So I was thinking about what the national anthem would be like in the Pokemon World, and IMMEDIATELY, I’m talking IMMEDIATELY, an entire cinematic masterpiece began to play in my head:

It’s the Indigo Pokemon League.

“Please rise for your national anthem.”

The Pokemon world’s equivalent of Adele walks out into the center of the field. Everyone removes their hats. The Champions–Paul, Iris, Ash, and Leaf–stand and place their hands over their heart as the singer begins:

“I WANNA BE THE VERY BEST

LIKE NO ONE EVER WAS

TO CATCH THEM IS MY REAL TEST

TO TRAIN THEM IS MY CAAAAAAAUSE”
