With the 20th Pokémon film, Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!, making a limited theatrical run, The Pokémon Company is celebrating by giving players the opportunity to receive one of six exclusive Pikachu in their copy of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon. These Pikachu are unique as they are wearing one of Ash’s hats—each one reflecting the hat Ash wore in the various regions that the famous duo has explored in the twenty years of Pokémon TV and movies.
The third of these Pikachu is wearing a hat in the style of Ash’s adventures in the Sinnoh region. This was the second time that Ash changed his hat in the animated series, and the practice has become a tradition when Ash and Pikachu enter a new region. Enter your code by October 9, 2017, to get a Pikachu wearing this hat.
In addition to wearing Ash’s hat, this Pikachu is equipped with a set of moves inspired by the attacks it would frequently use in the Sinnoh region. This Pikachu also, amusingly, comes inside a Poké Ball, a nod to the one that the Pokémon constantly refuses to travel within in the animated adventures.
PLEASE NOTE: Although there are six different behatted Pikachu to choose from, you will only be able to get one of them via this special code. The Pikachu you get will vary depending on when you enter this code. To receive Pikachu wearing Ash’s hat from the Hoenn region, you must enter the code by October 9, 2017.
