Pokemon – Pokemon Theme lyrics

[Verse 1]
I wanna be the very best
Like no one ever was
To catch them is my real test
To train them is my cause

I will travel across the land
Searching far and wide
Teach pokemon to understand
The power that's inside

Pokemon! Gotta
catch 'em all! It's you and me
I know it's my destiny,
Pokemon! Oh you're my best friend
In a world we must defend
Pokemon! A heart so true
Our courage will pull us through,

You teach me and I'll teach you,
Pokemon! Gotta catch'em all


Every challenge along the way
With courage I will face.
I will battle every day
To claim my rightful place.
Come with me,
The time is right,
There's no better team.
Arm in arm we'll win the fight!
It's always been our dream!

    This song is about doing your best to succeed in your dreams. The only way to be the very best is to train, learn, and believe. You'll meet friends along the way and learn from them too. You'll grow as a person and your Pokemon will grow to become strong and powerful.

    What does it mean? Let an expert tell you. A 10 year old Japanese child goes on a life-changing experience in a world full of mutant animals, caused by the radiation of the Atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Mutant taming had become popular, and he wanted to become just like the Tamers he had seen on TV. However, he is often pursed by 2 adults and their mutant cat who try to steal his mutant rat constantly. Yet he doesn't ever seem to realize he can call the police and continue on his quest to capture every species of mutant in existance peacefully.

    It's true meaning is to always work hard n order to achieve your dreams (or goals). Not to mention the several hardships you might/must face as well. No matter what along the way you'll find many friends and you'll be by their side as they do the same for you. The anime on the other hand happens to be about a 10 year old by whom goes on a journey with fascinating creatures known as Poke'mon. Along the way he makes new friends (both human and/or Poke'mon) along with rivals too. All in order to be the best Poke'mon trainer, the Poke'mon Master.

    Like I said before. He's just a young boy. A young boy with the taste of chili in his mouth. All he wants, is to be the best, the very best chili taster in the world. And boy is he up to the challenge, he has chili in his blood. You'd be damn wrong if you thought Chili Ketchum was about to give up on his chili dreams. He's about to catch all the chilis.
