Pokémon Go! (song)

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.

Pokémon Go!, also known as Go Pokémon Go, is an English song used in the Pokémon anime. It was first used as the opening and ending theme for the special The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon, and was later used as the ending theme of the English dub of Pokémon: Battle Frontier, which encompasses the episodes from Fear Factor Phony to Home is Where the Start Is!.

The original airing of the English dub and the Japanese version of The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon use the rap portion of the song as both the opening and ending, while the redub changes the opening to use a different part of the song. A shortened version of the rap portion was used for the Battle Frontier ending, making it the only original ending theme to be used in the English dub of the main anime, as ending themes for the English dub otherwise have been shortened or instrumental versions of the opening themes.

The full version is available on the Pokémon X CD, and was also featured in the music video in the 10th Anniversary Perdue Farms promotion.

Full version

Pokémon Go Pokémon Go (It's on!)
Pokémon Go (It's going on!)
Pokémon Go Pokémon Go (It's on!)
Pokémon Go (It's going on!)

Come with me on a flight of mystery!
Learn to master the art of battle so expertly!
With Misty and May and Brock right there to see... yeah.
Ride a dream, come on and you'll really feel free!
Grab your (Pokédex!) and check to keep track of what you've seen!
You'll be catching Pokémon in no time from the land every day

I'm on a quest now!
Don't know when, where or how!
I'm gonna be the best,
Put my training to the test,

Gotta catch 'em all now
I'm ready to shout out so loud
I live for Pokémon
Long live Pokémon
And on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on

Pokémon Go Pokémon Go (It's on!)
Pokémon Go (It's going on!)
Pokémon Go Pokémon Go (It's on!)
Pokémon Go (It's going on!)

Do you remember the times that we shared in Kanto?
Sometimes it seems like a dream so very, very long ago!
Do you remember the battle that we fought in Johto?
Tell me (Tell me (Tell me)), where did all the time go?
Now to (Hoenn!) and beyond, the pace never slows!
When adventure awaits, you can't stop, no no no no...

I'm on a quest now!
Don't know when, where or how!
I'm gonna be the best,
Put my training to the test,

Gotta catch 'em all now
I'm ready to shout out so loud
I live for Pokémon
Long live Pokémon
And on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on

Yo!
Pokémon Masters, your heart beats faster
Training for the top, 'cause you know you can't stop!
Your training kicks (now), Pokémon Pow (wow!)
The power of a master, all before you will (bow!)
But don't let it get to your head, young Trainer
The road is long and filled with danger
Everyone says they deserve to be number one
But who can top you? The answer is none
Because they've never seen an expert like (you!)
One who knows the difference between Mewtwo (and Mew!)
Or someone who can tell you the type (Pikachu!)
Or someone who can tell you which Pokémon's (new!)

First you kick it in Kanto!
Then you head to Johto!
Don't know where to go, try to go with the flow!
Everybody knows how the fever is growing!
Watch out, next stop might be Hoenn
But even that's not where Pokémon'll end
There's even more adventures
Right around the bend!

I'm on a quest now!
Don't know when, where or how!
I'm gonna be the best,
Put my training to the test,

Gotta catch 'em all now
I'm ready to shout out so loud
I live for Pokémon
Long live Pokémon
And on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on
(It's going on!)
