I could get used to this heat on my skin
I can feel every day, I'm a little bit stronger
I only wish each day was longer
Yeah! We're having fun in the sun (the Alolan sun)
Week after week
It's just like we're on vacation
Yeah! Now our journey's begun,
Friends 'til the end
Number one's our destination

- An instrumental version of this song was used in That's Why the Litten is a Scamp!, Partner Promises!, Alolan Open House!, Big Sky, Small Fry!, The Young Flame Strikes Back!, and Drawn with the Wind!.
- The credits for the song mistakenly spell "Vestigial Horns" as "Vestigal Horns". It was fixed prior to when Loading the Dex! debuted on CITV in the United Kingdom, and before That's Why the Litten is a Scamp! debuted in Canada and the United States.
- This is the first time since Pokémon: Advanced Battle that the closing credits have featured animation rather than text juxtaposed against a black screen. This is also the first time that the closing credits have their own unique animation, rather than using a shortened version of the opening sequence.
- On Netflix, only the first ending variant is used.
- A frame from Alola to New Adventure! is shown during the first frame of the fade-between to the group shot of Lilie, Mallow, and Lana.
