Best Gen 7 BGM?

    As Gen 7 comes to a close, a new generation will take its place. In celebration, I'm looking back at the music of Gen 7. Which tunes in Sun/Moon and Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon (not counting Let's Go) stood out the most to you? Here are my personal favourites:

    • Lush Jungle - I loved the zen vibes I got from this one. The xylophone (?) kind of reminds me of raindrops falling on leaves, which sometimes happens in this part of Alola.
    • Hau'oli City - The day version is bright and happy, while the night version is relaxing with its lounge-jazz sound. I prefer the day version a little more, however.
    • Malie City - The Far Eastern flavour of this tune kind of reminds me of Ecruteak City in Johto, especially its HG/SS variant. This is most likely because Malie was inspired by Johto's architecture.
    • Seafolk Village - I think it just fits the place for some reason. I like the night version better, because it's pretty calming to listen to.
    • Vast Poni Canyon - It reminds me of going on a big adventure, like Indiana Jones. :D
    • Totem Pokémon Battle - Those drums are so intense. I like the bit just before the song loops again, when they go into full-on ‘boss’ mode.
    • Tapu Battle - Sometimes you hear what sounds like "guardian" throughout the song, which is a perfect fit as you're battling the guardians of the Alolan islands. It has a bit of Hawaiian music in it, too.
    • Ultra Necrozma Battle - Organs. What else? I think this is the first 'true' boss battle theme in Pokémon - you're saving Alola from this colossal beast that's devouring all the light in it, and it also devoured arguably the most famous character in the whole of Gen 7 - Cosmog, AKA Nebby.

    Ignition I had no standards yet I’m still disappointed lol

    This is a hard question because I feel like every track in SM/USUM is the best. I’ll give a “few”:
    -Vs Totem Pokèmon: Honestly my favorite song in Pokèmon. The pure adrenaline rush I felt when this first played speaks for itself.
    -Vs Light Trio/(Dusk/Dawn/Ultra) Necrozma: All of the battles against the main Alola trio give the feeling of fighting a Legendary flawlessly
    -Vs Mother Beast/Guzma: Shows off the main antagonists and their warped mentalities
    -Xurkitree’s US (name evades me atm): idk why

    If you listen carefully to the beginning of the Gen 7 wild Pokémon music, you’ll hear a bit of the Totem Pokémon theme in it. Also, when you defeat a Totem, the victory music also sounds like the Island Kahuna battle music. I kind of liked how Gen 7 linked every bit of music to each other in some way.

    I dislike most of Gen VII's music in general, yet even I can't deny that Malie City's background music is quite lovely.
