Always Pokémon is the Italian opening theme to the third season of the Italian-language Pokémon dub. It was used from EP117 to EP157. In subsequent airings, it is also used from EP106 to EP116.

The opening animation featured footage from the third English opening, Pokémon Johto.

The original, two-minute footage of this opening was not used in later airings as Mediaset, the company in charge of the Italian dub at the time, lost it. In Mediaset reruns of these episodes, footage from Beyond the Skies of the Adventure and a shorter, one-minute version of the music of Always Pokémon are used.

It is sung by Giorgio Vanni and Cristina D'Avena, making it the first Pokémon opening in the world to feature a duet. The first Japanese opening to feature a duet was High Touch!, while the first one in English was Black and White.

Italian English
You gotta catch 'em all, oh!
You gotta catch 'em all, oh!
You gotta catch 'em all, always Pokémon!

Il mondo è grande, grande, ma,
chi viaggia poi cammina
col cuore un po' più in là,
scoprendo cos'è la liberta, libertà!

La forza della volontà, (volontà!)
ti porta dove va
la tua curiosità,
muovendoti con agilità!

Per noi, (per noi!)
l'avventura non finisce mai!
Se ci segui ti divertirai!
Dai, partiamo tutti insieme,
per un grande Pokémon tour! (You gotta catch 'em all!)

Gira, gira il mondo
Gira la tua Sfera
quando hai già lanciato
la tua Poké Ball!

Gira, gira il mondo
Pianta la bandiera
dove sei arrivato
coi tuoi amici Pokémon!

Gira, gira il mondo (gira il mondo!)
Gira la tua Sfera
Grida a perdifiato:
"Gotta catch 'em all!"
Gira la tua Sfera!
Yes, you gotta catch 'em all!
(catch, catch, you gotta catch 'em all!)

Lancia la tua Sfera Poké,
e l'avventura non finirà!
Con ogni lancio sei
più forte perché
puoi catturare nuovi Pokémon!

(You gotta catch 'em all!)

Gira, gira il mondo
Pianta la bandiera
dove sei arrivato
coi tuoi amici Pokémon!

Gira, gira il mondo (gira il mondo!)
Gira la tua Sfera
Grida a perdifiato:
"Gotta catch 'em all!"
Gira la tua Sfera!
Yes, you gotta catch 'em all!
(catch, catch, you gotta catch 'em all!)

You gotta catch 'em all, oh!
You gotta catch 'em all, oh!
You gotta catch 'em all, always Pokémon!
You gotta catch 'em all, oh!
You gotta catch 'em all, oh!
You gotta catch 'em all, always Pokémon!

The world is big, big, but
he who travels with the heart
then walks a little further on
finding out what is freedom, freedom!

The power of will, (will!)
takes you where
your curiosity goes,
moving with agility!

For us, (for us!)
the adventure never ends!
If you follow us, you'll have fun!
Come on, let's set out all together,
for a great Pokémon tour! (You gotta catch 'em all!)

Round and round the world
Spin your Ball
when you've already thrown
your Poké Ball!

Round and round the world
Raise your flag
where you've arrived
with your Pokémon friends!

Round and round the world (round the world!)
Spin your Ball
Shout aloud:
"Gotta catch 'em all!"
Spin your Ball!
Yes, you gotta catch 'em all!
(catch, catch, you gotta catch 'em all!)

Throw your Poké Ball,
and the adventure won't end!
With every journey you're
stronger because
you can catch new Pokémon!

(You gotta catch 'em all!)

Round and round the world
Raise your flag
where you've arrived
with your Pokémon friends!

Round and round the world (round the world!)
Spin your Ball
Shout aloud:
