Pocket Monster (Chinese: 寵物小精靈 / 宠物小精灵 Chúngmaht Síujīnglìhng / Chǒngwù Xiǎojīnglíng) is the first opening theme of the Cantonese and mainland China dubs of the Pokémon anime. In both the Cantonese and Mandarin (mainland China) dub, it was used from EP001 to EP053. It was also used as the ending theme to the Cantonese dub of the first movie, Mewtwo's Counter-war. The opening animation uses footage from the first Japanese opening, Aim to Be a Pokémon Master.

This is the only Mandarin opening theme to have been used in the mainland China dub.

Opening animation

Synopsis

The type symbols appear in a circle, and the series logo appears on the screen. The final evolutions of the three starters, Pikachu, Ash and an unnamed Lass are seen. This is followed by three scenes showing random Generation I Pokémon.

Ash is then seen throwing a Poké Ball. After that, he is riding on the back of a Lapras with Pikachu while a Gyarados and a Dragonair are seen jumping out and into the water. Next, Ash and Pikachu are looking at Pallet Town. It cuts to a scene with them walking, and then Ash sent out a Pidgeot from a Poké Ball. The Pokémon then begins battling with a Fearow.

Ash appears looking at the screen, when Misty and Brock appear on either side of him. This is followed by Jessie and James rising up in front of them. Koffing, Meowth and Ekans jump up next, followed by Gary holding a Poké Ball. Ash and his friends are seen running in the rain. A Poliwrath sits on a stump near the river stream. This is followed by a short clip of Nurse Joy, Professor Oak, Officer Jenny and Delia Ketchum nodding their heads.

The next scene shows Ash and his friends in Viridian Forest. Then, Ash and Pikachu are seen running with an Arcanine and a Rapidash. The latter Pokémon leaps into the air, and the three legendary birds are seen flying in the sky. A clip of Mewtwo and Mew in space is shown, followed by Ash in a stadium holding a Poké Ball. His friends appear with him.

活在球內盡是生命
集合能量彈力超勁
日日能陪伴著我 精靈的群星
踏在漫長路憑友情
活在銀河全憑著愛
終於一天必會得勝

專心與你 與你 去競爭比拼
十萬伏特電能效應
加些勇氣 智慧 期望作掌門
要用我技倆 盡訓練那寵物精英

Pokémon 日夜鍛鍊去取勝
沿路看遍每個都市
飛過綠樹片片山莊
I Love Pokémon 認定你是朋友
打開心中的愛 便能用盡力量
Get!

Relying on friendship to travel the long road
Relying on love to live in this galaxy
Finally triumphing one day

Concentrating with you to compete against others
The effect of 100,000 volts
Along with courage and intelligence in hoping to become the master
I have to use my tactics in order to train the best

Pokémon. Training day and night to win.
Looking around every city on the road
Flying over the green trees and mountain villas
I Love Pokémon, recognizing you as a friend
Open your heart to use all your strength

神奇的小精灵是我的了!

你能够上天和入水
你有最活泼的智慧
不说话也懂得我 感觉多敏锐
累了爱悄悄的瞌睡
比赛却永不溃退
随时随地给我安慰

躺在天空 大地 温暖的怀抱
走万里也不嫌累
训练精灵 决心 在宇宙巡回
每次冒险都让我学会生命的可贵

Pokémon 走进我口袋中
一起飞过银河尽头
拜访最可爱的朋友
I Love Pokémon
宠物精灵的领袖
用尽爱的力量
什么都能学会
Get!

The Pokémon is mine!

Can you go above the sky and below the water
Do you have the most active insight
Your understanding of me without speech seems quite sharp
Even when I'm so tired that I want to sleep
I will never lose or surrender in a contest
Anytime and anywhere, you give me comfort

Hidden in the sky or land, a warm embrace
Having walked long distances, yet remaining unfazed
To train Pokémon, one must be determined in roving the universe
Every adventure taught me something valuable

Pokémon, return to my pocket
Together flying over the edge of the galaxy
Visit the cutest friends
I Love Pokémon
The leader of Pokémon
Exert the power of love
I can learn anything
Get!
