Pokémon Theme by Jason Paige

Now this is nostalgia.

Anyone else going down memory lane? I know I am. This was the first anime I’ve watched, obviously back then like most people who watched it at my age, I didn’t know it was anime. But as soon as I found out, which was quite a few years afterwards and I had already watched others in the likes of Yu-Gi-Oh, Digimon, Beyblade and Cardcaptors, but after I knew, my anime watching days started. Maybe you’re familiar with this story? If you are, then you’re not alone, I’m sure there are many of us.

This is probably the best Pokémon dub opening. It seems they’ve worsened recently, they weren’t too bad back in the early days, started to decline from AG and then got worse in DP and now the first dub op of BW is quite bad… Oh well, the anime’s still the same and I still watch the dub for nostalgia reasons, like why I still watch Digimon, Yu-Gi-Oh and Beyblade.

We don’t put lyrics in SOTW but I don’t think I need to put lyrics for this anyway. I’m pretty sure most of us know them by now, if not then you will know them soon, it is a pretty catchy song.

I just noticed that this is the first proper English song and first dub opening on SOTW. Hopefully not the last as I have others in mind.
