Have you had a chance to listen to the lyrical version of Pokémon GO’s Night Theme? This song has been playing in the game every night since Pokémon GO Fest 2021 ended!
The original song was created by Junichi Masuda, composer of many of Pokémon’s iconic video game songs, and the lyrical version was produced by Ed Goldfarb, composer of some music recently featured in the Pokémon anime series. The lyrical version features the vocals of Haven Paschall and Ben Dixon, who’ve previously lent their voices to the Pokémon anime series.
The song will play in the game during the night until Wednesday, September 1, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time, so make sure to turn up the game’s volume to experience it firsthand. After the song leaves the game, you can listen to it via the YouTube video here.
We can share the beauty of the world tonight
Stars up in the sky will light the way
Every place we wander
Wonders will amaze us
See the mountains shimmer in the moonlit sky
Maybe they will show us where to GO
Rhythms of the ocean waves tell me my dream is real
You and I tonight will see our worlds align
The stars alight and with their light to guide me I know I will find you
So we can GO and make a brighter world
We can GO and make a brighter world
Composed by Junichi Masuda English lyrics by Ed Goldfarb
Vocals by Haven Paschall and Ben Dixon Produced by Ed Goldfarb Production assistance by Alvin Maninding and Andrew Crilly Mixed by Jeff Stuart Saltzman
We hope that this song’s lyrics will inspire you to keep GOing just as much as the past five years have inspired us. Be sure to turn up the volume in Pokémon GO when playing after the sun has set so you don’t miss out on hearing this tune before Wednesday, September 1, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time.
