[[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]]. 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=jL2vM32-b1A Ruby and Sapphire]]''[='s=] and its remix in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYm-ybpiwl8 Colosseum]]''.
** There's an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNfXP_DEk6k uncompressed MIDI version]] of the original hidden in the obscure game ''Pokémon Box: Ruby & Sapphire''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMwxF-vqQDc The orchestrated remix]] in ''Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire'' is a truly grandiose song.
** In ''Diamond and Pearl'', [[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.
* 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]] is a great update to the classic.
* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Sun and Moon]]'''s [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvKtHflrQdI title theme]]. It's just as magnificent as ever, and appears to take characteristics from every generation's title theme, with some chanting added at the end for good measure.

* The wonderfully calm [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOWRNLaCMJg Pallet Town]], where it all began.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjA4SgVDmh4 The Rival's Encounter Theme,]] an instantly recognizable theme that tells you everything you need to know about your Rival's character.
* [[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.
* Aaand... the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrS523dOHU4 very first wild Pokémon battle theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgdBcvzcQNY Viridan/Pewter/Saffron City Theme.]] This music is classic!
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TB-xa6CChA Pokémon Center Theme]]. What an EarWorm.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UH7YJGheDUU Trainer battle Theme]], a classic that re-appears every generation.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmJrn24tZyE Viridian Forest]] is damned creepy! And so addicting...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biLeC5D4S48 The music that plays inside the Pokémon Gyms]], another classic that gets you pumped up to fight the strongest trainers.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnTHU8F8_m0 The Original Gym Leader Music]]. Awesomeness on a stick. You knew it was time to get serious when you heard it.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rj2Tsp_DVM Mt. Moon]], the franchise's very first cave theme.
* [[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.
* The happy and energetic [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpPWNOhJtqs Cerulean City]].
* [[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=aPKfaoGyYx0 Vermilion City,]] best described as "departures, arrivals and goodbyes" in musical form. Taken UpToEleven in ''Gold and Silver''.
* 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxU2UjAjN24 The Bike Theme from the original R/B/Y games]]. It's so unbelievably catchy...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bRctqZpTM8 Route 11,]] the seaside boardwalk famous for tying Lavender Town, Vermilion City and Fuchsia City together. It's also famous for the awesomely carefree feel embodied by its BGM.
* [[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]], simultaneously saddening and damned creepy.
* [[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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kiKM2f2j_o Team Rocket's Hideout]]. The true theme of Team Rocket?
* The one, the only, the original [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUTW3hJx52U Surfing tune]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwyjgQgYo68 Silph Co.]], which is, in a few words, creepy, chaotic, and totally awesome.
* 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]], an amazingly tense and atmospheric song that helps set the mood as you pick through Mewtwo's backstory.
* 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://youtube.com/watch?v=5I3Cm9necF0 The League Champion Theme]]. After conquering the Elite Four, your Pokemon are exhausted after four long and difficult fights, but one final challenge lies ahead. Your rival awaits for the ultimate battle, and this theme underscores both the tension of the moment that all of your training has led up to, and your Pokemon's determination to push through the pain and score one last victory.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvE7jSiV59c The Hall of Fame Music]]. So simple, so iconic, it got brought back in every main series game.
* 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.
* Even a song as basic as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMqEtddtSbs the Printer error theme]] in ''Yellow'' is surprisingly cute and catchy.

* [[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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1ud5-glY6M Professor Elm's Lab]], a lighthearted song which tells you everything you need to know about the scatterbrained professor.
* Your Johto adventure begins with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxqHQ9nOZcc Route 29]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o09AO8OH8BU Route 30]].
* The Johto Wild Pokémon Theme:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGuuR0kQIgg By day]]...
** ...and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NlG-uj4GMnQ by night]]. [[GoddamnedBats Hoot hoot!]]
* 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=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''.
* 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=LG0-UMOljBU Violet City/Olivine City Music]], a moody piece which contrasts nicely with the more upbeat Kanto city themes.
* [[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=ZvkYZSrwgjQ Johto Gym Leader Theme]], an intense and driven boss theme.
* The music used in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbcjFvXGXYQ Azalea Town/Blackthorn City]], setting a laid-back atmosphere for Johto with its "[[Music/GeorgeMichael Last Christmas]]"-esque tune.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46LXLha2FEY Team Rocket's Battle Theme]], combining just the right amount of intensity and sliminess.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1-VyHIx_SY Goldenrod City]], perhaps the best town theme EVER.
** 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 exciting and addictive [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWbUtdx827g Lucky Channel/Game Corner Music]].
* The soothing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XjouKSkSeM National Park Theme]], serenity in audio form.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4P4b_YTNC7c The Bug Catching Contest music]], a remix of the first-gen Bike Theme.
* ''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=SMZ_8tL9TxM The Route 38/39 music]], EarWorm material in the best possible way.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSa_TGbJjCg Eusine's Leitmotif]] from ''Crystal'' really captures his energy to find the Legendary Dogs.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMzC3RpYHGg The Route 42/43/44 and Lake of Rage music]] is just incredible.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOZL3kkCUBQ Team Rocket Hideout]]. For when you want tension in your cute {{Mons}} series.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5Z3642mwt0 Team Rocket Radio Tower Takeover]]; so catchy, it basically got shanghaied into being Team Rocket's BootstrappedLeitmotif.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWsLm7mND1k Dark Cave]], awesome enough to make you WANT to go in there. Also played in the [[FrictionlessIce Ice]] [[SlippySlideyIceWorld Path]], making it less [[BlockPuzzle tedious]].
* From ''Crystal'', the franchise's first--and memorable--wild legendary theme music: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8Pgfp4JYW0 Raikou/Entei/Suicune Theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HA9Ws-_iCEw THE. TIN. TOWER.]] Almost impossible not to like this.
* [[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]]. Wandering through a [[AnticlimaxLevel challenge-less, empty cave]] has never felt so epic.
* 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=ZarvXCld42w The theme for the battle against Lance/Red]], which [[RecurringRiff borrows from RBY's main theme]]. One of the best final boss themes in video game history.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nU263Ud3LM4 Credits Theme]] sticks the most out of all the tracks in the game.
* [[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?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgVA5wqmskg The Kanto Trainer Battle Theme]]. Because the original wasn't enough of an EarWorm already.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTC_B8E7a84 Kanto's wild battle]] theme makes encountering Rattata seem like a legendary has arrived.
* The Kanto Gym Leader theme. Dear Lord, as awesome as the ''HG/SS'' version of this song is, [[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]] is the perfect song for revisiting old haunts.
* 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]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChIF8RW_b2Y Battle]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytMr1MDPSPw Tower]] Music is happy, yet still gets you pumped up to fight.

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

The SNES-like audio for the GBA did wonders for the music of Pokémon, and the whole soundtrack doesn't disappoint. Plus, you can experience those [[MemeticMutation glorious trumpets]]!
* The laid-back cheerfulness that is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=im6tbN9SZXs Littleroot Town]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zf9rqmkXCFA Route 101]] is yet another great first-route tune.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Lj16YwWrHk Wild Pokémon Battle]] theme is a great showcase of the [=GBA=]'s qualities compared to previous hardware.
* One of the cheeriest tracks in the soundtrack: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZ5HREsFcUg Oldale Town, shared with Lavaridge Town]].
* 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Y0zo3CxroI Friendly Shop]], the Poké Mart theme. So awesome, it's appeared in every game since ''Emerald''.
* The rival theme, both for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJTV7kVTe5M Brendan]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=148DtdZn3wI May]]. Variations hint at slight differences between the characters.
* 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!
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTNgiLmjuZo Pokémon Trainer Battle]] theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wkgh4CgYSYk Petalburg City]]. This link here is 7 minutes of upbeat pleasantry.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOoqKHz_D0w Route 104]] is a fantastic piece for the first beach you see in the game.
* 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=g8hmfdAzDes R/S/E Gym Leader Theme]]. It's perhaps one of the BEST battle themes the series has!
* The Gym Leader victory theme in every Pokémon game is super-happy, but [[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=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=l0yo32iVGA0 Slateport City]]. One of the best town themes from the series.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXDpynALaFM The Oceanic Museum]], a remix of the S.S. Anne theme from the first generation.
%%* As with all other route themes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKW-reR_jUQ Route 110]].
%%* 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=e2MgCTyU8bw Mauville Game Corner]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gexTc0YbYx8 Cycling theme]] is so unbelievably happy and fast paced.
* [[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=wfARFF9S5Jg Route 113]] from R/S/E, an utterly amazing track reminiscent of "Snowman" from ''VideoGame/{{Mother}}''.
* 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=oY6ZwstAUnM The Mt. Chimney/Sky Pillar music]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9x1KWP9Apc Route 111.]] Almost made the endless sandstorm damage in battle worth it.
* 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=sFU8mrXb9LY Abandoned Ship]] had some great music. Sad, considering the place was never really plot-important.
* [[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=jcERfBtAS9E Route 120, one of the most epic route themes in the series.]]
* 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.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEtlhq1PxI4 Mt. Pyre (Peak)]]
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2ut8s2hdSc Lilycove City/Pacifidlog Town]].
* 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=8p93ra1ZAKs Team Magma/Aqua Hideout theme]] is much more "stealthy" than the Rocket Hideout themes from before.
%%* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9vqvfxoRBg Diving theme]].
* [[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=i7SrUYEKMOg Regirock, Regice, and Registeel's battle theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4_tiCzlGGM Archie and Maxie]] Battles are under-appreciated.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdTgSwO_o0Y Heavy Rain]] is excellent for the situation, tense and ominous.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzeGusU8z_s The Drought]] puts [[MemeticMutation Lavender Town]] to shame.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSYUacOWP8w Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza's battle theme]]. Those first five seconds tell you SHIT IS GOING DOWN.
* [[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.
* 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVImEZA_4a0 Victory Road]] from ''Ruby/Sapphire'' is worth a listen.
* 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.
* 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.]]
* 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KBHPh8VVow The Battle Frontier theme]] from ''Emerald'', particularly the opening few notes. The whole thing just screams "triumphant."
* The individual battle facilities in the Battle Frontier all have their own themes, some of which stray from the rest of the soundtrack, and all of which fit in well with their respective motifs.
** [[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.
** Between the Egyptian and ancient temple themes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-zuHOcsWBo Battle Pyramid's]] definitely says "Pyramid adventure".
%%** 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]].
%%** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ojuXMtt9dw Battle Palace.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqDcd9-Ov6o The Frontier Brain battle theme]] is no slouch either.
* 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]].

