The Pokémon Company’s recent video teaser, which unveiled their exciting collaboration with the Van Gogh Museum, has undoubtedly ignited a strong desire in many to plan a trip to the enchanting city of Amsterdam. However, what could truly seal the deal and make this journey irresistible is the prospect of acquiring a unique impressionistic Pikachu promotional card.
As the Van Gogh Museum celebrates its illustrious 50th anniversary, a remarkable partnership has emerged between this iconic institution and the Pokémon Company. Their collective effort aims to create a special event that not only introduces budding artists to the captivating world of Vincent van Gogh’s art but also educates individuals about his profound connection to Japanese art, which left an indelible mark on his own artistic journey. This event promises to be a bridge between two seemingly disparate worlds, forging a meaningful link between the imaginative universe of Pokémon and the timeless masterpieces of Van Gogh, all while commemorating the museum’s half-century legacy.
You won’t actually have to travel all the way to Amsterdam to get your hands on a ‘Pikachu with Grey Felt Hat’ promo.
“This collaboration will allow the next generation to get to know Vincent van Gogh’s art and life story in a refreshing way,” the Van Gogh Museum’s general director Emilie Gordenker said in a press release. “The Van Gogh Museum and The Pokémon Company International have drawn on many years of educational expertise to create a special experience for children, their supervisors, and we hope many others at the Van Gogh Museum.”
If a visit to the physical museum to obtain the coveted ‘Pikachu with Grey Felt Hat‘ card isn’t feasible, worry not, as these promotions will also be accessible via the Pokémon Center when you place orders from a specially curated collection inspired by this unique collaboration. However, for those who want to turn this into a memorable journey, it’s worth noting that the Pokémon x Van Gogh Museum collaboration is scheduled to be in full swing from September 28th until January 7th, 2024. To gain entry to the museum, essential for experiencing this captivating union of art and imagination, you’ll need to secure your tickets online, as they are exclusively available through their online platform.
