    Maybe the song that will be used at the start of Mega Charizard VS Ash-Greninja is that remix of XY&Z from episode #28 & #32, then it'll switch to a nostalgic opening theme song when the match is about to finish.

    Save it for the goodbye episode. They need to pull something dramatic here. Most likely it'll be XY&Z again, but I would love if something like Type: Wild or Spurt or some instrumental was played instead.

    Volt is probably it. (or Mega Volt)

    As you said, XY&Z has already been used against Sawyer, it'd be too repetitive to use it again in this episode.

    Although, XY&Z is basically Ash-Greninja's theme song (the movie remix is named "Ash-Greninja is on the scene") so it might not be surprising to hear it AGAIN.

    Mezase Pokémon Master should be the ultimate song for the culmination of 20 years of traditional Pokémon League tournaments.

    Aw, and I thought you were going to link to an English cover of one of the Japanese themes.

    I kind of hoped before last week's episode that for Greninja VS Sceptile we'd hear the XY&Z remix in full and for the Greninja VS Charizard battle they'd play the full original version, including all the lyrics. The latter could still happen, I guess, seeing as they haven't really done it that way for a while (well yes they had the final chorus but that's a little different to what I'm saying).

    It's not like they haven't been repetitive with insert songs in the past, there was a period of time in early XY where it felt like Volt was played every second episode.

    Yeah I don't know why we got some kind of "fairy" (really don't know how else to describe, and by fairy I mean literally fairy, like pixies music, or that lighthearted, fantasy type music) music that came off more like it was for Sawyer than Ash.

    But I don't know music at all.

    You mean that part in the golden field/at the start of the battle? They played XY&Z in full after that finished but only had the lyrics in the final chorus. It's the second part that I thought would be different. First part was fine for me.

    That's part of the "vs. Gym Leader's Last Pokémon!" BGM from Best Wishes.

    Speaking of which I want my damn BW/XY OST, wonder how much we'll have to wait. They're probably reusing some of them for the S/M series

    Type: Wild is my #1 pick. Mezase would be good too for historical reasons, though I'm wondering if they might do a new version of it next year for the anniversary.

    I mean they could always have a remix, either the existing one or new, version of XYZ playing for this one

    Ash win the kalos league because in Alola there are not gym leaders or elite four

    To me it does make sense in a way but you cant go by that logic.

    Well it IS kinda Ash's last chance to win a traditional league if Alola doesnt have any of those, it would be a huge letdown for him to move onto a new system when he couldnt even win once in the old one.

    Wait is the island challenge thing all there is in the next region?

    To be honest, I have almost no doubt in my mind that XY&Z will be played during Ash-Greninja Vs. Megazard X. Does anyone know if the movie version of it is any different? If it were up to me, I'd love to hear songs like Spurt! added into the mix (But I know that when BW came along, they stopped using music from the last 4 gens).

    Actually Ash would win because the writers wanted him to win. Has nothing to do with next region in my opinion.

    Honestly, the best song to play in the finals would be Mezase Pokémon Master. It's only fitting.

    I also agree that Mezase Pokemon Master should play during Greninja vs Zard X battle, I mean what other way could they possibly make this battle outdo the hype that was Greninja vs Megaceptile otherwise?

    I agree. From what I heard of the movie version, it sounds almost the exact same but with some trumpets thrown in. This "remix" everyone seems to want looks to be a track on the movie soundtrack, but there's no vocals or anything. It actually seemed...relatively boring. In any case, they can still use XY&Z for the final battle and have it be different by maybe using the full song with vocals all the way through. We've yet to have that. (Also, "too close"? Didn't stop them from using it within a time span of 7 episodes 4 times more or less...)

    XY&Z seems to be Ash and Greninja's song these days...or just Ash's.
