City and Fuchsia City together. It's also famous for the awesomely carefree feel embodied by its BGM.
* [[ Lavender Town]]. Which is awesome in a scary way.
* The [[ Pokémon Tower music]], simultaneously saddening and damned creepy.
* [[ Celadon City]] and the [[ original Game Corner]]. So catchy and wonderful. Kind of jarring when you think about Team Rocket's presence there.
* [[ Team Rocket's Hideout]]. The true theme of Team Rocket?
* The one, the only, the original [[ Surfing tune]].
* [[ Silph Co.]], which is, in a few words, creepy, chaotic, and totally awesome.
* For the old school, the original [[ Cinnabar Island]] theme. Kinda makes you feel like you're walking on a low-bit beach, huh?
* [[ Pokémon Mansion]].
* The one, the only, the [[ original Victory Road]]. Short song, but packs an unbelievable amount of awesome into the time you spend with it.
* [[ The League Champion Theme]].
* [[ The Hall of Fame Music]].
* The [[ Ending Credits Theme]]. Even better, up until ''Diamond and Pearl'', the ending credits themes ''always'' ended with a short callback to this original.
* Even a song as basic as [[ the Printer error theme]] in ''Yellow'' is surprisingly cute and catchy.

* [[ New Bark Town]]. Probably the best starter town music in the Pokémon games. As good as the ''HGSS'' version is, there's something about the original version that just can't be topped.
* [[ Professor Elm's Lab]].
* Your Johto adventure begins with [[ Route 29]] and [[ Route 30]].
* The Johto Wild Pokémon Theme:
** [[ By day]]...
** ...and [[ by night]]. [[GoddamnedBats Hoot hoot!]]
* The [[ Tour Music]]. A catchy little tune that fits so perfectly for tutorials that it was even reused in ''Black and White 2'' and ''X and Y''.
* The [[ Pokémon Center Theme]] and the [[ Pokémon Communication Center Theme]], which can only be heard in the Japanese version of ''Crystal''.
* The [[ Rival Trainer music]]. [[ The Rival Trainer's leitmotif]] is just as good as the first games' rival's theme. If not better.
* The [[ Johto Trainer Battle Theme]]. ''GSC'' managed to make the second most-heard theme in the games epic.
* The [[ Violet City/Olivine City Music]].
* [[ The music that plays inside the Pokémon Gyms]]. You knew that this theme had to show up eventually.
* The [[ Johto Gym Leader Theme]].
* The music used in [[ Azalea Town/Blackthorn City]], setting a laid-back atmosphere for Johto with its "[[Music/GeorgeMichael Last Christmas]]"-esque tune.
* [[ Team Rocket's Battle Theme]].
* [[ Goldenrod City]], perhaps the best town theme EVER.
** Its awesomeness grows with the [[ Bike Theme REMIX!]]
** It's even better [[ if you take the train from Saffron into Goldenrod]]. They just meld perfectly into one another.
* The [[ Lucky Channel/Game Corner Music]].
* The [[ National Park Theme]].
* [[ The Bug Catching Contest music]], a remix of the first-gen Bike Theme.
* ''Gold and Silver'' probably has the most elegant [[ surf theme]] in the entire series.
* [[ The Route 38/39 music]].
* [[ Eusine's Leitmotif]] from ''Crystal''.
* [[ The Route 42/43/44 and Lake of Rage music]] is just incredible.
* [[ Team Rocket Hideout]].
* [[ Team Rocket Radio Tower Takeover]].
* [[ Dark Cave]], awesome enough to make you WANT to go in there. Also played in the [[FrictionlessIce Ice]] [[SlippySlideyIceWorld Path]], making it less [[BlockPuzzle tedious]].
* From ''Crystal'', the [[ Raikou/Entei/Suicune Theme]].
* [[ THE. TIN. TOWER.]] Almost impossible not to like this.
* [[ Route 26 and 27]]. Beat all Johto's Gyms, go back home to New Bark, Surf to your right for a few seconds, and fasten your damn seat belt, because you're in Kanto now, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch.]]
* [[ Victory Road]].
* The [[ Indigo Plateau]] theme. A very short song, but it still makes you feel like the biggest badass around when it plays.
* [[ The theme for the battle against Lance/Red]], which [[RecurringRiff borrows from RBY's main theme]]. One of the best final boss themes in video game history.
* The [[ Credits Theme]] sticks the most out of all the tracks in the game.
* [[ The S.S. Aqua]]. You've just beaten the champion, Professor Elm has given you a boat ticket, and then you're on your way! To...
* [[ Vermillion City]]! The nostalgic feeling of being in Kanto again. The sense of achievement of coming this far, on your long journey from Johto. How could this not be awesome?
* [[ The Kanto Trainer Battle Theme]].
* [[ Kanto's wild battle]] theme makes encountering Rattata seem like a legendary has arrived.
* The Kanto Gym Leader theme. Dear Lord, as awesome as the ''HG/SS'' version of this song is, [[ the GSC version's]] first few seconds tells you just two things: you're going against the original gym leaders, and SHIT. JUST. GOT. REAL.
* [[ The Main Kanto Route Theme]].
* Pallet Town once again. You have all 16 badges, [[ you're heading down Route 1]], and you know exactly what music is coming... [[ and it's still awesome]].
* The [[ Battle]] [[ Tower]] Music.

->Themes that debuted in ''[=FireRed=]'' and ''[=LeafGreen=]'' are in those games' folder.

The SNES-like audio for the GBA did wonders for the music of Pokémon, and the whole soundtrack doesn't disappoint. Plus, you can experience those [[MemeticMutation glorious trumpets]]!
* [[ Littleroot Town]].
* [[ Route 101]] is yet another great first-route tune.
* The [[ Wild Pokémon Battle]] theme.
* [[ Oldale Town, shared with Lavaridge Town]].
* The [[ Pokémon Center theme]], though it's not quite as good as the original, is still good in its own way.
* [[ Friendly Shop]], the Poké Mart theme. So awesome, it's appeared in every game since ''Emerald''.
* The rival theme, both for [[ Brendan]] and [[ May]].
* The [[ Rival Battle Theme]]. For the first time that the player's rival is friendly, this theme is both upbeat and epic at the same time!
* [[ Pokémon Trainer Battle]] theme.
* [[ Petalburg City]]. This link here is 7 minutes of upbeat pleasantry.
* [[ Route 104]] is a fantastic piece for the first beach you see in the game.
* The [[ Magma/Aqua Grunt Themes]] were the most awesome pieces in the game.
** [[ Team Magma Appears!]]
** [[ Team Aqua Appears!]]
* The [[ R/S/E Gym Leader Theme]]. It's perhaps one of the BEST battle themes the series has!
* The Gym Leader victory theme in every Pokémon game is super-happy, but [[ its Generation III rendition]] is probably the best of all of them; it actually makes you feel like you've accomplished something. Bask in your victory!
* [[ Crossing the Sea]]? No you aren't. You're going to sit on this boat for the next HOUR and listen to this incredibly awesome track loop over and over and over again.
* [[ Slateport City]]. One of the best town themes from the series.
* [[ The Oceanic Museum]], a remix of the S.S. Anne theme from the first generation.
* As with all other route themes, [[ Route 110]].
* The [[ Trick House]] theme, and the [[ vocal version]].
* [[ Mauville Game Corner]].
* The [[ Cycling theme]] is so unbelievably happy and fast paced.
* [[ Verdanturf Town]]. One of the most beautiful tracks in R/S/E, which is saying a lot.
* [[ Route 113]] from R/S/E, an utterly amazing track reminiscent of "Snowman" from ''VideoGame/{{Mother}}''.
* The music that plays while in [[ Meteor Falls]] (and the Cave of Origin) is just awesome to listen to.
* [[ The Mt. Chimney/Sky Pillar music]].
* [[ Route 111.]] Almost made the endless sandstorm damage in battle worth it.
* One kickass [[ Surf theme]] coming right up. Made the massive amounts of surfing required in the game quite tolerable for some people.
* The [[ Abandoned Ship]] had some great music. Sad, considering the place was never really plot-important.
* [[ Route 119]]. Can't take your bike through the tall grass, which people also happen to be hiding in. Not to mention that it's usually raining - and don't bother with an umbrella, lest you get ''struck by lightning.'' You're earning your way through this route.
* [[ Route 120, one of the most epic route themes in the series.]]
* The [[ Mt.Pyre/Shoal Cave/New Mauville theme]]. A tune which provides just the right mix of ambience and adventure to suit its locations, and is criminally underestimated when people talk about the best music of the series.
* [[ Mt. Pyre (Peak)]]
* [[ Lilycove City/Pacifidlog Town]].
* The theme of the [[ Art Museum]] in Lilycove City is one classy tune.
* The [[ Team Magma/Aqua Hideout theme]] is much more "stealthy" than the Rocket Hideout themes from before.
* The [[ Diving theme]].
* [[ The Sealed Chamber]]. A tranquil song that evokes the mystery and echoes the power of the Legendary Golems of long ago.
* [[ Regirock, Regice, and Registeel's battle theme]].
* The [[ Archie and Maxie]] Battles are under-appreciated.
* [[ Heavy Rain]] is excellent for the situation, tense and ominous.
* [[ The Drought]] puts [[MemeticMutation Lavender Town]] to shame.
* [[ Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza's battle theme]]. Those first five seconds tell you SHIT IS GOING DOWN.
* [[ Sootopolis City]]. It may be calmed and relaxing, but this song does tell you that you're in a legendary town. In the middle of a volcano.
* The theme in [[ Ever Grande City]] is a good piece to hear, especially after going though Victory Road.
* [[ Victory Road]] from ''Ruby/Sapphire'' is worth a listen.
* Everyone volunteer their love for the [[ R/S/E Elite Four theme]]
* The Champion's [[ battle theme]], [[ encounter theme]], and [[ victory theme]] all qualify as awesome tracks.
* Even the [[ "Room of Glory"]] music is incredible... sadly, as always, [[LongSongShortScene it only plays when Steven Stone/Wallace is recording the player's League-triumphing feat in the Hall of Fame Room.]]
* All of the ending themes have a triumphant note to them, but [[ Hoenn's Ending]] is a complete TearJerker.
* [[ The Battle Frontier theme]] from ''Emerald'', particularly the opening few notes. The whole thing just screams "triumphant."
* The individual battle facilities in the Battle Frontier all have their own themes, some of which stray from the rest of the soundtrack, and all of which fit in well with their respective motifs.
** [[ Battle Factory's]] is very techno-y.
** [[ Battle Arena's]] has a medieval Japan feel to it.
** [[ The Battle Dome's]] gets you fired up to WIN.
** [[ Battle Pike's]] is more seedy, more antsy. Fitting for trying your luck in a huge Seviper, hoping that darn Kirlia won't jump you and poison somebody on your team.
** [[ Battle Palace.]]
** Between the Egyptian and ancient temple themes, [[ Battle Pyramid's]] definitely says "Pyramid adventure".
** The [[ Battle Tower theme]], a slower version of [[ the Battle Tower theme from Ruby/Sapphire]].
* [[ The Frontier Brain battle theme]] is no slouch either.
* There's a [[ remix]] of ''Crystal'''s Raikou/Entei/Suicune theme hidden in the data of the games.
* Another hidden theme: [[ Johto's Route 38/39 theme]].
* More hidden themes: [[ Pokémon Communication Center]], [[ Viridian City]], [[ Team Rocket Radio Tower Takeover]], and the beta version of [[ Littleroot Town]].

* [[ Pallet Town.]]
* [[ The Rival's encounter theme]].
* [[ Route 1.]]
* [[ The Pokémon Center theme]].
* [[ The Trainer battle theme]].
* [[ Viridian Forest.]]
* [[ The Gym Leader battle theme]].
* [[ Cerulean City.]]
* [[ Welcome to the World of Pokémon]], which is also the Route 24/25 theme.
* [[ The main Route theme.]] Uplifting and great for adventure.
* [[ Vermillion City]].
* [[ The S.S. Anne music]].
* [[ The Bike theme]].
* [[ Route 11.]]
* [[ Lavender Town]].
* If anything, Pokémon Tower's [[ even scarier]] in ''FR/LG''.
* [[ Celadon City.]]
* [[ Team Rocket's Hideout.]]
* [[ The Surf theme]].
* [[ Silph Co.]]
* [[ Cinnabar Island]], one of the best non-battle themes in the game.
* [[ Power Plant/Pokémon Mansion]].
* The Sevii Islands bring us some fantastic remixes of music from ''Gold and Silver''. [[ Four and Five Island]] use Azalea Town's theme, [[ Six and Seven Island]] have Violet City's, and the [[ other areas]] feature a stunning rendition of Route 42/Lake of Rage.
* [[ Indigo Plateau.]]
* [[ The Champion theme]].
* [[ The FireRed/LeafGreen end credits]] is even better than the original, containing nods to the Team Rocket, Pokémon Center and Pallet Town themes.
* The [[ Deoxys theme]], which is also in ''Emerald''.

