THE Pokémon Company has announced a collaboration with Ed Sheeran with an upcoming pop song.
Sheeran is a big fan of the franchise, tweeting out that he thinks the fifth generation game, Pokémon Black is “wicked”.

Last year, the two teamed up to deliver a free virtual concert for Pokémon Go in November, where Sheeran sang six songs from his discography.
Promoting his album, the songs included Perfect, Bad Habits, Overpass Graffiti, Thinking out Loud, First Times, and Shivers.
When playing Pokémon games, Sheeran always chooses a water-type starter.
So as part of the event, water starters became more common and a special sunglasses wearing Squirtle was available in-game.

For now, there has been no implication that Sheeran will be returning to Pokémon Go or any other Pokémon game.
However, he has written a new song based on the franchise and it releases on September 29.
Not much has been revealed about the new track, except that it’s called ‘Celestial’.
Fans have been theorising about what Pokémon the song will be about based on the title.

There are a number of legendary Pokémon with links to the word, which refers to outer space or heaven.
Most obviously, Palkia is the legendary Pokémon that controls space.
Solrock and Lunatone also have links to the sun and moon, and have both been commonly available this month in Pokémon Go.
Other legendaries from space include the Cosmog and its evolutions: Cosmoem, Solgaleo, and Lunala.
Cosmog was given out in an event in Pokémon Go recently, though its evolutions are yet to be included.
The new song could be part of the launch for these Pokémon.
The mythical Pokémon, Celebi, also controls space and time, while regular Pokémon like Clefairy supposedly come from the moon.

We’ll find out more when the song releases next week.
