Japanese Kanji Japanese Rōmaji English Translation
(ポケモン ゲットだぜーッ!)

たとえ 火の中 水の中 草の中 森の中
土の中 雲の中 あのコのスカートの中

なかなか なかなか
なかなか なかなか 大変だけど
かならずGETだぜ!
ポケモンGETだぜ!
(Pokémon getto da zē!)

Tatoe hi no naka mizu no naka kusa no naka mori no naka
Tsuchi no naka kumo no naka ano kono sukāto no naka

Nakanaka nakanaka
Nakanaka nakanaka taihen dakedo
Kanarazu get da ze!
Pokémon get da ze!
(I'll get you, Pokémon!)

Even if in fire, in water, in grass, in forests

In ground, in clouds, in that girl's skirt

It's very, very,
Very, very difficult but
I'm sure I'll get you!
I'll get you, Pokémon!

マサラタウンに さよならバイバイ
オレはこいつと 旅に出る
きたえたワザで 勝ちまくり
仲間をふやして 次の町へ
Masara taun ni sayonara baibai
Ore wa koitsuto tabi ni deru
Kitaeta waza de kachimakuri
Nakama o fuyashite tsugi no machi e
Farewell, bye-bye, Masara Town
I'm leaving on a journey with him
Racking up wins with the moves we've trained
Making friends, and then off to the next city
いつもいつでも うまくゆくなんて
保証はどこにも ないけど
いつでもいつも ホンキで生きてる
こいつたちがいる

ああ あこがれの ポケモンマスターに
なりたいな ならなくちゃ
ゼッタイなってやるーッ!
Itsumo itsudemo umaku yuku nante
Hoshō wa doko ni mo nai kedo
Itsudemo itsumo honki de ikiteru
Koitsutachi ga iru

Aa akogareno Pokémon masutā ni
Naritai na naranakucha
Zettai natte yarū!
Always and forever doing well
Though there's no guarantee of that...
Forever and always, I'll live true
Because they're here

Ah! I long to be a Pokémon Master
I want to be, I have to be
I know I'll be one!
