The official video for J Balvin’s contribution, “Ten Cuidado,” debuted today and can be viewed HERE. The award-winning Colombian singer, known to most as Reggaeton’s global ambassador, is joined by some of his favorite Pokémon — Pikachu, Hitmontop, Totodile, Loudred, and Charizard — in the clip, which was shot in New York City. Colin Tilley (Halsey, Kendrick Lamar, Cardi B), who helmed Balvin’s MTV VMA award-winning official video for “Rojo,” directed.

“I always wanted to be Ash Ketchum and through this collaboration with Pokémon I’ve been able to live out a childhood dream,” said J Balvin. “That love for Pokémon inspired ‘Ten Cuidado,’ my contribution to P25 Music, as well as the video in which I get to be a Pokémon Trainer in New York City. I can’t wait to share my fandom for Pokémon with my fans around the world with this song and still can’t believe I get to be part of this project.”

“The release of Pokémon 25: The Album marks the culmination of a yearlong music celebration of Pokémon by an amazing array of global artists,” said Colin Palmer, vice president of marketing for The Pokémon Company International. “From Katy Perry and Post Malone to today’s release of J Balvin’s contribution to the album, all of the artists brought a unique perspective to this collection, which we hope brings music fans as much joy as Pokémon has delivered for 25 years.”
