Pokémon Symphonic Medley / GLORY DAY ~That Shining Day~
Catalog no. ZMCP-2000
There is an alternate mix of the song on the single. The TV version is most likely based on the POWER MIX. The POWER MIX also appears on the Full of Energy!! Pokémon Song Collection album.

GLORY DAY ~That Shining Day~ (Japanese: GLORY DAY 〜輝くその日〜 GLORY DAY ~Kagayaku Sono Hi~) is the fifth ending theme of the Advanced Generation series. It debuted in AG099, replacing Smile. A second cut with different lyrics debuted in AG109. It was replaced by Pokémon Counting Song in AG135. It returned in AG150 with a different animation. It was later replaced by I Won't Lose! ~Haruka's Theme~ in AG173.

At the time of its introduction, the animation for this song contained the most complex animation seen in any Pokémon ending sequence: it features animated images on top of a moving sky background. Included are scenes of all the current major characters, their Pokémon, and all of Ash's past Pokémon. The new animation (used from AG150 to AG172) featured Ash and Pikachu walking on a side of the screen as clips from the current episode were being played on the left side.

The POWER MIX, most likely the version used for the television ending, is only slightly different from the original mix. It features an organ at the beginning and brass instead of synthesizer during the final bridge.

Synopsis

AG099 - AG134

Clips of memories appear against the blue sky, in this order: Pidgeot, Butterfree, and Heracross fly in the air; Squirtle and Bulbasaur on the plain, with Tauros running in the background; Cyndaquil and a dancing Totodile on Lapras's back, swimming with Kingler; Bayleef smells the flowers, then looks at Phanpy, Snorlax, and Muk; Ash holds a Poké Ball; May in her "May's expedition" stance; Max with illuminated glasses, then stands in his apology stance; Brock holds up a ladle and a spoon; Pikachu makes impressions of Torkoal, Snorlax, and Bulbasaur.

A shot of Ash and his friends follows.

May's Pokémon appear with her. Then, Ash's Pokémon appear with him, and Snorunt/Glalie bounces in front of them. Brock and Max are shown with their Pokémon, and Ludicolo starts dancing in front of them. Team Rocket then appears on the screen, all in the balloon, except Jessie, who is holding a rose.

More clips follow: Jessie, first dresses as a maid, then as a nurse with Dustox, then as a cheerleader with Seviper, then as a sailor; James, first standing on a cliff, then in a Moltres costume, then holding a rose in his mouth and winks; then in his farmer costume; Meowth, Wobbuffet, and Chimecho, disguised as May, Max, and Caroline, respectively; Professor Oak, Tracey, and Delia poses; the first four shots from the first few clips; and all of the gang's Pokémon standing together.

Ash and his friends walk at sunset.

AG150 - AG172

Ash and Pikachu walk along as memories of the episode it was played in are shown as clips in the background; first against a plain background with mountains in the back, then a snowy mountain, then Ash and Pikachu sitting by a river on a red canyon, then sleeping against a tree with the full moon in the background.

Japanese English
GLORY DAY どしゃぶりの雨も
GLORY DAY 強い北風も
GLORY DAY ぜんぶ受け止めて
突き進め!! GLORY DAY

雲が遠く 流れてゆく
太陽残して
流れる汗 ふけば
「生きてる!!」って感じ

最低!!って 時にはメチャクチャ
落ち込んだって
きっと行けるはずさ
信じたなら自分を

GLORY DAY 迷った時には
GLORY DAY 風に聞けばいい
GLORY DAY そっと耳すませば
聴こえてくる "Believe Myself!!"
Glory Day! Even in pouring rain,
Glory Day! Even in a strong north wind,
Glory Day! Just accept it all,
And push ahead! Glory Day!

The clouds flow into the distance,
Revealing the sun.
When the sweat pours down
I feel I'm alive!

There are times I'm so down,
It seems the worst, but
Surely I can keep going
If I believe in myself.

Glory Day! When you lose your way
Glory Day! You should ask the wind
Glory Day! If you listen quietly
You will hear it: "Believe Myself!"

AG109 - AG134

GLORY DAY どしゃぶりの雨も
GLORY DAY 強い北風も
GLORY DAY ぜんぶ受け止めて
突き進め!! GLORY DAY

本気で ぶつかった時しか
見えないけれど
きっと出会うはずさ
こぼれるよな笑顔

「やったね!!」って 駆け寄る仲間は
きらめくダイヤ
絶対 曇らない
信じたなら みんなを

GLORY DAY まぶしい太陽も
GLORY DAY 流れる雲も
GLORY DAY ぜんぶ引き連れて
たどり着くさ!! GLORY DAY
Glory Day! Even in pouring rain,
Glory Day! Even in a strong north wind,
Glory Day! Just accept it all,
And push ahead! Glory Day!

Though I see nothing but the times
We clashed head on,
I'm sure I'll find
Your overflowing smile.

A friend running up to tell me "You did it!"
Is a sparkling diamond.
It will never grow dim
So long as I believe in everyone.

Glory Day! The dazzling sun
Glory Day! And the flowing clouds
Glory Day! I'll pull them along with me
And reach my goal! Glory Day!
