The Lyrics

"Pokédices Apart" is a song off the Every Ape and His Brother album The Chicken of the Opera. It is the ninth track. It was completed shortly before 5:30 PM EST on February 25th of 2012. The desire to make this song goes back to at least 2001, but has sat on a shelf for years. It is based on a mondegreen, where "love divides" is muffled and sounds like "Pokemon." All the rest of Journey's tune sounds like a possible song from the anime series, so it seemed logical to make the connection even more concrete. STORY: A cocky Pokémon trainer beats everyone easily at matches, and then mocks his most recent opponent. As a mythology gag, he reports on how annoyed they both are that Team Rocket even exists.
[Instrumental Open]

1. Here I stand; /
Time to take out / your last Mewtwo, / Mew / two! /

Endless fights; /
To become / a master it's true / true / true! /

My Charizard's evolved; / if you don't mind! /

I will put / him in play; / and win this time! /

Pokemon! /

(Chorus)

Next round, / I'll defeat you; /
With my / two spare Raichus! /
Super / effective too; /

Wish Team Rocket; / would just / go away! /

If Bul- / -basaur wins out; /
Your Meowth/ will surely pout! /
That's what; / it's all about! /

Wish Team Rocket; / would just / go away! /

2. Swoobat time! /
It will leave your Sandshrew in / pain / pain / pain! /

Grimer fight! /
You just used a Snorlax in vain, / in vain / in vain! /

Time that you go, / you've lost this match! /

I've brought my Toxicroak; /and Mr. Mime! /
It's Psyduck time! /

[Repeat Chorus]

[Instrumental break]

(Final chorus)

Next match / I'll defeat you! /
With my/ last five Sandshrews! /

Blastoise; / will run you through! /

[Pause]

If Butterfree hurts you; /
Your fans / will desert you! /
And Nidoran will too! /

[Instrument break]

(Trail)

Sandlash hates you too; /
That's what Metalpod will do! /

And if Butterfree hurts you; / Your fans will desert you! /

Oh!!! / Yeah!!! /
