As part of Pokémon’s year-long 25th-anniversary celebration, a virtual concert experience headlined by music icon, Post Malone, was developed to convert music fans into Pokémon fans and took a hit song collaboration to #1 in the charts.

Pokemon x Post Malone Concert 1


Pokémon is a premier entertainment franchise with a loyal and passionate fan base. The Pokémon Company International’s was to create a mainstream pop culture moment to continue to raise its mainstream profile and grow its audience.

With a massive celebration planned across the franchise for this landmark anniversary, we needed to find a way to create a breakthrough experience that would convert people to the Pokémon brand as a tentpole of the campaign.


We partnered with another 25-year-old force of pop culture, Post Malone, as he dropped a cover of the 25-year-old hit, Only Want To Be With You, by Hootie and The Blowfish, mixed with the soundtrack from the Pokémon video games.

Then, on February 27, better known as Pokémon Day, millions of music fans and Pokemon fans alike from around the world tuned in for a stunning virtual concert experience, featuring a motion-capture version of the real Post Malone along with 30 iconic Pokémon.
