Pokemon to collaborate with Katy Perry for 25th anniversary. Popstar singer Katy Perry is looking to collaborate with Pokemon in celebration of the franchise’s 25th anniversary. In an announcement via People magazine earlier today, the collaboration said that they will be working together on a “new music program with Universal Music Group”.
The singer says she’s a fan of the franchise and Japanese culture in general, having visited the country “every year” since the age of 17. She also claims that her favourite Pokemon is Pikachu, a character whose story she “understands,” suggesting that its cute exterior masks a more feisty personality.
