The Pokémon Company has announced plans to host a special virtual concert featuring American rapper and songwriter, Post Malone.

The show will take place on 7pm ET on 27th February – also known as Pokémon Day, thanks to the release of original games Pokémon Red and Green taking place on that day back in 1996. The trailer above teases a virtual version of Post Malone, presumably showcasing how he'll look during the concert.

"Taking place on Saturday, February 27—better known as Pokémon Day—the event will be an online party not just for Pokémon fans but for all music fans around the world. It will also serve as the launch activation for the franchise’s yearlong P25 Music program. The Pokémon Company International has teamed up with Universal Music Group to bring this concert and more music surprises to life throughout 2021 as part of P25 Music."
