The Pokémon X and Pokémon Y Super Music Collection is now available in the U.S. via iTunes, the Pokémon Company has announced. As previously reported, this is a collection of tracks encompassing three hours of music from the new Pokémon games.


The collection costs $9.99 on iTunes and features enhanced sound quality versions of the songs from X and Y. As a bonus, the soundtrack also includes a battle game music track from the Pokémon Origins animated features, which begins airing tomorrow on Pokémon TV.


Additionally, The Pokémon Company plan to release more Pokémon soundtracks via iTunes in 2014. These will include songs from the following games:


  • Pokémon FireRed and Pokémon LeafGreen
  • Pokémon HeartGold and Pokémon SoulSilver
  • Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire
  • Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl
  • Pokémon Black and Pokémon White
  • Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2

    Ooh. I can’t wait for the BW and B2W2 soundtracks! But, no 8-Bit?

    • Grape Monet

      There was an official CD release of the old Red and Blue soundtrack sometime before the turn of the millennium, but only in Japan, and the soundtrack has long since gone out of print. Some of the original music is available on the FireRed and LeafGreen soundtrack, though. Gold and Silver never received an official sountrack release, but all the 8-bit versions of the HeartGold and SoulSilver music are included in the official soundtrack release, though they’re not necessarily the exact same songs that the original games had.

    Black 2 and White 2 have the extra music from Emerald and Platinum! which finally got an official release! I found this out last month…. so slow :(
    Although I really want to own them physically someday.

    Give me R/B/Y and G/S/C for 5 bucks a pop and you got yourself a sale

    It’d be nice if they’d sell the physical CD here in NA like Japan is getting, instead of just compressed iTunes garbage. Just goes to show the standard of quality they set for us.

      Game soundtrack CDs, in addition to being more expensive to manufacture and distribute, typically don’t sell well enough in North America to justify the costs. Many have tried before, and companies like Sumthin Else keep putting out (Western) soundtracks, but there isn’t a lot of money in it.

        I don’t think CDs are really that expensive to produce. Hell, we can burn them at home. They just don’t sell anymore because of iTunes and YouTube. There’s no point is reserving shelf space for them. It’s the standard of quality we’ve set for ourselves.

        Even an avid Pokemon fan like me will not buy them unless they’re not available anywhere else, to be brutally honest.

  • Yes! =^_^=

    Original soundtrack untouched plz, since the japanese cd version is getting hard to find.

  • TheGioG

    Pokemon Company, please take all of my Pokedollars JUST for Professor Sycamore’s sexy French theme song.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    no physical CD with artbook? lame

  • NightzeroAX

    Wish there was an official soundtrack for Colosseum. It had great music in addition to the RSE battle remixes.
