I want to be the best
There ever was
To beat all the rest
Yeah, that's my cause

I'll search across the land
Look far and wide
Release from my hand
The power that's inside

Tried to learn the lyrics by listening. But couldn't | Reviewer: Tiidriioblaan | 3/6/14

I tried learning the lyrics just by listening to the song, but it could not be done (For me, at least). But now that I have this list, I shall learn the song and sing to it every time I hear it.

I can finally sing my favorite childhood song ;-; | Reviewer: RinYamazaki | 3/8/13

Epic | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/10/11

This is probably the only rap that I like. Pokemon is an amazing game, and TV show. I think the best generation is the Original 150, and I am going to memorize this for the talent show at my school. Wish me Luck.

The PokeRap | Reviewer: the wyck | 11/30/09

I think the PokeRap is one of the best songs ever written, the constant flow of beautifull PokeNames is truly extra-ordinary. I think its one of the most underrated songs ever,and all you people with your sarcastic "critique's" can all go to hell! All hail to Ash Catchem' and prof. Oak

Typo | Reviewer: Viktor von Schmalz | 8/6/09

Umm... Lickitung (108) - Spelled with a K
Great rap!

I already memorized the National dex, now I'll own the rap...
It'd be cool to complete the rap with the remaining 341 pokemon... I'll give it a shot!
Gotta catch 'em all!

BTW it's a real feat to make a song like this. Personally, I'm not too fond of raps, but this one's something else! Congratulations!

Another aspect | Reviewer: Viktor von Schmalz | 8/7/09

I also noticed that the groups are well-balanced in terms of pokémon power. Each stanza has several pokémon of different classes, keeping all of them balanced. The final stanza has more powerful pokémon (Mewtwo, Tentacruel, Aerodactyl) but it has less pokémon. Very well written!

A Critiqe of the PokeRap | Reviewer: Danielle | 3/19/08

The variation in styles displayed in this song are extrodinary. It's truely a modern masterpiece.

The cadences, deception, and modulation used in this piece are beyond our age. I haven't seen an arch like this since Schuman.

It's a rather simple song with a complex structure. Kudos, John Loeffler, kudos.
