    Wow... This at first seemed like a tough one cause there's soooooo many great OSTs in Pokemon and I'll admit, a lot of them for me are really close and hard to call but...

    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.

    That OST is... Oh my Arceus... BEAST! I've even hacked it onto Delfino Plaza on my Brawl.

    English Dub

    Honestly, as long as it's not English Opening 10 (DP Rap), English Opening 17 (XY Remix of Opening 1 that pretty much butchered it completely and was disgraceful), "Go Pokemon Go," "I'm On a Quest Now," Chronicles that 4Kids' did (only OP I didn't like from them), "Hoenn Pokerap (that TPCi did)," or "Can't Stop Catchin' Em All," it's at least decent in my book. These are pretty much the only OPs/EDs/misc. music I can't tolerate, period.

    That said, I'm not a fan of any of TPCi dub's OPs and EDs at all, with most coming off as either extremely cheesy friendship songs to me, rapping because they can do so, or just plain rehashed verbatim regurgitated crap like OP17 is, excluding 12/Galactic Battles-- the only good one they have ever done, IMHO. I favor 4Kids' OPs and EDs by far, and did not dislike any of them outside of Chronicles, tbh-- all of their dub work musically ranged from pretty good to excellent otherwise: I preferred that power ballad feeling in their songs, tbh.

    My favorite OPs would have to be English Opening 3 (Johto Journeys), 5 (Master Quest), 7 (Advanced Challenge), and ending being "Kanto PokeRap," though. You can tell I was a fan of David Rolfe and Johto Group, huh? lol.

    I like Jason Paige's Pokemon Theme and David Rolfe's remix of it, but neither are my favorites-- still, both put the current English OP to shame in my book.

    Original JPN Version

    The OS BGM, AG BGM, and BW BGM by Shinji Miyazaki and company are generally favored.

    The DP BGM and XY BGM (considering most of it is BW M15 BGM) flat-out suck, IMHO. The dub's replacement score in these arcs is no prize, either, but it's not much worse, tbh.

    Favorites are "Life's Purpose," "Unconditional Love," "Kanto Elite Four Battle Theme," "Advanced Adventure," and "Satoshi's BW Theme."

    OPs: "Mezase Pokemon Master," "Ready Go!," AG 01, "Pokemon Symphonic Melody," "High Touch!," and BWS1 Theme.

    I really love the Stand Up theme. I'm not sure what its official name is, but it sounds so good to me. Inspirational and catchy.

    Even though it's a dub song, I actually really loved This Side of Paradise from Destiny Deoxys, it's just a really catchy song. I had it stuck in my head for like days, definitely probably the best song from the dub yet.

    I love all the dub openings but at the moment I'd have to say that Rival Destinies is currently my favourite. Well all the ones from the Black and White series are pretty good and very catchy. For movies, I'm not sure if they were actually featured in the movie or not but they were on the soundtrack or I found them via TVTropes but I adore If Only Tears Could Bring You Back from the first movie and We'll Make A Promise from uh, the one with Manaphy I think. That reminds to go watch that movie. From some of the CDs, the one I was the most surprised to like was Two Perfect Girls because I didn't expect it to be what it was. And Everything Changes. I could go on for ages about all the songs I like, which is pretty much all of them.
    All hail the jiggling Ditto!

    Galactic Battles (German Version), Adventures in Unova (German, English), Black & White (German), Rival Destinies (German), Be An Arrow, Best Wishes! Opening, Summerly Slope, Aim To Be a Pokemon Master (Original), Master Quest (English, German), This Dream (English), the opening used for XY Preview Episodes outside of Japan (I would have liked that as permanent over V-Volt or the remixed 1st theme in English) - if you don't know what I'm talking about, it's the remix of the "you got the gym badge" theme in the games.


    Fanfare of the Heart, Seven-colored Arch, Let's Join Hands, Takeshi's Paradise, One Hundred Fifty-One, various instrumentals of the dubbed songs, but especially Galactic Battles and Master Quest.


    Team Rocket Attacks (BW)
    Episode Title Cards - both (BW)
    Vs. Diaz (Trip/Shooti) theme - both versions (BW)
    Team Rocket Unova Motto (BW)
    The fanfare that played sometimes in Ash vs Gary's battle in the Johto League when the referee announced winner/loser (OS)
    Team Rocket's Secret Strategy (OS)
    Ash/Satoshi's Theme (BW)
    Wild Pokemon Battle (BW, Johto, AG)
    Various unnamed tracks used in the beginning of Johto episodes (OS)
