The Pokemon Company International to Hold ‘Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions’ Tour
While it is hard to imagine that the music alone would have sold a majority of the 260 million copies of Pokemon games sold since 1996 around the world, it is hard to deny that the Pokemon franchise offers some catchy and intensity-building tracks. While some could potentially see it as a step too far… those who enjoy the music from the entire franchise may be interested to hear more about this latest idea from The Pokemon Company International.
They, along with Princeton Entertainment have today announced that their official series of Pokemon live orchestral concerts wll kick off at Warner Theater in Washington DC on Friday, August 15, 2014. The 2014 Pokémon World Championships will also be held in the nation’s capital that weekend, August 16–17, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The premiere performance in Washington, DC will be followed by a performance at Philadelphia’s Mann Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, September 19th. More dates, locations, and ticket information for the concert series will be announced at a later date.
Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions aims to take audiences of all ages on a powerful musical retrospective through the popular video game franchise’s most memorable melodies. Not a single game in the main RPG series should be forgotten either, with tracks from Red, Blue and Yellow to X & Y making an appearance.

Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions is going to be a spectacular showcase of the memorable music that has been a hallmark of the Pokémon franchise for nearly 20 years. The concert series serves as a thank-you to fans and an invitation to share our passion for Pokémon by reliving some of our fondest memories. We’re looking forward to seeing fans of all ages meeting up and enjoying this very special Pokémon orchestral event together.
For more information on the event, check out its dedicated site for more information. Unfortunately this event seems limited to the United States at this time, but hopefully a successful run will justify concerts in other regions.
