The first American opening. I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was...
High Touch. I-s-sho na-ra-ba, akirameru no wa hayaize! GO GO GO!
this instrumental version.
This classic from Johto's Karaokemon: "Pikachu! You know there is no other - I choose you! Because you are my brother..."
The Pokérap Catch em, catch em, gotta catch em all. GOTTA CATCH EM ALL, POKÉMON!
Not technically a song, but..."Prepare for Trouble! Make it Double!"...
Though actually it did have that neat evil background music backing it up, and that helped it reach Earworm status.
Though it seems a musical version exists. "We can cause a riot in Sunday school (Ooh, a riot!) and we'll have you believin', truth can be decievin' - do unto others is our golden ruuule!"
The Japanese opening for the Advanced Gen
Poke - Poke - Poke - Poke - Pokemon Ondo!
The Pokemon Johto Theme is incredibly catchy. Do do DOOT doot DOO DOOO!
Born To Be a Winner! (JOHTO!) Born to be a champion!
I Wanna Be A Hero! (Hero!) Pokémon Advanced!
We Will Be Heroes! We can change the world if we try!
And the SWEDISH version of above song. Even more earwormy!
And something from the Italian version... Win a, Win a Poké, Win a Pokémon...
Takeshi no Paradise. Lalalalala nante suteki na~.
Oooh, come on try to catch me...
This the dance of the Pokémon Advanced / you've got a chance with the Pokémon advanced (battle daaaaance~) and don't stop - can't stop the future~ ?!?
The 13th Japanese opening, The Greatest - Everyday, definitely.
OOOHH OH OH OH, OH-OH, I'm Unbeatable!
Pokémon - ADVANCED BATTLE!
And the Galactic Battles opening, Battle Cry ~Stand Up!~ The full version from Arceus and the Jewel of Life is one that will be stuck in your head for a while.
Laugh if you want, but... Jenny, Oh, Jenny, Joy, Oh Joy...
What kind of Pokémon are you? How do you do the things you doooo?
Make a Wish from the 6th movie
From the Korean dub, Dear My Friend from Giratina and the Sky Warrior.
Moeyo, Gizamimi Pichu! Have you · heard · that · rumor? That · Pokémon · everyone's curious · about!
And another from Korea, their first opening for Diamond and Pearl
Watashi Makenai! Haruka's Theme AKA I Won't Lose! May's Theme from the Advanced Generation.
Bokura Pichu Pichu Brothers from the Pichu Bros. Party Panic short on Pokémon Channel
That little song that Jigglypuff sings.
Poké-Poké-Poké-Poké-Kémon-Kémon-Kémon-Kémon-Poké-Poké-Poké- Poké-BATTLE ADVANCED!
Spurt, oh my god Spurt. Sekai no hiro sa teeee, owa
You know us as Team Rocket and we fight for what is wrong. We're tired of our motto so we thought we'd try a song...
We Will Carry On, the English edition of The Greatest- Everyday! isn't as good as the latter, but is certainly still catchy, in a battle-chant kind of way.
Pokémon World for the Orange Island arc....oh crap....HERE IT COMES. "SO YOU WANNA BE A MASTER?! OF POKéMON! DO YOU HAVE THE SKILLS TO BE-NUMBER ONE!?!?"
Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo, Pokemon Johto!
We Will Meet Again from the dub of Lucario And The Mystery Of Mew
A power ballad, so it's a given. When this troper got back into the anime, they physically weren't able to stop simultaneously singing it and crying because said movie is the last dubbed by 4Kids.
Till the end, I will be with you / We will go where our dreams come true / All the times that we have been through / You will always be my best friends
Diglett dig Diglett dig
Most of the transition clips from the short in the first movie seem to do this.
The Japanese opening for the newest season. MINNA DAIJOBU!!
Brother, my brother~.
On the subject of the first movie: " Vacation". It will never leave your head ever.
Oh GOD are those Italian themes addictive! Probably one of the best examples is the one for the Johto season. (Gotta catch'em all)/You gotta catch'em aall! You gotta catch'em aall! You gotta catch'em all! ALWAYS POKÉMON!
YOU ARE THE ONE!/Kakegae nai tomodachi de/Sore ijou no sonzai de/Mae wo muku chikara wo sotto kureru/ Kimi ga suki da yo
The 1st ending from Best Wishes. Narase! Narase! Kokoro no FAN-FA-RE! Hibiki, todoke, ima takaranai, Makete kara owarun janai! Kitto, kitto, hajimaru sa; Kimi no, mune no, mannake de!
All three Johto songs. Especially OK!
Pokemon World (We all live). Even better than the version used for the theme tune in the main series!
No song in the series comes CLOSE to the amount of sheer rockitude and badassery of Pokemon Advance Adventure. Its so amazing, its one of the only songs 4Kids decided to keep from the original version.
It may not have been a part of the series proper, but I have had Don't Say You Love Me stuck in my head off and on for approximately seven years.
Aside from the already mentioned Pokeraps, the Hoenn Pokerap. "P to the O to the K to the E M O N!"
The US Diamond & Pearl first season opening. "Pokemon! Po-ke-mon! It's all about the challenges...."
I was born to rule the world, and I almost achieved that goal!
It's not always Black and White, but your heart always knows what's right!
Who could forget Polkamon by "Weird Al" Yankovic from Pokemon: the Movie 2000?
Tears After the Cloudy Weather is a soft instrumental infamous for being in a good number of the early Tear Jerker scenes. It's one of those songs you listen to over and over again.
Episode N's ending theme will burrow itself in DEEP straight away
It's a battle win or lose / It's the friends you make, it's the road you choose
And reused for May's guest appearance in DP, though slightly changed ("Instead of "It's the Battle Frontier", the song goes "Let the battle begin")
A new adventure, another day / One more challenge that comes our way
V (Volt), the Japanese opening for X and Y.
"Unda de evening sky, with da moon high up above, I learned to speak human, cuz dis cat's got puppy looove..." The Japanese full version also counts.
