Main series

     Pokémon Title Theme 



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.

  • This game outfitted Miror B. with a funky-fresh, disco-riffic battle theme, perfect for groovin' to.
  • XD's Cipher Admin battle theme!
  • The 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 awesome battle theme.
  • The Phenac City takeover music, officially named "Cipher Command." At first you just think, "Hmm, the music is a little different." It's certainly not worse than the original, but something about it just doesn't feel right... and then the theme suddenly gets progressively more sinister until it comes to a positively demonic crescendo... and then it loops back and goes back to the pretty, serene theme that it was at first. 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 Cipher Peon theme.

    Pokémon Snap 

    Pokémon Trading Card Game

  • This track 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 Pokémon 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" Pokémon game music track; it was likely just composed in the style of such game music. Nevertheless, it sounds awesome, perhaps fitting for a wild Pokémon or Trainer battle theme. There's also a terrific "triumphant" remix of this theme.
  • In commemoration of the release of Pokémon Black and White, The Presidents Of The United States Of America (the band) performed "Can't Stop (Catchin' 'Em All)", an awesome List Song about, most of the Generation 5 Pokémon (essentially the closest thing that exists to an "Unova Pokérap").

  • In honor of Pokémon X and Y, Pogo produced the song "Catchatronic". It was also made in commemoration of the 2013 return of the "Gotta catch 'em all!" slogan to U.S. advertising for the Pokémon franchise. The song uses numerous audio samplings from various episodes of the Pokémon anime, notably the "Gotta catch 'em all!" voice clip(s) from NOT the first dub theme song, but actually the freaking ORIGINAL POKERAP (compare the 'Gotta Catch 'Em All!' from the remix to the said Pokerap). The mix sounds simply phenomenal. GOTTA CATCH 'EM ALL- POK-E-MON!
  • The "Ash pulling an awesome win" music from the first season.
