    I wanted to point out the same thing J-Fid said below; pretty sure that the Kanto Champion Battle theme isn't actually present in the game proper, so that's a nice bonus if it's on the soundtrack. I've heard that the song was apparently present in Black and White because it was intended to be played during certain Battle Competitions (yes, I know it's in BW2, but it was also in BW as well supposedly, just unused as far as I know). So, maybe, the song is in X and Y to serve the same purpose, to be played during the finals of certain battling events. And maybe it was possibly dummied out again. Just a punt. I think my favourite song in X and Y is the Kanto Legendary Battle theme though. It starts off very innocuously but then suddenly kicks in with the Wild Pokémon battle theme from Red and Blue. Very nostalgic, haha. I also quite liked the remix of Jubilife City's theme that they snuck in! Oh, yeah, and I think the Pokémon Centre theme in XY is the best one so far (although I still like the DPPt night version.)

    In the opening line you have "Pokemon X and Y keeps breaking long after we posted our review".... you're missing the word "news" in there, unless you're suggesting that it's glitchy and broken beyond imagining.

    My favorite track, which I think a lot of people might not hear the entire song, is the Gate theme. Just hearing it the first time at first seemed out of place, but it grew on me and it is just so peaceful. Snowbelle Town is also pretty good.

    Is that rival song in the game, or only on the soundtrack, because I've never heard it in game. Any version of that song is worth it, it's my all-time second favorite Pokemon song. It defines the word "epic." Still think the FR/LG Version is the best. Also, I'm totally for a Henry Vs. Hollander battle, though I'd rather it be a Single battle, since they require more strategy (in my opinion), and they're more epic (again opinion).
