Celebrate Pokémon Go’s Anniversary with Ash’s Pikachu

Niantic Labs have revealed how they’re celebrating the anniversary Pokémon Go; with another version of Pikachu! This time with Ash’s hat on.

Following the release of the massive update to Pokémon Go which brought new revamped gyms and Raid Battles, now there’s a brand new variant of Pikachu to collect: Ash’s Pikachu.

In a blog post, Niantic wrote:

“It’s hard to believe that Pokémon GO launched just a year ago, and what an amazing year it’s been! Since joining us last July, you’ve demonstrated the true power of Pokémon GO and augmented reality gaming by searching for Pokémon in the real world, exploring on foot, building new friendships, and discovering new places right in your own neighborhoods, Throughout this incredible journey, you’ve caught over 125 billion Pokémon and made countless memories along the way. But there are many more adventures still to come.”

This event will take place from July 6 at 1:00 P.M. PDT to July 24 at 1:00 P.M. PDT.
