|ポケモン シンフォニック メドレー|
| AG OP 3
| Pikachu Records
|Medley of 6 songs: Advance Adventure, Challenger!!, Ready Go!, Polka O Dolka, Because the Sky is There, and Aim to Be a Pokémon Master|
A 5:24 version entitled Pokémon Symphonic Orchestra was included as a bonus track on the Battle Frontier single (ZMCP-2302), however, it was composed of Advance Adventure, Challenger!!, Smile, Because the Sky is There and Polka O Dolka. It was not as well received by fans of the 1:30 Pokémon Symphonic Medley.
A "sequel" entitled Pokémon Symphonic Medley 2 was included on the The Greatest - Everyday! single, composed of The Greatest - Everyday!, Message of the Wind, Together, Get Fired Up, Spiky-eared Pichu!, Surely Tomorrow, and High Touch!
Regirock, Regice, and Registeel burst out of the ground in a dark stadium. Ash orders his Pokémon, Corphish, Torkoal, Grovyle, Swellow, and Pikachu, to attack. Pikachu uses Quick Attack on Registeel, Swellow hits Regice, and Regirock shoots a beam near Ash. However, he appears confident.
A large group of Pokémon stand on a vast hillside. Celebi flies past. Dozens of Pokémon swim through the sea, and Lugia flies past. Even more Pokémon run across a grassy hill while others fly through the air.
Mewtwo's silhouette is seen in the entrance to a dark alleyway. He jumps into the air, out of sight.
Ash sits alone in a playground. It is raining. He has a disappointed look on his face. Suddenly, he looks up, and Pikachu smiles at him. Then May, Max, and Brock also smile. Pikachu jumps into Ash's arms and May wipes away a tear.
Groudon and Kyogre attack each other while Mew and Jirachi fly past. Meanwhile, Raikou, Entei, and Suicune run up a series of pillars while Latias and Latios fly past. Rayquaza shoots a beam while flying through smoke caused by Groudon and Kyogre's battle. Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres fly up the side of some ruins; Ash and Pikachu are standing at the top. They turn to watch the birds fly away. Deoxys, in its Normal form, shoots past, turning into its Speed form. It and the birds fly through the night sky, and Ho-Oh joins them.
A still shot of Ash, May, Brock, Max, and Pikachu is shown.

| ユウキリンリン ゲンキハツラツ
ユメは いつか ホントになるって
| Full of courage, full of energy|
So interesting, so triumphant
Dreams will someday become reality
Though someone sang that...
Like a bud that will someday bloom
My dream will come true
- Even though the silhouette in the alleyway is most likely Mewtwo, Pokémon.com erroneously stated that the shadowy Pokémon figure was the Red Lightning Scizor from Curbing the Crimson Tide, which had not aired yet at that time.
- This is the only Japanese opening that does not feature on-screen lyrics in any instance.
- Pokémon Symphonic Medley 2 was used both in the end of the Sinnoh Grand Festival and the beginning of the Lily of the Valley Conference.
