OK! Let's move on OK! If we're together, we'll be all right OK! The winds are changing OK! But that dream won't!
We'll go through it all for that thrill And through we won't notice The key to the door to the new world is Getting something unknown
Golden smile & silver tears Delight and frustration Are always changing faces And giving strength to everyone
OK! Follow me! OK! If we cry out in triumph, we can't lose! OK! Even if we break through the wall OK! This journey won't end!
Though I had begun to give up There was no reason for me to The morning sun burning brightly on my journey Asks me, "That much is fine, right?"
Golden sun & silver moon The lady sun and the lord moon Are always changing faces And protecting everyone
And, then, so...
OK! Let's swallow our fear! OK! A prideful move, "Bravado" OK! Though I don't know their names or voices They are waiting for me! I want to meet them!
OK! Let's open the next door! OK! A prideful move, "Recklessness!" OK! We cry and laughed together My comrades are with me! I believe in them!
A longer, creditless, 3:29 version featuring the full OK! song exists. The original opening animation is supplemented by clips from the Johto TV series.
The sentences before the chorus make reference to the Pokémon Gold and Silver games, although the word "gold" is rendered as "golden".
Although this song is for the first Johto/Generation II anime season, the lyrics make a reference to a "prideful move" named からげんきKaragenki. This was introduced as an actual move in Generation III (translated as Facade). It is unknown whether this was a simple coincidence or not. However, the song also mentions a move called むこうみずMukōmizu which isn't a real move. So, it could be assumed that the song is merely saying to do an action as if it was a move.
This was the first opening theme to fully feature digitally colored animation. (A portion of The Rivals was also digitally colored.) The actual episodes wouldn't follow suit for another 144 episodes, in Here's Lookin' at You, Elekid.