%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7H6Opt94-Rs Power Plant/Pokémon Mansion]].
* 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.

%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhfJO366AM4 The Champion theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTASi6CR04g The FireRed/LeafGreen end credits]] is even better than the original, containing nods to the Team Rocket, Pokémon Center and Pallet Town themes.
%%* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w12R_PmXHEM Deoxys theme]], which is also in ''Emerald''.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0AwE8EjpDs Route 201]] just gets stuck in budding Pokémon Trainers' heads.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4F2_QMD7M2k The Trainer Battle music]] is a real EarWorm, in a good way.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAKZZYNb8YI Jubilife City at night]].
* On the subject of Platinum: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37G8nBsVLwQ Looker's theme]] is pretty awesome.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZzN9_lifMM Oreburgh City]].
%%* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjDQ4po2nDQ Gym Leader battle theme.]]
* 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]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIAlVDLZJ_k Route 205]] is a great and upbeat theme. Sets the mood for adventure.

%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t03CRBZS7p8 Hearthome City.]]
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-NHrwJgWzM Route 209]] is also a lovely theme.

%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wdc4SgpLTXs Veilstone City]].
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owghgsl_z5o Game Corner.]]
* The encounter themes are usually sped through after three seconds or so (barring Cynthia) but if you listen to them they're often extremely good. For example, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87ROZP4oiRY Fisherman/Sailor]] theme.
* [[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=1NALkdPuHDQ Route 216.]]
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhmygATFpLI Mt.Coronet.]]
%%* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6c99c4HKq8 Spear Pillar theme.]]
%%* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zpITTJiw7Q Dialga/Palkia battle theme.]]
* The music for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLn9WlR_A80 the battle with Team Galactic leader Cyrus]] might be even better than that of his subordinates.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALbsX5oXHc8 Dialga and Palkia's battle theme]], a fast-paced piano and techno remix of the Spear Pillar theme that really drives home their [[OlympusMons Legendary status]].
* [[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=EfFqkIsn88U Platinum Giratina]], which is both bombastic and utterly chaotic, fitting given Giratina's nature.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOmznKTv74M The Acuity/Valor/Verity Lakefront theme.]]
* [[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.
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uD4zs_xaFBQ Lake Trio's battle theme]] is amazing, having a great mix of a frantic melody, constant background bass, and loud drums making the song sound both tense and grand.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bU44Yk659qo Sunyshore City.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mxb7chtXGBE music that plays outside of the Pokémon 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 Pokémon.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnootczJj_0 Pokémon League Building.]]
%%* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLyZVUTUUoM Elite 4 battle theme.]]
* [[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.
* Do ''Diamond and Pearl'' have the best ending themes? Ehh, well, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C05_abrtlBM judge for yourself]].
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5IP77Rs6I0 The theme for the other legendary Pokémon battles.]]
* The Legendary Pokémon theme. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_VZqw8O79U Backwards.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YttM306ltqc Regis' theme]] gets an upgrade in ''Platinum''.
* [[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!
* 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=Db07wCTqQoE Stark Mountain.]]
* 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'']].
%%* [[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]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_4nBxJY5kM Platinum Frontier Brain theme.]]
* [[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!"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rDY46QS-pA Arceus' theme]] is unlike any other music in the game. Unfortunately, [[DummiedOut it only plays if you hack an unreleased event item]]. Suitable, considering that you're fighting ''God''.
* Hidden in the data of the games, there is a remix of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-FmpHf8a0I Main Theme of R/S/E]].

%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tg02vD5FL70 The Bell Tower]].
%%* 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=eOg2wd18ifI Lugia Battle Theme]].

%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8_knSu-96c Indigo Plateau/Pokémon League]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D42gg3KJrUc The Battles with Lance and Red]]. An incredible remix that took the most epic song in the entire series and some how made even MORE EPIC. A song that is simply ''outstanding''.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pSO2uxida0 The Hall of Fame Music]].
* 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=7mQ0RI1Xo8k The S.S. Aqua]]
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DuvOxWuisU Vermilion City]].
* ''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...
* [[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]].
* [[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."
* The music that plays in Cerulean City. Let's face it; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhnHXZXO5oE this is awesome]].
* 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]].
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8k-GfaXf1cM Celadon City]].
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RntDa2oef0 Route 11]].
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJc4EtPpOys Viridian Forest]].

%%* [[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".
* 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]].
* 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=7yK_04g6dOw Global Terminal]], and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8kG9r-6aL0 GB Sounds Version]].

* [[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' theme in DPP? Good news; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGs-ZSyBykQ it plays during this event!]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOtjMKSE2vc The Pokéwalker theme]], an unexpected but welcome remix of the Printer error theme from ''Yellow'' and the originals.

[[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=4Hp1hmaieQ4 The Rival Battle Theme.]] Quirky and catchy.
* In the old days, low HP would be met by [[MostAnnoyingSound an annoying siren sound]]. Now it's been replaced with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8OTqnErCuY this.]]
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtjIinGQckk Professor Juniper's theme.]]
* [[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]].
* 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.
%%* The music played during [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZCbK4G44S0 your battles against N]] throughout Unova.
%%* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywsD20Z5gYo Pokémon Center Theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgNLbrr91Fs Normal Trainer Battle]] is ''epic''. Not only that but it's [[EarWorm surprisingly catchy]].
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XlFDZbv5J8 remix]] that plays in the Battle Subway, for techno fans.
** Here's both of them [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLW9xfMLex8 together.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chpOepM5T4E Cheren's Encounter Theme]] isn't bad either.
* 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=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=D3Biw2hvjas The Team Plasma Grunt battle theme]]. Say it with me: ''PLASMAAAAA!!! ''
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLsK1s-LW1Q wild rare/double battle theme]]. Comes out of nowhere, but still awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4N8a08SVtk Skyarrow Bridge.]] Words can't do it justice.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mA99piAdURw Castelia City]]. Welcome to the big city!
* [[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=sYAoD710Dxo Nimbasa City]] has the most epic city theme ever.
* [[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=g6Cm71PdX24 Gear Station]].
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77Zs5X2CYXw Anville Town]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuO9laf6wiY "Carnival Pokémon" Musical]] is an awesome remix of the original Pokémon Center Theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aAdV6odngo Alder's Theme]] may sound out of place in a Pokémon game, but is still very catchy and enjoyable, and it fits his character well.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uYY3_GCTts Driftveil Drawbridge]] is eerie and yet very calming at the same time, a good accompaniment to hunting for feathers.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YZ1ouxhzaM Driftveil City]] is a very infectiously upbeat song, fitting for a bustling mining town like Driftveil.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENoJKeEsn2c Route 6]] has some pretty awesome music.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFnEIAct8yo Mistralton City!]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xErbwLnZCk Surfing Theme]], which reminds many players of ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}''.
* [[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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDNqwdjCGBQ Icirrus City]] has a peaceful and cheerful melody that can't help but make you smile.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yk40Zrcn-Ns Dragonspiral Tower/Giant Chasm]] is a beautiful piano piece that sounds like someone crossed the Light World dungeon theme from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' with the present-day overworld theme and the forest theme from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger''.
* [[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.]]
* 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), 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]].
* 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0QBsx4Kh38 Victory Road]] is pretty much finality and epicness distilled into musical form.
* 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."
* [[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.
* The music in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuP7OiEkmKc N’s childhood room]] – a slow, creepy music-box tune.
* The battle theme for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tObYNbbAIw0 Reshiram / Zekrom]]. A combination of regal elegance and electrifying/fiery waves of power that signal that these are important figures you're fighting. There's also the similar yet hollow-sounding version for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKk8ac0Qd1o Kyurem]], which sounds like it's missing a good amount of the regal felling harmony, but also adds to the drums and bass line, [[{{Foreshadowing}} almost as if the two songs were meant to be played together...]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28caQQxNhA4 Final N battle]] and [[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=8bgl5t7UFlg Enter Ghetsis]], attacking his son with the most abusive words you are likely to hear in a Pokémon game, shortly before he attacks ''you'' with a Hydreigon.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktqqE5cmE8M Ghetsis Battle Theme]]. '''[[OminousLatinChanting DEN]][[{{Mondegreen}} NIS!]]'''
* 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2rcrJuuAws To Each Future]]. While other credits themes tend to be more subdued, ''Black'' and ''White''[='=]s is amazing and upbeat, giving the impression of a SequelHook that [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 eventually became a reality]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5nURvmomlw Looker's Theme]] gets an upgrade, and almost doubled in length.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PY3_Um4cFIs Marvelous Bridge]]. Truly marvelous. And also a bridge!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnZsZRidG1o Encounter! Gentleman!]] is an EarWorm.
* [[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=WuwwN4Y1AMw Route 11]] has music that is very fitting for a postgame adventure.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTn8k6TAFX0 Undella Town's]] spring/autumn/winter music.
* [[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=eXfZvspL_1k The Diving/Abyssal Ruins Theme]]: calm, mysterious, and soothing.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvnhLLtyRVo Lacunosa Town]] is nice and soothing.
* 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.
* [[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=YumklTd4PIk Battle! Kanto Champion]], used in the finals of the Pokémon World Championships, is a remix of... guess.
* 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.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQZffuFkVl4&t=3s Route 6]]'s theme, which brings the ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' theme to mind with its majestic horns.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxNX7cu2dhs Alder's Battle Theme]] is triumphant, to convey the fact that you are facing the Champion of the Unova Region, ''properly''.
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLVr0VfeLmk Critical Health music]] used during this generation is just fantastic, not only for being a song that makes you feel the tension of having a member of your team low on health, but also for turning CriticalAnnoyance into something that doesn't make the player immediately turn the volume off.

