Starting in SM129
, Type: Wild performed by Shoko Nakagawa
replaced Notebook of the Heart
as the Japanese Sun and Moon ending theme. "Type: Wild" was used as an ending theme for the "Pocket Monsters" TV series in 1998 and is a famous song that's still dearly beloved by Pokémon fans today. This new version of "Type: Wild" uses the tune of "Kaze to issho ni" as its intro and Shoko Nakagawa's singing and Hyadain
's management has turned it into an entirely new "Type: Wild" that can be enjoyed by both children and adults alike.
The Sun and Moon variant animation is based off of the style of the original ending which features Satoshi and his Pikachu running on the left side with Rotom Zukan on the right side showcasing clips from the show.
