Pokémon, Van Gogh Museum collab in the works


A collaboration between The Pokémon Company and the Amsterdam-based Van Gogh Museum is underway, according to a teaser video released on Tuesday.

What it is: What the collaboration entails is still unknown — more information will be available on Sept. 28. In the teaser, Pikachu and Eevee are seen running through a field of sunflowers and looking up to the sky, which transforms into the late Dutch painter’s impressionistic style.

The pair then meets an entire field of another Pokémon, Sunflora. At the end of the teaser, Sunflora is also depicted as a Van Gogh painting.

What’s possible: Reports say the collaboration will likely involve some form of artistic exhibit, such as Pokémon paintings in Van Gogh’s style. Pokémon has collaborated with other museums in the past, including the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum to create a five-card set based on Norwegian painter Edvard Munch’s “The Scream.”
