Anime Episode Music Project
Starting this week, we will begin to record information about the background music that plays in the Japanese episodes. The information will be displayed in the episode guide and it will allow people to click on the track to take them to the CD that the track is a part of. It will also allow viewers to listen to a brief sample of the track. Those specific features will only be available for music in the episode that has been released on CD. Unreleased tracks will also be reported but not linked to the CD database unless a new CD with the tracks becomes available.

Below are a few examples:
http://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/viewep/1053/Music
http://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/viewep/580/Music
http://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/viewep/948/Music

CD Database Integration
The CD database is directly tied to the episode guides listing of each episodes. Most tracks can be found in the Movie OST CD's or the Anime BGM sets. The CD database also lists each episode that a particular track is in with its appropriate time index in the episode as well as listing how many times that track has been used in the anime.

Unreleased Tracks
There are many tracks that have yet been released on CD. Many of them are movie related tracks, but there are also quite a few in episode tracks that have yet to be released on CD. These are cataloged and a list of those unreleased tracks is updated as they are identified.

Unreleased Tracks List: http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/0
Top Used Tracks List: http://www.pocketmonsters.net/epguide.php?action=topmusic

Project Status
Kanto and Orange Islands: Indexed
Johto: Indexed
Advanced Generation: Indexed
Diamond and Pearl: Indexed
Best Wishes: Awaiting more BW BGM tracks to be released. All songs and non-BW BGM tracks (except 4 Best Wishes tracks released in 2010) indexed.
XY: [i]Upcoming.


Movies: Indexed, except the as-of-yet unreleased movies.
Shorts: 6 out of 15 Indexed.
Specials: 10 out of 20 Indexed.
Side Stories: 4 out of 16 Indexed

We hope that this will be a useful feature for viewers of PocketMonsters.net. If you wish to assist in this project, you can report the information for any episode in this thread or the appropriate episode thread and it will be added to the database. A big thanks goes to ivantuga2 who worked tirelessly on the database indexing.

Most the music is up for DP170 now. If you know any the tracks I missed, let me know and I'll add them to the database.

I can see the tracks but I can't listen to any of them. Does anyone else have this problem?

Only tracks that have BGM on CD can be played, make sure you have flash installed.

Since the new background CD is coming out soon, decided to make sure we had as much music in the database as possible to make it easier to add any of the new tracks. The following episodes now have bgm listings:

Indigo 1: http://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/1#Music
Indigo 2: http://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/2#Music
Indigo 3: http://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/3#Music
Indigo 4: http://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/4#Music
Indigo 5: http://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/5#Music
Indigo 6: http://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/6#Music

Adamant has added the missing unreleased tracks that have now been released on CD to the first 4 episodes.

Indigo 1: http://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/1#Music
Indigo 2: http://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/2#Music
Indigo 3: http://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/3#Music
Indigo 4: http://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/4#Music

We are still looking for people willing to help out report tracks. Feel free to post track listings of episodes here on the forums so that you'll get credit for the work and then a staff member will add it to the site database.

I've figured I could help a bit.

Episode 35 - Legend of Miniryu
00:01 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/1#Track-1, Aim to Be a Pokemon Master: Opening Theme for Japanese Version
01:28 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/203#Track-3555, Pokémon Center: Pokémon Center music opens the episode, as Satoshi, Takeshi and Kasumi walk by a grass field
02:57 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3907, Unnamed: Kanto Title Card Music
04:10 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3869, Unnamed: Outside, Kaiser looks at a photo of him with Miniryu
05:28 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3884, The Rocket Gang's Secret Schemes: Rocket Gang hears the conversation from the roof of the house
06:14 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3878, If You Ask Us About Whatever…: Rocket Gang Motto Music
08:32 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3865, Get Pokémon!: Satoshi and Takeshi catch the Kentauros with the Safari Balls
10:02 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3905, Unnamed: Musashi asks Kaiser to tell the location of Miniryu, with a gun pointed to Kaiser's head by Kojirou
10:17 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3908, Unnamed: Dare da?
10:24 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3909, Unnamed: Kentauros!
10:52 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3906, Unnamed: Musashi sends Arbok to Wrap an enraged Kaiser
11:16 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/7#Track-1521, The Rocket Gang's Seven Transformations: Musashi suddenly dresses into a school girl outfit, trying to make Kaiser speak by "probably accepting a marriage" with him
12:07 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3922, Unnamed: A weird tickling machine enters the room slamming through the wall
14:36 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3914, Unnamed: Miniryu appears in the water in front of Musashi
16:01 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3877, Desperate Situation: Musashi throws a dynamite with counter into the Miniryu lake
17:34 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3904, Unnamed: Satoshi starts to drown in the Miniryu lake
18:17 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3910, I Got a Victory Badge!: A Hakuryu emerges in a wall of light, in the air
20:40 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3901, Unnamed: Satoshi, Takeshi and Kasumi leave the place and wave goodbye to Kaiser
20:58 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/4#Track-235, Nyarth's Song: Ending Theme for Japanese Version
22:19 - Mezase Pokemon Master instrumental: Episode 36 preview

