Details of this CD have been added to our Audio Database.


Composer Yuki Hayashi comments:
Once again, there is lot of music, like we had turned a toy box upside down! I tried to make the second bunch more energetic and more grandiose. May the songs of their adventures also be the songs of the adventures of all who listen to them. As this is the last soundtrack release, it was an honor to get to do more arrangements of some wonderful songs this time as well!

Pocket Monsters anime composer Shinji Miyazaki has released a pre-production version of the fan favourite track Oración, from Pokémon: The Rise of Darkrai. This version features accompanying vocals, previously unheard in any media. Mr. Miyazaki is planning to editing more recorded scores to make them playable in a live performance.

YouTube Clip - Canciones de Oración



I have been involved in composing the original soundtracks for 23 Pokémon movies. (21 films with director Kunihiko Yuyama, 2 films with director Tetsuo Yajima).

When I look back on those 24 years, I feel a little disappointed now. This is because I rarely had the opportunity to enjoy concerts in the same time and space as the soundtrack fans.

So I'm thinking of picking up the major recording scores and editing them little by little. (Editing here means to make the total score playable in a live performance.)

I hope this weel meet the needs of soundtrack fans, even if only a little. If there is any concrete progress, I will let you know.

I also plan to create the following scores
"Canciones de Oración”
This is a tribute to the 2007 movie "The Rise of Darkrai"

Some soundtrack fans may say, "I don't like music with lyrics because they limit the image!" However, I myself was composing with vocals in mind (at the time), and if Director Yuyama had requested music with lyrics, this is what I would have done.

Alan Shirahama - on my way to Glory


To be given an opportunity to arrange Pokémon game music like this is such a fulfilling and wild experience for me. My younger self would have been overjoyed by the very idea. I like my beats to roll with a story-like structure and momentum, so I started off by conceptualizing how a Pokémon Trainer's everyday life would play out. The music begins with a laid-back mood in the Pokémon Center, which then transitions to a heated Trainer battle where the struggle to stay in the fight adds to the feeling of tension and excitement, and so forth. Hope you enjoy.

Alan Shirahama is a performer who made his debut in November 2012 as a member of "GENERATIONS", one of the most popular dance & vocal groups in Japan today. Alan became a member of the group "EXILE" in 2014. Alan's creativity and talent have no limits. In 2015, he started his career as a DJ and joined a creative music unit PKCZ®. Alan's style includes elements of Bass Music, Trap and Dubstep. He also cultivate his affinity for Hip Hop, Pop, House, and Disco through his love for dance. As a multi-talented artist... a DJ, trackmaker, actor, and singer... Alan is expected to make his way in the world.

Hyadain - Gyarados!


I mean, come on, you get full free access to the entire collection of original sound data from Pokémon Diamond Version and Pokémon Pearl Version, and be able to mix and match them to your heart's content? Count me in!

When I thought about Pokémon Diamond Version and Pokémon Pearl Version, a quick trip down memory lane took me back to the scene with the special report, "Search for the Red Gyarados!" featured on the TV early in the game. And just like that, my passion for Gyarados really exploded.

This Pokémon bears the handy "Intimidate" Ability, and even "Moxie" which I think is quite slick. Its Attack stat is certainly up there, but its Special Attack value isn’t too bad either. The Mega Evolved form is jaw-dropping to gaze at.

Sure, Gyarados is vulnerable to Electric-type moves, but that is nothing compared to the countless times this Pokémon saved me in close battles. All this nudged me towards crying out its name the way I did in my music.

I sprinkled in all sorts of sampled in-game sounds into the mix for your ears to spot, but it was far from exhausting the vast variety of assets provided in "Pokémon DP Sound Library". With all this material to work off of, I'm excited to see what kind of arrangement other artists will compose. To all Pokémon Trainer musicians out there! GYARADOS!!

Hyadain is a Japan-based composer / arranger / lyricist who has written and produced a wide array of songs for J-POP artists and idol groups on one end, and anime and games on the other. His music career began with a piano at the age of three, which eventually led to his break into the professional scene in 2007 through sampling video game music, among other works. Today, Hyadain is active in multiple playing fields, including making regular appearances on Pokémon television shows.


The official Japanese Pokémon YouTube channel will broadcast an Official Pokémon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl Release Commemorative BGM Orchestra (『ポケットモンスター ブリリアントダイヤモンド・シャイニングパール』発売記念 BGMオーケストラ) concert at 09:00 UTC. To celebrate the release of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, they'll be performing orchestral arrangements of BGM from Pokémon Diamond and Pearl!

Enjoy a special performance of the song Battle! Champion (戦闘!チャンピオン) that won first place on Twitter in the #DipaBGMChampionship (#ダイパBGM選手権) hashtag popularity contest.

The Shiseido Global Innovation Center (S/PARK) will hold the Harada Tadashi Collaborative exhibition BEAUTY EXPANSION with Pokémon Shirts from Friday October 15th, 2021 to Saturday, October 30th, 2021. (Closed on Sundays). For this exhibition, Shiseido's top hair and makeup artist Tadashi Harada will showcase his work in collaboration with Pokémon Shirts, a service that allows you to order your very own Pokémon shirt.

