This was my 3rd attempt at a Pokemon Theme Song Cover. I had started off doing an epic, true-to-original cover but the original is amazing already - so why re-make something that is already fantastic?

Instead, I took to the other extreme - from epic, to laid back and relaxed. Something to keep in the background at your next cheese and wine party and see if anyone catches on :p

I also wrote a third verse - I hope the lyrics fit!

It ended up being more of a rendition than a cover as it's so different! (So keep an open mind when listening) ;)

The Togepi pic (and animated Togepi for the youtube video of this song) is by Sam Green. Thanks Sam! :D

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
Each Pokémon to understand
The power that's inside

Pokémon (gotto catch em all)
Its 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 all

Every challenge along the way
With courage I will face
I will battle every day
To claim my rightful place

Come with me, the time is right
There is no better team
Arm in arm we'll win the fight
It's always been our dream


I will rise onto the top
With honour and skill
I will be strong, I will survive
This quest is now my thrill

I will believe until the end
No matter what I fear
With Pokémon by our side
Our victory is clear!

This is very nice and calm. It's calm enough to relax to the point of sleeping. I love it. I'm wondering if you had done or thinking of doing a Hawaiian rendition of the song due to Generation Seven of the nearly 25-Year-old Franchise.

Josej75 is either trolling or not into good music. Either way his opinion is irrelevant. Very talent and an excellent cover. Please promote yourself! Imagine Pokemon wanted to use this in an ad. GAIN MORE EXPOSURE!

2/5 Too calm. Can you give me a link to the other versions?

Wow, this is great, the instrumental is build up solidly and your voice is just great! I also liked the new melody you gave it, simply great!

Such a jazzy and calming cover. I could see this being used in a Noir film piece as Ash, Professor Oak, or Looker tries to solve mysteries, beautiful!
