Top Ten Favorite Pokemon Theme Songs

I’ve been playing Pokemon recently. And I watched the newest movie. Pokemon was rebooted and now I feel old. So, I’m ranking my top ten Pokemon theme songs. Yes, this is very influenced by nostalgia. Don’t expect anything from Unova onwards, because I didn’t watch those seasons. I kind of want to now though…

I like pretty much every theme song from Pokemon (but the reboot of the original, and the first DP one are kind of EH).

I’ll color the text red for my favorite parts. I had trouble putting these in order, so its a general top ten I think.


1 – The Original Pokemon Theme Song

I wanna be the very best
Like no one ever was
To catch them is my real test
To train them is my cause

I will travel across the land
Searching far and wide
Each Pokémon to understand
The power that’s inside

Pokémon (Gotta catch ’em all), it’s you and me
I know it’s my destiny
Pokémon…ooh, you’re my best friend
In a world we must defend
Pokémon (Gotta catch ’em all), a heart so true
Our courage will pull us through
You teach me, and I’ll teach you
Pokémon
Gotta catch ’em all!
Gotta catch ’em all!
Gotta catch ’em all!

Yeah…

Ev’ry challenge along the way
With courage I will face
I will battle ev’ry day
To claim my rightful place

Come with me, the time is right
There’s no better team,
Arm in arm, we’ll win the fight
It’s always been our dream

Pokémon (Gotta catch ’em all), it’s you and me
I know it’s my destiny
Pokémon…ooh, you’re my best friend
In a world we must defend
Pokémon (Gotta catch ’em all), a heart so true
Our courage will pull us through
You teach me, and I’ll teach you
Pokémon
Gotta catch ’em all! (5×)

Pokémon (Gotta catch ’em all), it’s you and me
I know it’s my destiny
Pokémon…ooh, you’re my best friend
In a world we must defend
Pokémon (Gotta catch ’em all), a heart so true
Our courage will pull us through
You teach me, and I’ll teach you
Pokémon
Gotta catch ’em all!
Gotta catch ’em all!
Pokémon


2 – Pokemon Johto Journeys

(The 3rd Theme Song)

It’s a whole new world we live in
Pokémon Johto!

Everybody wants to be a master
Everybody wants to show their skills
Everybody wants to get there faster
Make their way to the top of the hill

Each time you try, gonna get just a little bit better
Each step you climb is one more step up the ladder

It’s a whole new world we live in
It’s a whole new way to see
It’s a whole new place with a brand new attitude
But you still gotta catch ’em all and be the best that you can be

Pokémon Johto!

Everybody wants to make a statement
Everybody needs to carve their mark
Stand alone in the victory circle
Stake their claim when the music starts

Give it all you’ve got! You can be the very best ever
Take your best shot! And what you’ll learn will come together

It’s a whole new world we live in
It’s a whole new way to see
It’s a whole new place with a brand new attitude
But you still gotta catch ’em all and be the best that you can be

Pokémon Johto!

It’s a whole new world we live in (live in)
It’s a whole new way to see (to see)
It’s a whole new place with a brand new attitude (attitude)
But you still gotta catch ’em all and be the best that you can be

Pokémon Johto! Yeah!

It’s a whole new world we live in
It’s a whole new way to see
It’s a whole new place with a brand new attitude
But you still gotta catch ’em all, and be the best that you can be

Pokémon Johto! Yeah!
Pokémon Johto! Oh!


3 – Pokemon Battle Frontier

(9th Theme Song)

Pokémon!
It’s a battle, win or lose
It’s the friends you make, it’s the road you choose

You’ve got the right stuff
So make your mind up
Find the courage inside of you

If you’re strong you’ll survive
And you’ll keep your dream alive
It’s the Battle Frontier
Pokémon!

Be the best you can be
And find your destiny
It’s the master plan
The power’s in your hand
Pokémon!

You’ve got the
Strength to win it
So stay in it
If you’re smart you can take it all

If you’re strong you’ll survive
And you’ll keep your dream alive
It’s the Battle Frontier
Pokémon!

Be the best you can be
And find your destiny
It’s the master plan
(It’s the master plan!)
The power’s in your hand
Pokémon!


4 – Pokemon Advanced Battle

(8th Theme Song)

Ohh oh-oh-oh oh-oh
I’m unbeatable

Walking down this endless highway
With nothing but my friends beside me
We’ll never give in, we’ll never rest
Advanced Battle is the ultimate test

From the earth to land
The sea and sky
They can never win, but they sure can try

Ohh oh-oh-oh oh-oh
I’m unbeatable
Pokémon
(Advanced Battle!)

