A Pokémon Presents video presentation will be streamed later today—at 3:00 p.m. GMT on the official Pokémon YouTube channel.
Fans can look forward to approximately 20 minutes of Pokémon news.
Separately, in anticipation of the Pokémon Day virtual concert on Sunday, February 28, Post Malone has released a cover of Hootie and the Blowfish’s smash 1995 hit “Only Wanna Be with You” – appropriately dubbed the “Pokémon 25 Version”. The original record was last on the Billboard charts 25 years ago and Post recorded his version to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of Pokémon.
The song will be included as part of Post’s headlining appearance in the Pokémon Day virtual concert which begins promptly at 00:00 GMT on February 28 (7:00 p.m. EST / 4:00 p.m. PST on February 27), and can be viewed for free on the official Pokémon YouTube and Twitch channels, and on Pokémon’s 25th anniversary website.
In the meantime, fans can find links to the song here.
In addition to this exciting news, starting today, Trainers will have the opportunity to add a special Pikachu to the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield video games by using a special password.
In keeping with the music theme for this year’s celebration of Pokémon’s 25th anniversary, this Pikachu knows the move Sing, which Pikachu can’t ordinarily learn.