Harada has not only done hair and make-up for collections and advertisements, but has continued to take on the challenge of various beauty expressions such as visualizing popular manga and characters. Harada's unique expression and works have been highly regarded, and he collaborated on the Pokémon Shirts key visuals, in which he challenged himself to visualize the Pokémon characters Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza in hair, makeup, and fashion.

In this exhibition, the process of completing the Pokémon Shirts key visual will be shown, from image sketches to displays of hair wigs and hair pieces, as well as an original making-of video. Furthermore, as the exhibition is held within the Shiseido Global Innovation Center, Shiseido researchers will also be exhibiting scientific expressions of the key visuals from various perspectives as an initiative to allow visitors to familiarize themselves with cosmetics research technology. During the exhibition period, the S/PARK Cafe in the same facility will sell original red, blue, and green drinks inspired by Harada's works, and the S/PARK Museum will sell a limited edition booklet of Tadashi Harada x Pokémon Shirts and Pokémon acrylic key chains.

Contents of Exhibition

The world's largest Crystal LED display system, as of April 2019, on the first floor will display for the first time Harada's original and powerful collaborative video with Pokémon Shirts. Cornish, a composer and music producer who has created music for many popular TV programs and animations, including Pokémon, and is an artist with a unique sensibility and a wealth of novelty that he sublimates with his outstanding skills, has created a piece of music inspired by the key visual. The music is inspired by the key visuals and is used in the video. The design and styling of the Pokémon Shirts will also be exhibited.

Conisch recently composed the music for the animation Pokémon Twilight Wings (series of animation started from Jan 2020 inspired by the world-renowned Pokémon video games) which is gaining excellent reputation. His album released at the beginning of 2020 "ONKAN Episode1" is a collaborative work with a well-known sculptor Junkyu Muto and well-received as an innovative attempt of harmonising art and music.

Cornish's profile website (Soranone INC.)

The BEAUTY EXPANSION booth on the second floor is a space where visitors can "relive" Tadashi Harada's creations with their five senses. The exhibition shows the process of creating a key visual work inspired by the Pokémon shirt and the Pokémon characters Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza. From October 15th, 2021 to October 23rd, 2021, life-size LED panels of the key visuals will also be displayed.

In addition, Shiseido's researchers have created an exhibition that expresses the key visuals through science from a variety of perspectives. Using the key visuals created by Harada as a source of inspiration, fragrance research will present the creation of fragrances, sensitivity research will present explanations of texture and sensation, and psychological research will present the results of psychological verification of music created by composer and music producer Cornish. In addition, from psychological research, the results of psychological verification of a song by composer and music producer Cornish are presented.

Online Streaming


On Wednesday, October 20th, 2021, a live performance without an audience featuring composer/music producer Cornish, Harada, and Shiseido researchers, as well as scenes from the exhibition will be broadcast on the Shiseido official YouTube channel (free of charge).

Viewing period: Wednesday, October 20th, 2021 to Friday, December 31st, 2021

Special In-Game Activations Celebrating the Movie Planned for Pokémon Sword, Pokémon Shield, and More

BELLEVUE, Wash., and LOS ANGELES—September 7, 2021—The Pokémon Company International and Netflix announced today that the next animated movie in the Pokémon franchise will premiere on Netflix around the world with the exception of Japan, China, and Korea on October 8, 2021. First revealed in November 2020, “Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle” marks the 23rd animated Pokémon movie in the franchise.

It features “Always Safe” and “No Matter What,” two original songs written and recorded by music artist Cyn for the movie. Fans can look forward to hearing these songs during the movie on October 8 and stream them on popular music platforms beginning today. Cyn is also one of the many notable artists participating in the P25 Music program celebrating 25 years of Pokémon, for which she wrote and recorded another new song, “Wonderful.”


“During Pokémon’s 25th anniversary year, we wanted fans to have the opportunity to experience the newest animated Pokémon movie simultaneously as a global community,” said Emily Arons, senior vice president of licensing at The Pokémon Company International. “Pokémon animation is a much-beloved pillar of the franchise, and Netflix is the perfect partner to once again help us deliver a worldwide moment for fans as we celebrate 25 years of action and adventure with Ash and his Pikachu.”

“Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle” synopsis:
Deep within the Forest of Okoya, the Mythical Pokémon Zarude live in a troop and maintain a strict rule that forbids outsiders from entering their territory. Elsewhere in the jungle lives Koko, a human boy raised by a lone Zarude who left the troop. Koko has grown up never doubting that he is a Zarude. But one day, a chance meeting with Ash and Pikachu leaves Koko with his first human friend. Is he truly a Pokémon? Or is he, in fact, a human? When danger threatens the jungle, the bonds between Pokémon and human—and the love between parent and child—will be put to the test.

To further celebrate the announcement, beginning today, Trainers will be able to receive Dada Zarude and Shiny Celebi—both as featured in the movie—in their Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield games by signing up for Pokémon Trainer Club email notifications. Trainers who register in this way by September 25, 2021, will receive a Pokémon Trainer Club email containing a distribution code for both Pokémon on October 7, 2021.
