Pokémon Johto Rival Battle

Hi again! This is a remake I did of the Johto-side Rival Battle track. I am currently working on the Red & Champion Battle track. That one takes a little more time, though.

I wished to upload no more than one track before my Moderator's Approval, so I am partially uploading this to check if my projects yet have to be approved or if they kind of banned me. (I respect their decision, although this is no midi rip, everything was made by ear. ^^)

Thanks for listening (if this does get approved, that is)!

This is one of those songs that can put a professional video game music writer to shame.



you definitely have me goin here, 1st and 2nd gen pokemon were the best by far.

Radidsh responds:

I love the second generation. There is nothing more of a nostalgia bomb for me. Walking around outdoors at night, seeing the lights in the windows, hearing the fantastic music.

I am glad you liked it, thanks for the comment!


A must for any GSC fan!

Radidsh responds:


Thamks, that's really sweet. I am honored that you liked it! =3

(I do not know what to do next, so if you or someone else who reads this have a Pokémon track you would like to hear in my style here to do a project of, feel free to suggest! ^__^)

Thanks again!

oh yeah!!!

This is good stuff!!! keep up the good work!!!!

Radidsh responds:

Haha, aww. Thanks a ton. =3

I have uploaded a few other Pokémon-related projects as well here if you are interested!

I am glad you like it!

Brings me back....

Good work Dude :D. Nice job with the song. I dont care what people say, this song is the best rival song in the whole pokemon series. Actually Heartgold and soulsilver IS THE BEST EVEAR. I played the originals and its lmost the same. Johto kicks bass. So i would say good job in picking the correct song to make. It takes me back...

Radidsh responds:

Thankies! Hehe, I am glad you liked it! It's half of my motivation, if not more.

I love Pokémon and its tunes, and bringing me back? That's where the second half of my motivation comes in, and I believe why I started doing this as well. X3 I try to preserve as much nostalgia as possible in my projects up to this point.
