The 19th century English essayist and art critic Walter Pater (not to be confused with legendary Chicago Bears running back Walter Payton) said that “all art constantly aspires towards the condition of music”. As you know.
And Pokemon is no different. Later this year it will be given a helping hand on that journey by the return of Pokemon: Symphonic Evolutions, which returns to London for two nights only this Christmas.
On December 19 and 20, at Hammersmith’s Eventim Apollo, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will play all new arrangements of music from the history of the phenomenon that’s back and bigger than ever, all synched to visuals from recent and classic games.
Critics called last year’s performances ‘glorious’ and ‘magical’, and since then the show has played in sold-out venues all over the world.
As well as the wonderful music, of course, these events will, for those two nights, be the centre of the Pokemon universe, with unique opportunities to catch, battle and trade.
