Pokémon Go is already celebrating a year on the market with the new raid system (you can find our impressions here), but Niantic is adding another wrinkle to the celebrations beginning today.
Starting today, July 6, at 1 p.m. PT, and going until July 24, 1:00 p.m. PT, you will be able to catch a Pikachu wearing Ash’s iconic hat form the anime. In the past, these special hat-wearing Pikachus extend to Raichu, as well, so presumably, an evolved Pikachu with an Ash hat, will continue to wear Ash’s hat.
Additionally, an Anniversary Box, with Incubators, Max Revives, Ultra Balls, and Raid Passes will be available at a discount in the shop.

I’m enjoying this Pokémon Go resurgence. I will definitely be trying to track down a Pikachu during lunch.
