Details for a special Pokémon GO promotion for Pokémon Day have been announced. From February 26th 2017 from 21:00 UTC to March 6th 2017 21:00 UTC, a Pikachu with a party hat will appear in Pokémon GO and will keep the hat forever. It's unknown what the hat will look like at the moment or if Raichu will keep it

This would've made more sense for the 20th anniversary....

Pokemon go wasn't out during the 20th anniversary though. I just expect party hat pikachu to be every year on pokemon's birthday. Same w santa hat pikachu being every year for christmas.

I'm still mad I missed the santa hat one. This one better show up for me, I always use the party hat costume for Pikachu in Smash.

I wish they were better at doing their events. This is disappointing, just getting a Pikachu hat.

Pikachu is one of the only 1st stage 1st gen pokémon that I don't have, since I started with Squirtle and didn't play during the Christmas event, so this works out for me lol

But yeah, it'll be a lame event if it's just that. Double candy would be nice.

I hope they up the catch rate on these event Pikachus.

Santa Pikachu was just a little shit that effectively scammed me out of all my pokeballs.

We literally JUST got a double candy event, and considering the theming of both double candy events (Halloween and Valentines, two holidays associated with candy), we'll likely get one come Easter as well.
