Under The Alolan Moon is the opening theme song for the English dub of the twenty-first season, Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon—Ultra Adventures. It was used from A Dream Encounter! to Turning the Other Mask!. The opening animation is composed of clips from the second version of the first Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon Japanese opening, Alola!!, and various Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon episodes, while the ending animation is composed of clips from the first Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon Japanese ending, Pose.


(Tapu Koko, Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu, Tapu Fini)
We've been preparing
Studying A to Z
Gettin' crazy, you and me
'Cause it's coming soon
When we all meet our destiny
Under the Alolan moon

  • An instrumental version of this song was used in Family Determination!, The Professors' New Adventure!, and A Mission of Ultra Urgency!.
  • This is the only opening theme song in both English and Japanese to have Pokémon names in the lyrics.
  • This is the only time where the closing credits' visuals are the same as the previous one. This is due to the original Japanese version not having a new ending theme at the time and, therefore, doesn't have any new visuals to use.
