Is it now possible to post favourite music of U-SM? Since they certainly has more musics to love.
It's such a good theme it was remixed for Super Smash Bros 4.1 theme in Pokemon has been my favorite since the moment I first heard it. Personally, Sinnoh's my favorite region, and I loved everything Gen 4, but this theme actually comes from Unova. It was present in BW but removed in BW2 due to the location being excluded from the games:
Route 10's Theme. Everything about the theme suits the location and the point in the game at which you reach the location. It's a travel up to victory road, and portrays a 'journey to the top' feeling. I would often come to this route just to sit and listen to the theme. It has a beautiful melody as well as perfect use of various instruments, and it almost sounds like something out of TLOZ.
This reminds me of another favorite & memorable theme from Gen V: Village Bridge.
I swear to god when I get a spouse I WILL dance with them to this song. Absolutely beautiful, holy shit.
Why bring this up now? Because they recently released:Holy Miltanks! I was expecting them to have the fitting themes we all know for each trainer, but I wasn't expecting them to give them all full remixes!
Trainer Battle (Kanto Trainer): Remix of the classic Kanto theme. Honestly didn't change that much, though changed up the instruments now and again to keep it fresh.
But after that is where we start seeing the remixes, though "remix" should be taken loosely as while it obviously has the parts we recognize they either add in, expand, or completely change other segments making it its own track separate from the original source pretty much (there's also a possibility of them throwing in some other themes):
Kanto Gym Leader/Elite Four: After the build-up the pace is picked up until it gets to a point where it sounds more dramatic breaking up the speedy pace which is then goes back to.
Boss Trainer (Kanto Champion): The song heard in the trailers, it wasn't until now do I realize it's a remix of Blue's theme! This time they have a heavier focus on stringed instruments and horns.
Johto Gym Leader/Elite Four: I think here it's the instrument choice which stands out as it's not normal sounds you here, it sort of gives it an Arabian feel I wanna say... and then suddenly it switches back to the Johto Gym Leader/Elite Four before repeating.
Hoenn Gym Leader: YOU WANT FRENCH HORNS? WE GOT YOUR FRENCH HORNS! While the drums and piano is certainly still there in the background, they really put more emphasis on the horns (and violins) giving it a more classical sounding tune.
Hoenn Elite Four: While the original was already dramatic, this one takes it to the eleventh degree! Not all the way through, of course, adding some lighter beats at the end to bring down the tension before repeating.
Sinnoh Gym Leader: They really went out of their way to make this one different, also sounds like something I'd hear in a Shantae game.
Sinnoh Elite Four: "Wait, aren't Sinnoh's Gym Leader & Elite Four the same"? Yes and no, the original tracks were the same music but played slightly differently. In fact I would say the Elite Four version here more sounds like the original track then the Gym Leader's.
Sinnoh Frontier Brain: Already this one starts differently as it's tune is vaguely similar until it goes into the more recognizable part. It's also a lot more heavily synthesized. Also, I think they maybe added in the tune you get when you win a Symbol.
Vs Barry: I just can not smirk with these theme. So much more jaunty! Especially with the horns at the beginning. Sounds like it's being played by a marching band at points.
Unova Gym Leader: Unova seems to try combine it's synthesized parts with classical sounding instruments in the background. Not only that but they throw in both the Low HP music and the "Gym Leader's Last Pokemon" theme!
Unova Elite Four: Original Unova Elite Four was a bit of a dark and moody theme, and though this version starts keeping it that way it soon changes things up to make it more jazzy.
Kalos Gym Leader: A wave of synthesized noise with heavier drum beats and a guitar. I wonder if any inspiration came from Korrina's "Successor" version of the theme.
Alola Island Kahuna: At first it sounded like I was listening to a track from a Metal Gear game... and then the lighthearted part of the theme starts to play. Just as jarring as in the original, lol. Its this duality of the intense beginning/end and the the more upbeat middle section I think they played with more than they did in the original.
Alola Elite Four: They not only keep the rather sinister sounding of the theme but amp it up, almost making is an atmospheric piece like one you'd hear while exploring a dark underground cave.
Vs Hau: Much like Hau's version of the Alola Champion Theme in USUM, it takes a while before the most recognizable parts of Hau's theme comes in. Meanwhile just enjoy the lively but laid back tropical beat.
Pokemon Center: A much more livelier version of the theme many trainers has grown up with. In fact this sounds more like an early route theme, a tune to make you want to get you adventuring.
Poke Mart: Took me a while to re-recognize the Mart theme, the sped up pace really disguises it. Theme pretty much screams "hurry up, get your stuff, and get back out there"!
BTW, the new music is also great:
Vs. Protagonist Theme (Brendan & Rosa)
Vs. Team Break
EDIT: Forgot Hoenn Frontier Brain.
Hm, out of the admins who use a remix of the grunt theme I prefer Plumeria's as it gives it a completely different feel (making it match her Poison-type preference), however this remix is good with its faster pace plus those sirens; gives a feeling the admin is a step above the grunt and you're actually in for a challenge (helps the first admin you face is Mars who uses a Purugly (at a level it shouldn't have evolved at) which packs quite the punch at that point in the game).
best admin theme
