    Default Gym Themes

    So, as far as world release goes, we've had at least four incarnations of the classic 'overworld in Gym' music. But which one was the best? The classic retro of Gen I? The about-average Gen III? Or what about the HG/SS version? Why is whichever one better than the rest?

    (and from what I've heard, Gen V uses the D/P/Pt version- please correct me if I am wrong)

    Yeah, I write weirdly dark stuff sometimes. Birdsong, I Can't See The Light and The Courteous Soldier, if you're interested.

    My pick is easy to understand. Gen I and II. Pure and classic 8 bit sounds.

    I go for the Gen III. To me RSE's musics felt somewhat mature and accomplished.

    I love all the Gen 3 music. It's amazing how Go Ichinose and Jun'ichi Masuda got such a glorious soundtrack from the GBA's humble sound system.

    I loved the 8-bit sounds of Gen I & II but when I heard the HG/SS Gym theme I was very surprised at how good it was. I was meant to vote for the both of them but I voted for Gen I.

    The Johto and Kanto Gyms have the same music, and neither Lance nor Red own a Gym. It might not seem clear to someone else, but if I had meant battle themes, I would have said so.

    The HG/SS music is my favorite. B/W is also good.

    D/P/Pt is my favorite up there, but if there was a B/W, then I would have voted for the latter.

    Yeah, I haven't played B/W what with it not coming out outside of Japan yet...but I did see a video on YouTube and the music sounded similar/identical to that of D/P/Pt. Was it different enough to warrant its own option after all?
