I don't think it is THAT special, but I like it. I too like that it speeds up on low health.

It's actually not bad--with the exception of the terrible rival theme.
For me, nothing beats Generation II/III's music (highlights would be Eusine's theme, Violet City's theme, GSE Kanto Gym battles, and all of RSE--especially Brendan's theme).
I think this music will grow on me faster than the strange overworld sprites will, though, haha.
the ability to listen to sd card music during battles is all i want
It's strange how preferring the female gender now makes a man gay.Mew is jesus. -col_serra serebii
I hope the music sounds nice. Thats usually one of my top things about regions and towns.

I meant to choose "Pretty good" over "Love it" but I suppose it doesn't matter since my view on it was positive overall.
I like the starting town music and the battle music is alright. So for now I'm gonna be optimistic.
Sounding good so far.
The wild pokemon battle is probably the most important one, since it's the track we'll be hearing the most, bar trainer battles, throughout the game, and thankfully it's a good 'un. There's enough footage of wild battles to get the whole picture now, and I think it's a solid tune, though probably not a G/S wild beater. In any case, I really like the intro of the piece. Really gives off that 'holy shit, some wild animal just jumped out in front of me!' vibe. I also find myself humming the middle of the theme quite often.
General consensus seems to be that Musharna gets it's own battle theme, but given that the melody is identical to that of regular encounters and the background is sufficiently gloomy, I reckon it's a variation used specifically for night time battles. I hope that's the case, because it's bound to make the game just a little more atmospheric. It'd be nice if it carried over into trainer battles too.
The rival theme gets a few complaints from what I've seen, mainly because it's not 'rvialy enough' or whatever, but I rather enjoy it. It's quite catchy, and reminds me a lot of the type of tune you'd expect from the 'Paper Mario' rpg series, particulary the first. Granted, I don't really think it works all that well for Cheren, but it fits Belle to a tee.
That town in the demo (is it the player character's hometown? Not up to speed on this) reminds me of the fair music from Chrono Trigger. So yeah, that's awesome. There haven't really been too many 'city' themes in the games that have really stuck with me, with only a few exceptions, but this one I've already got a soft spot for. They can't all be hits, but I hope the rest of the locales share quality of the same calibur.
Jeeeez Gravy, they can't ALL be Goldenrod City or Lilycove City.

Aww, shucks V. If there's anything pokemon has taught me, it's that you can achieve anything if you just believe. And uhh, have friends and junk. I'm sure every track could be a Fortree if they just abide by those profound morals!
Buuut, don't get me wrong, I like pretty much all the city tunes. Just not as much as the battling stuff, I guess. Being the manly man that I am, the fightin' music has just left more of an impression on me.
The trainer and rival themes are both really cool! The wild Pokémon theme sounds awesome as well, but I've only heard part of it; does anyone know where I can find the whole thing?
Someone managed to piece together the entire trainer battle theme from the videos that have been shown so far.

Overrall the musics have been quite good. Not stunning, but okay.
And I can't really say anything good about that Rival Music either, seriously. I know this rival battle theme isn't supposed to be anything but happy and easy going, but I feel myself embarrassed, while listening that. The whole music glows that especially the female rival isn't surely the greatest trainer ever and I'll only feel myself awkward just for her.
The music is quite nice and I like how its been given details such as the speeding up of the music, when your Pokemon's health is critically low. So far its looking good.
