This song debuted as an insert song in AG166 before becoming an ending theme.

I Won't Lose! ~Haruka's Theme~ (Japanese: 私、負けない! 〜ハルカのテーマ〜 lit. Watashi, Makenai! ~Haruka no Tēma~) is the anime's seventh and last ending theme song of the Japanese Advanced Generation series, and the 20th ending overall. It replaced GLORY DAY ~That Shining Day~ as the ending theme in AG172. It also acts as May's de facto personal theme song.

Synopsis

May throws a Poké Ball, then is shown in a spotlight running with all her Pokémon before they jump into the air and Ash Ketchum, Ash's Pikachu, Brock, and Max appear. She then twirls around before her Squirtle shoots an Ice Beam that reflects various images of May. In the final image, she winks at the camera before Munchlax breaks the ice with a Focus Punch. Then she and her Pokémon are shown running across a field with mountains in the background.

May stands in another spotlight, this time alone, and colored spotlights move around her. Images of her Beautifly, Skitty, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur flash by. She looks up, apparently determined. Images of her Eevee, Munchlax, and Combusken flash by.

May poses as Combusken uses Fire Spin, Eevee uses Shadow Ball, Munchlax uses SolarBeam, Bulbasaur forms a heart with Vine Whip, and Skitty uses Blizzard. An image of Ash, Pikachu, Brock, and Max pans across the screen, then May is seen eating bowls of ramen as the rest look on in awe.

The final image is May with all her Pokémon. Ash, Pikachu, Brock, Max, Drew, Harley, and Team Rocket are pictured in the background.

Lyrics

Japanese English
ライトを浴びると スイッチが入る
LET’S GO!
自信が半分 半分は不安かも

くじけそうな気持ち 「きあいパンチ」入れたら
パートナー信じて ファイナルを目指す
輝いた会場に こだまする手拍子
盛り上がる歓声に 確かな手ごたえ感じて

私、負けない! 本気モード全開
絶対あきらめはしない ギリギリまで
明日見つめて 笑っていたいから
つぎの一撃で 決めたい
リボンをゲット! きっと勝つ!

優勝決めると 快感が走る
ハッピー!!て
疲れもあるけど
満たされた気分かも

戦ってくれた 仲間抱きしめてると
悔しい負けかた 癒される時間
新しい風が吹いて バンダナを揺らせば
次に待つ大会に 向かって心躍らせる

私、負けない! 元気モード全開
そう叶わない夢なんて ないハズだから
いつかなりたい トップコーディネーター
だからがんばるの 負けない 自分自身に きっとなる!

私、負けない! 本気モード全開
絶対あきらめはしない ギリギリまで
いつかなりたい トップコーディネーター
だからがんばるの 負けない 自分自身に きっとなる!
I bask in the light and the switch is set
LET'S GO!
I'm half confident, half nervous

I feel like giving up, but I use Focus Punch
I believe in my partner and aim for the finals!
In the shining arena, clapping echoes
The cheering grows, and I can feel their reactions

I won't lose! I'm in full serious mode!
I absolutely won't give up until the very end!
Because tomorrow, I want to look back and smile
I'll decide this with the next hit
I'll get the Ribbon! I'm sure I'll win!

I run to the judging room of the championships
Happy!
Though I'm a bit tired
I suppose I feel fulfilled

After the match I give my companions a tight hug
Regrets from all the loses will be cured by time
The new wind blows and shakes my bandanna
My dancing heart is turned toward the next competition I've waited for

I won't lose! I'm in full energy mode!
There cannot be a dream that is never granted, so
Someday I want to be a Top Coordinator
So I'll try and not lose! I'm sure I'll become self-confident!

I won't lose! I'm in full serious mode!
I absolutely won't give up until the very end!
Someday I want to be a Top Coordinator
So I'll try and not lose! I'm sure I'll become self-confident!

  • This song debuted as an insert song in AG166.
  • A karaoke version was heard in AG173.
  • The length of the full version is 4:34.
  • The song returns as an insert song in DP076, when May makes her return, and is used in the dub for the first time.
  • May is seen to have eaten 29 bowls of ramen.
