Best Pokemon Theme Songs
The Top Ten
How is this not #1?! Best and most nostalgic theme by far! All the others have cheesy lyrics and light music. Not this one! It's got rocking' GUITAR, a great beat, and a phenomenal singer with great lyrics, and all of those traits rolled up into one make possibly the best theme in Pokemon history. Incredible theme that will surely stand the test of time.
It's the best! First one ever for pokemon! Everyone that loves pokemon MUST know it! I can't help but sing every time I hear it POKEMON GOTTA CATCH EM ALL!
This this the same as the 'Original Theme song' option, by the way. This should totally be the first. I mean others weren't awful, but holy hell this is nostalgia and greatness at its finest.

This song is really the best Pokemon theme song, it teaches you to carry on, it's about your destiny, it teaches you to follow your heart, it's about never giving up, even if you fail, don't get upset, instead make a fresh new start, and most importantly always follow your dreams, if you fail, try once more, if you fail again, try twice, life is all about following your heart against your mind, mind always wanders in different directions, but always listen to heart. Never give up, because life is a very long time and make the best use of your life, this song will really inspire U. Always remember crying won't help. Always look at your present and future, find your own destiny, wish you good luck!
While this one would likely hit my top 3-5, keep in mind that the original's votes are split (14% for "Indigo League" and 8 for "Original Pokemon Theme Song") - making it the clear victor, which I would lend my agreement to. However, when I wouldn't vote a song this good #1, you know how good the general quality of these themes is.
I Agree this must be first. Well this song is describes the main characters and the Pokemon what are they all about. masters train their Pokemon to be unbeatable. this is what all Pokemon about. this song suits Pokemon characters. listen the song with your ear and you will find the difference between other songs and this song. please listen to it.
This one is my favourite!V 21 Comments
This song is truly great. It has great, empowering lyrics and very motivating. By the way, Indigo League is probably so high because of nostalgia. Don't get me wrong, it's a great song, but it isn't the 2nd best.
Best of best it rocks I like it very much it have to be number 1 I got 1st price
By singing this theme song in school it really rocks
It's all about your destiny
Pokemon songs are really good, they teach you to believe in yourself, always keep going. They really inspire you a lot. They tell us to move on and always follow your destiny. My favorite Pokemon song is :if only tears could bring you back to me. The song is really good, listen to it as soon as possible.
Just love the guitar in this one. with an epic solo. to be honest I liked th OG theme best but this has been my jam lately.V 7 Comments
I WANT TO BE THE VERY BEST! NO ONE EVER WAS! TO CATCH THEM IS MY REAL TEST! TO TRAIN THEM IS MY CAUSE! I WILL TRAVEL ACROSS THE LANDS SEARCHING FAR AND withE! THESE Pokemon WILL UNDERSTAND, THE POWER THAT'S INSIDE! Pokemon! GOTTA CATCH EM! IT'S YOU AND ME! I KNOW ITS MY DESTINY. Forgot the rest of the lyrics sorry.
Such an inspiring song! If it's not number one just because of the actual song and lyrics, it should be number one just for being the first theme. Isn't this how it all started?
How can this not be the best theme! It had the best lyrics, the best tune and the best kick to it! This theme was the only Pokemon theme to have ever won an award.
Its catchy fun and easy to memorize. It talks about friendship, determination and success in the making.
And it's the only Pokemon theme people from all generations can remember
Come on! Seriously this should be so much higher. It should take the diamond and pearl spot. If I follow my heart I can't be wrong and my heart says this song is top five material
Yeah this is definitely top 5 material. It gives whoever listens to it so much hope. Come on! If I follow my heart I can't be wrong and my heart says this is top 5 stuff people!
This should definitely be much, much higher. This is my personal favourite. I just loved it. It was my favourite series and really nostalgic to me as a kid.
This is the best as the lyrics suddenly change in between to extreme and is the best energy booster inside everyone
Come on this song is great. It has a great beat and really inspirational lyrics too.
This song is opening #6 (i wanna be a hero)
But the sample is crapV 7 Comments
I liked this one but still like the original theme better. But the Johto song IS catchy and fun!
