Let's Join Hands (Japanese: 手をつなごう Te o Tsunagō) is the sixth ending theme of the Best Wishes series. It debuted as an ending song in BW123, replacing Sakura Go-Round.

Ending Animation

Ash, with Pikachu on his shoulder, makes a phone call to his mother while Mimey stands next to her. Cilan and Pansage sends an e-mail to Chili, who receives it at the Striaton Gym with Pansear standing next to him. Iris and Axew send a letter to the Elder and Shannon via Wingull. At Nuvema Town, Professor Juniper tells Bianca something, which causes her to freak out and call Burgundy, Georgia and Stephan on the Xtransceiver.

Burgundy, who's studying at a Pokémon Center, doesn't take the news well and gets angry. Stephan takes the news just fine and walks off while Don George and Sawk flex in the background. Georgia hangs up and looks up into the air sadly while her Beartic stares at her. The scene transitions to N extending his hand to a group of Pidove, Cameron walking with his Lucario, Virgil and Eevee flying in a helicopter, and Trip taking pictures while his Serperior sits next to him. Trip looks to the camera and takes a picture, which transitions to various screenshots of BW001 to BW122 and ends with a picture of Ash, Iris, and Cilan with their on hand Pokémon.

Jessie, James, and Team Rocket are seen with Delibird, who gives them blueprints for a Basculin submarine from Dr. Zager on a tablet. On a beach, Scraggy trips on the ground, but is helped up by Pikachu and Axew. On top of a tree, Pansage and Snivy hand apples to Excadrill and Pignite while a stuffed Oshawott sleeps and Emolga greedily eats apples in the background. In a city, Crustle and Stunfisk can't get up some stairs, so Charizard and Dragonite help by lifting them off the ground.

Ash and Iris begin holding hands, and are soon followed by Cilan. The camera pans along various main characters and rivals from throughout the anime's run with their Pokémon standing next to them. Inside a circle sits an Eevee and its eight evolutions which is surrounded by Ash, who holds hands with his his friends and family in a giant circle. The camera zooms out to a map of Unova, which zooms out even further to show the entire planet from space. From space, several Poké Balls fly across the screen to indicate messages being sent out.

Japanese English
だれのせいでもないけど きみは道でころんで
そのままそこに寝転び 青い空を見上げた
ほほをつたう涙の きらめき飾りじゃない
生きてることのよろこび 今忘れちゃいけない
膝をついて 起き上がった
泥だらけの 傷跡の痛みは エールだ
きみと手をつなごう つらいときはもっと
ゼロからはじめよう ほら ほら 手をつなごう
みんな手をつなごう つらいときはもっと
力を合わせよう ほら ほら 手をつなごう
ずっと ずっと 手をつなごう
It's nobody's fault when you fall down the road
Just lie down and look at the blue sky
The tear flowing down your cheek is not a glimmering decoration
Do not forget the joy of life today
Got on your knees and stood up
Your back is stained
The pain of the mud-covered scar yells
You and I join hands, even more in painful times
Let's start from zero. Look, look, let's join hands
Everyone join hands, even more in painful times
Let's share our strength. Look, look, let's join hands
Let's join hands all the way
