I remember the first time I entered the Game Corner in Veilstone City in Pokémon Pearl and heard this song:
Wait for it… waaaait for it…. BAM!
It’s a hardcore and stupendously awesome remix of the original Pokémon Red/Green/Blue/Yellow Game Corner theme!
It’s my favourite track in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. This excellent homage to the roots made my chest swell due to a huge nostalgia injection and the silent feeling of superiority when I thought “I got the reference. Yes I did, ’cause I’ve been around long enough compared to the kids that play the games these days!”.
“I’m among the Pokémon Elite.”
