Pokémon’s 25th Anniversary Celebration Continues with Pokémon Presents Video Presentation and Pikachu with Sing Distribution for Video Games 
​​​​​​​
In Advance of Pokémon Day Concert, Post Malone Releases “Only Wanna Be with You – Pokémon 25 Version”

A Pokémon Presents video presentation will be streamed tomorrow—Friday, February 26—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. Fans will be able to find the special password in Pokémon’s email newsletter and on Pokémon’s official social media channels, as well as on the 25th anniversary website and Pokémon.com.

  1. It may be time for me to move on from pokemon. My game was missing Bea and Klara. The only enjoyable rivals were Bede and Marnie. I fear the diamond/pearl remakes will be like LGPE. I miss Deoxys, Camerupt and the other gen starters.

    1. The remakes won’t be let’s go games. They’ll be sword and shield style which is good or bad depending on how you feel about the games

  2. I don’t know why people thought Pokemon would be in the Nintendo Direct, even Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon got revealed in a dedicated Pokemon Direct. In fact, the DLC for Pokemon Sword and Shield got their own Direct. Pokemon always does mainline and even most small announcements separate.

  3. For everyone who has been disappointed and underwhelmed with the latest Pokemon entries and direction of the franchise, I highly recommend Nexomon for Switch… It’s dense, challenging, and most of all – simply enjoyable. It’s also 1/4 the price for Sword/Shield. Give it a shot!

    Keep supporting these small dev teams. They are made by true Pokemon fans, not blinded by greed. True passion projects and the effort shows.

    1. Here’s what I’m hoping for.

      I’m hoping that rumours are conflatign two different games. That they have a Lets Go remake of Gen 2 coming this year, and then a normal remake of Gen 4 coming next year. If the Gen 4 remake is in the Lets Go style, I’m gonna be so sad… and also probably not get the game cause I’m not ready for a gen 4 game right now where I am in my Anime rewatch.

  4. My response the to the presentation’s first nine minutes:

    2018 – Beta Leak!
    2019 – DEXIT!
    2020 – PANDEMIC!
    2021 – DEXIT STILL?
