Giga's Gatchū featuring Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, and Kagamine Len - Key Art
Project VOLTAGE, the special art and music collaboration project between Pokémon and the popular Volcaloid character Hatsune Miku, will soon be releasing the seventh of 18 music videos, with Gatchū (ガッチュー!) featuring Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, and Kagamine Len, from Vocaloid producer Giga. The song's title translates in English roughly as Gotchu!. The music video for the song will premiere this Friday, December 15th, at 6:30pm (JST) / 9:30am (UTC) / 1:30am (PST).

Giga, also known as Giga-P (ギガP), is a producer, composer and utaite who first debuted in 2010 with the song 流線プリズム (Ryuusen Prism), featuring the voice of Megurine Luka. Though primarily known for their work with Vocaloids Kagamine Rin and Kagamine Len with songs such as LUVORATORRRRRY!, Giga has also produced songs utilizing a wide range of different Vocaloids, with their most well known one featuring Hatsune Miku arguably being ヒビカセ (Resonate). Their music typically has a techno or pop feel, with high energy arrangements. In recent years, Giga has also become well known outside of the Vocaloid community for their collaborations with other artists and utaite, in particular for their contributions to the song 踊 (Odo) by Ado, together with DECO*27, whose Volt Tackle feat. Hatsune Miku kicked off this project, and TeddyLoid.

List of Vocaloid producers contributing to the project over December
The Vocaloid producers releasing music videos for this project over December were revealed in a post on the official @PokeMikuVOLTAGE account on X (formerly Twitter) at the end of November. Apart from the common theme of "Pokémon featuring Hatsune Miku", and the requirement that the songs sample the background music and sound effects of the Pokémon games in some way, each of the producers for the Songs and Music Videos sub-project have been given free reign to express their own creative vision. The remaining songs will be released on the YouTube channels of each individual Vocaloid Producer over the coming months.

The final song for the year on December 22nd will come from Jin (じん), also known as Shizen no Teki P (自然の敵P), a Vocaloid producer, author, and scriptwriter who first made his debut in 2011 with the song 人造エネミー (Jinzou Enemy). Producing mostly rock songs and working primarily with IA and Hatsune Miku, Jin is best known for his Kagerou Project series of songs, which has expanded into a massive mixed media project featuring light novels written by Jin himself; a manga, with a story by Jun and illustrations from Mahiro Satou; an anime TV series, featuring both music and scripts by Jin; and an anime film.

Project VOLTAGE's first sub-project, "18 Types of Hatsune Miku and Partner Pokémon Illustrations and Settings" (18タイプの初音ミク&相棒ポケモンのイラスト・設定資料) featured a set of 18 artworks from 6 separate artists based on the theme of "What if Hatsune Miku was an XX-type Pokémon Trainer". This project completed on September 28th, with the posting of the Dragon-type Hatsune Miku with her partner Pokémon Miraidon. The illustrations released by the project to date can be found catalogued on Bulbapedia.
