The options are as follows:

  • Background Music
  • - Alter the volume of music in the background
  • Sound Effects
  • - Alter the volume of effects such as footsteps, wing flaps, move animations etc.
  • Pokémon Cries
  • - Alter the volume of effects such Pokémon's cries in battle and the overworld.

Battle Music

When you go to battle in the Battle Tower (after defeating Leon), battle a friend or if you go onto Battle Spot, if you set the game up, you can also select Music. You start off with four pieces, but as you go through the game. This can all be controlled by the person setting up the rules in standard multiplayer but by everyone in the other options. You can also set it to be random
