Pokémon Sword and Shield Music Appreciation Thread

Since I hadn't seen a thread for it, I decided I'll make it and get it rolling.

Let's all be real: that main theme arrangement in the trailer was dope. It has me very excited for what the soundtrack will sound like this time around. I'm hoping for some dope synth dance tracks. Maybe one for the gym theme!

Also, what the bloody hello kitty will it take for them to get Yoko Shimomura to write a few tracks for the game?

Feel free to discuss the music to your heart's content!

Watching the trailer again, I am very curious if the cheering is part of the main theme or only included for specific parts of the presentation like introducing the protagonists, starters, and game names. While it did add to the excitement of us finally seeing the new generation, I don’t know if I’d like to hear that constantly going on while viewing the title screen in the actual game.

I think the music is nice, with the synths.
I hope one of the locations uses bagpipes in the music (maybe one of the places in the Scotland based part).
Feeling that we’re going to get some Celtic-style tracks.
Most of the instruments used in Pokémon are softsynths like HALion, Plugsound, and Omnisphere.

I was kind of hoping for either a rock-based soundtrack or orchestral given how dark I want the game to be

I'd like an orchestral soundtrack. Other Nintendo series have done so.

Isn’t Orchestra a waste of money? I always felt that way about Orchestral schores and like synths better, they fit the music better too.

The music that plays during the trailer is still stuck in my head

The very first music we heard is the best, love how it starts with a remix of Hall of Fame theme.

Also love how the very first notes we heard from S/S is a remix of a theme we usually hear the last in the story lol

It makes me think becoming Champion is more tied to the story than ever before.

Hearing the Hall of Fame tune did strike me a bit.

I like the music so far.

Can the trailer song be the song for the anime? It's about two minutes long but I think it can be narrowed down to a minute if the singing starts right away and the chorus is cut in some parts.

I hope there are fiddles, flutes, lyres, hornpipes, and bagpipes.

I think I heard hornpipes when James Turner was talking in the direct.

I heard bagpipes in the gym theme and Legendary theme.
The gym theme also has a staccato violin ensemble sound.

They did a bad job back in the day with not including the (LINK: Sun/Moon Legendaries Trailer Soundtrack) into the game. But, I'd love to hear the 'Brand New World' when you are crowned as the Champion, your Pokémon stand by you and crowd cheering, and you're escorted with your new trophy till you leave London and you start running through the Wild Area with wild Pokémon in the background as credits fall.

I actually really dislike this song, so I pray it's not in the game. lol

However, there is a theme that plays during a Max Raid Battle scene that I love. I hope someone can rip it.

Official GYM Leader music theme. It must've been released after Demo, considering we haven't heard the theme due to crowd. One word: Epic.
Mods, @Wulava @WishIhadaManafi5 , is there an option for you to edit the main post as more official tracks released?
