Pokémon World is the opening theme to the second season of the English-language Pokémon dub, Pokémon: Adventures in the Orange Islands. It was used from The Lost Lapras to The Rivalry Revival. It was written by John Loeffler and John Siegler and was sung by Russell Velázquez. The footage used in the opening is from the second Japanese opening, The Rivals.

A version sung by Youngstown and Nobody's Angel was the opening theme to the second Pokémon movie, The Power of One, and appeared on the movie's soundtrack, Pokémon the Movie 2000. It also was one of the few English Pokémon songs to get its own official single.

A non-lyrical version is featured in the game Pokémon Puzzle League as the theme song for Gary Oak.

Lyrics

TV version

So you wanna be the Master of
Pokémon!
Do you have the skills to be
Number one!?

I wanna take the ultimate step
Find the courage to be bold (Pokémon)
To risk it all and not forget
The lessons that I hold
I wanna go where no one's been
Far beyond the crowd (Pokémon)
Learn the way to take command
Use the power that's in my hand
Oh hey!

We all live in a Pokémon world
(Po-ké-mon)
I wanna be the greatest Master of them all!
(Greatest Master)
We all live in a Pokémon world
(Po-ké-mon)
Put myself to the test
To be better than all the rest
Ungh!

So you wanna be the Master of
Pokémon!
Do you have the skills to be
Number one!?
We all live in a Pokémon world
(Po-ké-mon)
I wanna be the greatest Master of them all!

Trivia

  • This is the first English theme with digital animation, the portion in question being the power display by Misty's Staryu, Ash's Snorlax, and Ash's Charizard. The first fully digitally animated theme was this song's successor, "Pokémon Johto".
  • The movie version of this song features a duet making it the first dub opening to feature a duet, while the opening for the TV series was still solo. An opening duet for the TV series would not happen until High Touch! in the original and Black and White in the dub.
