Author: Sam Tree | Posted: 19 September 2017, 22:08

To celebrate the release of Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! in cinemas this November, The Pokémon Company is releasing a number of special Pikachu’s that players can redeem in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, each sporting a different hat based on the regions from the series.

While there are six Pikachu available to collect, only one can be redeemed per game. Depending on when you use the below code will dictate which hat your Pikachu will be wearing.

By redeeming the code between September 19th and September 25th 2017 Pikachu will be wearing the hat made famous in the Kant and Johto run of the series.

To get your Ash’s Pikachu, just follow the below instructions.

  • Open your Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon game.
  • Select Mystery Gift on the main menu.
  • Select Receive Gift.
  • Select Get with Code/Password, then Yes, then Yes again to connect to the internet.
  • Enter the code PIKACHU20.
  • Watch as you receive your Pokémon.
  • Speak to the delivery person in any Pokémon Center to receive your Pokémon.
  • Be sure to save your game.

Ash’s Pikachu, wearing Ash’s iconic hat from both the Kanto and Johto anime series, also comes with a moveset inspired by the cartoon at that time:

Level: 1
Nature: Hardy
Gender: Male
Ability: Static

  • Thunderbolt
  • Quick Attack
  • Thunder
  • Agility

While there’s no information on the dates for the other Pikachu we can imagine it will be a similar seven-day run. Keep an eye out on Glacier Gaming and we’ll keep you updated. We’ll also be setting up an exclusive page hosting the Wonder Card files in case you miss one. (You’ll need a homebrew enabled 3DS for this method).
