The repeated 16ths in the left hand are a bit much. Perhaps only keep the bass note for the first in each pair?

I don't really mind, plus it's always good to have different arrangements floating around to compare and share ideas. It's nice to see another well-done arrangement here!

I like how you kept that other background voice, but it sounds a little muddy in the low register. The bass in general feels a lot heaver than it probably should. Also, like Latios mentioned, the 16ths are a little rough. All the notes and accidentals and stuff are good though.

EDIT: The title should be "Rookie & Popple" not "Popple Battle"

Made this change through most of the song. It sounded a bit empty when the bass is prominent though, so I added octaves to beat 1 to smooth things out some and tweaked measures 9, 25, and 27 slightly to get help from the RH. Also added the 5th to beat 1 of measures 11 and 13 for extra filling. Hopefully taking out half of the sixteenths helps with muddiness
Also changed M. 20 because of voice overlap I didn't notice before

The title should be "Rookie & Popple" not "Popple Battle"
I checked around the internet and it seems like YouTube soundtrack people are kind of split between the two. I went with "Popple Battle" because it's what's already on the site, but did you find an actual source for the title?

Looking good, just a couple of things!
- Could try separating the bass line and the rest of the accompaniment, it gets a bit hard to see the direction at times
- m.26 beat 4.5 should have courtesy flats on the Bb's on top

Seconding what Insig said, and then one other thing: edit the "D.C. al Fine" at the end to say just "D.C" since there is no specified "Fine."

Other than that, this sheet looks and sounds great!
