"Gotta catch 'em all," shouts teen-popper (and 1999's Buckner & Garcia) Billy Crawford on this kid-phenom soundtrack. Engineered to capture not only preteen fans of the Japanese anime craze, but Top 40 listeners who might fall for singles such as girl group M2M's peppy "Don't Say You Love Me," it's loaded with familiar zillion-selling names such as Britney Spears, 'N Sync, Christina Aguilera, and 98 Degrees. A mixture of light dance-pop, innocuous romantic ballads, and "Eye of the Tiger" drama keeps things moving. G-rated through and through, the disc's nonstop chirpiness might eventually wear on parents' ears even as they acknowledge the catchy hooks. The younger set will love it without qualification. --Rickey Wright ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars I rated each song; average is 3.0625.
But I'll just round that down to 3. This CD is mediocre. Not one of the best I own, and definitely not one of the worst. Pokemon Theme is a good song that everyone's heard, and Billy Crawford did it nicely. I gave that one 4 out of 5 stars. Don't Say You Love Me is a fantastic song! 5 out of 5! It Was You is also pretty good. Ashley Ballard isn't a bad singer. 4/5. We're a Miracle is an OK song, though I don't see how it or a lot of the others fit Pokemon. And Christina Aguilera is, in my opinion, not a good artist at all. The way she sings is horrible. She changes tone WAY too often. She'll go from a deep voice to a high-pitch one in seconds, which is really annoying. This song gets 2 out of 5 stars. Soda Pop also gets 2/5. I hate Britney Spears for a lot of reasons I won't even go into, but for one of her songs, this isn't so bad, and in fact it's catchy. Somewhere Someday is the same case. 2 outta 5. I hate NSync, and it's not a great song, but it's not too terrible either. Get Happy=5/5. I love this song! It's so...happy! Free Up your Mind is 3/5. Emma sings all right by herself, and the song is so-so. Fly with Me is just plain awful. 98 degrees isn't so hot, and this song sounds like every other pop one today. Bad. Lullaby, same deal, 1/5 stars for both of those. Vacation=5/5. Really, really good! Dance song! Makin my My is OK; 3/5. Catch me if you can is better; 4/5. Have some fun with the funk gets 1 out of 5 stars. It is so miserably bad and wretched I can't even describe it. Aaron Carter makes me SO sick, why did they have to include him?! If only tears could bring you back=2/5. Kinda sweet, but not much else. Brother my Brother got 3/5. It's a nice song, and I like the name of the artist...Blessid Union of Souls. That influenced me a little. Well, that's what I think of this CD. I don't care if it was helpful or not.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it!
I bought this cd years ago, and I've listened to it almost every day since. I'm the biggest Pokemon fan there is (I've been for over five years, and I still am at 16) and since I loved the first movie, I decided to by the soundtrack, and I wasn't the least bit dissapointed. The best song on this cd is It Was You; it's my favorite song ever. I also love Fly With Me, Somewhere Someday, and the catchy Catch Me if You Can. We're a Miracle is a beautiful song, and Free Up Your Mind and Fun With the Funk are fun and great to dance to. Don't Say You Love me is a great song too, and one of the reasons I bought this. If Only Tears Will Bring You Back will bring a tear to your eye, and Brother my Brother is a good song, too. The only songs I don't really like on this cd are Lullaby and Vacation, they get annoying, and I can't stand Soda Pop, but the rest of the songs are great. There's a cool version of the Pokemon Theame (from the movie) on it, too. Overall this cd is the best. Great music to listen to with your favorite Mew ^_^

5-0 out of 5 stars It was great!!
It was a really good CD overall!

1. Pokemon Theme: I liked it a lot, but not as much as the original piece on the 2BA Master CD. It waqs a cool way to start out the CD though.
2.Don't Say You Love Me: This was one of the best tracks on the CD. M2M was the right band to have sing this piece. Though I don't know how it fits into the movie, it was a good track anyway.
3.It Was You: Another of my favorites, it's a great track also. Ashely Ballad can sing, and So Plush compliments her singing.

4.We're a Miracle: It was pretty good singing, but the lyrics weren't all that great. I didn't enjoy this track as much as the earlier tracks.
5. Soda Pop: I avoid this one everytime. I don't know how it fits into the tracks, or why this track is on here. It wasn't one of the better ones.
6.Somewhere, Someday: Pokemon seems to like using the big all-time bands on this CD. I'm sort of neutral on this one. It was great, it wasn't bad, it was okay.
7. Get Happy: This one is another of my all-time favorites. It's great for those "Sugar, SUGAR RUSH I NEED TO DANCE!!!" moods. It's fun to sing along to also ^^
8.Hey You Free Up Your Mind: Another of those avoidable songs. As I said before, they like using those big time bands, and often those songs are the avoidable ones. I didn't like the song at all, because of the rather dark mood it sets you in right after your sugar rush mood.
9.Fly With Me: Another big band one. This one's not as avoidable as the others, but I still don't like listening to it as much as some of the ones by smaller bands.
10.Lullaby: I love this one! I like the beat and the sound effects are great! Mandah was the perfect choice to sing this one.
11.Vacation: Another great song!! The beat is as good as "Lullaby" and "Get Happy". Vitamin C was great for this song. The sound choices are good, and it's fun to sing along to.
12.Making My Way: It's not my favorite, but it's pretty darn good. The singings great, and the background singers are good.
13.Catch me if you can: It's a great beat and a good song. Especially if you get around to learning the background singers lines. It might be a little fun to dance to, just don't knock over lamps in the process.
14.Have Some Fun With the Funk: Considering that Aaron Carter is another big-time singer, it's good. I don't understand where it fits into the movie, though, although some of the better ones don't fit into the movie at all...
15. If my Tears Could Bring you Back: It's for one of those "I made a mistake and now you're gone..." moods. It's originally kind of hard to tell if the person who they want to return is dead or not, but I really listened for a long time, and it turns out that the singer is singing about someone still alive. It's a great song if you're feeling a little too depressed for "Get Happy" or "Vacation".
16.Brother My Brother: This one was a great way to end the soundtrack. It's a song kind of about peace almost. The singers are really good, and the setting in the song matches the one in the actual movie.

So overall, this CD is definately worth buying if you're willing to shell out a buck or two for great songs. I highly recommend this CD for any Pokemon fans out there ^^

3-0 out of 5 stars Why did they even bother?
As a seasoned Pokémon fan, both of the US and Japanese content, I am usually willing to defend any CD or movie with a Pokémon theme. I did it with Pokémon The Movie 2000, despite a lacklustre collection of overrated pop music aimed at 8 year olds. There is however, no defending this so-called 'soundtrack'. It is simply another version of the 'Totally Pokémon' CD that we saw in January, which was without question a superb collection of perhaps only slightly too 'poppy' songs. The success of this CD does not however justify the re-launch of a clone product, with only three extra tracks. It makes me wonder why the producers even bothered to bring out Totally Pokémon, when they knew that the soundtrack was going to be the same thing...

Overall, if you bought the Totally Pokémon CD, then this CD is only for the most die-hard Pokémon collector to add to your hoard. Otherwise, I would suggest saving your money for a copy of the Japanese Third movie score, which was a wonderful compilation of music, rivalling everything on the US Third Movie soundtrack CD. I only hope that the fourth Pokémon movie's soundtrack is something more inspiring than a rework of the Johto series score.

5-0 out of 5 stars Say what you will but...
This is a pretty good album. I got it when I was only 13 and now years later I can still enjoy it. Sure, it's a re-release of Totally Pokémon, but at the time I couldn't find it and I found that the tracks were on this soundtrack. Basically this is Totally Pokémon V. 1.2, and if you don't already have Totally Pokémon this is definitley worth it.

This CD features all the Pokémon Karaokemon tracks in their full version, the intro to Pokémon Johto Journeys, a remix that was in the movies (and is even better than the original), and some other tracks like the catchy Pokémon GS, and other songs such as He Drives Me Crazy, Biggest Part of my Life and others, as well as Karaoke versions of three of the Karaokemon tracks and To Know the Unknown, the ending sequence of the third movie. If you don't mind Pokémon-themed music, this is definitley a good CD and I'd recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good CD.
This was a pretty good CD. I believe that it did very well and I absolutely do not concur with the concurrence that KOCH records is very bad at making compilations. This was a great cd. Instant favorites on this CD was 6 and 11, all the others that came in eventually, was 1,3,and 7. Very good CD. I really enjoyed it, and you (and/or your kids...) should too!

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, but...
The booklet is nice. It includes the lyrics and has a poster of the pokemon.
The songs are nice{I didn't like a lot of them though}.
My favorites are:
#1
#2
#4
#6
#7
#11
The other songs are okay but not that good.
I don't think it would be worth it to get rid of this cd, even though I'm not a big Pokemon fan{ I don't just collect Pokemon, as you already know}. But if you are a big- 100%- absolute- fan -in a -got to get everything way- than you might want to get this. If not I don't think you'd want to regret it.

While the inclusion of novelty songster Weird Al Yankovic (here with "Polkamon") and new-waver all-stars the B-52's (here with the playful "The Chosen One") sharpens the proceedings with their individual visions, most of the performers here have been coached by producer David Foster or other music industry veterans. Most successful is former disco diva Donna Summer, who emerges with the dramatic tune "The Power of One," which sneakily includes the Pokémon theme featured throughout the film. Twelve-year-old Alysha may be a burgeoning teen star with her surprisingly mature interpretation of "Dreams." The emphasis is on the current teen-pop trend. Dream Street, Christian boy band Plus One, and O-Town (the band documented in ABC's TV series Making the Band) all serve up the prescribed recipe for success: swooning harmonies, Hallmark-card lyrics, and near-operatic melodies designed for radio. You expected a movie starring Pokémon to miss a trend?C'mon. --Rob O'Connor ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This CD Rocks!!!!!!!!!
I love this cd! It has a great selection of songs on it and it's really cool. Now it's time for my rating of the songs. I may be copying off of some people but hey, it's a living.

1. The Power of One ~ Donna Summer (5/5)

I thought this song was great. It really delivered the theme of the movie.

2. Dreams ~ Alysha (5/5)

This song was also really cool. It starts off slow but then has a fast beat to it. So this was a good song.

3. They Don't Understand ~ Dream Street (3/5)

Pretty good beat, but I just didn't really get into this song.

4. Wonderland ~ Angela Via (5/5)

I loved this song! I don't see why some people hated it. It had good lyrics and was just as good as her song on the first pokemon movie cd. (Her song on that cd is Catch Me if You Can)

5. With All Your Heart ~ Plus ONE (4/5)

This song is slow, but it is still very good.

6. The Extra Mile ~ Laura Pausini (5/5)

This song was really, really good! It may be slow, but it has great lyrics and a nice slow beat.

7. Flying Without Wings ~ Westlife (4/5)

Kind of good, not all that great, but it does have good lyrics.

8. Pokemon World ~ Nobody's Angel and Youngstown (5/5)

One of the best songs on the cd! It's much better than the original Pokemon World song. It has a great beat and of course cool lyrics.

9. Blah Blah Blah ~ Devotion 2 Music (3/5)

This song was kind of dumb. I think they could have done better on it.

10. Polkamon ~ Weird Al Yankovic (5/5)

This song is so funny! I love it! It's one of my favorites.

11. The Chosen One ~ The B-52's (5/5)

Another one of my favorite songs. It has an awesome beat and it's really cool

12. One Heart ~ O-Town (4/5)

This song is pretty good. It has good lyrics and a good beat.