* [[ Route 201]] just gets stuck in budding Pokémon Trainers' heads.
* The [[ Rival battle theme.]]
* [[ Sandgem Town]].
* The [[ daytime Pokémon Center theme]]. [[ And at night]].
* [[ The Trainer Battle music]] is a real EarWorm, in a good way.
* [[ Jubilife City at night]].
* On the subject of Platinum: [[ Looker's theme]] is pretty awesome.
* [[ Oreburgh City]].
* The [[ Gym Leader battle theme.]]
* The [[ Team Galactic Battle Theme]]. Not only was it epic, so was its [[ Admin variant]].
* [[ Route 205]] is a great and upbeat theme. Sets the mood for adventure.
* [[ Eterna Forest.]]
* The [[ Bicycle Theme]].
* [[ Hearthome City.]]
* [[ Route 209]] is also a lovely theme.
* [[ Route 210.]]
* [[ Veilstone City]].
* [[ Game Corner.]]
* The encounter themes are usually sped through after three seconds or so (barring Cynthia) but if you listen to them they're often extremely good. For example, the [[ Fisherman/Sailor]] theme.
* [[ Canalave City]]. Nice, relaxing, and it's basically a slowed-up version of the credits music from Pokémon Gold/Silver/Crystal!
* [[ Route 216.]]
* [[ Mt.Coronet.]]
* The [[ Spear Pillar theme.]]
* The [[ Dialga/Palkia battle theme.]]
* The music for [[ battle with Team Galactic leader Cyrus]] might be even better than that of his subordinates.
* [[ The Distortion World's background music]]. The perfect blend of unnerving, surprisingly peaceful, and awesome.
* [[ Platinum Giratina]], which is both bombastic and utterly chaotic, fitting given Giratina's nature.
* [[ The Acuity/Valor/Verity Lakefront theme.]]
* [[ Cavern In The Lake]]. This plays in the areas you find the Lake Trio. It's a slower version of their battle theme and serves as great buildup.
* The [[ "lake trio" battle theme.]]
* [[ Sunyshore City.]]
* The [[ music that plays outside of the Pokémon League]] as well as its [[ more soft nighttime equivalent]] are both beautiful pieces that perfectly capture the feeling of having traveled so far and grown so much. It really makes you feel proud of you and your Pokémon.
* [[ Pokémon League Building.]]
* The [[ Elite 4 battle theme.]]
* [[ Challenging Cynthia]]. Given how she's got possibly the best temperament out of all the Champions (Steven Stone in ''Ruby/Sapphire'' a close second), the sheer difficulty in fighting her (with mostly exhausted Pokémon, mind you) and the ''what-do-I-do-what-do-I-do-what-do-I-do-what-do-I-do?!'' feel of the music makes for one epic Championship battle.
** [[ "battle gene M"]] is a song performed by MTM, a group consisting of Junichi Masuda on keyboards, Shinji Miyazaki on bass, and Hirokazu Tanaka on drums. This song is based off of Cynthia's battle theme, as noted in a [[ blog posting by Junichi Masuda]]. More information can be found in [[ this article]].
** The music from [[ before the fight]] is also epic.
* Do ''Diamond and Pearl'' have the best ending themes? Ehh, well, [[ judge for yourself]].
* [[ The theme for the other legendary Pokémon battles.]]
* The Legendary Pokémon theme. [[ Backwards.]]
* The [[ Regis' theme]] gets an upgrade in ''Platinum''.
* [[ Route 225]] is an epic way to kick off a post-Elite Four adventure. [[ Route 225 at night]] sounds even better than it does during the day!
* Route 228. A jazzy theme that wouldn't be out of place at the Game Corner to liven up your desert route. [[ Listen to it.]] [[ Love it.]]
* [[ Stark Mountain.]]
* If you get an audio system for your villa in Platinum, it plays [[ this bossa nova version of the Lilycove City theme from ''Ruby/Sapphire'']].
* [[ Battle Tower]]
* The Battle Frontier in ''Platinum'' brings an array of awesome tunes: [[ The main theme]] (a lively variant of the Fight Area theme from '''Diamond/Pearl''), [[ Battle Arcade]], [[ Battle Hall]], [[ Battle Factory]], and [[ Battle Castle]].
* The [[ Platinum Frontier Brain theme.]]
* [[ Platinum's Global Trade Station theme]]; the electrifying tune somehow gives a sense of the wonder of trading Pokémon all over the world.
* The Wi-Fi Plaza from ''Platinum'' had a trio of happy themes:
** [[ The main theme]] is very celebratory, as if to say "Look--20 people in one room! Let's party!".
** [[ The minigame theme]] is short, but it goes well with balancing a Mime Jr. on a ball, or tossing berries into a rotating Swalot's mouth.
** And then [[ the parade theme]] sends you off. "Thanks for coming!"
* [[ Arceus' theme]] is unlike any other music in the game. Unfortunately, [[DummiedOut it only plays if you hack an unreleased event item]]. Suitable, considering that you're fighting ''God''.
* Hidden in the data of the games, there is a remix of the [[ Main Theme of R/S/E]].

* [[ Professor Elm's Lab]]
* [[ Route 29]]
* The [[ Johto Wild Pokémon Theme]].
* The [[ Pokémon Center Theme]].
* [[ Poké Mart]], and the [[ GB Sounds Version]].
* The [[ Rival Trainer Music]] (and [[ his leitmotif]]).
* The [[ Johto Trainer Battle Theme]]. Holy CRAP!
* [[ The music that plays inside the Pokémon Gyms]].
* The [[ Johto Gym Leader Theme]].
* [[ Azalea Town/Blackthorn City]]
* [[ Team Rocket's Theme]].
* [[ Team Rocket Battle Theme.]]
* [[ Goldenrod City]].
* [[ The Bicycle Theme]]. The song gets a beautiful remix.
* [[ The Game Corner]]
* The [[ National Park Theme]]. The piano... It helps that you [[ see]] [[ one]] [[ of]] [[ these]] every time you enter.
* [[ The Bug Catching Contest Music]].
* [[ Cianwood City]] and [[ Ecruteak City]] have different but beautiful variations on the Game Boy Color original (originally the same track).
* [[ Eusine's Leitmotif]].
* The [[ Surf Theme]].
* [[ The Route 38/39 Music]].
* [[ Lighthouse/Mt. Silver]].
* [[ Route 47/48]], and the [[ GB Sounds Version]].
* [[ Safari Zone Gate]], and the [[ GB Sounds Version]].
* [[ Safari Zone]], and the [[ GB Sounds Version]].
* [[ The Route 42/43/44 and Lake of Rage Music]].
* [[ Team Rocket's Hideout]]
* [[ Claire's Leitmotif]].
* [[ Dragon's Den]]. The remake is even better than the original.
* [[ Dark Cave]].
* The legendary beasts ([[ Suicune]], [[ Entei]] and [[ Raikou]]) each have great themes in their own right, but, [[ when you combine them into one...]]
* [[ The Bell Tower]].
* The [[ Summoning Theme]] for Ho-Oh and Lugia (Dance of the Sacred Beasts).
* [[ Ho-Oh]] and [[ Lugia's]] arrival themes perfectly capture the awe and wonder of summoning and encountering the two most powerful of Johto's living myths.
* The [[ Ho-Oh Battle Theme]].
* The [[ Lugia Battle Theme]].
* [[ Route 26 and 27]].
* [[ Victory Road and Mount Silver]].
* [[ Indigo Plateau/Pokémon League]]
* [[ The Battles with Lance and Red]]. An incredible remix that took the most epic song in the entire series and some how made even MORE EPIC. A song that is simply ''outstanding''.
* [[ The Hall of Fame Music]].
* The [[ Ending Credits Remix]] does the original great justice, though [[ this]] version of it a bit better.
* [[ The S.S. Aqua]]
* [[ Vermilion City]].
* ''HG/SS'' has an [[ incredible remix]] of the original wild Pokémon theme in Kanto. Encountering wild Pidgey will never be the same again...
* [[ The Kanto Trainer Battle Theme]]. ''[=HeartGold=]'' and ''[=SoulSilver=]'''s version combines the ''G/S/C'' mix with the ''FR/LG'' one.
* [[ The Kanto Gym Leader Battle Theme]].
* [[ Lavender Town]], which starts out creepy, then segues into a calm, peaceful remix. As a Youtube comment said, "This is the antidote for Lavender Town Syndrome."
* The music that plays in Cerulean City. Let's face it; [[ this is awesome]].
* Despite the original Route 24 and 25 music not appearing in ''Gold'' or ''Silver'', the DS remakes have their own version, [[ and it's something else]].
* [[ Celadon City]]
* [[ Route 11]]
* [[ Viridian Forest]].
* [[ The Main Kanto Route Theme]].
* [[ Route 1]]
* [[ Pallet Town]]. Possibly the most peaceful theme in the series so far, it truly makes you feel as if the music itself was telling you "Welcome home".
* The [[TearJerker very sad]] [[ Cinnabar Island Theme]], and the [[ GB Sounds Version]].
* The [[ Battle Frontier theme]], an awesome remix of the Battle Tower Theme from ''Crystal''. [[ Inside the Battle Tower]].
* [[ Global Terminal]], and the [[ GB Sounds Version]].
* [[ Kyogre/Groudon/Rayquaza's Theme.]]
* [[ Sinjoh Ruins!]] Otherwise known as ''[=HGSS=]''[='s=] remix of the top of Mt. Coronet from ''[=DPPt=]''. Missed out on Arceus' theme in DPP? Good news; [[ it plays during this event!]]
* [[ The Pokéwalker theme]], an unexpected but welcome remix of the Printer error theme from ''Yellow'' and the originals.

[[folder: ''Black''/''White'']]
* [[ The music played during the intro movie.]] Chilling and epic, especially for the crowning of the king of Team Plasma.
* [[ The Rival Battle Theme.]] Quirky and catchy.
* In the old days, low HP would be met by [[MostAnnoyingSound an annoying siren sound]]. Now it's been replaced with [[ this.]]
* [[ Professor Juniper's theme.]]
* [[ Accumula Town]] sounds extremely great, but it gets even better when you talk to [[ the drummer and the pianist]].
* Everything about N is awesome, including his personal {{Leitmotif}}, [[ N's Theme]] which is both haunting and childish... perfect for him.
* The music played during [[ your battles against N]] throughout Unova.
* The [[ Pokémon Center Theme]].
* The [[ Normal Trainer Battle]] is ''epic''. Not only that but it's [[EarWorm surprisingly catchy]].
** The [[ remix]] that plays in the Battle Subway, for techno fans.
** Here's both of them [[ together.]]
* [[ Cheren's Encounter Theme]] isn't bad either.
* The [[ Gym Battle music]]. It starts out fast-paced and epic from the very beginning. Many consider the music that plays when you reach the Gym Leader's last Pokémon (listed under "Pokémon title theme" at the top of the page) to be even better.
* [[ Route 2]] gives a true feeling of childlike wonder like few other pieces in the games.
* [[ The Team Plasma Grunt battle theme]]. Say it with me: ''PLASMAAAAA!!! ''
* The [[ wild rare/double battle theme]]. Comes out of nowhere, but still awesome.
* [[ Skyarrow Bridge.]] Words can't do it justice.
* [[ Castelia City]]. Welcome to the big city!
* [[ Relic Castle]] has some amazing, soothing music that reminds you of VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon.
* [[ Nimbasa City]] has the most epic city theme ever.
* [[ Emotion]]. And [[ Bottled Emotions]], an awesome dubstep remix of Emotion.
* [[ Gear Station]]
* [[ Anville Town]]
* The [[ "Carnival Pokémon" Musical]] is an awesome remix of the original Pokémon Center Theme.
* [[ Alder's Theme]] may sound out of place in a Pokémon game, but is still very catchy and enjoyable, and it fits his character well.
* [[ Driftveil City]] is pretty awesome as well.
* [[ Route 6]] has some pretty awesome music.
* [[ Mistralton City!]]
* The [[ Surfing Theme]], which reminds many players of ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}''.
* [[ Legendary Battle Theme]]. The song is such a mess that as soon as a melody is found it throws you a curveball. This really puts into perspective just how powerful the Legendaries really are.
* [[ Icirrus City]] has a peaceful and cheerful melody that can't help but make you smile.
* [[ Dragonspiral Tower/Giant Chasm]] is a beautiful piano piece that sounds like someone crossed the Light World dungeon theme from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' with the present-day overworld theme and the forest theme from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger''.
* [[ Tubeline Bridge.]] Short yet catchy, this is an incredibly upbeat tune. Sadly, it's [[OvershadowedByAwesome often overlooked in favor of songs such as Skyarrow Bridge or Opelucid City.]]
* The ''Pokémon White'' rendition of [[ Opelucid City]] and its ''Black'' [[ counterpart]] may sound nothing alike (with an exception), but both are awesome in their own way. In particular, the White version becomes even better when you stand by a girl playing an erhu, giving it a very Classical or even Celtic vibe, and standing next to the keytar player in ''Black'' fixes the lack of resemblance to White's by adding electronic versions of notes from ''White'''s music to the music.
** The one in Black is also reminiscent of music from early ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' games.
** When opposites [[ attract]].
* On the subject of ''Mother 3'', we have [[ Route 10]]. You half expect to bump into Boney.
* [[ Victory Road]] is pretty much finality and epicness distilled into musical form.
* The [[ Pokémon League]] theme when you're in the Pokémon Center or waiting to challenge one of the E4 members. Doesn't have that much, but that's what makes it cooler.
* The [[ Elite Four Battle Theme]]. As one Website/{{Youtube}} commenter said: "The bass and drums [in] this song is enough to make your Pokémon faint."
* [[ N's Castle Bridge/Carrying Out a Mission]]. Very reminiscent of ''Pokémon Mystery Dungeon''[='=]s music.
* [[ N's Castle]] itself is somewhat reminiscent of ''Castlevania'' music.
* The music in [[ N’s childhood room]] – a slow, creepy music-box tune.
* The battle themes for [[ Reshiram / Zekrom]] / [[ Kyurem]].
* [[ Final N battle.]]
** [[ The remix of N's final battle.]] The badass level just shot through the roof.
* [[ Enter Ghetsis]], attacking his son with the most abusive words you are likely to hear in a Pokémon game, shortly before he attacks ''you'' with a Hydreigon.
* [[ Ghetsis Battle Theme]]. '''[[OminousLatinChanting DEN]][[{{Mondegreen}} NIS!]]'''
* Speaking of ''Mother 3'', [[ N's Farewell]] takes its first five notes from the ''Mother 3'' Love Theme. And then there's the [[ amazing official remix.]] [[TearJerker It brought tears to many a person's eyes.]]
* This [[ hauntingly beautiful remix]] of N's Farewell.
** [[ This remastering]] is great too.
** Even better, [[ Using the Soundfont]] from ''VideoGame/MOTHER3'' for the song. It's as beautiful and as [[TearJerker Heartrending]] as it sounds.
* [[ To Each Future]]. While other credits themes tend to be more subdued, ''Black'' and ''White''[='=]s is amazing and upbeat, giving the impression of a sequel that [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 eventually became a reality]].
* [[ Looker's Theme]] gets an upgrade, and almost doubled in length.
* [[ Marvelous Bridge]]. Truly marvelous. And also a bridge!
* [[ Encounter! Gentleman!]] is an EarWorm.
* [[ Black City]], and its counterpart, [[ White Forest]]. The former is a haunting techno melody that seems to emphasize just how much the city is corrupted (heck, a few openly admit to being greedy), while the latter is a happy, upbeat tune with a cheerful innocence to it--perfect for a nature-filled forest. Certainly a harsh contrast, much like the opposing themes for Opelucid City.
* [[ Route 11]] has music that is very fitting for a postgame adventure.
* [[ Undella Town's]] spring/autumn/winter music.
* [[ Cynthia Battle]], a good contender for "best Pokémon theme to make the player say 'OhCrap'".
* [[ The Diving/Abyssal Ruins Theme]]: calm, mysterious, and soothing.
* [[ Lacunosa Town]] is nice and soothing.
* The [[ Village Bridge.]] Starts out simple when you enter the area, but adds layers to the song when you talk to certain people scattered throughout the area.
* [[ The Champion/Subway Boss Battle]] music is upbeat, triumphant, and a ''major'' EarWorm.
* [[ Battle! Kanto Champion]], used in the finals of the Pokémon World Championships, is a remix of... guess.