[[folder:''Black 2''/''White 2'']]
* [[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=WIDKIJspfZ8 Aspertia City]].
* 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=3A8R-73f35s Route 19]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRzefBoQ_9A Floccesy Town]], with calliope and bells working together to make a soothing melody.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQYbdx5kL6A Floccesy Ranch]] – a very bouncy, entertainingly goofy-sounding tune.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1X4D4ADksc Revamp of the Unova Gym Battle.]] It adds instruments where none was there before, making for both a calmer and more intense battle.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IJsv3ai89M Virbank City]].
* Black 2 and White 2 have given the Gyms their own variations of the traditional Gym theme (save for Cheren's Gym in Aspertia City, which gets the standard theme carried over from the original Black and White), and that manages to make running through each Gym battling its Trainers and Leader all the more exciting. Here's Virbank Gym's take on the theme. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNsUdqCzNa8 DOGARS!]]
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJnEnO0JXuM Brycen-Man / Full Metal Cop theme]] in Pokéstar Studios.
* [[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=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, carrying a fashion-show theme to fit its supermodel Gym Leader, especially when Elesa herself makes her ridiculously awesome entrance - at which point, the traditional Gym tune kicks in, only with part of the same soundfont heard in [[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou "Dancer In The Street"]][[note]] (Heard when fighting Pig Noise.)[[/note]] thrown in as a ShoutOut for good measure.
* [[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=EUazbZ1tqW0 Pokémon World Tournament]]. Entering this place fills you with a sense of welcoming and preparation.
* ''Pokémon World Tournament'' features lots of older characters, and remixes a bunch of themes for that!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOy7cJowbQs The Kanto Gym Leader battle theme.]] A bit calmer than in ''[=FireRed/LeafGreen/HG/SS=]'', given you're fighting these people, Giovanni included, in a much friendlier environment. It can still get one's blood pumping.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ULAKv3O4mc Vs. Blue.]] Intense is one way to describe it, being more aggressive than in ''[=FireRed/LeafGreen=]''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udMA8Y-bFm4 The Johto Gym Leader battle theme.]] Kind of calm compared to ''HG/SS'', but it illustrates you're only fighting them in a friendly environment.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fif3hgY9PNQ Welcome back, Red (and Lance).]] More serious and triumphant when you're tying your hardest to overcome living legends.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvuSBcWQ0A4 Hoenn Gym Leader Battle.]] Serene and sweet, despite being more intense in RSE and their remakes. Perfect since you're not being tested and you're more fighting for fun and glory.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlzoG6l8TiY Hoenn Champion Battle.]] Two powerful trainers in Steven Stone and Wallace. It's more intense compared to ''RSE'' and makes a fine precursor to ''[=OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire=]'''s version.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ovk70GzTby8 Sinnoh Gym Leader Battle.]] Surprisingly faster-paced, and heart-pounding compared to ''[=DPPt=]''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXzhN9TXd74 Sinnoh Champion Battle.]] Welcome back, Cynthia! And your theme has become just that more aggressive as you try fighting the player on equal footing.
** The [[http://youtu.be/goTcv5abttI Tournament Final Round theme]] sounds like something out of ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''. It illustrates jut how far you've come in the tournament, and this is your moment to shine! This does get overridden by the Champion Themes.
* [[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=-7bDMFqKwhM Lentimas Town]], with a very Latin feel to it.
* 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=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.
* 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]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qyiQfV-eMQ Marine Tube]], an energetic, yet calming song that makes you feel as if you are really underwater.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SlQeWy-Hz7U Humilau City]], with a tropical feel to fit the city’s sunny beach-side location.
* [[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.
* 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=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.
* [[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=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 creepy tune as his old one. Seventeen seconds in, it goes for a BaitAndSwitch and becomes much more joyful sounding, probably to emphasize his character development.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MidAwsj_eMg Ghetsis' Theme]] gives off the vibe of [[VillainousBreakdown just what he's going through.]] Now with more [[{{Mondegreen}} DENNIS!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jTjfkzfbwg Route 23]]. A very fitting pre-Pokémon League theme, and it even features a ShoutOut to the theme in Professor Rowan's laboratory at the very beginning of Diamond, Pearl and Platinum.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-g2q-B6ba6A Iris' Battle Theme]] is so made of ridiculously awesome, it's not even funny, with a high-energy cheerfulness to it that matches [[GenkiGirl Iris]] perfectly.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZENq90Z5fs The ending theme]], a wonderful song that concludes a wonderful adventure.
* [[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.]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zS_iUQDFJV4 Black Tower Challenge]], a fast-pacing, happy-sounding theme, but with just enough minor chords to remind you that you are facing [[BonusDungeon Unova's Challenge.]]
* 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=oMCiYEZlR8s N's battle theme]], a remixed version of his regular battle theme from Black and White.

[[folder: ''X''/''Y'']]
* 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.
* [[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.
* This [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPKyW20sLOY piece]] of adorable music will give you the strangest urge to skip around merrily on Route 2.
* [[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=yIHCBhBMc28 The Santalune City theme]] really gets you pumped up for your first gym battle.
* When you face the new Gym Leaders in their awesome, unorthodox gyms, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkZkbbfOEdM their theme]] is appropriately awe-inspiring. Heck, even the electronic instruments turn the volume UpToEleven.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=193o5Tx40sk Encounter! Poké Fan]] does suit the cheerfulness of the Poké Fans.
* [[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 Pokémon-Amie.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utTEqUaf8lQ Sina and Dexio]], a friendly and cheerful theme for Sycamore’s friendly and cheerful assistants.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3VDa3ycb98 Professor Sycamore's theme]], which has a very French vibe.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Qhd3_un89M Super Training]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvoq6Yj2-xY Secret Super Training]]. Both tracks wouldn't sound out of place in medieval fantasy [=JRPGs=].
%%* [[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=d_zCZhrwuMA Route 8's Theme]] consists of an orchestra so grandiose it would make ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' proud.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSQwFk_jJvY Encounter! Female Swimmer]] is such a big EarWorm.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyqr_B6x7uE Team Flare Appears!]] Slow and sinister. Just like how they just walk up to you and threaten you for interfering in your plans.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfiiEnNBd_M Encounter! Team Flare]]. Another encounter theme for them, this one is more them actively trying to take you out.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfdTMhypOcA Team Flare Grunt Battle]]. Much more fast-paced and menacing version of the two encounter themes. This is where Team Flare intends to burn you for meddling in their goals.
* [[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=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.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4cnTQvywfM The Tower Of Mastery]] is appropriate for a cathedral dedicated to Mega Evolution. It also mixes Pokémon's main theme in parts.
* 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=uFjCPEJf39M Riding Skiddo]], a great theme to hear while riding those Pokémon.
* [[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.
* Hark! Who is that pair of unknown masked heroes?! Why, it’s the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSK5o-SGfbc Mysterious Figures]]! [[spoiler:Well okay, it’s Sycamore’s assistants Sina and Dexio in [[PaperThinDisguise Paper-Thin Disguises]], but let’s play along to keep them happy.]]
* [[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=]).
* [[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=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=S3lUgrmv3rc An Eternal Prison]]: [[spoiler:[[TearJerker "He was given a tiny box."]]]]
* The grandiose synth & organ theme used for the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWRTxXvuI3s battle against Xerneas/Yvetal]] ([[AndZoidberg and Zygarde]]).
* The theme for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmL04IaygE4 the battles against Lysandre]], head of Team Flare, is an epic, gravitas-filled remix of the Team Flare Grunt theme.
* [[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.
* Another potential TearJerker in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rm3y3Hk9Sn4 Snowbelle City's theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIC6Y5SLU_w The Pokémon Village theme.]] Very quirky, and very [[VideoGame/{{Earthbound}} Saturn Valley-esque]].
* [[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=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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NlWrzuZoL5Q The Elite Four Theme]] can totally get you pumped!
* [[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.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-X5FKopt9U The Hall of Fame Theme]] is grander than ever with a triumphant orchestra playing as the camera pans around you and the team you just dethroned the Champion with.
* [[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=0rRg6v9f2dA Kiseki]], the second ending credits theme. [[AwardBaitSong There are even lyrics to it.]] If you're feeling perky, you can turn a TearJerker into a SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}} by singing [[http://elfcoach.deviantart.com/art/KISEKI-410586815 these]] JustForFun/PokemonVietnameseCrystal styled [[IntentionalEngrishForFunny Engrish]] lyrics to the song.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TaQfeyBEFpY Kiloude's city theme]] has a wonderful, joyous summer festival feeling that makes the ending all the more triumphant and cheerful.
* 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.
* For the fights to capture Mewtwo and the Legendary Bird Trio, we get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rMolADpRvY a fast-paced electronic-sounding theme]]... which samples the original Wild Pokémon battle theme from the Red and Blue versions!
* [[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.
* 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]]'''.
* So it's your birthday and you happen to go into a Pokemon Center to heal your team up! Here's is the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hwIMZRk0u8 music that plays instead of the normal PokeCenter music, befittingly called 'Happy Birthday']]. Not only are you met with dimmed lights, but little Pikachu stickers fall down your screen and the display behind Nurse Joy shows a birthday cake.

