Typo and possible minor song error

There seems to be a weird symbol in front of the statement "The background music is Let's Go Together! from Pokémon Black and White (a theme only played at the start of the games)."; it seems like a minor typo.

Also, although I am operating under Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald knowledge here due to not playing Pokémon OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire yet, there seems to be a slight error on one of the song names used in this article - "The Super-Ancient Pokémon Awaken!" seems to be erroneously classified as a battle theme. In Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, "The Super-Ancient Pokémon Awaken!" is the song used whenever the Red Orb and Blue Orb activate in the overworld (as opposed to playing during a battle), while "Battle! (Super-Ancient Pokémon)" is the song used whenever engaged in battle with Groudon, Kyogre, and/or Rayquaza.

I would assume that the same principle for song usage holds true in Pokémon OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire due to them being remakes (and there's also the practice of most of the battle themes apparently having the term "Battle!" in their names), in that "The Super-Ancient Pokémon Awaken!" should be restricted to being a theme that is triggered in the overworld area. If the song that plays with the "Pokémon: Mega Rayquaza" theme is actually a battle theme, then shouldn't the song title be "Battle! (Super-Ancient Pokémon)"? (My other guess would be "Battle! (Primal Reversion)", although I don't know if that song ever plays during a Rayquaza battle? Apologies if I am mistaken, though (since remakes still have the potential to deviate from original usages of things); it would help if someone with more musical knowledge of Pokémon OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire could help in clarification. Thanks in advance. Fenyx4 (talk) 16:29, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, the correct theme is "Battle! (Super-Ancient Pokémon)". This theme is actually only played during the Rayquaza battle; the Primal Kyogre/Groudon battles use the incredibly similar "Battle! (Primal Reversion)". I have corrected this is in the article. --SnorlaxMonster 06:36, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
