So, Katy Perry isn’t the only famous artist helping to celebrate 25 years of Pokémon. Post Malone is officially joining Pokémon’s P25 Music program with a virtual concert, which will take place on Saturday, Feb. 27 — also known as Pokémon Day.

P25 Music is a year-long collaboration between Pokémon and Universal Music Group, which will produce new songs, styles, and other music moments with a Pokémon twist.


The Post Malone x Pokémon concert will be free to watch on the official Pokémon YouTube channel, the Pokémon Twitch channel, and the Pokémon 25th anniversary website starting at 7 p.m. ET on Pokémon Day. At the end of the concert, fans can expect additional details about upcoming P25 Music collaborations.

Leading up to this virtual event, The Pokémon Co. will host some activations across the brand. The company will distribute a special password on Feb. 25 that players can use to add a special Pikachu to their Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games. Following the music theme of this anniversary year, the special Pikachu will know the move “sing,” which it can’t ordinarily learn.
