Worst Pokemon Theme Songs

Maybe I should say "Least Good", because none of them were too bad, to be honest...

The Top Ten

1 We Will Be Heroes - Battle Dimension

The woman singing this sounded like she was dying

The season is cool but I hate the opening

It sounds like crap. WE WILL BE HEROES...

Lol my reaction after I watched this was da fk?

2 Battle Cry (Stand Up!) - Galactic Battles

WHY THE HELL are battle cry, we will be heroes and we will carry on at the top? These theme songs are AMAZING!

Why are the Sinnoh theme songs on here? The Unova theme songs should be numbers 1, 2 and 3 - N64Dude

Waht this one is good but it is better in Arceus and the Jewel of Life

3 We Will Carry On! - Sinnoh League Victors
4 Its Always You and Me - Adventures In Unova

WAY too over the top, too much emphasis on Friendship and all the stuff we already know about. Nothing about enjoying the adventure like the other songs.

This song is pure crap, make it higher

This theme is not that great.

Put it higher The singers sound like they’re dying.
And so am I from The cringe.

5 Diamond and Pearl - Diamond and Pearl

Why is this song at number 7?

It should be HIGHER! I can't stand the rap intro! And anyone who utters a compliment to this song, keep your opinions to yourself!

Hate it. Hate it. Hate It. HATE It! HATE IT!

People voting up Battle Cry. GUYS. BATTLE CRY isn't THE TERRIBLE RAP ONE, THIS IS!

Am I the only one here who actually likes this theme song?
So what if it's rap?
It's still awesome either way.
But that's just my opinion. - Yungstirjoey

6 Black and White - Black & White

This song is just so boring, and too much emphasis on friendship. No adventure, no sense of rivalry.

Worst theme song EVER

This one was awful

7 Rival Destinies- Rival Destinies

Who the hell put this on here? Probably someone who just can't accept misty may and brock have gone. the original series is never coming back, so just get over it and focus on the new episodes! The unova series is really really good if you just give it a chance!

The unova series was awful, this should be higher

8 Born to Be a Winner - Johto League Champions

Worst pokemon song ever BY FAR! "Let's do this...", like he is hot crap. Another thing is, the way he say "johto! ", then "Pokemon, Johto! " just sounds so lame, almost like a boy band vibe. Lastly, they were lazy with the "template": BORN TO.. FILL IN THE BLANK. It's hard to convey the meaning of all this, but hopefully, if you share my hatred towards this song, you can understand and relate to this.

Really lazy songwriting in terms of lyrics the only good things about this song are stolen from the original "gotta catch em all" Kanto opening

My only beef with this song is that a huge part of it has been taken from "Gotta catch'em all" - jimmy12lee

By far my favorite
I actually think that this was better than the original, especially the movie version - Yungstirjoey

9 Under the Alolan Sun


10 P-O-K-E-M-O-N

UGH get it out of my head! With 720 Pokemon, WHO WANTS TO LISTEN THIS!

"Gotta catch'em, Gotta catch'em, Gotta catch'em All, Pokemon! "
A god-awful song (more like a childish rap); luckily this one was not an opening theme. - jimmy12lee

The Contenders

11 I Wanna Be the Very Best - Pokemon Indigo

I can see how this is the worst song ever, because it's too overplayed and in the XY series, the song may have been updated, but I still hate it. the only time I liked it, was when it was played in the opening credits for that one Pokemon movie where Ash and the gang meet Hoopla, which I can't remember the name of, and also because it was longer and not cut short like how it was when the Indigo League saga starts an episode.

It's actually alright.

It's not a bad song