13. One ~ Denissa Lara (4/5)

This was a good song too. It was slow, but it has good lyrics and a good beat.

14. Comin to the Rescue ~ O-Town (5/5)

This song has an awesome beat and the tune is really catchy.

15. Dance of the Bellossom ~ From Pikachu's Rescue Adventure Score(2/5)

This song was stupid and it's probably my least favorite songs.

16. The Legend Comes to Life ~ From the Power of One Score (5/5)

This is one of the best songs on the cd! It's great! The score for the whole movie is awesome! I hope they make a seperate cd with the origanal motion picture score on it.

Overall, this is one of my favorite cd's. And go see the movie too! Try to find the songs on the soundtrack that are in the movie. I did!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great album!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Although this album doesn't have much "famous" groups/singers, it still a great CD! The songs on the album I liked most would have to be:

1. Donna Summer "The Power Of One" which has a great sound and matches the feel of Lugia and his legend!

2. Alysha "Dreams" which sounds very much like the other female teen singers but very catchy!

8. Youngstown featuring Nobody's Angel "Pokémon World" is a great re-make of the theme song for the Orange Islands episode of Pokémon. Has a techno/dance feel to it! Very cool!

10. "Weird Al" Yankovic "Polkamon" is a very funny song. It would be a great song for kids or if you just want a laugh!

15. Pikachu's Rescue Adventure (Score) "Dance of the Bellossom" is a very cute score. My friend and I think it's great!

16. The Power of One (Score) "The Legend Comes To Life" is very much like the Donna Summer song, very peaceful and matches the feel to Lugia's legend!

These are the songs that appealed to me the most, but the others were still great songs! This one is much better than the first one!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Soundtrack
Es Un CD Infantil Que Vale La Pena Tener Es Un Material muy Bueno Jajajaja La Pelicula Es La Mejor Que Han sacado de pokemon, y el SOUNDTRACK tambien.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great CD
This was a very good CD. I bought it because I slept through half of the movie, but not the CD (psyc:P...I watched it...). It was a great CD. Good collection of artists, but the CD was awesome. I really enjoyed it and really liked it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pokemon 2000 review
This CD has many great Pokemon songs for all Pokemon lovers. My favorites were:

#1 The Power Of One
#6 One
#7 Flying Without Wings
#9 Blah, Blah, Blah
#10 Polkamon

I would recommend this CD to anyone with a passion for Pokemon.

I will be purchasing more Pokemon CD's from Amazon soon, and will give recommendations for those too. ... Read more

Pokémon fever continues to burn hot, as evidenced by this catching symptom: a high-octane pop soundtrack for the animated television series. Dream teen group Johto borrow from the elements that make Backstreet Boys, Britney, Christina, and 'N Sync sensationally popular, repackaging their sound Pokémon-style for young audiences. A cross between Up with People, Hanson, and a latter-day Mickey Mouse Club, Totally Pokémon opens with "Pokémon Johto" the syrupy pop jingle that opens the television show each Saturday morning. The record's first single, "Pikachu (I Choose You)," is an infectiously buoyant Latin-tinged dance number, and "He Drives Me Crazy" is a youthfully crushed-out ballad in celebration of series protagonist Ash Ketchum. Included here too are seven bonus karaoke tracks (lyrics are printed inside the disc liner), and while adults may grow weary of these songs, those with Pikachu-obsessed children can rest assured that Totally Pokémon is clean, fun, and goofy enough to include a tune called "Song of Jigglypuff." --Paige La Grone ...

5-0 out of 5 stars "Totally Pokemon", Totally Cool!
This is a cd of music from "Pokemon: The Johto Journeys" First, there's the extended version of the "Johto" theme, it has a danceable beat, next Even Pikachu could dig "Pikachu, I Choose You!" because of its latin dance beats, "All We Wanna Do" sounds like M2M and JC Chavez, they should cover this. Tracks 4, 5, 7, and 8 are ok. "Song of Jigglypuff" is the second song to not only pay tribute to this cute pokemon, but to include it singing "Jigglypuff, Jiggly...", "Two Perfect Girls" This track rocks differently from the tv show, and "Pokerap GS" is a different rap from the first containing Gold and Silver Pokemon including my favorites, Marill, Snubbull, Togepi,etc. There are 7 karaokemon tracks, and most of the songs are performed by the group Johto. And "Two Perfect Girls" is sung by Brock.

3-0 out of 5 stars Elan Rivera shines
I have no idea which member of "Johto" she is, but she's the only one on this CD who can really sing. Pokemon Johto is cool. Pikachu i choose you is awesome...it has such a good beat, and like i said, Elan Rivera CAN SING. All we wanna do is OK, i don't really like The Game because it's not catchy or fast or unique enough. He drives me crazy is another pathetic Misty song, and I hate Misty-AND Ash-why can't they do more Team Rocket songs? I much prefer them. Anyway, the lady who sings this isn't half as good as Elan. You and me and Pokemon is fantastic, it has such a great refrain, you can sing along to it. Biggest part of my life is pretty bad. But Do ya really wanna play also has a wonderful refrain to sing to. And, once again, Rivera's voice makes it cool. She should take my advice and get her own record deal or something, she could easily outdo Britney Spears any day. Two Perfect Girls is cute...Brock's song for loving every girl he sees. The Jigglypuff song I must say I don't really like. Jigglypuff annoys me something awful on the show, the way it just shows up all the time for no reason other than to waste valuable minutes, and this song implies that Sing is Jigglypuff's most powerful attack. Ummm....as if. And, Jiggly ain't the only Pokemon who has Sing, ya know, so what's up with this song? Anyway, Never too far from home is another slow, so-so song, and the Pokerap GS is terrific. It names all the new ones. The karaoke tracks don't contain the lyrics.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cool!
I like the karoke tracks because it's fun to impress your friends with your immense knowledge of the Pokerap GS. If you're stuck between buying this and Pokemon 3, you have to decide on your tastes. If you like singing karoke a lot, buy this one. If you're just in it for extra tracks to listen to and not get bored, buy Pokemon 3. But don't buy both unless you're a really really big fan. They have almost the same songs on them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great CD!
Do These are all really good songs! Get this! Or you can hear the songs at the Pokemon Website. Not the Karaoke ones though,so if you want Karaoke then you have to buy the CD. Also its kind of blurry. Here is my opinion of them.
Pokemon Johto is the theme song for the Third series. Its okay,but not the best song on this.
I Choose You is actually pretty fun. It's my mom's favorite song on this. Its like latin or salsa or whatever you call it.
All we Wanna Do is really a great song. I love the tune. On the lyrics sheet,it has the words wrong. It really goes"All we Wanna do is have a good time. Having lots of fun with all these friends of mine. All we wanna do is Celebrate every time we've been together,its been great. Lookin' for adventure big and small,just being with our friends like you is all we wanna do."
The Game is pretty cool sounding,but I can barely understand a word they say because it has lots of people singing different things at the same time. It sounds like its awful? Don't knock it till you try it. Its pretty good.
He Drives me Crazy is a song Misty sings. Unlike Misty's Song,she's complaining about Ash's stubborn-ness.It the special review thingy. It says its in Celebration,its really in...complaintion? Is that a word? Oh well,it is. No clues of the AAML here people,if you want that buy 2. B. A. Master. Ash is a meanie. She follows him around day after day when he is complaining his lungs out(sometimes,anyway)and when she can't come along what does he do? Just leaves her there. What kind of a friend is he? Well,back to the songs.
You & Me & Pokemon is a pretty good song. Its in Pokemon Heroes,but this version is faster. Elan Rivera is really good at singing,I could never sing like her!
Biggest part of My Life I didn't like at first,but then I thought about it,and realized I could relate to it. That is exactly what I felt when I got interested in Pokemon. It couldn't descride it better if I'd written it myself. Every single word describes what it felt like to start getting into Pokemon. Especialy"Never knew that it would be the biggest part of my life!" and"Everyone talking about it every where. I geuss I just wasn't listening."
Do Ya Really Wanna Play? is a cool song. I just like the sound of it,and the words fit together. Its really fun to sing the third verse.
Song Of Jigglypuff is a really cool-sounding song. The really blurry version on the computer sounds better than the actual thing.
Two Perfect Girls is Brock's song,but I'm certain you could have geussed that from the title. At first i was embarrassed to listen to this song,but now I think its hillarious. Brock is really embarrassing though. When I watch Pokemon I sometimes scream because he's so embarrassing.
Never Too Far From Home is okay I geuss. Not great,not horrible.
Pokerap GS is a pretty cool sounding song in parts. When athey start saying all the Pokemon names though,it can get kind of boring.
That's the CD. Overall,I'd say it great,get it,you won't regret it(unless maybe you have Pokemon 3 soundtrack. But even then,you might still want both).

5-0 out of 5 stars The best Pokemon CD ever!
This is definately one of the best songs. THer's like,two songs on it I don't to listen to over and over and over.
Pokemon Johto Is the Pokemon Johto Theme Song*duh*
I CHoose You is a real full of energy song. The Singer does a pretty good job,exept sometimes. Some of the words are kind of dumb,but its definately worth putting on the Cd. I think its about when Ash fist got Pikachu,but I might be wrong cause if it where it should be on 2.B.A Master.
All we wanna do is a really good song. The singers do a good job. The words are pretty good. But the thing that makes it best is the chorus music. I just like the sound of it. I can't really tell what it has to do with pokemon,it was probably on an episode(I don't know as much about pokemon as I used to)
The Game is okay,but I'm kind of tired of hearing Pokemon songs that start with stuff like "Together wherever we go" the chorus is definately the best. But I can't tell if this songs about anything in particualr.
He Drives Me Crazy is one of my favorite songs. I just wish things would turn out better for Ash and Misty. THEY ARE IN LOVE HELLOOO PEOPLE! NOW YOUR NEVER GONNA SEE EACHOTHER AGAIN!! YOU STUPID CRAZY DUMMIES! YOU COULD AT LEAST LEAVE WITH A FIRENDLY GOOODBYE OR SOMETHING!! Or at least,I think this is what this songs about. I never actually saw that episode.
I love You And Me And Pokemon. It makes me think of my friend Diana when we both liked Pokemon when we where 8. Then she started aiming to be cool instead of pokemon loving and I eventually grew out of it.
I really don't like BIggest Part of my life. Some parts are OK though
Do Ya Really Wanna Play is so cool. It reminds me of something Britney Spears would sing though. Or maybe No Secrets. But this singer is so much better. The chorus is totally cool
Song OF Jigglypuff is really cool sounding.
Two Perfect Girls is one of songs that can crack you up if your in a bad mood but gets kind of annoying if you listen too it too much.
Never Two Far from home is boring I think. It's some good,but not much.
Pokerap GS reminds me of Valentinea,my pokemon Pikachu 2 GS cuz they both end with GS wich stands for Gold Silver. IT;s ok,but the rapping part is kind of dumb. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Bootleg.
I'm pretty sure this cd is unofficial. I got a copy a while back and it is not that great. You can tell it is not an official copy because they used the wrong logo, and there are no mentions of WB or Nintendo's officially licensed product seal anywhere on it. The quality of the songs are also very low. One of the singers pronounces Pokemon "Pokeman," and the other sounds like he is singing into a jar. The instruments are simplified a bit, and the whole thing is lacking. It is definetly not as good as the real song.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice to see this has been released.
This single is a lifesaver. Finally, they have decided to release a Pokémon single. Now all we need is the Pokerap. ^_^