[[folder:''Omega Ruby''/''Alpha Sapphire'']]
* The glorious trumpets have returned for [[https://youtu.be/hkoXy3jRpww The Title Screen]], which will fill you with a surge of epicness, sense of adventure and nostalgia. Even the players who haven't played the original games will tear up just a bit before the end.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pYO0aHmez4 Wild Pokémon Battle]] theme gets an energetic remix.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ughuvHfGz1c Oldale / Lavaridge town]] theme has gotten even more soothing and heartwarming now.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFE4QBZjkkU Trainer Battle]] theme gets updated with some string instruments.
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IALcyC6Lho8 Rival]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9U9DT8DGNtU Encounter]] themes, which reflects their friendliness and closeness towards the player character.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPbl6o9mGEs Rival Battle]] theme gets an awesome remix ''brimming'' with energy.
* Wally gets a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5c3VjxJbfG0 very upbeat version of his theme]] that is played at Mauville City and in Victory Road, the tune sounding sweet and innocent to match the kind but shy boy Wally starts out as.
* The best [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZk5emrpiCw villainous trainer victory theme]] so far can be heard here.
* 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=CjPZjWd2SJk Slateport City]] manages to sound even better than the original; the beautiful bell-chimes are dang-near entrancing to listen to.
* Those who played Red and Blue years ago might shed a few tears when visiting the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exutnZKmZ50 Oceanic Museum]].
* To fit with the expanded presence and characterization of the villains, a couple of new encounter themes were added, which set the mood for a confrontation perfectly. The admins have [[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=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=a1TpA7aGzJY The encounter theme]] for Delinquents and Street Thugs is just plain epic.
* [[https://youtu.be/2U5tQ5H2c1k The Bicycle Theme]] will accompany you through your journeys whether you're on an Acro Bike or a Mach Bike, in the middle of a forest or a desert, rain or shine.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydEwobtGON8 Route 113]], like before, is a beautiful melody that plays as you stroll through the ash covered grass, but this time, it's accompanied by the lovely, down-to-earth strums of an acoustic guitar.
* Behold [[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.
* 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.
* Listen to the new [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kG7F9Tdm3ZI Crossing the Sea]] theme! Already lauded as one of the best songs in ''RSE'', this version dials up the serene awesomeness to a whole new level.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdwXEOJqKOo Abandoned Ship]] gets two wonderful remixes, the first for the Abandoned Ship’s remake counterpart “Sea Mauville”, and the second playing for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W35Dzi_g-iE the Southern Island]].
* 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.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thxFklxbs_c Mt. Pyre's exterior]]. Those acoustic guitars, man.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyfVyiI_fRk The Lilycove City theme]] is back and as beautiful as ever.
* [[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=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 '''dropping the bass''' and shifting into an intense song with multiple trumpets and electric guitar.
* 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 a couple Youtube commenters:
--> '''On "Drought":''' In the original Ruby I thought everything just got really bright and that Hoenn was only a bit hotter than normal. Now the fucking sky is on fire.
--> '''On "Heavy Rainfall":''' Sounds like a [[Anime/DragonBallZ DBZ]] stare down theme where the villain wastes 15 minutes of screen time just monologuing. I love it!
* The [[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.
* [[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.
* 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.
* [[https://youtu.be/M0WNhlouWO4 Victory Road]] has never sounded this epic, and you feel like a badass facing a seemingly insurmountable task, but being the badass you are, you just plough through relentlessly.
* Wally finally gets his own [[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!''
* [[https://youtu.be/RBj_Tdw_7xE Ever Grande City]] is just beautiful. You feel like you're about to finish your journey soon, which is sad, but you're also thinking about all the possibilities lying in front of you, once you accomplish your goals.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjltP8GISJE Elite Four Battle]] sounds just as good, if not better, than the original.
* All of the amazing battle remixes get rounded out with the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UDFWznA_L2k Champion Battle Theme]], sounding even more frantic than before.
* [[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.
* Those who played Emerald may find that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTQD2sIlrzA the Sky Pillar music]] gives them an odd sense of deja vu. [[spoiler:And then it hits you - it's a remix of the same track that's played [[LongSongShortScene when Rayquaza comes down to quell Groudon and Kyogre's fight]].]]
* The many variations of [[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]].
* The Delta Episode's climax offers a fantastic update of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8LZruXvong Deoxys' theme]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7ru_eeOeL8 Emerald Frontier Brain theme]] returns in all its glory, now used as the theme of the four Battle Chatelaines.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ULAbV65IDY Hoenn Medley]], the ending song which plays after your induction into the Hall of Fame. It's a beautiful combination of many familiar songs of the routes and cities you visited during your journey, and it also shows YOUR pokémon and key battles where you used them.

[[folder: ''Sun/Moon'']]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IK-kP32o8yo Welcome to the Alola Region]] takes the inspirational sound of previous introduction themes and adds in a Hawaiian sound that makes for one of the best intro themes in the series so far.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-t_C-CgJ-3A Lillie's Theme]] is a beautiful piece that is as soothing as it is haunting and mysterious, much like the girl herself and her companion. It undergoes a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arlKOLyItPc&t lively remix]] [[spoiler: to showcase her CharacterDevelopment, and will be guaranteed to bring a smile to listeners' faces.]] However, for those who [[spoiler: miss her after she departs from Alola,]] the theme will instead bring a tinge of melancholy and nostalgia.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BYcMPXxJrg Hau's battle theme]] is as cheerful and energetic as the boy who aims to be stronger than Kahuna Hala. Its liveliness just screams "Pokemon battles can be fun, y'know!" and really captures Hau's overall attitude during his Pokemon journey.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RP-PuqvTYec The Pokémon Center theme]] takes the original melody and adds nice tropical sounds to it.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMo4gk_7twU The Trainer Battle theme]] is an energetic theme with the tune at the beginning pulled straight out of ''Film/JurassicPark''.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQ9ThqYzd2A Hau'oli City's day theme]] is a happy tune with banjo/ukulele sounds to it, while [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owZkO4TY4zk the night theme]] is a smooth jazz piano version.
* The [[https://youtu.be/MR4R0BAOBV8 salon theme]] is a smooth R&B number that makes you want to go back to the salon just to hear it, regardless of whether you're getting your hair done or not.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hL3z32ZCySA Team Skull's encounter theme]], an insanely catchy hip-hop theme, complete with minor vocals! It gets two equally awesome battle remixes: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hx8H54VgTk one for the battles against regular grunts]], and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Askr-P3wIY one for Plumeria]]. Guzma has his own [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-fkSjPFktI battle]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neva6Pwg-Wo encounter theme]], catchier and much more threatening than his Grunt's. One can hear a hint of Kanto's trainer music in those themes.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xl4g9GpKgkM Ten Carat Hill's theme]] is a mysterious sounding tune with piano sounds to it which gives the feeling of going on an adventure in the lush Alola region.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjbEeVC1yxY The Totem Pokemon theme]], an intimidating remix of the Wild Pokemon theme that does a good job of emphasizing the formidable nature of the foe you're facing.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIjsuw0uIqA The Kahunas' battle theme]] starts with badass and intimidating drums, before transitioning into a much happier theme signifying that they may be the strongest Trainers in the island, but they're only here to test your strength in a friendly match, and you have the power to beat them.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDLj143lxVk Gladion's battle theme]] is an amazing and catchy bass piece that pulls inspiration from the Unova and Sinnoh music styles and perfectly fits Gladion himself, with his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2AZM4rCL_0 encounter theme]] being a calmer and softer version, but equally awesome and catchy.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TdcJCi6Bvg The Battle Royal Dome theme]] is very reminiscent of "Gonna Fly Now" from ''{{Film/Rocky}}''.
* The Dome's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0Yor7UoGH8 battle theme]] is an energetic theme that perfectly captures the atmosphere of a 4-player deathmatch arena.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4qdUsfuhh0 The Ultra Beasts' battle theme]], an intense and otherworldly electronic theme that fits these unknown, otherworldly threats perfectly.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOrjVpJcL48 Malie City's theme]] has a very Japanese feel, fitting for a city founded and influenced by people from Johto. Its [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnsgU6LpDIk night theme]] almost sounds like something out of VideoGame/{{Okami}}.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCIzHJhP8PY Nanu]] has a very chilled out smooth jazz theme that is not only awesome, but perfectly reflects his laid-back personality. It is worth noting that he is the only Island Kahuna that has his own unique theme, while Hala, Olivia, and Hapu share a theme.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPIs-cabgAs The battle music]] for the [[spoiler: Aether Foundation]] [[DarkReprise went 180]] to their [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrhf6gjK-1g peaceful theme]], replacing violins and soft beats in favor of suspenseful piano and heavy beats. [[CrapsaccharineWorld Giving you a heads up that you're not in Paradise anymore...]]
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6NOKxxIz3Y music]] that plays while [[spoiler:Lusamine]] lets the Ultra Beasts loose upon Alola sounds like a perfect alien invasion theme.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnaVTcUDQMA The battle theme]] for [[spoiler: Aether President Lusamine]]. It is both a beautiful and menacing piece, which perfectly describes the opponent's [[FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon ambitions behind their pleasant exterior]]. Then there is their initial [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4bMzkn4g2o encounter theme]] which brings to mind a soft lullaby, yet still sounds slightly off. Finally, the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRP7tCvg-Og remix]] used for the rematch adds disturbing electronic warbles and hums along with a synthesized OneWomanWail that completely removes any pretense of calm, when [[spoiler: Lusamine completely reveals her psychotic personality by fusing with the Ultra Beast Nihilego and becoming the Motherbeast]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=952qhKhnULQ Poni Wilds]], and the other Poni areas. Like Kalos Route 18 before it, an elegant track that gives off happy vibes and wouldn't be out of place in the closing credits of a movie about love. Or as wedding music.
* The theme to the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRpwmhYoEew&t=393s Vast Poni Canyon]] starts solemn, then grows into a upbeat and overall very heroic theme to serenade you whilst you go through what some consider the hardest dungeon in the main storyline. Bonus points for having serious Route 10 vibes.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37riOeCnnpQ The battle theme for Solgaleo and Lunala]]. It starts out with what sounds like a quiet, fast paced, heartbeat, before erupting in an intense techno beat that perfectly captures the mood that while they are otherworldly, benign beings, they are still powerful Legendary Pokémon.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZ0xj9rxTpI Lonely Lillie]], the music that plays during [[spoiler: Lillie's farewell to Nebby]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlDnSOCb3Fs The Victory Road theme]] of the game is a resounding triumphant piece, which fits the change of this game's Victory Road from a sprawling maze to a linear last stretch towards the League.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dv7AXRqjTuQ The Elite Four's battle theme]], a fast-paced and badass theme that shows how they're not pulling any punches anymore. It suits the DifficultySpike of this Gen's Elite Four compared to their Gen VI counterparts.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFuHp38ukyc The Champion's theme]] ('''major spoilers'''). It starts off awesomely with the first few bars of the series' main theme, then transitions into a badass and triumphant theme that perfectly exemplifies how [[spoiler:this time, YOU are the Champion; the tables have turned and you're the one who must defend your title from different challengers!]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUaRU3xf_bs Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon]] give us an amazing remix of [[spoiler:Hau's Battle Theme]] for the Champion Battle with him.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZxLCY5svDs The theme of the Tapu Ruins]] has a very mysterious but calming feel, to the point that it could pass for a track from the first ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime''.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_u-rBhq-auk The Tapu battle theme]], upbeat, powerful and also very catching, fitting for the Guardians of Alola.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNZ7gllxeZs This remix]] of [[spoiler:Red's battle theme]] is somewhat more laid-back than its predecessors, somewhat emphasizing the more hospitable environment Alola provides while mixing the intense nostalgia of the original two generations.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ede3rL1ZyoA Someday...]] is soft and low-key, yet every bit as poignant as the moments in the story when it's used.
* And there's the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkRWwanIKug&t=242s end credits]]. Upbeat yet heartachingly nostalgic, it makes you realize you never really wanted it all to end.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8Ubrf8eodc This song]] accompanies the "The End" screen. The sound of waves breaking on the shore is incredibly soothing. Even better, it's [[spoiler: a remix of the song that plays inside your house, one of the first songs you heard when you started the game]]. Makes you want to just sit on the final screen for a minute or sixty...

