Favorite music track from each generation?

    Music is honestly the second best part of the franchise (take a guess on what’s the first) and each game brings along a bunch of nostalgic tunes. What’s your favorite song from each game and why? You can include spin offs if you want

    This is a great idea for a thread! :)

    Gen I Team Rocket's Hideout - really like the sound of it, brings in a sense of danger

    Gen II I have two faves here, couldn't narrow it down to one since it's such a good soundtrack...

    Trainer Challenge Theme 1 - love the feel of this one, action/adventure... and Rocket Tower Takeover, it feels a lot like the anime here, and it makes me grin from ear to ear

    Gen III Wild Pokémon Battle ! - like this one in terms of bringing some excitement into the battles

    Gen IV Television Channel - just like the pleasantness of this theme

    Gen V Unwavering Emotions - first song in the series to almost bring tears to my eyes, so emotional and well composed

    Gen VI Pokemon X & Y Wild Pokemon Battle Theme - one of my favorite battle themes, just really well done

    Gen VII Battle! Wild Pokemon! - thought this one was pretty good

    Side games (putting them here) - from Pokémon Colosseum (love the entire OST to be honest) - Normal Battle - love this theme, it's fun to listen to; from Pokémon Trading Card Game - Club Leader Duel - love the intenseness of this theme; from Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Dungeon - Tiny Woods - just really like this theme, nice and light

    Haven’t heard any music from Gen 8 yet, but maybe I might get some new favourites when Sword/Shield actually come out.

    Also, has anyone noticed that the music for the route just outside Sunnyshore sounds a lot like Green Day’s 21 Guns?

    Did the Abandoned Ship theme appear in OR/AS? I seem to remember it was, but it might have been for a different place.

    Wasn't it used in Sea Mauville? A slightly slower version was also used in Southern Island in ORAS.

    Yeah, Sea Mauville was OR/AS's replacement for the Abandoned Ship.

    Gen 1: Champion theme and Lavender Town
    Gen 2: Azalea Town and Blackthorn City theme
    Gen 3: Frontier Brain theme
    Gen 4: I remember Cynthia's theme giving me an adrenaline rush as a kid when I first heard it. Great track!
    Gen 5: Castelia City theme
    Gen 6: Hands down Zinnia's theme! In X&Y, the Elite Four theme was pretty badass if it didn't take you half a minute to beat them lol!
    Gen 7: Ultra Necrozma theme and Route 2 theme; the latter gave me this weird nostalgia when I first heard it for some reason.

    Spin-offs: Every! Single! Theme! In! Pokémon! XD! As a whole, Pokémon XD has the best music I've ever heard from a Pokémon game.

    I think the reason we didn't hear a lot of Gen 6 music was because the battles were really easy and you could beat them in five minutes or less. Hopefully Gen 8 will be a bit more challenging so we can hear more of that awesome battle music. :D

    Is that the bridge immediately south of Lavender Town? I didn’t play the Kanto games much.
