[[folder: Pokémon Title Theme]]
* The original [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaaFap2G1-4 Pokémon Theme]] itself.
** ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue FireRed and LeafGreen]]'' brought about [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcsOSKBZOgA their own great remix]].
* ''Gold and Silver''[='s=] is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1KVDI7vbEM pretty great as well]].
** ''[[UpdatedRerelease Crystal]]''[='s=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJkYzzMqj44 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWwprXnxT9I HeartGold/SoulSilver remix]].
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdUYg1G7XWM Ruby and Sapphire]]''[='s=] and its remix in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOcForNhwZs Colosseum]]''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FJEyj6ctTQ#t=12 The orchestrated remix]] in ''Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire'' is a truly grandiose song.
* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Diamond and Pearl]]''[='s=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnIzcjwQ8qU title theme]] is great, too, although it plays more during the introduction ''video'' rather than on the title screen itself.
* And the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSJ8FMCy-Q4 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=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JamGLhknrXo title theme]] itself is great as well.
** ''Black 2 and White 2'' version also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9zULU-C_WE does the job]].
** ''Black 2 and White 2''[='=]s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXpaSjI2DH0 title screen]].
* [[VideoGame/PokemonXandY X & Y's]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUekOcO4y9w title theme]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:''Red''/''Blue''/''Yellow'']]
* The wonderfully calm [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOWRNLaCMJg Pallet Town]], where it all began.
* [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=5I3Cm9necF0 The League Champion Theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLUWBgTUfdk Trainer battle Theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjA4SgVDmh4 The Rival's Encounter Theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vZb2Oy8OCM The Original Gym Leader Music]]. Awesome on a stick. You knew it was time to get serious when you heard it.
* And for the old school, the original [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBby1E3tWwo Cinnabar Island]] theme. Kinda makes you feel like you're walking on a low bit beach huh?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFtCQNfbEss Pokémon Mansion]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNJJ-QkZ8cM Lavender Town]]. Which is awesome in a scary way.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8NktOkmRvM Pokémon Tower music]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwyjgQgYo68 Silph Co.]], which is, in a few words, creepy, chaotic, and totally awesome.
** That's also true for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koAnijvXHcs Team Rocket's Hideout]]. The true theme of Team Rocket?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxU2UjAjN24 The Bike Theme from the original R/B/Y games]]. It's so unbelievably catchy...
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGJglX2t5YM S.S. Anne]] music.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LzmlpAjMpHs Ending Credits Theme]]. Even better, up until ''Diamond and Pearl'', the ending credits themes ''always'' ended with a short callback to this original.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bRctqZpTM8 Route 11,]] the seaside boardwalk famous for tieing Lavender Town, Vermilion City and Fuchsia City together. It's also famous for the awesomely carefree feel embodied by its BGM.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLcJois9yTs The Main Kanto Route Theme]].
** [[http://www.viddler.com/v/d1e634b3 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0G12EBW4KY 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.
* The one, the only, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Q2et9q17eM original Victory Road]]. Short song, but packs an unbelievable amount of awesome into the time you spend with it.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DIZ6MoMuoA The Hall of Fame Music]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frymuc5gG44 The music that plays inside the Pokémon Gyms]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPH9bT2Agc0 Viridian Forest]] is damned creepy! And so addicting...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pX9scc13gMw 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpPWNOhJtqs Cerulean City]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TB-xa6CChA Pokémon Center Theme]]. What an EarWorm.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgdBcvzcQNY Viridan/Pewter/Saffron City Theme.]] This music is classic!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhxY4a9u6Dc Celadon City]] and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voO-DGr0K4w original Game Corner]]. So catchy and wonderful. Kind of jarring when you think about Team Rocket's presence there.
* The one, the only, the original [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUTW3hJx52U Surfing tune]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7yDXSq18mY Vermilion City,]] best described as "departures, arrivals and goodbyes" in musical form. Taken UpToEleven in ''Gold and Silver''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vz29y40RjsY Mt. Moon]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:''Gold''/''Silver''/''Crystal'']]
* Your Johto adventure begins with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxqHQ9nOZcc Route 29]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhpyvZSbPQo Route 30]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWokB4Ec5Og The champion theme]]. If you're not picturing yourself getting your ass kicked by Red while listening to this, well, you might want to look into that source of heat that is your pants.
* From ''Crystal'', the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8Pgfp4JYW0 Raikou/Entei/Suicune Theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjGgfZ8JkyA Rival Trainer music]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PK1yjBgxgho His leitmotif]] is just as good as the first games' rival's theme. If not better.
* The [[http://hk.youtube.com/watch?v=JbCtVIDMEAs Johto Trainer Battle Theme]]. ''GSC'' managed to make the second most-heard theme in the games epic.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mo_CY0HcIws Johto Wild Pokémon Theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHxPVXfMjk4 Johto Gym Leader Theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1-VyHIx_SY Goldenrod City]], perhaps the best town theme EVER.
** And its awesomeness grows with the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KFILUFqcjE Bike Theme REMIX!]]
** It's even better if you take the train from Saffron into Goldenrod. They just meld perfectly into one another.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWbUtdx827g Lucky Channel/Game Corner Music]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDcIDTCgdew 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iRU6wMIW38 Violet City/Olivine City Music]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhQs-I2p9P0 Team Rocket's Battle Theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HA9Ws-_iCEw THE. TIN. TOWER.]] Almost impossible not to like this.
* The music used in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbcjFvXGXYQ Azalea Town/Blackthorn City]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5Z3642mwt0 Team Rocket Radio Tower Takeover]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9uLs8tz49I Team Rocket Hideout]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALBTQMzD2so Dark Cave]], awesome enough to make you WANT to go in there.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nU263Ud3LM4 Credits Theme]] sticks the most out of all the tracks in the game.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XjouKSkSeM National Park Theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4P4b_YTNC7c The Bug Catching Contest music]], a remix of the first-gen Bike Theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSa_TGbJjCg Eusine's Leitmotif]] from ''Crystal''.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChIF8RW_b2Y Battle]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytMr1MDPSPw Tower]] Music.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMzC3RpYHGg The Route 42/43/44 & Lake of Rage music]] is just incredible.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMZ_8tL9TxM The Route 38/39 music]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5hWsOAbh2U 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.
* ''Gold and Silver'' probably has the most elegant [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aP0m-PJozWo surf theme]] in the entire series.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLIF66XLL8Y The Kanto Trainer Battle Theme]].
* The Kanto Gym Leader theme. Dear Lord, as awesome as the ''HG/SS'' version of this song is, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ts_foHlT_w 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9SFxVFKZw0 The Main Kanto Route Theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YP6-sqMQJ9s 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.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2bHOffTM3Q Victory Road]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_a3hoWJDXSs Indigo Plateau]] theme. A very short song, but it still makes you feel like the biggest BadAss around when it plays.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFnJ-UN48vU The music that plays inside the Pokémon Gyms]]. You knew that this theme had to show up eventually.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opXXFAl8lkY Pokémon Center Theme]] and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chmAMxlhh7o Pokémon Communication Center Theme]], which can only be heard in the Japanese version of ''Crystal''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xn6aMPUOA90 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAXA2qWwnKU 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?
[[/folder]]