4-0 out of 5 stars POKEMON CD AN A+
I WAS NOT SURE WHAT I WAS GETTING WHEN I ORDEREED THIS CD FOR MY KIDS FOR CHRISTMAS BUT WAS PLEASED WITH THE MUSIC AND MY KIDS ENJOYED IT ALSO...IT IS A DEFINITE A+ IN MY HOUSE! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Pikachus Roasting Over An Open Fire...
Quite possibly the last English Pokemon CD release, Pokemon Christmas Bash isn't quite a bash, but fans will find a few tracks they will enjoy, while other tracks may make them cringe. For the most part, the characters do a good job of singing, aside from Prof. Oak, who sings Track 2. The first track is the opening track for the CD, and is kinda lame, though using James's strange "oooh!"s for music cues was kinda funny. Track 3 is catchy, but it makes you feel dirty for enjoying basically bubble gum pop. Track 4 has Meowth in all his tone deaf glory complaining about Christmas. Track 5 is a duet with Brock and Misty, and though the opening dialouge is pretty corny, the actual music is pretty good. Track 6 is a brilliant track featuring Jessie, James and Meowth in their rendition of the Christmas Song. Track 7 is an amusing song that I actually found myself laughing out loud at the end of it. Track 8 is rather boring, but Track 9, a Pokemon version of "The Night Before Christmas" is pretty funny, involving all of the main characters fighting for a chance to read the poem. Track 10 is a medley of various Christmas song, Poke-fied, of course. And the final two tracks are karaoke tracks.
Overall, this is a pretty nice disc for Pokemon fans, though they may enjoy this less than previous releases. Still, Tracks 6, 7 and 9 make it worth buying.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pokemon Christmas! How fun!
I only own three Pokemon CD's, but this is by far, my favorite of them. I can listen to this CD many times in a row for hours and hours, it's so adorable! The best tracks were:

#1 Pokemon Christmas Bash (entire cast)
#3 Winter is the coolest time of year (misty)
#4 Nobody don't like Christmas (meowth)
#5 I keep my home in my heart (brock & misty)
#6 The Christmas song (team rocket)
#7 Under the mistletoe (misty & ash)
#9 The night before Christmas (entire cast)
#10 Christmas medley (entire cast)

Tracks 11 and 12 are karaoke versions of 2 and 10.

The only songs I don't listen to all of the time are:

#2 I'm giving Santa a Pikachu this Christams (professor oak & ash)
#8 Must be Santa (ash, brock & misty)

and the karaoke tracks, because I haven't learned all the words just yet!

I would reccomend this CD to anyone who like Pokemon songs, or wants to hear the best Christmas songs with different words! The Christmas medley is probably the most adored over all because it's a mess of Christmas songs we all know, only with a Pokemon twist!

4-0 out of 5 stars Well...
It was okay. I expected a little more from Pokemon, but it was as I said before, okay.

1.Pokemon Christmas Bash: It was kind of cheesy. It would have been better if they hadn't have used James "oooh" while singing it. The "Squ,Squ,Squirtle" and "Pika, Pika" were kind of cheesy fill ins. But overall, this song wasn't "Aaaah!! Take the headphones!! OFF!!" bad.
2.I'm giving Santa This Christmas: I just like the "I have a surprise for St. Nick and it's something that going to give him a kick" part. It sounds like Pikachu will kick poor Santa or something ^^
3.Winter is the Coolest Time of Year: This one's got a upbeat attitude to it. If you're depressed about Winter, listen to this one. Misty was the right one to have sing. I really love the part where they say "How about a Tentacool!! Or a Fridgeoto! Let's build a Butterfreeze!!"
4.Nobody Don't Like Christmas: This one's got a comical approach. Meowth was the right one to have sing this also. "When the chocolate hit's their lips, it goes directly to their hips" was my favorite part ^^
5.I Keep My Home in my Heart: At first it kind of seemed too much of a rock and roll song for the feeling of the song. But the actual singing part was good, though.
6.The Christmas Song: This one's sung by Team Rocket, so it's funny, especially when they actually used James "oooh" in the right place.
7.Under the Mistletoe: I liked this song, because it's kind of funny to think about what Ash and Misty really would've done if they made an episode of some of these.
8.Must be Santa: This was sort of a spin-off on the original song. But, if you're forced to sing this song at Christmas, put this version on, and you'll get some weird looks. It's great ^^
9.The Night Before Christmas: This one is a really funny one with not a lot of singing if any. It's funny to see the weird looks on people's faces when you put this one on and you actually know all the words to it.
10.Christmas Medley: This one's probably my favorite of all of them. It's funny also to sing along to and get weird faces also ^^ It's great when they start rock and rolling to a beat.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a great Pokemon Christmas CD!!!!
Wow!! This Pokemon CD is awesome. It has so many great songs that are performed by the voice actors from Pokemon. It is a great CD to get you in the holiday spirt. All the songs have the own special lyrics that have to do with Christmas and Pokemon!! My favorite songs are Pokéman Christmas Bash, Under the Mistletoe and Christmas Medley!! But I love all the songs on this CD!! If you are a Pokéman Fan then Pokemon: Christmas Bash is a must have!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Differentiates itself from the other Pokemon CDs
Unlike the other Pokemon CDs, this one has the actual voice actors sing the lyrics rather than hiring artists to do it. They actually do an admirable job at it. The music itself is also a bit different, being a lot more "Christmasy" then the typical 80s rock/rap music used in Pokemon. Out of the three Pokemon tracks I've listened to this one's probably my favorite. The opening song gets pretty corny, but the remaining song are good. Track 7, "Under the Mistletoe," is another song dealing with the romance between Ash and Misty, and it's a very well-done song. I'd reccomend this to Pokemon fans and people who just like Christmas music. ... Read more

From the Flashdance-like opener, "Pokémon Theme," to the closer, "You Can Do It (If You Really Try)," 2.B.A. Master is high-energy fare. This CD sports an over-the-top flavor drawn from video-game-styled electronic blips, disco danceability, and the hollow tripped-out beats of theme-park musicals, all of which makes this super hot stuff for the Pokémon generation. The 13 tunes here are spread between action narrative ("What Kind of Pokémon Are You?," "Together Forever"), scene-setting devices ("Viridian City"), and character theme songs for our hero Ash, his Pokémon Pickachu, and his pal Misty, as well as rival trainers, Team Rocket. "What Kind of Pokémon Are You?" features multitracked rapping and R&B choral refrains; the superlative "2.B.A. Master" bursts with space-age Michael Jackson-inspired speak-singing and electronic riffs; and not only is the funky "PokéRap" featured in audio, but the enhanced disc contains the visual component as well. --Paige La Grone ...

I love this CD. We rented it from the library and then we absoulutely HAD to buy it because it was so good! I don't really like pokemon that much anymore(I started liking it when Yugioh was starting to take it's place as "the thing",I actually hated it when everybody liked it)but I still LOVe the CD! It containsa my favorite song(Misty's Song) and others I love. THere is only one song on it I don't like witch is "You can do it"wich I almost always skip. And even that one I am starting to like(but it took me two years to get used to it)Please buy this,I know you'll love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Whoa...
This CD is for hard-core Pokemon fans and people who know nothing about Pokemon at all! It's a great CD and the music is fantastic! Here's my opinion about some of them:

-Pikachu's Goodbye is a very emotional song and it can make you feel likd of...sad. The episode wasn't so cheerful either. Good song, eitherway.

-Pokemon Theme...Quite the contrary of Pikachu's Goodbye and it's great song!

-My Best Friends isn't my favorite song of all. But as I like it a bit, it deserves some recognition.

Those were just my opinions of 3 songs, though. This CD is quite upbeat and sometimes it's more of a song you'd listen to in the car for enjoyment. I would recommend this to hard-core; pokemon lovers!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow...
This CD rocks! It might now sound like much, but it's spectacular! My favs. are Pikachu's Goodbye and the Pokemon theme. Pikachu's Goodbye isn't a really upbeat song. But if you must know, it's actually a pretty sad song. The epi. is pretty sad, too. The Pokemon theme is a pretty good song and on the CD, atleast they made it longer! Wow, that's neat, isn't it? ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing: Some of the BEST soundtrack that I've ever heard...
How would I sum up this CD in one word: BRILLIANT! The music on this CD is of such a high standard that I just can't stop listening to it. My favourite track is Invitation to Danger, mostly because of the first 90 seconds if it: that is really powerful, emotional music. The same can be said for Surviving the Storm and Three on Three. Mew's Theme was a little disappointing, as it is only 30 seconds long, but is nonetheless, quite cute. This CD is a must for anyone who really liked the movie.

5-0 out of 5 stars So beutiful that words can't discribe it.
I have this Cd and it's hard to belive that this wonderful music didn't win any awards. Whats wrong with them just because it was made by the people from pokemon doesn't mean they don't work. It's like a priceless gem. If your a music fan or a pokemon fan or anyone I recomend this.

1-0 out of 5 stars Contrived
How does this soundtrack deserve one star you ask? It's complex, but it is entire justified, seeing as Pokemon's popularity has died dramatically. This CD is one of the reasons why.

When Pokemon The First Movie came out, I had high hopes. This was the movie that would make or break Pokemon. Unfortunately, due to ridiculous script changes, bad voice acting, and a completely (and unreasonable) new soundtrack, the movie was ruined. So was Pokemon. The original score was dark, beautiful, and exciting. This one... well wasn't much of anything. I don't think people today understand how vital a soundtrack is to a movie. By removing the original soundtrack, they have removed any character and depth that the movie contained and replaced it with the blandness and superficiality of a "Batman" cartoon.

I honestly don't understand the reviews here. The music is bland and unexciting. And I certainly don't see in any way how this soundtrack is a lick better than the original Japanese soundtrack ("Birth of" CD Boxset, do try it!) One only needs to listen to the actual soundtrack found on that boxset, and realize how much better it is than this contrived junk.

The truth of the matter is, WB thought they could save a few bucks and pay one of their "Justice League" or "Jackie Chan Adventures" (one of those poorly rated and failed WB shows) synthesizers to conjure up some sort of soundtrack to fill in 70 minutes of movie time. Such filthy treatment of a franchise that had been so good to them is deplorable. Because the WB didn't take care of Pokemon, it went downhill.

Let it be known that the WB ruined Pokemon by being cheap, ineffective, and by robbing Pokemon of the premises that made it great, such as original music, script, and decent voice acting. 4Kids had the right idea to stick to as close to the Japanese as possible, but when WB came into the picture, the WB toiled and tampered with Pokemon making it more Americanized and contrived, and thus, the WB ruined the franchise. This CD is one of the factors, and the damage that it has caused is why this CD fails as a Pokemon product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mew's Theme is adorable!
I brought this cd because I love Pokemon the first movie and I think it has some wonderful music. My favorite track is by far Mew's Theme, even if it is only 30 seconds long. Mew is my favorite Pokemon and the song is very cute. If your a fan of the first Pokemon movie, this cd is a must.

5-0 out of 5 stars an excellent CD
I actually got this CD for the sake of the promo cards, but the music is really worth taking a look at:

1) Aiming To Be Pokemon Master - the first opening credits song, difficult to learn to sing, but once you learn to say the words that fast, singing it is a blast. Not my favorite arrangement of the song, but better for us altos as it's a whole step lower than the other version (later on this CD).

