Pokémon’s 25th Anniversary is right around the corner, and for “Pokémon Day” — February 27, the release date for the original Pokémon Red and Green in Japan — Pokémon is hosting a virtual music concert in celebration, and it’s being headlined by none other than Post Malone.
To coincide with this concert, The Pokémon Company International will distribute a Mystery Gift code unlocking a special event Pikachu that knows the move Sing, a move which can’t normally be learned by Pikachu. This distribution starts on February 25, 2021.
The 25th Anniversary of Pokémon is this year, 2021. It’s almost been 25 years since it was first released in Japan in February 1996, and to celebrate this quarter-century milestone, The Pokémon Company International has announced a special music partnership, several lines of merchandise, and special collections of Pokémon TCG oversized cards featuring the eight generations of starter Pokémon cards in glorious oversized versions.
