The Pokémon series has spawned many a notable Ear Worm, whether it's the music playing during a heated Gym Leader battle or the carefree cycling jingle you hear as you cruise down Cycling Road.

For the anime, see [[EarWorm/PokemonAnime here]]. See also AwesomeMusic.{{Pokemon}}.

* The first Ear Worm that you hear upon picking up a main series Pokémon game is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdJQopRuH1E the very theme that greets you every time you turn on your game]], i.e. the opening and title themes. The latter also became [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRIHZz_QlAQ the theme that plays during a Gym Leader's final gambit in the 5th generation games]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIQ0O5MaPP4 Yellow opening]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1KVDI7vbEM Gold and Silver opening]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUAksh2lkKM Gold/Silver/Crystal title (Crystal's merely lacks the first few seconds)]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Exjw2-G2ZHw Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald opening and title]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XBmgAp_PlgI FireRed/LeafGreen opening and title]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLt6KzC61f8 Diamond/Pearl's]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtBmhETy7C8 Platinum's]] opening and title themes. Platinum's title variant does indeed give off a Metroid-esque vibe, and both title themes are equally ambient.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AacLweROE0g Heart Gold/Soul Silver]]
* The Pokémon Center theme, which has been in every main series Pokémon game to date. While it changes very little between installments, it still manages to be a very addicting piece of music. It served as the Poké Mart theme for the Generation I games and its remakes, and also gained [[http://zeldapower.com/downloads/mp3/ssbb2/Pokemon_Blue_&_Red_-_Pokemon_Center.mp3 a remix]] [[MundaneMadeAwesome for Super Smash Bros. Brawl]].

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zh-OusXq_00 Colosseum/XD (essentially the RSE Pokémon Center theme with different instrumentation)]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqnLgVA7Xsc Diamond/Pearl/Platinum (Day)]]