[[folder:''Ruby''/''Sapphire''/''Emerald'']]
->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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zf9rqmkXCFA Route 101]] is yet another great first-route tune.
* Everyone volunteer their love for the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLsPZ2breaE R/S/E Elite Four theme]]
* The Champion's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-NylYukMv4 battle theme]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mcTV77e1TY encounter theme]] qualify as awesome tracks.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U495W97gSZ8 Route 120, one of the most epic route themes in the series.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4_tiCzlGGM Archie and Maxie]] Battles are under-appreciated.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVImEZA_4a0 Victory Road]] from ''Ruby/Sapphire'' is worth a listen.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E76zZ-lH8k8 R/S/E Gym Leader Theme]]. It's perhaps one of the BEST battle themes the series has!
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Lj16YwWrHk Wild Pokémon Battle]] theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTNgiLmjuZo Pokémon Trainer Battle]] theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfARFF9S5Jg Route 113]] from R/S/E, an utterly amazing track reminiscent of "Snowman" from ''VideoGame/{{Mother}}''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEtlhq1PxI4 Mt. Pyre (Peak)]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSYUacOWP8w Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza's battle theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7SrUYEKMOg Regirock, Regice, and Registeel's battle theme]].
* The rival theme, both for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJTV7kVTe5M Brendan]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbgpsQ0b7BU May]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHFBO-ASaE8 Verdanturf Town]]. One of the most beautiful tracks in R/S/E, which is saying a lot.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrdWwqlNwRM Heavy Rain]] is excellent for the situation, tense and ominous.
* And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzeGusU8z_s The Drought]] puts [[MemeticMutation Lavender Town]] to shame.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oY6ZwstAUnM The Mt. Chimney/Sky Pillar music]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0yo32iVGA0 Slateport City]]. One of the best town themes from the series.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8s8IAxtFhE0 The Sealed Chamber]]. A tranquil song that evokes the mystery and echoes the power of the Legendary Golems of long ago.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2MP97fwOa8 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_WkWaoBgNY 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9x1KWP9Apc Route 111.]] Almost made the endless sandstorm damage in battle worth it.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOoqKHz_D0w Route 104]] is a fantastic piece for the first beach you see in the game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6y2Nvy6GXU The Battle Frontier theme]] from ''Emerald'', particularly the opening few notes. The whole thing just screams "triumphant."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItBAAIlGz7A The Frontier Brain battle theme]] is no slouch either.
* All of the ending themes have a triumphant note to them, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UzM1PxXCbg Hoenn's Ending]] is a complete TearJerker.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFU8mrXb9LY Abandoned Ship]] had some great music. Sad, considering the place was never really plot-important.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=im6tbN9SZXs Littleroot Town]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZ5HREsFcUg Oldale Town]].
* One kickass [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pyyis1fasd0 Surf theme]] coming right up. Made the massive amounts of surfing required in the game quite tolerable for some people.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9vqvfxoRBg Diving theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2ut8s2hdSc Lilycove City/Pacifidlog Town]].
* As with all other route themes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKW-reR_jUQ Route 110]].
* The Gym Leader victory theme in every Pokémon game is super-happy, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyEa55PImc4 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!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Y0zo3CxroI Friendly Shop]], the Poké Mart theme. So awesome, it's appeared in every game since ''Emerald''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2MgCTyU8bw Mauville Game Corner]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QS7e5u61CMs Magma/Aqua Grunt Themes]] were the most awesome pieces in the game.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20OSTDplFMY Team Magma Appears!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAEgWAQmLdg Team Aqua Appears!]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gexTc0YbYx8 Cycling theme]] is so unbelievably happy and fast paced.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9H16EEEGZns 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEGNDNWH7zM Petalburg City]]. This link here is 10 minutes of upbeat pleasantry.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMavg1Y6wBg 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.
* Even the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80Tp0s-moIc "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.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_Ne483lQCI Rival Theme]]. For the first time that the player's rival is friendly, this theme is both upbeat and epic at the same time!
* The music that plays while in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3GrO6kxJCw Meteor Falls]] (and the Cave of Origin) is just awesome to listen to.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXDpynALaFM The Oceanic Museum]], a remix of the S.S. Anne theme from the first generation.
* The theme of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaZiqrnoabM Art Museum]] in Lilycove City is one classy tune.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rqco9nxyc8g Pokémon Center theme]], though it's not quite as good as the original, is still good in its own way.
* The theme in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghp_d3KLDDk Ever Grande City]] is a good piece to hear, especially after going though Victory Road.
* There's a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxDQmBZQ-ak remix]] of ''Crystal'''s Raikou/Entei/Suicune theme hidden in the data of the games.
* Another hidden theme: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLYGeIbh5OM Johto's Route 38/39 theme]].
* More hidden themes: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWPmqykhGrM Pokémon Communication Center]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxHWHO9qDwQ Viridian City]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZ16idg4QRg Team Rocket Radio Tower Takeover]], and the beta version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LMf8gx631M Littleroot Town]].

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7xyJO-fde8 The Rival's encounter theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yylKlV2Wij8 The Gym Leader battle theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPmVzG4RSIQ Cinnabar Island]], one of the best non-battle themes in the game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7H6Opt94-Rs Power Plant/Pokémon Mansion]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzW9Xf08GaI Lavender Town]].
* If anything, Pokémon Tower's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZjtFCucL-8 even scarier]] in ''FR/LG''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OJjPcIKArI Silph Co.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edL6I9cKZkI Team Rocket's Hideout]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aq3gneejUg4 The S.S. Anne music]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTASi6CR04g The FireRed/LeafGreen end credits]] is even better than the original, containing nods to the Team Rocket, Pokémon Center and Pallet Town themes.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:''Diamond''/''Pearl''/''Platinum'']]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4F2_QMD7M2k The Trainer Battle music]] is a real EarWorm, in a good way.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zpITTJiw7Q Dialga/Palkia battle theme]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXsBks4HRls "lake trio" battle theme]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VL2rzRqnjOA The theme for the other legendary Pokémon battles.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fgjy02TLuA Platinum Giratina]]!
** On the subject of Platinum: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IMo6UqOrmU Looker's theme]] is pretty awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4teSiG_m44 Route 205]] is a great and upbeat theme. Sets the mood for adventure.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGMf-72v7bo Team Galactic Battle Theme]].
** Not only was it epic, so was its [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3UOD7bhVvs Admin variant]].
* The music for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLn9WlR_A80 battle with Team Galactic leader Cyrus]] might be even better.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whX6TVUDF-E 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.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkhOikfcqDg "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 [[http://www.gamefreak.co.jp/blog/dir_english/?p=438 blog posting by Junichi Masuda]]. More information can be found in [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Battle_gene_M this article]].
** The music from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMvR-XrSl6k before the fight]] is also epic.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjDQ4po2nDQ Gym Leader battle theme]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUwjwrWtf0g Elite 4 battle theme]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ac1BsPvZWQ Game Corner]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-NHrwJgWzM Route 209]] is also a lovely theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bU44Yk659qo Sunyshore City]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyBsU5JVQXU Route 216]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-1O-_aC-08 Route 210]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-GFxbkGmMQ Mt.Coronet Peak]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZzN9_lifMM Oreburgh City]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9shju5SyF0 Platinum Frontier Brain theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyAp8JhtNCI The Distortion World's background music]]. The perfect blend of unnerving, surprisingly peaceful, and awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rDY46QS-pA Arceus's theme]] is unlike any other music in the game. Unfortunately, [[DummiedOut it only plays if you hack an unreleased event item]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP2gRJExDdY Route 201]] just gets stuck in budding Pokémon Trainers' heads.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6q4REbVu2cI Canalave City]]. Nice, relaxing, and it's basically a slowed-up version of the credits music from Pokémon Gold/Silver/Crystal!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsB8etSqZBw Route 225]] is an epic way to kick off a post-Elite Four adventure.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8EHVwEqVDc Route 225 at night]] sounds even better than it does during the day!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JR-YvxgnFH8 Stark Mountain]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecL2DZjfujM Rival theme]]
* Route 228. A jazzy theme that wouldn't be out of place at the Game Corner to liven up your desert route. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnwsP3RLSlg Listen to it.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wo1BbJbgmy4 Love it.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhbKIryzcjc Platinum's Global Trade Station theme]]; the electrifying tune somehow gives a sense of the wonder of trading Pokémon all over the world.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVrauB3vb50 Bicycle Theme]].
* Do ''Diamond and Pearl'' have the best ending themes? Ehh, well, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C05_abrtlBM judge for yourself]].
* 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTy7TfpUwRI Fisherman/Sailor]] theme.
* The Legendary Pokémon theme. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_VZqw8O79U Backwards.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFOkjI4Hgpw Sandgem Town]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzaxQ24VDS0 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.

