Have you ever wanted to see how Pikachu would look sporting a One Piece-themed Straw Hat? Well, you’re in luck: Pokémon Go is about to have an event featuring the long-running manga and anime series.

As spotted by a user on ResetEra, the event is running from July 22 to July 29. Pokémon Go will be getting a series of One Piece content, most notably a Pikachu sporting the franchise’s iconic Straw Hat. This limited-edition Pikachu will be available to catch worldwide, and trainers can also get themselves a Straw Hat for their avatar.

Additionally, if you live in Japan, a One Piece statue can be found in Kumamoto, which doubles as a Pokéstop and will feature art by One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda. The event is being held to help support the rebuilding of Kumamoto after an earthquake earlier in the year.

The current Pokémon Go event sees trainers cooperating to complete Field Research tasks to receive week-long bonuses as a reward. The third and final set of challenges will begin on August 5 and last for a week, rather than three days. You can read more about the tasks and their rewards here.
