Torchic/Combusken

Ani255MS.pngAni256MS.png

"Route 101" from Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire I have no idea. Plus the song I have in mind in Blaziken doesn't really fit with these two.

Gardevoir/Gallade

Slakoth287.png "Dodo's Beak Dodge" from Super Mario RPG It expresses Slakoth's laziness.
Vigoroth288.png "Fight Against A Somewhat Stronger Monster" from Super Mario RPG Vigoroth is very hyperactive, and this theme expresses that.
Slaking289.png "Dodo's Beak Dodge" from Super Mario RPG And we're back to the laziness factor.
Nincada290.png "Sammer's Kingdom" from Super Paper Mario Well, it may not be samurais per say; but Nincada is still inspired by Asian martial arts.
Ninjask291.png "Battle Time" from Super Paper Mario Same reasons as Scyther.

Volbeat313.png "Out of the Woods: Day" from Wario Land 3 It's a Forest Pokémon, plus I might as well try to be unique with this guy and it's partner, Illumise.
Illumise314.png "Out of the Woods: Night" from Wario Land 3 It's a Forest Pokémon, plus I might as well try to be unique with this guy and it's partner, Volbeat.

"Beneath the Waves" This remix of "Aquatic Ambience" fits with Wailmer and Wailord because of the whale calls in the background.

Ani322MS.pngAni323MS.png

"Thwomp Caverns" Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time It's fiery and the slow tempo fits with these guys' sluggishness.

Swablu/Altaria

Ani333MS.pngAni334MS.png

"Cloud Level" from Donkey Kong Land I have got to stop putting Donkey Kong related music into these things. At least this one is something isn't one that I've used already...
Zangoose335.png "Main Street Colosseum" from Pokémon Colosseum I'm absolutely clueless on this one.

Crawdaunt342.png "Gloomy Galleon" from Donkey Kong 64 Dang it! I swear that this is the last I'll be using this song...
Baltoy/Claydol

Ani343MS.pngAni344MS.png

"Hoohoo Mountain" from Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga These guys are the idols of an ancient civilization, much like how Hoohoo Mountains was the home of an ancient civilization of the Beanbean Kingdom. Plus the name coincides with Claydol resemblance to Hoothoot. :P
Lileep/Cradily

Ani345MS.pngAni346MS.png

"Floro Caverns" from Super Paper Mario The song has a nice prehistoric tone to it which fits with the fact that Lileep and Cradily are ancient plants.
Anorith/Armaldo

Ani347MS.pngAni348MS.png

"Downtown Crag" from Super Paper Mario This song was used in the same chapter as Super Paper Mario as "Floro Caverns". Not much else, brah.
Feebas349.png "Dodo's Beak Dodge" from Super Mario RPG Same reasons as Magikarp.
Milotic350.png "Mermaid's Palace" from Donkey Kong 64 Well, Milotic does draw inspiration from mermaids.
Castform351.png "Cloud Levels" from Donkey Kong Land It looks like a cloud.
Kecleon352.png "Fort Francis" from Super Paper Mario Nerrrr... I can definitely picture Kecleon dancing "The Robot" to this HIGH TECHNICAAAAAL song. Plus, Francis and Kecleon are both chameleons.
Shuppet/Banette

Ani353MS.pngAni354MS.png

"Luigi's Mansion" from Mario Kart DS Well, I guess that any ghostly music will fit with theses guys.
Duskull/Dusclops/Dusknoir

"Mt. Pyre: Outer Wall" from Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire Well, it's were one would catch a Chimecho.
Absol359.png "Bowser's Keep (Second Time)" from Super Mario RPG It sounds like a great tragedy is coming forth and Absol is infamous for appearing when disaster strikes.
Snorunt361.png "Vanilla Lake" from Super Mario Kart It sounds icy and cutesy, like Snorunt.
Glalie362.png "Elemental Palace/Joke's End" from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga This song sounds as cold and forbidding as Glalie's icy stare.
Spheal/Sealeo

Ani363MS.pngAni364MS.png

"Spheal Bonus stage" from Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire Gah! I can't believe I'm doing this kind of thing again! >_<
Walrein365.png "Iced Land" from Super Mario Bros. 3 Well, the previous one didn't really fit with Walrein, anyway.
Clamperl/Gorebyss

Ani366MS.pngAni368MS.png

"Aquatic Ambience" from Donkey Kong Country I've got to stop using this one, but it especially fits with Gorebyss.
Huntail367.png "Water World" from Donkey Kong Country 3 Huntail is a bit shadier than Gorebyss, which fits with this song.
Relicanth369.png "Water World" from Donkey Kong Country 3 A dark and mysterious water theme also seems to fit with an ancient aquatic Pokémon.
Luvdisc370.png "Underwater World" from New Super Mario Bros. This cutesy aquatic theme really fits with a Pokémon that's useless, but not ugly.
Bagon/Shelgon

