Pokemon Anime Shares Free Episodes Online Regarding Gift-Giving

The Pokemon Company and the Van Gogh Museum have announced an official collaboration.

Teaser Video

A teaser video that was released this week shows Pikachu and Eevee running through a field of sunflowers, in a reference to one of Van Gogh’s signature paintings.

A drop of paint then lands on Pikachu’s head, as they look up to see the sky being reimagined as one of Van Gogh’s paintings.

Launch Date and Details

The collaboration is set to launch on September 28. However, neither The Pokemon Company nor The Van Gogh Museum have provided specific details about the collaboration.

The trailer ends with a version of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, reimagined to feature the Pokemon Sunflora.

Prior Museum Collaborations

This isn’t the first time that The Pokemon Company has partnered with a famous museum. In 2018, Pokemon collaborated with the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum between October 27 and January 20, 2019.

Promotional Pokemon Trading Cards

During the collaboration, museum visitors had the opportunity to purchase one of five promotional Pokemon Trading Card Game cards featuring characters drawn in the style of Munch’s The Scream.

These cards became highly sought after in the collector community due to their limited availability. For example, the Pikachu Munch Promo card was only available during Japan’s Pokemon Week, from December 10 to December 16.

Card Value

According to the Trading Card price index Price Charting, the Pikachu Munch Promo card is now worth roughly $670 (£540).
