Trainers, get ready for some great news. Detective Pikachu Returns is a new game coming to Nintendo Switch on October 6, 2023. And it looks like Pokémon GO is getting in on the action with a special celebration. Word on the street is that this could mean the return of Shiny Detective Pikachu in Pokémon GO. Sounds awesome, right?
Niantic has announced a bunch of events for Pokémon GO in October 2023, but they’ve kept one event a secret. This special event is set to happen from October 5 to October 9, 2023. Leaked info suggests that Pokémon GO is planning to celebrate the release of Detective Pikachu Returns with an in-game event. So, what’s the big deal? Well, it looks like one of the rarest Shiny Pokémon in Pokémon GO might be making a comeback.
In case you missed it last time, getting a Shiny Detective Hat Pikachu was super hard. When the Detective Pikachu movie came out, you could only find a Detective Hat Pikachu by having it appear in one of your photos once a day. But there was a catch, these Pikachu were shiny-locked, meaning you couldn’t find them in their Shiny form.
But some smart Trainers found a way. They started the Pikachu encounter just before the event ended and waited for the shiny-lock to be lifted. And guess what? They were right, they now have the rarest Shiny Pokemon in Pokémon GO.
So, with October packed with cool events, new Pokémon, and possibly more Shiny Pokémon, you’ll want to keep your schedule open. October 2023 looks promising for Pokémon GO players, so make sure you’re ready for all the fun. Don’t miss out.
