I wrote the song "Biri-Biri" to commemorate the first anniversary of the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. I am very happy to be able to be involved with Pokémon, which I have loved for a long time. I am a fan of the series, and I have played through the game so much that I have beat it 3 times. Based on the novel written by Ms. Takeda, I wrote this song with a lot of love for Pokémon, thinking about the Paldea region, which I have explored. I would be happy if you could feel the thrill and excitement of battles and adventure.
Once again, congratulations on the first anniversary of the release!
Congratulations on the first anniversary of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet!
I am truly honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with Pokémon through music, as it continues to be loved by many people. I read the novel After the Rain With You written by Ms. Takeda and tried to create a singing voice that would make the audience feel the enthusiastic thrill of adventure and battle that the main character Nemo has as well as her love for Pokémon. I hope that many people will enjoy Biri-Biri along with the novel. Thank you very much.