Oh oh-oh-oh oh-oh
I’m undefeatable
From the stars and the ancient past
They come to play, but they’ll never last

Ohh oh-oh-oh oh-oh
I’m unbeatable
Pokémon
(Advanced Battle!)

Ohh oh-oh-oh oh-oh
I’m undefeatable
You think you’ll win, but soon you’ll see
You may beat some, but you can’t beat me

I’m undefeatable

There’s a feeling deep inside me
And it’s always there to guide me
It’s in my heart and in my soul
Leading me to the ultimate goal
You can try your best, this might be fun
You’ll go down to defeat before you’ve begun

Oh oh-oh-oh oh-oh
I’m unbeatable
Pokémon
(Advanced Battle!)

Oh oh-oh-oh oh-oh
I’m undefeatable
Every move, each attack you choose
You think you can win, but you’ll always lose

Oh oh oh
(Advanced Battle!)
I’m unbeatable

6 – Pokemon Advanced

(6th Theme Song)


A kid from Pallet Town with a brand new world to see
Don’t know what’s ahead but it won’t get the best of me
There’s so much to learn and battles to be won
I’ve advanced so far but still there’s always more to come

Take a step and I’m on my way…
Gonna start all over again

I wanna be a hero!
Pokémon: Advanced!
I’m on my way!
I wanna be a hero!
Give me just one chance…
And the future will decide…
If there’s a hero buried deep inside…
I wanna be a hero!
Pokémon!!


 7 – Pokemon Master Quest

(5th Theme Song)

Pokémon!
No time to question my moves
I stick to the path that I choose
Me and my friends are gonna do it right
You’ll never see us run away from a fight

To be a Master is my dream,
All I’ve got to do is believe

(And I believe)

I’ve got a chance to win
I’m on my way to victory
Pokémon!
I can be a Champion if I just believe
I’m on a Master Quest
Master Quest!
I want the whole world to see
I believe!
I’m gonna be the very best,
‘Cause all I’ve got to do is believe in me.

I believe
Pokémon!
I’m on a Master Quest
I want the whole world to see

No time to question my moves
I stick to the path that I choose
Me and my friends are gonna do it right
You’ll never see us run away from a fight

I believe!
I’ve got a chance to win
I’m on my way to victory
Pokémon!
I can be a Champion if I just believe
I’m on a Master Quest

I’m gonna be the very best,
‘Cause all I’ve got to do is believe in me.

8 – Pokemon Sinnoh League Victors

(12th Theme Song)

It’s about you,
It’s about me,
It’s about hope,
It’s about dreams.
It’s about friends that work together,
To claim their destiny.

It’s about reaching for the sky,
(Pokémon)
Having the courage,
And willing to try.

It’s about never giving up,
So hold your head up,
And we will carry on,
(Sinnoh League Victors)
Pokémon!


9 – Pokemon Galactic Battles

(11th Theme Song)

Sometimes it’s hard to know,
Which way you’re supposed to go.
But deep inside, you know you’re strong.
If you follow your heart, you can’t be wrong.

Sometimes it’s hard to see,
Just what’s your destiny.
But when you find the path that’s true,
You’ll know that’s the one for you.

Stand up!
(Stand up!)
For what is right.
Be brave!
(Be brave!)
Get ready to fight!
Hold on!
(Hold on!)
We’re friends for life.
And if we come, together as one,
Complete the quest, that we’ve begun,
We will win the battle!
Pokémon!

Woo-hoo!

The time is now, the game’s begun!
Together we will fight as one!
Each of us, in our own way,
Can make this world a better place.

Stand up!
(Stand up!)
For what is right.
Be brave!
(Be brave!)
Get ready to fight!
Hold on!
(Hold on!)
We’re friends for life.
And if we come together as one,
Complete the quest, that we’ve begun,
We will win the battle!
Pokémon!

Just when it seems that you are lost and all alone,
You will find the courage and the strength to carry on.
And if you fall along the way,
Have the faith you’ll be okay.
‘Cause your friends are there for you,
Reachin’ out to pull you through.

Stand up!
(Stand up!)
For what is right.
Be brave!
(Be brave!)
Get ready to fight!
Hold on!
(Hold on!)
We’re friends for life.
And if we come together as one,
Complete the quest, that we’ve begun,
We will win the battle!
Pokémon!


10 – Pokemon Advanced Challenge
(7th Theme Song)

Pokémon!

Every Trainer has a choice
To listen to that voice inside.
I know the battle may be long,
Winners may have come and gone –
but I will carry on!

Yeah, this dream will last forever,
And this dream will never die,
We will rise to meet the challenge every time.
(Advanced Challenge)
Yeah, this dream keeps us together,
This shows that you and I –
Will be the best that the world’s ever seen,
Because we always will follow this dream!

Pokémon!
