A Hatsune Miku Pokemon collaboration has been announced, involving Snow Miku and Alolan Vulpix. At the 71st Sapporo Snow Festival between February 4-11, 2020, people will be able to see snow sculptures of the two characters, visit a Pokemon Center branch office, and buy exclusive items with both characters on them.

The snow sculptures will feature the designs for the 2020 Snow Miku and an Alolan Vulpix in a matching cape. Both will be at the Snow Festival Odori site. Concept art of the Alolan Vulpix was shared on the official Snow Miku 2020 website.
As for the merchandise, the Pokemon Center Sapporo branch will appear at Odori during the duration of the Sapporo Snow Festival. Products with an image designed by Naoki Saito will be sold at the event. It shows Snow Miku dressed as a band leader, with Alolan Vulpix by her side. Saito has been designing art for Pokemon Trading Card Game cards since 2009, beginning with the HeartGold and SoulSilver expansion. You can see examples of his work at his official Pixiv and Twitter accounts.
This isn’t be the first time a Hatsune Miku Pokemon team-up has happened. At Sapporo’s Yosakoi Soran Festival in 2019, a person in the Snow Miku mascot costume danced with people in the Vulpix and Alolan Vulpix costumes to “Gohatto Disco.”
The Sapporo Snow Festival will be held February 4-11, 2020 in Japan.
