I really like what I heard from the trailer, especially the bit when it suddenly becomes tribal.

I'm thinking the theme was done by Go Ichinose because of the complex arrangements of melody and the sudden variations of the instruments. Also the style is reminiscent of BW themes.

I just really hope Ichinose is the primary musician for this game, because that means awesome battle themes.

The near ending is so...beautiful. It really does seem choir-ish, and it gives a haunting yet triumphant tune.

Yeah, the theme was pretty great. Might be my favorite rendition of it yet. I love that it's based on the Hoenn one too, because that one was my favorite.

Well I liked the tribal sounds in the trailer's bgm, tho if the Sun and Moon soundtrack is arranged by the same people who produced the X and Y one, I probably won't enjoy the bgm in these games much. ^^;

I think we won't be hearing from Shota Kageyama for a while.
The sound team this time could be Junichi Masuda, Go Ichinose, Hideaki Kuroda, Hitomi Sato, and Minako Adachi

With the exception of the Gym Leader and Elite Four music, I absolutely loved the X and Y soundtrack, especially all the special battle themes like Xerneas/Yvetlal, Diantha, and Mewtwo. I do admit though that the Gym Leader and Elite Four themes left a lot to be desired.

I liked what I've heard so far!
My hopes are those of everyone, meaning that if it's Ichinose-san taking care of the music, I'll be the happiest pokè-fan out there! :D

I like what we've heard so far.
I just hope it stays impressive, unlike X/Y's which disappointed me after coming out.

I'm getting serious Pokemon BW vibes from 1:36 to 1:51 of the trailer, and I love it. We better have some at least BW quality music from this game.

Ah, I'm glad that someone thought to point out the music.

Okay, as for Sun and Moon, I feel like the dominant instrument of the OST will likely to be drums. Kind of like how the trumpet was for Hoenn and the electric guitar was for Kalos. I would personally love the heavy drum influence if they did decide to go that route.

I'm actually eager to hear ukulele in some of the themes.

I didn't notice the tribal drums kick in until the fourth time I watched the trailer. Love it. It could be a great musical motif for intense themes.

It would be so cool to have a gym leader theme with fast beat drums in the background. Now Im really hyped to hear all the music.

We have arrived.
I agree, the drums were a really nice touch :D
Hopefully they incorporate them into much more of the music in the game.

And I hope any deep moments have accompanying music similar to "Got to Get It to Get It!" from XY and B/W.
