Niantic recently kicked off its Pikachu-themed celebration for Pokémon GO’s second anniversary, which includes the new Summer Style Pikachu and the Mythical Pokémon Celebi. Pikachu and Pichu are now appearing more frequently from today (July 6 PT) until July 31. A special Summer Style Pikachu, that’s decked out in an Alolan straw hat and sunglasses, can now be found and caught in the wild. Pichu and Raichu were also given the same treatment. The Shiny variants of all three have also made their Pokémon GO debuts.
Pikachu Fan Avatar items are now available for purchase via the in-game shop. Trainers with a gold Pikachu Fan medal can purchase all related items, which include a special T-shirt for 250 PokéCoins and Pikachu ears for 180 PokéCoins. Increased storage capacity is now available in the in-game shop, allowing you to hold up to 2,000 Pokémon. In addition, Special Research on the Mythical Pokémon Celebi will be available globally in the near future.
