Pokémon Theme is the opening theme song for Pokémon: Indigo League, and the first opening theme song of the English anime series, as well as the first track in Pokémon: 2.B.A. Master. It is used through episodes "TB001" to TB085". It is also used in the opening of "Mewtwo Strikes Back", and of "I Choose You!" Owing to its extensive use, it is the most iconic theme music of the English Dub of the franchise.