Ani371MS.pngAni372MS.png

"The Canyon" from New Super Mario Bros. Uh... Not really sure what would've fit with these two. All I know is that what I have planned for Salamence won't fit with these two.
Salamence373.png "Fungi Forest Boss" from Donkey Kong 64 What did I tell you? This song just screams the chaos and destruction that Salamence can dish out. Plus, this song was boss music for a dragon.
Beldum/Metang/Metagross

Ani374MS.pngAni375MS.pngAni376MS.png

"Hideout Helm" from Donkey Kong 64 This song especially fits with Metagross, who is a real beast at competitive battling.
Regirock/Regice/Registeel

Ani377MS.pngAni378MS.pngAni379MS.png

"Regi Battle" from Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire Well, it's their own battle music.
Latias/Latios

Ani380MS.pngAni381MS.png

"Sky Sanctuary" from Sonic & Knuckles I don't know why, but this song does seem to fit with the Lati twins.
Kyogre382.png "Kyogre Bonus Stage" from Pokémon Pinball: Ruby and Sapphire Once again, it was Kyogre's own personal bonus stage..
Groudon383.png "Groudon Bonus Stage" from Pokémon Pinball: Ruby and Sapphire Words don't seem to do justice as to why this fits.
Rayquaza384.png "Rayquaza Bonus Stage" from Pokémon Pinball: Ruby and Sapphire I'm not going to bother to explain this one.
Jirachi385.png "Rainbow Road" from Mario Kart: Super Circuit Just trying to keep up the pattern of having the mini-Psychic ledgendaries be associated with Rainbow Road themes.
Deoxys386.png "Deoxys Battle" from Pokémon FireRed & LeafGreen Once more, this was Deoxys's own personal battle music.

Gen IV

Pokémon Song Reason
Turtwig/Grotle/Torterra

Ani387MS.pngAni388MS.pngAni389MS.png

"Forest Frenzy" from Donkey Kong Country Well, the other Grass starters have a Forest theme from the Donkey Kong series for there themes, might as well give the remaining one to the plant-based turtles...
Chimchar/Monferno/Infernape

Ani390MS.pngAni391MS.pngAni392MS.png

"Flowing Lava" from New Super Mario Bros. The song is fast-paced, which fits with how fast Infernape is.
Piplup393.png "The Snow Plains" from New Super Mario Bros. A cute sounding ice-theme for a cute, (somewhat) icy Pokémon.
Prinplup394.png "The Snow Plains-Versus Mode" from New Super Mario Bros. Well, a theme as cutesy as the previous one doesn't really fit that well with Prinplup.
Empoleon395.png "NSMB Castle: Ice Remix" by SonicMaster This one is truly fitting to an emperor of the frozen south.
Starly/Staravia

Ani396MS.pngAni397MS.png

Bidoof/Bibarel

Ani399MS.pngAni400MS.png

"Let's Go Down the Wine River" from Super Mario RPG I don't know, it sounded "beaverish" to me...
Kricketot/Kricketune

Ani401MS.pngAni402MS.png

"Honeyhive Galaxy/Golden Leaf Galaxy" from Super Mario Galaxy Well, one of the instruments in the song is a xylophone, and Kricketot's call sounds like a xylophone. There also some string-instrument parts in the song, which fits with Kricketune.
Shinx/Luxio/Luxray

Ani403MS.pngAni404MS.pngAni405MS.png

"Huff N. Puff's theme" from Paper Mario Because of the slow, electric beat.
Roserade407.png "King Croacus Battle" from Super Paper Mario The song does seem to fit well for such a deadly beauty as Roserade.
Cranidos/Rampardos

Ani408MS.pngAni409MS.png

"Stonetooth Cavern" from Wario Land: Shake It! Not much other than the fact that the place is loaded with fossils.
Shieldon/Bastiodon

Ani410MS.pngAni411MS.png

"Its-all Mine" from Wario Land: Shake It! Pretty much the same reason as above, plus the whole-version exclusive counterpart thing.
Burmy/Wormadam

Ani412MS.pngAni413MS.png

"Stickerbrush Symphony" from Donkey Kong Country 2 Mostly because I used it for Pineco/Foretress.
Mothim414.png "Maple Treeway" from Mario Kart Wii Seems fitting to associate an autumn-colored Pokémon with an autumn-themed area.
Combee415.png "Honeyhive Galaxy" from Super Mario Galaxy Because it's a honeybee.
Vespiquen416.png "Hornet Man's Stage" from Mega Man 9 Meh, I was trying to avoid going with "Flight of the Zingers" again.
