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
Each Pokmon to understand
The power that's inside

Pokemon!
Gotta catch 'em all
(It's you and me)
I know its my destiny
Pokemon
Oh, 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'll teach me and
I'll teach you
Pokemon
Gotta catch 'em all
Gotta catch 'em all
Yeah

Every challenge along the way
With courage I enface
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

Pokemon!
Gotta catch 'em all
(It's you and me)
I know its my destiny
Pokemon
Oh, 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'll teach me and I'll teach you
Pokemon
Gotta catch 'em all
Gotta catch 'em all
Pokemon!

(solo then chorus repeats)

    General Commentthe funny thing is in the Japanese version of the show, Ash didn't want to "catch 'em all", he just wanted to catch the pokemon he wanted; the whole "You gotta catch 'em all!" thing is a US/4Kids-made marketing ploy :P

    Anyways, it is a catchy song, but the JP theme is so much better, musically.
