Best Pokemon Theme Songs

The Top Ten

1 Advanced Battle

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!

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.

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.

While I love the original theme this is my favorite, I know because it's the only one I can listen to on repeat without getting sick of hearing it. It has so much energy and great animation plus it just feels the most alive of all the theme songs. It gets me psyched to play the Pokemon games.

2 Indigo League

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.

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.

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!

The original song! Very nostalgic and the best song in my opinion.

3 Master Quest

My fave Pokemon season. Always gets me pumped up for Sword and Shield.

Best lyrics and best music. This is my favourite Pokemon theme song of all time.

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

4 Galactic Battles Galactic Battles Cover Art

This perfectly fits the spirit of the Gen IV series, which was probably one of the best seasons out there. Also, this series featured the best group of heroes: Misty and Iris were infuriating, Max and Serena were the devil's hellspawns and should have never existed, and Cilan was annoying, but Brock was always hilarious and Dawn had this “best friends” dynamic with Ash that pumped up how much of an incredible character she was (Clemont and Bonnie were funny too, but not as much as Brock). I would definitely pay to see the Gen IV squad reunited again.

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.

5 Original Pokemon Theme Song


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.

Such an inspiring song how can this not be number 1 this song is my all time favourite

6 Pokemon Advanced Pokemon Advanced Cover Art

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)

Only #11? come on, this should be in the top five at least.

7 Johto Journeys

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

Ok, this intro could be the best but to me its not catchy enough.

8 Diamand and Pearl

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

Diamond and Pearl theme is actually well put out that it has a great beat to it. I like this really well.

9 Johto League Champions

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 may be a small detail, but I think what makes it my favorite is when Ash jumps off charizard and the "Joh-to" thing plays just perfectly in sync with ash and pikachu. I don't know why, it was just awesome. The lyrics are also super catchy

10 Orange Islands

Best theme song ever

Best theme song ever! Back when the Pokemon Anime was good

This one is my favourite, even more than the original

Thi song should be number 4

The Contenders

11 Sinnoh League Victors

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.

As the person below said, this should be in the top 5. It's great, with great lyrics and a very nice, catchy song.

12 Battle Dimension

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.


13 Battle Frontier

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.

If you strong you Survivor Andrea YouTube keep YouTube dreams alive

I like the tune at the beginning.

I love this song! Got me so hyped for the episode

14 Pokemon Theme Mewtwo Strikes Back Version

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 1999

Sexiest Pokemon theme song. Rawr.

love it

15 It Always You & Me

Can't get it out of my head

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

Probably the best opening in probably the worst Pokemon Season.

I like the Intro and the song what's the show that good

16 Pokemon Stand Tall (XYZ)

I'm always singing this theme and it is always stuck in my head

I love this one the kalos is the best region by far it should be at the top

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!

17 Kalos Theme Song

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.

Great song wish it was longer though

Ripoff of original theme song

Bad version of the original

18 Lavender Town

I don't think it's scary. I even think it's relaxing.

Well, this is cool 2...

People say it is freaky, but I enjoy second best to sunyshore City. I like the high pitch tune and the beats.


19 Giratina Battle Music

Oh yes...

20 Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire - Battle! Giratina
21 Pokemon Black/White - Battle! Elite Four Pokemon Black/White - Battle! Elite Four Cover Art
22 Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire - Battle! Primal Kyogre/Groudon
23 Rival Destines

The best theme song except for adventures in unova
adventures in unova is better but I cannot find it

To be honest rival destinies is actually really good but it's brought down by everything else in unova thus it has a bad name. Higher please

The worst intro ever. Words aren't as good as the other intros.

Rival Destinies is just as bad as Black and White intro. Why does the Unova region has the crappiest intros, Pokemon, legendaries (except Kyurem), and protagonists besides Ash?!

24 Pokemon Unbeatable

This opening is so good that it's on this list twice

This is the same as #1... Advanced battle

this one is WAY to overrated

This is just the best

25 Advanced Challenge

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!

I don't know why I picked this
