Ash's Pikachu Ash's Hat Pokémon Sword Shield

To celebrate the upcoming release of The Crown Tundra, the second piece of DLC for Pokémon Sword and Shield, players can now get their hands on multiple versions of Ash's Pikachu – a variant of the cuddly critter that's wearing Ash Ketchum's hat from the anime series.

All of Ash's various hats from over the years – so that's eight generations' worth – will become available in due time, starting with the iconic hat from the very first season of the show. In a nice touch, they'll also have 'Ash' as their original trainer in-game.

We'll share all of the codes below as they're revealed, so make sure to bookmark this page and keep checking back if you want to catch 'em all. As of 23rd October, seven of the eight codes are available:
