(Vocalist: Jason Paige)

(Verse 1)
I want to 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.
Each Pokemon to understand
The power that's inside

(Gotta catch 'em all)

It's you and me
I know it's my destiny

Pokemon!

You're my best friend,
In a world we must defend.
Pokemon

(Gotta catch 'em all)

A heart so true.
Our courage will pull us through.
You teach me and I'll teach you.
Pokemon.

(Gotta catch 'em all)

Yeah

(Verse 2)
Every challenge along the way
With courage I will face.
I will battle everyday
To claim my rightful place.

Come with me the time is right.
There's no better team.
Arm and arm well win the fight.
It's always been our dream.

Pokemon!

(Gotta catch 'em all)

It's you and me
I know it's my destiny

Pokemon!

Oh, your 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)x5

Yeah!

Pokemon!

It's you and me
I know it's my destiny

Pokemon!

Oh, your 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.

    This song is about companionship in every way. If this song defines your childhood, you are part of a glorious brotherhood. They can screw up the series all they want, as long as we're still here, and as long as this song and the cherished memories surrounding it are kept in our hearts, pokemon lives. Don't forget that, my brothers and sisters. Don't forget that.

    But not just the bond between pokemon and their trainers, but in real life, kids and their friends, their pets, and families. It's how you don't abandon friends and they won't abandon you. "there's no better team" describes how no matter the challenge, you stick with your friends. It's not about the pokemon you catch but the bond you have with them. It's about how you learn to love and not desert your friends. It's about the amazing time you have the fun along your journey. It's about life, how you should try to be the best, determined, nice, and helpful while not going to far or hurting people, even if they deserve it. This means to me personally that I need to try to be the best I can and go for the chances in life to do great things, to have confidence, and to appreciate the little things.

    This song is about the bond between trainer and pokemon, there is no greater bond that exists to this day, as it says, ill teach you and you teach me, is talking about how not only that a pokemon learns from its trainer, but the trainer learns more about the pokemon as well. This helps the listener to get a good feeling about the bond that exists between pokemon and trainer. Another example of this bond is in "come with me, the time is right, there's no better team". It talks about the bond which allow the trainer to understand and plan out the best course of action. The "there's no better team" speaks not of the team of pokemon, but the team of the pokemon trainer and pokemon.

    You gotta catch'em all. That's the only thing that's important. You have to get all 649 pokemon, and become the champion.
