Pokémon GO is celebrating its one year anniversary with another round of limited edition Pikachus scattered around the world. But not just any ol’ Pikachu. We’re talking THE Pikachu, as in Ash’s Pikachu. The same one that Team Rocket has been chasing for the last twenty years. The same one who can rumble with the Elite Four one week but lose to level 1 losers after Ash blows it in the finals the following week.
Ash’s special Pikachu will be available to catch until July 24, and you’ll know it’s him by the familiar hat that Ash has worn since setting off on his Pokémon journey.
The in-game shop will also be offering special bundles for items in the meantime. Be sure to buy those lures and incubators while they’re cheap!
