[[AC:Main series]]

[[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=_LK8lOPxvtk 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=CUnPnQzIL-Q HeartGold/SoulSilver remix]].
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jL2vM32-b1A Ruby and Sapphire]]''[='s=] and its remix in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYm-ybpiwl8 Colosseum]]''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMwxF-vqQDc The orchestrated remix]] in ''Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire'' is a truly grandiose song.
** In Pearl and Diamond, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_s4ilFzmHs an unused track in the game is the theme.]]
* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Diamond and Pearl]]''[='s=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLt6KzC61f8 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=CudEQjPKSNs 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=tFC8xLYNCcY title theme]] itself is great as well.
** ''Black 2 and White 2'' version also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KwyG9HhwHA 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=j1lpJF2KFgI 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=UH7YJGheDUU Trainer battle Theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjA4SgVDmh4 The Rival's Encounter Theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnTHU8F8_m0 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=TC3C7PjUzis Cinnabar Island]] theme. Kinda makes you feel like you're walking on a low bit beach huh?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfJSY72gpWU 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=5kiKM2f2j_o 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. And since you hear it only once in the game, you will MISS it.
* 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=x5BYQf4q49U 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=zvE7jSiV59c The Hall of Fame Music]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biLeC5D4S48 The music that plays inside the Pokémon Gyms]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmJrn24tZyE 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=iMyDrhNf2t0 Celadon City]] and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqGEL64BiXU 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=aPKfaoGyYx0 Vermilion City,]] best described as "departures, arrivals and goodbyes" in musical form. Taken UpToEleven in ''Gold and Silver''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rj2Tsp_DVM 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=o09AO8OH8BU Route 30]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZarvXCld42w The champion theme]], which [[RecurringRiff borrows from RBY's main 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]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1ud5-glY6M Professor Elm's Lab]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFwXt1PAEOg Rival Trainer music]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PK1yjBgxgho The Rival Trainer's leitmotif]] is just as good as the first games' rival's theme. If not better.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZJMSZGzo7Y Johto Trainer Battle Theme]]. ''GSC'' managed to make the second most-heard theme in the games epic.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGuuR0kQIgg Johto Wild Pokémon Theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvkYZSrwgjQ 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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XNCDv-PbFU#t=178 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=LG0-UMOljBU Violet City/Olivine City Music]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46LXLha2FEY 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=AOZL3kkCUBQ Team Rocket Hideout]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWsLm7mND1k 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=D0j9AOEhzO8 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=IgVA5wqmskg 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=oBx4pEiNJ7Q 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=-1KBQTGSDFA 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=mlhA6i7Ynd0 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''.
* Pallet Town once again. You have all 16 badges, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9bDN_aZvNI you're heading down Route 1]], and you know exactly what music is coming... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaK564p5ksc and it's still awesome]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gY47oNWC7q0 The S.S. Aqua]]. You've just beaten the champion, Professor Elm has given you a boat ticket, and then you're on your way! To...
* [[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=iG2NROjPUdg R/S/E Elite Four theme]]
* The Champion's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-NylYukMv4 battle theme]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mcTV77e1TY encounter theme]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Knsvxnihk1A victory theme]] all qualify as awesome tracks.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcERfBtAS9E 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=g8hmfdAzDes 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}}''.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97STwclAPrQ Trick House]] theme, and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJFapb-CC_A vocal version]].
* [[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=148DtdZn3wI 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=AdTgSwO_o0Y 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=h7uhGk494uA 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=6KBHPh8VVow The Battle Frontier theme]] from ''Emerald'', particularly the opening few notes. The whole thing just screams "triumphant."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqDcd9-Ov6o The Frontier Brain battle theme]] is no slouch either.
* The individual battle facilities in the Battle Frontier all have their own themes, some of which stray from the rest of the soundtrack, and all of which fit in well with their respective motifs.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4IVJ4S9s7I Battle Factory's]] is very techno-y.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYjatnkBcEw Battle Arena's]] has a medieval Japan feel to it.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bv8SwSzQ7Ss The Battle Dome's]] gets you fired up to WIN.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cp5LU6YM5fM Battle Pike's]] is more seedy, more antsy. Fitting for trying your luck in a huge Seviper, hoping that darn Kirlia won't jump you and poison somebody on your team.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ojuXMtt9dw Battle Palace.]]
** Between the Egyptian and ancient temple themes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-zuHOcsWBo Battle Pyramid's]] definitely says "Pyramid adventure".
** And then there's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iA7QFVy7fCA Battle Tower theme]], a slower version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIhwjacXUVI the Battle Tower theme from Ruby/Sapphire]].
* 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, shared with Lavaridge 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=kU4UYsKsMmM Team Magma Appears!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1f8k0WQJjbY Team Aqua Appears!]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8p93ra1ZAKs Team Magma/Aqua Hideout theme]] is much more "stealthy" than the Rocket Hideout themes from before.
* 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=Wkgh4CgYSYk Petalburg City]]. This link here is 7 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=NChkATzr9P4 "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=Mp8cQ5Ob3oE Rival Battle Theme]]. For the first time that the player's rival is friendly, this theme is both upbeat and epic at the same time!
* 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=Hhks9l_oFjo 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=qHBpU_K9Zuw 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]].

