Title says it all. An example would be Unwavering Emotions from B/W, or Dialga and Palkia's theme from D/P.

Cynthia's encounter theme is almost all piano. I don't know of any battle themes with lots of piano, though.

Wow... this must have taken a pretty long time just to answer my one question! Thank you very much!!
Yeah...especially considering the fact that I haven't played gen 4, so I didn't know much music off the top of my head...but I really like listening to game soundtracks and music in general, so this was fun to do! :)
