A recent teaser from the Pokemon Company points to an exciting upcoming Pokemon Van Gogh Museum Collaboration!

Specific details have yet to be revealed, but the Tweet clarifies that Pokemon content will appear in the museum starting September 28th 2023.

And if the first image revealed is an indication of what to expect, then this will be a pretty awesome exhibition not to be missed.

As we see in the teaser reveal, Eevee and Pikachu find themselves in a familiar scene from Van Gogh’s “Sunflower Field”.

Their world transforms into a Van Gogh painting, and the sunflowers come to life as our beloved Sunflora Pokemon.

The teaser concludes with a reveal of a Pokemon mashup of Van Gogh’s 1889 “Sunflowers”, with those same Sunflora Pokemon.

With this being a collaboration with such a prestigious museum, this would surely be an actual painting by a contemporary master.

Early Thoughts

It should go without saying that we’re hoping to see many more Pokemon themed paintings to be revealed for the collaboration.

But it is currently unknown if this single Sunflora/Sunflower mashup will be the only painting to appear.

An entire wing dedicated to the Pokemon collaboration would be quite satisfying, and a great pull for new visitors to the museum.

And we do see two iconic characters in the teaser video who would make for great content.

Obviously a Pikachu and/or Eevee painting would be a big hit with long time Pokemon fans.

We’ll be keeping our eyes on this one, and will update you when more details are finally revealed later this month.
