Theme Songs Pokémon World →

Pokémon Theme is the opening theme song for Pokémon: Indigo League, and the first opening theme song of the English Pokémon anime series, as well as the first track in Pokémon: 2.B.A. Master. It is used through episodes IL001 to OI003. It is also used in the opening of MS001: Pokémon The First Movie - Mewtwo Strikes Back, and of MS020: Pokémon The Movie - I Choose You! Owing to its extensive use, it is the most iconic theme music of the English Dub of the franchise.

Lyrics

TV version

🎵
I wanna be the very best
Like no one ever was
To catch them is my real test
To train them is my cause
I will travel across the land
Searching far and wide
Teach Pokémon to understand
The power that's inside
Pokémon (Gotta catch 'em all), it's you and me
I know it's my destiny
you're my best friend
In a world we must defend
Pokémon (Gotta catch 'em all), a heart so true
Our courage will pull us through
You teach me, and I'll teach you
Pokémon
Gotta catch 'em all!
Gotta catch 'em all!
Po-ké-mon!

🎵
I want to be the very best
Like no one ever was,
To catch them is my real test
To train them is my cause,
I will travel across the land
Searching far and wide,
Teach Pokémon to understand
The power that's inside! (Power inside!)
Pokémon!
Gotta catch 'em all
It's you and me,
I know it's my destiny!
Pokémon!
Oh you're my best friend
In a world we must defend!
Pokémon!
A heart so true
Our courage will pull us through!
You teach me and I'll teach you
Pokémon!
(Gotta catch 'em) Gotta catch 'em Gotta catch 'em all!
Every challenge along the way
With courage I will face
I will battle everyday
To claim my rightful place!
Come with me; the time is right!
There's no better team
Arm in arm, we'll win the fight!
It's always been our dream!
Pokémon! Gotta catch 'em all
It's you and me.
I know it's my destiny!
Pokémon!
Oh you're my best friend
In a world we must defend!
Pokémon! Gotta catch 'em all!
A heart so true
Our courage will pull us through,
You teach me and I'll teach you
Pokémon!
(Gotta catch 'em) Gotta catch 'em (Pokémon!)
Pokémon!
It's you and me.
I know it's my destiny!
Pokémon!
Oh you're my best friend
In a world we must defend!
Pokémon!
A heart so true
Our courage will pull us through
You teach me and I'll teach you
Pokémon!

(Gotta catch 'em) Gotta catch 'em Gotta catch 'em all!
Pokémon!
