Lyrics

TV version

It's the next chapter, the ultimate goal
Ready for battle, brave and bold
I know we're gonna make it
We will find a way

Oh-oh
We've come so far
We fought so hard to get where we are
Oh-oh
We belong together
It's always you and me
Pokémon!

Movie version

It's the next chapter, the ultimate goal
Ready for battle, brave and bold
I know we're gonna make it
We will save the day

One story ends and another begins
We can never do it without our friends
When we stand united
We will find a way

Oh-oh
We've come so far
We fought so hard to get where we are
Oh-oh
We've found our destiny
Oh-oh
We belong together
We are best friends forever
It's always you and me

You give me the courage, that sets me free
I count on you, you're always there for me
No matter where this road takes us,
By your side is where I wanna be

Oh-oh
We've come so far
We fought so hard to get where we are
Oh-oh
We've found our destiny
Oh-oh
We belong together
We are best friends forever
It's always you and me
Pokémon!

Oh-oh
We belong together
We are best friends forever
It's always you and me
(Always you and me)
Pokémon!

Trivia

  • Currently, this English opening has the record for having the most distinct versions.
  • For unknown reasons, Cartoon Network in the United States used the second version of the opening instead of the third version in several episodes of the Decolore Islands arc: To Catch a Rotom! through The Path That Leads to Goodbye!, as well as Capacia Island UFO! and A Pokémon of a Different Color!. This error also occurred in the Australian airings by Toasted TV.
    • For unknown reasons, Toasted TV in Australia used the second version of the opening instead of the first version for the episodes BW098 to BW109.
    • For unknown reasons, Cartoon Network Latin America uses the first version for the opening up until BW130 onwards, when the opening switches to the third version.
  • The Finnish version of this song is a duet between Petrus Kähkönen, Cilan's voice actor, and Saara Aalto, Iris' voice actor.
  • The Russian version of this song is a duet between Evgenii Valtz, James's voice actor, and Aset Samrailova.
