Rapper Post Malone and The Pokémon Company team up to organize a virtual concert, celebrating 25 years of Pokémon. The virtual concert takes place on the 27th of February. And of course, besides a virtual representation of the artist, actual (virtual) Pokémon will show up too.
Pokémon concert featuring Post Malone
The iconic Pokémon franchise celebrates it’s 25th anniversary this year. To celebrate a quarter of a century of ‘catching them all’, Post Malone will host an online virtual event. Fans from around the globe can enjoy the virtual concert for free through YouTube, Twitch, or Pokemon.com, Japanese company announced.
Leading up to the event, Pokémon GO players can enjoy a special Kanto in-game event, Polygon writes. Additionally, fans can get a password from the Pokémon Company to ‘download a special kind of Pikachu to their Pokémon Sword & Shield files’. Lastly, there’s a music-themed animated series playing on Pokémon TV, leading up to the concert.
Post Travis Scott
The Pokémon Company was clearly inspired by another huge franchise. Of course, we’re talking about Fortnite, that hosted multiple in-game events, such as the record breaking Travis Scott concert. The Pokémon Company utilizes the star power of Post Malone, but also Katy Perry, to properly celebrate 25 years of Pokémon.
Leading up to the concert, the company reveals it’ll announce even more exciting stuff.
