What VSTs do modern Pokémon games use? (Unless they used live instruments, I don't know)

So I know that older Pokémon games used soundfonts for their music, but starting in Gen 6, they started (I think) using VSTs.

My question is this: If the newer games use VSTs, what VSTs do they use? And they're expensive VSTs, how would I be able to replicate them in a program like, say, Garageband?