* The background theme for the [[ EntraLink]]. Sounds more like an epic background theme from ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' than one would necessarily expect.
* [[ Global Terminal]]
* The Mystery Gift Theme from ''Platinum'' [[ got an awesome remix]].
* The [[ Unity Tower Theme]] is well-suited for a place where people of all nations come together.

[[folder:''Black 2''/''White 2'']]
* [[ Team Plasma, Again]] which in the beginning of the game even temporarily replaces the normal overworld music. The beat in the beginning makes it perfectly clear: Team Plasma means business.
* [[ Aspertia City]].
* Hugh's [[ Encounter]] and [[ Battle]] theme are both exceptional pieces of music, even having a touch of Ken's [[BootstrappedTheme bootstrapped stage theme]] from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII''.
* [[ Route 19]]
* [[ Floccesy Town]], with calliope and bells working together to make a soothing melody.
* [[ Floccesy Ranch]] – a very bouncy, entertainingly goofy-sounding tune.
* [[ Revamp of the Unova Gym Battle.]]
* [[ Virbank City]].
* Black 2 and White 2 have given the Gyms their own variations of the traditional Gym theme (save for Cheren's Gym in Aspertia City, which gets the standard theme carried over from the original Black and White), and that manages to make running through each Gym battling its Trainers and Leader all the more exciting. Here's Virbank Gym's take on the theme. [[ DOGARS!]]
* [[ Brycen-Man / Full Metal Cop theme]] in Pokéstar Studios.
* [[ Team Plasma's aggressive and relentless battle theme]]. It really shows how much Team Plasma has diverged.
* [[ Castelia Gym's Theme]] is quite ambient for a Gym theme, but it does the original justice.
* [[ Nimbasa Gym's Theme]] is pretty awesome as well, carrying a fashion-show theme to fit its supermodel Gym Leader, especially when Elesa herself makes her ridiculously awesome entrance - at which point, the traditional Gym tune kicks in, only with part of the same soundfont heard in [[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou "Dancer In The Street"]][[note]] (Heard when fighting Pig Noise.)[[/note]] thrown in as a ShoutOut for good measure.
* [[ Driftveil Gym's theme]] has a distinct "underground" sound to it and fits the setting quite well.
* [[ Pokémon World Tournament]]
* ''Pokémon World Tournament'' features lots of older characters, and remixes a bunch of themes for that!
** [[ The Kanto Gym Leader battle theme.]]
** [[ Vs. Blue.]]
** [[ The Johto Gym Leader battle theme.]]
** [[ Welcome back, Red (and Lance).]]
** [[ Hoenn Gym Leader Battle.]]
** [[ Hoenn Champion Battle.]]
** [[ Sinnoh Gym Leader Battle.]]
** [[ Sinnoh Champion Battle.]]
** The [[ Tournament Final Round theme]] sounds like something out of ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''.
* [[ The theme of Mistralton Gym]] manages to sound both triumphant and whimsical, befitting the setup of the Gym as well as Gym Leader Skyla herself.
* [[ Lentimas Town]], with a very Latin feel to it.
* Both themes for Reversal Mountain, from [[ Black 2]] and [[ White 2]] are quite enthralling in their own ways.
* [[ The theme of Opelucid Gym]]. The fact that you get to ride a mechanical dragon to the top of the other dragon where Drayden awaits, battling Trainers along the way, makes this particular piece of music all the more awesome.
* Not only are the Shadow Triad promoted from being TheUnfought, but they also have a pretty great [[ encounter theme]].
* [[ Marine Tube]].
* [[ Humilau City]], with a tropical feel to fit the city’s sunny beach-side location.
* [[ Humilau Gym's theme]] is about as calm as Castelia Gym's, being akin to elevator music, and is a great contrast to Opelucid Gym's grand variation of the regular Gym theme, but that doesn't mean it's not good music at all.
* Routes 21 and 22 ([[ summer]], [[ fall]], [[ winter]] and [[ spring]]). Very happy tracks that are also quite reminiscent of RSE's music.
* [[ The BGM]] which plays in the first part of the Plasma Frigate is a remix of the classic Plasma theme in the same vein of the Airship Theme from Mario. ''And it's awesome''.
* The [[ Plasma Frigate Bridge]] BGM, on that note. Very reminiscent of Pokémon Ranger's music.
* [[ Colress' upbeat]] [[ techno/electronica themes]].
* [[ Black Kyurem / White Kyurem]]. A dark, menacing theme for a suped-up legendary that ain't going gently. Also, no Master Ball for you.
* N's new [[ Leitmotif]] starts off with the same creepy tune as his old one. Seventeen seconds in, it goes for a BaitAndSwitch and becomes much more joyful sounding, probably to emphasize his character development.
* [[ Ghetsis' Theme]] gives off the vibe of [[VillainousBreakdown just what he's going through.]] Now with more [[{{Mondegreen}} DENNIS!]]
* [[ Route 23]]. A very fitting pre-Pokémon League theme, and it even features a ShoutOut to the theme in Professor Rowan's laboratory at the very beginning of Diamond, Pearl and Platinum.
* [[ Iris' Battle Theme]] is so made of ridiculously awesome, it's not even funny, with a high-energy cheerfulness to it that matches [[GenkiGirl Iris]] perfectly.
* [[ The ending theme]], a wonderful song that concludes a wonderful adventure.
* [[ The Uxie/Mesprit/Azelf Battle Theme]] makes a comeback.
* Black 2/White 2's take on the [[ Regi Trio's Battle Theme]]. And it's more badass than ever! Bonus points for using it when catching Regigigas.
* [[ The Gen 4 Legendary Theme]] makes a comeback, but only for Heatran. Still no less awesome though.
* [[ White Treehollow Challenge]] is a beautiful theme, which may make you forget you're in [[BonusDungeon Unova's Challenge.]]
* The already creepy music in N's Room [[ gets even creepier]] as the castle falls into disrepair.
* [[ N's battle theme]], a remixed version of his regular battle theme from Black and White.

[[folder: ''X''/''Y'']]
* The [[ music]] that plays during the CharacterCustomization screen is well worth [[spoiler:playing through the entire game]] to hear again. [[ Sycamore's Lab]] uses the same melody, and is almost as good.
* While you're likely to only hear about 7 seconds of it because the path is ''so'' short, the [[ Route 1 music]] is a great way to start your journey.
* The [[ Rival Encounter Theme]], which plays whenever your friends show up. It's just so ridiculously upbeat, you can't help but smile. It definitely helps sell the friendship that forms between the five of you.
* [[ Rival Battle Theme]] is all of the above, except fiercer and more competitive.
* [[ Trainer Battle Theme]]. Starts out a bit friendly, but gets that "fierce" feeling within the middle of the song.
* This [[ piece]] of adorable music will give you the strangest urge to skip around merrily on Route 2.
* [[ Encounter! Youngster]] and [[ Encounter! Lass]] all fit the relatively easy mood for the first few Trainers in the beginning of the game.
* [[ The Santalune City theme]] really gets you pumped up for your first gym battle.
* When you face the new Gym Leaders in their awesome, unorthodox gyms, [[ their theme]] is appropriately awe-inspiring. Heck, even the electronic instruments turn the volume UpToEleven.
* [[ Encounter! Poké Fan]] does suit the cheerfulness of the Poké Fans.
* [[ The Gate music]], which you would probably hear for about five seconds as you're passing by, is spectacularly tranquil and almost seems perfect to accompany a session of Pokémon-Amie.
* [[ Sina and Dexio]], a friendly and cheerful theme for Sycamore’s friendly and cheerful assistants.
* [[ Professor Sycamore's theme]], which has a very French vibe.
* [[ Super Training]] and [[ Secret Super Training]]. Both tracks wouldn't sound out of place in medieval fantasy [=JRPGs=].
* [[ Encounter! Twins]]
* [[ Encounter! Tourist]]
* [[ Encounter! Butler]]. Fits the rich Trainers of the Battle Chateau pretty well.
* [[ Encounter! Maid]]. There's actually the sound of plates and other utensils being moved in the background as a nice touch.
* [[ Route 8's Theme]] consists of an orchestra so grandiose it would make ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' proud.
* [[ Encounter! Female Swimmer]] is such a big EarWorm.
* [[ Team Flare Appears!]] Slow and sinister. Just like how they just walk up to you and threaten you for interfering in your plans.
* [[ Encounter! Team Flare]]. Another encounter theme for them, this one is more them actively trying to take you out.
* [[ Team Flare Grunt Battle]]. Much more fast-paced and menacing version of the two encounter themes. This is where Team Flare intends to burn you for meddling in their goals.
* [[ Bicycle]]. Who else rode the bike up and down one route, just for that glorious music?
* [[ The Geosenge Town Theme.]] Very peaceful, making the whole town feel like relaxation.
* [[ Shalour City's Theme]] gives an oriental, ancient vibe to Korrina's hometown.
* The Gym Leader theme gets a [[ remix]] when you battle Korrina for the last storyline-required time, with her facing you not as a Gym Leader but rather as [[spoiler: Successor to the secret of Mega Evolution. It is the first storyline battle to showcase Mega Evolution (with you being given a Mega-capable Lucario to use as well) and the music is appropriately epic.]] Unfortunately, some players might not hear it the whole way through due to it being a [[LongSongShortScene 1-on-1 battle that will likely be over on the second turn if you're playing it smartly.]] Fortunately, after completing the main scenario, it becomes one of your options for the music playing on your end in a PvP match.
** Mashups, such as [[ this one]] of the Kalos Gym leader's battle theme and the Successor's battle theme, have also proven to be really popular.
* [[ Riding Skiddo]], a great theme to hear while riding those Pokémon.
* [[ Coumarine City's theme]]. Smooth, jazzy, and absolutely perfect for the beautiful port city.
* [[ The Kalos Power Plant theme.]] Mysterious, spooky, and apprehensive, perfect for the Power Plant and Poké Ball Factory.
* Hark! Who is that pair of unknown masked heroes?! Why, it’s the [[ Mysterious Figures]]! [[spoiler:Well okay, it’s Sycamore’s assistants Sina and Dexio in [[PaperThinDisguise Paper-Thin Disguises]], but let’s play along to keep them happy.]]
* [[ Laverre City's theme]], with its fairy tale setting, is a beautiful and romantic song. This song is even reused later in the anime during an emotional moment between Ash and Serena ([=XY007=]).
* [[ Route 15's Theme]], which sounds incredibly grand and epic for "just another route theme". Even more epic when considering the point you listen to this theme. One has probably received about 6 badges at this point, and it is the theme that reminds you that your journey is far but not over.
* [[ Anistar City's theme]]. Calm, mystical and melancholic--perfect for a city with the penultimate Psychic Type gym, as if it urges you to reflect on your journey thus far, renewing your determination for the grand finale.
* [[ An Eternal Prison]]: [[spoiler:[[TearJerker "He was given a tiny box."]]]]
* The grandiose synth & organ theme used for the [[ battle against Xerneas/Yvetal]] ([[AndZoidberg and Zygarde]]).
* The theme for [[ the battles against Lysandre]], head of Team Flare, is an epic, gravitas-filled remix of the Team Flare Grunt theme.
* [[ The theme of Route 18/19/21.]] A beautiful track that fits very appropriately after saving the world from Team Flare and knowing everyone is still living happily - it is almost impossible to ''not'' be cheered up by this one.
* Another potential TearJerker in [[ Snowbelle City's theme]].
* [[ The Pokémon Village theme.]] Very quirky, and very [[VideoGame/{{Earthbound}} Saturn Valley-esque]].
* [[ Victory Road]]. A perfect track for making you want to step forth and charge into battle.
* [[ The Pokémon League theme]] does not disappoint in the "grandiose" department, setting the mood perfectly for the very final stretch of this journey you have just gone through.
* [[ The Elite Four Theme]] can totally get you pumped!
* [[ The Champion's Theme]] is basically taking a beautiful painting or a stained glass window, and putting it in music form.
* [[ The Hall of Fame Theme]] is grander than ever with a triumphant orchestra playing as the camera pans around you and the team you just dethroned the Champion with.
* [[ The Sun Shines Down]], [[spoiler: [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments where AZ reunites with his Floette after so long in the ending.]]]]
* [[ Kiseki]], the second ending credits theme. [[AwardBaitSong There are even lyrics to it.]] If you're feeling perky, you can turn a TearJerker into a SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}} by singing [[ these]] JustForFun/PokemonVietnameseCrystal styled [[IntentionalEngrishForFunny Engrish]] lyrics to the song.
* To accompany [[spoiler: Looker]]'s return, his theme was given [[ a massive upgrade]]. There's also [[ a tear jerking version in a minor key]], which is played at certain key moments in his sidequest.
* [[ Emma's theme]], a beautiful piano and violin piece which describes her character arc perfectly in musical form. It's incredibly short, only about 35 seconds before looping to the start, but the amount of emotion packed into those 35 seconds is incredible. It accompanies [[spoiler: the absolutely heartbreaking yet heartwarming ending to the Looker sidequest]] perfectly.
* For the fights to capture Mewtwo and the Legendary Bird Trio, we get [[ a fast-paced electronic-sounding theme]]... which samples the original Wild Pokémon battle theme from the Red and Blue versions!
* [[ Emotions]] make a glorious return from Black/White. It's only played in one place, akin to Route 10's music in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'', but still. Can also cause TearJerker side-effects too if you're 'emotional'. [[ This piano rendition of Jubilife City]] can be heard in a similar way.
* The [[ Kanto Champion remix]] [[LongSongShortScene may play only during VGC Championships]] (Generation V games happen to have one, as well), but it's so damn '''[[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome glorious]]'''.
* So it's your birthday and you happen to go into a Pokemon Center to heal your team up! Here's is the [[ music that plays instead of the normal PokeCenter music, befittingly called 'Happy Birthday']]. Not only are you met with dimmed lights, but little Pikachu stickers fall down your screen and the display behind Nurse Joy shows a birthday cake.