2) Summer Vacation Fan Club - weird song from Pikachu's vacation. If the music was less weird I'd like it more.

3) 151 - first of MANY closing credits songs. This is sung by Pokemon Kids and Professor Oak...who has a particular singing voice that annoys me because of the way he says his vowels. He is the only reason I have for disliking this song.

4) Can You Draw Pokemon? - sung by Pokemon Kids, Raymond, and Imakuni?. I like this song if only because I find Raymond's blatantly American accent and intonations amusing. The words in the song tell you how to draw Pikachu, Mew, Dugtrio, Tangela, Chansey and Poliwag.

5) Team Rocket Forever - this variety of music doesn't appeal to me so I don't normally listen to the song, but it does give an opportunity to listen to the Japanese Team Rocket voices.

6) Can You Say Pokemon? - I like to think of this as the equivolent to the PokeRaps. Wonderful to learn to sing, though the singer Imakuni? is very weird. Again, Raymond's funny.

7) Singing Pokedex: Normal Pokemon part 1 - Pokedex entries put to music. I like the range of music this song has: a different style for each of the 8 different Pokemon: Chansey, Clefairy, Clefable, Eevee, Jigglypuff, Wigglytuff, Ditto, and Snorlax.

8) Please Trade - This is my sister's favorite song...again, because of Raymond's antics. (Also sung by Imakuni? and Kobayashi.) The style of this song is not as weird as the other songs on this CD: it's actually normal sounding. The words talk all about getting along while trading.

9) Pika Pika in the Middle of Chu - the title is a pun and isn't easily translated, but oh well. This is an extremely CUTE song and I LOVE it...until Professor Oak starts singing toward the middle. Still, it's on my favorite play lists.

10) Meowth's Song - good song with guitar and other synthy instruments. Japanese Meowth is the singer. Other Meowth songs like Team Rocket Forever and Meowth's Party are really weird, but this song is quite nice.

11) Together with the Wind - I absolutely adore this song. It's orchestral, which is a nice break from the trendy synth songs previous on this CD. The lyrics are also magnificent. This song is in all of my Japanese playlists.

12) Aim to be Pokemon Master '98 - mix of the opening credits song for the Mewtwo movie. This is, I think, a much better arrangement of the song--a little sharper. (The words etc. are exactly the same in both versions, except in the lyrics book this version has furigana ;) I love singing this song.

13) Bonus Track: Can You Say Pokemon, Baby? - If I though the first Japanese PokeRap was weird, this is insane. The music is more bizarre and Raymond's in-betweens are more random, if that was even possible.

OVERALL GRADE: I'd give it a B+ in terms of quality of music. On amazon.com I gave it 5 stars because it's presents a fantastic range of the best Japanese Pokemon music--instead of buying many single CDs, you can buy this summary, so to speak--for those who otherwise can't acquire large numbers of other Japanese Pokemon CDs (or wouldn't want to because of the expense involved), and because it's a "full" CD (with 60 minutes of music) as opposed to some of the other Pokemon CDs, which are only usually about "half full" (with only 30 minutes). It is also home to 2 of my all-time favorite Japanese songs (tracks 11 and 12). And, of course, I happened to purchase the version with the 10 exceedingly rare Japanese promotional cards, which by itself is justification for getting this CD.

4-0 out of 5 stars Just Because It Says Pokemon Doesn't Mean It's Bad
I'm going to admit to you one thing right off: I am a fan of Pokemon. But not ALL Pokemon. For example, the American anime is bad. The marketing to small children is bad (I'm not under 10, just so you know). The pure sickening merchandising and bundled music (on the American CDs) is bad. But I did not mention two things: The game (It's still great and unique, even if it is a little childish, but it's still great for trips) and the Japanese music. It is the Japanese music that I am concerned with here.

In my opinion, SOME (not all) of the Japanese Pokemon music is great. And ALL of it is better than the American music, in every single way. So for me to rate this album, I gave it 4 stars. Now to discuss each track:

1. Mezase Pokemon Master - A very nice rock piece sung by Rika Matsumoto (the voice of Satoshi/Ash in Japan) that was the music to the first opening in Japan. It's quite catchy, and I've managed to memorize most of the lyrics (and for good reason too. It's not bad.) If you've ever played Pokemon Pinball, you know that weird music that doesn't seem to fit in with the rest that's the capture music on the blue board? That's this track, except GameBoy-style.
2. Natsu Yasumi Fanclub - A kitchy kiddy piece that was used for the opening to Pikachu's Vacation (the sketch before Mewtwo Strikes Back) in Japan. Not bad, but it is a bit kiddy.
3. Hyaku Gojuu Ichi - The name means 151, just so you know. This is a strange song (But not the strangest. I'll get to that in a bit.) that was used for the first ending in Japan. It's interesting, and better than Natsu Yasumi Fanclub, but not TOO great.
4. Pokemon Kakerukana? - Another strange song much like Hyaku Gojuu Ichi. This song was used in a CD that was essentially used to give instructions on how to draw Pokemon. Yeah. Weird. But not as strange as the next song.
5. Utau Pokemon Zukan * Normal Pokemon Part 1 - I have yet to find anything from the CD that this came from, other than this track. It's an interesting ditty that is essentially the Japanese Pokedex, sung (That's what Utau Pokemon Zukan means, Singing Pokedex).
6. Rocket Dan Yo Eien Ni - For all you Team Rocket fans, this is the track you want. You remember the episode where Jigglypuff was first introduced? You remember the Rockets singing during that ep? Well this is that. But longer. And with the Japanese Rocket Motto thrown into the middle. Interesting, and another fairly good high point on the album. (Did you know that Musashi/Jessie is voiced (in Japan) by Megumi Hayashibara? If you know who that is, then you now know that she sings in this song.)
7. Pokemon Ierukana? - THIS is the weird song (well, and one more further down the line). Sung by Imakuni? (Yes, the question mark is part of his name). You know the Pokerap? Well, this is the Japanese Pokerap. Except not in rap. And not with the American names. You really don't want to know what types of music are in this. Due to its weirdness, this ranks up there as one of the more INTERESTING tracks of the CD. There's a version for Gold and Silver too (but not on this disc) named Pokemon Ierukana? neo.
8. Torikaekko Please - This song was used for a commercial in Japan (a lot of commercial songs are released as singles in Japan for some reason) and is essentially a song used to advertise Pokemon Trading Cards. The song has to do with Trading Pokemon Cards.
9. Pika Pika Massaichu - This one was the counterpart to Natsu Yasumi Fanclub. So it's the ending theme. It's also very kiddy.
10. Nyaasu no Uta - A very nice song (second ending in Japan) sung by Meowth. It's soft, slow, and almost sad. This might ALSO be because it's about Meowth singing about how lonely he is, as the only pokemon able to speak English/Japanese.
11. Kaze to Issho ni - The ending to Mewtwo Strikes Back. Very orchestral and grand. And very nice. Nearing the end, we're at the final high point of the album (that lasts through the next two tracks)
12. Mezase Pokemon Master '98 - Same song, new style. This song was used for the opening of Mewtwo Strikes Back. Just as good as the first version. (There are two other versions, used for the second Neo season, and the fourth movie)
13. Pokemon Ierukana Baby? - OK. You want weirdness again? One last time before this albums over! You get Ierukana again! But even stranger! This song is a bonus track only available on this album. The others were on singles.

So to sum it up, this CD is a very good one to start your forays into Japanese Pokemon music. It has its high points, and it has its low points. But it's MUCH better than anything released over here. There are other Singles you may want to find too (As this only covers releases through the first movie) including: OK! (The first Neo Opening song), Nyaasu no Party (Another ending song during the second half of the Orange Islands), toi et moi (Ending to Revelation Lugia, done by Namie Amuro. Good way to start getting into JPop, though not the best), and Ready Go! (The latest opening theme. As the latest movie and its singles have come out in Japan, this song (redone) is probably one the opening. I'm eager to hear it).

4-0 out of 5 stars The best collection really is the best!
I received this CD as a gift a long while back, about two and a half years ago. I also got a cd single called "Meowth's Party" (yes, they have the front cover in English), and listend to that one first. Man, it cracked me up the first time I heard it since I wasn't used to Meowth's Japanese voice. Too bad they don't sell it here. If you ever get the chance to get your hands on Meowth's Party, buy it! All 5 of those tracks are great! Anywho, here's my review for this CD. It... is... (pauses to build suspense...) ... ... TRULY THE BEST! Here's a review of each track. (Track titles are as Winamp tells me.)
1)MEZASE PokemonMaster -- This is the opening theme. Far superior to the English version. Satoshi's (Ash's) Jap. VA is wonderfull!
2)NATSUYASUMI FanClub -- I believe it's the opening to Pikachu's Summer Vacation. It's cute.
3)HYAKUGOJYUICHI -- I think this is the first end theme. It's EXTREEMLY catchy.
4)Pokemon KAKERUKANA? -- One of the Imakuni? songs I think. Imakuni? scares me.
5)RocketDAN YO EIEN NI -- A Team Rocket character vocal. It's very good. They even stop in the middle of the song to say their motto.
6)Pokemon IERUKANA? -- I believe it's another Imakuni? song. They ask how your mouth is rolling today. (?!) I think this is the Japanese PokeRAP.
7)UTAU Pokemon ZUKAN / Normal Pokemon part1 -- The singer goes through a few of the Normal-type Pokemon (Eevee, Ditto, Snorlax, Clefairy, etc... cute stuff) and sings a little bit of information about the Pokemon. This is VERRY cute! Cute singing and adorable music! I wish I had a karaoke version.
8)TORIKAEKKO Please -- Another scarry Imakuni? song.
9)PIKAPIKA MASSAI TYU -- About Pikachu, but it's charming. I like the music.
10)Nya-su NO UTA -- Meowth's kawaii little character vocal. It's about the moon and how it's rounder than the world will ever be, then the second half is about that saying of how everyone has a look-alike somewhere, and he's wondering what his look-alike is doing, and if the look-alike is also lonely. It's very sweet.
11)KAZE TO ISSYONI -- Very beautiful and moving. I think this is the end theme to the first movie.
12)MEZASE PokemonMaster '98 -- The opening to the first movie, Mewtwo Strikes Back. I don't know which version of this I prefer, they're both fantastic! I wish I had a karaoke version of this one...
Pokemon IERUKANA Baby? -- And yet another Imakuni? song! Jeze, why couldn't they get Two-Mix (did a lot of Gundam Wing songs) or Satou Akemi (Fushigi Yuugi) or someone else? Imakuni? is freaky!
Well, all this good stuff comes in a beautifully illustrated/constructed book. Instead of being a jewle-case, this is in a cardboard book with a nice plastic slip cover. GORGEOUS! This CD would be a beautiful addition to ANY collection!

5-0 out of 5 stars Could it be?! Another excellent CD!!

