Ramping up the advertising for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, a new song from Ed Sheeran will be featured in the upcoming game.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Gets a Nostalgic Music Video From Ed Sheeran
The latest music video for Ed Sheeran’s “Celestial” wanders down memory lane as Pokemon pop up throughout the video. The song sets to be featured in the next main entry of games Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. While the song itself isn’t really Pokemon-themed, Ed appears as a trainer in cartoon form and relives some epic moments in Pokemon history.
Throughout his little pocket monsters wreak havoc and also save a clumsy Ed from potential death, Snorlax to the rescue. The music video is very much steeped in nostalgia, featuring gen one Pokemon and even ends with Ed gazing at his Gameboy Color before being conked out by Hypno.
Of course, littered throughout the video are Pokemon toys and classic games. The video features illustrations by Yu Nagaba, who has their own twist on the likes of Pikachu, Squirtle, Charmander and Slowpoke just to name a few.
Make Wiggle Room for Wiglett
Recently The Pokemon Company unveiled a new Pokemon heading to the game next month which looks like a mash-up of Diglett and a worm, meet Wiglett. This wiggly worm protrudes from the sands much like Diglett, but is more elongated. While it’s common to have different regional versions of Pokemon, this one is not the Paldean form of Diglett, but a brand new Pokemon to catch in Scarlet and Violet.
In case you missed it, the next title is set in Paldea. The open-world region will allow trainers to explore the wilds to capture Pokemon. Returning are gyms, but players won’t have to tackle them in a particular order, allowing for a less linear experience. Trainers will join up with Legendary Pokemon that can be mounted much like in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Scarlet players will team up with Koraidon, while Violet shall be paired with Miraidon. We already have a few new Pokemon announced including starters Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly. There’s also Smoliv, Pawmi and new meme fave Lechonk.