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w12R_PmXHEM Deoxys theme]], which is also in ''Emerald''.
* The Sevii Islands bring us some fantastic remixes of music from ''Gold and Silver''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fm7HjS747mM Four and Five Island]] use Azalea Town's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQxXjR0bEMI Six and Seven Island]] have Violet City's, and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaNP4mWg7Vo other areas]] feature a stunning rendition of Route 42/Lake of Rage.

[[folder:''Diamond''/''Pearl''/''Platinum'']]

* On the subject of Platinum: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37G8nBsVLwQ Looker's theme]] is pretty awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIAlVDLZJ_k 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=K3l2H2uIb94 before the fight]] is also epic.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjDQ4po2nDQ Gym Leader battle theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnootczJj_0 Pokemon League Building.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLyZVUTUUoM Elite 4 battle theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owghgsl_z5o Game Corner.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-NHrwJgWzM Route 209]] is also a lovely theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0Fg9xtjFxk Eterna Forest.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bU44Yk659qo Sunyshore City.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NALkdPuHDQ Route 216.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8UkrNo4k2s Route 210.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhmygATFpLI Mt.Coronet.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZzN9_lifMM Oreburgh City]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t03CRBZS7p8 Hearthome City.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_4nBxJY5kM 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]]. Suitable, considering that you're fighting ''God''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0AwE8EjpDs Route 201]] just gets stuck in budding Pokémon Trainers' heads.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvCboyezCWw 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=q1El90M5ucA 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=Db07wCTqQoE Stark Mountain.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecL2DZjfujM Rival battle 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=V1ClpGPA3gU Listen to it.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKerdWYF1SU Love it.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOyhL1D3AKs Battle Tower]]
* The Battle Frontier in ''Platinum'' brings an array of awesome tunes: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbY3k-qRHXM The main theme]] (a lively variant of the Fight Area theme from '''Diamond/Pearl''), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vt-H7vCQDy4 Battle Arcade]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMKDvuhAjXA Battle Hall]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UE7c-e78WSU Battle Factory]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKBERjQATjo Battle Castle]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMvQguyIRfs Platinum's Global Trade Station theme]]; the electrifying tune somehow gives a sense of the wonder of trading Pokémon all over the world.
* The Wi-Fi Plaza from ''Platinum'' had a trio of happy themes:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47wZTjhYCnk The main theme]] is very celebratory, as if to say "Look--20 people in one room! Let's party!".
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xvJ8Q_Osz8 The minigame theme]] is short, but it goes well with balancing a Mime Jr. on a ball, or tossing berries into a rotating Swalot's mouth.
** And then [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JWretABYKE the parade theme]] sends you off. "Thanks for coming!"
* If you get an audio system for your villa in Platinum, it plays [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLBoO9bFggA this bossa nova version of the Lilycove City theme from ''Ruby/Sapphire'']].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JJy3SWa53g 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=87ROZP4oiRY Fisherman/Sailor]] theme.
* The Legendary Pokémon theme. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_VZqw8O79U Backwards.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHk6bNwL6Iw Sandgem Town]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAKZZYNb8YI Jubilife City at night]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZaa0LqKY6w 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wdc4SgpLTXs Veilstone City]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqnLgVA7Xsc daytime Pokémon Center theme]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWIXdXK3mnA And at night]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YttM306ltqc Regis' theme]] gets an upgrade in ''Platinum''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOmznKTv74M The Acuity/Valor/Verity Lakefront theme.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6c99c4HKq8 Spear Pillar theme.]]
* Hidden in the data of the games, there is a remix of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-FmpHf8a0I Main Theme of R/S/E]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mxb7chtXGBE music that plays outside of the Pokemon League]] as well as its [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dzZl8ge1z0 more soft nighttime equivalent]] are both beautiful pieces that perfectly capture the feeling of having traveled so far and grown so much. It really makes you feel proud of you and your Pokemon.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:''HeartGold''/''SoulSilver'']]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWHH-xKblfY The Kanto Trainer Battle Theme]]. ''[=HeartGold=]'' and ''[=SoulSilver=]'''s version combines the ''G/S/C'' mix with the ''FR/LG'' one.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CdFY4uhvPs The Kanto Gym Leader Battle Theme]].
* The [[TearJerker very sad]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAtwILDVDvo Cinnabar Island Theme]], and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmTDyEwHvzA GB Sounds Version]].

