Lyrics

TV size

Japanese English
青く 晴れ渡る空に 輝く瞳
さあ 胸を張れ 歩きだせ 夢のはじまり

喜び 悲しみを
明日への力にして

何度でも 何度でも
羽ばたける 強さを信じて
描こう あの空いっぱいに
七色アーチ

ゆっくりと 一歩でも
きっと景色は 変わるはずさ
さあ 行こう
君の未来へ
虹の向こうへ
The eyes sparkling with the cleared-up blue sky
Come on, puff up your chest and take a big step forward. It's the beginning of a dream.
Turn your joys and sorrows into
The power for tomorrow

No matter how many times, no matter how many times
Just believe that we have the strength to flap up and fly
Let's sketch together the seven-colored arch
In that great sky

Even if we slowly take one step
The scenery will indeed change
Come on, let's go
To your future
To the other side of the rainbow

雨上がり 風が運ぶ 草、土の匂い
「生きてる」と 歌っているよ 今日がはじまる

大切な 思い出は
永遠に 笑ってる

どこまでも どこまでも
続く青い空を 見上げて
進もう 誰よりも眩しく
七色アーチ

もし君が つまづいて
挫けそうになった時でも
頑張る その背中をそっと
誰かが見ている

ゆっくりと 一歩でも
きっと景色は 変わるはずさ

さあ 行こう
いっぱいの「希望」と「夢」を抱えて
君の未来へ…
虹の向こうへ
The eyes sparkling with the cleared-up blue sky
Come on, puff up your chest and take a big step forward. It's the beginning of a dream.

Turn your joys and sorrows into
The power for tomorrow

No matter how many times, no matter how many times
Just believe that we have the strength to flap up and fly
Let's sketch together the seven-colored arch
In that great sky

The scents of grass and earth carried upon the wind after the rain
Are singing "I am alive". Today is beginning.

Precious memories will always
Be smiling eternally

Look up to the blue sky
That continues on endlessly, endlessly
Head on, more dazzling than anyone
The seven-colored arch

Even if you stumble
Even when you are almost crushed
Your back showing your perseverance
Is being silently watched by someone

Even if we slowly take one step
The scenery will indeed change

Come on, let's go
Carry those dreams and wishes
To your future
To the other side of the rainbow

Trivia

Boldore's red spine
  • Whimsicott, Petilil and Rufflet all appear in this ending, yet none of these Pokémon had made TV episode debut before it was replaced (Whimsicott and Petilil debuted a week after this ending was changed in BW080, while Rufflet wouldn't make its first appearance in an episode until BW095 which aired after this ending was replaced).
  • It is technically impossible for Ash to have all of his Pokémon with him at once, however, the opening has Ash sitting with all of his Unova Pokémon.
  • Whimsicott is the only evolved wild Pokémon present.

Errors

  • During the close up of shot of Ash's Pokémon, his Boldore has a red spine instead of blue. However, this was corrected in BW064.