5-0 out of 5 stars This CD was better in a few ways than the first CD.
This CD is great. In some aspects I say that it's much better than the first Pokemon CD (2.B.A. Master). Some were sad, some were really good. This CD also contains the new Pokemon Theme, M2M's "Don't Say You Love Me", Vitamin C's "Vacation" from Pikachu's Vacation. 98 Degrees' "Fly With Me" and two others. Contained "Catch Me If You Can", another song from Pikachu's Vacation. Then the sad "Brother My Brother" from Mewtwo Strikes Back. And then there was the new Pokemon Theme. Of putting the two Pokemon Theme songs together. I would say that the newer one is much better than the original one. It's a little bit more fast-paced in a good sense. Same words, only a few background voices to make it even better. This CD is perfect for a Pokemon fanatic or a fanatic who likes Pokemon music or the movie. It still would make a great gift for any Pokemon fan. It really doesn't matter. As long as you like Pokemon, that's all that's required. This was an excellent CD. If you put the two Pokemon CD's together, it would probably be even better than it would be.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not too bad - a few songs are good. :)
After owning 2 B A Master, and being literally blown away by Mew vs. Mewtwo, I figured I'd check out the soundtrack. I was hoping that they'd have the actual score from the movie in there - but oh well - some of the songs are just gorgeous. My personal favorites are The Main Theme, Lullabye, and Brother My Brother. Vacation is okay, I've just listened to it so many times. The only thing I don't get - is why is there a love song on there? There was no romance involved in the movie - even with Ash and Misty. Brother My Brother is just beautiful, while Lullabye is cute and a fun-type of song, and the Main Theme is awesome - who'd have thought of making it a techno thing? (and of course, being a fan of techno makes it even more awesome.) The only thing I didn't like was having NSync and Britany Spears on there. They easily could have replaced them with some of the scores from the movie. *sigh* oh well, guess I'll have to just get the score soundtrack. :) But all in all, I really love this album , (even if it is just for 4 songs,) and would reccommend it to anyone who likes uplifting music. :)

This soundtrack is really different from most Pokemon soundtracks, as it's sung by the most modern, best singers! Here's some opinions from me:

-Pokemon Theme; totally techno and a really neat song. You can listen to this all the time and never get tired of it!
-Brother my Brother; a good song, soft (not loud) but it can depict scenes inside your mind pretty well.
-Don't Say You Love Me. I don't understand why a love song is in here, but it's sung by M2M, so I'd have to give them credit--This song might not fit in but it's great!
-If Tears Could Bring You Back is a great song. It's basically for your listening pleasure, as it's really a song you would hear on the radio, and it's fine.

This CD is a fine-tuned CD and the songs are right on beat and have very good timing! I think you should get this CD right away!
-Great for listening in the car.

5-0 out of 5 stars I LOVE IT
I love this cd,it has alot of pop and it has some of my favorite pop singers!

3-0 out of 5 stars An Okay CD
What disapoints me is that the CD,plainly doesn't have anything to do with the movie. I do like the new version of the Poke'mon theme though,and "If only tears could bring you back" and "Brother,my brother" are beautiful songs. I don't get why the main song is "Don't say you love me" because romance is not the main theme of the movie. The rest of the CD is clearly for Teenyboppers. Almost all of the songs are by popular artists and have nothing to do with Pokemon. My theory:Money.
I reccomend this CD to EXTREME Poke'mon fans and teenyboppers(Kids who are obsessed with popular music artists for example Britney Spears,N*Sync,Backstreet Boys). ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Soundtrack!
Hello! My nickname's Flamer so that's what you should call me (at least on the internet). I thought the Pokemon 2000 soundtrack was very interesting. I think it's for Pokemon fans who like Pokemon A LOT! With both songs, "They Don't Understand" and "Blah, Blah, Blah" it gives a chance to show Pokemon fans out there how much they really like it! So here is my rating for each of the songs (out of 10).

1. The Power of One-6
Not a bad song, but personally, I don't think it's the best. It's quite nice and the shorter version of it is at the end of the movie. All in all, it was good.

2. Dreams-9
This was a very good song. Nice tune, good words, etc. I liked the fact that is explained that you can do almost anything if you really try! I totally agree with that!

3. They Don't Understand-7
I liked this one a bit. It says that parents don't understand about Pokemon and sometimes it's right! So there's some truth to this song.

4. Wonderland-10
My favorite song on the whole soundtrack! During this song, listeners can imagine there going to the Pokemon World! At least... that's what I do. Kids who wish Pokemon was real can really think that in this song. "We're going to a Wonderland!" Yeah! We're going to the Pokemon World!

5. With All Your Heart-5
A slow song that I don't hear that often. It's ok, but I don't like it.

6. The Extra Mile-7
The first few times I heard this song, I didn't like it and thought it was too slow, but I grew into it and now it's one of my favorite songs on the track.

7. Flying Without Wings-7
This song was quite nice. It had a nice melody and it was in the end of the movie with a few others. Not a bad song at all.

8. Pokemon World-8
Definately one of the best! It's the theme song for the second season of Pokemon in case you didn't know. It's got great rhythum and a cool tune. A very good song indeed!

9. Blah, Blah, Blah-9
This was a very good song as well. It says that Pokemon fans play their Pokemon games a lot and that their teachers and parents dislike that they play it so much. I think it's a great song and should be heard by lots of Pokemon fans!

10. Polkamon-9
Weird Al Yankovic did a great job here! Mixing polka with Pokemon-what a combanation!

11. The Chosen One-8
At first, I thought it was really weird because all they did was repeat the legend, but later on, I learned to like it and I think the tune on it is great!

12. One Heart-6
Not one of my favorite songs but it's all right. It's a bit slow and doesn't really tell you a message and doesn't have a good melody, but it's ok.

13. One-7
"One" was a reasonable song even though it was slow. It was pretty good and the melody wasn't half bad.

14. Comin' to the Rescue-6
This was a song that I couldn't stand after hearing it several times. I think it's a nice song with good beat and melody, but it's not one the better songs on the soundtrack.

15. Dance of the Bellossom-7
This was a cute song with a lot of Pokemon singing in it. Though it was short, I felt it was really cool. Who would have thought Pokemon could sing (other than Jigglypuff)?

16. The Legend Comes to Life-7
A song that was all right, but hearing it from the movie is way better! You don't get the sound effects of the legendary birds or Lugia or Ash or... you get the point. It's way better on the movie.

Well, see ya for now!

i hate this cd so much i burnt it.you might like it if you like chinese opera .

ps,dont let your kids listen yo this evil cd

5-0 out of 5 stars I loved this cd :-)
I got this cd and I loved it from the first time I heard it. The songs are great and fit the theme and mood of the movie perfectly; The Power of One. The only one that I didn't like was "They Don't Understand" which was too OBVIOUS... However, the other songs were all great, and I listen to the cd all the time, despite my friends' glares :-). This cd is also great if you're one of those people who fell in love with Lugia's Song instantly, (like me,) and watch the movie again and again to hear it. The last track is "The Legend Comes to Life" which is from the end of the movie when Melody plays her ocarina. It's definitely my favorite song EVER. The orchastration is just beautiful, and all of the instruments meld together to form one, breathtaking piece that turns the flute solo into a triumphant.... well, orchestra. Then, the piece smoothly lets the flautist take control at the very end. I guarantee that any pokémon lover would want to make this soundtrack a permenant addition to their collection, and even some no-pokemaniacs will want it. :-)

4-0 out of 5 stars Wired al steales show
Some good songs but wired al makes a hit song of polka metting pokemon and what do you get polkamon this was the only song that saves it from being a 1 star cd.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good...very good
This CD is very useful to have when you really love Pokemon and are anxiously anticipating the release of the movie. Here's the low-down on each song individually:

The Power of One-Donna Summer:Very pretty and meaningful song. I rarely skip over it.

Dreams-Alysha:This is cool, with a nice beat. One of the best on the album.

The Don't Understand-Dream Street:Ain't it the truth! If you can't figure out why parents don't get Pokemon, this rockin' song is one you'll like!

Wonderland-Angela Via:So-so. Great the first few times, but I wouldn't listen to it too much. I got bored with it.

With All Your Heart-plus ONE/The Extra Mile-Laura Pausini/Flying Without Wings-Westlife: I'm mixing these three together because they're all pretty similar. Slow, beautiful when you're in the mood for them, but annoying when you want something faster with a cooler refrain. I personally think The Extra Mile is the best one out of this quiet trio. They've all probably done better.

Pokemon World-Youngstown w/ Nobody's Angel:Super! This is the new theme song from the beginning of the cartoon, for those who watch it.

Blah, Blah, Blah-Devotion 2 Music:My 2nd favorite song on this CD. Who says Pokemon's not for teens? This one expresses the urge we feel to play the game rather than go to school. "Blah, blah, blah" is what the parents and teachers say(in a funny voice, I might add!)

Polkamon-Weird Al:Very cute song, this is. Names most, but not all, the Pokemon to a Polka tune.

The Chosen One-B-52's:My favorite song on the whole album! This one summarizes what the movie's about, and the music is really neat. So are the voices. It's basically the legend of the 3 birds from the beginning of the movie put to music. Very cool.

One Heart-O-Town/One-Denisse Lara:These are the other two slow songs that mean the same thing as Track 1, just without the same gorgeous tune. I usually skip them, and they're pretty much all that lowered my rating of this from 5 to 4 stars.

Comin' to the Rescue-O-Town:The second O-Town song. This one is featured in the mini-movie "Pikachu's Rescue Adventure." It's another so-so because it sounds like a really cool tune at first, but gets repetative after a while.

Dance of the Bellossom/Power of One score:Mostly instrumental. The Bellossom one is only a minute long but is really cute and contains many Pokemon voices:Vileplume, Gloom, Poliwrath, Seaking, Magikarp, and Tentacool, to name a few. The last one is somewhere between 4 and 5 minutes and comes from the scene with Lugia flying Ash. To rate just that from 1 to 10, it's a 5-perfectly average.

THERE! Hope this helped ya! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good-- wish there were more like this
I've proudly owned this cd for over a year, yet still I listen to it as if I'd just received it. I wish subsequent Pokemon BGM cd's were released for later seasons. As far as the music in the Spero scene not being included, it is, technically. Remember this is a Japanese Import soundtrack. It does not contain the American BGM that is inserted into the show at times. Having imported episode 1 from Japan, I've learned the music THEY use for that scene is Track 22-- the Main Battle Theme. Hope this helps.

5-0 out of 5 stars American Pokemon anime fans behold!!!
This is one of those hidden gems of the Pokemon universe. I've been a fan of the dubbed anime ever since it started, and I was surprised that they never released a "score" soundtrack with the background music. Eventually, I noticed this Japanese CD, bought it immediately, and I couldn't be more happy with it! The first track is the Japanese anime opening song, which is actually pretty good, and the rest of the tracks are the background music from the anime just as they were used.

Having said that, I do have some thoughts... As great as this CD is, I feel it is my duty to everyone out there to point out a few little flaws that don't really affect my enjoyment, but may affect other people. After each track is a mildly annoying interjection by the Japanese Pokedex that goes on for a good 30 seconds (depending on the track), but it's simple enough to push the "next track" button (provided you're not driving; you'll end up doing it about every three minutes) or to burn an "edited" copy with all of that cut. Plus, in the ether between tracks 1 & 2 is an extremely annoying exchange between the Japanese Ash & Pikachu. Again, simple to remedy but annoying nonetheless. For me, the biggest problem with this CD is that there is a very small handful of songs that didn't make it onto this disc. Remember that music that was used inside the gyms in the GB game as well as the anime? It's gone. The dramatic music in the first episode as Ash & Pikachu are biking away from the Spearow? Gone. Again, not a crucial factor, but if you just so happen to really like those songs, it kind of [is bad] that they weren't included.

Well, those are the ups-and-downs of this CD in my view. I tried to be very thorough so anyone reading this can make their own judgment. Personally, I would advise people who like the background music in the anime to go ahead and buy this disc despite the flaws. If you like the music, you should be able to tolerate the aforementioned quirks with relative ease.

