Core game music in spin-offs
« on: September 02, 2015, 04:58:14 pm »
Pokémon Pinball's Blue Field theme is a rearrangement of Pokémon Gold's and Silver's Ecruteak and Cianwood City theme, even though Pinball came out first.

Do you guys know of other similar rearrangements? I will be glad to upload them :)

Bulbapedia’s list of the various recycled music in Pokémon Pinball says that the name entry music was the basis for Soootpolis City’s theme, but to me it sounds like both of them are based on the ending theme from Gold and Silver.

Of course, the Pokémon Stadium games, Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire, and Pokémon Box Ruby & Sapphire have soundtracks entirely based on the respective main series games, as does the Battle Mode in Pokémon Colosseum and XD. In Story Mode, Colosseum and XD use the main series Pokémon Center and evolution themes, but just the other day (while playing with Ruby and Sapphire’s sound test) I noticed a more subtle reference: their news broadcast theme resembles Gabby & Ty’s encounter theme.

If you mean the theme labelled "Interviewers", that's not Gabby and Ty's encounter theme, but instead is the theme when you watch the interview on TV IIRC.

I don't play the spin-off games, but if you're talking about reusing music, the Printer theme from Yellow is used for the Pokewalker in HGSS.

It’s both.

Thanks for the information :) As to the Blue Field theme, it sounds like Ecruteak's and Cianwood City's theme to me. The name entry theme, on the other hand, doesn't strike me as Sootopolis City's either. If you want, here are the Game Boy Sound System files for Pinball and Crystal (http://www.zophar.net/music/gbs/pokemon-crystal-[pocket-monsters-crystal].html).

Although not directly related, the themes of the Pokémon Leagues in Kanto and Unova are rearranged from MOTHER's Mt. Itoi theme.

I think that one's a bit of a stretch. The harmony is similar but not identical and the main melody is completely different.


I need a new siggy, because this siggy is shitty... shittiggy... shiggy.... something.

Well, it is rather common for people to note that Indigo Plateau's theme originates in Mt. Itoi's and I can see why (there are some similarities and the same company is involved). The video at least serves as a side-by-side comparison of the themes and puts rest to any doubts.
