    This thread is evil for making me choose just one. >:(

    But if I have to, I'll go with...the original tune. For the nostalgia and funny parodies. Remember singing it all the time way back in the day and annoying the crap out of my parents.

    Pokémon World, Pokémon Johto, Born to Be a Winner, I Wanna Be a Hero, Unbeatable, We Will Be Heroes, and Battle Cry - (Stand Up!) also rock.

    Battle Cry was actually good to me. I liked the melodies it had. But it's actually a tie with the first theme.

    Season 9 for me...

    It's assosiated with my favourite series of anime, the change from 4kids to TPCI, and as such was shorter than Unbeatable (which was okay, but HUGE and boring).

    The only real good TPCi theme. It all went downhill from there...

    Almost every opening is good. I'm tempted to go with the first one because of the feels but I went with "Pokemon World". It took everything I liked about the first one and remixed it into something much more catchy and vibrant. The worst theme in my opinion is "This Dream"

    I really enjoy Battle Cry - Stand Up, as it is a catchy tune from the DP series.

    Born to be a Winner is one of my favorites. I do like the first ten openings over all. (I am mad at TCPi for what they did to the opening of the 10th movie thought) I guess part of my problem is that they just don't feel like what the first ten openings had.

    Pokémon Johto is my favorite, but I liked all of them up until Sinnoh League Victors.

    Pokémon Johto and Pokémon Advanced Challenge/This Dream.

    These two are my favorites of the English Openings.

    If I had to choose between the two, Pokémon Johto receives my vote.

    I think a lot of them are good but they get better and better each and every Season so it is Hard.

    I vaguely remember talking about this in a similar thread made years ago, but if I had to pick one, then I'd go for This Dream. Might be kind of an unusual pick for a 4Kids song but I actually liked how it sounded a tad more somber and serious than the songs before (and after) it. At least it seemed that way to me; after the "PO-KE-MON!!" at the very start, it was a much more toned-down beat that gradually brought itself up over time. I guess arguably the original theme had a similar premise, but I've actually gotten sick of the original theme, oh deary me how could I. I haven't gotten sick of the rest from the 4Kids era, though. Unbeatable, Born to be a Winner, Pokemon Johto, and Pokemon World are among my favorites as well. Oddly enough the themes I've liked the least have been from the end of each respective series (excluding Black & White, how weird); IMO Believe in Me, Battle Frontier, and We Will Carry On all kinda suck compared to the themes preceding them in their respective series... they all either carry on some beat that sounds enough like a Pokemon song but doesn't stand out enough for me or sound just plain lazy. Or both. Maybe, possibly, Saikou Everyday! being so awesome made We Will Carry On suck more than it normally would have. I just know even now it's hard for me to listen to and accept that as the end of Diamond & Pearl's song. Hell, I've even gotten adjusted to Diamond & Pearl purely for the lulz. :P

    It's a pity the TCPi songs can't be as long as 4Kids (and I'm pretty convinced it's because of the network + advertising that's forced them to cut the OPs down so much); I actually enjoy We Will Be Heroes and Battle Cry - (Stand Up!)... and a couple of the Black & White songs beyond the first one, forget what their names are.

    If I had to pick a favorite from the TCPi era, it would probably be Battle Cry - (Stand Up!) or the current Black & White theme (I happen to like the cheesy "oh-oh!" chorus :P). But This Dream still trumps everything.

    The original one. As I've said in other threads, I'm a fan of the classics.

    You think The Nutcracker is something you did off the high dive.
    You've ever smuggled food out of an all-you-can-eat buffet.
    The original color of your carpet is an unsolved mystery.
    You've had more court dates than second dates.
    The closest you've come to royalty is eating at Burger King.
    You've ever stared at a carton of orange juice because it said "concentrate."
    You think a quarterhorse is that ride in front of K-Mart.
