It's always hard,
When the journey begins.
Hard to find your way,
Hard to make new friends.
But there's nothing you can't do,
'Cause you got the power inside of you.
It's not always black and white,
But your heart always knows what's right.
It's not about win or lose, it's the path you choose.
Let the journey begin,


  • This is the first dub opening for the Pokémon anime to not feature any human characters.
  • This is the first dub opening to be composed completely of CGI.
  • This is also the first dub opening to feature a duet. It's also the first opening for the main anime, both in the original and dub, to feature a male and female duet.
    • Pokémon Chronicles had a male and female duet for their opening but it was only a side series.
  • This is the shortest dub opening to date.
  • Unlike in Best Wishes!, all of the Pokémon are revealed and are not in silhouette.
    • Due to this, numerous Pokémon that were not revealed to American audiences were leaked before the game release.
