Favorite Gen 5 BGM

Not open for further replies.


Never Say Forever
One other track from Gen 5 that I have recently learned to appreciate is a Summer Remix of Lacunosa Town which is never played in any of the games but appears on the official soundtrack (as a bonus track, I would guess). It can be listened to on Youtube here or an extended version here. Listening to this made me appreciate Lacunosa Town a bit more, would have loved to hear this track in the games but then it wouldn't have been as special as it now is, so I don't mind.


N's battle BGM and Driftveil's BGM were my favs from Black & White and my fav from Black 2 & White 2 was the Virbank BGM.

Honestly this is tough. Gen 5 had some of the best music so far!

But it's a toss up between Bianca's theme and Opelucid City. White version that is.
Bianca because she was so sweet and her theme (IMO) captures her essence perfectly!
Opelucid City because it's charming, quaint and makes you feel like your in an old world place. Getting away from the craziness of the modern world I mean :)


Island Challenger
Umm IF I had to choose for battle, it would definitely have to be Plasma battle theme on Black 2/White 2. The music is sick and so fast paced. It really brings in the adrenaline.

And the other one I like is actually the Entralink music. It's epic. It has like a climactic feel to it.


Badge Collector
I like Unwavering Heart (N's theme) from Black and White. It is sorrowful yet soothing. It captures the innocence and the power of the journey.

From B2W2 I'd have to say Vs the Champion. It reminds me of Mario Kart but also with every chord the intensity increases and it just seems to perfectly match the tone of the battle.

I'm also partial to a bit of ♫ └༼ຈل͜ຈ༽┐♫ O E A E A U I E O E A ♫ └༼ຈل͜ຈ༽┐ (Village Bridge)


Virbank Complex, Victory Road, Rival Hugh Battle, Reversal Mountain, Strange House, Route 10, Route 23, PWT Finals Battle, Colress Battle, Elite 4 Battle, Champion Iris, Alder Battle, Undella Town. Think that's all for now.

I've only played White, I haven't played the sequels. Some of the music was OK but I was actually largely disappointed with a lot of the themes in this game (worst gen unfortunately). I wasn't keen on the trainer battle music or gym leader battle music; says it all when I prefer the wild Pokémon battle music which has never been the case in any generation. As for champion Alder's theme, hugely forgettable which is a first for me and such a shame. Thank goodness then for N's themes, particularly the final fight which made up for it somewhat, definitely my favourite.
It would be the Elite Four theme, it sounded SUPER COOL, and i listened to it alot since i lost so many times;; Iris Champion theme because its peppy and sounded cool too, and the World Tournament Final Battle Music, i battled so many times and i LOVED hearing it, i have many great memories with that theme!

The Super Kid

The Underdog :(
Ooohhh. Gen V music huh? IMPOSSIBLE for me to name just one...:

B/W opening sequence theme (where N is crowned as king), B/W Title theme, Accumula Town, Gym Leader's last Pokemon (which must come back to S/M imo), Route 2, Route 10, Route 11, Route 23, N's Final Battle, Ns farewell, N's encounter theme, N's b2/w2 encounter theme, N's room... N's B2/W2 battle, BW Credits, Cynthia's theme, Alder's encounter theme, Entralink, Kanto Gym Leader theme, Johto Gym Leader theme, Kanto Champion theme, Johto Champion theme, Hugh's theme, Three Musketeers/Forces of Nature theme, Dragonspiral Tower, Relic Castle, Ghetsis' Theme, Colress' theme, PWT final battle, Team Plasma's theme, Neo Team Plasma's theme,

But if I had a gun to my head, B2/W2's title theme. That is the epitome of a masterpiece - the powerful horns about 30 seconds in, then cutting to the calming instruments about halfway in reverting then back to the thunderous horns at the end, gives me a feeling I can't even describe. It's a very "triumphant" theme.

I have high hopes for Sun/Moon after hearing the themes so far, though. Looks like it is following in the steps of Gen V's music. Is the composer of Gen V music doing Gen VII's too? I can definitely hear similarities.

I'll just copypasta something I said once on the subject of favorite Pokémon music:

Route 10's a fitting song for the end of your journey through Unova, right at the cusp of the battles against the Elite Four at the Pokémon League at the end of Victory Road, as well as the battles against N and Ghetsis.

It has an interesting counterpart in Route 23 from BW2, as opposed to Route 10’s feeling of melancholy, it has a feeling of triumph to it, which makes sense as this is shortly after you’ve defeated Ghetsis and presumably Kyurem for the last time, and the only challenge left is the Unova League itself.

I have multiple favorites. My favorite town theme is Castelia City, while my favorite battle theme is the Unova Elite Four, and my favorite monument theme is N's Castle.

I thought of a few more pieces of music I really like:

Route 3: This is probably my favourite route them after Route 10. There's something really nice and happy about this theme - made all those times I was riding around on my bike trying to get eggs more tolerable lol.
Driftveil: I think it just sounds really cool and find it very catchy.
Opelucid (White): This is definitely my favourite of the Opelucid themes. I like the historical vibe the music has and find that it suits the city very well.

Other music I thought of: Striaton City, Lentimas Town, the Gym Leader & Champion themes at the PWT.
I seem to have more favourite themes from this generation than I first though. :p
