Don't even have a problem with trumpets and I think it has the worst soundtrack in Pokemon, although nothing past Gen 3 is very good in the regard.

It's alright.

Battle themes weren't the best, towns and routes were good though. Wouldn't say it's OMGamazeballseasilydabest. A lot of the songs sound very similar, primarily because of the soundfont I guess. Like I really can't recall off the top of my head the wild / trainer battle themes. And when I could I'd get them confused with each other. And I only remember the gym theme because of PWT bringing it fresh to my memory (in a different soundfont). A lot of the route themes kind of blur together for me too :/

I think the soundfont really does let it down. It's not bad, it's just everything sounds the same.

Gen 2/ Gen 5 are my favorite sound tracks followed by gen 1.

Gen 3/4 are pretty meh. The only thing I remember from those gens are battle themes. Though Dialga and Palika themes are awesome so are the legendary trio from RSE. As for routes and cites...yeah everything sounded the same in gen 3

Gen 4 has the best Route themes of the series in my opinion.
Gen 5 in comparison, has the best city themes in the series, Aspertia City alone is just lovely.

Take off your nostalgia goggles and listen! Pretty nice and varied stuff.

I'm inclined to agree actually.

Route 216 is my favourite DP piece.

Gen 4's route music blows the first 3 gens out of the water. Seriously route 209 and 201 are THE best overworld music ever in Pokemon. The only one I can remember other than that after 2 years of not touching Pokemon is Gen 1's Route 1 which is only because of the anime.

Personally Gen 4 for me also has the best wild Pokemon and trainer theme too both very narrowly beating Gen 1. Gen 1 destroys in gym leader though. Gen 3 is tied with 5 in elite four and Gen 2 has best champion. Team Galactic is best grunt though magma/aqua leader is amazing. Don't really listen to rival, guess its a tie between gen 3 and 4.

I do think this route is the best route song in the series, the remake really messed this track up IMO completely ruined the feel of it.

Let's see...

Gen 1: Best Gym Leader Theme.
Gen 2: ???
Gen 3: Best Legendary Themes
Gen 4: Best Route Themes
Gen 5: Best City Themes

Not really sure on what Gen 2 excels in, sound-wise.