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJc4EtPpOys Viridian Forest]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HMHjvm11Gk Route 26 and 27]].
* ''HG/SS'' has an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUW7flClhCU 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=2bDoPFtUghM and it's something else]].
* The music that plays in Cerulean City. Let's face it; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhnHXZXO5oE this is awesome]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6v20qnqcXY Pokémon Center Theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJilgu88qd0 Route 1]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2V_3UnD7PLc 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=8k-GfaXf1cM Celadon City]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8_knSu-96c Indigo Plateau/Pokemon League]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D42gg3KJrUc The Battles with Lance and Red]]. An incredible remix that's simply ''outstanding''.
* The legendary dogs ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xWt-6dPPWQ Suicune]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYpyuwQ7GnA Entei]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnmcbzY5lFw Raikou]]) each have great themes in their own right, but, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjRvrZDO-W4 when you combine them into one...]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxOeaT1iZDk Rival Trainer Music]] (and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEo81L-d9l4 his leitmotif]]).
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7wMJVMQglk Johto Trainer Battle Theme]]. Holy CRAP!
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CAhIhUAdEI Johto Wild Pokémon Theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4ikNyO_6a8 Johto Gym Leader Theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WB1nJq5V828 Goldenrod City]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjtZ4EXIZM0 The Game Corner]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tg02vD5FL70 The Bell Tower]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSI3sjAl4tE Azalea Town/Blackthorn City]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-FghdZaKEA Battle Frontier theme]], an awesome remix of the Battle Tower Theme from ''Crystal''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DyLm--tG68 Inside the Battle Tower]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zuy1JpkWeos Team Rocket's Theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6r_kTc_BRhY Team Rocket's Hideout]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAnBYBGEif0 Dark Cave]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLxJX3BZBjk Ho-Oh Battle Theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOg2wd18ifI Lugia Battle Theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffHTUTDw3cQ Summoning Theme]] for Ho-Oh and Lugia (Dance of the Sacred Beasts).
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOQNtBSketA Ho-Oh]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44ED4-wlN28 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=mVy9StVMI_4 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=4ql2ljSivV8 Professor Elm's Lab]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qU9FnTBtVyE Route 29]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfpZSvKbavY National Park Theme]]. The piano... It helps that you [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/6/6d/HGSS_National_Park-Morning.png see]] [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/0/01/HGSS_National_Park-Day.png one]] [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/d/d2/HGSS_National_Park-Evening.png of]] [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/c/c1/HGSS_National_Park-Night.png these]] every time you enter.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcx5kYZwrA8 The Bug Catching Contest Music]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9r0NQaAYf-s Eusine's Leitmotif]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wV8TpG-5ZYI Dragon's Den]]. The remake is even better than the original.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niH72ICTrTc The Route 42/43/44 & Lake of Rage Music]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6fRI0ivct0 The Route 38/39 Music]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVWV9pVySHs Lighthouse/Mt. Silver]].

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yK_04g6dOw Global Terminal]], and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8kG9r-6aL0 GB Sounds Version]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gETi7V9DalA Poké Mart]], and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TG4JCDuOGw GB Sounds Version]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gld3DgSqBXk Clair's Leitmotif]].

