Trivia

  • The Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions performance of "KISEKI" on July 12, 2015 was dedicated to Satoru Iwata, who had passed one day prior to the event.[4]
  • For both encore songs, the audience is encouraged to sing along.
    • For the concerts held in Mexico; Chile; and Adelaide, Australia, the Pokémon Theme and KISEKI were performed only by the orchestra, without a lead singer.
