    What is it with U.S. political candidates and Pokemon lately? Now we have Jason Paige, the artist for the original Pokemon opening theme, remixing the song to support presidential hopeful Ron Paul. Regardless of your political views, it's entertaining to hear the nostalgic song given new life after 14 years! It's surprising how all of the voices sound exactly the same; it almost sounds like Paige and the background vocalists secretly recorded the song back in 1998 since only the lyrics seem to be different. Though I wonder if he's violating copyright from 4Kids, TPCi, or whomever officially owns it by rerecording his own song. It raises some interesting legal questions!

    What is this blasphemy! Pokémon related things not news on GBAtemp? 2012 must be the end of everything! :creep:

    Nice to see that innovation in regards to older things is still done. Now for the ultimate Pokémon stadium match between Obama and Romney!

    Herman Cain and Pokemon were a much better match.
