In the Netherlands, Pokémon Theme by Jason Paige (also listed as "Gotta Catch 'Em All"), the first English theme for the Pokémon anime, has reached the 1666th spot in the Dutch Top 2000 Radio 2 list, a yearly list, consisting of the best 2000 songs in existence. The list uses a voting system to decide which songs'll end up in the list.

With the help of a Facebook event page, aiming to get people to vote for Gotta Catch 'Em All by Jason Paige, the song has been voted into the list.

At the event page on Facebook, it says that 58,000 people have 'gone' to this event, but it's unclear whether there really were this many people who have selected the Pokémon Theme song as one of the twenty songs they'd vote for, for the Top 2000.

The song has ended at a position that is one rank above Your The Devil In Disguise by Elvis Presley.