[[folder:''HeartGold''/''SoulSilver'']]

* ''HG/SS'' has an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=og2fFqTZ3D0 incredible remix]] of the original wild Pokémon theme in Kanto. Encountering wild Pidgey will never be the same again...
* Despite the original Route 24 and 25 music not appearing in ''Gold'' or ''Silver'', the DS remakes have their own version, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyNoOGmtzhc and it's something else]].
* The music that plays in Cerulean City. Let's face it; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyySK_DaKrU this is awesome]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Rz3olNYFGc Pokémon Center Theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eU9zlkfLptk 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".

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvrVdRO45mI Ho-Oh]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LWKF6Le0KM Lugia's]] arrival themes perfectly capture the awe and wonder of summoning and encountering the two most powerful of Johto's living myths.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xju5qOxIe0M Ending Credits Remix]] does the original great justice, though [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yaTGnqdxkpU this]] version of it a bit better.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3cR0zmPXgA Cianwood City]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVFnud60qmU Ecruteak City]] have different but beautiful variations on the Game Boy Color original (originally the same track).

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kw2HbFhLjLI 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."
[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Black''/''White'']]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9o2HudPw7tE The music played during the intro movie.]] Chilling and epic, especially for the crowning of the king of Team Plasma.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Id53ltuVLPg Undella Town's]] spring/autumn/winter music.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYAoD710Dxo Nimbasa City]] has the most epic city theme ever.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YZ1ouxhzaM Driftveil City]] is pretty awesome as well.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ssYQHiTpNI Castelia City]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BphR1ZxqkKw Lacunosa Town]] is nice and soothing.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3dffjin4MI Mistralton City!]]
* The ''Pokémon White'' rendition of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g356DvtjCOo Opelucid City]] and its ''Black'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmqpoJzT6gU counterpart]] may sound nothing alike (with an exception; see below), 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxXZ7Ee4VFo attract]].
* In the old days, low HP would be met by [[MostAnnoyingSound an annoying siren sound]]. Now it's been replaced with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ouw0enV9l0M this.]]
* The battle themes for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3fEDc_4GhA Reshiram]] / [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VWPSYbJ6tI Zekrom]] / [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pO7lwU68x8k Kyurem]].

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2nMubCcl_o Earlier N battles]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyqmfJnuo3w The remix of N's final battle.]] The badass level just shot through the roof.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzfQhV3G_MU Emotion]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaNbEYXDbKU Bottled Emotions]], an awesome dubstep remix of Emotion.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cneztcvUMcY Ghetsis Battle Theme]]. '''[[OminousLatinChanting DEN]][[{{Mondegreen}} NIS!]]'''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bgl5t7UFlg Enter Ghetsis]], attacking his son with the most abusive words you are likely to hear in a Pokémon game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLQF7uBZ0zE N's Castle Bridge]]. Very reminiscent of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon's music.
** How about [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bz6_KXQHZ_0 N's Castle]] itself? It's somewhat reminiscent of Castlevania music.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZ_YWai76Ws 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.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWfP71MQusI Normal Trainer Battle]] is ''epic''. Not only that but it's [[EarWorm surprisingly catchy]].
** And the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqnpvyUPXUM remix]] that plays in the Battle Subway, for techno fans.
** And here's both of them [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLW9xfMLex8 together.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cp3FtEaV7tQ The Team Plasma Grunt battle theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgYzRc4ZmBY To Each Future]], the credits theme, is amazing.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjY3SCL1aNU wild rare/double battle theme]]. Comes out of nowhere, but still awesome.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMmwi8rDIF0 Surfing Theme]], which reminds many players of ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}''.
* Everything about N is awesome, including his personal {{Leitmotif}}, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rreuTdZ2yMw N's Theme]] which is both haunting and childish... perfect for him.
** On the subject of N, the music in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJGUaD6Qd64 his room.]]
* Speaking of Mother 3, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzKRuwKyJmY N's Farewell]] takes its first five notes from the Mother 3 Love Theme.
** And then there's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgLBligLJPU amazing official remix.]] [[TearJerker It brought tears to many a person's eyes.]]
* This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtEiJ8sjZzM Hauntingly beautiful remix]] of N's Farewell.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i09HFMmbra0 This remastering]] is great too.
** Even better, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAkxCYPfRsg Using the Soundfont]] from ''VideoGame/MOTHER3'' for the song. It's as beautiful and as [[TearJerker Heartrending]] as it sounds.
* On the subject of ''Mother 3'', we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Gnu2AttTPI Route 10]]. You half expect to bump into Boney.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MV2TSKvbrl8 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8iw3lRegg0 Elite Four Battle Theme]]. As one Website/{{Youtube}} commenter said: "The bass and drums [in] this song is enough to make your Pokémon faint."
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJ5be-l6xG0 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 background theme for the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9C-8VXLmow EntraLink]]. Sounds more like an epic background theme from ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' than one would necessarily expect.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98KWBVg7Fbo Relic Castle]] has some amazing, soothing music that reminds you of VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lr7dL450N2M Accumula Town]] sounds extremely great, but it gets even better when you talk to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=259C4AaOHn0 the drummer and the pianist]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkuQaYi375c 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWT6wLIcWW4 The Champion/Subway Boss Battle]] music is upbeat, triumphant, and a ''major'' EarWorm.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzdfrtCZ0dc Victory Road]] is pretty much finality and epicness distilled into musical form.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MN7d3UPKZEM Route 6]] has some pretty awesome music.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuwwN4Y1AMw Route 11]] has music that is very fitting for a postgame adventure.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpgfs0UUT6w The Diving Theme]]: calm, mysterious, and soothing.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KE1iXYzRmw Alder's Theme]] may sound out of place in a Pokemon game, but is still very catchy and enjoyable.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWy-fL5Evw4 Skyarrow Bridge.]] Words can't do it justice.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWvmaSHM0bo The Rival Battle Theme.]] Quirky and catchy.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1h6NJjH8tWI Cheren's Rncounter Theme]] isn't bad either.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cviH_lZ0yA Black City]], and its counterpart, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ac8KQWP1d3I 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vWKJTvCDSU Icirrus City]] has a peaceful and cheerful melody that can't help but make you smile.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-SJa9_UfeE Route 2]] gives a true feeling of childlike wonder like few other pieces in the games.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQtjCXTh4rc Battle! Kanto Champion]], a remix of... guess.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPyZ4GIEs8k Pokémon Center Theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCd4pccHCfU Cynthia Battle]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NRuf0PjdGE 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.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSY9wESKSDA Looker's Theme]] gets an upgrade, and almost doubled in length.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qt9Rr8CA1uM Spotted! Artist!]] is an EarWorm.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qo_hJnC9mbI Marvelous Bridge]]. Truly marvelous. And also a bridge!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgIdLnSua5k Carrying Out A Mission]], which only plays while you walk up to Team Plasma's castle.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:''Black 2''/''White 2'']]
* The music for the new towns and cities in the game deserve to be mentioned:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HsoH-WNTtw Aspertia City]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpmN5b4FfeM Floccesy Town]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4_Hyk8Sjic Virbank City]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILf8Lw24N4E Lentimas Town]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SlQeWy-Hz7U Humilau City]].
* The antagonists get great themes this time around.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UJqW3rH6o8 Team Plasma's aggressive and relentless battle theme]]. It really shows how much Team Plasma has diverged.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Le0UoamPrbQ Colress' upbeat]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDZygFP1iNQ techno/electronica themes]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EybTIUgjs8 Ghetsis's Theme]] gives off the vibe of [[VillainousBreakdown just what he's going through.]] Now with more [[{{Mondegreen}} DENNIS!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhqxUfkJC_0 Black Kyurem]] / [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0bkyrC7naw 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DV8GjSK2p0 Leitmotif]] starts off with the same 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsJXhjg1bbM Iris' Battle Theme]] is so made of ridiculously awesome, it's not even funny.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rb-aFOLCZAo 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iI2mXlTN2lE Plasma Frigate Bridge]] BGM, on that note. Very reminiscent of Pokémon Ranger's music.
* Not only are the Shadow Triad promoted from being TheUnfought, but they also have a pretty great [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnEUnBsciMY encounter theme]].
* 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. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8T6dvEuV7hk DOGARS!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcGX0JixrX8 Castelia Gym's Theme]] is quite ambient for a Gym theme, but it does the original justice.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pTFLxeg6tg Nimbasa Gym's Theme]] is pretty awesome as well, 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.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6mQ42YDFu0 Driftveil Gym's theme]] has a distinct "underground" sound to it and fits the setting quite well.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUnIM5wYbKs 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.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdkEQQoc7ew 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.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8awuUq-LA80 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.
* Both themes for Reversal Mountain, from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qp944dY2Rdc Black 2]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Si7P7eRTPHo White 2]] are quite enthralling in their own ways.
* Routes 21 and 22 ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XI3o0yfZ2Q summer]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umtdGIGH4Wo fall]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jv3UAWoEJwU winter]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4bCJypTZNU spring]]). Very happy tracks that are also quite reminiscent of RSE's music.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jTjfkzfbwg Route 23]]. A very fitting pre-Pokemon 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.
* ''Pokémon World Tournmament'' features lots of older characters, and remixes a bunch of themes for that!

