"You'll teach me, and I'll teach you."
Pokémon 2.B.A. Master is a 1999 music album based off the Pokémon: The Original Series. It's the first English soundtrack to the series.

The album features thirteen songs by 4Kids Entertainment. These songs were featured on the "Pikachu's Jukebox" segment at the end of Kanto episodes.

This album provides examples of:

  • Early Installment Weirdness: "Double Trouble" dates back to when Giovanni's voice was disguised.
  • Friendship Song: Both "My Best Friends" and "Together Forever" are about Ash's bond with his companions and Pokémon.
  • Pep-Talk Song: "You Can Do It (If You Really Try)" is the album closer, and is just as motivational as the title implies.
  • Puppy Love: "Misty's Song" is about 10-year old Misty's feelings for her friend Ash.
  • Series Continuity Error: "2B A Master" lists Flame as a type (redundant with Fire) instead of Poison.
  • Ship Tease: "Misty's Song" is a non-canon song about how Misty is in love with Ash but doesn't know how to reveal her feelings.
  • Villain Song: "Double Trouble" is sung by Jessie and James. It's about Team Rocket's prowess and how the trio plans on capturing Pikachu.
