When you battle gym leaders and Alder it sounds terrible
Colress's theme (not the battle theme because that is awesome, the theme he gets when he shows up)
It's just a little too up beat for me, I mean, the guy is clearly psychotic and fine with it, I think he could have a slightly more sinister theme then what he got.

The Rivals in BW1 and Alders them ~_~ The Rivals was too childish and not really getting me excited to battle them so >: and Alders.. it just seemed like I was battling someone else instead of Champion.. like after him The Champion came next, but we all know he is >.> OMG D:
Fire and Lightning Race Across the Heavens
Cheren's and Bianca's battle theme in B/W. Specifically more towards Cheren, they should have went for another cooler sounding theme for him.
Another is Iris' theme, while it does suit the character, I found it unfitting for a Champion theme.
Bianca and Cheren's theme fit totally the characters, unlike the previous rival themes.
Haters gonna hate.
Regarding Unova music, I think the Gym Leader battle theme is pretty bad compared to Sinnoh, Kanto and Johto one... Specially Sinnoh's theme, which I consider the best in the series.
The music in Pokemon is usually pretty good, I guess when the music doesn't change to fit the tone during tense events could be one.
Also I was upset that Colress, when you battle him the first few times, got just a regular battle theme and not his battle theme.

Forgot to mention before, but a lot of the music in FRLG didn't seem to fit - some of those remixes (the Trainer battle theme comes to mind) went way overboard. The only piece I really liked from those games that I can remember was the S.S. Anne's theme, because I'm a sucker for anything in the key of Db Major. XD
Oh, and Sinnoh's Trainer battle theme annoyed the heck out of me. It starts off fine, but towards the end of the tune... really, six bars of the same five notes, followed by another six bars of those five notes, only an octave higher? Come on, you'd think they could have come up with something that wasn't so repetitive.

Speaking of FRLG, the victory road music was the generic mountain music, not the intimidating music we've come to expect.nother ones that just seem off to me include: Undella Town (except Summer), the Hoenn biking theme, and I think the route 209 theme near Pastoria City.
Now one that doesn't seem to fit in my opinion is Shoal Cave in Hoenn. It has a nearly ominous tone, which fits in other places like Mt. Pyre, but in a cave that's known for simply changing tides and catching Spheal, the theme doesn't seem to fit.
I've almost allways believed that all of themes fit in someway shape or form...So its hard and maybe impossible for me to really think of one that didn't fit. lol
About sinnoh... Ever notice that besides route 209 and rowan's lab theme...most route theme's were Jazz like (even the game corner)? I originally didn't care for most of sinnoh's route themes... then i acutually sat down for more then two seconds after the gen switch and found out I really missed the peaceful yet happy feeling most of them tended to give me. D:
I like ALL of the gym battle themes (they are all fun to listen to, and they're NOT not catchy)...but I beleive sinnoh's was the worst, followed by Unova. (Unova only wins cause of that DAMN final pokemon music. Thats still awesome.), then kanto's, then hoenn's, then johto's is my first favorite. but that's all remixed up when it comes to the remixs. HGSS's johto gym battle theme was my fav, and still kinda is, but the orginal in 8 bit never appealed to me...lol I'd put the 8 bit original version of the johto gym theme WAAAAAAAAY in the back. lol
Alder's is the only champion theme that was sort of meh to me. lol I just... didn't like it. I mean, its not bad to listen to...but Gary's felt like he thought he was the best of the best, Lance's/Red was also pretty epic in it's own right, Hoenn had that AMAZING drum line which I can never enjoy unless I'm wearing headphones, All of cynthia's versions are really cool. the first two being mystic...and the world tournament one having that guitar replacing some strings or something...GOD I love that guitar...<3...
Even Iris's has a good feel to it...and I liked the change to be honest...Alder's theme just kinda died on me. Which is funny considering he's one of my favorite characters D:...(I will totally end up being like him when i'm older. XD)

Such a sexy song. Urgh.
Pokemon XD/Colossuem have a few instances of this, imo. For the most part music fits (The Under, Agate, Miror B's, etc), but then you have the likes of the Shadow Lab in both games, which is a location where pokemon is made into shadow Pokemon (implied to be via torture). The music? Upbeat as all heck with its piano solo! A good song imo, just... not right for the location.
And then XD wild Pokemon battles has something more fitting of an old wild west film scene or something than a wild Pokemon battle theme. =/ Again not a bad tune, but it feels weird.

I don't like Burgh's Gym's theme either. I listened to it many times hoping that it would finally click with me, but it seems so out of place since I've always thought of Burgh as this really artsy kind of guy who's all over the place because his brain is brimming with ideas, yet his Gym's theme in B2/W2 was just boring to be quite honest. It doesn't suit Burgh.