* Hugh's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lkw07p2q8zc Encounter]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jETlcG3hdSY Battle]] theme are both exceptional pieces of music, even having a touch of Ken's [[BootstrappedTheme bootstrapped stage theme]] from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qyiQfV-eMQ Marine Tube]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJnEnO0JXuM Brycen-Man / Full Metal Cop theme]] in Pokestar Studios.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zMVs2r3jOY The Uxie/Mesprit/Azelf Battle Theme]] makes a comeback.
* Black 2/White 2's take on the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtJtwEHoDf4 Regi Trio's Battle Theme]]. And it's more badass than ever! Bonus points for using it when catching Regigigas.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOOEgzBPxU0 The Gen 4 Legendary Theme]] makes a comeback, but only for Heatran. Still no less awesome though.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6uWG81FO6w White Treehollow Challenge]] is a beautiful theme, which may make you forget you're in [[BonusDungeon Unova's Challenge.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ta84E3U5R-E Encounter! Team Plasma]] 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZENq90Z5fs The ending theme]], a wonderful song that concludes a wonderful adventure.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''X''/''Y'']]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Esg4JtwK7As Trainer Battle Theme]]. Starts out a bit friendly, but gets that "fierce" feeling within the middle of the song.
* When you face the new Gym Leaders in their awesome, unorthodox gyms, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkZkbbfOEdM their theme]] is appropriately awe-inspiring. Heck, even the electronic instruments turn the volume UpToEleven.
** The Gym Leader theme gets a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dO9sKK3J50Q 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 [[http://youtu.be/ZFRNr3wwico this one]] of the Kalos Gym leader's battle theme and the Successor's battle theme, have also proven to be really popular.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfdTMhypOcA Team Flare Grunt Battle]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmL04IaygE4 Which gets a remix]] when you face Team Flare's leader [[spoiler: Lysandre]] in battle.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3VDa3ycb98 Professor Sycamore's theme]], which has a very French vibe.
* Both of the Legendary Pokemon themes... there's one for the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWRTxXvuI3s battle against Xerneas/Yvetal]], and one for encountering [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rMolADpRvY Mewtwo and the Gen I Legendary Birds]]. The latter also doubles as a CallBack to Red and Blue.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyxH3gTH4uU The Champion's Theme]] is basically taking a beautiful painting or a stained glass window, and putting it in music form.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NlWrzuZoL5Q The Elite Four Theme]] can totally get you pumped!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_zCZhrwuMA Route 8's Theme]] consists of an orchestra so grandiose it would make ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' proud.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9kkgOVdQE8 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'.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHQoQd5UMe0 This piano rendition of Jubilife City]] can be heard via a similar way.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4CiRfFaHcI The Sun Shines Down]], [[spoiler: [[TearJerker where AZ reunites with his Floette after so long in the ending.]]]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95a6lAjFVvQ 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=]).
* Another potential TearJerker in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rm3y3Hk9Sn4 Snowbelle City's theme]].
* And another with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rRg6v9f2dA 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 [[http://elfcoach.deviantart.com/art/KISEKI-410586815 these]] JustForFun/PokemonVietnameseCrystal styled [[IntentionalEngrishForFunny Engrish]] lyrics to the song.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvnAMABQ240 Victory Road]]. A perfect track for making you want to step forth and charge into battle.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbuxiWpe818 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkVF2c0dKTA Coumarine City's theme]]. Smooth, jazzy, and absolutely perfect for the beautiful port city.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4GjmQBCi2E The Kalos Power Plant theme.]] Mysterious, spooky, and apprehensive, perfect for the Power Plant and Pokeball Factory.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kf5tiS2yYCk 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIC6Y5SLU_w The Pokemon Village theme.]] Very quirky, and very [[VideoGame/{{Earthbound}} Saturn Valley-esque]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIHCBhBMc28 The Santalune City theme]] really gets you pumped up for your first gym battle.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eG_w1OyM3Yg The Geosenge Town Theme.]] Very peaceful, making the whole town feel like relaxation.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Etd7hgsKKGA Shalour City's Theme]] gives an oriental, ancient vibe to Korrina's hometown.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3l0ImA006jQ Bicycle]]. Who else rode the bike up and down one route, just for that glorious music?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iL0PgiEfrAA 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvoq6Yj2-xY Secret Super Training]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3lUgrmv3rc An Eternal Prison]]: [[spoiler:[[TearJerker "He was given a tiny box."]]]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYf6yrKzLzA music]] that plays during the CharacterCustomization screen is well worth [[spoiler:playing through the entire game]] to hear again. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjco2AvX08s Sycamore's Lab]] uses the same melody, and is almost as good.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubArIiDKDGo 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.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZavQcSFsm0 Rival Battle Theme]] is all of the above, except fiercer and more competitive.
* To accompany [[spoiler: Looker]]'s return, his theme was given [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qhUPxiZ_2o a massive upgrade]].
** There's also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7MtFqsw2ZY a tear jerking version in a minor key]], which is played at certain key moments in his sidequest.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewtSxK5tLnc 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kXQdB3p6Xk The Gate music]], which you would probably hear for about five seconds as you're passing by.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utTEqUaf8lQ Sina and Dexio]], which is very friendly compared to the energetic theme of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSK5o-SGfbc "A Mysterious Figure".]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIf3GNH_RB0 Encounter! Youngster]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vGxY3ns3hU Encounter! Lass]] all fit the relatively easy mood for the first few Trainers in the beginning of the game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=193o5Tx40sk Encounter! Poké Fan]] does suit the cheerfulness of the Poké Fans.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mT5ggOxI-TM Encounter! Twins]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nWz3G26_Wo Encounter! Tourist]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExaOtqnnxig Encounter! Butler]]. Fits the rich Trainers of the Battle Chateau pretty well.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmsWUm9H3hA Encounter! Maid]]. There's actually the sound of plates and other utensils being moved in the background as a nice touch.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyqr_B6x7uE Team Flare Appears!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSQwFk_jJvY Encounter! Female Swimmer]] is such a big EarWorm.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFjCPEJf39M Riding Skiddo]], a great theme to hear while riding those Pokémon.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bI5-07yknWY 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlmWCoyp234 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]]'''.

