In the clip, the reggaeton star transforms into a real-life Pokémon trainer after finding a Pokéball on his doorstep. Heading out into the wild of New York City, he meets up with some of his favorite Pokémon, including Pikachu, Hitmontop, Totodile, Loudred, and Charizard.
“I always wanted to be Ash Ketchum and through this collaboration with Pokémon I’ve been able to live out a childhood dream,” a giddy J Balvin said in a statement about the track. “That love for Pokémon inspired ‘Ten Cuidado,’ my contribution to P25 Music, as well as the video in which I get to be a Pokémon trainer in New York City. I can’t wait to share my fandom for Pokémon with my fans around the world with this song and still can’t believe I get to be part of this project.”
The video arrives the same day as Pokémon 25: The Album, courtesy of a partnership between The Pokémon Company and Universal Music Group. Celebrating 25 years of the ultra-popular Japanese media franchise, the LP also features contributions from Katy Perry (“Electric”), Mabel (“Take It Home”), Vince Staples (“Got ‘Em”), Post Malone (“Only Wanna Be With You”), and more.
