Its very tight between Orange Island and XY theme. I think XY theme is bit higher.

Oh, I almost forgot 'Catch Me If You Can', an adorable little pop theme that sadly only had very brief use in the first Pikachu short.

My most recent fave piece of BGM from the anime is "Type: Wild." I love the energy of Ash's seiyuu while she sings that song. <3

been a while since this thread was active, but i'm really digging the beat of "alola!" it's actually becoming one of my favorite openings (although i pretty much say that for every opening lol).

Pikachu's Vacation, right? I liked that song, but I preferred the Opening song from that short instead.

The one definitive favorite OST from the anime for me is As Long As I Can Hold My Breath from Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea.

Oh and of course Burning Battlefield from the early series. For some reason I always thought the Kanto Trainer theme was kinda dreary, though the anime remix sounded way more intense and exciting (shame they missed out one the most dramatic riffs though). It helped it was nearly always used for the more tense battles (it was pretty much Ash and Team Rocket's "Oh, it is ON!" theme, eg. Do I Hear A Ralts).

I could only really remember the OPs and EDs for the most part. :P My favorite OPs come from the Battle Frontier arc, particularly "Battle Frontier" and "Spurt!" "Aim to be a Pokemon Master" is a classic, but I prefer the movie 4 version of it (not the Whiteberry remix), as it felt more fast-paced and action-packed.
For the OSTs, on the other hand, my favorite is definitely the instrumental version of "OK!" It's probably the best battle theme in the anime IMO, made far more epic by the fact that it played when Ash won against his greatest rival yet, Gary, in the Johto League. The Hoenn battle theme is okay. It's my second favorite and has nostalgic value. It's based on the AG's first OP, "Advance Adventure", which is an incredibly catchy OP by itself.
Now if only they make a battle theme based on Spurt...

Well, Lugia's Song I guess is probably one of my favourites, but XY&Z, V-volt, Kirakira and some others I can't find anywhere and don't know the names of are pretty good too. I also like Be An Arrow.

I like to compare the openings by arc/region they traveled in, since I generally consider anything post-Johto (except Battle Cry) to be inferior to the theme songs before it. My list would then be as follows:
1. Pokémon Theme (Season 1)
2. Pokémon World (Season 2)
3. Born to be a Winner (Season 4)
4. Believe in Me (Season 5)
5. Pokémon Johto (Season 3)
1. Battle Frontier (Season 9)
2. Unbeatable (Season 8)
3. I Wanna Be a Hero (Season 6)
4. This Dream (Season 7)
Diamond and Pearl Series:
1. Battle Cry - Stand Up (Season 12)
2. We Will Be Heroes (Season 11)
3. Diamond and Pearl (Season 10)
4. We Will Carry On (Season 13) (although it's a toss-up between season 10 and 13)
Black and White Series:
1. Rival Destinies (Season 15)
2. Black and White (Season 14)
3. It's Always You and Me (Season 16)
X and Y Series:
1. Be a Hero (Season 18)
2. Pokémon Theme (Version XY) (Season 17)
3. Stand Tall (Season 19)

The US score for Revelation Lugia is fantastic, and an improvement over the original IMO. Though I prefer "Toi et Moi" to any of the songs 4Kids slapped on the credits.
"Spurt!" is my favorite Japanese opening. "Pokemon World" from the OI is my favorite American opening, though I like "Johto" and "Black and White" a lot too.
Also a big fan of Brock's "Two Perfect Girls" number from Totally Pokemon, "It Will All Be Mine" from Pokemon Live! (the only good thing about that show IMO), and "Under the Mistletoe" is a not-so guilty pleasure.
