    The first few hours of playing this game, maybe the first 10 or 12, I thought "This game has the WORST music ever in Pokemon". Now loads of hours later, I can say it has the most heartwarming and atmospheric music in Pokemon!

    The only music I really like is when you step into the buildings that lead to towns/new routs. I like more relaxed, cutsey music.

    My favorite credit music so far, for sure.
    I generally like all themes in this game besides maybe route 7. Although I might just be sick of it after all that breeding I did. xD

    The champion theme is pretty cool. Overall I think this gen had worse music than Gen V. Not that this was bad, but so far I haven't heard any "Oh my Arceus that was the coolest music ever!" from this game.

    I, too, wasn't particularly impressed with any of the tracks. I enjoy the Team Flare Boss battle music and the Power Plant theme, while the Gym Leader battle music is growing on me. The rival theme isn't bad, either.

    Luminose City theme is by far my favorite.

    As good as this song was, I preferred the normal gym battle theme. I actually found the gym theme to be more intense, at least in the intro. But the Elite 4/Battle Chatelaine theme is still my absolute favorite song in the game, and one of my favorite themes in the entire series, up there with the Hoenn Frontier Brain Theme, Hugh's Theme and Colress's Theme.

    I like how activating the roller skates doesn't turn to that annoying default music. in previous games, I would get on the bike at the gate then enter a route so that I could hear the normal music of the route/city

    At certain areas, switching to bike doesn't affect the music. But I agree that this gen has the best bike theme ever. In fact, all overworld themes, although no longer as catchy as before, are amazingly great.

    The battles are a bit disappointing because of less buildup and tension, but it already grew on me. Correct me if I'm wrong but I haven't seen Go Ichinose's name at the credits... so I guess that's why the battle themes sound different. He is usually the one who composes the battle themes.

    Hmm, I often find myself playing without the music on, or not noticing the music all together because I'm so engrossed in the game!

    I always hated the bike theme.


    I think my favourite theme by far is Sycamore's theme. It honestly makes me wish he appeared more. I also really enjoyed some of the overworld music, particularly the one that plays in... route 16, I think? The gym leader was kind of disappointing though, I don't think it was as intense as some of the older themes. I also missed the final Pokemon music that would play in BW.

    I agree that the bike theme is better than previous gens, but I still prefer not to hear it all the time, and I like the music that was intended to go with the area to play

    I've always liked the bike themes (especially in RSE). The problem is I get sick of it and rather hear diverse music.

    I can't unsee the image of cherry blossoms and general kawai-ness after hearing that people thought it sounded like music from a magic girl anime. It's a good bike theme, but I still prefer R/S/E's.

    Masuda still does all the battle music, actually. Ichinose did most of everything else, I don't think there's a specific type of music he focused on. I didn't watch the credits too closely though, I find it hard to believe he did nothing. He was one the first musicians to join Masuda back in Second Gen.

    November 13th is release day, Japan is also getting the typical physical release if you want to import.

    Well, yes. Masuda still does battle themes. Also, apparently he is not the Sound Director in this game... Also, I've checked and I can confirm that Go Ichinose did not compose any music in this game at all. Nor he is mentioned at the Staff Credits at all.

    Anyway, speaking of end credits, the second song that plays and the part that has the poem, it's obviously the lyrics to the songs. I tried to sing the French lyrics (in my head) alongside the main melody and it actually fits perfectly. I was kinda expecting that the credits will have vocals, but probably the OST will have that.

    That's very strange, now I want to know what happened to him.

    I love the Snowbelle City theme. It has that sad feeling, but at the same time it's really beautiful and it gives you the feeling that your adventure is coming to a close. Also, if you go in a house in Snowbelle City, somebody will play a city theme from Sinnoh (I think it's Veilstone City) that gives me a winter/Christmas feel.

    Pretty nice, I always wondered how a vocal version would sound.

    I liked the music that plays on that very short path between the first town in the game and where you meet your friends for the first time. Too bad it's used only once and in that very short part.

    Default It's a very good Soundtrack!

    My two favourites off the top of my head are:

    Cyllage City - It's just... man, I want to say swag, even though it's not swag, but it's just super chill and awesome

    Team Flare Battle! - Not quite as imposing as Team Plasma's but a bit more energetic which is nice
