When Fox was asked to do a score by Game Freak, he considered this as a great honor to be a part of the highly-anticipated game. However, he clarified in a follow-up Tweet that he is not at all doing a key track or something like that.

Pokémon Sword and Shield is only weeks away from launch on November 15 and following controversy regarding removal of Pokédex, developers probably thought bringing Undertale creator on board may help win over a few fans back.
