As the title says, what is your favourite themes in the games. I made a list of my top 3.

Number 1:
Reshiram and Zekrom battle theme (the first 18 seconds only


Number 2:
Elite four Drake battle theme

Number 3:
I don't know the name of this one but it's from hoen region and it start's as soon as you enter route 118 and lasts for only a part of route 118. If you want to hear it just step in rout 118 and wait for it to come on.

I made a list of my Top 25 and posted it on Youtube, though it only counts the main games. After X and Y come out, I'll probably make another one for all Pokemon games, including things like Snap, Colosseum, Conquest, and Mystery Dungeon. But anyway, for those of you who aren't patient enough to watch a 30-something minute long video (or series of them rather), here's a summary of it:

#25: Pokemon Tower theme (FR/LG) - Still creepy yet interesting, even as a remake.
#24: S.S. Aqua (G/S/C) - Definitely suits a Fast Ship with its upbeat melody.
#23: Underwater music (R/S/E) - This is why I love exploring underwater.
#22: Petalburg City (R/S/E) - I like how pleasant yet almost victorious this theme sounds.
#21: Frontier Brain battle (HG/SS) - Very catchy and upbeat, for some reason.
#20: Team Rocket Hideout (HG/SS) - It's such an improvement over the original.
#19: Plasma Grunt battle (B/W) - I actually like this version better than the B2/W2 because the beat goes better with the melody.
#18: Route 1 (R/B/Y) - I really like the melody; it's perfect for starting off one's journey.
#17: Lance's battle theme (HG/SS) - This version is MUCH more epic than the original, especially at the beginning.
#16: Cianwood City (HG/SS) - I like how they made this theme different than Ecruteak's, and how this sounds so relaxing...
#15: Marine Science Museum (R/S/E) - OMG, it's a remix of the S.S. Anne music. And a wonderful one at that.
#14: Icirrus City (B/W) - I like how it almost has an Irish feel to it.
#13: Suicune battle theme (HG/SS) - Again, I like how they made each legendary dog theme unique. Suicune's sounds so bubbly and upbeat...
#12: Pallet Town (R/B/Y) - So nostalgic and beautiful, it brings me to tears.
#11: Lake Trio battle (D/P/Pt) - I love how the bass underscores the melody here. Pretty awesome for a trio of little psychics.
#10: Weather Trio battle (R/S/E) - The church bell at the end adds a really nice touch. It makes catching Kyogre or Groudon that much more fun.
#9: Burned Tower (HG/SS) - WHOA, talk about improvement over the original. This version is much sadder too...
#8: Final rival battle (R/B/Y) - This brings back a lot of memories, and it has a nice tune too.
#7: Gym leader battle (R/B/Y) - If a theme has been remixed so many times but the original sounds the best to me, then that says a lot for it.
#6: Driftveil City (B/W) - Wow, this city theme is awesome. It makes me smile whenever I enter the city.
#5: Game Corner (D/P/Pt) - I love how it resembles the kind of music played in Pachinko parlors.
#4: Credits theme (B/W) - In the video this is N's Castle instead, but now I realise that I like this a lot more.
#3: Bell Tower (HG/SS) - This theme really gets me excited about meeting Ho-oh.
#2: Cynthia's intro and battle theme (D/P/Pt) - The remix in B/W is too fast for me to like it... And I would've killed the creators if they changed her awesome piano intro.
#1: Alder's theme (B/W) - It's very relaxing and has a beautiful melody. I always stop and listen to it when Alder appears in the game.

It's a tie between Route 47/48 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCPgZ0NYurc and Aspertia City. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HsoH-WNTtw&noredirect=1 Both tracks are so beautiful and I find myself going to those areas just to listen to the music.

Second Place mentions go to Goldenrod Cityhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1-VyHIx_SY as well as the 4th gen versions, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuT6PpFdZ48 (I find myself listening to the 4th gen version during the day and the GB version at night. Originally I didn't like the 4th gen version but it grew on me.) and Castelia City http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ssYQHiTpNI

3rd Place mentions go toN's Theme Black/White Version, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGCaD2eFt-g Blue's Theme Black/white Remix, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diTFv1VEFFs (THEY CLEARLY SHOULD'VE USED THIS FOR BLACK2/WHITE2'S PWT BUT NO) and Kyogre, Groudon, and Rayquaza's theme R/S/E version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4MrH2h2NUU (This is an awesome legendary theme)

Oh the memories....

Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness, the purification chamber music. This music was just... the best. It always brings happy memories and a smile to my face once when I hear it.

Pokemon R/S/E Champion battle music. I remember back when I was around eight or so, I would just purposely go through the elite four just to hear this music.

Pokemon LG/FR Game Corner music. Who could forget this music? It was just so... uplifting. I'll always get this song stuck in my head.

Pokemon R/B/Y Prof. Oak's Lab music. When I played my older siblings' games, I relived what they've experienced. Going to Prof. Oak's place was just a place where I could save the game and the next time I would get back to playing, I would begin with a nice tune.

(and just a small spinoff game music)

Pokemon TCG Club Leader music. This, by far, has to be one of the best music tracks in gaming history. Atleast, in my opinion, this music was amazing. There's just nothing wrong about it, it was just purely fantastic.

And of course, there's more tracks out there that I love, but these are just the ones I can think of right now. There's some in R/S/E that I'd listen to everyday, but I can't remember which route has which music track.

You guys posted some very great music. I actually went through them all :D
But my top 3 still stand :D

I am trying to find my number 3 on youtube but cannot. All route 118 themes I checked on youtube do not have it!!! How can they not include it??!! It starts right at the beginning of route 118.


Everything stays.
There's too much I could think of.
But since Pokémon Diamond was the first Pokémon I ever played on, the music of Route 201, just in front of Twinleaf will always remain one of my favorites.
I also loved the music of a Team Plasma's grunt battle in Pokémon Black and White 2. I always liked the one in Black and White, but this one is just even better.
Finally, I like Lance's theme music in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. It's a mix of a lot of different flavors, which I like a lot.
I also have a small favorite for the music of the rival battle in Pokémon Black and White. It's so nice.

I love these songs, as well as most of B2/W2's soundtrack. Easily my favorite game soundtrack. As for other individual tracks...

Barry's Theme - Favorite rival for sure. Of course I'd love the theme song.
Hoenn Frontier Brain - I love this song. That chill when you first hear Blue's Champion theme didn't happen to me. That chill happened when I fought these guys, and they actually have the strength to back it up.
Cipher Peon Battle (Colosseum) and Cipher Peon Theme (Gale of Darkness)- Amazing themes for the most competent villains in Pokemon.

There are tons of others, but those are some notable ones I've got.


wandering trainer
there are so many to choose from...

SS lugia theme
BW2 zekrom/reshiram theme
ever grande city
hoenn frontier brain
... that's all i can think of now, but there are many more.
