A while ago The Pokémon Company confirmed a series of promotions to celebrate the upcoming release of Pokémon The Movie: I Choose You in the West. One of the announcements was the distribution of Pikachu in various hats, accounting for multiple regions; the kicker is that you can only choose one from six.

The first 'Original Hat' Pikachu is now available - in Pokémon Sun and Moon you select Mystery Gift on the menu, then Receive Gift; here you input the code PIKACHU20. You can only redeem the code once, so if you want a different hat you'll need to wait until the relevant week. Details are below.

  • 9/19/17 – 9/25/17: Original hat (Kanto and Johto regions)
  • 9/26/17 – 10/2/17: Hoenn region hat
  • 10/3/17 – 10/9/17: Sinnoh region hat
  • 10/10/17 – 10/16/17: Unova region hat
  • 10/17/17 – 10/23/17: Kalos region hat
  • 10/24/17 – 10/30/17: Alola region hat

As for the capabilities of this first Pikachu, they're below.
