The Lyrics

Part of my "World Go Boom" self-challenge. This is based on the full version (so it has the "I'd risk it all" bridge and Kanye West's bits). I've been playing Pokémon a lot recently, so yeah.
I've got a lotta time
That I'm gonna waste
I think I'll play a game (game)
Occupied for days
I'll be trainin'
And levelin'
Up my breth'ren
On my Game bo-o-o-o-oy
It's called Pokémo-o-on
Up in the Safari Zone
Or the road called Victory
Beatin' all the trainers
Cause my 'mons are all level 80
Some people say they're aliens
But I do not care a jot
All I want is all of them
Common and highly saught

Designs are int'resting
Some look like a devil
Others based on angels
Think your Magnemite's king?
Disadvantaged typing
You I will be firing

This game that I play
Quite unlike the others
Zelda or platformers
Pointless, you might say?
I just caught a Staryu

Set in a whole 'nother world
Japanese locations
Though kinda revised
Hoenn to Sinnoh
I play this all the time

Easy, e-e-easy
You think you're good with Flying?
You I will be icin'
Face me, f-f-face me
It's super effective
Your poor Pidgey won't live
They look quite alien
But still they're awesome
Yeah, I'mma trippin' balls
I gotta catch 'em all

You try Supersonic?
I'm too fast for that stuff
And my stats are too buffed
I've got Milotic
No more useless Feebas

You've got Onix? I'll use Surf
I took down Team Rocket
Those Team Plasma guys
Just PETA for 'mons
'Bout as threatening, right?

Beat me, b-b-beat me
Buddy, you must be joking
To bring out that Koffing
Face me, f-f-face me
You've got a Seviper
That won't hurt my Scizor
They might be sapient
They'll still fight for fun
Yeah, I'mma trippin' balls
I gotta catch 'em all

Party's all high level
Ev'ry fight's no trouble
Gym leaders or the champ
I ride a bike cause I want to
When I captured a Mewtwo
I called him CaptnPants

I'm buyin' truckloads of balls
Five professors wanna give me a call
Doin' errands for them, achieve 'em all
Forty badges, bitch, I'm in the Fame Hall
You've got Torchic, get your ass kicked
By my Mudkip, it's all a cinch
I'mma defeat you, with my Pikachu
I'll take your cash from you, cause you couldn't beat my Mew

Fight me, f-f-fight me
Elite Four, I can handle
You can't hold a candle
To me, t-t-to me
Ev'ry game, I've beaten
Rare Candies, I've eaten
I've all Eeveelutions
Yes, ev'ry damn one
Yeah, I'mma trippin' balls
I gotta catch 'em all

I gotta catch 'em all
I gotta catch 'em all

They look like aliens
But still they're awesome
Yeah, I'mma trippin' balls
I gotta catch 'em all
Steel types are unaffected by Poison types, which is why Seviper (a Poison type) wouldn't do shit to a Scizor (a Bug/Steel type). And Captain Pants is abbreviated as CaptnPants because Pokémon nicknames can only be 10 characters. "Eeveelutions" is the fan nickname for the evolutions of Eevee (it's got far). The repeated use of "trippin' balls" is from this comic. A Rare Candy immediately levels up one of your 'mons.
