To conclude the countdown let’s go out on a high note with a couple of tunes from “Pokémon The Movie 2000”, a movie that seemed to be the last animated film with an overarching musical theme from start to finish, and nowhere was this emphasized with the scene where the character Melody plays the full song, and of course the end title theme performed by none other than the late great Donna Summer.

To continue the next gen of Pokémon from Red/Blue/Yellow to Gold/Silver, here’s a tune that players will hear when they get to Mt. Silver and only when they confront a very familiar face hanging out there by himself.

And so for the third song on the countdown we have the intro for the Pokémon game that offered players a slightly different experience in exploring Kanto, but this time with Pikachu as your starter!  And not only that, but you get to follow the anime more closely!

For today’s selection on the countdown, let’s go with the final confrontation with your rival Blue, or as fans know him best, “Gary Oak” courtesy of the anime.  And if you had managed to get to this point in the game, you knew you were in for one heck of a battle!

In anticipation of the release of Pokémon Sun and Moon, I decided to put together a countdown-style playlist of some of the best tunes direct from the video games themselves!

Now this isn’t all of the themes, but it’s definitely the most popular ones, and I hope they will definitely whet your appetites for the two games to come!

To start, I feel it’s only best that the countdown begin with the intro theme from the two games that started it all!

 

Video Game Boom Box: Pokémon Sun/Moon Countdown Edition – Pokémon Johto Songs

To add yet another teaser to our countdown, I decided to do a little throwback to the early seasons of the Pokémon Anime (specifically Johto) with some songs from that era.  If fans remember the end segment of each episode called Pokémon-karaokemon – then they’ll recognize some of these tunes.
