Japanese English
この不思議
ポケットモンスター・・・
ちぢめてポケモン!
、サトシとポケモンたちの
出会いと冒険いの
物語がはじまる!
The mysterious creatures of this planet
Pocket Monsters...
"Pokémon" for short!
Now, the story of Satoshi and Pokémon,
Their meetings, adventures, and battles
Are about to begin!

Synopsis

The song begins featuring Ash and his Kalos team. Then Serena is shown on the pink background, Clemont is shown on the cyan and Bonnie with Dedenne on the yellow. The next scene shows Ash and his friends running on the meadow and looking at Lumiose City. In next scene, Serena dances with her Pokémon in their performance costumes, Clemont, with his Pokémon tries to create a gadget, and Bonnie is being dragged by Squishy in its 10% form. Ash is then shown with his Greninja reflecting on his battles with Sawyer and Alain. Greninja then walks away from Ash. Ash tries to reach Greninja, only to realize it was only a puddle of water. However, Ash and Greninja's bond grow closer, and Greninja is able to activate a new form. Ash is then seen battling Sawyer and his Mega Sceptile. Though Sceptile has a type advantage, Greninja, in its new form, is able to gain an upper hand and possibly defeated Sceptile. Team Flare, along with Alain and his Mega Charizard X, then appears, wanting to capture Squishy. Squishy, however, changed its form to 10%, 50%, and finally Complete form. Wulfric is then seen in the Pokémon Village. The song ends with the main characters all together in four-colored hexagon background (dark blue for Ash and Pikachu; pink for Serena; yellow for Bonnie, Dedenne and Squishy; and cyan for Clemont).

Hey! Just like the morning sun shining upon Kalos
(Rush in hot like a Flame Charge)
Come on! Just head on as we're ready anytime
(Be a Protean Mold Breaker)

Our overlapping feelings synchronize
As they become our unfading bonds
Growing stronger until the end
If it's just us, woh woh woh yeah...

Let'z go!! The fiercely burning battle
Let'z go!! Crises are chances
Let'z go!! Do a Reversal
Absolutely never giving up

Let'z go!! Holding tight to our dreams
Let'z go!! We're sure to get them
Let'z go!! Stretch out your hands
Up to the heights unknown

Come on! Raise it up (1,000,000 Volts)
Alright! Let's face our fears and head on together