[[folder:''Omega Ruby''/''Alpha Sapphire'']]
* The glorious trumpets have returned for [[ The Title Screen]], which will fill you with a surge of epicness, sense of adventure and nostalgia. Even the players who haven't played the original games will tear up just a bit before the end.
* The [[ Wild Pokémon Battle]] theme gets an energetic remix.
* The [[ Oldale / Lavaridge town]] theme has gotten even more soothing and heartwarming now.
* The [[ Trainer Battle]] theme gets updated with some string instruments.
* The [[ Rival]] [[ Encounter]] themes, which reflects their friendliness and closeness towards the player character.
* The [[ Rival Battle]] theme gets an awesome remix ''brimming'' with energy.
* Wally gets a [[ very upbeat version of his theme]] that is played at Mauville City and in Victory Road, the tune sounding sweet and innocent to match the kind but shy boy Wally starts out as.
* The best [[ villainous trainer victory theme]] so far can be heard here.
* The [[ Gym Leader Battle]] theme is MUCH better than the original version.
* [[ Slateport City]] manages to sound even better than the original; the beautiful bell-chimes are dang-near entrancing to listen to.
* Those who played Red and Blue years ago might shed a few tears when visiting the [[ Oceanic Museum]].
* To fit with the expanded presence and characterization of the villains, a couple of new encounter themes were added, which set the mood for a confrontation perfectly. The admins have [[ this]], while [[ the leaders]] get a [[InvertedTrope calmer remix of]] [[BossRemix their battle theme]].
* [[ Lisia's theme]] is absolutely upbeat and energetic. Quite a fitting song for Hoenn's biggest Contest star.
* [[ The encounter theme]] for Delinquents and Street Thugs is just plain epic.
* [[ The Bicycle Theme]] will accompany you through your journeys whether you're on an Acro Bike or a Mach Bike, in the middle of a forest or a desert, rain or shine.
* [[ Route 113]], like before, is a beautiful melody that plays as you stroll through the ash covered grass, but this time, it's accompanied by the lovely, down-to-earth strums of an acoustic guitar.
* Behold [[ Mt. Chimney]] and its funky rhythm guitar!
* [[ The desert]] is no slouch either, and is now even groovier.
* It may not be what most would call bombastic or epic, but [[ the Surfing theme]] is beautiful, equal parts "exploring" and "relaxing" with an aquatic-techno sound to it.
* [[ Abandoned Ship]] gets two wonderful remixes, the first for the Abandoned Ship’s remake counterpart “Sea Mauville”, and the second playing for [[ the Southern Island]].
* Another truly beautiful and relaxing theme is [[ Soaring Illusions]], which plays while Soaring at night; perfect for flying through a starlit sky on the back of a legendary Pokémon. [[ Soaring Dreams]], the daytime theme, is rather appropriate, too; really gives you the feeling of adventuring in the skies.
* [[ The Lilycove City theme]] is back and as beautiful as ever.
* [[ The Dive theme]] is incredibly relaxing and really makes you want to just stay underwater forever.
* [[ Encounter! Diver]] is likewise relaxing and almost ethereal; it's probably one of the series' best encounter themes.
* [[ Archie and Maxie's Battle]] theme initially sounds like a straight update of the original song with its menacing piano and trumpet, before suddenly '''dropping the bass''' and shifting into an intense song with multiple trumpets and electric guitar.
* The [[ Heavy Rain]] and [[ Drought]] themes make their triumphant return, sounding just as creepy as ever. To quote a couple Youtube commenters:
--> '''On "Drought":''' In the original Ruby I thought everything just got really bright and that Hoenn was only a bit hotter than normal. Now the fucking sky is on fire.
--> '''On "Heavy Rainfall":''' Sounds like a [[Anime/DragonBallZ DBZ]] stare down theme where the villain wastes 15 minutes of screen time just monologuing. I love it!
* The [[ remix of Groudon's, Kyogre's, and Rayquaza's battle theme]] certainly doesn't disappoint. Then there's the [[ remix Primal Groudon and Kyogre get]], which actually samples the theme from the original Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald.
* [[ Coexistence]], the song that plays [[spoiler:during the scene after Groudon/Kyogre is defeated/captured, where Team Magma and Team Aqua decide to overcome their differences and coexist peacefully.]] An excellent new addition to the remakes.
* The [[ Regi Trio's battle theme]] gets another intense remix that also samples the original theme in the beginning.
* [[ Victory Road]] has never sounded this epic, and you feel like a badass facing a seemingly insurmountable task, but being the badass you are, you just plough through relentlessly.
* Wally finally gets his own [[ Battle]] theme when you face him at the end of Victory Road, and it sounds like it came straight out of ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'', ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' or ''Franchise/{{Ys}}''. The best part is that the theme actually ''flows right into the battle!''
* [[ Ever Grande City]] is just beautiful. You feel like you're about to finish your journey soon, which is sad, but you're also thinking about all the possibilities lying in front of you, once you accomplish your goals.
* [[ Elite Four Battle]] sounds just as good, if not better, than the original.
* [[ The music]] that plays in the post-credits scene is a beautiful remix of the rival encounter theme that really captures the bond between the player character and the rival.
* Those who played Emerald may find that [[ the Sky Pillar music]] gives them an odd sense of deja vu. [[spoiler:And then it hits you - it's a remix of the same track that's played [[LongSongShortScene when Rayquaza comes down to quell Groudon and Kyogre's fight]].]]
* The many variations of [[ The Heirs to Eternity]] (Zinnia's Theme), including her [[ Battle theme]] and [[ The Lament of Falling Stars]], which plays [[spoiler:when she tells how she would look up to the sky to stop her tears from falling]].
* The Delta Episode's climax offers a fantastic update of [[ Deoxys' theme]].
* The [[ Emerald Frontier Brain theme]] returns in all its glory, now used as the theme of the four Battle Chatelaines.
* [[ Hoenn Medley]], the ending song which plays after your induction into the Hall of Fame. It's a beautiful combination of many familiar songs of the routes and cities you visited during your journey, and it also shows YOUR pokémon and key battles where you used them.

[[folder: ''Sun/Moon'']]
* [[ Welcome to the Alola Region]] takes the inspirational sound of previous introduction themes and adds in a Hawaiian sound that makes for one of the best intro themes in the series so far.
* [[ The Pokémon Center theme]] takes the original melody and adds nice tropical sounds to it.
* [[ Hau'oli City's day theme]] is a happy tune with banjo/ukulele sounds to it, while [[ the night theme]] is a smooth jazz piano version.
* [[ The Trainer Battle theme]] is an energetic theme with the tune at the beginning pulled straight out of ''Film/JurassicPark''.
* [[ Team Skull's encounter theme]], an insanely catchy hip-hop theme, complete with minor vocals! It gets two equally awesome battle remixes: [[ one for the battles against regular grunts]], and [[ one for Plumeria]]. Guzma has his own [[ battle]] and [[ encounter theme]], catchier and much more threatening than his Grunt's. One can hear a hint of Kanto's trainer music in those themes.
* [[ Gladion's battle theme]] is an amazing and catchy bass piece that pulls inspiration from the Unova and Sinnoh music styles and perfectly fits Gladion himself, with his [[ encounter theme]] being a calmer and softer version, but equally awesome and catchy.
* [[ Ten Carat Hill's theme]] is a mysterious sounding tune with piano sounds to it which gives the feeling of going on an adventure in the lush Alola region.
* [[ Nanu]] has a very chilled out smooth jazz theme that is not only awesome, but perfectly reflects his laid-back personality. It is worth noting that he is the only Island Kahuna that has his own unique theme, while Hala, Olivia, and Hapu share a theme.
* [[ The Victory Road theme]] of the game is a resounding triumphant piece, which fits the change of this game's Victory Road from a sprawling maze to a linear last stretch towards the League.
* [[ The Totem Pokemon theme]], an intimidating remix of the Wild Pokemon theme that does a good job of emphasizing the formidable nature of the foe you're facing.
* [[ The Tapu battle theme]], upbeat, powerful and also very catching, fitting for the Guardians of Alola.
* [[ This remix]] of [[spoiler:Red's battle theme]] is somewhat more laid-back than its predecessors, somewhat emphasizing the more hospitable environment Alola provides while mixing the intense nostalgia of the original two generations.
* [[ The Ultra Beasts' battle theme]], an intense and otherworldly electronic theme that fits these unknown, otherworldly threats perfectly.
* The [[ music]] that plays while [[spoiler:Lusamine]] lets the Ultra Beasts loose upon Alola sounds like a perfect alien invasion theme.
* [[ The battle music]] for the [[spoiler: Aether Foundation]] [[DarkReprise went 180]] to their [[ peaceful theme]], replacing violins and soft beats in favor of suspenseful piano and heavy beats. [[CrapsaccharineWorld Giving you a heads up that you're not in Paradise anymore...]]
* [[ The battle theme]] for [[spoiler: Aether President Lusamine]]. It is both a beautiful and menacing piece, which perfectly describes the opponent's [[FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon ambitions behind their pleasant exterior]]. Then there is their initial [[ encounter theme]] which brings to mind a soft lullaby, yet still sounds slightly off. Finally, the [[ remix]] used for the rematch completely removes any pretense of calm, when [[spoiler: Lusamine completely reveals her psychotic personality by fusing with the Ultra Beast Nihilego and becoming the Motherbeast]].
* [[ The battle theme for Solgaleo and Lunala]]. It starts out with what sounds like a quiet, fast paced, heartbeat, before erupting in an intense techno beat that perfectly captures the mood that while they are otherworldly, benign beings, they are still powerful Legendary Pokémon.
* [[ The Elite Four's battle theme]], a fast-paced and badass theme that shows how they're not pulling any punches anymore. It suits the DifficultySpike of this Gen's Elite Four compared to their Gen VI counterparts.
* [[ The Kahunas' battle theme]] starts with badass and intimidating drums, before transitioning into a much happier theme signifying that they may be the strongest Trainers in the island, but they're only here to test your strength in a friendly match, and you have the power to beat them.
* [[ The Battle Royal Dome theme]] is very reminiscent of "Gonna Fly Now" from ''{{Film/Rocky}}''.
* The Dome's [[ battle theme]] is an energetic theme that perfectly captures the atmosphere of a 4-player deathmatch arena.
* [[ The Champion's theme]] ('''major spoilers'''). It starts off awesomely with the first few bars of the series' main theme, then transitions into a badass and triumphant theme that perfectly exemplifies how [[spoiler:this time, YOU are the Champion; the tables have turned and you're the one who must defend your title from different challengers!]]
* The theme to the [[ Vast Poni Canyon]] starts solemn, then grows into a upbeat and overall very heroic theme to serenade you whilst you go through what some consider the hardest dungeon in the main storyline. Bonus points for having serious Route 10 vibes.
* [[ Malie City's theme]] has a very Japanese feel, fitting for a city founded and influenced by people from Johto. Its [[ night theme]] almost sounds like something out of VideoGame/{{Okami}}.
* [[ Hau's battle theme]] is as cheerful and energetic as the boy who aims to be stronger than Kahuna Hala. Its liveliness just screams "Pokemon battles can be fun, y'know!" and really captures Hau's overall attitude during his Pokemon journey.
* [[ The theme of the Tapu Ruins]] has a very mysterious but calming feel, to the point that it could pass for a track from the first ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime''.
* [[ Lillie's Theme]] is a beautiful piece that is as soothing as it is haunting and mysterious, much like the girl herself and her companion. It undergoes a [[ lively remix]] [[spoiler: to showcase her CharacterDevelopment, and will be guaranteed to bring a smile to listeners' faces.]] However, for those who [[spoiler: miss her after she departs from Alola,]] the theme will instead bring a tinge of melancholy and nostalgia.
* [[ Plumeria's Message]] - soft and low-key, yet every bit as poignant as the moments in the story when it's used.
* [[ Lonely Lillie]], the music that plays during [[spoiler: Lillie's farewell to Nebby]].
* And there's the [[ end credits]]. Upbeat yet heartachingly nostalgic, it makes you realize you never really wanted it all to end.
* [[ This song]] accompanies the "The End" screen. The sound of waves breaking on the shore is incredibly soothing. Even better, it's [[spoiler: a remix of the song that plays inside your house, one of the first songs you heard when you started the game]]. Makes you want to just sit on the final screen for a minute or sixty...

