Leitmotifs in Pokemon Game Music?
I was listening to Viridian Forest's theme for nostalgia's sake when I recognized a familiar tune.
Viridian Forest: http://youtu.be/NPH9bT2Agc0?t=37s
and
Rocket Hideout: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kiKM2f2j_o

All these years playing Pokemon and I only just noticed this. oTL
I wonder if Game Freak scrapped an idea of Team Rocket using Viridian Forest?

Sorry in advance if there are threads like this, I couldn't find any in the last few pages.

RE: Leitmotifs in Pokemon Game Music?
There's something similar to this in Pokemon Black/White. The Zekrom and Reshiram battle theme has a part that's a kind of remix of the Route 11 theme. Although it's not as outright as this one.