5-0 out of 5 stars Kewl!
This is a very cool CD despite the money. There are 42 songs total. And a special bonus track as I'd like to call it of Poketto Ni Fantajii or Fantasy In A pocket sung by Matsumoto Rika (Ash's jap voice) and some girl. Plus it has the backgrounds to the eps and the full length tital song in jap. Also between songs , the pokŽdex says the tital of the song and a description of it. And Satoshi (Ash) and Pikachu give a "shocking" interview. Heehh
Get this it is worth the bucks!!

5-0 out of 5 stars This album ROCKS!!!
OK... I want to but this *so I'm begging* but I've heard this before. THE ALBUM ROCKS! I saw that there were 32 BGM trax and a book with stickies. A must-buy (although I don't have it, ...)

5-0 out of 5 stars If you love the Pokemon TV BGM, the buy this NOW!
This is a great import CD which include the opening and ending themes, as well as most of the season one background music of Pokemon (US and Japan). Most of the tracks end with a short commentary by, I'm assuming, the Japanese PokeDex. If the PokeDex gets too annoying, he can always be edited out if you have the ways and means (i.e. sound editing software).

The CD also comes with a small hardcover book about who-knows-what with pictures and what-nots, but it's a nice thing to have nonetheless.

I bought this CD for only one track, the Team Rocket theme but I was extremely pleased with the rest of the music. It's real music orchestrated with real instruments (most of the time) unlike the music used in some American toons. The CD costs in the neighborhood of around $40 but hey, it's an import and imports don't come cheap. But trust me, it will be money well spent. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Golden sun, and silver moon...^_^
The first song is "OK!" which is a cool song. The next one is "Type:Wild!" (the English version) which is good but I prefer the Japanese one. And the last track is the karaoke version of "OK!". And the CD has a video of "Meowth's Party" on it! ^_^ A very cool CD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent CD!
This is an excellent CD! It's a CD single that is only 3 inches. There are 3 tracks:

The first one is OK! which is the new opening song for the TV show. It's song by Matsumoto Rica who is Satoshi's (Ash's) voice actress. The song is a fast-paced rock song.

The second track is Type: Wild (English version). The Japanese version is on the Rival! single. It's the same song, but in english, and has a different singer.

The third track is the karaoke version of OK! The music, but without the main singer.

The CD also comes with a computer program where you can see the music video of Meowth's Party.

5-0 out of 5 stars An amazing CD
'OK!' is probably my favorite Pokemon song of all time. It is truly amazing, and so are the other goodies on this CD. I prefer the Japanese Pokemon music to the dubbed stuff (that is a little too poppy for my liking), despite the fact I only known a little Japanese. It is truly excellent music. I recommend it for all the fans.

5-0 out of 5 stars 31.7 Megabytes of great Pokemon music!
Despite the small size of this CD, the music that it contains far surpasses the music shown in the US version of the show and soundtracks.

"OK!" was mainly the reason I bought the CD, since I have the Japanese Johto season opening on my computer, and I had always wanted to hear the full version. And I like it alot, especially the few english speaking parts, which provide some inspiration to my fanfic hobbies. And not only is it the first track, it is also the last track as a karaoke version. ... .

"Type: Wild" was a song that I thought I would never want to hear. Ever here the song in MIDI format? It's terrible! But the version on this mini-cd is awesome. This song is the English version, and it should have been the opening (or closing, I forgot) song to the Orange Islands season of Pokemon.

In addition to the two tracks, there is also two Quicktime videos that are included. One is the japanese version of Meowth's Party, and the other is the japanese trailer to "Lord of the Uknown Tower" (In it, some of the scenes they show were cut out in the American version i.e. Mewtwo scene).

Sadly, even if you have Quicktime already installed on your computer, the video won't play until you install the version that is one the CD.

Other than that, the CD is awesome, and would be an awesome addition to one's Japanese CD collection. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars So...How long did they spend on this?
This CD was a mediocre CD. It wasn't one of the best ones in the world, let me tell you THAT. The other Pokemon CDs were much better 'cause they were official! Here are some opinions:

-Can't Hide/Destination Love= 3/10. I hated the lyrics and I didn't like the melody. It was also truly calm and boring.
-Nanalla Nulla= 1/10. I ALSO hated the lyrics to this song. It was quite funny, but I didn't enjoy it all the same.
-Quiet= 2/10. Good song, but not good enough. The singer sounded bored. Therefore, I would be bored.
-Only One= 9/10. GREAT job! This was a wonderful song and I'd recommend you listen to this because even though it's sort of a love song, it isn't so deep and it SOUNDS GOOD!
-Missing You= 0/10. Forget this.
-Miracle= 6/10. Good song, but I still didn't enjoy it much.
-Pokemon= 7/10. This was an o-kay song except I didn't like the way it sounded because it sounded kind of accented and I don't really like that.
-How Will You Feel= 9/10. This was a fantastic song! Even though it was a love song, I still liked it. It would've recieved a full 10 points if it hadn't included some words that made me feel sickened.
-Really Love You= 1/10. No...I don't recommend this one.
-Pikachu= 10/10. Best one on the CD! You should really listen to this. The lyrics are ridiculous, but I loved the way it sounded! Great for all age Pokemon fans!
(SKIP SKIP SKIP)
-Happy= 6/10. Sounds like the ending of a fairy tale. Happily together......

I would recommend this CD to mostly preteens and teens, because it's mostly love music between Ash and Misty, and it's really not for kids who don't understand that kind of thing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hidden romance
I think that this cd is one of the best, probably second in my favorites list even though I havent bot it yet. I espesially love the songs about Ash and Mistys hidden feelings about each other.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not too bad at all
This CD's music is varied, so it could be suited to a wide taste. The songs have generally complex or fast lyrics, but this need not matter as it seems the more you listen to the songs, the more you understand the lyrics. Also, a few of the songs seem to mostly relate to Ash + Misty's hidden romantic feelings for each other, Ash's dream, a certain Pokémon in general or just.... well.... Pokémon!

A fairly good CD, exspecailly for the obbessed Pokémon fan (like me, and I'd actually give it a 4 and a 1/2 Stars).

5-0 out of 5 stars Very well done!
Incorporating a blend of techno and jazz type genres, this CD is one of the best "inspired by" CD's I have heard in quite some time. While some of the songs, might be a bit difficult to understand at first, the up tempo feel of many of the track, make you want to play them again and again.

I would recommend this CD for someone who enjoys music that is "off the beaten path".

4-0 out of 5 stars Hmmm......
I didn't even get the C.D yet! I heard some clips and they were alright. But also really weird... They don't sound all that lively to me. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Myustuu no tanjo- Its worth the wait!
It took me about 2 years or so before i actually could get the real thing but once I did close to a year ago now I was so happy! The Japanese version of the world of Pocket Monsters is very different than what you would expect to see in america and this cd shows it. The Birth of mewtwo (Myustuu No Tanjo) contains one book and 2 cds in one case. The first cd contains 5 chapters to it. It starts from before Mewtwo was even discovered and a bit of a preview of how he came to be. It starts off with Sakaki (Giovanni) narrarating about the discovery of pokemon and eventually it gets to telling the story about the team rocket founder Madam Boss ( Sakaki/Giovanni's mother) talking to her top Team Rocket agent Miyamoto (Jessie/Musashi's mother)who tells madam boss aobut her new discovery, the legendary phantom pokemon mew! Madam boss learns what Miya tells her about mew and Miyamoto is sent to the Andes mountians in South America to chase after mew. Once Miya finds mew she tells it about how she left her daughter to capture it and asks if she can but mew flies away and leaves Miyamoto to be crushed by an avalanche.
In the next chapter people get this confused and think that Miyamoto died from the avalanche but in the second chapter right after where she had gotten hit she comes back and starts talking about trying to find mew. Right after she does the scene switches to a bunch of workers the giovanni had hired to search for artifacts of mew. They eventaully find what they think is a fossil of it and give it to Dr.Fugi to research. Dr. Fugi eventually makes baby mewtwo in the end of the second chapter but also talks about his own daughter who he had cloned. His origional daughter's name was Ai but she had died in a car accedent and Dr. Fugi could not bare to understand the death of his daughter so he decides to make a clone of her named Aitwo. Mewtwo is cloned from mew so this is where his name is born. After the creation of mewtwo in the next two chapters its about him growing up and learning more. Mewtwo begins to understand life and that he is not the same. Ai teaches him about himself, pokemon and the way of life. Mewtwo and Ai become best friends but eventually Ai dies and Mewtwo finds himself alone in life just as an experiment and nothing more. He ends up distroying Dr. Fugi's laboratory and comes to Giovanni/Sakaki's side. After working for a while (chapter 5) with Giovanni and becoming more stronger with his powers he defeats several different pokemon and trainers but also finds that Giovanni wants him for no reason but the fact that he is the most rare and valuable pokemon in the world. Mewtwo distroy's Giovanni's gym and sets out to find his own meaning in life, and if he belongs. This is where Pokemon the first movie comes in. The cd drama may cost a lot of money and may take a while to get to your home but believe me its well worth it even if you can't understand Japanese. Its a lot of fun to listen to. I definately recomend this to any diehard pokemon or anime fan!

5-0 out of 5 stars What the American executives don't want you to know...
I have been searching high and low for this, and finally found it here, at a better price, too. But enough about my quest, now to tackle to topic at hand.

Pocket Monsters Radio Drama "The Birth of Mewtwo" is a very great and involved story. It serves as a prelude to the movie itself, further developing one of the few Pokémon characters to go beyond a meer calling of its name. The narrarator, Sakaki (known to English-speaking audiences as "Giovanni", current head of the Rocket Gang (Team Rocket).), explains not only how and why Mewtwo was created, but explains the existence of Mew and other legendary creatures as well.

The dialogue is spoken rather quickly and the acting is so much better than some of the voice-overs done in the U.S. Exciting background music and sound effects also help the listener imagine the scenarios being told to them. Ai(two) is just adorable.(More about her later.) But, to be able to fully enjoy this deep story, one must understand, or be willing to learn a great deal of Japanese. Or have a translation available. (Which I have.) But for one just learning Japanese, thankfully, the infant Mewtwo speaks slowly enough that I can actually pick up on, understand, and learn a few words.

The book included with this dual CD is filled with beautiful, origonal illustrations, and dialogue from the drama itself. (Beware: the infant Mewtwo is very, very, VERY cute. Not like that's a bad thing... ^_^;)

One of the characters, Dr. Fuji (Dr. Smith, or the Proffessor to English-speaking audiences) came off to me as a sick, twisted man. Clone his dead daughter?! For one, Human cloning is illegal, and two, cloning a child who accidently died is just creepy. *shiver* Though, that didn't stop me from enjoying this radio drama.

The second CD has the one thing I searched for: The soundtrack to the Japanese version of "Mewtwo Strikes Back"! I couldn't get enough of that creepish-sounding Gothic pipe organ music (I dub it: "Mewtwo's Theme") from the moment I heard it. The orchestrated music is wonderful and it's a shame it was taken out for a more idillic, sugar-coated soundtrack sung by popular pop stars, mainly for the sole purpose of America exectutives to cash in on the success of Pokémon even more.

This CD set is a wonderful addition for anyone's Pokémon collection, and a must for Mew and Mewtwo fans. The story is unforgettable and even if you don't understand a word of Japanese, is still interesting to listen to. The soundtrack is beautiful, and the book is just the icing on the cake.

