The Pokemon franchise expands from video games to moves and soundtracks and to celebrate the music from the early games, Turntable Lab has put together two vinyls that commemorate the soundtracks from both Pokemon Blue and Red. The records celebrate the game franchise' 20 year anniversary and are a collector's edition with only 500 up for sale. The records also feature a Beatles-inspired aesthetic that turns the adorable anime monsters into replica versions of the band members.

Pokemon peaked in the late 90s and early 2000s leaving behind a legacy of cartoon characters, anime visuals and music all designed exclusively for the Game Boy games. The two vinyls feature songs pulled from the games including the popularized intro song. The record itself is creatively designed to look like a large Pokeball.
