    Even though Indigo League came out 8 years before I was even born, I still get goose bumps watching this. This theme is immortal. It has, I guess you could say "travelled far and wide" through several generations and I hope it continues to do so. This song means more to pokemon fans and gaming fans in general than many people will ever understand. Thank you to Jason Paige, John Siegler and John Loeffler for creating one of the finest pieces of music full stop. Thank you all so much :)

    The nostalgia hits hard with this song. I was born in 1990! I was 9 when I started collecting the cards. I’m now 32 and still collecting Pokémon cards and my daughter is 10 and I buy her and surprise her with packs weekly. We’ve bonded more over Pokémon cards then anything else.

    the fact that after 25 years, no matter how many times he has been asked to say/sing any part of that song, no matter the number of guest appearances, covers etc etc etc, every time he performs with such passion as this, this is what makes him the voice of a generation, legend status truly earnt

    As good as the TV show was & as much as I loved playing the game, this damn theme song was what Pokemon was about. I don't remember specific moments of the series, or countless fun hours I spent playing the game boy games, first & foremost I remember the theme tune. I'll never forget the fun I had thanks to Pokemon. Jason Page, you are a legend

  • Ghost Rider
    Ghost Rider 6 months ago +3

    Inspiringly awesome and so incredible!! Jason has put a lot of heart, soul, and determination into the song! Sure Pokemon does have its share of flaws due to most episodes being banned, having controversy, some shocking and bad things happening in the anime and manga, and redesign changes had to be made, especially for Jynx, but I still adore the Pokemon series as a whole regardless. Let the good outweigh the bad or have a perfect balance in between them.
    I did sing along with the crowd and Jason Paige himself when I listened to this and I almost cried to be honest.

    The Pokemon Introduction Theme song is one of my favorite things to play on the Piano. I learned to play it by ear. What is funny is when other Adults hear the music without the lyrics, they like the melody. Then, they are shocked and even embarrassed when they learn it's Pokemon.
