    Hello all. There's a piece of background music that plays frequently throughout the series as far back as BW. The most recent use of it was at the beginning of Sun and Moon episode 17. It plays during the detective show the cast is watching before the opening sequence. Is it from one of the movies perhaps? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Also I asked a similar question a while back. Perhaps this could be a thread for anyone who needs help identifying BGM provided there isn't one already.

    I look at anime rips, soundtracks and BW game BGMs but can't find it anywhere. Do you remember other episodes it used?

    Isn't it a remix of Handsome's theme from the games?

    Yeah, that is the one playing after the opening, but I think the one he is looking for is from before the opening and I don't think that sounds the same. Unless its a slowed down version of it, because Looker's theme sounds a bit more upbeat.

    I wasn't expecting it to be from a pre-BW source. How did you find it?

    Whoa. Didn't realize it went that far back but I had a feeling it was from one of the movies. Thanks! Too bad it wasn't released. It's a great track.

    On the topic of BGM, does anyone know the name of the track that played when Ash's Pikachu battled Cameron's Lucario? It plays after their first Electro Ball and Aura Sphere collide. It also plays when Diantha's Gardevoir blasts away Team Rocket after battling Ash Greninja.

    Ok, so the song that plays at the 16:35 point is that a new take on a song from the first or second movie? I'm going crazy trying to figure it out where I heard it before I know I have!!!

    @ZASchwarz I just merged your thread with this thread we have for general assistance with finding out where the BGM is from, hopefully someone will be able to answer your question.

    Hi. I am wondering if anyone can help me either find or RIP the theme music whenever we see Team Flare? Example scenes where we hear the song are when Mable tells Lysandre that she has failed to get Z2, or later on, when Celosia sees Z1 (known to us as Squishy), and prepares to capture it. Other scenes that have the song are when we see Lysandre get contacted by Xerosic at the Pokémon League. I wonder if it is possible to RIP the song from a DVD, as it sounds catchy.

    Which episode/movie was he talking about? His comment only mentions the 16:35 mark.

    I never liked the Pokedex music, and was pretty glad when it was finally done away with for BW.

    The one from "From A to Z!" that plays twice, once just before the opening song (starts when they show the building Lysandre's in) and the second time just after the "Who's that Pokémon" reveal? The one about 11-12 min into "Kalos League Passion with a Certain Flare!", where Lysandre and the guy with the mustache are talking, then Xerosic calls, then the trucks pull up to the Prism Tower? I'm afraid I don't have any leads, besides that it seems to be a dub-only song. I just wanted to let others have a better idea of where to look for the song.
