With the latest announcement of Generation X & Y earlier this week, now seems a good a time as any to launch this exciting new project.

Over the course of the next few months I am inviting artists to submit songs and poems based on a very specific theme.  This theme is, of course, the greatest creation of the 20th century…POKÉMON.

This is a call out to musicians and poets across the world.  If you want to write, or indeed already have, a song or poem about the massive life-affirming franchise, please get in touch.

They can be autobiographical, about your experiences in the real world with Pokémon, or fictional based solely in the Pokémon world of the games, cartoon, cards or comics.  About any generation, from any perspective, about specific Pokémon, an event, a place or even an ode to hyper beam.  Or just about being the very best.

The intention is probably to create a free bandcamp album of songs and recorded poetry that anyone in the world can download, share and enjoy.