** If you're not done crying, there's [[ "Have to Get Home"]], which follows soon afterwards. Short and simple, but nevertheless beautiful.
** [[ Farther Away...]]
** [[ Memories Returned]] plays over your partner's montage of memories of your adventures together, just before the end credits. Someone wrote [[ lyrics]].
** And then the [[ ending theme]] kicks in to remind you that you just did something great. It acknowledges that some difficult sacrifices were made that are still hard to accept, but man, you saved the world! What's not worth it about that?
* [[ Steam Cave]]. Also [[ Upper Steam Cave]].
* [[ Hidden Highland.]]
* The [[ Outlaw/thieves battle music]] from Time and Darkness was truly awesome.
* [[ Blizzard Island Rescue Team Medley]]. Odd how they can conjure nostalgia even when the original was only about two years old.
* [[ The Darkness/Planet Paralysis]], [[ Sealed Ruin]] and the [[TearJerker waah-inducing]] [[ In the Hands of Fate]]. Or, heck, the incredibly moving [[ Time Restored]] and [[ Time Gear]].
* The themes of [[ the Hidden Land]], [[ Treeshroud Forest]], [[ Quicksand Cave]], and [[ Brine Cave]] demand your attention.
* [[ Team Charm's Theme.]]
** [[ Barren Valley]], the first dungeon of Grovyle's extra chapter.
** [[ Vast Ice Mountain Peak]], the final dungeon of Grovyle's extra chapter.
** [[ The music]] from the first part of the Vast Ice Mountain is quite sad.
** [[ In the Morning Sun]], the music before Special Episode 5's credits [[spoiler:as Grovyle, Dusknoir and Celebi begin to fade away. [[TearJerker *bawls*]].]]
** [[ A New World]].
** [[ Special Episode 5 Ending Theme.]]
* The [[ Fortune Ravine theme]]. The whole thing just screams "EPIC ADVENTURE"
* [[ The Star Cave theme]]. It's very pretty. [[ Deep Star Cave]] is not to be ignored, either.
* [[ Mt. Horn.]]
* [[ Northern Desert]].
* [[ One for All, All for One!]], from when [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome the Wigglytuff Guild shows up to back up Bidoof]] in Special Episode 1 and [[ Defy the Legends]] (a remix of the first games' final boss theme), for some bosses, including the Seven Guardians.
* Two games into a subseries, and we're already starting to have recurring themes... not that that's a bad thing when the [[ Boss Theme is so awesome]].
* The lamely named but ''epic'' [[ Random Dungeon Theme 3]].
* The battle theme used for [[spoiler:Dusknoir]] and Darkrai. Take a listen and get pumped and creeped out at the same time. [[ Ooh]]!
* [[ Dusk Forest]]. To some it might be a bit tacky, but to others, it's just awesome. Plus, [[ Deep Dusk Forest]].
* [[ Palkia's Onslaught!]] is a suitably epic theme for a suitably epic boss. Too bad it didn't get ported over to ''Super Mystery Dungeon''...
* [[ Dark Hill]].
* The [[ music]] for [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon Dark Crater]]. The [[ music]] for Deep Dark Crater is also pretty good, thought it doubles as HellIsThatNoise.
* Say hello to the awesome [[ Sky Peak Forest]] music! And the retro-styled [[ Sky Peak Cave]].
* [[ Barren Valley]]. So peaceful but so powerful.
* [[ Sealed Ruin]]. [[ Deep Sealed Ruin]] is epic, but doubles as HellIsThatNoise to some.
* [[ Crystal Cave.]]
* [[ Chasm Cave]], which is perfect for the environment of the BadFuture.
* [[ Spring Cave Depths.]]
* [[ Dark Wasteland.]] [[LongSongShortScene It's a shame the dungeon it plays in is so short.]]
* [[ Icicle Forest]] provides a sense of ominousness. Fitting, considering what happens afterwards...


[[folder: ''Gates to Infinity'' ]]

* The [[ opening theme]] provides a nice sense of the feat of "triumphing against adversaries in mysterious labyrinths".
* [[ Holehills]]: A dungeon theme that's fitting for the situation of going against the odds to rescue a dear friend.
* Despair, the game's obligatory tune used for sad and tragic moments. The [[ light]] and [[ super light]] arrangements convey sorrow in a pure, simple fashion. The aptly named [[ heavy]] arrangement, however, is of a totally different tone from the previous versions, and is used to set the mood for what's easily one of the darkest moments in the entire series, if not the darkest, and is very befitting of its name.
* This game's version of [[ the boss battle music.]]
* The [[spoiler: final visit to the Glacier Palace]] has a total of three tracks to it, since it's such a giant level. [[ The Eastern Spire]] starts it off on a mysterious note, then the [[ Western Spire]] switches it to a suspenseful and ominous note. But then the Great Spire comes along, and the result is unbelievable. Ladies and gentlemen, [[ the pinnacle of final level music]].
* The final boss themes are both amazing, as one might expect from the rest of the soundtrack's quality. While [[ the first theme]] has a dark and desperate tone to it, [[ the second theme]] really gives you the feeling that you can and ''will'' save the world, no matter what.
* [[ Theme of Hope]]. ''Beautiful.''
* The ending themes are incredible as always, [[ A Home To Remember]] being the first in a sequence of tearjerking songs that convey a profound mixture of joy and sorrow.
** [[ Wrapped In a Light]].
** [[ One Last Look at Paradise]].
** [[ Even If I Forget You]].
** [[ The Frism]].
* The whole first half of the game builds towards going to the Great Glacier, and when you finally arrive, [[ the music doesn't disappoint.]]
* One of the most rockin' BonusBoss soundtracks ever, [[ Bounty Board Challenge.]]
* [[ Ragged Mountain]] is just a wonderful first dungeon theme.
* [[ Hazy Pass (Highlands)]] is driving, tense, and an overall amazing piece.
* [[ Kyurem's battle theme.]]
* [[ Kyurem Approaching!]] When you hear this, you know something '''[[WhamEpisode bad]]''' is about to happen.
* [[ Withered Savannah]] is a catchy song with some wonderful vocal effects.


[[folder: ''Super Mystery Dungeon'' ]]

* [[ The main theme]] is about as bombastically orchestral as you can get.
* [[ The Partner's theme]] is sweet, beautiful, and an little sad at the same time. Also, an [[ equally amazing, but more heartbreaking]], music box remix.
* This [[ epic remix]] of the boss theme which re-orchestrates it and adds real instruments to make the boss fights feel even more grandiose. And then there's the [[ Rock version]].
* [[ The third boss theme]] is even more awesome, perfectly carrying the mood of an intense showdown with the [[OlympusMons deity-tier Legendaries]] it plays for.
* [[ Fire Island Volcano]] is absurdly epic, opening with a low-key didgeridoo before abruptly kicking into high-gear with strings and bagpipes.
* Both of the final boss themes are amazing, much like ''Gates to Infinity''. [[ The first theme]] really gives off the feeling of fighting an incredibly mysterious but dangerous foe, while [[ the second theme]] just ''screams'' the fact that everyone's counting on you to save the world. It even has part of the Partner's theme mixed for good measure!
* [[ Road to Primeval Forest]] is a haunting and ethereal melody perfect for an endgame crawl through TheLostWoods.
* [[ Lush Forest]] is one of the best songs in the game, and the perfect way to kick off your adventure.
* [[ Gentle Slope Cave]] turns out to have a really engaging and dynamic soundtrack.
* [[ Submerged Cave]]'s theme is mystical and crystalline, a perfect fit for the dungeon itself.
* The two final dungeon themes, [[ Tree of Life: Roots]] and [[ Tree of Life: Trunk]] are both epic, with the former's church bells and catchy instrumentation that is bound to get [[StealthPun rooted]] in your head, as well as the latter's more warped sounding instrumentation, which makes it sound more like the Tree of Life is being killed right in front of your eyes.
* Some of the best themes from the previous games got remixes here: [[ Sand Dune of Spirits]] is a remix of Great Canyon from ''Rescue Team,'' and Amp Plains from ''Explorers'' was remixed as [[ Electric Wasteland]].
* [[ Sahra Town]] and [[ Noe Town]] have wildly different but extremely pleasant themes that really sum up the character of each town. The latter even seems to have hints of the Time Gear theme from ''Explorers.''
* [[ Reverse Mountain]] is an epic song for a point in the story where things are getting intense, and its presence in the final few floors of [[BrutalBonusLevel Destiny Tower]] is fitting for a time when your journey is finally coming to an end.
* "[[ Make It!]]", the soundtrack's accompaniment to a climactic cutscene.

[[folder:''Pokémon Ranger'']]

[[folder: Original ]]

* [[ The music when you battle Raikou and Suicune]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonRanger'' is pretty cool. [[ The music for the final battle against Entei]], however, is pure awesomeness. [[ Gordor's theme]] is also good.
* [[ Go Rock Quad's Last Chance]], [[ Go Rock Squad's Secret Base]] and [[ Sekra Range]].


[[folder: ''Shadows of Almia'' ]]

* [[ Darkrai]]
* [[ Gem Guardian Battle]]
* [[ The Ranger School theme]] is one of the most awesome Pokémon music. [[ This is the outside version]].
* [[ Wild Pokemon Battle]], [[ Mission]]
* [[ Vien Forest]] is an amazing road tune.
* [[ Team Dim Sun]] also has a very catchy blues-style tune. Not to mention their [[ battle theme]], and the [[ Admin Battle]] and [[ Sinis Trio Battle Themes]].
* [[ The Go-Rock Quads' music]] and [[ their concert at the end]].
* [[ Altru Tower]].
* Ladies and gentleman, the [[ Cargo Ship/Oil Field Hideout]]. Note how it's a medley of several Dim Sun themes.
* [[ The Altru Building music.]]
* [[ The Shadows of Almia Ending]] is beautiful, especially from 1:05-1:36.

[[folder:''Pokémon Colosseum'']]
* [[ The friendly battle theme.]] To quote the comments section, "never before has a one-sided battle against two extremely common Pokémon been so epic." To wit, the song (and its associated Trainer, Rider Willie) was so popular that it ([[RunningGag and Rider Willie]]) returned in all its ([[RuleOfThree and his]]) splendor for ''XD''.
* [[ The normal battle theme.]]
* The [[ Pokémon Center theme]]
* [[ The Cipher Peon battle theme.]]
* [[ Pre Gym theme,]] an awesomely catchy and upbeat song that just makes you wanna dance.
* [[ Pyrite Town,]] so insanely catchy you'll start finger-snapping along.
* [[ Miror B.'s theme]]. Let the music play!
* The peaceful [[ Agate Village.]]
* The beautiful [[ Relic Forest.]]
* [[ The Cipher Admin battle theme.]]
* [[ "The Under,"]] which is a town theme that sounds nothing short of awesome.
* [[ The Shadow Pokemon Lab theme]] makes surprisingly effective use of the piano and harmonica to produce a tune that doesn't sound like it should fit a secret criminal research lab, yet it somehow does.
* [[ Tournament Semifinal Battle.]]
* The relaxing [[ Realgam Tower.]]
* [[ The final boss theme.]]
* [[ VS Battle 1,]] which remixed the Hoenn Trainer theme.
* [[ VS Battle 2,]] ''Colosseum'''s remix of the Hoenn Gym Leader theme.
* [[ VS Battle 3,]] the ''Colosseum'' remix of the ''RSE'' Champion battle theme is pretty great.

[[folder:''Pokémon XD'']]
* ''XD''[='s=] [[ Cipher Peon theme.]]
* This game outfitted Miror B. with a [[ funky-fresh, disco-riffic battle theme,]] perfect for groovin' to.
* ''XD''[='s=] [[ Cipher Admin battle theme!]]
* [[ The Phenac City takeover music,]] officially named "Cipher Command." At first you just think, "Hmm, the music is a little different." It's certainly not worse than [[ the original,]] but something about it just doesn't feel ''right''... and then the theme suddenly gets progressively more sinister until it comes to a positively demonic crescendo... and then it loops back and goes back to the pretty, serene theme that it was at first. [[spoiler:This theme plays when, unknown to the player, Cipher has taken over the city with its members disguised as the various characters who are normally in the city.]]
* "[[ Citadark Isle]]", a heavy, bombastic theme that perfectly fits TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon of the game.
* You probably used the Master Ball instantly on Shadow Lugia... but if you did, you missed out on his [[ awesome battle theme.]]
* The [[ final battle theme]] is even better than the previous game's.

[[folder:''Pokémon Snap'']]
* The chirpy "party time" [[ Main Theme]].
* The dark and scary [[ Tunnel]].
* The war-drums of the [[ Volcano]].
* The western-sounding [[ Canyon]].
* The surreal, mythical [[ Rainbow Cloud]].

[[folder:''Pokémon Trading Card Game'']]

[[folder: First game ]]

* [[ The Club Master battle theme.]]
* [[ The Grandmaster Battle Theme]] is pretty epic too.
* [[ Ronald's theme]] for two distinct reasons: 1) because it's awesome and 2) because it conjures up memories of ''beating the absolute tar out of that jackass''. To put it another way: Ronald is [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Blue/Gary's]] {{expy}}. But unlike Blue, you will ''want'' to face him, if ''only'' for this awesome theme. That can't be said for most Rival battles.
* The [[ regular battle theme.]] Who says awesome tunes can't be laid back, especially with that bass.
* How about the chiptune beauty that is... [[ the theme to the Water, Rock and Psychic Clubs?]]
** By contrast, [[ the theme for the Fire, Fighting, and Science Clubs]] is ''very'' hardcore. But hey, children's card games are SeriousBusiness. As something of the odd middleman, [[ the Grass and Lightning Clubs]] gets this feel-good beat.
** The [[ theme for Mason's Lab/the World Map]] is oddly soothing. Has a bit of a "getting ready to depart on a grand journey and explore the world" feel to it.
* [[ Imakuni's theme]]. Just as weird as the guy himself, but catchy as hell.


[[folder: Second game ]]

* [[ GR Duel]] from [[NoExportForYou the second TCG game]] is cool stuff.
* The OST for ''Pokémon Card [=GB2=]: Here Comes Team GR!'' really pushed the limits of the Game Boy Color in the sound/music department, and it shows. Another standout track is the [[ Great Rocket Fortress Leader Duel theme.]]

