The Pokémon Trainer Battle Theme from the original Red/Blue/Yellow games (with the victory music thrown in for fun!) This is a pretty much note for note transcription of the original, with a few notes left out where it was physically impossible (really just the intro).

This is a very fast and frantic piece. The predominant texture is a catchy melody above a faster, highly chromatic, moving inner line, which translates very well to the piano. It's surprisingly playable as-is; basically none of the other GBC Pokémon Battle Themes are playable note-for-note like this one. It also happens to be my favorite-sounding Pokémon Battle Theme, so it's a win-win situation.

I transcribed this by ear a while ago... slowed down a lot with Audacity, of course :). I wanted to get a better take (i flubbed the melody in the part with all the long chromatic scales both times through), but this will have to do. Enjoy!

Note about sheet music: It's notated with separate beaming in the right hand to emphasize the three-voice structure of the source chiptune. The giving of some notes to the left hand (with lines to show the transition) is just a suggestion; the important thing is that the inner voice be thought of as a separate entity at all times.
