Born to Be a Winner is the opening theme song of Pokémon: Johto League Champions, and the fourth opening theme song of the English Pokémon anime series.

Lyrics

TV Version

🎵

Pokémon... Pokémon... Pokémon...
...Let's do it.
I wanna be the very best,
Like no one ever was. (Ever was, ever was)
To catch them is my real test.
To train them is my cause.
My whole life has led to this.
Time to test my skills.
I know I just can't miss.
Gonna show the world...
Born to be a winner...
(Johto!)
Born to be a champion.
Born to be a winner,
Born to be the very best.
(Pokémon... Johto!)
Born to be a winner...
Pokémon!

Short Version

🎵

...Let's do it.
Born to be a winner...
(Johto!)
Born to be a champion.
Born to be a winner,
Born to be the very best.
(Pokémon...)
Born to be a winner...
(Johto!)
Born to be a champion.
Born to be a winner,
Born to be the very best.
(Pokémon... Johto!)
Born to be a winner...
Pokémon!

Pokémon...
Let's do it.
I wanna be the very best
Like no one ever was (no one ever was)
To catch them is my real test
To train them is my cause
My whole life has led to this
Time to test my skills
I know I just can't miss
Gonna show the world
Born to be a winner
Born to be a champion
Born to be a winner
Born to be the very best
Born to be a winner
Pokémon!
Every challenge along the way
With courage I will face (courage I will face)
I will battle everyday
To claim my rightful place!
Come with me; the time is right!
There's no better team
Arm in arm, we'll win the fight!
Gonna live our dream
Born to be a winner
Born to be a champion
Born to be a winner
Born to be the very best
Born to be a winner...
Pokémon!