* Two games into a subseries, and we're already starting to have recurring themes... not that that's a bad thing when the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1_1gFzLPKU Boss Theme is so awesome]].
* The lamely named but ''epic'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3INfot08l40 Random Dungeon Theme 3]].

[[/folder]]

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

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwpzeSyEJ9Q opening theme]] provides a nice sense of the feat of "triumphing against adversaries in mysterious labyrinths".
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2pU8jLheA8 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pqSZQI7xaE light]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpq7uqFca_8 super light]] arrangements convey sorrow in a pure, simple fashion.
** The aptly named [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1KglU5LlFk 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IGsMrHoaLA 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. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O86_Cd0Iweg The Eastern Spire]] starts it off on a mysterious note, then the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fBfoM-RMoM 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, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoOs6Zh2jxI 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjQpTKcasdU the first theme]] has a dark and desperate tone to it, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KVqbLRYuRE the second theme]] really gives you the feeling that you can and ''will'' save the world, no matter what.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDMaNSwQ7d4 Theme of Hope]]. ''Beautiful.''
* The ending themes are incredible as always, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHdIvlNDKg0 A Home To Remember]] being the first in a sequence of tearjerking songs that convey a profound mixture of joy and sorrow.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QnslrVV5jE Wrapped In a Light]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-OGKkGXPEg One Last Look at Paradise]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vgve22OysOc Even If I Forget You]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvCQyiuhFHs The Frism]].
* The whole first half of the game builds towards going to the Great Glacier, and when you finally arrive, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZjaq96DeaA the music doesn't disappoint.]]
* One of the most rockin' BonusBoss soundtracks ever, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JGiPyyVMVA Bounty Board Challenge.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmJvO2ZSNBA Ragged Mountain]] is just a wonderful first dungeon theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLoxv2EHlnI Hazy Pass (Highlands)]] is driving, tense, and an overall amazing piece.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqtJ9zyF0dk Kyurem's battle theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvONFCf5RMo Kyurem Approaching!]] When you hear this, you know something '''[[WhamEpisode bad]]''' is about to happen.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAyAw8BziFQ Withered Savannah]] is a catchy song with some wonderful vocal effects.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7irNZ_MfUyY The music when you battle Raikou and Suicune]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonRanger'' is pretty cool. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAkSW1slujo The music for the final battle against Entei]], however, is pure awesomeness. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Rycp-pfID0 Gordor's theme]] is also good.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lReqvsu9iiU Go Rock Quad's Last Chance]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsvLvIoX0DU Go Rock Squad's Secret Base]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F56Y9sy5QvE Sekra Range]].

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

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikkZdn2o3LI Darkrai]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PM6hxTFwQk The Ranger School theme]] is one of the most awesome Pokémon music. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-KWauYa40c This version]] at 8:52 is heard outside.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jifjWLLaCss Team Dim Sun]] also has a very catchy blues-style tune. Not to mention their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtclskynAB4 battle theme.]]
* And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdhVYapWfi4 the Go-Rock Quad music]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DiZGcE7iJko Altru Tower]].
* Ladies and gentleman, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gBmUckAa_Y Cargo Ship/Oil Field Hideout]]. Note how it's a medley of several Dim Sun themes. Also, the video's picture is a spoiler, so view at your own risk.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGM50bufZns The Altru Building music.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buPUFxwwNr4 The Shadows of Almia Ending]] is beautiful, especially from 1:05-1:36.

[[folder:''Pokémon Colosseum'']]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAHHFc-gIeI Miror B.'s theme]]. Let the music play!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkfAz08cupw 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''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPcvfbkoJ6E The normal battle theme.]]

* The peaceful [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5s9FEa7mCo Agate Village.]]
* The beautiful [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1-wIw5_kDw Relic Forest.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-911UPw6u7k "The Under,"]] which is a town theme that sounds nothing short of awesome.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pU7c1kxapGw Pokémon Center theme]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNyCF5FR8Yk VS Battle 3,]] the ''Colosseum'' remix of the ''RSE'' Champion battle theme is pretty great.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6Ka6TX9q_U VS Battle 2,]] ''Colosseum'''s remix of the Hoenn Gym Leader theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itXFPpAISMo VS Battle 1,]] which remixed the Hoenn Trainer theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wGfVSV3V80 Pre Gym theme,]] an awesomely catchy and upbeat song that just makes you wanna dance.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:''Pokémon XD'']]
* This game outfitted Miror B. with a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuhqoZvyntA funky-fresh, disco-riffic battle theme,]] perfect for groovin' to.
* ''XD''[='s=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LH3vgXGiVY Cipher Admin battle theme!]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvhx2409c4c final battle theme]] is even better than the previous game's.
* You probably used the Master Ball instantly on Shadow Lugia... but if you did, you missed out on his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jK9sMfN2JAk awesome battle theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYCNKKARcy8 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOLFUmBM8go 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.]]
* ''XD''[='s=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSdeJcWX14w Cipher Peon theme.]]

* The war-drums of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zpp_GEkZpUc Volcano]].
* The dark and scary [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfK7v9omgL0 Tunnel]].
* The chirpy "party time" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1PvrIJFV6Y Main Theme]].
* The surreal, mythical [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0b3m7VTFTBI Rainbow Cloud]].
[[/folder]]

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

[[folder: First game ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgMHWxN2U_w The Club Master battle theme,]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucQ6rLeRxyg The Grandmaster Battle Theme]] is pretty epic too.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=al1TH4WOYCM 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfDxSEc5mDw regular battle theme.]] Who says awesome tunes can't be laid back, especially with that bass.
* How about the chiptune beauty that is... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymsVuT0PXfA the theme to the Water, Rock and Psychic Clubs?]]
** By contrast, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqUHBvWGu1Q the theme for the Fire, Fighting, & Science Clubs]] is ''very'' hardcore. But hey, children's card games are SeriousBusiness. As something of the odd middleman, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEc02lBN1sA the Grass & Lightning Clubs]] gets this feel-good beat.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7TiDOt6e2w 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.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Second game ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYjYm5nhaMo 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esnsczmMG0k Great Rocket Fortress Leader Duel theme.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Other spin-offs]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgqIWCLLSrY Mewtwo's theme]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonRumble''.
** And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEBeX6__0ms Pokémon Fort Team Battle]] from ''Pokémon Rumble Blast''. That guitar...
* ''VideoGame/HeyYouPikachu's'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLJu46HqfMk 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.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umgy2O5uyo4 Another]] from ''VideoGame/HeyYouPikachu''. This game had a surprisingly good soundtrack for how simple it was.
* And while we're on the Pikachu spinoffs, ''VideoGame/PokeParkWii'' has some great tracks near the end. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aUJnLkENpo boss style battle music]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y36vKjA2Tkc Rayquaza's Balloon Panic]], and especially [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKWLblAyyTQ Mew's Tag Race]] stand out.
* ''VideoGame/PokemonPinball'' gives us [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xndA54jz4R0 "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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vs8AN00kyNE Pokédex theme,]] [[labelnote:*]]based on the theme of Ever Grande City from ''Ruby & Sapphire''[[/labelnote]] as well the ominous [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQrbfUCKpe0 Kyogre battle theme.]]
* ''VideoGame/PokemonConquest'' gave us some pretty good battlefield themes. For example, here's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHghFvhyQaU Avia (Flying)]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQb47VtvRI0 Pugilis (Fighting)]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wLN8DgJJ0M Violight (Electric)]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCNZ_VBqtjw Viperia (Poison)]] battlefield themes.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oC3RehL5q7Q battle theme for Dragnor, the Dragon Nation]] is probably one of the best penultimate battle themes in the series.
** To say nothing of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLoaNOlGV_4 final boss theme]].
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6droq3Qme_k main theme]] of ''VideoGame/PokemonConquest'' exudes awesomeness and seems to be a fitting tune for such a unprecedented [[{{Crossover}} crossover game]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUaJTl1hZc boss battle]] track from the ''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.

