I'd forgotten how incredible the music from the anime is, the end song I'm seeing referred to as "A Meeting and Parting" if anyone was wondering.

It really is. I have the albums covering all the OST music up until Diamond/Pearl. I didn't know what the track names were though.

There's some great music from the earlier seasons, some of which was probably cut from the 4Kids dub, or was just less notiable. There's a lot of great versions of songs from the games.

When it comes to the anime OST, "Tears After Cloudy Weather" has to come up.  Still get feels from that one.


Another favorite of mine:  "Who Is Stronger?"  You know that phrase made famous by The Dark Knight, "Some people just want to watch the world burn?"  This is that in musical form.


As for adaptations on game themes, I'll skip to Route 26-28 from Gold & Silver.  The Bike is also great.  There's so many great adaptations on this show! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTlT8Z693ek
