The Time Has Come (Pikachu's Goodbye) is a song first featured in Pikachu's Goodbye, playing in the background of Ash's flashbacks about Pikachu. The song was also featured on the Pokémon 2.B.A. Master CD and during the end credits of Pokémon Heroes: Latios & Latias. An instrumental version played in at least three other anime episodes. In the Dutch version of the series, it was also played at the end of Bye Bye Butterfree, when flashbacks of him and his Butterfree are shown.

Important flashbacks

Some of the flashbacks in the episode include:

Lyrics

I close my eyes and I can see the day we met,
Just one moment and I knew:
You're my best friend, do anything for you.

We've gone so far and done so much
And I feel like we've always been together.
Right by my side through thick and thin,
You're the part of my life I'll always remember.

The time has come,
It's for the best, I know it.
Who could have guessed that you and I -
Somehow, someday, we'd have to say goodbye.

You've helped me find the strength inside
And the courage to make my dreams come true.
How will I find another friend like you?

Two of a kind, that's what we are,
And it seems like we were always winning.
But as our team is torn apart,
I wish we could go back to the beginning.

The time has come,
It's for the best, I know it.
Who could have guessed that you and I -
Somehow, someway, we'd have to say goodbye.

Somehow today, we have to say goodbye.
