Ok, people, before anything happens I'd say this song was a special request of one dear friend of mine here in Newgrounds, a great guy who always follow and support my music, and also leave incredible cool reviews that help me getting better on this. Yeah, I'm talking about you, dear Fyrem, and this is specially done for you. I hope you hardly enjoy it.

And well, a little description of this job... As some of you may remember, I submitted some months ago the Pokemon Stadium 2 version of the Champion Lance, which is this actual theme in a slower and acoustic arrangement... And now I bring the whole electro version, of course, making a more epic arrangement by adding electro instruments, synth basses and drums for speed, but leaving the orchestral arrangement just as same as the past one... Please, have a sit and enjoy yourselves with this great piece.
Thank you!

pretty great!

I't awesome thanks for do it!!!

...Oh gosh. Oh gosh oh gosh oh gosh you made it, YES!
Okay okay, lemme finish the review real quick.

First off: I LOOOOOOOOVE how you added the 0:26 to 0:32 added sounds you had in Lance's Revenge and kept them here, 'cause you basically kept all the drama from Lance's revenge and made them faster paced here, which sounds just as good. The overall piece is pretty darn good, as this time it's more of a synthetic orchestra than an electronic-based one, which is juuuuuust fine. The calm section starting 2:00 is also something I'm really happy you added. It's like a throwback to Lance's Revenge (which relates to your personal memories of Pokemon Stadium 2, AKA that section represents "your own spin") before getting right back to Silver's faster-paced, so much more stressful battle. And as usual, you end it all with the theme's intro and a final note.
But seriously, yeah, this is like what you did with Gary: the point is to remian faithful to the original material and keepin' it as a remaster. Well, plus the added calm section.

Now, for the comment. I'm... I'm really glad my reviews actually help, since I usually don't have the musical knowledge to back them up, and I really do hope that it inspires you to get better. You definitely have since I listened to your good old remix of Cynthia's Champion theme, so the evolution IS there - anyone who's been following your music can certainly see it.
Thanks for making this, man. Keep bein' awesome.


As always, I love the energy you put into your mixes. There is this moment during the song where things get really fucking epic. It´s almost nostalgic. Great job on the audio mixing and hats off to you for the whole damn thing.
Now, there is one thing that is bothering me and that is the beats you choose. You seem to be using very similar beats in all of your mixes and the same drum fills all the time. I would suggest exploring more on that and trying new things.
Saludos mi amigo.