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndNV1sqvAX4 Safari Zone]], and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr12uwuza3s GB Sounds Version]].
* ''[=HeartGold=]'' and ''[=SoulSilver=]''[='s=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stW9D4xerO8 intro]], which also qualifies as a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome. In one minute we have: Gold and Silver's intro music, New Bark Town, Goldenrod City, Burned Tower, and the Rival and Eusine's leitmotifs.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHnJWAELi3A Team Rocket Battle Theme.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMFtAR-sCEM Surf Theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqFoduDsZLs Sinjoh Ruins!]] Otherwise known as ''[=HGSS=]''[='s=] remix of the top of Mt. Coronet from ''[=DPPt=]''. Missed out on Arceus's theme in DPP? Good news; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGs-ZSyBykQ it plays during this event!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TE-h_c723TA Kyogre/Groudon/Rayquaza's Theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdoWXh8iJis 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=mA99piAdURw Castelia City]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvnhLLtyRVo Lacunosa Town]] is nice and soothing.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFnEIAct8yo 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=Y8OTqnErCuY this.]]
* The battle themes for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tObYNbbAIw0 Reshiram / Zekrom]] / [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKk8ac0Qd1o Kyurem]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28caQQxNhA4 Final N battle]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZCbK4G44S0 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]]. And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaNbEYXDbKU Bottled Emotions]], an awesome dubstep remix of Emotion.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktqqE5cmE8M 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=fgIdLnSua5k N's Castle Bridge/Carrying Out a Mission]]. Very reminiscent of ''Pokémon Mystery Dungeon''[='=]s music.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTYGWMQ3tOs N's Castle]] itself is somewhat reminiscent of ''Castlevania'' music.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o20vpORCWdI 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=MgNLbrr91Fs Normal Trainer Battle]] is ''epic''. Not only that but it's [[EarWorm surprisingly catchy]].
** And the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XlFDZbv5J8 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=D3Biw2hvjas The Team Plasma Grunt battle theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2rcrJuuAws To Each Future]], the credits theme, is amazing.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLsK1s-LW1Q wild rare/double battle theme]]. Comes out of nowhere, but still awesome.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xErbwLnZCk 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=Nbw3fEJf52I 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=wuP7OiEkmKc his room.]]
* Speaking of ''Mother 3'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJ4DJOTLgRQ 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=bzl2NH8Y6b8 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=kt-ZzBeDHQs Route 10]]. You half expect to bump into Boney.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFTaJObsFU4 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=W3kqLhOuzu0 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=qx0LAwus_FQ EntraLink]]. Sounds more like an epic background theme from ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' than one would necessarily expect.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gd59xXJnEyo Global Terminal]]
* The Mystery Gift Theme from ''Platinum'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGGBdNhTI80 got an awesome remix]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4UzfflGLyw Unity Tower Theme]] is well-suited for a place where people of all nations come together.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zj2N_SxWocQ Relic Castle]] has some amazing, soothing music that reminds you of VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_53X-Q9hudI Accumula Town]] sounds extremely great, but it gets even better when you talk to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTnZqMpWttY the drummer and the pianist]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6Cm71PdX24 Gear Station]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77Zs5X2CYXw Anville Town]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rl6A4oGpOSw- 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=CxNX7cu2dhs The Champion/Subway Boss Battle]] music is upbeat, triumphant, and a ''major'' EarWorm.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0QBsx4Kh38 Victory Road]] is pretty much finality and epicness distilled into musical form.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENoJKeEsn2c 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=eXfZvspL_1k The Diving/Abyssal Ruins Theme]]: calm, mysterious, and soothing.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aAdV6odngo 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=G4N8a08SVtk Skyarrow Bridge.]] Words can't do it justice.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Hp1hmaieQ4 The Rival Battle Theme.]] Quirky and catchy.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chpOepM5T4E Cheren's Encounter Theme]] isn't bad either.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwmw51sz7Vc Black City]], and its counterpart, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvXmOyV8gqc 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=nDNqwdjCGBQ 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=YumklTd4PIk Battle! Kanto Champion]], used in the finals of the Pokemon World Championships, is a remix of... guess.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywsD20Z5gYo Pokémon Center Theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuO9laf6wiY "Carnival Pokemon" Musical]] is an awesome remix of the original Pokemon Center Theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyLGb01JCBs Cynthia Battle]], a good contender for "best Pokémon theme to make the player say 'OhCrap'".
* [[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=p5nURvmomlw Looker's Theme]] gets an upgrade, and almost doubled in length.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnZsZRidG1o Encounter! Gentleman!]] is an EarWorm.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PY3_Um4cFIs 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtjIinGQckk Professor Juniper's theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CV_2u6EDx6c Route 10.]] Perfectly captures the feeling of having come so far, yet Team Plasma remain.