%% 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.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqOy5XOxYhA This track]] [[note]]according to the video description's [[http://www.gamefreak.co.jp/blog/dir_english/?p=438 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLis0NwiqXw a terrific "triumphant" remix]] of the above theme.
* In commemoration of the release of ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', Music/ThePresidentsOfTheUnitedStatesOfAmerica (the band) performed [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GKykZ5zmqU "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:Image Songs]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZdzY9TGu1c 2.B.A.Master]] soundtrack. It's full of beautiful character songs, particularly "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_6f6DWp7Nk Misty's Song]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xghYihKX9Es The Time Has Come (Pikachu's Goodbye)]]".
** Special praise goes to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngovaH86VVU 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 cliche to mention the foreign versions of music for animation on the Crowner pages, but one must mention just how ''wonderfully'' over the top the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D26zP-qGEsM German Team Rocket is]]. Yes, James CAN get even campier.
*** Their Japanese theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47qYYEFiBB4 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]]
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOsdy1ZsXUs Viridian City]]", sung by Jason Paige, the same guy who did the original dub theme song.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmvWPiV37BM "My Best Friends"]]. If you listen closely in the second version of it with a female singer you'll realize that its James and Jessie who are singing!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kJ9wp-mog8 The album's title song "2.B.A. Master"]], among others.

[[folder:Openings]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kEL8bWVqxo 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQEc4DL2FG8 vocal version]] is even better.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2YMGyCAP1M 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.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FffwBfd4Po0 "Born to Be a Winner"]] (''Johto League Champions'').
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Qbe3K6dgaE "Believe in Me"]] (''Master Quest'')
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ET1H1vj6zYM "I Wanna Be a Hero"]] (''Advanced'')
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUAsFL9QwC0 "This Dream"]] (''Advanced Challenge'')
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_wHzfKQZ6E "Unbeatable"]] (''Advanced Battle'').
* As its lyrics say, the anime's ninth opening theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbLCG-JM-ag Battle Frontier]], certainly does overflow with rising power. Full version given for maximum awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNd5yDRFN1k "Spurt"]]. There's nothing better than an intro with RicaMatsumoto going HotBlooded.
* The seventh opening [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpGRX8lgtuY "Challenger!"]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JuYeHPFR3f0 I wanna be the very best,]] [[EarWorm like no one ever was...]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZdzY9TGu1c Extended version]]. Come with me, the time is right...
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6WB82qEtKs Instrumental/Karaoke version]] of the above. Not bad in its own right.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jm8Vus-VQwE Movie version]].
** What's that? You don't think there's any way the first opening could be more epic? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ev3VwmpBXyo PowerGlove would like a word with you.]]
** [[http://youtu.be/igIXFyxFTm0 A rendition by Taylor Davis and Lara de Wit on piano and violin.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEjo3H0zcSc "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/PokemonTheMovie2000 first]] [[Anime/{{Pokemon3}} 3]] ''Pokémon'' movies though.
* The original Japanese opening theme to the series ("Mezase Pokémon Master"): [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oprKrUcG8yA Pokemon, GETTO DAZE~!]]
** Related, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLQ3zdd47CE an 8-bit remix]] from the ''Pokémon Pinball'' game.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ccg3KK4lz0 Whiteberry's version for the fourth opening]] is pretty great too.
* Holy crap, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsYrrOLxpSw The Greatest - Everyday]] was so awesome it [[SpoilerOpening leaked out some spoilers]]!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZOARVtYBtU The full version.]]
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08jwVQqdZn8 The full instrumental version!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ckz7Lof7hs0 Band. Version.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-NBuLpZq3U Johto Theme Song]]. A perfect introduction to "a whole new place, with a brand new attitude". And catchy as all hell.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0Z_qJItuHo Dutch version]] is too.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-3vq7G8e68 The theme of Orange Islands]], "Pokémon World".
* Then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6xVdR0h8pQ OK!]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqCD-k_2vwU Ready Go!]] and the 2009 version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaqgvhWRY6s High Touch!]]. Oh, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrN_rUnuIfc Together]] too.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDnRP5VAeVk High Touch!'s instrumental version]], which has a hint of the first opening just to top it off.
* Best Wishes! probably isn't the best opening theme. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVW3GKCgE4A But damn, is it ever catchy.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kixkWySH-sI Battle Cry - (Stand Up!)]] Dang... if that isn't ain't EarWorm, what on Earth is?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAQflCr1xQs Be An Arrow]] was awesome enough, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtp854o6FYg then Episode N came out.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=naHJhNkmKsY The X/Y dub theme]], a cool slightly-abbreviated remix of the ORIGINAL theme.

