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.

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.

"If Pikachu becomes a Raichu, I might be able to win that badge. On the other hand, to make it evolve just to fight...I would be just like Surge...Pikachu, what do you want to do? I really wanna beat that Surge, but I also don't want to force you to evolve if you'd be happier staying the way you are now." -- OS Ash, ESS
