Opening themes

The opening themes Pocket Monster, With You Accompanying Me and Fantastic Adventure are original compositions for the Cantonese dub, while Come on! Pokémon and all openings from Battle of the Advanced Generation onwards use the same composition as the equivalent Japanese opening.

From AG090 to DP191, all episodes were aired with subtitled original Japanese openings and endings. After A Magical Land, the Cantonese dub returned to airing subtitled original Japanese openings and endings.

Taiwan

With the exception of Best Wishes!, all other episodes were aired with subtitled original Japanese openings and endings.

Best Wishes!

Best Wishes!

Best Wishes! (Chinese: 超級願望! Chāojí Yuànwàng!) is the only opening theme of the Mandarin (Taiwan) dub of the Best Wishes series. It is an original composition for the dub, and uses footage from the Japanese opening Best Wishes!. This is due to disputed copyright issues between The Pokémon Company and Top-Insight, the Taiwan distributor, regarding the usage of the original opening theme.

TV version
Chinese English
不同的方向
不同的旅程
唯一不變是這冒險的精神
當我手中的地圖
變得泛黃陳舊看不清楚
我們究竟身在何處

不安的心情
都拋向那海洋
期侍的夢
給我希望和能量

傾聽心底的聲音
如此清晰依舊如此熟悉
一定可以尋得方向

嘿嘿嘿 向前邁進
大步的奔跑吧
嘿嘿嘿 向前邁進
大步的奔跑吧

把挑戰化為更大力量
飛向未來 超越極速
追追追 追追追

嘿嘿嘿嘿 向前邁進
大步的奔跑吧
嘿嘿嘿嘿 向前邁進
大步的奔跑吧
把挑戰化為更大力量
飛向未來 超越極速
追追追 夢想 沒有終點
A different direction
A different journey
But this spirit of adventure will always remain constant
When the map in my hands
Become all yellow, old, and blurry
Where will we end up?

This uncomfortable feeling
Throw it all into that ocean
A dream to look forward to
Has given me hope and energy

Listen to the sound from the bottom of one's heart
Still clear as before and still very familiar
I can definitely find the direction

Hey hey hey, move forward
Take a stride
Hey hey hey, move forward
Take a stride

Turn challenges into greater strength
Fly into the future, beyond the top speed
Chasing and chasing

Hey hey hey, move forward
Take a stride
Hey hey hey, move forward
Take a stride
Turn challenges into greater strength
Fly into the future, beyond the top speed
Chasing the dream has no end
