Lyrics:

Batoru shiyou ze!

Hoeru Haneru Sora wo tobu
Torai-Attakku Megaton Panchi
Utau Nemuru Saikokineshisu
Roketto-Zutsuki Juuman Boruto!
Katte mo makete mo o-matsurisawagi
Batoru shiyou ze Pokemon Batoru!

Maketa kuyashisa wa
Furueru hodo da kedo
Nigiri-kobushi wo hodoite
Zubon de ase-fuki akushu shiyou!

Toki no nagare wa fushigi da ne
“Dotchi ga katta ka Nee Oboete ‘ru?”
Ima de wa Hora
Warai-nagara hanashi ga dekiru yo
“Wasureta ne!” tte tobokete ‘ru
Sonna ora no raibaru-tachi

Sutemi-takkuru Karate Choppu
Oorora Biimu Haidoro Bombu!
Niramitsukeru yubi wo furu
Happa Katta Denkousekka!
Katte mo makete mo o-matsurisawagi
Batoru shiyou ze Pokemon Batoru!

Katta ureshisa wa
Nakitai hodo da kedo
Kachimake yori mo daiji na
Nani ka kitto aru hazu sa!

Raibaru doushi okashii ne
“Madamada sodate ga tarinai ne”
Sore demo Hora
Eranda michi wa onaji michi da kara
“Makenai zo!” tte ii-nagara
Onaji yume wo katariau

Yume no tsubomi wa
Tsubomi no mama da kedo
Sukoshi-zutsu fukurande mo kite ‘ru…
Sonna ki ga suru yo

Lyrics (English Translation):

Let’s battle!

Roar, Splash, Fly
Tri-Attack, Mega Punch!
Sing, Rest, Psychic
Skull Bash, Thuderbolt!
Win or lose, I’ll celebrate
Let’s battle, a Pokemon battle!

It’s so disappointing to lose
That I’m trembling, but,
My clenched fist loosens
I wipe the sweat on my jeans, let’s shake hands!

Isn’t the flow of time mysterious?
“Do you remember who won?”
Now, look!
I can laugh as I talk with you
“Let’s forget it,” said while playing dumb
Those are my rivals

Double-edge, Karate chop
Aurora beam, Hydro Pump!
Leer, Metronome
Razor leaf, Quick attack!
Win or lose, I’ll celebrate
Let’s battle, a Pokemon battle!

I’m so happy to win
I want to cry, but
There’s something more important
Than winning and losing!

Rivals are something amusing
“You still have a ways to go before you’re grown!”
You see, look!
Because the road we’ve chosen is the same
“I won’t lose!” With these words
We can talk of our identical dreams

The bud that is our dreams
Hasn’t changed, but
Little by little it’ll bloom…
I can feel it
