    I love the SSBB remix of the original R/B theme. The horns sound sound very adventurous.

    For anyone who's also big into sonic, people on youtube have been remixing old sonic songs with the BW2 Soundfront, and they sound amazing

    Look what I came across, from 1938:

    Reminds you of anything?

    Masuda's work sure is great, but coincidentally, it sounds like somebody else has had the idea more than a century before him (some searching reveals the song they sing is a sped-up version of "Polly Wolly Doodle" from 1880).

    Some of the songs in this series are the most moving pieces I've ever heard, it's hard not to be overwhelmed with nostalgia for anything from Generations I or II.

    Along with a few other choice pieces, this remains a favourite of mine. Surprised it wasn't mentioned yet! The slow, jazzy feel of the arrangement really goes well with the actual tune.

    I really liked the D/P mystery gift theme (I believe it's reused when going on wifi in gen 5).

    Here's a cover I did of it. I think it's pretty playful.

    I love the music in the Pokemon games. Are MP3 of these songs sold in soundtrack CDs somewhere?

    Anyway, my absolute favorites, which I haven't seen mentioned yet, are:

    National Park - HGSS

    The original GSC version was pretty enough, but the HGSS remix made it even better. I love hatching eggs there so I could listen to the music.

    [youtube]4ujh7lvcsRs[/youtube]

    Canalave City - Platinum

    I thought the music was quite fitting for a port city.

    [youtube]fMuhB5d746E[/youtube]

    And since music from the movies are allowed...

    Lugia's Theme

    It starts off soulful and beautiful, and the same theme is repeated in various forms until it builds up to a glorious climax.

    Secret Garden

    Just because I love the Latis.

    The Best Wishes ending is a massive earworm. Plus, Meloetta is cute.

    Although I have to disagree with a previous post of yours (IMO the best music is Johto/Sinnoh/Unova/Kanto-Hoenn tied), this... my whole world is a lie...

    Personal favourites: (too many to embed all)
    Show Hide
    RBY and GSC trainer and wild, Viridian forest, Champion Gary
    Any johto tower, Ecruteak, National Park, Route 26/27, Indigo League, Lance, Kanto(rmx)/Johto Gym leader
    Important trainers (rival, champ etc) of Hoenn also, Littleroot town
    Nearly all battle and town music from Sinnoh
    Dreamyard, and nearly any BW2 exclusive OST

    I'll post 1 from any generation: Battle soundtracks only because they get me pumped up before/during studying/gym and to have a fair basis of comparison.
    Kanto:
    Show Hide
    Trainer Battle (totally tied with wild battle/champ) the track that started it all!
    [youtube]2Jmty_NiaXc[/youtube]

    Johto:
    Show Hide
    Lance/Red theme, THE best soundtrack that has ever been and will ever be, period.
    [youtube]hAOGtJLMHlc[/youtube]

    Hoenn:
    Show Hide
    May's theme. Hoenn was not as great as the other regions, but had a few soundtracks of its own :)
    [youtube]ARxFP0c9rrc[/youtube]

    Sinnoh:

    I thought Dialga's and the trainer theme were the best Gen4 had to offer. Oh, lord Giratina, was I wrong... Seriously, try lifting while listening to this. SERIOUSLY.
    [youtube]TpHdMQ4K-t8[/youtube]

    Unova:

    Hue's theme. BW2 did a so much greater job than BW.

    Awesomeness of johto, reason enough to make it the favorite region of your childhood. Or even adulthood :3I selected the version I like most in both tracks.

    [youtube]ZrpTYN3oU-o[/youtube]
    Best starting town theme EVER, followed closely by Aspertia city (BW2).
    Also this:

    Really made me want to hurry and have the final important battles with cyrus and Dialga with that climaxing.

    Dreamyard music, a tiny bit better that eterna forest. More cheery and dreamy!

    Just gonna throw these out there as well:

    These themes are all incredibly awesome; if running into Raikou/Entei/Suicune (OK, Suicune not so much) doesn't get your blood racing, these themes will. Guaranteed.

    New for Gen 6 - it's the Bike Theme! It's probably the best cycling tune in the series, and maybe my favorite song from X and Y.

    Rollerblading is fun and all, but you don't get a cool theme like this.

    I'm sure its in here, but the National Park in HGSS is one of the best video game pieces of music there is.

    And I know a lot of people don't like Gen 4 (Its my favorite as far as storyline and in game), but man, overall I think it had the best music of all of the games. Whoever wrote and recorded those tunes deserves a medal of some kind. Palkia, Giratina, Cynthia, nearly every route, Looker's theme is really cool, their use of piano was really well placed in this gen, and the music really added a lot to the game.

    Also, the S.S. Anne theme is really good. I think its very appropriately composed, it fits really well.

    oh man I love the main riff, the one that start at 0:11 in cynthias battle theme from Diamon and Pearl, it loops really nicely and goes perfectly with the percussion.
