Pokemon Go how to get Captain Hat Pikachu

Pikachu is one of the most favorite Pokemon ever, and I am sure that at least one of you has some kind of a Pikachu toy laying around.

Well, today I am putting a special focus on Pikachu, or to be more exact, Captain Hat Pikachu. As we all are on the brink of a new event, named Pokemon Horizons: The Series Celebration event, set to begin on March 5, 2024.

During the Pokemon Horizons: The Series Celebration event, we are expected to see a new Costume Pikachu, and that Costume Pikachu is Captain Hat Pikachu. Such a cute Pokemon, and I think that Captain Hat Pikachu will be the main attraction during this event.

The real question is, how to find Captain Hat Pikachu? Should we hunt it down, or actually go to places where there is a high chance of encountering a Captain Hat Pikachu? No matter what you decide, I have compiled a list of my own on how and where to find Captain Hat Pikachu.

Captain Hat Pikachu, how to get it in Pokemon Go

  • In the wild
  • In One-star Raids
  • As a Field Research Task encounter

All I have to say is get ready to walk long distances, find Gyms that are going to be hosting One-star Raids, and complete as many Field Research tasks as you can during the event.

One last thing though. If you happen to encounter Captain Hat Pikachu during the Pokemon Horizons: The Series Celebration event, you will get a Captain Hat Pikachu that knows the Charged Attack Volt Tackle.

This attack, the Charged Attack Volt Tackle has 90 power and decreases Defense by one stage in Trainer Battles, and 90 power in Gyms and Raids.

Are you getting ready for the event? What is your strategy? Tell us in the comments below.