[[folder: ''Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon'']]
* The return of Team Rocket comes with this [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVAWlEJ065g remix of the original Rocket Battle theme]]; it's incredible nostalgia for those who grew up with Red and Blue.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6Mt_uxnYRA Giovanni now has his own battle theme]]; it begins with the opening notes of the Team Rainbow Rocket theme, but it quickly transitions into an original piece that's every bit as intense and dramatic as one would expect for a rematch twenty years in the making.
* All of the villainous team members got their themes remixed, and they aren't half bad.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQqBatjkLCg Ghetsis]] has returned, and with him, his theme. Remixed with less [[{{Mondegreen}} DENNIS]] and creepier than ever.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cM9ZdDIvbUY Maxie/Archie]] get grand, techno-ish remixes of their themes.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPaYENzRrcU Cyrus]] gets a bombastic remix of his theme from ''Diamond''/''Pearl'', which hasn't been heard from in a long, long time.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdzG1GkSCzQ Lysandre]] gets a grand, more menacing version of his original theme, showing he means even more business than before.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMkQotAnSuM Necrozma gets its own theme for this game,]] an organ-blasting, drum-heavy song that is equal parts awesome and menacing, playing [[spoiler:when it challenges the player after assimilating Nebby]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HN7v5nS2XTM The Ultra Recon Squad's battle theme]], an alien, techno song that is perfect for the otherworldly trainers that are the Ultra Recon Squad.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q15Dbz4bVWE Ultra Megalopolis]]. It's easy to tell something has gone terribly wrong here. [[spoiler:It also serves as foreshadowing to Necrozma's true nature.]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFTemk99fLU The song which plays]] during the final battle against [[spoiler:Ultra Necrozma]] is pure undiluted ''awesome'', being a [[spoiler:glorious combination of Necrozma's theme, the Cover Legend's theme, and Ultra Megalopolis.]] The chillingly beautiful intro has an almost religious feel to it, before quickly transitioning into a battle theme worthy of [[OlympusMons the Pokémon which surpasses Arceus itself in raw power]]. The sheer power of the song really makes you realize [[ClimaxBoss how much has been leading up to this fight]], and how much is on the line; it's a fitting song to mark the EndOfAnEra as the franchise prepares to make the transition to consoles.
* Each of the original Ultra Beasts gets a theme for their respective Ultra Spaces, along with one more for the other Ultra Spaces.
** Nihilego has the unsettling [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mmZPzieoDs Ultra Deep Sea]], the original Ultra Space theme from Sun/Moon.
** Buzzwole has [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMuH9XXeVWQ Ultra Jungle]], a bombastic Donkey Kong-like song. Never before has a song represented a buff flexing mosquito so well before.
** Pheromosa has [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lXnf4gau3E Ultra Desert]], an eerily calm, ethereal piece.
** Xurkitree has [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wGIcqb73c8 Ultra Plant]], an energetic, techno-ish theme with various mechanical-sounding noises.
** Celesteela brings us [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9KXiuHA8O8 Ultra Crater]], a bombastic and somewhat quirky theme.
** On the other hand, Kartana has [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcR1efLYAE4 Ultra Forest]], a gorgeous, Japanese-sounding theme that perfectly embodies the origami samurai.
** Guzzlord boasts [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yoqCVqVWsc Ultra Ruin]], which is a qualifier for most disturbing theme ''in the series'', what with the constant interruptions, static, and creepy ambience. And it gets worse: [[spoiler:It's a warped, backwards version the Hau'oli city theme, which in itself has several horrifying implications...]]
** The theme for the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xv1RwzxT2PA Ultra Space Wilds]] is a strange, eerily tranquil piece. [[spoiler:Reverse it and speed it up, and it's a remix of the Alola Region theme...]]

(Warning: Major EarWorm material here):

* The ever-lively [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shZJxS-2Rrc Pokémon Square.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKgR3xUH4sE Mt. Thunder]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqIlTNZgudw Mt. Thunder Peak]] have a slow, heavy beat that sounds like roaring thunder.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HWbRU7giAE Great Canyon,]] a mystical-sounding tune for seeking the mystic seer Xatu.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6F4NK_GpNs4 The Legend of Ninetales,]] a slow, heavy song that fits the somber telling of the ancient legend.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPl_P6LjNbM The song playing while you and your partner become refugees]] is just... man, it's sad and epic at the same time! Same for the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEXf6NQeFzI snow version]]. [[TearJerker You might want some tissues for it, though.]]
* [[http://youtu.be/VbiPDDp_Exg Mt. Blaze]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3KwradgHAQ Mt. Blaze Peak]] perfectly capture the tone of slogging through a fiery mountain, climbing through the searing heat.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-d1zLImrmZE This]] will play if you dare steal from a Kecleon Shop.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEBzKRq3lNA Benevolent Spirit,]] a relaxing, ethereal tune.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOzrp4-muZM Mt. Freeze Peak.]] The slow synths have a cold feeling to them, as befitting the icy dungeon.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nbLb-_IAemw Monster House.]] Nothing says "Oh no!" like entering a room only to have this start blaring as over a dozen hostile Pokemon drop in... unless you've got a room-clearing move in your arsenal, in which case free XP!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6VpszaT0Yw WORLD. CALAMITY]]. The song says "the world is in great peril, but all is not yet lost".
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QQFuPT3aas Sky Tower]], the final level.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUHhsl7mMcs Stormy Sea and Murky Cave,]] a very aquatic-sounding cave, fitting for Kyogre's home.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djLGNqZPnPI The Credits]] theme. After great hardships and at great cost, the world is saved; people will remember what you have done...

(Warning: Major TearJerker material here):

%% Please use the song titles given in the Sky Jukebox to prevent confusion. There have indeed been duplicates on this list in the past.
* Two games into a subseries, and we're already starting to have recurring themes... not that that's a bad thing when the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1_1gFzLPKU Boss Theme is so awesome]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BUAgAOog1w Time Gear (Remix)]] (a.k.a. "Fogbound Lake"), the game's first iteration of the Time Gear theme. The calm beginning slowly rising to the determined ending... awesome.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fLhZPLETbQ Outlaw/thieves battle music]] from Time and Darkness was truly awesome; if it plays because you just stole from Shopkeeper Kecleon, it's truly ''panic-inducing''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FsIEYgFccBo Mt. Horn,]] a rousing march that's perfect for mountain-climbing.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YNnl4i0yK0 Steam Cave]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahJCSoK2aa8 Upper Steam Cave]] have a slow, heavy beat to match the cave's stifling heat.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxPrJaf3aWQ Time Gear,]] an ethereal, mystical tune to accompany the mystical artifacts that stabilize all of time.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQzSwvwlvMs Time Restored]] is a beautiful tune for a beautiful sight.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLehZQ2WzaQ Northern Desert]] has a swinging sound that is perfect for the sandy locale it goes with. Dig that flute!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9Z9PXuV03Y Quicksand Cave]] boasts strings, brass, and an almost tribal drumbeat to fit well with the shifting sands.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jslGSHzZJ_w Crystal Cave.]] Slow and gentle, with beautiful crystalline chimes.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cn_EWXxGHao The Darkness.]] Welcome to the BadFuture.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUY7B6aHTco Chasm Cave]], which is perfect for the environment of the BadFuture.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSejcOaP_kc Dark Hill,]] a track for one of the dark future's dungeons, and very heavy on the (MIDI) brass.
* The [[TearJerker tear-inducing]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-rNpcQ51kv4 In the Hands of Fate]], a solemn music-box tune (and, if you pay close attention, Primal Dialga's battle theme has bits of this in it).
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8i-7KWL4yo Sealed Ruin.]] Trekking through the BadFuture, seeking a way out, not knowing who or what may lay ahead of you...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VK85n8OW_Q Dusk Forest]]. To some it might be a bit tacky, but to others, it's just awesome. Plus, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNqgnCIgkns Deep Dusk Forest]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_fDh0JWoBY Treeshroud Forest.]] Slow, mystical, and a little creepy - in other words, perfect for a cautious trek through a shadowed forest.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5FWWhAlIRw Brine Cave,]] a slightly bouncy song, with sounds like popping bubbles and glittering waters.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpRonML3WaU The Hidden Land,]] a slow, flute-dominated tune, soothing yet eerie, as you begin your trek towards the final battles.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dqq3dxRWTXM Hidden Highland,]] slow and serious as you approach the Temporal Tower, knowing what lies ahead...
* "Battle against Dusknoir", the battle theme used for Dusknoir and Darkrai. Take a listen and get pumped and creeped out at the same time. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5EsxqCBhig Ooooh]]~!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dALXm4V3wbE Temporal Tower]], the final level of the main story. And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZIZ9C9j3rU Temporal Spire]], the end part of the level.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxEBYYHmV4Y Through the Sea of Time]], most famously played [[spoiler: for Grovyle's HeroicSacrifice against Dusknoir just before Temporal Tower]]. The tune's slow wistful and energetic use of flute and brass puts energy to a desperate scene, as if saying [[spoiler: "don't go, please!" to Grovyle when you need him most]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxS8YDjTpeg Dialga's Fight to the Finish!]], the final boss of both the main story and the fifth special episode. In the latter, it actually begins to play well before the battle actually begins, serving to make the prior scene even more epic. It even reappears for ''Super Mystery Dungeon''! For maximum awesome, there's this absolutely ''stunning'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poiqPQpiTN0 remix]].

** If you're not done crying, there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-l2UdMhcvHU "Have to Get Home"]], which follows soon afterwards. Short and simple, but nevertheless beautiful.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iw0ag0QdNq4 Memories Returned]] plays over your partner's montage of memories of your adventures together, just before the end credits. Someone wrote [[http://vulpixtwo.deviantart.com/gallery/?offset=24#/d48vl2y lyrics]].
** And then the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzRbMlo5Cow ending theme]] kicks in to remind you that you just did something great. It acknowledges that some difficult sacrifices were made that are still hard to accept, but man, you saved the world! What's not worth it about that?

