  • Pokemon GO Pikachu Event COUNTDOWN Anniversary Start Time new leaked Shiny Celebi news

They recently announced that Squirtle with sunglasses is coming to Pokémon GO on July 8th, but it's not the only Pokémon rocking a pair of shades. Plus, this year, you can say hello throughout the month to a special "Summer Style" Pikachu, that's decked out in a straw hat and sunglasses. To mark the occasion, Niantic is hosting a new event which will see Pikachu and Pichu spawn more frequently from now until July 31st.

Fear not, trainers, as Niantic is increasing Pokemon storage space for players during the Pokemon GO second anniversary event.

Throughout the remainder of July, a "summer style" Pikachu will also appear in the wild.


As of press time, players have not discovered a Shiny variant of the Summer Style Pikachu, so it doesn't appear that it's possible to get a Shiny variant at this time. Pikachu Fan Avatar items will be available for purchase!

Finally, Niantic has revealed that the Mythical Pokemon Celebi will soon make its debut in Pokemon Go.

If that's not enough Pikachu for you, a selection of Pikachu Fan Avatar items will be available in the store. Niantic didn't give an exact release date for Celebi, but we'll be keeping an eye out for more specifics going forward. The developer hasn't announced when the Celebi Special Research quest will kick off, only noting that it will be available "in the near future".
