‘Pokemon Go’ 2nd anniversary event introduces a new summer Pikachu

If you need something more to look forward to besides a almost month long celebration, The Pokemon GO team says that "Special Research on the Mythical Pokémon Celebi will be available globally in the near future". Better yet, Niantic is bringing on the heat with a "Summer Style" Pikachu, complete with 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.

Niantic is celebrating its second anniversary of the hit Pokémon GO game all month. A special "Summer Style" Pikachu will also be available throughout the month.

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. For that reason, Niantic has a special gift for fans - Pikachu with sunglasses.

At long last, numerous most highly anticipated features for Pokemon Go are finally becoming a reality. Trainers possessing a gold Pikachu medal will be able to purchase all related items, including a T-shirt and Pikachu ears.

"We've heard so many fantastic stories from Trainers, and we can't wait for what's on the horizon", said Niantic.

As part of the Pokemon Go second anniversary celebrations, Niantic also announced that Mythical Pokemon Celebi will be "available globally in the near future" through the in-app Special Research feature.
