Every year at the Pokemon World Championships, key Pokemon art and the stage are designed with the hosting city in mind. The 2018 Pokemon World Championships are in Nashville, Tennessee, and the stage design and themed Pokemon are especially brimming with its Music City inspiration.
Pikachu plays a banjo, Snivy’s on guitar, and other Pokemon are geared up in country and music-themed getup in the key art, and the stage looks like a particularly famous street in downtown Nashville. There was even a country-inspired Pokemon song composed just for the event, and plenty of set pieces spread about the convention center with hay bales and instruments.
