    The official Project Voltage website is now live, confirming that the collaboration between Pokémon and Hatsune Miku begins this September. 18 new songs from 18 different Vocaloid composers will be released consecutively starting on September 29. These songs will include Hatsune Miku with Pokémon Trainer attire and 18 different Pokémon. Moreover, each song will feature samples of iconic tunes from the Pokémon series. 

    These new songs will be released on the participating Vocaloid producers’ official YouTube channels in the next few months following the September 29 launch. Vocaloid producers participating in Project Voltage will be revealed one day prior on September 28. While waiting on the music and producer reveals, new illustrations will be released daily on social media, including The Pokémon Company’s Japanese X (Twitter) account. These new illustrations answer the question of “what if Hatsune Miku was a ___-type Pokemon trainer?”. Six artists are participating in this particular project, including original Hatsune Miku designer and illustrator Kei. 

    Project Voltage’s first illustration by Kei depicts Hatsune Miku with Farfetch’d. The iconic mascot, Pikachu, may be seen at the bottom of the new illustration. Fans can expect Pikachu to show up plenty of times throughout Project Voltage.
