Under The Alolan Sun is the opening theme song for the English dub of the twentieth season, Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon. It was used from Alola to New Adventure! to When Regions Collide!. The opening animation is composed of clips from the first Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon Japanese opening, Alola!!, and The Guardian's Challenge!, while the ending animation is composed of clips from the first Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon Japanese ending, Pose.


I could get used to this heat on my skin
I can feel every day, I'm a little bit stronger
I only wish each day was longer

Yeah! We're having fun in the sun (the Alolan sun)
Week after week
It's just like we're on vacation

Yeah! Now our journey's begun,
Friends 'til the end
Number one's our destination

Under the Alolan sun
