Japanese English
進め、進め!考えてちゃ遅いから
かそくする思いは、でんこうせっかで
迷ってる暇なんてないでしょう?

負けない 逃げない 止まない 雨なんてない
涙ぎゅっとこらえて、きしかいせい
踏み出せ!すぐにハレルヤ

ぶつかりあって
燃える思いオーバーヒート
迷いはらって
ほえろ雷鳴のように
理屈じゃない 未来を今
さあ、この手に切り開くんだ

ゲッタバンバン ゲッタバンバン ゲッタバンバン
まだ見ぬ未来へ
OH YEAH 立ち向かって
OH YEAH 何度だって

ゲッタバンバン ゲッタバンバン ゲッタバンバン
一人じゃないから
OH YEAH 止まらないで
OH YEAH 共に行こう輝く未来へ

1、2、3で準備オッケイ!おいかぜに乗って!
ガンガン飛ばして行こう!見たことない世界へ
Just head on, head on! Thinking's only gonna slow you down
When emotions boost up my speed like a Quick Attack
There isn't a moment to waste, right?

I won't lose, I won't run, no rain can last forever
So I'll Endure my tears out and then do a complete Reversal
Just set off! The sky'll clear right up with a Hallelujah

Sometimes we'll fight
We've got passions so strong they're gonna Overheat
So get rid of hesitation
Roar like the thunder
You don't need logic to forge your own way
So come on, pull open the future with your own hands

I'm a mad-paced getter, a mad-paced getter, a mad-paced getter
There's an unexplored future for me
Oh yeah, just gotta face my fears
Oh yeah, and I'll do it every time

I'm a mad-paced getter, a mad-paced getter, a mad-paced getter
I know I'm never alone
Oh yeah, so I won't back down
Oh yeah, let's head out into the dazzling future together

Just say 1,2,3 and I'll be ready to go! Riding the Tailwinds at our back!
Let's crack on! Leap into an unexplored world

Let's see what we can share
You've got nothing to fear, right?

Just head on, head on! Getting jumpy's only gonna slow you down
With a go-for-broke style
Just fly off! The road will show up

Fire up your engine
Kicking it to overdrive with a heart-pounding pace
Stuff about being a wimp
Set yourself into full speed and leave it in the dust
The future has yet to be explored
So come on, grab onto it with your own hands

I'm a mad-paced getter, a mad-paced getter, a mad-paced getter
There's an unexplored future for me
Oh yeah, just gotta stretch my arms
Oh yeah, and I'll do it every time

I'm a mad-paced getter, a mad-paced getter, a mad-paced getter
I know I'm never alone
Oh yeah, so I'm not afraid
Oh yeah, whatever future I face
I know I can overcome it

I'll get up every time
So I'm never giving up
Nor will I ever let
Dreams remain to be dreams

I'm a mad-paced getter, a mad-paced getter, a mad-paced getter
There's an unexplored future for me
Oh yeah, just gotta face my fears
Oh yeah, and I'll do it every time

I'm a mad-paced getter, a mad-paced getter, a mad-paced getter
I know I'm never alone
Oh yeah, so I'm not afraid
Oh yeah, let's head out into the dazzling future together

Just say 1,2,3 and I'll be ready to go! Riding the Tailwinds at our back!

Opening animation spoilers

Variant 1

Variant 2

  • Clemont's Luxio evolves into Luxray.
  • Serena's Fennekin evolves into Braixen.

Variant 3

Trivia

  • In the second variant, at the part where Serena and her Pokémon are performing in a Pokémon Showcase, the outfits worn match those found on the DreamDream Limited Pokémon Edition cover art.
  • The complete team roster shown in the second variant was valid for less than one episode, as Sliggoo evolved in the episode directly following Fennekin's evolution into Braixen.
    • A similar error is present in the third variant; while Sawyer's Treecko was present in this variant, it evolved in the episode before Noibat was caught.
  • This song is featured in the game Dancing? Pokémon Band, made available with the Ver.1.1.0 update.
  • In the third variant, the scene featuring Eevee's dancing is very similar to a scene in A Frolicking Find in the Flowers!.
  • Despite the fact that Ash and Alain meeting each other was spoiled in the third variant, the two didn't actually meet until From A to Z!, the episode after this opening was replaced.
  • This is the first Japanese opening theme, and the only one so far, to have no clips from the opening animation used in any English opening theme.

Errors

  • In the first variant, during the scene of Ash and his friends riding on the giant Poké Balls, Clemont and Bonnie's giant Poké Ball is seen cut off in one frame.
  • In the first variant and second variant, at the part where Ash is releasing his Pokémon, the toes on Frogadier's feet are colored white instead of dark blue. This error was later fixed in the third variant.
  • In the second variant and onwards, at the part where Serena is about to release her Pokémon, Pancham's Poké Ball's pattern colors are swapped as she is holding it upside down.
  • In the third variant when Noibat falls to the ground, its eyelids are colored purple instead of black. This error was fixed in A Fashionable Battle! and onward.
  • In the third variant when Serena, Braixen, and Pancham are watching Eevee dancing on a rocky platform from afar, part of Serena's dress is colored red instead of pink. This error was fixed in Scary Hospitality! and onward.
  • In the first variant, at the part where the main characters and their Pokémon are looking at the sunset, Luxio's pupils are black instead of yellow. In the same scene in second and third variants, Luxray's stomach is black instead of blue.

Variants

Clips from the movie are used to promote its premiere
  1. XY055 - XY060: The original animation.
  2. XY061 - XY070: The animation is updated to show Serena with her new design, Ash's Sliggoo, Clemont's Luxray, and Serena's Braixen.
  3. XY071 - XY093: The animation updated with the following changes: Ash meeting Alain in place of Clemont appearing after Ramos, Valerie, and Olympia appeared; Noibat in place of Sliggoo and the scene of Goomy fully evolving to Goodra was replaced with Ash's Noibat falling to the ground and crying; and Ash's Gym Battle against Clemont and the view of Lumiose City were replaced with Eevee dancing on a rocky platform at night and Serena watching from afar with Braixen and Pancham.

Besides these variants, from A Festival Trade! A Festival Farewell? through A Legendary Photo Op!, clips from Hoopa and the Clash of Ages were used in, replacing all the footage from the regular sequence, except for Ash and his friends' preparations at the beginning sequence, but only for the first airings on TV Tokyo.
