Fortree City – Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald

This is “Fortree City” from “Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald” developed by Game Freak, released by The Pokémon Company.
This is composed by Morikazu Aoki.
He also composed “Abandoned ship”, for example.

This song is played in Fortree City, a city where houses are built on trees.
It’s also the city where the sixth gym is located.
It’s my personal favorite town, with its unexplored landscape.

The song’s main chord progression IV-iv is very popular one.
The chord iv is borrowed chord from parallel key (in this case E minor, ignoring the transposition with capotast).
The darkness of the minor key is inserted into the brightness, giving a bittersweet impression.
It personally seems to be very Pokémon-like.
