GOTCHA! (Japanese: GOTCHA!) is a special music video that was first released as part of a video about the Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass on the official YouTube channels on September 29, 2020. It features the song Acacia by the Japanese rock band BUMP OF CHICKEN, including captions in nine languages.

Plot

The video begins on the Pokémon logo, which fades into the image of four faceless boys walking along a railroad track in the middle of a forest, a reference to the image playing on the television in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen. It then cuts to images of a young boy growing up with his Pikachu, before waking up to have the Pikachu crawling over his face; similarly, a young girl is shown growing up with her Eevee, waking up in the morning to give it a kiss on the cheek. The boy, his Pikachu on his head, walks out in front of a third person, sleeping in front of a film projector with her Yamper, and the camera zooms into the sky-like setting on his shirt, where the girl is shown skipping while wearing a backpack with her Eevee on it. The boy and girl each walk through their various locales while in the background, all of the Gym Leaders, Trial Captains, Island Kahunas, and Elite Four watch them, gathered amongst themselves by their common types.

As they continue walking, the boy and the girl lose each of their Pokémon. Separately, the boy and girl find themselves in a modern-looking city, where various Legendary and Mythical Pokémon move across in silhouettes. As the Legendary and Mythical Pokémon are replaced by the main antagonists of the core games, the boy and girl find the others' Pokémon. As the boy looks at the girl's Eevee, the various player characters are shown running happily together in silhouette, with Calem stopping to look at the audience.

The scene cuts to various moments from the games. The Pokémon ChampionsLance with his Dragonite, Steven with his Metagross, Wallace with his Milotic, Cynthia with her Garchomp, Alder and Iris high-fiving each other, and Diantha with a Poké Ball – appear for the camera; Rosa and Hugh get ready for a battle with Lucas and Barry; Shauna, Tierno, and Trevor smile for the camera; Hilda is shown walking with Cheren and Bianca, before being replaced by Nate and the older versions of Cheren and Bianca; Serena and her Greninja get in a battle with Mewtwo; Elio is shown hanging out with Hau and Gladion; similarly, Selene is hanging out with Lillie and Nebby; N with his Reshiram stares at Hilbert with his Zekrom; Lyra is shown similarly staring at Silver; Wally confronts Brendan and May; Blue stands at the gate of the Pokémon League with all of his Pokémon; and Ethan is shown in his battle with Red.

As it begins raining, Red's cap flies off and lands on the boy's Pikachu (who is now being carried around by the girl) as a silhouette of Kyogre goes by; similarly, the boy stares at the girl's Eevee while silhouetted by Groudon. The sky eventually clears, and the boy and girl continue walking around.

The scene cuts to the various Galar Gym Leaders and participants in the Champion Cup. As Hop gets ready for battle, he "transforms" into Leon, who is then shown in his battle with Victor and Gloria. After being defeated, Leon throws his cap in the air, which flies through a marquee screen and onto the boy and the Eevee. Looking up, they see the girl and the Pikachu, and they reunite as Zacian and Zamazenta are shown sleeping together in the marquee screen. As the boy and girl introduce themselves, they are watched over by the various Professors, and then by all of the regional starter Pokémon, in the marquee screen. The boy and girl, wearing Red and Leon's hats respectively, then leave with their respective Pokémon, the scene transitioning back to the boys from the beginning. The Subway Bosses and Battle Chatelaines appear and pose on two of the billboards. The camera tilts up to show Mew flying overhead; as it stares into the camera, a man waves to the camera and throws a Poké Ball at it as the title appears. After that, the credits roll on a cinema screen with a girl and her Yamper sitting in the seats with no visible audience around.
