The Pokemon 25th anniversary celebration concluded with a special virtual concert performance from Post Malone. If you missed it, it was quite an experience, offering about as good a pandemic-era musical performance that one can expect. And as cool as the Post Malone element was, it was as more of a celebration of the Pokemon world than anything else. If you missed it, the Pokemon YouTube channel archived the whole thing and you can check it out in its entirety below.

The concert, which was first announced earlier this week, started with a virtual Post Malone taking the stage in a concert venue decorated with various Pokemon knick-knacks. After he was briefly joined by a Pikachu hologram, Post Malone began taking a tour of some of Pokemon's familiar sights and scenes. The musical superstar performed around a menagerie of familiar Pokemon, such as Torterra, Gyarados, Braviary, Sharpedo, Charizard, and even mythical Pokemon like Lugia, Celebi, and Groudon.

The performance featured some of Post Malone's biggest hits, like "Congratulations," "Psycho," and "Circles." It also featured a special cover of Hootie and the Blowfish's "Only Wanna Be With You," which Malone put together for this Pokemon 25th anniversary. This cover will be a part of a continuing musical celebration of Pokemon set to roll out over the course of the year, with artists like Katy Perry, J Balvin, and more set to release new music in the months ahead.

It's a really cool celebration of the Pokemon franchise, one that fans of all stripes can enjoy. It's a culmination of days of special Pokemon events and announcements, including the reveal of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and Pokemon Legends Arceus.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      I guess Katy Perry is going to do some Pokemon related song later this year.

      While interesting, it kinda felt like they had everything about that event already set up and it was a coin toss to see which artist they'd drop into it. Like, there wasn't anything about the settings or spectacles that had any connection to Post Malone.

      I think the byline meant to us clegrate rather than celebration. Also, does Post Malone have any good songs or is it he just a pop culture idol?