A well-earned, perfect five stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars 53 Dollars?! ... Sheesh.
I have 50 bucks to my name right now and I'm considering buying this ... however, I have the Mp3s downloaded already for free. Why should I buy this? I'm not going to listen to the dialogue since I don't speak japanese.

But I'm buying it because I want the full audio quality that only a CD can bring and with full quality music from the drama ( also used in the TV show, but less orchestrated )its a nice catch. Plus, I can probably rip a few sound effects as long as their not so badly dubbed over that you can't make it out.

I'd recommend that you save your money and search for the download since you can't learn a thing of japanese in the week it'll get there. But, if you know japanese and would love this item its a great buy.

What the Americans would not show
I got this cd set as a gift for Christmas last year, almost nine months ago.
Anyway, when I found it on here, I was estatic. I saw it before on a Japanese website, but unfortuantely it's no longer available now.

Being a very big Mewtwo fan, and fascinated with the Japanese version of Pokemon, I had to have it.

The set comes with two cds. One of them is the radio drama, which I absolutely love. Granted, it is in Japanese. So if you don't know the language, or at least have a translation handy, you'll most likely be in the dark.

The drama goes much deeper into the most misunderstood Pokemon ever, Myuutsu, or Mewtwo. This story reveals a lot that most Pokemon fans in the U.S. doesn't know about him.
He is not the heartless killing machine the Americanized version of Mewtwo Strikes Back portrays him to be.
He is, in fact, very philosohpical on a variety of different subjects. He is also very lost, and very hurt.
How would you like to wake up to a world only to find out that you were created, not born of nature, and that did not want you for other than to be an experiment, some kind of child's plaything?

As a baby, though, he's clueless to all this.
Prepare to be cutified, because he is so adorable, and his voice sounds much like a two-year-olds.
It is within this time frame, he meets his one, and only friend. The daughter of the scientist Dr. Fuji, Ai.
Ai taught him a great many things about the world she knew. The moon, the stars, the sun, and what they were for. She also taught him numbers. Which is extremely cute listening to Mewtwo count.
Ai, or Amber as she is called in the U.S., told him that she was a clone, and he was too.

Sadly, a little later, Ai dies, and this scene makes me cry everytime I hear it. It's just so heartbreaking.

The drama has wonderful background music. If you know the anime very well, you might recognize some of it from there. It also throws a bit of, if not much, light on two characters unknown outside of Japan. Madame Boss, who is the founder of Rocketto Dan, or Team Rocket, and Sakaki's, or Giovanni, mother. And Miyamoto, Musashi's, or Jessie, mother. She was sent on basically a suicide mission to the Andes Mountains to find Mew.

The second cd has the soundtrack of the original Japanese Mewtwo Strikes Back. Let me tell you, it is some of the best music I've ever heard. It's all so haunting, so enchanting. I can't belive the sugary mess they replaced it with. It literally makes my teeth hurt.
My favorite tracks are #s 5, 12, 13, 21, 22, and 25.

A small, but wonderfully illustrated, 64 page book completes the set. Inside there are very beautiful pictures, and the story of the drama.

If you are a Mewtwo fan, a Team Rocket fan, or just a Pokemon fan in general, I wholeheartedly recommend buying this wonderful cd set, The Birth of Mewtwo.

Amazeing
I actually got this about seven months ago, but anyway....
I first saw this on a website based in Japan that sells Japanese Pokemon stuff, and I wanted it so badly, but the site has since gone out of bussiness. I was very interested in Mewtwo's past when I first learned about the Birth of Mewtwo on a Pokemon website. I was so excited to find this two CD set again here. After the other reviews there isn't much else to say. One thing is for sure, you don't need to know Japanese to enjoy this if you're a Mewtwo or Team Rocket fan, but I think to anyone who isn't it might be kind of boring. The story is great, and gives alot more depth to Mewtwo Strikes Back, and Mewtwo himself. Even though they gave us the uncut version of the Origin of Mewtwo, that still doesn't tell the whole story. Being a huge fan of Mewtwo, I absolutly love this set. I've never seen Mewtwo as really being mean, in fact I think hes adorable, even as an adult. My favorite part of the drama was the interaction between baby Mewtwo and Ai(Amber, here in the US) You don't need to know a word of Japanese to find it adorable, and amuseing, when she teaches him numbers.
The book is wonderfull aswell. It has five short chapters to go along with the five parts of the drama, each with beautiful pictures. Overall, this set was a must have for me. Its helpfull for uncovering Mewtwo's past, as a another reveiwer said, and it
was cool to hear the Japanese soundtrack and hear what some of the songs, like Mew's Theame, were like in the Japanese version.
The best part is seeing Mewtwo look more like a Mew. Too cute... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful tale of friendship!

This CD drama is, without a doubt, one of the best Pokemon albums in existence! The songs that Musashi, Kojiro, and Nyasu sing are both beautiful and hilarious, and even if you don't understand a word of Japanese, the sound effects and wonderful illustrations in the book make the story easy to follow. And what a story it is -- it's about what happens to Team Rocket after they blast off one day. It's revealed that Mondo, a younger member of Team Rocket, adores Musashi, Kojiro, and Nyasu, and he helps them out of tight spots whenever they get into trouble. Mondo trades his Metamon (Ditto) to Musashi and Kojiro in exchange for Nyasu, but when disaster strikes, Nyasu proves his courage and love for his friends by coming to their rescue. In the end, Team Rocket learns that no matter how tough they try to act, there's no denying how much they all care about each other and that their friendship makes them true winners, even when they're defeated by jari-tachi. (If only more episodes of Pokemon could be like this! *_*)

One thing to be aware of when purchasing this CD is that SonMay Records makes a bootlegged version that doesn't come with a book. However, when purchasing this item on Amazon.com, you can be assured that it's the official Pikachu Records version complete with illustrated story book (as well as some cute booklets filled with sketches of Musashi, Kojiro, and various other Rocket pics! *_*) and that you're getting your money's worth.

And the Pikachu Records version of this CD is definitely something every TR fan should have! With a wonderful Rocket-centric story, beautiful songs, and a whole book full of gorgeous Team Rocket pictures, what more could you want? ^_^

5-0 out of 5 stars It is an enjoyable CD!
I say that the songs in "It's A White Tomorrow! Rocket Gang" (correct translation) in the most part are enjoyable and sometimes addicting to hear over and over again. My favorite songs are "Rocket Gang! Into Eternity" and "Ocean." The most interesting in the CD album are the three-track radio drama of the same title. I can say that it is the most enjoyable of the two Pocket Monsters radio dramas I own. It is entertaining, full with humorous dialogue, and colorful characters Musashi, Kojiro, Nyarth, and Mondo--the Rocket Gang Deliverer Trainee. What interest me is the relationship between Musashi, Kojiro and Nyarth, as well their fates once they break up.

"It's A White Tomorrow! Rocket Gang" is the best of the two available radio drama (the other is "The Birth of Mewtwo"), so I recommend Pokemon purists and curious dub fans to buy it.

5-0 out of 5 stars I could not believe my ears, really!!
I own several Japanese Pokemon CDs, and this one is my most favorite one. Why? It is all Team Rocket! And as a big Team Rocket fan, this CD was the first one I wanted to own. And I really don't regret buying it. I had read many praises on this CD before I bought it but still I was surprised when I opened this neat package. It contains CD-shaped hardcover story book with lots of Team Rocket pictures with comments in hiragana, katakana (Japanese alphabets) and kanji (Chinese characters) on 48 full-color pages. You can follow the story on the CD much easier when looking into this cute book, but I highly recommend to read translation of this drama into English before you'll listen to it... It helped me a lot to understand what was going on at all. The next thing you find in this package are two booklets with sketches of Musashi and Kojiro. Neat! It is great if you want to learn how to draw them. And the last thing and the reason why you wanted to buy it - great CD with 7 tracks. 4 of 4 songs on this CD are in my Pokemon songs top ten list. They are so cool!

The first one is Roketto Dan yo Eien ni, well known even for non-Japanese Pokemon fans, because the same melody was used for the US (and also German, Spanish and other) version of this song. But, in my opinion, this original version is much much better. I can't speak Japanese so well so I don't know what it's lyrics mean, but the melody of Musashi's, Kojiro's and Nyasu's singing voices is quite different from the US version voices' melody, if you understand what I mean. And the quarreling between Kojiro+Musashi and Nyasu in the middle of the song is so cute too! To shorten it a little bit, it is my most favorite Pokemon song and maybe it is because it is Team Rocket's theme song. The song itself is very beautiful, but it makes me cry from time to time when I listen to it, because I love Team Rocket so much.

From the second to the fourth track you can enjoy Japanese 3-part radio drama. It is something like one Pokemon TV episode (it is about half an hour long, but Satoshi and co. are there only for about 10 seconds, really. It is whole Team Rocket episode. It is fun to listen to it even if you don't understand Japanese, like me, because M+K+N's Japanese voices are both great and hilarious. But I really recommend to read the English translation. It is so so funny!

The fifth track is Rakki Rakki, Kojiro's theme song. Quite weird at first, but I like it now. It has to be funny if you understand Japanese because of the high number of Pokemon puns.

The next two tracks are songs which you can't find on any other Pokemon CD or in any episode. They are bonus tracks made exclusively for this Team Rocket CD, what is quite funny, because they have nothing common with Team Rocket. The first one is Pokemon Master e no Michi. Its melody is Pokemon Game Boy Game title screen melody. If you own Red, Blue or Yellow version of this game, you surely remember this melody. It is really cool and I liked it from the first time. And when I heard the version with lyrics on this CD, duet sung by man and woman, I could not believe my ears. This song was so beautiful!! It would be nice opening song for the anime, I think. Maybe even better than Mezase Pokemon Master.

And the last track on this great CD, song called Umi, is another melody converted from Game Boy Pokemon game, with lyrics of course. It is melody played whenever you use surf Pokemon power in the game. Quite boring melody, in my opinion, but on this CD it is very well done. It is probably because it is sung by a great singer, some woman with the sweetest voice (I mean it in a good way)!

To sum it up: It's a White Tomorrow! is very very very well done CD. If you are Team Rocket fan, you just have to buy it. If you are Pokemon fan and are interested in anything Japanese, buy it. If you want something neat and funny, buy it. If you learn Japanese, like me, buy it. If you like j-pop, buy it. The only reason why do not buy this CD, that comes on my mind, is that for younger kids it can be quite boring listen to something for 30 minutes and don't understand to it. And buing it only for 4 songs it is quite expensive. I can thin of another reason but if you hate Team Rocket or Pokemon, why have you read my review at all?

Team Rocket Forever! And Pokemon anime and it's great Japanese songs too! ^_^ Thank you for reading my long and exhausting (for both sides) review. I hope you enjoyed it and that it helped you to decide.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!!
This CD is a must-have for any Team Rocket fan! The CD Drama is really cool, you should find a translation when you listen to it though so you know what is going on. This CD also features the songs Lucky Lucky, Umi, Through Eternity(Pokémon Elite Four Theme), and Rocketto Dan Yo Eian Ni, Team Rocket's official theme song! The book is cool too, get it now!

