Pokemon and The Van Gogh Museum Are Collaborating

The Pokemon Company and the Van Gogh Museum have announced an official collaboration. While details are scarce at this time, a teaser video shows Pikachu and Eevee prancing through a sunflower field before the land turns into a canvas and the sunflower turns into a Sunflora Pokemon.

The canvas is reimagined as one of Van Gogh’s paintings and the end of the tease shows a version of his Sunflowers reimagined to once again feature the Sunflora Pokemon.

At the moment we don’t know what this collaboration means. However, The Pokemon Company’s previous work with other art institutes has resulted in limited edition Pokemon Trading Cards that featured unique artwork themed around the exhibit.

The last collaboration took place at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum back in 2019. During that time, visitors were able to purchase one of five Pokemon Trading Cards drawn in the style of Munch’s The Scream artwork.

By the look of things, this Van Gogh collaboration will likely result in the same thing. We just don’t know yet what cards will come out of the collaboration. The Pokemon Company is expected to announce and detail the full campaign on 28 September.

If this collaboration is anything like the previous one, it will see fans flock to the exhibit in hopes of grabbing some of these cards. Not only are these cards incredibly rare but for collectors, they are truly the pinnacle of the series. Some of the previous cards from the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum collab sell for around $700 today.
