In 2005, Nintendo and The Pokemon Company published a follow-up to Pokemon Colosseum called Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness. The game was released on August 4th, a month later from its announcement, and developed by Genius Sonority for the GameCube. While it was criticized for similar or recycled assets from Colosseum, it sold more than 1 million units since its release.

This week, we’ll be honoring the release date of this game with some tracks from its OST, along with their covers and remixes. Most of the tracks are battles themes, along with a stop at a seaside town.

It’s time to take out the disk, place it inside the GameCube, turn on the console, and prepare to enjoy some of the music of Pokemon XD.
