Video Game LoFi: Pokémon, Out This Friday, is a Wonderfully Chill Pokémon Remix Album

Pokemon Lo-Fi Album

Video Game LoFi: Pokémon, out this Friday, invites you relax with some chilled-out tunes.

Mercifully, it’s not twenty different takes on the TV show’s theme; instead, the tracks in question are taken from Pokémon Red and Blue, Ruby and Sapphire, Gold and Silver and Sun and Moon. Yes, Video Game LoFi: Pokémon goes as far back as the days of the green-tinged Nintendo Game Boy.

The album is the work of artists Besso0 and Save Point but, instead of taking the up-tempo electronica route, they’ve delivered an album that’s ridiculously easy to space out to. The opening track, Pokémon Theme (from Pokémon Red & Blue), is like stepping into a piano bar and getting comfortably drunk on Pokémon-style cocktails.

There are ten tracks in total, which are as follows:

  • Pokémon Theme (from Pokémon Red & Blue) [Lo-Fi Edit]
  • Rustboro City (from Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire) [Lo-Fi Edit]
  • Lavender Town (from Pokémon Blue & Red) [Lo-Fi Edit]
  • Azalea Town (from Pokémon Gold & Silver) [Lo-Fi Edit]
  • New Bark Town (from Pokémon Gold & Silver) [Lo-Fi Edit]
  • Bicycle Theme (from Pokémon Red & Blue) [Lo-Fi Edit]
  • Pallet Town (from Pokémon Red & Blue) [Lo-Fi Edit]
  • Pokémon Gym (from Pokémon Red & Blue) [Lo-Fi Edit]
  • Lillie’s Theme (from Pokémon Sun & Moon) [Lo-Fi Edit]
  • Pokémon Center (from Pokémon Red & Blue) [Lo-Fi Edit]

Video Game LoFi: Pokémon is released digitally this Friday March 25th, and will be landing on BandCamp, Spotify, Apple Music and others – you can find the links here. You’ll can also pick up a physical copy (including a cassette!) via the BandCamp and Materia stores.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
