Pokémon is partnering with the Van Gogh Museum!

We thought this was a fun story that paints a very interesting picture for fans everywhere (pun intended)! In an unexpected yet enchanting collaboration, Pokémon is set to collide with the realm of fine art at the renowned Van Gogh Museum later this month. This unique partnership promises to create some really amazing art that merges the Pokémon world with some of the legendary pieces from Vincent van Gogh’s collection.

The collaboration will feature exclusive artwork inspired by Vincent van Gogh's iconic paintings, incorporating beloved Pokémon characters into the classic works of art. This innovative approach aims to offer a fresh perspective on both art and Pokémon, inviting visitors to appreciate the beauty and creativity of both worlds in a new light.

Here’s a better look at what we’re talking about!

Pokémon × Van Gogh

With so many iconic characters, colors, and backdrops in both collections, the possibilities are endless. Pokémon even released a short trailer that shows what the Pokémon × Van Gogh world as one. Imagine Pikachu in Starry Night. You can watch that trailer HERE.

Whether you're a Pokémon enthusiast, an art lover, or simply curious about this intriguing crossover, the Van Gogh Museum's collaboration with Pokémon promises to be a must-see event that blends imagination, culture, and nostalgia into a delightful tapestry of creativity. 

The Pokémon Van Gogh collection will begin on September 28th in Amsterdam. That’s all we know right now, but more information should be coming out in the next week or so!
