Wow, I'm listening to the Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald soundtrack and...

People always talk about the trumpets but I like the timpani

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.


That track definitely doesn't hold as much impact as this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AZJ-cPcKtk

That is one of the rare themes in entire gaming that makes me shiver.

Gives great memories of grinding for Elite Four, then collecting Pokemon in the swarms, then finally Ev training. No other music have I spent so much time in.

To a lesser extent http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4teSiG_m44

Gen V has two epic final boss themes.


Finally for those who want to browse the most amazing themes of each gen heres a good list http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/AwesomeMusic/Pokemon

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.


Champion by far


Sorry, but FRLG takes the cake there :D

Meh FRLG is a bit too chaotic. It does fit the smug Rival but not the "stand in awe" kind of atmosphere that HGSS has. HGSS completely suits a champion. frlg doesn't. That's also why I like 3rd gen and 4th gen champion better than 1st gen too, but 1st gen would fit more if Blue/Gary was the villian of the game.

Also I take back what I said about Route 1 being the only memorable overworld, Pallet Town, Viridian City, Lavender Town (in a terrible terrible way and one that I wish to forget) are all memorable. Thing is most of the route themes sound the same in Gen 1.

This song was good enough to be remixed into Zekrom and Reshram themes.

Not as good as Dialga/Palkia and Giratina (which I recently realized was an amazingly distorted remix of the trainer theme) theme, those two. And the elite four theme which was one of the best had a remix of Gen 3's elite four.

Kyrum version of the battle is much better than Zekroms version. Dialga's/ Palkia's theme really only stood out to me in the brawl version.

As in BW2 version or the original BW version where the only difference was the constant bass line instead of elemental effects?

Brawl's version was bad because they had to have the Spear Tower theme injected into it which killed the momentum. Also the original had the omph sounds right before the rainbow violins while Brawl had stupid drum beats.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XcZQ6r2JEU this is awesome as hell, definitely one of the best overworld for Gen 3 (this is the brawl version)
