Pokérap GS

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

Pokérap GS was the second Pokérap, made for 99 of the 100 Generation II Pokémon (the exception being Celebi). It is available on the Totally Pokémon CD, as well as the Pokémon X CD. It was one of the four ringtones available on the Pokémon Mobile service.

The song was used for the opening theme of Pokémon Chronicles everywhere outside of the United States, where the Pokémon Chronicles theme was used for all episodes except Part One of The Legend of Thunder! However, this version of the opening was still present in all Toonami Jetstream airings of the series.

The full version of the Pokérap was aired once on Kids' WB! when Hot Matches! first premiered. The full version can be found on the Spell of the Unown DVD as a bonus.

Trivia

Porygon2 in the Pokérap GS
  • The Pokérap GS marks the only appearance of Porygon2 in the anime before the fifteenth movie.
  • While Celebi was omitted, the space where the lyrics say "Pokémon!" instead of something rhyming with Togepi implies this is where it was meant to be placed.
  • If one was to rearrange the Pokérap so all the Pokémon are in National Pokédex order, Remoraid would remain in its position in the song.

Errors

  • Tyrogue is spelled as Tyrouge.
