Pokemon Project Piplup Music Video Released

Pokemon Piplup Music Video

The official Pokemon YouTube channel uploaded a new music video as part of the ongoing Project Piplup. The music video features ending themes from the Pokemon Diamond Pearl anime series alongside animations of the penguin Pokemon. Notably, the music video also includes various nods and references to the 16-year-old anime series.

The music video, titled “It’ll be fine!,” includes a total of four ending themes from the anime’s original run. These include “By Your Side ~Hikari’s Theme~,” “Surely Tomorrow,” “Message of the Wind,” and “In Your Heart LaLaLa.” Singing the ending themes is veteran voice actor Megumi Toyoguchi, who played Hikari (a.k.a. Dawn) in the anime. At one point, bubbles form around Piplup and show scenes from the original ending credits scenes, such as Piplup at the beach and at the fireworks festival.

Project Piplup or Project Pochama, after the Pokemon’s Japanese name, is a project that started back in 2021. The initiative aims to shine a spotlight on the fourth-generation starter Pokemon. The project also has its own Twitter account and website. The project started as a way to promote the Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl remakes released last year.

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are immediately available on Nintendo Switch.
