The Texas rapper will be a big part of Pokemon’s 25th anniversary celebration. The Billboard Award winner is performing a virtual concert for Pokemon Day on Feb. 27. The Pokemon empire — which includes trading cards, video games, toys, cartoons, apps and more — turns 25 years old in 2021. The brand has enlisted platinum-selling artist Post Malone to perform a virtual concert for the occasion, which the trailer suggests will be part real-life Posty and part avatar.