It's a whole new world listening to this one (I got that from the theme song)
Other than Indigo League this is the best song
WHAT THIS IS THE JHOTO JOURNEYS PEOPLE! IT SHOULD BE NUMBER 2! everybody wants to be a master, everybody wants to test your skills... LOOK IT UP AND LISTEN RIGHT NOW.V 10 Comments
Taking some memorable lyrics from the original theme and adding its own funky spin to it makes for a fantastic, catchy theme. Even though my favorite seasons were later on in the series, this particular theme is my favorite.
Obviously Indigo League is the best but I would say this one is a close second. 'Born to be the very best' -- how can you not love this song?!
Johto League will forever have a special place in my heart. All the theme songs are great but Johto's is the most memorable.
It's an ok song but Indigo league is totally betterV 5 Comments
Galactic battle theme is a great song
I think galactic battles should take this one's place. It's alright but that is so much better.
Guys THIS IS NOT GALACTIC BATTLES OR BATTLE DIMENSION. the real diamond and pearl one was the bad one, the rap, and is opening #10
This should so be galactic battles, it's sooo much betterV 11 Comments
Best theme song ever - N64Dude
Best theme song ever! Back when the Pokemon Anime was good - TheUmbreon
Thi song should be number 4
great songV 2 Comments
This may be one of the Japanese openings, but this is clearly the greatest. - Frouze
Pokemon themes are not just a theme. They are supposed to be some kind of inspiring song, like black and white, battle frontier, master quest, indigo league and johto league. But this is some of the best I've seen.
I love this song! Got me so hyped for the episode
I love the lyrics in this one, this should be much higher than Diamond and Pearl (the original DP intro)V 4 Comments
The newer songs. Gives us a taste of the development of the series and how it has changed. Showing the different type of friends and rivals he has as the series developed form the indigo league all the way to the diamond and pearl franchise
Come on! This should easily be too 5. It gives me so much hop and my heart is filled with pride when I sing it. After listening to that song, I'll never give up and I'll hold my head up
I agree this should be top 5. It gives so much hope to whoever listens to it. After that song I'll never give up and I'll hold my head up.
This is definitely my favorite song, besides the season 1 song. I think it just captures the spirit of Pokémon perfectly and it suits well to the rivalry between Ash and Paul. Also, I prefer the theme songs that are based on a guitar. It gives ao much energy and make you believe you can do it!V 6 Comments
Yeah this deserves to higher. Pulls the heartstrings
Love this song it's my favorite meant to vote for this one my fault
This and Galactic battles are easily my favourites. Deserve much higher praise.
Better than the original Indigo League theme song, (the remix). Not too much better though.
I wanna be the very best that no one ever was... Indigo Plato 1999V 2 Comments
Yeah pretty catchy. I gotta admit I do find myself singing "we come so far we've fought so hard to get where we are" It gives me a bit of courage when I'm thinking about quitting. It's not my favourite and comes from a disappointing region but it should still be acknowledged
Can't get it out of my head
Probably the best opening in probably the worst Pokemon Season. - SuperAlienGamer

Great song wish it was longer though
Message for below: it's not a ripoff. The Kalos region was meant to recapture the fans of the first few games/seasons. It's pretty good, but not great.
Ripoff of original theme song - N64Dude
Best theme song everV 7 Comments
THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST! How is it 17th?! It just gives me confidence to watch and listen to the theme! Though that could be because it sounds like most of my favorite music...
I love this song! Though it is not the best it is on my top ten list! JUST IF IT WAS LONGER!
I love the high pitched gotta ketch them all
It must be first!V 10 Comments
People say it is freaky, but I enjoy second best to sunyshore City. I like the high pitch tune and the beats.V 3 Comments
The song is full of power and I really love it. Should listen to whole song (fan made) the song is fantastic I wanted to make even a learning version for the end of primary school. Best song ever
This deserves to be higher up its a good theme
That opening is stuck in my head!
WHAT? THIS IS THE BEST ONE!V 2 Comments
