A version with string quartet & piano accompaniment is included on the GLORY DAY single, as well as a piano instrumental version.

Smile (Japanese: スマイル lit. Sumairu) is the third ending theme song of the Japanese Advanced Generation Pokémon anime series, the 16th ending overall, and the first ending track that was not composed by Hirokazu Tanaka.

It debuted in AG052, and a second cut with different lyrics debuted in AG062. It was replaced by Full of Summer!! in AG083, but the second cut was used afterwards from AG092 to AG098.

Smile is notable in that it was the first ending sequence to be updated whenever one of the main characters caught or evolved one of their Pokémon. Updating opening and ending sequences with team changes is now standard practice in the anime.

Lyrics

Japanese English
こらえきれずに 今流した
君の涙が光って
それでも変わらずに
気ままな風は胸を揺さぶるよ

頑張ることは大切だけど
正直な君の弱さを
隠すためだけにある
強さなら なくていいから

今は見えなくても
確かに君の胸の中にある
何かを信じ抜く強さは
君の笑顔を待ってる

ひとはみな誰もが 今日をさまよう
ちいさな旅人
時には迷い 時にははぐれ
明日を探してる

傷つくことから 逃げ出して
今日に立ちすくんだとしても
何も無くしてしまうものなど
きっと ないはずさ

明日のはじまりに
ぼくらは立っているから

小さくても大事な一歩は
君の未来を描き出すよ
何かをつかんだ
その汚れた手は 君の勲章

今は見えなくても
確かに君の胸の中にある
何かを信じ抜く強さは
君の笑顔を待ってる
The tears you shed now,
Unable to hold them back, are shining
Even so, that doesn't change
The unrestrained wind that moves your heart

It's important to try hard, but
If your strength only exists
To hide your honest weakness,
You're better off without it.

Even if you can't see it now,
It is certainly there in your heart:
The strength to keep believing in something
Awaits your smile.

All people wander through today,
Little travelers
Sometimes getting lost, sometimes straying
As they search for tomorrow

Escape from being hurt,
Even if you can't move today
There's nothing to lose,
Surely

Because we are standing
At the beginning of tomorrow

A step so small, yet important
Will depict your future
Grab hold of something
Your own dirty hands are your medal

Even if you can't see it now
It is certainly there in your heart:
The strength to keep believing in something
Awaits your smile