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcBQ_vLbtw4 Defy the Legends]], a remix of the first games' final boss theme, played for some Legendary bosses, including the Seven Guardians.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPTABtB5NaA Palkia's Onslaught!]] is a suitably epic theme for a suitably epic boss. Too bad it didn't get ported over to ''Super Mystery Dungeon''...
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6CwUoHuf_0 music]] for [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon Dark Crater]]. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eX-w7GD1oQ music]] for Deep Dark Crater is also pretty good, thought it doubles as HellIsThatNoise.
* Say hello to the awesome [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGLa-jnK1Ok Sky Peak Forest]] music! And the retro-styled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S91sN1KRX2U Sky Peak Cave]].
* The lamely-named but ''epic'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzfFvxNe_6U Random Dungeon Theme 3]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dx4jvvD3iEc The Star Cave theme]]. It's very pretty. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYiIAc8XwJI Deep Star Cave]] is not to be ignored, either.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhPwkMMzEKg One for All, All for One!]], from when [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome the Wigglytuff Guild shows up to back up Bidoof]] in Special Episode 1.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHO2Ui9WK5o Fortune Ravine theme]]. The whole thing just screams "EPIC ADVENTURE".

%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BneRjd_c1-A Team Charm's Theme.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mS70EQf1hLI Barren Valley]], the first dungeon of Grovyle's extra chapter - so peaceful, but so powerful.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0ffFPERMpQ Dark Wasteland.]] [[LongSongShortScene It's a shame the dungeon it plays in is so short.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9smKwTh6cvw Icicle Forest]] provides a sense of ominousness. Fitting, considering what happens afterwards...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sr6Us8k9VX0 The music]] from the first part of the Vast Ice Mountain is quite sad.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vI-Z0C27zo In the Morning Sun]], the music before Special Episode 5's credits [[spoiler:as Grovyle, Dusknoir and Celebi begin to fade away.]]

[[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=jmJvO2ZSNBA Ragged Mountain]] is just a wonderful first dungeon theme.
* This game's version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IGsMrHoaLA the boss battle music.]]
* 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDMaNSwQ7d4 Theme of Hope]]. ''Beautiful.''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLoxv2EHlnI Hazy Pass (Highlands)]] is driving, tense, and an overall amazing piece.
* The whole first half of the game builds towards going to the Great Glacier, and when you finally arrive, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZjaq96DeaA the music doesn't disappoint.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAyAw8BziFQ Withered Savannah]] is a catchy song with some wonderful vocal effects.
* [[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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvONFCf5RMo Kyurem Approaching!]] When you hear this, you know something '''[[WhamEpisode bad]]''' is about to happen.
* 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]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqtJ9zyF0dk Kyurem's battle theme,]] a heavy, pounding, frightening tone to accompany the battle against the mighty beast who seeks to [[spoiler:preserve the fate he has foreseen, no matter who he has to kill to do so]].
* 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.
* The ending themes are incredible as always, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHdIvlNDKg0 A Home To Remember]] being the first in a sequence of tearjerking songs that convey a profound mixture of joy and sorrow.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QnslrVV5jE Wrapped In a Light]].

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vgve22OysOc Even If I Forget You]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvCQyiuhFHs The Frism]].
* One of the most rockin' BonusBoss soundtracks ever, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JGiPyyVMVA Bounty Board Challenge.]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brtdP3mKm2M Illusory Holehills]] has a different composition together with the original Holehills' main melody, the main part of which somehow manages to make bagpipes sound epic.

[[AC:''Super Mystery Dungeon'']]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQcTiXO4c44 The main theme]] is about as bombastically orchestral as you can get.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHgw1CJGi9w Lush Forest]] is one of the best songs in the game, and the perfect way to kick off your adventure.
* This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fu7QxSnaVJc epic remix]] of the boss theme which re-orchestrates it and adds real instruments to make the boss fights feel even more grandiose. And then there's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOqlOslYlfc Rock version]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoQNUP9cblc The Partner's theme]] is sweet, beautiful, and an little sad at the same time. Also, an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rbp0jU-byTc equally amazing, but more heartbreaking]], music box remix.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtcp30JUfhY Gentle Slope Cave]] turns out to have a really engaging and dynamic soundtrack.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usuKnzJLoHU Fire Island Volcano]] is absurdly epic, opening with a low-key didgeridoo before abruptly kicking into high-gear with strings and bagpipes.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Pkj83JRBrg The third boss theme]], "Fiery Showdown with Entei", is even more awesome, perfectly carrying the mood of an intense showdown with the [[OlympusMons deity-tier Legendaries]] it plays for.
* [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=V5g2UlANTBw Reverse Mountain]] is an epic song for a point in the story where things are getting intense, and its presence in the final few floors of [[BrutalBonusLevel Destiny Tower]] is fitting for a time when your journey is finally coming to an end.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXvFFGg3vDI Submerged Cave]]'s theme is mystical and crystalline, a perfect fit for the dungeon itself.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9towVurnx4 Road to Primeval Forest]] is a haunting and ethereal melody perfect for an endgame crawl through TheLostWoods.
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcYI_UvszXY Make It!]]", the soundtrack's accompaniment to a climactic cutscene.
* The two final dungeon themes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blge4fEHzoo Tree of Life: Roots]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIY8aKg4sOwand Tree of Life: Trunk]] are both epic, with the former's church bells and catchy instrumentation that is bound to get [[StealthPun rooted]] in your head, as well as the latter's more warped sounding instrumentation, which makes it sound more like the Tree of Life is being killed right in front of your eyes.
* Both of the final boss themes are amazing, much like ''Gates to Infinity''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTMXG8UtP5E The first theme]] really gives off the feeling of fighting an incredibly mysterious but dangerous foe, while [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5jpdiv1718 the second theme]] just ''screams'' the fact that everyone's counting on you to save the world. It even has part of the Partner's theme mixed for good measure!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANTKOK-KW5k Sahra Town]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msg5Xew7yZ4 Noe Town]] have wildly different but extremely pleasant themes that really sum up the character of each town. The latter even seems to have hints of the Time Gear theme from ''Explorers.''
* Some of the best themes from the previous games got remixes here: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DP2H-AzliOg Sand Dune of Spirits]] is a remix of Great Canyon from ''Rescue Team,'' and Amp Plains from ''Explorers'' was remixed as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPg3y0IYNWY Electric Wasteland]].

[[folder:''Pokémon Ranger'']]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auD9lAqnw8Q The music when you battle Raikou and Suicune]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonRanger'' is pretty cool. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFkCBM9VQm4 The music for the final battle against Entei]], however, is pure awesomeness. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVNXuDpnsmk Gordor's theme]] is also good.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzYRSVAMRSA Go Rock Quad's Last Chance]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsuwPdTSZmM Go Rock Squad's Secret Base]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ajp_m7TE1nw Sekra Range]].

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dQXfWF-b18 Wild Pokemon Battle]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsYOlDzo2rI Mission]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zy_9u7v5zWQ Vien Forest]] is an amazing road tune.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qHTaMgB-NU Team Dim Sun]] also has a very catchy blues-style tune. Not to mention their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFRhcY9Oob0 battle theme]], and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DvVbnKpeyhk Admin Battle]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Y6EGeL25gA Sinis Trio Battle Themes]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJcOZU7XjzM The Go-Rock Quads' music]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vlujQHSZUo their concert at the end]].
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkDX2GPbbSI Altru Tower]].
* Ladies and gentleman, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4JkU9yU7mo Cargo Ship/Oil Field Hideout]]. Note how it's a medley of several Dim Sun themes.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGM50bufZns The Altru Building music.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buPUFxwwNr4 The Shadows of Almia Ending]] is beautiful, especially from 1:05-1:36.

[[AC:''Guardian Signs'']]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NginS22buSc The theme that plays when you encounter a legendary in the story]] starts off foreboding before rising to a feeling of determination.

[[folder:''Pokémon Colosseum'']]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkfAz08cupw The friendly battle theme.]] To quote the comments section, "never before has a one-sided battle against two extremely common Pokémon been so epic." To wit, the song (and its associated Trainer, Rider Willie) was so popular that it ([[RunningGag and Rider Willie]]) returned in all its ([[RuleOfThree and his]]) splendor for ''XD''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPcvfbkoJ6E The normal battle theme.]] Quirky yet energetic, matching perfectly with the bizarrely named trainers of Orre.
%%* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pU7c1kxapGw Pokémon Center theme]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-pxYogogNs The Cipher Peon battle theme,]] with its heavy emphasis on electric guitars and a synth matches well with the sci-fi looking uniforms worn by the Cipher Peons.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wGfVSV3V80 Pre Gym theme,]] an awesomely catchy and upbeat song that just makes you wanna dance.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxQxXpRDLDU Pyrite Town,]] so insanely catchy you'll start finger-snapping along.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAHHFc-gIeI Miror B.'s theme]]. Let the music play!
* The peaceful [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5s9FEa7mCo Agate Village.]]
* The beautiful [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1-wIw5_kDw Relic Forest.]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owXv2qq5XGE The Semifinals theme.]] Despite it being rarely used throughout the game it is perfect for building up the finals of both a Colosseum and Mt. Battle.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MziNWhOHj10 The Cipher Admin battle theme.]] A wonderfully bombastic take on the main {{leitmotif}} reserved for the difficult battles against the Cipher Admins.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-911UPw6u7k "The Under,"]] which is a town theme that sounds nothing short of awesome.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEEZnVjfyPY The Shadow Pokemon Lab theme]] makes surprisingly effective use of the piano and harmonica to produce a tune that doesn't sound like it should fit a secret criminal research lab, yet it somehow does.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJIqLEvHMMw Tournament Semifinal Battle.]]
* The relaxing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WjYOs9BvMM Realgam Tower.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AH40Ae6cq0A The final boss theme.]] Trumpets and horns really drive home that this battle is going to be a serious one.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itXFPpAISMo VS Battle 1,]] which remixed the Hoenn Trainer theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6Ka6TX9q_U VS Battle 2,]] ''Colosseum'''s remix of the Hoenn Gym Leader theme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNyCF5FR8Yk VS Battle 3,]] the ''Colosseum'' remix of the ''RSE'' Champion battle theme is pretty great.

