The official Pokémon YouTube channel just aired its Post Malone Virtual Concert Experience, celebrating 25 years of pocket monsters. If you’re yet to see the American rapper and songwriter’s performance, you can watch the full 13-minute show right here.
Post sings a handful of tracks – with one of them being a cover of Hootie and the Blowfish’s 1995 hit ‘Only Wanna Be with You’. As we previously noted, the original record was last seen on the Billboard charts 25 years ago, meaning it fits right in with Pokémon’s 25th-anniversary celebrations. This show is also being used to kick start the Pokémon 25 music program:
“It will also serve as the launch activation for the franchise’s yearlong P25 Music program. The Pokémon Company International has teamed up with Universal Music Group to bring this concert and more music surprises to life throughout 2021 as part of P25 Music.”
Other artists joining the celebrations include Katy Perry, J Balvin and more. You can learn more about this over on the official Pokémon website. Included in the celebrations this week were the announcement and reveals of Pokémon Legends: Arceus and Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
