Perry and Pokémon will be teaming up for a new music project called P25 Music, which will feature “surprise global activations throughout the year,” according to People.

“I love being a part of anything that is playful and is good storytelling and has really good messages to share with the world,” Perry told People. “Now having a child myself, I understand that it’s so important to play. This is a continued extension of who I am.”

The singer also talked about her experience visiting The Pokémon Café in Japan in 2019.

“I was pregnant when I was there actually, little did I know!” she said. “It was amazing. It brought up all these wonderful childhood memories. I’ve been going to Japan since I was 17 every year and have always really loved everything that’s been created there.”

As for which Pokémon is her favourite, Perry said, “I’m really attached to the hero. I know there are others in the game, but I just found Pikachu to be really cute.”
