Blue EP featuring remixes by ZHU out today, plus new collaboration details
The Pokémon Company International and Universal Music Group have announced the global availability of Pokémon 25: The Blue EP with remixes from the GRAMMY-nominated recording artist ZHU. Following the recent release of Pokémon 25: The Red EP, this new version features remixes of songs by Vince Staples, Mabel and Cyn. Additional details of these artists’ collaboration with Pokémon as part of the P25 Music program were also announced, including an upcoming collection of ZHU merchandise and a behind-the-scenes “Evolution of a Song” video series.
“ZHU’s remixes for Pokémon 25: The Blue EP are a special component of the P25 Music program. Its alternate versions of songs from The Red EP allow music fans to celebrate part of Pokémon history while enjoying something completely new and different. Pokémon fans will especially appreciate the sound effects of classic Pokémon video games in some of its tracks. ZHU’s mastery of the remix and unique sound, coupled with the fantastic original songs, continues to expand the range of incredible global artists who have come together to help us celebrate 25 years of Pokémon.

“I had a great time designing a collection for my merch collaboration with Pokémon. As a lifelong Pokémon fan, I wanted to bring a flash of the 90s back into fashion today. Of course, I had to incorporate my favorite Gengar Pokémon. I can’t wait for my fans to see this unique line and I’m so glad they hear my new mixes too.
