Battle Cry - (Stand Up!) is the opening theme song for the English dub of Pokémon Diamond & Pearl: Galactic Battles. It was used from Get Your Rotom Running! to Gotta Get a Gible!. It was originally made up of various episode clips. Starting with the airing of The Lonely Snover!, a new version featuring scenes from High Touch! and Pillars of Friendship! began airing. An extended version of the song was used as the opening theme to Arceus and the Jewel of Life.

Lyrics

TV version

Sometimes it's hard to know,
Which way you're supposed to go.
But deep inside, you know you're strong.
If you follow your heart, you can't be wrong.

Stand up!
(Stand up!)
For what is right.
Be brave!
Get ready to fight.
Hold on!
(Hold on!)
We're friends for life.
And if we come, together as one,
Complete the quest, that we've begun,
We will win the battle!
Galactic Battles! Pokémon!

Movie version

Sometimes it's hard to know,
Which way you're supposed to go.
But deep inside, you know you're strong.
If you follow your heart, you can't be wrong.

Sometimes it's hard to see,
Just what's your destiny.
But when you find the path that's true,
You'll know that's the one for you.

Stand up!
(Stand up!)
For what is right.
Be brave!
(Be brave!)
Get ready to fight!
Hold on!
(Hold on!)
We're friends for life.
And if we come, together as one,
Complete the quest, that we've begun,
We will win the battle!
Pokémon!

Woo-hoo!

The time is now, the game's begun!
Together we will fight as one!
Each of us, in our own way,
Can make this world a better place.

Stand up!
(Stand up!)
For what is right.
Be brave!
(Be brave!)
Get ready to fight!
Hold on!
(Hold on!)
We're friends for life.
And if we come together as one,
Complete the quest, that we've begun,
We will win the battle!
Pokémon!

Just when it seems that you are lost and all alone,
You will find the courage and the strength to carry on.
And if you fall along the way,
Have the faith you'll be okay.
'Cause your friends are there for you,
Reachin' out to pull you through.

Stand up!
(Stand up!)
For what is right.
Be brave!
(Be brave!)
Get ready to fight!
Hold on!
(Hold on!)
We're friends for life.
And if we come together as one,
Complete the quest, that we've begun,
We will win the battle!
Pokémon!
