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 fourth of these Pikachu is wearing a hat in the style of Ash’s adventures in the Unova region. Ash’s Poké Ball-centric fashion sense continues with this hat, which looks similar to his original hat but with a blue Poké Ball on its front. Enter your code by tomorrow, October 16, 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 Unova 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 Unova region, you must enter the code between 0:00 UTC on October 10 and 23:59 UTC on October 16, 2017.
