My VG Music Picks #37 – Battle! Lysandre (Pokémon X & Y)

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y

As far as Pokémon villains go, I honestly think Team Flare from Pokémon X is the worst we’ve had. They were just so uninteresting and pathetically easy to fight (though, to be fair, the whole game was pretty easy), and that extends to their leader, Lysandre, as well. On the plus side, listen to this music that plays when you battle him.

I had actually completely forgotten how amazing this theme was until I heard it again recently. It’s intense, threatening, it has a bit of the ominous chanting that I love so much and it even integrates the music used for battling Team Flare Grunts. It actually makes Lysandre an intimidating and dangerous foe (for a bit anyway).

Music has always had the ability to make certain scenarios more epic than they really are and whilst my opinion on Lysandre is unlikely to change any time soon, he at least had a kick-ass boss theme to make encounters with him slightly more enjoyable.
