    I think the gen V gym battle theme is actually a bit too happy sounding and it almost sounds to me like something that belongs to a mario kart starting screen
    the perfect balance of intense and exciting for me would be sinnoh's gym battle theme but i do prefer a more somber sounding theme for battles which is why i think XY's battle theme us better than BW

    I don't hear "Mario Kart starting screen" at all in that. "Happy" I can almost see, but that's not the word I'd use to describe it. To me it sounds more like something you'd hear at the PWT.

    It does really fit the friend group in this game.

    IMO it fits Tierno, Trevor and Shauna but does not fit Calem/Serena. Calem/Serena are more serious as trainers thus they should get a more serious theme. Basically I feel they should have gotten their own rival theme.

    I agree. I initially thought that they would have their own separate theme (or at least an alternate arrangement), but nope.

    I felt it was serious enough. I mean, in the end it's still just a battle between friends. If they were more like Blue or Silver, then maybe I'd agree it's not a serious enough rival theme.

    I agree with Bolt, I felt the battle themes were lacking. Something about them feels too underwhelming for the intensity you'd expect from them. The overworld themes were better then their battle counterparts though.


    It's time to return to the old, soaring back to Hoenn!

    I actually think the theme still fits them all. The theme mixes so many different elements, it feels like the rival theme is a mix of all of their personalities (or what we know of their personality). It's friendly, while still having that touch of seriousness that it needs for the serious rival. A lot like Barry's theme, actually. Barry is still the best rival

    Then again, I actually liked every battle theme in this game, so there's that. I personally don't think that a battle theme always needs that same level of intensity and energy that we've had in the past to be good, and I actually like the change of pace. Not that I'd always want it to be that way, since I loved the new themes in B2/W2, but I appreciate these battle themes for what they are. I'd say they hold up decently well. That's just me, though.

    Snowbelle city's theme... dang I find this music so moving and touching even more after you fight and defeat Lsyande. All the conflict you had faced soothed a little bit.

    The Xerneas / Yveltal battle is my favorite track. There is just something about it that makes it special. The beginning in particular amps up your spirit.

    The gym leader battle music is probably the best for me. Game Freak has really few electronic songs (mostly the Unova Elite 4 was my favorite), but I love most of them.

    The champion and elite 4 theme was meh, and like what some of the people before me said, the rival themes were good for everone except Calem/Serena.

    The rival theme fits Callem/Serena, especially during the fight during the victory road.
    To right the countless wrongs of our day, we shine this light of true redemption, that this place may become as paradise. What a wonderful world such would be...

    Yeah, I just remembered the Elite 4 themes from BW and BW2 and forgot to edit that. I loved them too, though :P

    Also, I want to add that the Emma/Looker piano themes were great, but all the main series games have their tear-jerkers as well...

    I believe only Gen 5 & 6 had emotional piano themes. I don't recall Gen 1-4 to have something like that.

    I can't think of any other sad themes from Gen's 1-4 either.

    That's not really sad, more laid back. It's very smooth.

    Personally, I found it very melancholy. The HGSS version, yeah, more laid back, but IMO the original chiptune version just sounds...sad for some reason.

    That woman who plays the Jubilife theme when you talk to her.. I felt very sad when I listened to it for some reason, its supposed to have a happy melody..

    Also, I love the Anistar and Laverre city music. Anistar is kind of dark sounding though. Made worse by the fact that the man I lended my Pichu to die. Laverre reminds me of super mario and fairy tales, I love it.

    I love the friend battle music this time around as it kinda sounds like a culmination of a lot of previous rival battle themes. it's a nice touch, the most obvious previously used portion would be the BW rival intro part.

    I was talking about the original version, really not seeing it as sad, myself.

    Closest thing I can think of here is the R/S/E credits theme, which despite probably not having inherent emotional intentions, certainly feels like that way when listening to it.

    Same could also be said for the G/S/C ending theme. Best ending to any Pokemon game.