[[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=WIDKIJspfZ8 Aspertia City]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRzefBoQ_9A Floccesy Town]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IJsv3ai89M Virbank City]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7bDMFqKwhM 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=IcEXRFifp6E Team Plasma's aggressive and relentless battle theme]]. It really shows how much Team Plasma has diverged.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbHnkCxeruM Colress' upbeat]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1DWNsV2rYA techno/electronica themes]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MidAwsj_eMg 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=prgSj65ZUX4 Black Kyurem / White Kyurem]]. A dark, menacing theme for a suped-up legendary that ain't going gently. Also, no Master Ball for you.
* N's new [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vhXXRW5ZB0 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.
* The already creepy music in N's Room [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UotxHL9aHWs gets even creepier]] as the castle falls into disrepair.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-g2q-B6ba6A Iris' Battle Theme]] is so made of ridiculously awesome, it's not even funny.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WZLOBACOHk 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=kPlf5vi1hJw 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=SNsUdqCzNa8 DOGARS!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YDFsbun8vU 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=EvCeBftVcbA Driftveil Gym's theme]] has a distinct "underground" sound to it and fits the setting quite well.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEDIFDx2EfY 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=QWZlUAsvDTE 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=zBpQDMzAVHQ 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=VlQKaJLbapE Black 2]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3spgpNu24R4 White 2]] are quite enthralling in their own ways.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3A8R-73f35s Route 19]]
* 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUazbZ1tqW0 Pokemon World Tournament]]
* ''Pokémon World Tournmament'' features lots of older characters, and remixes a bunch of themes for that!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ULAKv3O4mc Vs. Blue.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOy7cJowbQs The Kanto Gym Leader battle theme.]]

