Katy Perry Collaborates with Pokémon To Create Musical Events For Its 25th Anniversary

A teaser for a song titled “Electric” has been revealed.

Katy Perry has teamed up with Pokémon to be the face of the upcoming musical events for the franchise’s 25th Anniversary.

Katy Perry has found a match for her joyful energy as she is collaborating with Japan’s giant media franchise, Pokémon. According to Katy, becoming a mother last year is a big part of her inspiration for the collab.

“I love being a part of anything that is playful and is good storytelling and has really good messages to share with the world. Now having a child myself, I understand that it’s so important to play. This is a continued extension of who I am,”

What is this collaboration of Katy Perry with Pokémon about?

On the occasion of Pokémon’s 25th anniversary, the company has decided to have Katy Perry headline its upcoming musical events being called “P25” which will also feature other artists who have not been named as of yet.

What we did get is a teaser for an upcoming song from Katy Perry which will probably be titled “Electric” as the name was heard being sung in the teaser called “25 Years of Memories|#Pokemon25“.

Katy Perry stated in the official press release the importance that Pokémon has had in her life. “Pokémon has been a constant in my life from playing the original video games on my Game Boy to trading Pokémon TCG cards at lunch to the adventures of catching Pokémon on the street with Pokémon GO. I’ve even visited the Pokémon Café in Japan while on tour! It is an honor to be chosen to help celebrate a franchise that has given me so much joy in the last 25 years, and to be able to watch it evolve in the ways it’s provided that kind of electric joy for the kids in my life and around the world,”

The vice president of marketing at The Pokémon Company International, Colin Palm talked about why they chose the “Smile” singer for P25. “In Katy Perry, we see a kindred spirit to Pokémon, whose world is bright, fun and uplifting. Katy is a wonderful ambassador to help us celebrate 25 years of Pokémon, and we can’t wait for music fans everywhere to experience the exciting collaborations we have planned.”
