A short snippet of a song was played at the end of the announcement video posted that day.
Katy Perry, in an interview with People Magazine, said:
I love being a part of anything that is playful and is good storytelling and has really good messages to share with the world. Now having a child myself, I understand that it’s so important to play. This is a continued extension of who I am.
I was pregnant when I was there [at the Pokémon Café in Japan] actually, little did I know! It was amazing. It brought up all these wonderful childhood memories. I’ve been going to Japan since I was 17 every year and have always really loved everything that’s been created there.