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ovk70GzTby8 Sinnoh Gym Leader Battle.]]
** The [[http://youtu.be/goTcv5abttI Tournament Final Round theme]] sounds like something out of ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1X4D4ADksc Revamp of the Unova Gym Battle.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMCiYEZlR8s N's battle theme]], a remixed version of his regular battle theme from Black and White.
* Hugh's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ik5UZ-t73IY Encounter]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCMfikmlR3k 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=RQYbdx5kL6A Floccesy Ranch]]
* [[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=Nr4kMPovkLU 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=a7iagMkU6DA Team Plasma, Again]] which in the beginning of the game even temporarily replaces the normal overworld music. The beat in the beginning makes it perfectly clear: Team Plasma means business.
* [[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=SoO-q-KfQoU 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 in a similar way.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4CiRfFaHcI The Sun Shines Down]], [[spoiler: [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments 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=-JgsNk_Z3yg 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 Poké Ball 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=6Qhd3_un89M Super Training]] and [[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.
* While you're likely to only hear about 7 seconds of it because the path is ''so'' short, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdXVP9mresI Route 1 music]] is a great way to start your journey.
* 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, is spectacularly tranquil and almost seems perfect to accompany a session of Pokemon-Amie.
* [[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=HKWViaDyEUI 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]]'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:''Omega Ruby''/''Alpha Sapphire'']]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pYO0aHmez4 Wild Pokémon Battle]] theme gets an energetic remix.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFE4QBZjkkU Trainer Battle]] theme gets updated with some string instruments.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPbl6o9mGEs Rival Battle]] theme gets an awesome remix.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91tODLXipK4 Gym Leader Battle]] theme is MUCH better than the original version.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dA3mccI1DjY Archie and Maxie's Battle]] theme initially sounds like a straight update of the original song with its menacing piano and trumpet, before suddenly shifting into an intense song with multiple trumpets and electric guitar.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjltP8GISJE Elite Four Battle]] sounds just as good, if not better, than the original.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aBUtsIw7-w Emerald Frontier Brain theme]] returns in all its glory, now used as the theme of the four Battle Chatelaines.
* Wally finally gets his own [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9sX_54hHcEE Battle]] theme when you face him at the end of Victory Road, and it sounds like it came straight out of ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'', ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' or ''Franchise/{{Ys}}''. The best part is that the theme actually ''flows right into the battle!'' In addition to that, he also gets a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXxfXJS0Xsw very upbeat version of his theme]] that is played at Mauville City and in Victory Road.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9hs6oAYRyk remix of Groudon's, Kyogre's, and Rayquaza's battle theme]] certainly doesn't disappoint. Then there's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DLmy1J1zhM remix Primal Groudon and Kyogre get]], which actually samples the theme from the original Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jiDgi4BN7aE Regi Trio's battle theme]] gets another intense remix that also samples the original theme in the beginning.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdwXEOJqKOo Abandoned Ship]] gets two wonderful remixes, the second playing for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W35Dzi_g-iE the Southern Island]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjPZjWd2SJk Slateport City]] manages to sound even better than the original.
* The Delta Episode offers a fantastic update of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8LZruXvong Deoxys's theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BL-O0OfhzMM Heavy Rain]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4vdxypeLxU Drought]] themes make their triumphant return, sounding just as creepy as ever. To quote Youtube on Drought:
--> In the original Ruby I thought everything just got really bright and that Hoenn was only a bit hotter than normal.
--> Now the fucking sky is on fire.
* To fit with the expanded presence and characterization of the villains, a couple of new encounter themes were added, which set the mood for a confrontation perfectly. The admins have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keImZ9AKnwA this]], while [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKSt2YcT4aI the leaders]] get a [[InvertedTrope calmer remix of]] [[BossRemix their battle theme]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oc44myRhNRM Their battle theme]] is a much more intense, orchestral version of their original theme, and it's awesome.
* Those who played Emerald may find that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTQD2sIlrzA this track]] gives them an odd sense of deja vu. [[spoiler:And then it hits you - it's a remix of the same track that's played [[LongSongShortScene when Rayquaza comes down to quell Groudon and Kyogre's fight]].]]
* The many variations of [[http://youtu.be/_jQWyBu3THQ The Heirs to Eternity]] (Zinnia's Theme), including her [[http://youtu.be/GIn8_Q27WFY Battle theme]] and [[http://youtu.be/v7joCXpQ6z4 The Lament of Falling Stars]], which plays [[spoiler:when she tells how she would look up to the sky to stop her tears from falling]].
* It may not be what most would call bombastic or epic, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQsB5cfzf_4 the Surfing theme]] is beautiful, equal parts "exploring" and "relaxing" with an aquatic-techno sound to it.
* Another truly beautiful and relaxing theme is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DtwTX_G8J8 Soaring Illusions]], which plays while Soaring at night; perfect for flying through a starlit sky on the back of a legendary Pokémon. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lo0xgizRRyc Soaring Dreams]], the daytime theme, is rather appropriate, too; really gives you the feeling of adventuring in the skies.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BtIz40YN5E Lisia's theme]] is absolutely upbeat and energetic. Quite a fitting song for Hoenn's biggest Contest star.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuSM_krLYME The Dive theme]] is incredibly relaxing and really makes you want to just stay underwater forever.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBPTlOu7CD0 Encounter! Diver]] is likewise relaxing and almost ethereal; it's probably one of the series' best encounter themes.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ci9zlWJQHY The music]] that plays in the post-credits scene is a beautiful remix of the rival encounter theme that really captures the bond between the player character and the rival.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SUxLbfx-tw Coexistence]], the song that plays [[spoiler:during the scene after Groudon/Kyogre is defeated/captured, where Team Magma and Team Aqua decide to overcome their differences and coexist peacefully.]] An excellent new addition to the remakes.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyfVyiI_fRk The Lilycove City theme]] is back and as beautiful as ever.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ughuvHfGz1c Oldale / Lavaridge town]] theme has gotten even more soothing and heartwarming now.
* Behold [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGhEaTjqMWA Mt. Chimney]] and its funky rhythm guitar!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpkGXyCHvDI The desert]] is no slouch either, and is now even groovier.
* Those who played Red and Blue years ago might shed a few tears when visiting the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exutnZKmZ50 Oceanic Museum]].
* The best [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZk5emrpiCw villainous trainer victory theme]] so far can be heard here.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1TpA7aGzJY The encounter theme]] for Delinquents and Street Thugs is just plain epic.

