This song debuted in the eighth Pokémon movie the week before its television debut.

Pokémon Counting Song (Japanese: ポケモンかぞえうた Pokémon Kazoe Uta) is the sixth ending theme song of the Japanese Advanced Generation Pokémon anime series, and the 18th ending overall.

It debuted in AG135, replacing GLORY DAY ~That Shining Day~. It debuted at the same time as a new opening, Battle Frontier.

The ending is reminiscent of a previous ending, Pokémon Ondo in both music and animation. It features many of the series' main Pokémon dancing. Many other anime change to Ondo theme songs in summer.

Synopsis

Meowth is shown pounding on a drum. Then Pikachu is shown clapping in between two lanterns. While Meowth is pounding on the drum, Wobbuffet and Chimecho appear, followed by Pikachu. Then Pikachu appears by a screen, showing a Charmander using Flamethrower. The flame reaches Meowth, who is in winter, but it then changes to summer and Meowth sweats. Another screen appears near Pikachu, this time showing an Articuno breathing Icy Wind out of its beak. the scene changes to Meowth again, this time enjoying the summer, but gets frozen when the scene changes to winter.

Then Combusken, Phanpy, Corphish, Pikachu, Squirtle, Mime Jr., and Grovyle all are dancing, while Meowth pounds on a drum and Bonsly is dancing in the balcony.

Then it changes to Pikachu and the screen again, which is showing a Mudkip laughing. It then shows Meowth pouring water on the Mudkip. Then it shows a Duskull wandering around. The scene changes to show Charmander. It turns out the Duskull was just protecting the flame on the Charmander's tail.

Then it switches to a scene with the Pokémon dancing again.

ア、ソレ ア、ゲット

ひとつ数えりゃ ヒトカゲのほのお(ほのお)
冬は重宝 けど夏はタマラン
ふたつ数えりゃ フリーザーの吐息
夏は重宝 けど冬はカンベン

唄って踊って ポケモンモン(ア、ヨイショ)
踊って数えて いまいくつ?

みっつ数えりゃ ミズゴロウわらう(わらう)
水もしたたる いいポケモン
よっつ数えりゃ ヨマワルまわる
ヒトカゲのしっぽに 火の用心

唄って踊って ポケモンモン(ア、ヨイショ)
踊って数えて いまいくつ?
Ah, that! Ah, get it!

Count to one, a Charmander's flame (flame)
It's handy in winter but unbearable in summer
Count to two, Articuno's breath
It's handy in summer, but not in winter

Sing, dance, Pokémon-mon (a heave-ho)
Dance, now, how many can you count?

Count to three, Mudkip laughing (laughing)
Would it be okay to drop water on that Pokémon?
Count to four, Duskull patrolling
Protecting the flame on Charmander's tail

Sing, dance, Pokémon-mon (a heave-ho)
Dance, now, how many can you count?

It couldn't sleep, so it got back up

Sing, dance, Pokémon-mon (A heave-ho)
Dance, now, how many can you count?

Count to nine, Aron's body (body)
It's heavier than a thousand hard-baked crackers
Count to ten, even Togepi is smiling
Smiling with a friendly grin, the counting song

Sing, dance, Pokémon-mon (A heave-ho)
Dance and count, you did great!

A heave-ho, a heigh-ho, a receipt-oh
Ah lovely, ah charming, ah feels so good
A gnocchi, a penne, a carpaccio
Ah thank you, ah thank you, and a bow
