Synopsis

A new day dawns. Ash and Pikachu are on the top of a hill. The camera lowers and the Pokémon D/P logo appears.

Ash, Pikachu, Brock and Dawn are on the top of a tree while flying Pokémon, like Altaria, Fearow and Murkrow, along with non-Flying types like Misdreavus are flying in the background. A Chatot flies near the camera.

On a tree's branches, three Cherrim, a Kricketot, a Pachirisu, a Burmy and a Budew are dancing with happy faces.

Ash and his friends are chasing a Glameow in a city. The Glameow runs towards an alley.

Then, they are crossing a Bibarel's dam and exploring a dark cave, where they find a Drapion.

Images of Ash, Dawn and Brock with their Pokémon appear. Then, an image featuring Professor Oak, Tracey, Delia and Mimey appears, followed quickly by images of Johanna, Professor Rowan, Nurse Joy, Officer Jenny and a Super Contest.

Then, with a picture of Paul with a serious face as a background, Ash sends out Turtwig, Staravia, Pikachu and Buizel, showing their moves Razor Leaf, Wing Attack, Volt Tackle, and Aqua Jet, respectively.

Ash and Paul are fiercely looking at each other, standing with their Pokémon. Dawn sends out Piplup and Buneary, from two Poké Balls inside of capsules. Dawn and Zoey appear, and then Team Rocket does, smiling, with their Pokémon.

Ash and his friends are riding jet skis while Mantyke and Buizel jump over them and Manaphy appears.

Meanwhile, Palkia and Dialga are roaring, although they are in distant places; while Lucario is looking at them.

Ash, Pikachu, and Brock are sitting on a giant Poké Ball, and Dawn is sitting in front of it. They all smile.

とっておき ふくつのこころ もって
高いテンガン山 越えて行こう
だれをゲットかな? どこで出会うかな?
ワクワク気分 まるで ひみつきちさ

新しい町
僕らは進む
輝く時の中で
イエイ・イエイ・イエイ・イエ!!

甘くないさ バトルはいつだって
からい? にがい? しぶい? すっぱいね?
生きてるんだ だから感じよう
いっしょに
イエイ・イエイ・イエイ・イエ!!

アクアジェットで吹っ飛ばしてけ
モヤモヤ気分 きりばらいして
ロッククライム ほら、乗り越えたら
GOOD GOOD SMILE!!
みんな GOOD GOOD SMILE!!
With your Last Resort, a Steadfast heart
Let's go cross the tall Mt. Coronet
Who will we get? Where will we meet them?
I'm excited, as if it's a Secret Base

A new town
We'll proceed there
During shining times
Yay yay yay yeah!!

Battles are never Sweet
Spicy? Bitter? Dry? Sour
, right?
We are alive, so feel
Together
Yay yay yay yeah!!

Blast away with Aqua Jet
And Defog away our clouded spirits
Rock Climb - look, if we can climb over
Good good smile!!
Everyone good good smile!!

In the middle of a long, long journey
When I recall the uncountable battles
Crossing space and time
We can meet
Everyone's dazzling faces
Yay yay yay yeah!!

I'm still inexperienced so I train everyday
Win or lose, the end is still a handshake.
Sorry, but the Friendship Checker reads zero.
Truly it makes you cry cry cry, right!!

When your eyes are glittering like diamonds or pearls.
First in the beginning, use Quick Ball!!
When it's perfectly settled in a multi-battle
GOOD GOOD SMILE!!
Again, GOOD GOOD SMILE!!

Past and future
We aim towards
That place we pledged
Yay yay yay yeah!!

Battles are never Sweet
Spicy? Bitter? Dry? Sour, right?
We are alive, so feel
Together
Yay yay yay yeah!!

Blast away with Aqua Jet
And Defog away our clouded spirits
Rock Climb - look, if we can climb over
GOOD GOOD SMILE!!
Everyone GOOD GOOD SMILE!!

Anime episodes in which song was used as background music

Trivia

  • DP004 was the first episode to feature this opening, though DP002 and DP003 feature it on DVD releases.
  • This opening uses lots of Pokémon terminology in its lyrics such as the moves Aqua Jet, Defog, and Rock Climb.
  • All moves named in the song are new moves in Generation IV, two among them HMs.
  • "Spicy? Bitter? Dry? Sour?" refers to Poffin flavors.
  • This is the first opening to use a new mix for the same animation sequence, barring any changes to the sequence.
  • Together's animation, barring the minor alterations made for the change in the characters' teams, was used consistently across 95 episodes of the Pokémon anime, more than any other opening, even Aim to Be a Pokémon Master. However, due to the change in accompanying song from Together to Together2008, Aim to Be a Pokémon Master and its remix still top the combined total that both variations of Together have as the opening song.

Errors

  • Dialga is shown with the diamond on its chest as silver instead of blue.
