    I would like to use some of the in-game music such as the Cerulean City theme from HGSS and National Park etc in a YouTube video. I have heard lots of Pokemon music in videos from thejwittz and some other YouTubers. Is this illegal?

    Well, actually it is if you make money off the videos, but it's not like they will sue you or anything so you can go ahead. See, it's striked, I didn't say that, I didn't mean that.

    Keep in mind they sued them over a parody video. You can never predict Nintendo.

    YouTube, sometime don't allow people to use music. I recently had a video taken off and my account threatened for uploading a video with music in. I had followed the right procedure.

    If you use a fan-made remix, you should be fine. A remix is considered a parody. Also, you can be sued for anything but it doe snot mean that the suing party would win.

    Thought that was an April Fools joke.

    The suing part, maybe, I don't know. But the video was definitely taken down.

    The video got taken down, but they made a new parody mocking Nintendo in 2009

    Pokemon music is copyrighted, but the chance that you will get sued for using it is pretty low. I'd still not recommend it though.

    Youtube algorithms are pretty chaotic. It's super easy to get demontized and copyright strikes.

    I'm not an expert Youtube creator, but unless it's copyright free music (or your own music) that you own or can cite that is copyright free music or your own, then you're taking a risk of getting slapped with demonitization and/or Cease & Desist.
