Pokémon GO – Pokémon Day

In order to celebrate Pokémon Day (February 27th) and the 22nd Anniversary of the Pokémon series, a special Pikachu wearing a party hat is now appearing in-game. It’s the same one that appeared last year, but with one major difference: it knows Present, a move it normally doesn’t have. Also, when you catch one, you get x3 the usual amount of Stardust. You have until February 28th 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM GMT / 10PM CET to get it.

But that’s not all: two special outfits are now available for purchase in the in-game store, using Coins. They’re based on Red and Leaf from Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen.
