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 Pokèmon to understand,
The power that's in side.

Pokèmon!
Gotta catch 'em all.
It's you and me.
I know it's my destiny.

Pokèmon!
Oh, you're my best friend,
In a world we must defend.

Pokèmon!
Gotta catch 'em all.
A heart so true,
Our courage will pull us through.
You teach me,
And i'll teach you.

Pokèmon!
Gotta catch 'em all.
Gotta catch 'em all.

Yeah-eh-eh.

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're in the fight.
It's always been our dream.

Pokèmon!
Gotta catch 'em all.
It's you and me.
I know it's my destiny.

Pokèmon!
Oh, you're my best friend,
In a world we must defend.

Pokèmon!
Gotta catch 'em all.
A heart so true,
Our courage will pull us through.
You teach me,
And i'll teach you.

Pokèmon!
Gotta catch 'em all.
Gotta catch 'em all.

Gotta catch 'em all.
Gotta catch 'em all.
Gotta catch 'em all.
Yeah-eh.

    General CommentThis song is definitely about Pokemon. I'm sure we all know that.

    But getting deeper into it, this song is a Pledge of Allegiance to Pokemon! :D

    General CommentThere's no better Pokemon theme than the first. They all have their own unique quirks, which are fun, but this one will always be the best. My childhood.

    General Commenti can't believe that the poster messed up the lyrics

    it's TEACH pokémon to understand

    wtf is these pokemon to understand, that doesn't even make sense

    also it's pokémon not pokemon, pokémon without the accent becomes poke-mon
