TheFatRat has combined two of our generation's favorite things: EDM and the original Pokémon theme song. This isn't just any old remix, however. In partnership with Video Games Live, the German producer has worked alongside original "Gotta Catch 'Em All" singer Jason Paige and video game music composer Tommy Tallarico for a rendition that stays true to the spirit of the original.

Paige's exuberant topline ought to evoke childhood memories in front of the TV, whereas the guitar melody has been riffed on to sound just different enough. Perhaps the greatest departure from the original is the trap interlude after the first chorus - likely TheFatRat's biggest creative contribution.

“The Pokémon Theme song was an anthem for an entire generation of people,” said Tallarico in a statement. “I’ve been friends with Jason and TheFatRat for years and we’ve always talked about doing something together and we’re so excited to finally bring our worlds together in such a unique and fun way.”
