The concert coincides with Pokémon Day — the annual celebration of the release of Pokémon Red and Blue in Japan, kicking off the mega-franchise. 

The Pokémon Company released a 30-second trailer featuring Post Malone heading to the stage for a concert, reminiscing about his journey.

For the first two-thirds, you'd never have guessed the Grammy-nominated star was talking about Pokémon, until he reveals a Poké Ball in his hand. 

You can see the full trailer below: 

The concert will take place on Saturday, February 27, at 7PM ET / 4PM PT, and will be free to view on the official Pokémon event website, Twitch and YouTube channels. 

The concert is part of a wider range of musical celebrations taking place for the anniversary, with a special Kanto event in Pokémon GO, broadcasts of music-themed episodes of the anime on Pokémon TV.

Players can also pick up a special Pikachu — with the ability Sing — in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Pop superstar Katy Perry has already been announced as a premier collaborator for The Pokémon Company's year-long celebrations.