[[folder:Other spin-offs]]
* The [[ Battle Royale theme]] and [[ Mewtwo's theme]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonRumble''.
* [[ Pokémon Fort Team Battle]] from ''Pokémon Rumble Blast''. That guitar...
* ''VideoGame/HeyYouPikachu'':
** The [[ credits]]. This song, in which Pikachu himself sings, may not be "awesome" in the "I just captured Mewtwo with a Great Ball" sense, but it ''is'' the cutest song that was ever sung.
** [[ Another]] from ''VideoGame/HeyYouPikachu''. This game had a surprisingly good soundtrack for how simple it was.
* ''VideoGame/PokeParkWii'' has some great tracks near the end. The [[ boss style battle music]], [[ Rayquaza's Balloon Panic]], and especially [[ Mew's Tag Race]] stand out.
* ''VideoGame/PokemonPinball'':
** [[ "Mezase Pokémon Master",]] the first Japanese intro of the anime, in 8-bit form if you go play Blue Field in "Catch 'Em" mode.
** ''Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire'' gives us the calm and relaxing [[ Pokédex theme,]] [[labelnote:*]]based on the theme of Ever Grande City from ''Ruby & Sapphire''[[/labelnote]] as well the ominous [[ Kyogre battle theme.]]
* ''VideoGame/PokemonConquest'' gave us some pretty good battlefield themes. For example, here's the [[ Avia (Flying)]], [[ Pugilis (Fighting)]], [[ Violight (Electric)]], and [[ Viperia (Poison)]] battlefield themes.
** The [[ battle theme for Dragnor, the Dragon Nation]] is probably one of the best penultimate battle themes in the series.
** To say nothing of the [[ final boss theme]].
** The [[ main theme]] of ''VideoGame/PokemonConquest'' exudes awesomeness and seems to be a fitting tune for such a unprecedented [[{{Crossover}} crossover game]].
* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonTrozei Pokémon Battle Trozei]]'' has some pretty epic tracks, particularly [[ the boss music]].
* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonTrozei Pokémon Shuffle]]'' has [[ this standout track]] play whenever you face another trainer and their Mega Pokémon. It probably won't play for long, since there's [[ an entirely different song]] for [[BackgroundMusicOverride when YOUR OWN Pokémon Mega Evolve]] [[MoodWhiplash that is completely different in tone.]]
* As you might expect, ''Pokemon Box: Ruby and Sapphire'' has a batch of remixed songs from ''Ruby/Sapphire''. They're not huge departures from the originals, but most of them have their own bit of awesome: [[ Title Screen]], [[ Bridgette (Fallarbor Town)]], [[ Arrange Boxes (Pokemon Center Theme)]], [[ Party (Come Along)]], [[ Gym]], [[ Hall of Fame]], [[ Slateport City]], [[ Oceanic Museum]], and [[ a music box arrangement of the Pokemon Center theme]].
* The [[ boss battle]] track from a ''typing game'', of all things, is absolutely fantastic.
%%The following example has been commented out for being a ZeroContextExample. Do not uncomment it without expanding it to provide context.
%%* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonTrozei Pokémon Battle Trozei]]'' has some pretty epic tracks, particularly the boss music.[[note]]Sadly, it's very difficult to find any tracks for it online[[/note]]
* ''[[VideoGame/PanelDePon Pokémon Puzzle League]]'' ends in the most appropriate way ever; [[spoiler:accompanying the credits is [[ an N64 remix of the Pokérap]]]]
* ''VideoGame/PokkenTournament''
** The game has some great songs for the arenas, but the one that takes the cake is the [[ Magikarp Festival stage theme]], which mixes traditional Japanese instruments and modern dubstep to create one kickass beat that will now be forever associated with Magikarp.
** [[ Tellur Town]] has a great "setting out on an adventure" feel to it.
** [[ Mystery Carnival]] serves as Chandelure's theme, and radiates a nice spooky and upbeat atmosphere.
** [[ Dark Colosseum Final]] is tense and climatic, especially when the organs and piano come in towards the end.
** [[ Neos City at Night]] takes the overly techno Neos City theme and tones it down while toning up the class.

%% Not an official Pokémon song as far as I can determine, but it was composed by Junichi Masuda (who composes a lot of the music for the main series handheld games), was played alongside other Pokémon songs in a live performance at a Pokémon-related event, and seems to have been composed in the style of the music used in the handheld main series Pokémon games.
* [[ This track]] [[note]]according to the video description's [[ link to Junichi Masuda's blog]][[/note]] was composed by Junichi Masuda of Game Freak (who is a part of the music group MTM and helps compose music for a lot of the handheld Franchise/{{Pokemon}} games) at the request of Shokotan (Shoko Nakagawa) of the television show ''Pokémon Sunday''. It was apparently played in a live performance by MTM on September 4th, 2011. As of now, it does ''not'' seem to be a "Generation 6" ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' game music track; it was likely just composed in the style of such game music. Nevertheless, it sounds ''awesome'', perhaps fitting for a wild Pokémon or Trainer battle theme. There's also [[ a terrific "triumphant" remix]] of this theme.
* In commemoration of the release of ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', Music/ThePresidentsOfTheUnitedStatesOfAmerica (the band) performed [[ "Can't Stop (Catchin' 'Em All)"]], an awesome ListSong about all... er, ''most'' of the Generation 5 Pokémon (essentially the closest thing that exists to an "Unova Pokérap").


[[folder: Anime ]]

[[folder:Image Songs]]
* The [[ 2.B.A.Master]] soundtrack. It's full of beautiful character songs, particularly "[[ Misty's Song]]" and "[[ The Time Has Come (Pikachu's Goodbye)]]".
** Special praise goes to [[ Double Trouble]], Team Rocket's theme. Why does Team Rocket keep coming back after failure after failure? [[{{Determinator}} Because we're Team Rocket. 'Do Unto Others'...]]
*** It's almost cliché to mention the foreign versions of music for animation on the Crowner pages, but one must mention just how ''wonderfully'' over the top the [[ German Team Rocket is]]. Yes, James CAN get even campier.
*** Their Japanese theme, [[ Team Rocket Forever (Roketto-Dan Yo Eien Yi)]] is equally awesome and conveys the same sense of unstoppability. [[note]]The English version wasn't quite so good due to an error in the voice/music sync, but it had potential.[[/note]]
*** The Team Rocket image song returns in glorious form with [[ Rocket-Dan Danka]], which begins with a military drumbeat, then brings in the electric guitars before what seems like the entire brass section of the orchestra takes over. The vocal version plays over their [[Awesome/PokemonAnime finer moments]], like their challenge to Team Flare. Indomitable Team Rocket, indeed.
** "[[ Viridian City]]", sung by Jason Paige, the same guy who did the original dub theme song.
** [[ "My Best Friends"]]. If you listen closely in the second version of it with a female singer you'll realize that it's James and Jessie who are singing!
** [[ The album's title song "2.B.A. Master"]], among others.
** [[IncomingHam YOU GUYS READY FOR THE]] [[ POKÉRAP?!]]
** [[ "Together Forever"]].
* Then there's the ''Totally Pokémon CD'':
** [[ Two Perfect Girls]].
** [[ The Johto Pokerap]]. P-O-K-E-MON!
** [[ You & Me & Pokémon.]]
** [[ Never Too Far From Home.]] A reminder to trainers everywhere that their loved ones are always with them.

* [[ Advance Adventure's instrumental remix]]. It was one of the pieces that Creator/FourKidsEntertainment consistently kept making the scenes it was used in just as awesome in the dub. The [[ vocal version]] is even better.
* [[ Pokémon Symphonic Medley]]. It's all the earlier opening themes put into an orchestral medley, and it is a thing of beauty.
* David Rolfe did the dub themes for seasons 4-8.
** [[ "Born to Be a Winner"]] (''Johto League Champions'').
** [[ "Believe in Me"]] (''Master Quest'')
** [[ "I Wanna Be a Hero"]] (''Advanced'')
** [[ "This Dream"]] (''Advanced Challenge'')
** [[ "Unbeatable"]] (''Advanced Battle'').
* As its lyrics say, the anime's ninth opening theme, [[ Battle Frontier]], certainly does overflow with rising power. Full version given for maximum awesome.
* [[ "Spurt"]]. There's nothing better than an intro with Creator/RicaMatsumoto going HotBlooded.
* The seventh opening [[ "Challenger!"]].
* [[ I wanna be the very best,]] [[EarWorm like no one ever was...]]
** [[ Extended version]]. "Come with me, the time is right..." The [[ Instrumental/Karaoke version]] isn't bad either.
** [[ Movie version]].
** What's that? You don't think there's any way the first opening could be more epic? [[ PowerGlove would like a word with you.]]
** [[ A rendition by Taylor Davis and Lara de Wit on piano and violin.]]
* [[ "Pokémon (Dance Mix)" version]], a single which is hardly ever heard because it was released unofficially by Robbins Entertainment. It was used in some commercials for [[Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie the]] [[Anime/Pokemon2000 first]] [[Anime/{{Pokemon3}} three]] ''Pokémon'' movies though.
* The original Japanese opening theme to the series ("Mezase Pokémon Master"): [[ Pokemon, GETTO DAZE~!]]
** Related, [[ an 8-bit remix]] from the ''Pokémon Pinball'' game.
** [[ Whiteberry's version for the fourth opening]] is pretty great too.
** The [[ 2001 version]] used for the 4th movie is nothing to sneeze at.
* Holy crap, [[ The Greatest - Everyday]] was so awesome it [[SpoilerOpening leaked out some spoilers]]!
** [[ The full version,]] and [[ the full instrumental version!]]
** [[ Band. Version.]]
* [[ Johto Theme Song]]. A perfect introduction to "a whole new place, with a brand new attitude". And catchy as all hell. The [[ Dutch version]] is too.
* [[ The theme of Orange Islands]], "Pokémon World".
* Then there's [[ OK!]], [[ Ready Go!]] and the 2009 version of [[ High Touch!]]. Oh, and [[ Together]] too. [[ High Touch!'s instrumental version]] has a hint of the first opening just to top it off.
* Best Wishes! probably isn't the best opening theme. [[ But damn, is it ever catchy.]]
* [[ Battle Cry - (Stand Up!)]] Dang... if that isn't ain't EarWorm, what on Earth is?
* [[ Be An Arrow]] was awesome enough, [[ then Episode N came out.]]
* [[ The X/Y dub theme]], a cool slightly-abbreviated remix of the ORIGINAL theme. [[ And here's the Full Version.]]
* [[ V (Volt)]] and its remix [[ Mega V (Volt)]] start out with the singer chanting out all eighteen Pokemon types, which is repeated after the chorus, and then there's the instrumental section in the middle of V (Volt). ''Man''. What could make it even better? How about the fact that V (Volt) is the song that plays whenever one of Ash's Pokemon evolves in the Japanese X/Y series?
** [[ How 'bout a Rica Matsumoto version?]]
** [[ "Mad-Paced Getter"]], the second Japanese opening theme for ''Pokémon the Series: XY'', stirs up quite the craze. And then there's [[ KiraKira]], the variant used as an insert song.
* [[ "XY&Z"]], the Japanese opening theme for ''Pokemon XY&Z'', is shaping up to be one of the most ''awesome'' openings, especially with its beautiful lyrics and amazing title sequence. There's also a version which plays as [[ Ash-Gerninja's Theme]] - which is whom the lyrics of the XY&Z theme song actually reference.
* [[ Alola!!]] is the first Japanese opening for ''Sun and Moon'' and very effectively captures the lighthearted yet exciting nature of the setting.
* ''Adventures In Unova'' gives us [[ It's Always You And Me]], a lovely piece, that emphasizes [[TheyveComeSoFarSong how Ash has gotten so far in his adventure]] with [[ThePowerOfFriendship his friends]], and [[TheDeterminator how he won't be giving up anytime soon]].
* The Swedish versions of the [[ original]] and [[ Advanced Challenge]] are pretty good as well.
* The [[ opening theme to the Explorers of Time and Darkness special]] is easily one of the most adventurous music tracks in the entire series. The perfect theme to prepare a viewer for Team Poképals' journey.

* The 20th ending, May/Haruka's HotBlooded theme [[ Watashi Makenai! (I Won't Lose!)]] [[DoItYourselfThemeTune sung by her voice actress]], KAORI.
* The 21st ending, Dawn/Hikari's theme [[ Kimi no Soba de (By Your Side).]]
** The [[ Winter version]].
** The ImageSong [[ remix]] [[DoItYourselfThemeTune from]] Creator/MegumiToyoguchi.
** This low-key [[ instrumental version]].
* Some of the other ending themes like [[ Boku no Best Friend e]], [[ Smile]], [[ Kaze no Message]], [[ Ashita wa Kitto]] and [[ Kimi no Mune ni LaLaLa]] are surprisingly moving.
* [[ Soko ni Sora ga Aru Kara (Because the Sky is There)]] is just... wow. [[ The orchestral version]] is ''at least'' as good.
* Best Wishes' [[ first ending, Fanfare of the Heart]], is adorable.
** Its second ending, [[ Can You Say The Pokemon?]], is the combination of the Pokerap and a rave party.
** The third ending, [[ Nanairo no achi]] is perhaps the most heartwarming ending so far. It's a pleasant reminder that the anime aims to show the main characters' journies together with their Pokémon, and having fun and spending time together with them.
* The only English ending song [[ Pokemon Go!]] Of course [[LongSongShortScene they only used the rap part in the actual show]].
* The fourth Best Wishes ending [[ Look Look Here]]. DancingTheme? Check. EarWorm? Check.
* [[ Type: Wild]] is awesome enough to make appearances as insert songs years later. The [[ English version]] is just as awesome.
* [[ One-Hundred Fifty-One]], the very first Japanese ending, is a very cute and very catchy song.
* [[ Big Meowth Day]], an ending theme from the recap show ''Pokemon Sunday''. If you've ever wanted to hear Meowth singing about surfing, this song has you covered.
* The third XY ending [[ DreamDream,]] which is also Serena's ImageSong.
* *This XY ending, [[ Peace Smile,]] is just so freaking adorable. [[ The full version]] is also extremely fun to listen to.