[[folder:''Pokémon XD'']]
%%* ''XD''[='s=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSdeJcWX14w Cipher Peon theme.]]
* This game outfitted Miror B. with a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuhqoZvyntA funky-fresh, disco-riffic battle theme,]] perfect for groovin' to.
%%* ''XD''[='s=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LH3vgXGiVY Cipher Admin battle theme!]]
* [[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.]]
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D97EJvZjTWA Citadark Isle]]", a heavy, bombastic theme that perfectly fits TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon of the game.
* You probably used the Master Ball instantly on Shadow Lugia... but if you did, you missed out on his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jK9sMfN2JAk awesome battle theme.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvhx2409c4c final battle theme]] is even better than the previous game's.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0dstwhnilc The Grandmaster Battle Theme]] is pretty epic.
* [[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, and 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 and 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.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlF3KXjM8kI Imakuni's theme]]. Just as weird as the guy himself, but catchy as hell.

[[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: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.
* ''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.
%%* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonTrozei Pokémon Battle Trozei]]'' has some pretty epic tracks, particularly the boss music.[[note]]Sadly, it's very difficult to find any tracks for it online[[/note]]
* ''[[VideoGame/PanelDePon Pokémon Puzzle League]]'' ends in the most appropriate way ever; [[spoiler:accompanying the credits is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isbADMzwpLo an N64 remix of the Pokérap]]]]
* ''VideoGame/PokkenTournament''
** The game has some great songs for the arenas, but the one that takes the cake is the [[https://youtu.be/qnOwUccAO5Q Magikarp Festival stage theme]], which mixes traditional Japanese instruments and modern dubstep to create one kickass beat that will now be forever associated with Magikarp.
** [[https://youtu.be/RaHQtTLp1vw Tellur Town]] has a great "setting out on an adventure" feel to it.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8n32wVdZ48 Mystery Carnival]] serves as Chandelure's theme, and radiates a nice spooky and upbeat atmosphere.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1-ImyLHcHU Dark Colosseum Final]] is tense and climatic, especially when the organs and piano come in towards the end.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1Chj-Nxppk Neos City at Night]] takes the overly techno Neos City theme and tones it down while toning up the class.
* ''VideoGame/PokemonGo''
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAMkwpMReyE Gym Battle Theme]] feels like a combination of Gym Battle Themes of the past.
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9GpCSw1zdU Raid Battle Theme]] is perfect for taking on larger-than-life Pokémon, whether it's a simple Magikarp or a [[OlympusMons Legendary]]. Especially the latter when a dozen or so trainers team up at once.
** After a Raid is cleared, the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PawhVpvA3A Raid Capture Theme]] kicks in. The heightened tone of the song emphasizes the limited time you have to catch the Pokémon in question. This theme is reused for special encounters as rewards for completing Research Missions.
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lkyOtmDUII Mew Encounter Theme]] ramps up the Raid Capture Theme to 11. Whether it's exclusive to Mew or used for all Mythical Pokémon in general remains to be seen.

%% 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").

[[AC: Anime]]
[[folder:Image Songs]]
* 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 cliché to mention the foreign versions of music for animation on the Crowner pages, but one must mention just how ''wonderfully'' over the top the [[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]]
*** The Team Rocket image song returns in glorious form with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riM6qlzRHwQ Rocket-Dan Danka]], which begins with a military drumbeat, then brings in the electric guitars before what seems like the entire brass section of the orchestra takes over. The vocal version plays over their [[Awesome/PokemonAnime finer moments]], like their challenge to Team Flare. Indomitable Team Rocket, indeed.
** "[[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 it's James and Jessie who are singing!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NF-QkFHgaio The album's title song "2.B.A. Master"]], among others.
** [[IncomingHam YOU GUYS READY FOR THE]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_umy2VJEgk POKÉRAP?!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTz2-8vnvX0 "Together Forever"]].
* Then there's the ''Totally Pokémon CD'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHITqvzQDr4 Two Perfect Girls]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FW5apKzqEqU The Johto Pokerap]]. P-O-K-E-MON!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TQPaXYDf3A You & Me & Pokémon.]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQnX0BCXrAk Never Too Far From Home.]] A reminder to trainers everywhere that their loved ones are always with them.
* The 20th anniversary remix of the homely ''Oyasumi, Boku no Pikachu'' makes it feel like a true lullaby.

* [[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=CUAsFL9QwC0 "This Dream"]] (''Advanced Challenge'')
%%** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awYTELIEt8o "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 Creator/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.]]
** Then comes Music/JonathanYoung with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyQjVtIGQg8 this Metal cover of the song]], alongside Jason Paige, ''the man who did the original theme itself.''
* [[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/Pokemon2000 first]] [[Anime/{{Pokemon3}} three]] ''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.
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wi4fN52zTz4 2001 version]] used for the 4th movie is nothing to sneeze at.
** You think the song can't be any more awesome? The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TeNm2W06s0I 20th movie's remastered version]] may make you say it, and perhaps more than that!
* 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?
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSLdNOsttFI Be An Arrow]] was awesome enough, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Tyr09_s3Bc 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. And then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuQanVY2iO4 KiraKira]], the variant used as an insert song. Both songs also end up being sung by cast members at later points -- the former by Ash in the 20th anniversary "Mezase Pokemon Master" album, the latter by Clemont as a one-off ending theme.
* [[https://soundcloud.com/valentinho-gonz-lez/pokemon-xyz-opening-full-cv "XY&Z"]], the Japanese opening theme for ''Pokemon XY&Z'', is shaping up to be one of the most ''awesome'' openings, especially with its beautiful lyrics and amazing title sequence. There's also a version which plays as [[https://youtu.be/SW7QU72Eo2s Ash-Gerninja's Theme]] - which is whom the lyrics of the XY&Z theme song actually reference.
%%* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQtNtfnsLpA Be a Hero]]", from the second XY series.
* [[https://youtu.be/G87RHlWcDDA Alola!!]] is the first Japanese opening for ''Sun and Moon'' and very effectively captures the lighthearted yet exciting nature of the setting.
* ''Adventures In Unova'' gives us [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJiu6osGtuo It's Always You And Me]], a lovely piece, that emphasizes [[TheyveComeSoFarSong how Ash has gotten so far in his adventure]] with [[ThePowerOfFriendship his friends]], and [[TheDeterminator how he won't be giving up anytime soon]].
* The Swedish versions of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nGhpynKzSI original]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33VVTUcRn5I Advanced Challenge]] are pretty good as well.
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fbhS4e-dEE opening theme to the Explorers of Time and Darkness special]] is easily one of the most adventurous music tracks in the entire series. The perfect theme to prepare a viewer for Team Poképals' journey.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlDHtVe4Pto Under the Alolan Moon]] may be a little on the short side, but it's very catchy and unique. There's something rather ominous about it.
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9YdpdpCErY Future Connection]]", the third ''Sun and Moon'' Japanese opening, begins with an EpicRiff, and is quite catchy.

* 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 [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xupQbcDYWhc 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 Arch]] 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.
* The third XY ending [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8M57AtXVQ4U DreamDream,]] which is also Serena's ImageSong.
* This XY ending, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vP2yKFuCT-g Peace Smile,]] is just so freaking adorable. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bb6RxKTIpk The full version]] is also extremely fun to listen to.
** The fourth ''XY'' ending, "GaoGao All Stars", is extremely catchy and cute as well. It also manage to remain intact for the dub of one of that region's Pikachu shorts (which has a ''Pokemon acapella'' version).

[[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 that [[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!

* [[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. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsUbar8I_KY Unova Team Rocket Motto Theme]] signifies them being ''even more threatening than before''.
* [[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. Notably, this was used in the Japanese first movie instead of "Brother My Brother", and it fits even better as the epic fight scene music.
* [[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=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=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=A_lwZC_iKF4 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.
* Johto's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofVwGpugOs0 Victory Battle Theme]]. Essentially the precursor to "The Heroes of Hoenn" and no less grand.

[[folder: Movies]]
* For starters, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xQP33kp4LM all of the title themes]]. They give you a taste of the epicness that is to come from the movie you are about to watch.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClrcZr3gjSw remix]] of the original title theme from ''Pokémon: The First Movie''. GAH.
* Japanese Mewtwo carries a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJmpV6ncjrM terrifying]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcFJPDsDk1Y organ]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyjH-iZX_jk motif]] that lets that the audience know that it means business. One can get a sense of how powerful Mewtwo is just by the music alone.
* "[[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=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!
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jvq6iI2bqk That Which Has Life]] from the Japanese first movie. The sadness of the Pokémon killing each other, the epicness of Mewtwo vs. Mew, and the drama of Ash climbing into the stadium while Pikachu is being beaten by its clone is demonstrated perfectly. Even fans of the dub soundtrack admit that they wish that this wasn't cut out.
* [[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. From the Japanese version, there's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOi6_Km120Y Kaze to Issho ni]], sung by well known enka singer Sachiko Kobayashi. It's one of the loveliest theme songs ever.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHJa_om2nyk Pokémon 2000 version of the Orange Island Opening theme.]]
* [[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...
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5UxC3Zt5yE The World Turns To Ash]], the music that plays when Ash and his Pokémon fight their way to the last sphere and back. Especially the part starting at 2:48 when Lugia shows up to give Ash a ride.
** The big symphony version at the end of the movie, where Lugia (with Ash on his back) and the legendary birds are flying around amongst all these other Pokémon...
* Behold [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMf0p9AAixM four AWESOME tracks]] from movies 3 and 5 (Japanese soundtrack).
* [[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=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. From the Japanese version, there's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Csdz_7MUMfk Ashita Tenki ni Shite Okure]], which is one of the loveliest theme sings ever.
* [[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?]])
* The fifth movie's version of the ''Master Quest'' opening theme was quite memorable.
* [[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=np8e56Z6pGk Flygon's theme]] from Jirachi Wish Maker.
* [[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.
%%* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvvA0J6o_yM This Side of Paradise]] from Destiny Deoxys.
%%* 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=ukR58btmBr8 This song]] from Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.
* "[[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.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkcAfZei0rM "Together We'll Make A Promise"]] from ''Temple of the Sea'', a bittersweet song that perfectly suits a film which shows how hard saying goodbye is.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wakzjgR28j0 ~~Capture On~~]] from the 9th movie.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHP8mGY7KSs "Oracion".]]
* [[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.
%%* The ending song, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A72KuWizWYs Mamoru Beki Mono]].
* [[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=vBrgqzjlzEg Arishia.]] Although a pretty short song, it's still pretty powerful.
* The lovely dub ending theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-D0aOMlDs4 I'll Always Remember You]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BrKxfaBJsk If We Only Learn]] from Arceus and The Jewel of Life is one of the most beautiful songs to come out of the anime.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPrSy79JvZc Egao (Smiling Face).]] The Japanese Ending theme to Pokémon: Genesect and the Legend Awakened.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrRjaKKqJAo This Is A Beautiful World]] from Giratina and the Sky Warrior gives a beautiful uplifting message of the simple beauty in the world that many miss.
* The Japanese version of the [[Anime/PokemonVolcanionAndTheMechanicalMarvel Volcanion movie]] comes with an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NE3LsYQqpag updated version of XY&Z]], with an extra brass section making it even more epic. The English Dub gives us the series' counterpart 'Stand Tall' as a full remixed song, and it [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uGt01wqgWE is awesome!]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05obJF68_S8 Oracìon Theme ~Let's Walk Together~]], the ending theme to ''I Choose You''. They brought back Asuca Hayashi, singer of "Chiisaki Mono", and wrote a song for her based off "Oracíon" from ''The Rise of Darkrai'', basically making the song 100% musical fanservice. And it is glorious. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qu1PHhhaywg The English variant]] is just as beautiful, but for different reasons. It's sung by Haven Paschall, Serena's dub actress, and it even sounds like the song is saying how special Ash is. Because of these factors, it's hard not to hear it as a declaration of love to him.