[[folder:Endings]]
* The 20th ending, May/Haruka's HotBlooded theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TUFyzhGPSeY Watashi Makenai! (I Won't Lose!)]] [[DoItYourselfThemeTune sung by her voice actress]], KAORI.
* The 21st ending, Dawn/Hikari's theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcnZO2fnJdw Kimi no Soba de (By Your Side).]]
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J--GPB6G8I0 Winter version]].
** The ImageSong [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djzisTzBkLQ remix]] [[DoItYourselfThemeTune from]] Creator/MegumiToyoguchi.
** This low-key [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ah6h6xMMUvw instrumental version]].
* Some of the other ending themes like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwcLrmIFVYE Boku no Best Friend e]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VF8fxFEfyV8 Smile]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9b_Vr-zpNrQ Kaze no Message]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaEtyYPeODs Ashita wa Kitto]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xz-Aox1lNas Kimi no Mune ni LaLaLa]] are surprisingly moving.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXggnwsOP7s Soko ni Sora ga Aru Kara (Because the Sky is There)]] is just... wow.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQgrh8ona1k The orchestral version]] is ''at least'' as good.
* Best Wishes' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4bCIbi59xw first ending, Fanfare of the Heart]], is adorable.
** Its second ending, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ds8rBXZLlfI Can You Say The Pokemon?]], is the combination of the Pokerap and a rave party.
** The third ending, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozRlvlPTuUs 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qi4COadklMw Pokemon Go!]] Of course [[LongSongShortScene they only used the rap part in the actual show]].
* The fourth Best Wishes ending [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7AEprYK248 Look Look Here]]. DancingTheme? Check. EarWorm? Check.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4YUdqdw2HA Type: Wild]] is awesome enough to make appearances as insert songs years later.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VRmP6aWM8A English version]] is just as awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-krrdVMglvU One-Hundred Fifty-One]], the very first Japanese ending, is a very cute and very catchy song.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Series BGM]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEKj586vqy8 "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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8xRAMo8GhE second]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02D8l8Joysw third]] title variants of the original series.
** The ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhzOYxPpXSw Pokémon: The Johto Journeys]]'' variant, modeled after the arrangement from ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Gold/Silver/Crystal]]''.
** The ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7wIJ10CibA 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDOtEeI8sOQ Kanto Gym (Intense action) variant]]. You hear that, someone is going to have their ass handed to them.
** It has a remix, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKLcroA7V-A 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p09hhXbsB9c 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9n7_3dEcaQ This anime version]] of Route 1 is short, but to-the-point. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-BRsoawdfY This take]] on the first generation's credits theme too.
* Two words: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48S_q42YQkw Burning Battlefield!]]. Nice use of [[AutobotsRockOut electric guitar too]]!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Skffj4qq2cA Fighting Spirit]]. The horns are simply ''amazing''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFC3mYlxC5E "Who is Stronger?: Epic Battle!"]] is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. The subtitle at least.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzMF6BzGge8 "Real Pokémon vs Copy Pokémon"]].
* ''Any'' time the anime used a remixed version of the game music. Listen to the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLZwxD8kwc8 Kanto]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hDHkfWLrNo Johto]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEwAPnIev38 Hoenn]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7RVvrO5UTA Sinnoh]] wild Pokémon battle themes.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsh2p_Ku6-w 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 [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pocket_Monsters_Original_Soundtrack_Best badly needed BGM set]] has come out with some new anime arrangement tracks that were never released:
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMPvoVAX2XU RBY Champion battle theme]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaeI9Wg-pbc Burning Battlefield second version]]
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_j1CjfLUb0 Johto Trainer battle theme]].
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCIqh48mFdE GSC Champion battle theme]].
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpnl3PRSBbo Groudon/Kyogre/Rayquaza battle theme]]. One of ''the'' most epic songs to grace the Pokémon anime.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOJKk37uOlk Regirock/Registeel/Regice battle theme]].
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ch_puCeHPYk Team Magma/Aqua Grunt battle theme]] .
*** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFIw9Peq1MI Team Magma]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8rPI7LuhBw Team Aqua]] '''Encounter''' themes.
** The Pokémon Gym remixes mentioned earlier.
** Special mention goes to the ''outstanding'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofVwGpugOs0 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAxsmWToKJo 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:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zd6uH15cJRM 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]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1hBm4LRZRw Hoenn]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZv5NzYzAgw Sinnoh]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5aeoZqgCHY A Meeting and Parting]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Fa8elz8tzc Prayer]]'s a TearJerker song.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjMe5d-che0 To Be Continued]] has a sort of happy tropical island feel to it.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeLx4O_bRjg Cross the Sea]].
* The BGM for ''Best Wishes/Black & White''. For example, the remix of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HntNR_aMdIg Gym Leader's Last Pokemon]] theme is particularly epic; especially noteworthy is its use during Ash's fifth gym battle.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wv87lkkSr18 The Heroes of Hoenn]], which was what was played when... Well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin something particularly heroic happened during the Hoenn saga]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6b9JkHNd94 Hoenn Victory Road]], sadly cut from the dubs.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=huoOfIBZmFw Dazzlingly Beautiful Girl]], an eerie piece from the original series.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Movies]]
* Shinji Miyazaki's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybyt7w1v5Vw It's a Counterattack!]] from the 8th Pokémon movie.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mG57tjQTtBY The Legend Comes To Life]], a.k.a. Lugia's theme from the second movie.
** It was actually changed from the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvB2ZQaPdnc Japanese version]] which is stunning too.
** The whole thing is amazing, but it's the solo flute at the end...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mH0008o-6cs 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!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZFcTGAGL3s "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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHP8mGY7KSs "Oracion".]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6l5YYTGT1cY ~~Capture On~~]] from the 9th movie.
** Also: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VSix0hbgsM As long as I can hold my breath...]] Urgent yet hopeful and packed to the brim with emotion.
** And the ending song, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWCo-0b_YZY Mamoru Beki Mono]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eM9rxj6Oytc 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JU9n_r7aww 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PippuvSw8N0 Make a Wish]], including transitioning in and out of the original seamlessly. Wow. We seriously need more bilingual songs like that.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jj7xnFenKGM Search for the Girl]] from Pokémon: Heroes. You normally have to be Music/WeirdAlYankovic to sound this awesome with an accordion.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZCZ7M_lifM Weird Al you say?]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnpYK5KrehM Spell of the Unown Medley]] is one of the best pieces in the entire anime.
** From the same movie, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lFX9Xbj13A I Want Things Real Again]]. Beautiful.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EYRxgkDums Darkrai Inochi wo Kakete]] (Darkrai's Theme) sounds perfectly fitting for the Master of Nightmares. Ominous with deep horns, drums and [[OminousPipeOrgan organs]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HU0Q6ISaV4c If We Only Learn]] from Arceus and The Jewel of Life is one of the most beautiful songs to come out of the anime.
* Behold [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMf0p9AAixM 4 AWESOME tracks]] from movies 3 & 5 (Japanese soundtrack)
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5XJdtiM-YA We Will Meet Again]]" is the ultimate tribute to the friendship of Lucario and Sir Aaron from Movie 8.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ld3JPWdt7JI The Rescue For Latios]] from Pokémon Heroes. It's so good it has been used during other epic scenes in the anime, such as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmkBBQXQEQY the debut of Misty's Flamethrower-using Gyarados (Which she previously had a fear of)]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2Il6vXiInE the infamous "They're using Thunder as armor!" scene]], which despite being a a "What the heck?" moment, was still undeniably awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5UsFTPVoe4 This song]] from Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtgOLgS2EhQ Three on Three]]" from Mewtwo Strikes Back which includes a horrifyingly awesome CurbStompBattle DarkReprise of the Kanto battle theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLQ4USay3Ts Flygon's theme]] from Jirachi Wish Maker.
* The lovely dub ending theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-D0aOMlDs4 I'll Always Remember You]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BS_mNTLiu08 Pokemon 2000 version of the Orange Island Opening theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBrgqzjlzEg Arshia.]] Although a pretty short song, it's still pretty powerful.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPrSy79JvZc Egao (Smiling Face).]] The Japanese Ending theme to Pokémon: Genesect and the Legend Awakened.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Miscellany]]
* In honor of ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', Music/{{Pogo}} produced the song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIe7GfaYXoA "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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDOtEeI8sOQ "Ash pulling an awesome win" music]] from the first season.

[[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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTu1LBAGsf4 S.S. Anne]], the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOMfvfWuBos opening]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mEhKEqaiIU closing]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHtv16PGuag cycling]] themes are definitely worth listening to. [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Sasoreh A user on YouTube]] has the linked songs and more. Listen to it. Now.
** Somehow, these guys make [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jehqcH4AHWM Team Rocket's theme]] threatening with what sounds like a harmonica.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XU5HA85pbg 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 done on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emYWGtADH_s N's final battle theme.]] It's exactly as awesome (or even more than) as you think it is.
* There's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cG94THdALKE vocalized remix]] of Slateport City by Hiroko Takano, making an already awesome track even better.
* An amazing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7Y6ifEDXLI vocal remix]] of Johto's Violet City theme.
* Reorchestrated versions of 35 themes from Red and Blue. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YP4k9Doza9E#t=35s Vs. Trainer]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVwlFKk62yE Pallet Town]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCPpvFH1fgg Opening]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMAxKeciEoA S.S. Anne]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lHjAxeylYQ Vermilion City]] and more. We weren't prepared for this.[[note]]Fuchsia City is misspelled as Fuschia City, though...[[/note]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2xQjkC49VE obligatory Lavender Town remix.]] The fact that nearly every comment on the video is positive (on youtube, no less!) reinforces how good it is.
** These tracks are made by a single YouTube remixer, [[http://www.youtube.com/user/skotein Braxton "Skotein" Burks,]] whose orchestral remixes are so awesome, they actually resulted in [[http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2012/10/pokemon_reorchestrated_kanto_symphony_released_into_the_wild a licensed, official album.]] Which is a well deserved result. [[{{HSQ}} Go on,]] [[YourHeadASplode have a listen.]]
** Even ''[[ApprovalOfGod Junichi Masuda himself]]'' [[http://tmblr.co/ZkA9NxXu0J-a loves it!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLv1EAqcvJFuG-CMLxveY7eNEcse3xXm1a Now on Youtube!]]
* Another game by Game Freak called ''VideoGame/HarmoKnight'' has a few bonus levels set to Pokemon music, namely the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkmXg0x2ssw Gym Theme,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDubqyoQehc Route 26]] from Gold and Silver, Gold and Silver's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cd1851D4txw Bicycle theme,]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzVqA2QoeO8 the Champion theme]] from Red and Blue. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sz9mqnIVro0 The battle theme]] from Black and White also shows up unedited.