* One under appreciated but very catchy theme is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HB_8g1twbYU the print error theme from Yellow]], which has been remixed as the Pokéwalker theme.
* No mention of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHxPVXfMjk4 Johto Gym Leader theme]] from G/S/C?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=863v-VfdBZA Boyleland]] from ''VideoGame/PokemonRanger: Shadows of Almia''. Anyone who tells you they've heard a more catchy calypso song in a video game is ''lying''.
** We just may have found a new contender for that title in the form of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRvPIKbtv6k Undella Town's Summer-only theme.]]
* The theme in ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon: Red Rescue Team'' when you're doing the character quiz in the beginning or dreaming about Gardevoir.
** Oh god, the music when you wake up and meet your partner in the morning and get the mail. Sticks to your BRAINS, man!
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKMWMS7O50g Sky Tower.]]
** Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Time and Darkness gave us [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4b7BYar8j_w&feature=related Primal Dialga's theme]].
** Blizzard Island. It's even in both games!
* All the surfing themes tend to be rather catchy. Same goes for the Game Corner themes, though depending on who you are, you may not hear them as much as others do.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKuMJGM8SFQ&feature=channel_page The standard-issue Trainer battle theme from Gold and Silver]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZzN9_lifMM OREBURGH CITY]].
* The original ''Red/Blue'' version had some pretty epic music, such as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OO5VAKk0d8 the Gym Leader Battle Theme]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWrXj30tM94 Gary's Theme]]. You know you started humming them before you even clicked on those links.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1-VyHIx_SY Goldenrod City,]] especially in the UpdatedRerelease.
* Show of hands, who else gets the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxU2UjAjN24 R/B/Y cycling music]] stuck in their head every time they ride a bike?
* While we're at it, let's not forget the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpm3AAg8Ktc R/S/E Gym Battle theme]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTNgiLmjuZo The R/S/E Trainer Battle theme]] and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Lj16YwWrHk wild Pokémon battle themes]] are pretty awesome as well.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhfJO366AM4 Leaf Green/Fire Red Champion theme]] anybody?
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQtjCXTh4rc]] Only if you mention the ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Pokémon Black/White]]'' rendition shortly afterwards. Sadly, it [[LongSongShortScene gets virtually no screentime.]]
** Um, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNza29u5zMY the]] ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNza29u5zMY original]].[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNza29u5zMY version]] from ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue R/B/Y]]''?
* ...None are speaking of the 'fro's (Miror B.) themes? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAHHFc-gIeI Shame upon]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuhqoZvyntA you all.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIAJM75e-Ss Fighting your rivals in Black and White]].
* Route 113 theme: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfARFF9S5Jg Let the Soot Route fill you with happy thoughts.]]
* ''Black/White'' gave us the likes of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVONYx7UD2w Driftveil City]] and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJLW1aXLkTg new bike theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G83kCxcLhhQ The music that plays when someone makes you walk somewhere with them is very ear worm-y]].
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9x1KWP9Apc Route 111]]''. That song literally would not leave for the longest time...
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9KNs7SXfMI Giratina theme]]''. Simply the most awesome music in D/P/Pt, and one of the best songs of the series.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pO7lwU68x8k A wild Kyurem appeared!]]
** Not that the other two members of the Tao trio are sloppy in the musical department either - though they lack Kyurem's awesome slapped bass, the fire and lightning effects in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3fEDc_4GhA Reshiram's]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VWPSYbJ6tI Zekrom's]] themes (respectively) add a particularly awesome twist to the whole thing.
* And finally, who can forget [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cneztcvUMcY Ghetsis's battle theme?]]
** Want to know why? [[spoiler: [[OminousLatinChanting DEEEEEEEENNIS.]] [[{{Mondegreen}} DEEEEEEEENNIS.]] [[MemeticMutation DEEEEEEEENNIS.]] [[OverlyLongGag DEEEEEEEENNIS.]]]]
* ''Black/White'' takes the "Low HP" theme from OH GOD STOP IT to an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHItAqaW_EA ear worm!]]
* The Deoxys battle [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w12R_PmXHEM theme.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wO--XvfnS2Y Weather Trio's]] battle theme by itself.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyoUVJ95CRg Frontier]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRP8vRpL8ks Brain's]] theme, from Emerald and Platinum, respectively.
* Y'all disappoint me! [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVImEZA_4a0 What about Hoenn's Victory Road, arguably one of the best tracks from those games?]]
* WHAT!? NO [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCjdGn2CXAQ&feature=related FINAL BATTLE THEME FOR THE EPIC N?!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=259C4AaOHn0 Accumula Town]] in Black/White. Perfect music to hatch eggs to!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50cPOgYCLXw The Wild Battle music]] from BW has been reported to make people stop using Repels.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EVQvbMnluA Cyrus's battle theme]] is incredibly earwormy. Mmm... bassline...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yw06i-Ljoh4 Whether you're up, or way down low, don't you miss the Lucky Number Show!]]
* Although it may be creepy, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNJJ-QkZ8cM Lavender Town]] has one of the catchiest themes ever.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFnJ-UN48vU G/S/C Gym theme]]. It's reminiscent to the anime's gym battle theme.
* The ''[=HeartGold/SoulSilver=]'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNaahr-w2KQ variant of the Champion Theme]], as well as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWokB4Ec5Og its original incarnation]] in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Gold/Silver/Crystal]]'' are both insanely hummable.
* The Entire Soundtrack of ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Black and White]]''
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6z_1cCvVjA Arceus]] battle music from [=DPPt=] was one of the creepiest tunes when it first came out years ago.
* The "Peril" theme from Pokemon Ranger 2. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PreG_YPjLk Good luck getting it out of your head.]]
* So, got this far without seeing the R/B/Y wild Pokemon battle theme, eh? [[OhCrap Well repel just wore off...]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrS523dOHU4 A wild Earworm appears!]] Made even better [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkYCsVIRi2Q in their remakes.]]
* Seriously? No [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcOIQwqCl7s R/S/E champion theme?]] I'm totally ashamed.
* You forgot [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s73ykA3NY94 Slateport City]]. It's a catchy song(for me at least, but I'm sure I'm not the only one)!
* The original [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=om0xoAvlmRo Burned Tower]] theme from Gold/Silver.
* How did we mention every champion theme but not [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whX6TVUDF-E Cynthia's]]?
* The Cargo Ship/Oil Field Hideout theme from Pokémon Ranger:Shadows Of Almia. Nananananana, nananananananana...
* D! O! G! A! R! S! DOGARS!
** P! O! K! E! M! O! N! POKéMON!
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pO8px_88HZU Rock theme]] from [[VideoGame/PokemonConquest Conquest]]. The epic drums only serve to lodge it further into your ear.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_cIRAtcDWw Colress]]'s theme.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0RPh9dBefc BRYCEN-MAN!!!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fg7obS4xWtE Team Plasma battle theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGMf-72v7bo Team Galactic Battle theme!]]
* How can we forget about the legendary [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXv7DjdasHI Route 1]]?
* Here's another one; what about [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VECSVhFh_y8 Laverre City's]] music in Games/PokemonX and PokemonY? It was absolutely beautiful, and it sounded just like a mystical fairy town covered with toadstools should. Further improved by the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bIA8biF0Kc mysterious music]] in the surrounding bog.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIq_ENEHRfA Village bridge.]] A beautiful calming song with several instruments weaving in and out. It's quite easy to lose half an hour just listening to it, followed by half a year trying to stop hearing it.
* This Troper has specifically loaded up Diamond/Pearl just to listen to Mt. Coronet's theme on long walks [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hASaRRCwgc Mt. Coronet's Theme]] on long walks
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocYgD2CrG28 Spear Pillar's theme as well]]
* Let us not forget R/S/E/OR/AS [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwRT2Gey7n8 Mt. Pyre's]] Haunting theme
