This Week in Pokemon Music: 1/4/2016

Welcome to "This Week in Pokemon Music", a new feature on the blog where we go over some of the Pokemon music that's been recently released. We'll cover a variety of sources, ranging from digital services to fan creations.

We just passed the holidays, so this week there's a lot of focus on winter-themed tracks. We start off with a cover of the Snowpoint City theme from Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum:

Artist: xclassicalcatx 
Song: Pokémon DPPT: Snowpoint City [ ❄ viola cover ❄ ]

What I really like about this one is the way it combines the synthetic sounds with the strings, something that can be very difficult to accomplish.

Speaking of the fourth generation, Sinnoh's Route 216 is a popular subject (similar to Lavender Town at Halloween). Here's an excellent jazz rendition:

Artist: insaneintherainmusic
Song: Route 216 - Pokémon Diamond / Pearl / Platinum | Jazz Cover

If you're looking for something a bit warmer, perhaps this arrangement of Lance's theme will work:

Artist: Marc v/d Meulen
Song: Pokémon Lance Battle Theme (Symphonic/Cinematic Remix) With Viola & Guitar!

Those are the featured tracks for this week-you can check out these and more in this week's playlist:
Happy Listening!
