TV version

I stand tall 'cause I know I'm a winner
Knock me down, I'll just get up again
You've met your match, yeah, I'm no beginner
Pokémon,
Pokémon,
Gotta catch 'em all!

I stand tall 'cause I know I'm a winner
Pokémon,
Pokémon,
Gotta catch 'em all!

Movie version

I stand tall 'cause I know I'm a winner
You've met your match, yeah, I'm no beginner
No beginner
Gotta catch 'em all!

I stand tall 'cause I know I'm a winner
Knock me down, I'll just get up again
You've met your match, yeah, I'm no beginner
Pokémon,

Gotta catch 'em all!

You've met your match, yeah, I'm no beginner
Pokémon,

Gotta catch 'em all!

I've got all my friends beside me
I'm keeping my eye on the ball
With the wisdom of years to guide me,
I'm gonna catch 'em all!
