Opening animation spoilers





A kid from Pallet Town with a brand new world to see
I don't know what's ahead but it won't get the best of me
There's so much to learn and battles to be won
I've advanced so far but still there's always more to come

Take a step and I'm on my way...
Gonna start all over again

I wanna be a Hero! (Hero!)
Pokémon: Advanced!
(I'm on my way!)
I wanna be a Hero! (Hero!)
Give me just one chance...
And the future will decide...
If there's a hero buried deep inside...
I wanna be a Hero!
