Post Malone, Pokémon Teaming Up for Virtual Concert Feb. 27th


Post Malone wants to be the very best, like no one ever was. That’s why he and Pokémon are working together! The “Rockstar” rapper is set to headline a virtual concert on Pokémon Day, February 27th, according to Billboard. The popular monster-collecting video game is marking its 25th anniversary this year, and has already looped celebrities like Katy Perry into its celebrations.

Posty told the charts that he grew up with the gaming franchise, catching Pikachus, Squirtles, and Charizards as a kid: “I’ve been a fan for such a long time, kind of grew up with it.” Having reached his own 25th birthday recently, he added, “Celebrating 25 years is a big deal, so we decided to do it together.”

Check out the poster, from Pokémon’s official website:

Like the poster says, the show will broadcast live on the 27th at 7pm EST, and it’ll be free to watch on Pokémon’s YouTube and Twitch channels. As for what to expect from the performance, Post just said we’ll have to wait and see, but that it’s “one of the coolest things I’ve been a part of.”

And for Post Malone, that really is saying something.

Are you going to be watching his Poké-show in a few weeks? We sure will be!
