Time for a Pokémon Party
Back in September of last year, Pokémon Co. announced the Pokémon Music Collective, which sees musicians using sounds from the world of Pokémon to create new music. In the announcement, Pokémon Co. said they planned to share creations from a variety of artists and genres as part of this initiative. The first track released back on Sept. 14th, 2022 and the second followed July 12th, 2023. Today, the third song has been released.
The third song for the Pokémon Music Collective is called “Pokémon Party,” which was created by Chinese artist Lay Zhang. We’ve already seen a couple of teases for the song and the music video, but now the full release is available. You can check out the tune above!
