Pokémon: The First Movie is the soundtrack to the first Pokémon film in the United States of America. Some of the songs were featured in the animated short Pikachu's Vacation, and some songs did not feature in either the short or the movie at all. The CD contains extra features, such as Pokémon videos and a screensaver. When it was released it included a promotion for you to send a Proof of Purchase to receive an exclusive promo Jigglypuff card from the Pokémon TCG that lasted for a few months.

Alongside this soundtrack, the orchestral score from the movie was also released on the CD Pokémon: The First Movie Original Motion Picture Score.

The soundtrack was released on Atlantic Records, at the time a sister company to Warner Bros., the film's distributor outside Japan.
