Japanese English
はじめての場所
はじめての風のにおい mm...
はじめてじゃないのは
このドキドキ!
新品のこの地図
クシャクシャになるころ おれたち
ねぇ どこまで進んでるかな?

ここだけの話
不安ひとつふたつみっつ
でも 楽しみは数えきれない!

耳をすませば なつかしい声
未来からの声
いつも祈っててくれてる
「きみは だいじょうぶ!
なぜか だいじょうぶ!
みんな だいじょうぶ!」

Yeah‐he‐he‐hey 歩き出そう!
Yeah‐he‐he‐hey 走っちゃおうか?
ドキドキは すぐに
ウズウズに!
いてもたっても いられないぜ!
At a place for the first time
The smell of the wind for the first time, mm...
But what isn't for the first time
Is this throbbing of my heart!
When this brand-new map
Gets all crumpled
Hey, I wonder how far we should go?

Keep this between us;
I have one or two or three worries
But there are countless things I'm looking forward to!

If I listen closely, I hear a nostalgic voice
A voice from the future
It's always praying for me
"You'll be all right!
Somehow it'll be all right!
Everyone will be all right!"

Yeah-he-he-hey, let's start walking!
Yeah-he-he-hey, should we run?
The throbbing of my heart instantly changes
To an itching desire!
There's just no way I can calm down!

ここだけの話
不安ひとつふたつみっつ
でも 楽しみは数えきれない!

おだやかな朝
おだやかな時の流れ mm...
おだやかじゃないのは
このスグアト!
予想外トラブル
行く手をふさがれた おれたち
もう どうすりゃいいのさ?

なさけない話
ヒザはふるえ汗はたらり
でも 戻るとか考えられない!

耳をすませば なつかしい声
未来からの声
いつも祈っててくれてる
「きみは だいじょうぶ!
なぜか だいじょうぶ!
みんな だいじょうぶ!」

Yeah‐he‐he‐hey 歩き出そう!
Yeah‐he‐he‐hey 走っちゃおうか?
ドキドキは すぐに
ウズウズに!
いてもたっても いられないぜ!

終わらない道
終わらない出会いの旅 mm...
終わってほしいのは
このドギマギ!
それでもなんとなく
気づいているのかな おれたち
そう 友だちのはじまり!

ありがちな話
最初どこか作り笑い・・・・・・
でも すぐホントの笑顔でいっぱい!

風よ運んで おれのこの声
おれのこの想い
はるかな町のあのひとに
「おれは だいじょうぶ!
めっちゃ だいじょうぶ!
1人じゃないから 仲間がいるから だいじょうぶ!」

Yeah‐he‐he‐hey 歩き出そう!
Yeah‐he‐he‐hey 走っちゃおうか?
Yeah‐he‐he‐hey めざすものは
Yeah‐he‐he‐hey ずっと輝く!
ドキドキは すぐに
トキメキに!
いてもたっても いられないぜ!
At a place for the first time
The smell of the wind for the first time, mm...
But what isn't for the first time
Is this throbbing of my heart!
When this brand-new map
Gets all crumpled
Hey, I wonder how far we should go?

Keep this between us;
I have one or two or three worries
But there are countless things I'm looking forward to!

A calm morning
The calm flow of time, mm...
But what isn't calm
Is what comes right after this!
When our path has been cut off
By some unexpected trouble
Well, now what should we do?

It's pretty pitiful to say
My knees are shaking, I'm dripping with sweat
But no way am I thinking of going back!

If I listen closely, I hear a nostalgic voice
A voice from the future
It's always praying for me
"You'll be all right!
Somehow it'll be all right!
Everyone will be all right!"

Yeah-he-he-hey, let's start walking!
Yeah-he-he-hey, should we run?
The throbbing of my heart instantly changes
To an itching desire!
There's just no way I can calm down!

An endless road
A journey of endless encounters, mm...
But what I want to have end
Is this flurrying anxiety!
Even so, I wonder
If we've somehow realized
That's right, it's the beginning of a friendship!

This is frequently said
At first was a forced smile somewhere......
But soon it will be full of genuine smiles!

Wind, carry my voice
Carry my feelings
To that person in a distant town
"I'll be all right!
I'll be totally all right!
I'm not alone, I have my friends, so I'll be all right!

Yeah-he-he-hey, let's start walking!
Yeah-he-he-hey, should we run?
Yeah-he-he-hey, what we're aiming for
Yeah-he-he-hey, is always shining!
The throbbing of my heart instantly changes
To a pounding excitement!
There's just no way I can calm down!

Trivia

  • This is the only opening to the Pokémon anime to not feature any human characters.
    • This is also the only opening not to feature Meowth.
  • Pokémon silhouettes are revealed in the episode following their debut in the series.
  • This is the first opening to be composed completely of CGI.
  • Reshiram is the only Pokémon who has a white silhouette. However, it is given a black silhouette when it appears at the end.
  • The lyrics in this opening are black and have white borders. This is the only opening in which this happens, as the other lyrics are white with black borders.
  • Among the first opening songs of all series, this is the only one not to use terms of the franchise (location names, moves, etc.).
  • Best Wishes! was used consistently as the opening song across 84 episodes with no remixes, more than any other opening.
  • This is the first opening since Spurt! not to have any remixes.

Variants

In the first episode, all Pokémon (except Pikachu) were shown in silhouettes. Whenever a Pokémon made its debut, its silhouette was transformed into its revealed form in the episode following their debut in the series. Every episode after that showed that Pokémon without any transformation. By BW014, all the silhouetted Pokémon had been unveiled.
