At the height of the Pokemon craze, every kid knew this song

Jason Paige reclaims his spot in history as the voice of Pokemon.

I won't lie: I can sing this tune by heart. This is the first time I've heard the original Pokemon theme song in nearly two decades, but the words come back like it was yesterday.

This version isn't from the '90s, though. You're watching the original singer, Jason Paige, belt it out in 2016. Seems like it's yesterday for him, too. Guy never made any royalties on the song, was originally paid just a few hundred dollars for his trouble, but he sure does own it now.

And now, for a nostalgia overload if you remember Pokemon like I do: the PokeRap.
