Party hat for Pikachu

To celebrate the anniversary of Pokémon Red and Green in Japan, which were the first ever Pokémon games, it’s Pokémon Day on February 27. Of course, Pokémon Go joins in the celebration. From February 27 until March 6 there is a special Pikachu to be caught in the game.

Remember the Santa hat Pikachu? Well, this time, every Pikachu you catch will wear a party hat. Always nice when a game does it’s best to offer some new things to look forward to. The update we had last week, which added Pokémon from the Johto region, was a good one. I guess we all got bored with seeing yet more Ratata!

The update seems to have been advantageous for Niantic too. The game climbed to the highest grossing app spot again. It hadn’t been number one anymore since January 4th during the New Years event.

Anyway, be on the lookout for some silly hat adorning new Pikachu!