[[folder: Pokemon Origins]]
* ''Anime/PokemonOrigins'' doesn't have a large soundtrack, but it possesses a number of great remixes from the past gen along with a few new pieces to coincide with Mega Evolution.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dd52jjeukpM Their take on the classic title screen]], for starters. It is a breath of fresh air that does the original justice. That is, unless oyu aren't too fond of dubstep.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2b04mYOPI8 Welcome to the world of Pokemon]]. It's just as welcoming as the original game, and the appearance of Professor Oak drove many an old school fan to nostalgic tears.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McvxwMPdHig Lavender Town]] got a tranquil and serene piano remix. Just mind the creepiness that still pervades to tune.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ltOaOKhmwY The Wild Pokemon Battle]]. For the nostalgic, this remix really sells it and drives the epicness home and makes one want to go and battle wild pokemon.
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZU1HEDuultc trainer battle theme]] remixes the original anime version and makes it more badass. It's more serious, and it keeps people on their toes more while battling difficult opponents.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeZJBsAp8js The Gym Leader Battle theme]]. Much more serene compared to game's version at first before going into a more triumphant tune. Bonus points for playing during the battle against Brock and in the montage where Red defeats Koga, Sabrina, and Blaine.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZuTcK51FEQ Gym Leader Last Pokemon]]. Better known as "Charmander vs. Onix", it plays in the SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome where Charmander, who has barely any health left, is the last thing standing between Red and defeat. Listening to this after watching the battle itself can cause one to suddenly relive the SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4xxaoIzZJs Giovanni's Theme]]. You know something bad is going on when this theme plays. The second part is more sinister since Giovanni is getting ready to hand you your ass.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLlCFo0wxrE Rival Encounter]]. Not quite as smug sounding as the games, per se, but a lot more subdued and serene. As the song progresses, however, it starts to sound like Gary Motherf**king Oak's just grinning and getting ready to wreck your team.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Yf0GpAueUc Champion Battle]]. The final battle against Gary has never sounded so epic since the original games.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8G5HIJkkxU0 Mewtwo Battle]]. A more heart-pounding remix of the Wild Pokemon battle. It starts off ominous as the battle against [[TrueFinalBoss Mewtwo]] draws near, and keeps up the intensity going from there.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSnu5sjCfqM Mega Charizard X Theme]]. Also known as the Mega Evolution theme, it is perfect for when your most powerful pokemon [[spoiler:gets his HeroicSecondWind and uses his SuperMode for the first time against a previously invincible opponent, proving they're Not So Invincible After All.]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAdX5g5PpVw Gionvanni Final Battle]]. Not only does it play right when Giovanni [[spoiler:begins his HeelFaceTurn, but it also does an incredible job of showcasing the epic conflict between Red's Charizard and Giovanni's Rhydon.]]

[[folder: Pokémon Mystery Dungeon specials]]
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPhRefvdWks opening]] for the first anime special is short but sweet.
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fbhS4e-dEE opening]] for the second anime special is pretty epic, and about five times as long as that of the first.

[[folder: Miscellaneous]]
* In honor of ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', Music/{{Pogo}} produced the song [[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.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSOiTpBkKq4 "What Kind of Pokémon are You?"]] is the type of song that ''never'' loses its relevance, no matter how much the franchise expands.

[[AC: Other]]
[[folder: Official remixes]]
* In 1999, Nintendo released a (fairly obscure) album of some of the music in ''Red and Blue'' called ''Pokémon Hikerukana?'' (Can You Play Pokémon?). The mixes of the [[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. [[https://loudr.fm/release/pokemon-reorchestrated-kanto-symphony/ytsMr The Opening Theme, Pallet Town, S.S. Anne, Vermilion City and more.]] We weren't prepared for this.[[note]]Fuchsia City is misspelled as Fuschia City, though...[[/note]]

* Another game by Game Freak called ''VideoGame/HarmoKnight'' has a few bonus levels set to Pokémon 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.

* An 8-bit remix of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUB9cylSMjM Unova Elite Four theme.]] Just as intense as the original, if not more.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wp1RN1MuZK8 This Altru Tower remix]] is amazing.
* Try [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EG9c9GwQSK4 this awesome chiptune version]] of Miror B.'s theme from ''Pokémon XD''. Or [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpPKIetSOe0 this]] remix that fuses it together with various Champion themes.
%%* Ladies and gentlemen, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3I0oYAra-0k Driftveil City Rock!]]
%%* Driftveil City [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKXHTxj3wcM trap.]]
* 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]].
** 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... grand, 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/watch?v=oqqXE6oHSLw Blue vs. Red]] takes the first two champion themes and blends them together seamlessly (with a little bit the Dark Cave theme). It's just as epic as it sounds.
* [[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.]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lu_HdYU5JsU How about this]] mix of the ''RSE'' and ''ORAS'' versions of "Crossing the Sea"? It takes what made both unique and combines them into one epic package!
* Music/TayZonday of Chocolate Rain fame has done [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9Vjfi0Slbw his own cover of the Pokémon Theme]], and he nailed the song.
* How about a metal cover of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=co_46ymyP9E RSE Vs. Gym Leader]]?
* [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAKdbp1bKIdjqjRLIKvXCRA NateWantsToBattle]], who makes any awesome covers and original songs and parody songs, joined forces with LetsPlay/{{Markiplier}} and Yungtown to cover [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfEz8hkyTHc 2BA Master]]. Yes, it's as awesome as it sounds. Amusingly, the song was updated slightly to include Fairy, Steel, and Dark in the segment where the types are all named, but it left out Poison, just as was done in the original song:
-->But first U gotta know about the different types:\\
Grass, Fire, Ground, Steel, Electric,\\
Water, Rock, Flying, Ice, Normal, Bug,\\
Ghost, Fighting, Dragon, Dark, and Fairy-\\
Don't forget about Psychic!
* Dear sweet Arceus, the Mark de Groot English cover of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBZna0xAhTY XY & Z]] somehow manages to be better than the original! This is in part because it keeps several of the elements of the Japanese original in the form of {{Woolseyism}}s, such as the ikuzo/ikuzed[[labelnote:*]] Japanese for "Let's Go", with the "zo" replaced with the international pronunciation of the letter "Z" as zed.[[/labelnote]] pun becoming "Let'Z Go" and references to Pokemon abilities and moves in the lyrics including "Our hearts are burning hotter than [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Flame_Charge_(move) Flame Charge]]", "Our [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Steadfast_(Ability) steadfast]] hearts," and "[[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Mold_Breaker_(Ability) Breaking the mold]] will let our passion [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Discharge_(move) discharge]]", as well as the translation de Groot is using emphasizing the relationship between Ash and his Greninja more so than the original lyrics.
* This [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uarIcqkWomQ "Cumbia" remix of the Lavender Town theme]] (Cumbia is a genre of music that's fairly popular throughout Latin America). Though opinions on Cumbias can be... polarizing, to say the least, what's remarkable is that it takes the poster child for [[{{NightmareFuel/Pokemon}} infamously creepy things in the series]] and makes it ''[[NightmareRetardant not scary at all]]''. Good luck taking Lavender Town creepypastas seriously ever again.
* This [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PHfocse8mo cover]] of "Alola!!" is nothing short of simply amazing. Sounds almost like an official English version of the song.
* This [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEReQMwufgE cover]] of "Pose". Very catchy and still keeps with the idea of the original version to name off all of the Z-Moves.

[[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 ''Pokémon 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 Pokémon.
** [[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 Pokémon. 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.
* During the 2016 Pokémon Worlds tournament in CA, people were infamously unable to attend the tournament to watch; only people who were participating could enter. Pokemon [[LetsPlay LPer]] shofu filmed [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vo9vuhsrItc Pokemon Cypher 2016]] near the area - a rap collaboration containing 12 different verses from various Nerdcore artists and Pokemon [[Website/YouTube YouTubers]]. [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome It's just as awesome as it sounds.]] The same creator led the [[https://soundcloud.com/wdfamusic/sets/trap-ketchum Trap Ketchum album]] a year later, an [[UpToEleven entire album]] of Pokémon-related Nerdcore tracks. The album was praised by both fans of the series and even people who have never played it in their life, and for good reason.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/user/saPower1000/videos .Misc]] has made a ton of fanmade songs for Pokémon as well as ''Monster Hunter'', and they all sound great, in particular the Ultra Beasts' themes and Necrozma's two themes.