[[folder:Pokemon Live!]]
For those who aren't aware, there was a very short lived Pokemon Musical! And they did broadway versions of some of the songs from the anime while adding a few of their own. And it was awesome!
* [[ My Best Friends]] a three part harmony between Ash, Misty, and Brock. For those who love the original anime, this is an awesome version of the song!
* [[ The Time Has Come.]] Remember the sad song about Pikachu leaving forever? Yeah, they remade it... and it is sung by Ash himself. And his voice is ACTUALLY GOOD!
* [[ Everything Changes.]] Instead of it being about Pokemon like in the original show, this version is a duet between Professor Oak and Delia about how Ash is growing up. So, it really hits home for any parents out there.
* The fact that "Everything Changes" gets an EVIL REPRISE sung by [[ GIOVANNI HIMSELF!]]
* Giovanni has [[ HIS VERY OWN VILLAIN SONG!]] He is voiced by Darren Dunstan, who later voiced Maximillion Pegasus from ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' You can really hear hints of Pegasus when he sings.
* For those who didn't like the somewhat strange vocals in the original version of Misty's Song, [[ they changed it to a power ballad.]]
* The song [[ I Got A Secret]], a duet between Ash's mother about her [[spoiler: previous relations with Giovanni]] and Misty's [[spoiler: secret feelings for Ash]]. It's especially good when Ash joins in about wanting to be the best man he can be.
* [[ Double Trouble]] may not be as cool as its original counterpart... until ya find out that James was played by a younger version of Tony Award Nominee Andrew Rennells!
* This version of [[ Two Perfect Girls]] is what the original version should have been!
* Team Rocket gets a song about how they fail at their job... and then to precede to get on board with the idea that they are the [[ Best At Being the Worst]]. If ya like the idea of Team Rocket doing a Tango, then there ya go.
* Take the final confrontation between Ash and Giovanni... have them in a ''fist fight... [[ during a kickin' finale song!]]''
* Let's just say that [[ The Whole Soundtrack]] is awesome. The Stage Director has even uploaded the [[ Instrumentals]] to all the songs. So now even you can sing them!

[[folder: Series BGM]]
* [[ "Pokémon - I Choose You!"]], the Kanto/original series anime variant of the classic title screen theme from the main series games (specifically, ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Red and Blue]]''[='s=] title theme). There have been other similar and amazing anime arrangements of the same theme, such as:
** The [[ second]] and [[ third]] title variants of the original series.
** The ''[[ Pokémon: The Johto Journeys]]'' variant, modeled after the arrangement from ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Gold/Silver/Crystal]]''.
** The ''[[ Pokémon: Advanced Generation]]'' (Hoenn) variant, modeled after the arrangement from ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald]]''.
* The first generation had its music reserved for awesome scenes, too. Basically the regular Gym theme with better guitar licks. Always accompanied a BigDamnHeroes moment.
** That would be [[ Kanto Gym (Intense action) variant]]. You hear that, someone is going to have their ass handed to them.
** It has a remix, [[ Pokémon Gym (Version 2)]]. Say what you will about the series, but with music like this you can't deny that it has its awesome moments.
* The original [[ Team Rocket Motto Theme]], maybe not before the VillainDecay set in (that happened very quickly) but certainly from when they were threatening at least. And it shows in the music. The [[ Unova Team Rocket Motto Theme]] signifies them being ''even more threatening than before''.
* [[ This anime version]] of Route 1 is short, but to-the-point. [[ This take]] on the first generation's credits theme too.
* Two words: [[ Burning Battlefield!]]. Nice use of [[AutobotsRockOut electric guitar too]]!
* [[ Fighting Spirit]]. The horns are simply ''amazing''.
* [[ "Who is Stronger?: Epic Battle!"]] is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. The subtitle at least.
* [[ "Real Pokémon vs Copy Pokémon."]]
* ''Any'' time the anime used a remixed version of the game music. Listen to the [[ Kanto]], [[ Johto]], [[ Hoenn]] and [[ Sinnoh]] wild Pokémon battle themes.
* [[ Namida, Nochi Hare/Tears After the Cloudy Weather]]. Not to mention it always accompanies a moment that normally manages both Heartwarming and Awesome at once. Notable examples are Pikachu charging through the lightning to defend Ash in the first episode, the Pokemon breaking out to save Ash's life in "Snow Way Out," and Charizard waking up to see Ash massaging him out of an Ice Beam in "Charizard Chills."
* After an extremely long wait, a [[ badly needed BGM set]] has come out with some new anime arrangement tracks that were never released:
** The [[ RBY Champion battle theme]].
** [[ Burning Battlefield second version]].
** The [[ Johto Trainer battle theme]].
** The [[ GSC Champion battle theme]].
** The [[ Groudon/Kyogre/Rayquaza battle theme]]. One of ''the'' most epic songs to grace the ''Pokémon'' anime.
** The [[ Regirock/Registeel/Regice battle theme]].
** The [[ Team Magma/Aqua Grunt battle theme]].
** The [[ Team Magma]] and [[ Team Aqua]] '''Encounter''' themes.
** The Pokémon Gym remixes mentioned earlier.
** Special mention goes to the ''outstanding'' [[ instrumental version of "OK!"]], which was used as background music during the epic showdown between Ash's Charizard and Gary's Blastoise in the 271st Pokémon episode, "Playing with Fire!", as well as other Johto-era episodes. The fandom was practically in tears when this track ''finally'' got an official release on CD.
* [[ I Got a Victory Badge.]] Especially after the 50-second mark. Three guesses as to what point that's used in.
* Every single Elite Four battle theme:
** [[ Kanto]] -- also does double duty as the Gym battle. [[note]]This theme was only used for the Elite Four in the games in FR/LG, but it still counts for this section.[[/note]]
** [[ Hoenn.]]
** [[ Sinnoh.]]
* [[ A Meeting and Parting.]]
* [[ Prayer]]'s a TearJerker song.
* [[ To Be Continued]] has a sort of happy tropical island feel to it.
* [[ Cross the Sea.]]
* [[ I Got a Pokemon.]]
* [[ I Did It!]]
* [[ Johto Rival Battle.]]
* The BGM for ''Best Wishes/Black & White''. For example, the remix of the [[ Gym Leader's Last Pokemon]] theme is particularly epic; especially noteworthy is its use during Ash's fifth gym battle.
* [[ The Heroes of Hoenn]], which was what was played when... well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin something particularly heroic happened during the Hoenn saga]].
* [[ Hoenn Victory Road]], sadly cut from the dubs.
* [[ Dazzlingly Beautiful Girl]], an eerie piece from the original series.
* Johto's [[ Victory Battle Theme]]. Essentially the precursor to "The Heroes of Hoenn" and no less grand.

[[folder: Movies]]
* The [[ remix]] of the original title theme from ''Pokémon: The First Movie''. GAH.
* "[[ Three on Three]]" from Mewtwo Strikes Back which includes a horrifyingly awesome CurbStompBattle DarkReprise of the Kanto battle theme.
* [[ Tears of Life]] from the first movie. Perhaps the most well-done instrumental piece in Pokémon history. That music was only in the dub version of the movie, and apparently it ''actually made the original Japanese developers of the film [[TearJerker tear up]].'' You know you've made dub music history if that happens!
* [[ "Brother My Brother"]], another great dub-song-change[=/=]TearJerker. Some people think it's unfitting since it plays during a fight to the death, but one has to actually listen to the lyrics. It's not a song about brotherly love, it's a song about how there ''should'' be brotherly love instead of what's actually happening: a war in which brothers kill each other. In that light, it is ''very'' fitting for the moment, particularly when it comes to Pikachu's train of thought. From the Japanese version, there's [[ Kaze to Issho ni]], sung by well known enka singer Sachiko Kobayashi. It's one of the loveliest theme songs ever.
* [[ Pokémon 2000 version of the Orange Island Opening theme.]]
* [[ The Legend Comes To Life]], a.k.a. Lugia's theme from the second movie.
** It was actually changed from the [[ Japanese version]] which is stunning too.
** The whole thing is amazing, but it's the solo flute at the end...
** [[ The World Turns To Ash]], the music that plays when Ash and his Pokémon fight their way to the last sphere and back. Especially the part starting at 2:48 when Lugia shows up to give Ash a ride.
** The big symphony version at the end of the movie, where Lugia (with Ash on his back) and the legendary birds are flying around amongst all these other Pokémon...
* Behold [[ four AWESOME tracks]] from movies 3 and 5 (Japanese soundtrack).
* [[ Spell of the Unown Medley]] is one of the best pieces in the entire anime. From the same movie, [[ I Want Things Real Again]]. Beautiful.
* [[ CELE-B-R-A-T-E]][[note]]performed by the same guy that did 2.B.A Master[[/note]]. Bonus points for sounding like Celebi. From the Japanese version, there's [[ Ashita Tenki ni Shite Okure]], which is one of the loveliest theme sings ever.
* [[ Search for the Girl]] from Pokémon: Heroes. You normally have to be Music/WeirdAlYankovic to sound this awesome with an accordion. ([[ Weird Al you say?]])
* The fifth movie's version of the ''Master Quest'' opening theme was quite memorable.
* [[ The Rescue For Latios]] from Pokémon Heroes. It's so good it has been used during other epic scenes in the anime, such as [[ the debut of Misty's Flamethrower-using Gyarados (Which she previously had a fear of)]] and [[ the infamous "They're using Thunder as armor!" scene]], which despite being a a "What the heck?" moment, was still undeniably awesome.
* [[ Flygon's theme]] from Jirachi Wish Maker.
* [[ Chiisaki Mono]]. Made even more awesome when you factor in that Asuca Hayashi was ''14 years old'' at the time the song was released. They even adapted it into English as [[ Make a Wish]], including transitioning in and out of the original seamlessly. Wow. We seriously need more bilingual songs like that.
* [[ This Side of Paradise]] from Destiny Deoxys.
* Shinji Miyazaki's [[ It's a Counterattack!]] from the 8th Pokémon movie.
* [[ This song]] from Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.
* "[[ We Will Meet Again]]" is the ultimate tribute to the friendship of Lucario and Sir Aaron from Movie 8.
* [[ ~~Capture On~~]] from the 9th movie.
* [[ "Oracion".]]
** Also: [[ As long as I can hold my breath...]] Urgent yet hopeful and packed to the brim with emotion.
** The ending song, [[ Mamoru Beki Mono]].
* [[ Darkrai Inochi wo Kakete]] (Darkrai's Theme) sounds perfectly fitting for the Master of Nightmares. Ominous with deep horns, drums and [[OminousPipeOrgan organs]].
* [[ Arishia.]] Although a pretty short song, it's still pretty powerful.
* The lovely dub ending theme, [[ I'll Always Remember You]].
* [[ If We Only Learn]] from Arceus and The Jewel of Life is one of the most beautiful songs to come out of the anime.
* [[ Egao (Smiling Face).]] The Japanese Ending theme to Pokémon: Genesect and the Legend Awakened.
* [[ This Is A Beautiful World]] from Giratina and the Sky Warrior gives a beautiful uplifting message of the simple beauty in the world that many miss.
* The Japanese version of the [[Anime/PokemonVolcanionAndTheMechanicalMarvel Volcanion movie]] comes with an [[ updated version of XY&Z]], with an extra brass section making it even more epic. The English Dub gives us the series' counterpart 'Stand Tall' as a full remixed song, and it [[ is awesome!]]

[[folder: Pokemon Origins]]
* ''Anime/PokemonOrigins'' doesn't have a large soundtrack, but it possesses a number of great remixes from the past gen along with a few new pieces to coincide with Mega Evolution.
* [[ Their take on the classic title screen]], for starters. It is a breath of fresh air that does the original justice. That is, unless oyu aren't too fond of dubstep.
* [[ Welcome to the world of Pokemon]]. It's just as welcoming as the original game, and the appearance of Professor Oak drove many an old school fan to nostalgic tears.
* [[ Lavender Town]] got a tranquil and serene piano remix. Just mind the creepiness that still pervades to tune.
* [[ The Wild Pokemon Battle]]. For the nostalgic, this remix really sells it and drives the epicness home and makes one want to go and battle wild pokemon.
* The [[ trainer battle theme]] remixes the original anime version and makes it more badass. It's more serious, and it keeps people on their toes more while battling difficult opponents.
* [[ The Gym Leader Battle theme]]. Much more serene compared to game's version at first before going into a more triumphant tune. Bonus points for playing during the battle against Brock and in the montage where Red defeats Koga, Sabrina, and Blaine.
* [[ Gym Leader Last Pokemon]]. Better known as "Charmander vs. Onix", it plays in the SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome where Charmander, who has barely any health left, is the last thing standing between Red and defeat. Listening to this after watching the battle itself can cause one to suddenly relive the SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome.
* [[ Giovanni's Theme]]. You know something bad is going on when this theme plays. The second part is more sinister since Giovanni is getting ready to hand you your ass.
* [[ Rival Encounter]]. Not quite as smug sounding as the games, per se, but a lot more subdued and serene. As the song progresses, however, it starts to sound like Gary Motherf**king Oak's just grinning and getting ready to wreck your team.
* [[ Champion Battle]]. The final battle against Gary has never sounded so epic since the original games.
* [[ Mewtwo Battle]]. A more heart-pounding remix of the Wild Pokemon battle. It starts off ominous as the battle against [[TrueFinalBoss Mewtwo]] draws near, and keeps up the intensity going from there.
* [[ Mega Charizard X Theme]]. Also known as the Mega Evolution theme, it is perfect for when your most powerful pokemon [[spoiler:gets his HeroicSecondWind and uses his SuperMode for the first time against a previously invincible opponent, proving they're Not So Invincible After All.]]
* [[ Gionvanni Final Battle]]. Not only does it play right when Giovanni [[spoiler:begins his HeelFaceTurn, but it also does an incredible job of showcasing the epic conflict between Red's Charizard and Giovanni's Rhydon.]]

[[folder: Pokémon Mystery Dungeon specials]]
* The [[ opening]] for the first anime special is short but sweet.
* The [[ opening]] for the second anime special is pretty epic, and about five times as long as that of the first.

[[folder: Miscellaneous]]
* In honor of ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', Music/{{Pogo}} produced the song [[ "Catchatronic"]]. It was also made in commemoration of the 2013 return of the [[GottaCatchEmAll "Gotta catch 'em all!"]] {{slogan}} to U.S. advertising for the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' franchise. The song uses numerous audio samplings from various episodes of the ''Pokémon'' anime, notably the "Gotta catch 'em all!" voice clip(s) from NOT the first dub theme song, but actually the freaking ORIGINAL POKERAP (compare the 'Gotta Catch 'Em All!' from the remix to the said Pokerap). The mix sounds simply ''phenomenal''. GOTTA CATCH 'EM ALL- POK-E-MON!
* The [[ "Ash pulling an awesome win" music]] from the first season.
* [[ "What Kind of Pokémon are You?"]] is the type of song that ''never'' loses its relevance, no matter how much the franchise expands.


