The illustrator in charge of the teaser visuals is KEI, who worked on the character design of Hatsune Miku. He drew Kamonegi and Pikachu along with Hatsune Miku holding a monster ball. The teaser visual is filled with a sense of anticipation, signaling the beginning of a collaboration that no one has seen or heard of yet.

Comment from KEI:

I was surprised and happy because I never thought I would be asked to draw Pokémon illustrations. Thank you very much for this amazing experience.