1st question: does the number of occurrences of a background music in a CD includes the number of occurrences of the same music released in another CD? For example, if there are at least 2 CDs with a certain music, but the episode background music guide only points to 1 of them...

2nd question: is it possible to include instances of when a music is played at least twice in a single episode? Or it's not needed, and only the first time where it plays in an episode counts?

3rd question: if a music plays from a in-cartoon source, like from a radio, TV, does it still count as background music? For example, Nyarth's Song at 11:44 in the episode, when Rocket Gang was trying to interrogate the old man.

Not to mention that I'll start watching the episodes from 5 onwards to report possible music that was unreleased at the time the music guide was made.

Thanks for your work, I'll add it to the guide.

We use the recent "complete BGM" sets (which aren't FULLY complete) for consistency. Everything that's been released on non-movie sound tracks are included on these anyway.

We note all instances of a track, yes.

Yes, as long as it plays, it counts as BGM.

The guides for episode 5 and on were made after the "complete sets" were released, they just weren't listed in the thread when they were made, so they list everything released to date.

Ah, good to hear it being confirmed. Just wasn't sure how exactly it was handled.

Quote From: Adamant

In the episode 11 (example), the "Prayer" music plays twice, at 05:53 and 11:17. However, in the CD to where the music guide links, only the instance at 05:53 of the episode is listed.

Thanks for informing.

The occurence of a music in the Episode 11 - Stray Pokémon Hitokage is missing:

10:14 - http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3869, Unnamed:Satoshi, Kasumi and Takeshi bring Hitokage into the Pokémon Center.

The music's beginning is practically inaudible due to the background sounds and the group's talk, but it can be heard clearly until Hitokage is brought back into the Pokémon Center.

I've also noted that there are 2 mistakes (up to episode 11):
1st - in the music that plays at 03:33 in episode 8: it's actually http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3870 (Sneaking from the Shadows), not http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/214#Track-3877 (Desperate Situation).
2nd - in the music that plays at 01:28 in episode 11: it's actually http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/203#Track-3550, not http://www.pocketmonsters.net/cd/203#Track-3549 (both have the same name: "The Road to Tokiwa - From Masara"), aka the slower version instead of the fast one.

Thanks for submitting the track list. I've added it to the database. Sorry for the delay in reply, I was in Dubai this week for work. Adamant has answered most your questions anyhow.

As Adamant stated, we started adding music tracks for earlier episodes before the two new BGM cd sets were released. I have since converted tracks over to the new sets that had the same tracks. We feel its best to use those two cds as the basis as most people will probably have bought those sets instead of the older cds. We went over 1-4 already and still need to review 5+ as you've said, so any information to help us is greatly appreciated.

It also is probably easier for you to list the CD (203/214) and the Track Number (1,2,3+) instead of the DB ID. Either way is fine though.

Yes, could you please correct the mistakes in episodes 8 and 11 that I pointed out and add the music that's missing in the episode 11?

It's a bit easier for me to list the CD tracks, but I try to make life easier for the admins by using the database IDs :P

Fixed the 3:33 error for the wrong track. Added the missing track to PM011. The other track was added before we knew there was a second B track when the CD was released and subsequently ported over to that cd when it was released. Adjusted it. Thanks for reporting.

URL linking was also fixed on the forum as well.