[[AC:''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=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."

* 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.]]

[[folder:''Pokémon Trading Card Game'']]
[[AC:First game]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgMHWxN2U_w The Club Master battle theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0dstwhnilc 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=eSxYGnZCf4g 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.

[[AC:Second game]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hiMT85TthI 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]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0l7yDmyRHo Battle Royale theme]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5POManaoQE Mewtwo's theme]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonRumble''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEBeX6__0ms Pokémon Fort Team Battle]] from ''Pokémon Rumble Blast''. That guitar...
* ''VideoGame/HeyYouPikachu'':
** The [[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'':
** [[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]].
* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonTrozei Pokémon Battle Trozei]]'' has some pretty epic tracks, particularly [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEPlvC2dgMg the boss music]].
* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonTrozei Pokémon Shuffle]]'' has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48-7MTCsocA this standout track]] play whenever you face another trainer and their Mega Pokémon. It probably won't play for long, since there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yy569ekVLVc an entirely different song]] for [[BackgroundMusicOverride when YOUR OWN Pokémon Mega Evolve]] [[MoodWhiplash that is completely different in tone.]]
* As you might expect, ''Pokemon Box: Ruby and Sapphire'' has a batch of remixed songs from ''Ruby/Sapphire''. They're not huge departures from the originals, but most of them have their own bit of awesome: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoV9KO5R_-k Title Screen]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WmP-1tCRHk Bridgette (Fallarbor Town)]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYCtPxwzaz8 Arrange Boxes (Pokemon Center Theme)]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbojHSUwPFU Party (Come Along)]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kACi89Ge8dA Gym]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pi5_IW9Keow Hall of Fame]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TD46lHGlbVw Slateport City]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwF-Mnr4Ipg Oceanic Museum]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OiR_KOIGUPc a music box arrangement of the Pokemon Center theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUaJTl1hZc boss battle]] track from a ''typing game'', of all things, is absolutely fantastic.

%% 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 this 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").

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNUoMjNtoA0 2.B.A.Master]] soundtrack. It's full of beautiful character songs, particularly "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hHL_9YGCQw Misty's Song]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyauzxPeKPw The Time Has Come (Pikachu's Goodbye)]]".
** Special praise goes to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KCwiRj2c4k 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=-QOI8zK2Rx8 Viridian City]]", sung by Jason Paige, the same guy who did the original dub theme song.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fc9g1y25lww "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!

[[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=yfz9HzGJlHk 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=g-H5suXZsZY "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=hNUoMjNtoA0 Extended version]]. "Come with me, the time is right..." The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6WB82qEtKs Instrumental/Karaoke version]] isn't bad either.
** [[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,]] and [[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]] 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=95WvgGRPoCA The X/Y dub theme]], a cool slightly-abbreviated remix of the ORIGINAL theme. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3CUPRHBhtc And here's the Full Version.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFo4SbPD8qo V (Volt)]] and its remix [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QAhfVI_MSI Mega V (Volt)]] start out with the singer chanting out all eighteen Pokemon types, which is repeated after the chorus, and then there's the instrumental section in the middle of V (Volt). ''Man''. What could make it even better? How about the fact that V (Volt) is the song that plays whenever one of Ash's Pokemon evolves in the Japanese X/Y series?
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYZVfAYPODo How 'bout a Rica Matsumoto version?]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7HcWt0upNw "Mad-Paced Getter"]], the second Japanese opening theme for ''Pokémon the Series: XY'', stirs up quite the craze.

