The Rivals

A Japanese anime opening. Note: This is the English translation. (I'll get you, Pokémon!)


Let's battle!


Roar, Splash, Fly

Tri Attack, Megaton Punch!

Sing, Rest, Psychic

Skull Bash, Thunderbolt!

Win or lose, I'll celebrate

Let's battle, a Pokémon battle!


It's so disappointing to lose

I'm trembling, but,

My clenched fist loosens

I wipe the sweat on my jeans, so let's shake hands!


Isn't the flow of time mysterious?

"Do you remember who won?"

Now look!

I can laugh as I talk with you

"Let's forget it!" said while playing dumb

Those are my rivals

Full Version

Let's battle!


Roar, Splash, Fly

Tri Attack, Megaton Punch!

Sing, Rest, Psychic

Skull Bash, Thunderbolt!

Win or lose, I'll celebrate

Let's battle, a Pokémon battle!


It's so disappointing to lose

I'm trembling, but,

My clenched fist loosens

I wipe the sweat on my jeans, so let's shake hands!


Isn't the flow of time mysterious?

"Do you remember who won?"

Now look!

I can laugh as I talk with you

"Let's forget it!" said while playing dumb

Those are my rivals


Double-Edge, Karate Chop

Aurora Beam, Hydro Pump!

Glare, Metronome

Razor Leaf, Quick Attack!

Win or lose, I'll celebrate

Let's battle, a Pokémon battle!


I'm so happy to win

I want to cry, but

Both winning and losing are important

There must be something to it!


Rivals are something amusing

"You still have a ways to go before you're grown!"

You see, look!

Because the road we've chosen, is the same

"I won't lose!" With these words

We can talk of our identical dreams


The bud that is our dreams

Hasn't changed, but

Little by little it'll bloom...

I can feel it
