Watch Post Malone’s #PokémonDay Virtual Concert!

Saturday, February 27th marked 25 years since the very first Pokémon game came out in Japan. To celebrate their quarter-century of adorable monsters and childhood memories, the Japanese game series hired someone special to celebrate the occasion!

None other than Post Malone – who grew up playing Pokémon games – headlined a quick virtual concert on #PokémonDay. Just as you’d expect, Posty was animated and surrounded by player favorites like Pikachu and Charizard!

Take a look at the setlist, which included his new Hootie and the Blowfish cover, “Only Wanna Be With You.”
