    Default Music Battle: Gym Music

    The basic melody hasn't changed in 14 years, but the renditions of it certainly have! Which generation's gym music do you like the best?

    Also in the list is the anime theme with the same opening melody, titled "Total War".

    And to refresh your memory, here are the tracks themselves:

    Gen.1: Red/Blue/Yellow
    Gen.2: Gold/Silver/Crystal
    Gen.3: Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald/Fire Red/Leaf Green
    Gen.4: Diamond/Pearl/Platinum
    Gen.4: Heart Gold/Soul Silver
    Gen.5: Black/White
    Pokémon Anime: Total War
    Pokémon Anime: Kanto Gym (Intense)

    *update* I found an actual Gym theme - it seems like a rare track, actually.

    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    I like Total War because it is orchestrated.

    But then again, why is it called Total War when it sounds like a theme that plays you had just pulled a total victory out of your ass?

    The HGSS Kanto one closely followed by the RSE one. I really hate the BW one though.

    None of them. My favourite is the Colosseum/XD:GoD Pre Gym music. <3


    Thanks to Demotei of the SPPf for the perfect sprite~

    Strangely enough, I prefer the Gold/Silver one myself. It sounds like a guitar rocking out at the first little bit.

    B/W. I like how the music starts especially.
    HG/SS comes to a close second.

    HG/SS. It just has that happy-go-lucky feeling that I love in these tracks, and yet it's also able to combine the feeling that you're about to fight a trainer stronger than most others you've faced thus far.

    I like the anime's Total War. I love listening to it at the beginning of each of the movies. The fact that it's orchestrated is the best part about it.

    Game wise, it'd be DPPt's theme. I don't know, I just like the sound of it and I feel nostalgic when I play it. Why I feel nostalgic about DPPt and not RSE or GSC is beyond me.

    I prefer the D/P/Pt gym music. I like how it sounds.

    Also, I think the first few seconds of the B/W one sound pretty cool. :O

    I actually can't decide between the GSC o the RBY. I love the nostalgic techno feeling which they carry. Although, I love the spin that BW but on the classic theme.

    That music isn't a remix of the original theme.