[[folder: Other ]]

[[folder: Official remixes]]
* In 1999, Nintendo released a (fairly obscure) album of some of the music in ''Red and Blue'' called ''Pokémon Hikerukana?'' (Can You Play Pokémon?). The mixes of the [[ S.S. Anne]], the [[ opening]], [[ closing]] and [[ cycling]] themes are definitely worth listening to. [[ A user on YouTube]] has the linked songs and more. Listen to it. Now. Somehow, these guys make [[ Team Rocket's theme]] threatening with what sounds like a harmonica.
* [[ This remix of the Hoenn champion battle theme]] is simply epic. The beeping and Pokémon cries are all taken from the final battle against Steven. A remix in the same vein as Steven's theme was also done on [[ N's final battle theme.]] It's exactly as awesome (or even more than) as you think it is.
* There's the [[ vocalized remix]] of Slateport City by Hiroko Takano, making an already awesome track even better.
* An amazing [[ vocal remix]] of Johto's Violet City theme.
* Reorchestrated versions of 35 themes from Red and Blue. [[ The Opening Theme, Pallet Town, S.S. Anne, Vermilion City and more.]] We weren't prepared for this.[[note]]Fuchsia City is misspelled as Fuschia City, though...[[/note]]
** [[ Obligatory Lavender Town remix.]]
** These tracks are made by a single remixer, [[ Braxton "Skotein" Burks,]] whose orchestral remixes are so awesome, they actually resulted in [[ a licensed, official album.]] Which is a well deserved result. [[{{HSQ}} Go on,]] [[YourHeadASplode have a listen.]]
** Even ''[[ApprovalOfGod Junichi Masuda himself]]'' [[ loves it!]]
** [[ No longer]] [[ on Youtube;]] [[ now on Loudr!]]
** His work has seen [[SurprisinglyImprovedSequel major improvements]] for the follow-up, [[ Hoenn Summer.]]
* The Nintendo Special Big Band [[ did an especially awesome Pokémon Medley]] at a 2014 concert.
* Another game by Game Freak called ''VideoGame/HarmoKnight'' has a few bonus levels set to Pokémon music, namely the [[ Gym Theme,]] [[ Route 26]] from Gold and Silver, Gold and Silver's [[ Bicycle theme,]] and [[ the Champion theme]] from Red and Blue. [[ The battle theme]] from Black and White also shows up unedited.
* [[ ...]] from ''Pokémon Symphonic Evolutions'' is an absolutely epic orchestral remix of Red's theme, which will make you feel like you are standing on the peak of Mt. Silver.

[[folder:Fan remixes]]
* Ever wondered how Unova Route 10 would sound in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations''? No? Well, [[ here you]] [[ go]]!
* [[ This]] tear-jerkingly ''glorious'' remix of "Lugia's Song", [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a bone-chillingly masterful revamp of the original title]] from the ''Anime/{{Pokemon 2000}}'' soundtrack.
* [[ This insanely awesome remix]] of ''Red''/''Blue''/''Yellow'''s Champion theme.
** Also, the epic [[ metal remix]].
** There's also [[ this excellent remix]] that uses ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver HeartGold/SoulSilver]]'' soundfonts. Could've been a great EasterEgg remix for the battle versus Blue for the Earth Badge in Viridian City Gym.
* [[ This remix]] of the Kanto Gym Leader theme. Bad-ASS.
* [[ Kanto's Route 4 on the ocarina.]]
* [[ This remix]] of Kanto's Route 26 and 27.
* [[ This remix]] of Cerulean City.
* [[ This remix of Red/Lance's theme]] from ''Gold''/''Silver''/''Crystal''.
** This [[ final version of that remix which loops.]]
** [[ This remix]] too.
** [[ This]] orchestral remix too.
** There's [[ this]] fan mix with the ''Black and White'' soundbanks, which gives the tune OminousPipeOrgan.
** Yet [[ another amazing fan mix]] from the Japanese hack, ''Pokémon Golden Sun'' (a hack of the ''[=FireRed=]'' and ''[=LeafGreen=]'' games).
** There's also [[ this great remix]], done by [=TheGimpsta=] on Website/{{Newgrounds}}.
** Also from Newgrounds, [[ this remix]] by bob3rt puts its own spin on the classic track.
** [[ This remix]] starts out with a bit of an eerie feel, but once the beat kicks in, the whole track changes. Also has a nice piano solo section.
* [[ This orchestration]] of ''Crystal'''s Raikou/Entei/Suicune theme.
* This [[ piano cover]] of ''Gold''/''Silver''/''Crystal'''s credits theme.
* "The Medley of Pokémon" by Hapi. It's absolutely breathtaking. Can be found on [=YouTube=] in three parts: [[ 1]] [[ 2]] [[ 3]]. It absolutely FLOORS you. [[ This video]] has the download link for the full version.
* A [[ fantastic remix]] of the RSE Champion battle theme was made by [=TheGimpsta=].
* [[ This orchestral remix]] of the Sealed Chamber does wonders with the melody.
* [[ This remix]] of the Abandoned Ship is beautiful.
* [[ This remix]] of the Cyrus battle theme.
* The [[ techno remix]] of the DPP Game Corner.
* [[ This awesome remix]] of the ''Platinum'' Frontier Brain theme.
* This [[ EPIC]] remix of the Distortion World.
* [[ This remix]] of DPP's Rival battle theme.
* This [[ remix]] of Opelucid City from ''Pokémon Black''.
* [[ This 8-bit remix]] of ''Black'' and ''White'''s Legendary battle theme.
* An 8-bit remix of [[ Unova Elite Four theme.]] Just as intense as the original, if not more.
* [[ This Altru Tower remix]] is amazing.
* Try [[ this awesome chiptune version]] of Miror B.'s theme from ''Pokémon XD''. Or [[ this]] remix that fuses it together with various Champion themes.
* Ladies and gentlemen, [[ Driftveil City Rock!]]
* Driftveil City [[ trap.]]
* There's also this [[ beautifully flowing remix]] of Sootopolis City's theme.
* Mewtwo's theme from ''Stadium'' still sounds quite good in [[ new soundfonts.]]
* [[ "Battle!]] [[ VS Ho-Oh"]], modified with the ''Black 2/White 2'' soundfont by ChaoticMarin, offers a very intriguing and unique take on the original track that exudes tension, as if a weary yet defiant Trainer was locked in fierce combat with an embittered [[ThePhoenix phoenix]].
** This version of Ho-oh from salvation by faith records is [[ EPIC.]]
** [[ Unova League theme]]. It's bit ominous but it makes feel the place more... grand, more ultimate.
* [[ Drought]] and [[ Drizzle]] remixes. Try sleeping well after hearing that.
* [[ B2W2 remix of Hoenn Pokémon theme]]. Everyone aboard S.S. Hoenn!
* [[ A show-stopping cover]] of [[Anime/PokemonJirachiWishmaker Make A Wish/Chisaki Mono]] cover by Cocolu.
* The entirety of Pokemon Reorchestrated (arranged by Braxton "Skotein" Burks), which which is exactly what it sounds like. [[ Listen for yourself here.]] "Viridian Forest" and Through Time and Space" are some of the better ones.
* Blazaking's [[ Celestial Towers of Heaven]], a remix of the Celestial Tower theme from the Unova games.
* [[ Blue vs. Red]] takes the first two champion themes and blends them together seamlessly (with a little bit the Dark Cave theme). It's just as epic as it sounds.
* [[ GlitchxCity]] has a lot of remixed music, much of which belongs on this page. For instance: Giratina's theme + [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsDreamDropDistance L'Impeto Oscuro]]=[[ this.]]
* Music/TayZonday of Chocolate Rain fame has done [[ his own cover of the Pokémon Theme]], and he nailed the song.
* How about a metal cover of [[ RSE Vs. Gym Leader]]?
* [[ NateWantsToBattle]], who makes any awesome covers and original songs and parody songs, joined forces with LetsPlay/{{Markiplier}} and Yungtown to cover [[ 2BA Master]]. Yes, it's as awesome as it sounds. Amusingly, the song was updated slightly to include Fairy, Steel, and Dark in the segment where the types are all named, but it left out Poison, just as was done in the original song:
-->But first U gotta know about the different types:\\
Grass, Fire, Ground, Steel, Electric,\\
Water, Rock, Flying, Ice, Normal, Bug,\\
Ghost, Fighting, Dragon, Dark, and Fairy-\\
Don't forget about Psychic!
* Dear sweet Arceus, the Mark de Groot English cover of [[ XY & Z]] somehow manages to be better than the original! This is in part because it keeps several of the elements of the Japanese original in the form of {{Woolseyism}}s, such as the ikuzo/ikuzed[[labelnote:*]] Japanese for "Let's Go", with the "zo" replaced with the international pronunciation of the letter "Z" as zed.[[/labelnote]] pun becoming "Let'Z Go" and references to Pokemon abilities and moves in the lyrics including "Our hearts are burning hotter than [[ Flame Charge]]", "Our [[ steadfast]] hearts," and "[[ Breaking the mold]] will let our passion [[ discharge]]", as well as the translation de Groot is using emphasizing the relationship between Ash and his Greninja more so than the original lyrics.

[[folder:Fan Games/ROM Hacks]]
* ''VideoGame/PokemonPrism''[='s=] [[ wild Pokémon battle theme]] is surprisingly good for a romhack. Also, the two versions with the [[ HG/SS]] [[ soundfont]] are terrific.
** The [[ Gym Leader battle theme]] for ''Prism'' is simply ''amazing''! The ''astounding'' [[ HG/SS soundfont remix by [=SuperiorLarxene=]]] also deserves a mention, as well as the [[ grand orchestrated arrangement by GRonnoc]] (the original composer of said theme) and [[ Cat333Pokemon's remix]].
** The [[ Cave Theme]] composed for ''Prism'' is a nice leisurely tune to stroll along to. There's also a different take on the [[ Cave Theme]] for the game.
** ''Prism''[='s=] [[ Trainer/Rival Battle theme]] is another fantastic track. Bonus points regarding the marvelous [[ HG/SS soundfont version]] of the theme.
** The neat [[ Pallet Patrol Encounter theme]] for ''Prism'' should be very familiar to some players; it's just so [[MightyMorphinPowerRangers morphinomenal]].
** There's also the [[ main introduction theme]] for the game, which is actually a rearrangement of [[ "Everyday" by Carly Commando]].
* The fan game ''Pokémon Garnet'' from [[]] has its own fair share of nice music as well composed by [[ Tobinus]], most of which are currently tentative:
** The game's wonderful [[ title theme (Version 1)]] sounds like a somber take on the classic ''Pokémon'' main theme, while still providing unique elements of its own that preserve a sense of optimism, perseverance, and mystery.
** The amazing [[ music of Shadefern Forest]] is quite relaxing and could practically lull someone to sleep with the tranquility it conveys. It also seems to have elements inspired by ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' to ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheMinishCap'', and some people even think it sounds a bit like something from ''VideoGame/GoldenSun''.
* While still in beta, fan-made remakes of FRLG (made from scratch) feature [[ this]]. You're probably going to hear this a lot in full game.
* With Rule ⑨ being a thing, hacks of ''Pokémon'' games which replaced the ''Pokémon'' songs and 'mons with ''{{VideoGame/Touhou}}'' versions of them (or, in the case of the 'mons, just replacing them with ''Touhou'' characters) soon arrived in droves of varying quality. However, when the replacements are done well, they prove how much a single song can affect your mood:
** [[ "Cosmic Mind", playing in the Gyms of some versions,]] prepares you for the (possibly grueling) fights against the Gym Leaders.
** [[ "Fate of Sixty Years", replacing the Gym Leader battle theme,]] emphasizes how the leaders are supposed to appraise your fighting with only two available results (Worthy of the Gym Badge or Not), akin to [[BlackAndWhiteMorality Shikieki's Guilty or Not Guilty]].
** [[ "Ultimate Truth in Lavender Town"]] turns a climactic song into something utterly melancholic, fitting for a town (in)famous for its graveyard.
* ''VideoGame/PokemonZetaOmicron'' had some custom made tracks which really fit the atmosphere and sound generally awesome.
** [[ The Legendary Theme]] sounds great, despite it not being heard for long, due to it being a wild encounter Pokémon.
** [[ The Evil Team Leader's Theme]] has a very climactic vibe that makes you want to pummel the evil team leader.

[[folder:Original Fanmade Songs]]
* [[ The Church of the Helix Choir]], the inception of which is awesome in and of itself, spawning from the massive lore of LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemon. Its tracks commemorate the awesomest moments of the Twitch Plays lore, such as ATV's surprise victory over Lance ([[ "All-Terrain Victory"]]) and the battle between the protagonists of Red and Crystal ([[ "Godslayers"]]).
* Speaking of LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemon, Tai Reflections made [[ a good contender for an anime OP.]] [[ Not to mention KANIPAN's Japanese cover...]]
* [[ Battle! VS Guardians of the 31st Rose]] is an original composition, but was made using the ''Gale of Darkness'' soundfont and does a good job of capturing the feel of that game's boss battles.
* [[ Update Pokerap]] by Website/CollegeHumor. All 718 Pokémon. Nine minutes of hilarious rapping. [[ The Pokédex Song]] is similar, but sung to the tune of Creator/GilbertAndSullivan's "The Major-General's Song" in the style of Tom Lehrer's "The Elements".
* Under his Kitsune^2 alias, furry musician Ren Queenston made [[ PKMN]], a song whose instrumentation is made up mostly of... Pokémon battle cries?!
* Oak's Parcel was a sadly short-lived Nintendocore project that aimed to create songs inspired by each of the original Kanto Pokémon. [[ Gyarados]] and [[ Dragonair]] were among the few of these songs that were made publically available.
