  • Music Video for Yaffle’s ‘Grown (feat. sorane & yama)’ from Pokemon 25th Anniversary Album Released

    17.December.2021 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    On Pokemon Day, February 27, 2021, the music program P25 Music was launched with ‘P25 Music Presents: Post Malone Virtual Concert Experience.’ In October, ‘Pokemon 25: The Album’ was released featuring top musical artists from around the world celebrating the anniversary of the beloved series. Two songs produced by Yaffle, who represented Japan in the project, were released as digital singles in November. 

     

    The single ‘Reconnect/Grown’ features four tracks and includes ‘Reconnect,’ sung in English by Daichi Yamamoto and AAAMYYY, and ‘Grown,’ sung in Japanese by sorane and Yama, as well as instrumental tracks. The two songs sample sounds from Pokemon games, including the opening music for Pokemon Red and Green. The songs Reconnect and Grown were also named with Red and Green in mind. Now, the music video for Grown has been released.

     

    Pokémon 25: Yaffle – Grown (feat. sorane & yama)

     

    The music video also includes sorane and yama, with sorane existing in the real world and yama in a fictional one. The concept for the video was to connect with the time of Pokemon’s original release in 1996. 

     

    The video itself was shot with a drone, and those who pay attention can see a number of homages to Pokemon all over. Childhood photos were provided by sorane, giving a personal touch.

     

    Comment from sorane

    The first Pokemon game I ever played was Pokemon Diamond, so this song really moved me. There are so many Easter eggs in this song, including the names of Pokemon’s moves–listen carefully to catch them all! My own love for Pokemon and the harmonies with yama’s voice come together to make something really powerful. The music video features drone shots indoors, family scenes from the 1990s, and Pokemon items scattered all over. Please enjoy!

     

    Comment from yama

    I’ve loved Pokemon since I was a kid, both the anime and the games. It has always been a part of my life. I really love how this video was shot with a drone–I was on the edge of my seat as it flew around me. It’s really cool and powerful, so please enjoy it!

    The Pokémon hand creams have been introduced as Pokémon gift cosmetics since 2018, with a maximum of six different Pokémon each year, but there were many requests for other Pokémon hand creams, so for the 2021 edition, 30 different Pokémon hand creams were produced. The lineup includes Pikachu and Kabigon, which have been part of the series for a long time, as well as new Pokémon that are appearing in the series for the first time, making it a perfect gift for yourself or your friends.

     

    The colors have been reformulated from the previous trend-conscious design colors. The background colors are designed to represent each Pokémon’s type.

     

    The Pokémon hand cream is formulated with Vaseline, shea butter, ceramide, and argan oil. The hand cream has a refreshing soap scent and is smooth to use, yet moisturizing. It can be used to care for areas of concern and fingertips to prevent rough and dry skin due to the increased number of hand washing and sanitizing. It will surely help you take care of your hands and fingers while enjoying Pokémon with children!