5-0 out of 5 stars Something dubbers could never mess up
This is great. Although it's confusing unless you know Japanese, there's a book with pictures, that I understood. The CD drama had sound effects aswell to guide you through it.
It has tracks 'Roketto Dan Yo Eien Ni', 'through eternity', 'umi' and 'Lucky Lucky'. (Those are the ones I remember!)
Trust me, it's money well spent and you'll probably spend time admiring the the booklets with pictures of Musashi, Kojiro and Nyasu in before listening to the CD. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars another excellent CD
I got this CD because I enjoyed the first Pokemon Best Collection CD, and I found this one to be MUCH more enjoyable (even though there are no promotional cards in this one...):

1) OK!: Closer to true rock-and-roll than any other song on either Best Collections. This the "Johto" (3rd season) opening credits song for the TV show, sung by the voice actress for Satoshi (Ash). I like this track even though I tend to favor orchestral songs.

2) Can You Say Pokemon? Neo: Even weirder than the first one, and this time there is no Raymond, much to my dismay. (Though I did like what they did with the 26 Unown / An'non.)

3) Meowth's Party: Very weird song, but rather catchy, especially at the beginning. This is one of the numerous closing credits songs for the TV show.

4) To Go Exploring: Sung by Pokemon Kids. A rather fun song, similar to "Pika Pika In the Middle of Chu" from the other Best Collection CD, only a little more staccato (and with no Professor Oak singing, thank goodness). I guess you could call it a "cute" song. This song was originally from the 2nd movie's Pikachu short.

5) Type Wild: My absolute favorite song from this CD. It's a closing credits song from the TV show, sung by Satoshi. It's milder than "OK!" and "Rival," other Satoshi's rock songs, yet still wild enough to be fun. (It certainly has more harmonica.) I LOVE singing this.

6) Riding Lapras: Calypso-oid closing credits song, sung by Kasumi (Misty). Solid, laid-back song.

7) Brock's Paradise: Closing credits song sung by Takeshi (Brock). Its style reminds me of a samba, and the chorus is rather catchy.

8) Flying Pokemon Kids: This is probably my second most favorite song on this CD. It's sung by the group Pokemon Kids, but unlike all the other songs they sing, there are very little weird synth instruments, making it more enjoyable than the others. (And the English is actually pronounced correctly!) Fun to sing. This was from the 2nd film's Pikachu short.

9) toi et moi: I don't listen to this song because of the bad grammar and incorrectly pronounced English at the beginning. Listening to it once was good for laughs, but since the first time I've never actually been able to make it all the way through. Ending song from the Lugia movie.

10) The Nerve-Racking Pokemon Relay: A really fast tongue-twister about which Pokemon relays to which. Though the lyrics are faster than any other Japanese song I've heard (and you thought "Aiming to be Pokemon Master" and "Type: Wild" were fast!), the music is nice. Ending song from the TV show.

11) Pichu Pika Swing: A jazzy piano + other instruments song from the Pikachu and Pichu short. If the singing was less all over the place I'd like it more, but the music is okay.

12) The Day a Rainbow is Born: From the Entei movie. This is a wonderful song...until the main refrain, when the singer sounds strained and forced, causing the song to lose some of its appeal. Otherwise, a marvelous song.

13) (The) Rival(s): Good Satoshi rock song, second only to "Type: Wild." The only thing that bugs me is the background singers, but the rest of the song is fun. It's a little slower paced than the other Satoshi songs on the CD so it's much easier to learn to sing. This was the Orange Islands opening credits song on the TV show.

14) We, the Pichu Pichu Brothers: Very cute song: honky-tonk piano with Pichu interjections. A blast to sing.

15) Frendship Anniversary: Ending song from Pikachu and Pichu. I generally pay more attention to the other songs on this CD, so I really don't have that much to say about it except that this song lacks spark to keep my interest, though I can't put my finger on why.

16) To My Best Friend: Another TV closing credits song. This one is nice, more traditional and less weird.

OVERALL GRADE: I'd give it an A in terms of quality of music. Like the previous Best Collecion, I gave it 5 stars because it provides a wide range of Pokemon music on a very full CD, as opposed to a limited range of music (like 3 singles and a few of their karaokes) on a semi-full CD. It is much better than its predecessor because it has music that scales a larger frame of time than the first and is more varied. I would highly recommend it, especially if you haven't purchased any Japanese Pokemon music before or never will again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another great Japanese Pokemon CD
Like the earlier Sound Anime Collection CD from Japan, this CD features lots of Pokemon music from the Japanese series, but this time all the tracks are vocal songs instead of just background music.

Track 1 is OK! which is the Japanese theme to the third Season, their equivalent of the US Johto Journies song. Track 7 is Takeshi no Paradise" or "Brock`s Paradise" in English, in which he sings about his love for girls - a strange but also funny track. Some of the other songs are "Type WILD!" (a J-pop song sung in Japanese by Satoshi`s voice actress), "The Rivals!", and "Toi Et Moi" (simply "You and Me") which was the ending theme to Revelation Lugia. This is a good track, but the leap from gentle strings at the beginning to thumping techno beats takes some getting used to for me.

Another track that I like is Track 14, Bokura Pichu Burazaazu (We Are The Pichu Brothers), used in the 3rd Movie short in Japan - it has a good tune complete with plinky plonky piano and Pokemon noises. The last track is called "Boku no Best Friend", a gentle ballad in which Satoshi sings an ode to Pikachu (again). If you ever needed proof that Satoshi/Ash is biased towards Pikachu in the American and Japanese series, this is it!

Overall, despite the language barriers, this is a great CD - recommended for any Pokemon music fan!

5-0 out of 5 stars Pokemon Besuto Korekushon 2
Well, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I only got this CD for OK!, Raibaru! and Pokemon Ieru ka NEO? but I loved the other songs. I was especially impressed with the clear case which came with it. I now keep Pokemon Besuto Korekushon (1 & 2) and Maboroshi no Pokemon : Rugia Bakudan CD in it. I highly suggest that you buy this CD.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best!!
This is one of my favorite cd's that i have!! (so far...) my favorite song on this is Takeshi no parsdise (#7) because well i LOVE TAKESHI!!!!!!! i like alot of the songs on it also. the one that weirded me out was Pokemon Ieru ka Neo? which is the pokŽrap of the GS pkmn. Imakuni? is freaky and can't sing let alone rap, but that's what makes it hilarious! most of the songs i have or have heard and so my reaction was " oh i know this song!" and i was really surprised and happy. i wanted to find Takeshi no Paradise somehwere besides the computer (ahem)..... ok! enough about my love for Takeshi/Brock...-_-** the song that really was enjoyable was PokŽmon HaraHara relay which i have NEVER heard ANYONE speak Japanese that fast!! well actually......oh never mind..... BUY THIS CD!!!!! IT IS WORTH THE MONEY plus it comes with this neat little bag! i made use of it by putting my CD player in it! its really handy and cute! being a pkmn fan since 1997 (family went to japan brought something back....) and still at it! i haven't seen anything like this! this CD IS A MUST HAVE!!!!!!! U GOT MY WORD!!!!!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars A great collection for any Pokemon music fan
Another nice collection of Japanese Pokemon Music. Included with the CD is a clear soft vinyl CD carrying case with a black strap. One or two CD jewel cases would fit.

Tankentai wo Tsukurou, 5. Type: Wild, 6. Lapras ni Notte, 7. Takeshi no Paradise, 8. Soratobu Pokemon Kids, 9. toi et moi, 10. Pokemon Harahara Relay, 11. Pichu-Pika Swing, 12.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pokemon World CD - Awesome single!
I really can't see why some of you are putting this cd down. It's great. If your a true anime fan and collect anime cd's, then you'll know that this is more of a single than a full cd soundtrack. Anime single cd's have 4 to 5 songs (sometimes only 2) and at least 2 of those songs are instrumental. Like the person a few reviews down, I totally agree with them, it's a single. So don't cap on it just because it has 3 songs, you should be happy that WB is releasing the english version soundtracks.

The Pokemon World is a great opening theme song, and, in my opinion is alot better than the first opening theme. Pikachu's Winter Vacation is another cute little song and is my favorite. And with the instrumental version of Pikachu's Winter Vactation, I find myself singing along all day. So if your a Pokemon fan or an anime fan, you'll like this cd.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a bad addition to the Pokémon CDs...
This CD only features three tracks, but before you begin moaning, just stop right there. Anyone familiar with animé knows that a lot of CDs are small "mini-CDs" often featuring only three or four tracks, at a far lower price, just like this CD.

The first of these songs is the full version of the second Pokémon opening theme in the US - "Pokémon World". I like this song, and I prefer it to the first one (found on 2BA Master), because I've heard the first one SO many times it's become somewhat boring...

The second song on this is the US version of "Pikachu's Winter Vacation", which was a short cartoon in Japan. This OVA has not yet been dubbed, but this song has been made. It's quite similar to the original, although it is very short (less than two minutes), and it isn't really THAT good. Not compared to the quality of 2BA Master, anyway.

The third and final track is an Instrumental version of "Pikachu's Winter Vacation". I love karaoke (most of the Japanese Pocket Monsters songs have a karaoke version so you can sing along), but this Instrumental version actually adds new instruments to the song, which spoils it. A karaoke version should just remove the words. Still, it's quite good fun to sing along to.

Overall, this is a good CD to own if you like Pokémon, as the first track makes up the value. I got this free with the ECD version of 2BA Master, so you might want to get them together.

Also, some free stuff for your computer is included on this CD. The cut-down video of Pokémon World (as seen at the start of the animé series two) is present, as is a Screen Saver and various backgrounds. However, this stuff isn't really that well done, and was basically just thrown on at the last minute.

If you are a fan of Pokémon, get this CD....

3-0 out of 5 stars Ah, so this is what a single is.
Luckily this CD's price isn't as high as a normal CD's.
With only 3 songs on it(and some other trivial stuff), the Pokemon World CD isn't something you'll listen to often. But with the fact that they included the Pikachu's Winter Vacation(an EXTREMELY hard to find video) song on there, I HAD to get it. They also have an instrumental version of the song, with a nice saxophone solo.
The Pokemon World song is on the CD too. In my opinion, this is the worst Pokemon theme song ever produced by 4Kids. The lyrics even seem like a big commercial! Its obvious that the Japanese version of the season two theme is far superior.
Either way, you can get this CD for cheap from just about anywhere, and that'd make sense, since this only has 3 songs(One being almost unlistenable). And if you're interested in hearing the theme song of the Pokemon video you've most likely never seen before, then you should get this CD. The song's not half-bad either.

1-0 out of 5 stars this blows
I relly hated this CD. THREE SONGS. Release some more with it please. Thank YOU

4-0 out of 5 stars What in the Poke' World?
This CD is aucutally one of the best anime CDs out there. The first track, Poke'mon World, includes the full song with exclusive lyrics. Although a good song, most of the words end in the first 1:30 and the song is 3:18. The second track, Pikachu's Winter Vacation, is very catchy, but very short. Rip off? No, although the only thing Poke'mon about this song is in the chorus when they say, "Pikachu's Vaction" twice. The third track, insrumental version of Winter Vacation, is very good, adding a saxaphone solo in there instead of lyrics which aucutally enhances the enjoyment. There's also the Enchanced CD stuff which includes the music video of Poke'mon World(the same one off of the Orange Island episodes), a cool screensaver(lots of movement and cool pics), and 4 backgrounds(2 are the same except with a different background, one with Pikachu, and the other the title with Charmander's evolutions). All in all, this CD is pretty cool... if you like Poke'mon(or cheap CDs)! ... Read more
