The Pokémon Company dropped a new batch of info for the upcoming Pokémon Sword & Shield expansion, The Crown Tundra, this morning. To cap off the event they showed off a music video, featuring music from BUMP OF CHICKEN and animation done by…BONES?!
That’s right. The video, titled “Gotcha!” features animation from BONES, with Rei Matsumoto (Yes! Precure 5, Saint Seiya Omega) directing and Yuki Hayashi (Eureka Seven, One Piece, My Hero Academia) on character designs.
The video is a breathtakingly nostalgic journey through each and every region of the Pokémon series, with familiar faces throughout. Everything from Red vs. Gold from Pokémon Gold & Silver, to N from Pokémon Black & White. There is truly something for every Pokémon fan in this music video.
The Pokémon news drop also revealed that The Crown Tundra expansion would be dropping on October 22, bringing even more colorful monsters from past games into the latest entry—including every legendary Pokémon!
Did you enjoy the “Gotcha!” music video? Will you be purchasing The Crown Tundra expansion? Share this post and let us know!
