For Halloween 2014, The Pokémon Company teamed up with horror manga artist Junji Ito—the same man responsible for Tomie, Gyo, and Uzumaki—for a series of terrifying artwork about a number of Ghost-type Pokémon. In 2015, importers heaved a sigh of relief as they became able to purchase official Pokémon Halloween merch from the Pokémon Center website hassle-free.
Now, The Pokémon Company is celebrating the spooky time of this year with a new music video. The short centers on the adorable Mimikyu from the upcoming Sun and Moon games as it expresses its wish to be like Pikachu. Check it out above!
The music video also shows off a brand new and unidentified Z-Move, as well some additional PokéFinder footage, and tying it all together is a special Mimikyu promotion on the Japanese website. This isn’t the first time that The Pokémon Company produced music videos for certain Pokémon, as they have done so with Slowpoke and Magikarp in the past.
What do you think of the music video for Mimikyu? Will you be raising this adorable little Pokémon as one of the team? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
