Fan Cover of Pokémon Song “2B a Master” Brings on the Nostalgia

Are you an avid music listener? Do you like Pokémon?

Well do I have a treat for you! NateWantsToBattle (otherwise known as Nathan Sharp) released a new song a couple days ago that has already garnered over 150,000 views on YouTube.

So who is this guy? NateWantsToBattle is a singer on YouTube who often creates metal rock covers from various artists and anime, as well as writing his own sweet tracks using the inspiration of video games, such as The Legend of Zelda and Five Nights at Freddy’s.

His new song is titled “2B a Master” which also features popular YouTubers Markiplier and Yungtown. If the name sounds familiar, it’s a cover of what many of you may remember from the Pokémon anime series, “2B A Master” sung by Russell Velázquez back in 1999. Quite the blast from the past, right?

Despite being a cover song, it invigorates those nostalgic feelings deep within your soul. The song of course is given a make-over, having more of a modern-rock style–much in the “Nathan Sharp” way. And like the original, it’s super catchy which will have you singing along and rocking out!

With all the news about the soon to be released Pokémon: Sun and Moon and recent Pokémon Go update, it’s the best song to listen to as you go out and catch Pokémon on your next journey, so give a listen!

If you are interested in hearing more sick tunes from NateWantsToBattle, check out his album, The Greatest Master, which features other popular songs from the Pokémon anime.

Or if you’re looking for a new series of his, listen to (and my personal favorite) Songs of Time, full of original Legend of Zelda inspired tracks.
