I choose you, Hatachu: Five various hat wearing Pikachus coming to 3DS Pokemon titles


Last year, Pokemon players were able to obtain special Pikachus in Pokemon Sun and Moon. These electric rats each wore a different hat based on past regions Ash explored in previous Pokemon games. Each one also had their own set of unique statistics. Only one could be obtained via code, though, so players had to choose which Pikachu they wanted carefully. Thankfully, this year, things are a bit more favorable.

I can’t pick just one!

Trainers who picked up the enhanced Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon on 3DS will be able to snag five different hat Pikachus between November 9 and November 30. These are the same Pikachus from last year’s distribution event, except the Kanto variant is not available.

Instructions on how to nab the shocking mice can be found here. Levels and moves vary between them all, though their abilities and natures stay the same.

It’s awesome to be able to get multiple hat Pikachus now. However, it would have been nice if Nintendo offered this same deal to Pokemon Sun and Moon gamers. The fact that the Kanto hat isn’t one of the options is also a major bummer. Beggars can’t be choosers, I guess.

Any avid Pokemon players hyped to get multiple, hat wearing Pikachus? Leave us a comment down below detailing your innermost feelings regarding this news!
