By the late 2000 release of Totally Pokémon, the popularity of the game/toys/TV series had peaked. With that year's new season of the TV show, a three-girl, three-guy group named Johto was added to sing the songs featured on the show's "Karaokemon" segment. Johto makes its debut on Totally Pokémon, singing songs such as "Pokémon Johto," "Pokérap GS," "Song of Jigglypuff," and "Do You Really Want to Play." The album also includes instrumental, singalong-ready versions of "Pikachu (I Choose You)," "All We Want to Do," and "You & Me Pokémon." Though Pokémon might have lost some of the phenomenal popularity it had in 1999, Totally Pokémon's mix of teen pop and toys might make die-hard fans happy.
