    XY(Z) hands down by a significant margin amongst the Japanese themes and overall. Literally nothing can come even close to surpassing the intense, energetic and catchy vibe XY(Z) gives in my book.

    Amongst the English openings, I'll have to say Stand Up! from DP, the lyrics of that opening and so meaningful and touching, inspirational and the melody at the same time is wonderful and energetic.

    Top 10 Japanese Openings:
    1) XY&Z
    2) Battle Frontier
    3) Spurt!
    4) Mad-Paced Getter
    5) Alola!
    6) The Greatest Everyday
    7) Be An Arrow!
    8) V Volt
    9) Ready Go!
    10) Future Connection

    Top 10 English Openings:
    1) Stand Up!
    2) Pokemon Theme
    3) Unbeatable
    4) I Wanna Be A Hero
    5) Battle Frontier
    6) We Will Be Heroes
    7) Believe In Me
    8) Pokemon Johto
    9) Rival Destinies
    10) We Will Carry On!

    You should check polls for threads like these before concluding it’s never been done (the search bar doesn’t search across Sppf; just the specific board you are on). Anyways mine would be Ready Go! as it perfectly encapsulates the splitting of the original gang. XYZ may be my favorite soundtrack in the show, but it isn’t my favorite opening. In general Jap opennings are far superior to English opennings.

    ^^^ Yeah I already made a thread on this with a poll. I liked 3rd gen the most with second gen openings as a runner up.

    Pretty much anything from the OS + Advanced Battle pre-TPCI.

    4Kids openings were fire.

    Basically anything during the 4Kids time. I don't know much about the Japanese versions except for Alola's themes, so I can't compare them.

    Of course, first English theme will always remain the very best, like no one ever was.

    I've found a new liking for "Ready Go!" from the Japanese Johto anime, which I think is amazing but I've never seen anyway talk about it.

    Give it a listen

    I've always loved Ready Go. My favorite opening from OS by far.
