Pokémon Go to the polls concert

Digital concerts have become must-see events over the past few years with huge artists like Ariana Grande and Lil Nas X “performing” their hit songs on the video game stages of Fortnite and Roblox, respectively. The Pokémon franchise has also got in on the action with a concert earlier this year featuring Post Malone to celebrate the franchise’s 25th anniversary. Next week, Pokémon Go is joining in on the fun with a concert from Ed Sheeran.

Beginning Monday, November 22 at 11:00 am PST, Pokémon Go players will be able to experience a special performance from the Grammy-winning singer. Players can find the Ed Sheeran concert in the in-game News section of the menu. The performance will be live on the platform through November 30 at 1:00 pm PST.

According to the Pokémon Company, the Ed Sheeran concert will include six songs, including tracks from his album “=” and a few from his previous, better albums. Outside of the concert performance, players will encounter water-starter Pokémon like Totodile, Piplup, and Oshawott more frequently than normal. Water-type Pokémon are Sheeran’s favorite starter type, so the move makes sense. Players will also have a chance of encountering a Squirtle wearing sunglasses, which can also be obtained by completing Field Research tasks.