[[folder:Fan remixes]]
* Ever wondered how Unova Route 10 would sound in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations''? No? Well, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHQNpFzbaTI here you]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFraDENdphw go]]!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdzKOaEB93c 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nj2LMOBAaO0 This insanely awesome remix]] of ''Red''/''Blue''/''Yellow'''s Champion theme.
** Also, the epic [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBwbuAhzOEk metal remix]].
** There's also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSP_XkifFZw 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkjhKf9ZusU This remix]] of the Kanto Gym Leader theme. Bad-ASS.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ma7dck8bx00 Kanto's Route 4 on the ocarina.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhvZvYxoWo0 This remix]] of Kanto's Route 26 and 27.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e61zCy-giHg This remix]] of Cerulean City.
* [[http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/327161 This remix of Red/Lance's theme]] from ''Gold''/''Silver''/''Crystal''.
** And this [[http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/328239 final version of that remix which loops.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIvON5Y5038 This remix]] too.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hn6Hp_NSMAw This]] orchestral remix too.
** There's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKf7gyarcCU this]] fan mix with the ''Black and White'' soundbanks, which gives the tune OminousPipeOrgan.
** And yet [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-rs-bRdnYA another amazing fan mix]] from the Japanese hack, ''Pokémon Golden Sun'' (a hack of the ''[=FireRed=]'' and ''[=LeafGreen=]'' games).
** There's also [[http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/55493 this great remix]], done by [=TheGimpsta=] on {{Newgrounds}}.
** Also from Newgrounds, [[http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/242175 this remix]] by bob3rt puts its own spin on the classic track.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buifCKc9RNU 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42zZY4QzMi0 This orchestration]] of ''Crystal'''s Raikou/Entei/Suicune theme.
* This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_ZBI3Xf0eU 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: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcmrDJvXyGU 1]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRoMN39I99k 2]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dAC0bwwgyo 3]]. It absolutely FLOORS you. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFbG8qHXfJ4 This video]] has the download link for the full version.
* A [[http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/74838 fantastic remix]] of the RSE Champion battle theme was made by [=TheGimpsta=].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLCWeBNlUQo This orchestral remix]] of the Sealed Chamber does wonders with the melody.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBoqE35_4z8 This remix]] of the Abandoned Ship is beautiful.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cX9FvUYNQPs This remix]] of the Cyrus battle theme.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utyq_Jg3ekU techno remix]] of the DPP Game Corner.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTzq5m8pVNs This awesome remix]] of the ''Platinum'' Frontier Brain theme.
* This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-8MI-3Dp6w EPIC]] remix of the Distortion World.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYQfWZ8vuiE This remix]] of DPP's Rival battle theme.
* This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_kTRWuoB0c remix]] of Opelucid City from ''Pokémon Black''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJqQ4AvznaQ This 8-bit remix]] of ''Black'' and ''White'''s Legendary battle theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wp1RN1MuZK8 This Altru Tower remix]] is amazing.
* Try [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EG9c9GwQSK4 this awesome chiptune version]] of Miror B.'s theme from ''Pokémon XD''.
* Ladies and gentlemen, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3I0oYAra-0k Driftveil City Rock!]]
* There's also this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1pS0O9uzp0 beautifully flowing remix]] of Sootopolis City's theme.
* Mewtwo's theme from ''Stadium'' still sounds quite good in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5z5tLMEV1c new soundfonts.]]
* [[http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/524232 "Battle!]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uS5dS-lq9Hc 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]].
** And this version of Ho-oh from salvation by faith records is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACeRZSfSJ8M EPIC.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1z_uxEkGcU Unova League theme]]. It's bit ominous but it makes feel the place more... grande, more ultimate.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFSumDS8Zfk Drought]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dl0RI6Rfw3k Drizzle]] remixes. Try sleeping well after hearing that.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqIYbSlpMqw B2W2 remix of Hoenn Pokémon theme]]. Everyone aboard S.S. Hoenn!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pq6RYOHMxP0 A show-stopping cover]] of [[Anime/PokemonJirachiWishmaker Make A Wish/Chisaki Mono]] cover by Cocolu.
* The entirety of Pokemon Reorchestrated, which which is exactly what it sounds like. [[http://www.youtube.com/user/skotein/videos?view=0&shelf_id=2&sort=dd Listen for yourself here.]] "Viridian Forest" and Through Time and Space" are some of the better ones.
* Blazaking's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jj-4Wr14bT0 Celestial Towers of Heaven]], a remix of the Celestial Tower theme from the Unova games.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Games/ROM Hacks]]
* ''PokemonPrism''[='s=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfgGsJPHaSM wild Pokémon battle theme]] is surprisingly good for a romhack. Also, the two versions with the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYqGiwm9CcQ HG/SS]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJy8jA4phrc soundfont]] are terrific.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jezALidoZRE Gym Leader battle theme]] for ''Prism'' is simply ''amazing''!
*** The ''astounding'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tal4se2U51U HG/SS soundfont remix by [=SuperiorLarxene=]]] also deserves a mention, as well as the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLIc-4e069Q grand orchestrated arrangement by GRonnoc]] (the original composer of said theme) and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibk3Rp_taYo Cat333Pokemon's remix]].
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQwR5nNSgHE Cave Theme]] composed for ''Prism'' is a nice leisurely tune to stroll along to. There's also a different take on the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHX_pjPxNi0 Cave Theme]] for the game.
** ''Prism''[='s=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMjXeiiwnSs Trainer/Rival Battle theme]] is another fantastic track. Bonus points regarding the marvelous [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ROnjc2oFyY HG/SS soundfont version]] of the theme.
** The neat [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMNgtMCE8D0 Pallet Patrol Encounter theme]] for ''Prism'' should be very familiar to some players; it's just so [[MightyMorphinPowerRangers morphinomenal]].
** There's also the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxtEY2Yej1c main introduction theme]] for the game, which is actually a rearrangement of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6B26asyGKDo "Everyday" by Carly Commando]].
* The fan game ''Pokemon Garnet'' from [[http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=197142 Pokecommunity.com]] has its own fair share of nice music as well composed by [[http://youtube.com/tobinus Tobinus]], most of which are currently tentative:
** The game's wonderful [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYhyCubDOWM 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7lNVw5Z7Zs 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvOH-VLK_KI 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:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvf09B0tvL8 "Cosmic Mind", playing in the Gyms of some versions,]] prepares you for the (possibly grueling) fights against the Gym Leaders.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DaFB-qBhS34 "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]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cU95GcbglSo "Ultimate Truth in Lavender Town"]] turns a climactic song into something utterly melancholic, fitting for a town (in)famous for its graveyard.

[[folder:Original Fanmade Songs]]
* [[http://churchofthehelixchoir.bandcamp.com/ 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 ([[http://churchofthehelixchoir.bandcamp.com/track/all-terrain-victory "All-Terrain Victory"]]) and the battle between the protagonists of Red and Crystal ([[http://churchofthehelixchoir.bandcamp.com/track/godslayers "Godslayers"]]).
** Speaking of LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemon, Tai Reflections made [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYb8ux67W2E a good contender for an anime OP.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgsHyPSoX-Y Not to mention KANIPAN's Japanese cover...]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rK2S5xzNCQ 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.
* [[http://www.collegehumor.com/video/6935996/updated-pokerap-with-all-718-pokemon Update Pokerap]] by Website/CollegeHumor. All 718 Pokemon. Nine minutes of hilarious rapping.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4E_MScTXuo 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ouyBW0WQZyw 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. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcNEjahxd2g Gyarados]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnB9pxkTvlg Dragonair]] were among the few of these songs that were made publically available.