[[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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_U6ZxljBrI Big Meowth Day]], an ending theme from the recap show ''Pokemon Sunday''. If you've ever wanted to hear Meowth singing about surfing, this song has you covered.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pokemon Live!]]
For those who aren't aware, there was a very short lived Pokemon Musical! And they did broadway versions of some of the songs from the anime while adding a few of their own. And it was awesome!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLQa5No6a2U My Best Friends]] a three part harmony between Ash, Misty, and Brock. For those who love the original anime, this is an awesome version of the song!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ki0jg8sbLyc The Time Has Come.]] Remember the sad song about Pikachu leaving forever? Yeah, they remade it.... and it is sung by Ash himself. And his voice is ACTUALLY GOOD!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnjT2TqKQYs Everything Changes.]] Instead of it being about Pokemon like in the original show, this version is a duet between Professor Oak and Delia about how Ash is growing up. So, it really hits home for any parents out there.
* The fact that "Everything Changes" gets an EVIL REPRISE sung by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16Ags_XE9jI GIOVANNI HIMSELF!]]
* Giovanni has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mocsc_BsAdI HIS VERY OWN VILLAIN SONG!]] He is voiced by Darren Dunstan, who later voiced Maximillion Pegasus from ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' You can really hear hints of Pegasus when he sings.
* For those who didn't like the somewhat strange vocals in the original version of Misty's Song, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzGTkG88mN8 they changed it to a power ballad.]]
* The song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqBZjPFewSA I Got A Secret]], a duet between Ash's mother about her [[spoiler: previous relations with Giovanni]] and Misty's [[spoiler: secret feelings for Ash]]. It's especially good when Ash joins in about wanting to be the best man he can be.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STePUlH1ScM Double Trouble]] may not be as cool as its original counterpart.... until ya find out that James was played by a younger version of Tony Award Nominee Andrew Rennells!
* This version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9O3H8baHJlk Two Perfect Girls]] is what the original version should have been!
* Team Rocket gets a song about how they fail at their job.... and then to precede to get on board with the idea that they are the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgDZUY4Vg9Y Best At Being the Worst]]. If ya like the idea of Team Rocket doing a Tango, then there ya go.
* Take the final confrontation between Ash and Giovanni.... have them in a FIST FIGHT.... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=petsdXjRN4w DURING A KICKIN' FINALE SONG!]]
* Let's just say the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfAi-T-S1Ts The Whole Soundtrack]] is awesome. The Stage Director has even uploaded the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSYx8LSzZZI Instrumentals]] to all the songs. So now even you can sing them!
[[/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=O6TWUjtbb9E 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=jMFeCHqzSqQ 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=6YEpQ8j3404 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=JUQgxEAfLyc Cross the Sea]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7j90pHhZgf0 I Got a Pokemon]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pwa7_GeQP8U I Did It!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTJrmc-RXzo Johto Rival Battle]]
* 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=o8cY6fQ0O3Q 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...
** The big symphony version at the end of the movie, where Lugia (with Ash on his back) and the legendary birds are flying around amongst all these other Pokémon...
* [[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=uEC7tPPKAXQ "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=wakzjgR28j0 ~~Capture On~~]] from the 9th movie.
** Also: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edoZy0Qx-LI 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=A72KuWizWYs 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=sSEkhMjL4eI 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=j6bTSAS_Yts 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=KfoSvOUZZjo 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=ukR58btmBr8 This song]] from Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMGA-zWyNpQ 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=np8e56Z6pGk 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=ZHJa_om2nyk 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.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClrcZr3gjSw remix]] of the original title theme from ''Pokémon: The First Movie''. GAH.

[[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/playlist?list=PLF9147B29848B42B6 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 also 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.

** [[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!]]

* The Nintendo Special Big Band [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvdMr_bKC_c did an especially awesome Pokemon Medley]] at a 2014 concert.
* 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.
* As for Pokemon Origins, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXxehrtZXiI trainer battle theme]] remixes the original anime version and makes it more badass.

* 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.

** 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.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/327161 This remix of Red/Lance's theme]] from ''Gold''/''Silver''/''Crystal''.

** [[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.

* 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 (arranged by Braxton "Skotein" Burks), 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/GlitchxCity GlitchxCity]] has a lot of remixed music, much of which belongs on this page. For instance: Giratina's theme + [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsDreamDropDistance L'Impeto Oscuro]]=[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_t10vb_3yGk this.]]

[[folder:Fan Games/ROM Hacks]]
* ''VideoGame/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.
* ''VideoGame/PokemonZetaOmicron'' had some custom made tracks which really fit the atmosphere and sound generally awesome.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsfHQqkFKAs The Legendary Theme]] sounds great, despite it not being heard for long, due to it being a wild encounter Pokemon.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=beGxp0p7ChA The Evil Team Leader's Theme]] has a very climactic vibe that makes you want to pummel the evil team leader.

[[folder:Original Fanmade Songs]]
* [[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.youtube.com/watch?v=iRM0-FT0tUA 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.
