Pokémon fever is at an all-time high, with Pokémon Go helping us all achieve our dreams of catching them all and being the very best, and streaming services allowing us to relive Saturday mornings with Pokémon playlists and soundtrack cuts.

Gotta Stream 'Em All: Pokémon Go Craze Spreads to Spotify

If the original Pokérap theme didn't satiate your need for hard-hitting, Pokémon-themed hip-hop, good news: Genius curated all the Pokémon references in rap and packaged them in a clip straight from your old Game Boy Color. From the child-friendly to the downright raunchy to the absolutely absurd, everyone from Ice Cube to Cam'ron has referenced our favorite pocket monsters at some point. Try not to walk into any bushes as you watch.
