Post Malone vibes with various Pokémon in his headline virtual show for Pokémon’s 25th Anniversary concert.

As we’ve previously mentioned, Post Malone was re-created in CGI for the virtual headline show for Pokémon’s 25th Anniversary, dubbed Pokémon day (February 27th).

The rapper played a 12-minute set in a variety of colourful settings from the franchise. In addition to this there were also some fan favourite Pokémon’s in attendance, from Gyarados, Umbreon and of course Pikachu. 

These saw a CGI-rendered Post Malone performing ‘Psycho’, ‘Circles’, and ‘Congratulations’, as well as his recent cover of Hootie and the Blowfish’s ‘Only Wanna Be With You’

It was a weird juxtaposition that saw the often lewd rapper singing about sex and breakups to the backdrop of Pokémon and subsequent landscapes. However, you cannot deny the absolute vibe that the artwork, scenery and CGI matched with Malone’s music creates. 

The Post Malone show is the first in the year long P25 music programme which sees Pokémon teaming up with Universal Music Group. Other artists expected to get the CGI treatment are Katy Perry and J Balvin. All three artists are expected to feature on a special anniversary record for the Pokémon franchise, titled ‘Pokémon 25: The Album’
