Pokémon GO Fest in Yokohama, Japan takes place From August 6th to the 12th, and those in the region won’t be the only Trainers celebrating the occasion. Niantic is bringing back all the Pikachu hat variants to GO during the fest — and they’ll be available globally, meaning you’ll be seeing a lot more of the Electric-type on your maps wherever you live!


The Pikachu variants include the following:

  • Santa Hat Pikachu
  • Party Hat Pikachu
  • Ash Hat Pikachu
  • Witch Hat Pikachu
  • Summer Hat Pikachu
  • Flowers Spring Hat Pikachu
  • Detective Hat Pikachu

Even if you’ve already added any or all of these to your Pokédex, you now have the opportunity to try to catch their Shiny versions. With a different Hat Pikachu set to make an appearance each day, you’ll want to make sure to set aside time every day throughout the event!

Good luck, Trainers!
