Opening animation

Synopsis

The opening begins with a low camera view of Ash and Pikachu running along the beach. Their footprints are quickly washed away as a wave rolls in. The opening then cuts to scenes of the clouds quickly rolling over the island and of two Passimian running through a lush jungle with a Pikipek nearby. Finally, the sun rises over the ocean and the series logo appears.

Poipole is shown in a world of darkness until it notices a beam of light. The next shot shows Poipole racing through an Ultra Wormhole which eventually leads it to Alola. Poipole is then seen exploring multiple lights in its new world, such as a traffic light and a lantern, until it collapses on the roof of the Pokémon School, where it looks up to see Ash and Kiawe having a battle. It becomes engrossed in the light from Pikachu's Thunderbolt. It rushes towards Ash and Pikachu in excitement, who turn around and greet it with a smile.

Ash, his classmates, and their Pokémon are shown excitedly heading towards the Pokémon School, but then turn around to the camera and cheer. Ash and his classmates are then seen heading up an elevator and take off on their Ride Pokémon as the Ultra Guardians. They find themselves in front of several Ultra Beasts, who menacingly look down on them. Despite the threat, the Ultra Guardians are full of confidence as their Pokémon all cheer. The next scene is a series of colored sketches of Ash, his classmates, Professor Kukui and Burnet, Team Rocket, Gladion, and their respective Pokémon. Finally, Ash and his classmates are seen at the Pokémon School, where they watch the sunset, as Toucannon and its flock fly by.

Japanese English
Oh oh! Let's go!!

差し込んだ光 スタートの合図
何か変えたいって 無我夢中で走った
ひとりぼっちで迷い込んだ世界
見つけたよ 探してた夢のひとかけら
キミに決めた!

未来コネクション 新しい今日から始めよう
Oh oh!
ウルトラだね 晴れのちカラフル
未来コネクション ちょっぴり不安でも平気さ
Oh oh!
手を繋げば ほらキラキラ輝く

太陽みたいな キミが大好きだ
Oh oh! Let's go!!

The light beaming through is the starting signal
I want to change something, so I dashed on without a thought
Wandering alone into this world
But I've found it, a piece of the dream that I've been looking for
I choose you!

Future connection, let's start from a new today
Oh oh!
Going ultra, the sky clears with vibrant colors
Future connection, it feels tense but that's cool
Oh oh!
If we join our hands, look at how brilliantly you shine

Bright like the sun, I like you

Japanese English
oh oh!
Let's go!!

差し込んだ光 スタートの合図
小さな手のひら 握りしめてた
くすぐった心 カバンに詰め込んで
何か変えたいって 無我夢中で走った

ひとりぼっちで迷い込んだ世界
見つけたよ 探してた夢のひとかけら

キミに決めた!

未来コネクション 新しい今日から始めよう oh oh!
ウルトラだね 晴れのちカラフル
未来コネクション ちょっぴり不安でも平気さ oh oh!
手を繋げば ほらキラキラ輝く

息が切れるくらい 振り向かず走って
たどり着いたのは まだスタートライン
この先も道はずっと続いてて ほっとしたよ
僕らの 夢は無限大

キミがいれば!

未来コネクション 知らない世界探しに行こう
ミラクルだね 晴れのちカラフル
未来コネクション つまづいても大丈夫さ
手を繋げば ほらキラキラ輝く

まだ夢は途中 この先は見えない
本当は 怖いんだよ
大切な仲間 大切な時間
過ぎてって 消えちゃいそう
ずっとずっと先の夢の終点に
行けるから?いつかは
これからもずっとキミと笑っていたい

未来コネクション 君と出合えてよかったよ
いっしょに行こう まだ見ぬ明日へ
未来コネクション 新しい今日から始めよう
ウルトラだね 晴れのちカラフル
未来コネクション ちょっぴり不安でも平気さ
どんな時も ほらキラキラ輝く

太陽みたいなキミが大好きだ
Oh oh!
Let's go!!

The light beaming through is the starting signal
These tiny palms holding on tight
A ticklish heart stuffed into the bag
I want to change something, so I dashed on without a thought

Wandering alone into this world
But I've found it, a piece of the dream that I've been looking for

I choose you!

Future connection, let's start from a new today, oh oh!
Going ultra, the sky clears with vibrant colors
Future connection, it feels tense but that's cool, oh oh!
If we join our hands, look at how brilliantly you shine

As long as I breathe and never turn back
We'll get there, but we're still at the starting line
The road continues on from here, so relax
Our dreams are endless

Because you're here!

Future connection, let's explore the unknown world
It's a miracle, the sky clears with vibrant colors
Future connection, it's alright if you stumble and fall
If we join our hands, look at how brilliantly you shine

On the way to our dreams, but what's ahead is still unknown
But to be honest, I'm scared
Important friends and important times
If there's too much, they might disappear
Our dreams seem to always be so far away
Can we still go? Someday
From here on out, I want to laugh with you

Future connection, it was great meeting you
Let's head on to the unexplored tomorrow​
Future connection, let's start from a new today
Going ultra, the sky clears with vibrant colors
Future connection, it feels tense but that's cool
Anytime, look at how brilliantly you shine

Bright like the sun, I like you
