Pokémon GO

Today, the annual Pikachu Outbreak event started in Yokohama (Japan), and this year, there’s a special event for Pokémon GO (you can check out more details about the two events in this post). And it looks like a surprise if waiting players attending it!

According to various reports, Shiny Pikachu can be found at the Pikachu Outbreak in Japan (naturally, it can evolve into Raichu, that remains Shiny). Unfortunately, it looks like they can only be found at this event, and no word on when Shiny Pikachu will start appearing outside Japan. It’s quite likely players will have to wait for another event.
