When Pikachu has nicer sunglasses than we do.

Recent revelations tell of Celebi: a special Mythical Pokemon whom we will be finding more about very soon. Pikachu with a new straw hat and sunglasses to illustrate the “Summer Style” theme will also be available. The adorable summer fun ready Pikachu is available now globally until July 31.Niantic, in a blog celebrating the game’s second birthday disclosed that this access would be possible through the game’s Special Research feature but no further details are available on this at the moment.

For players who have a gold Pikachu Fan medal, new Pikachu Fan avatar items will also be available, including a t-shirt and Pikachu ears.

This special Pikachu follows the recent announcement that Squirtle wearing sunglasses will be available in Field Research this weekend for the monthly Community Day event. Previous Pikachu costumes included a party hat for Pokemon Day as well as Ash Ketchum’s hat for last year’s anniversary and a Santa hat during the holidays.

Following the appearance of Mew alongside the Special Research feature in April, Celebi is the second Mythical Pokemon that will be added to Pokemon Go. Pokemon Go most recently added the Legendary Pokemon Regice.

Beyond the upcoming Community Day, Niantic will hold Pokemon Go’s annual in-person event Pokemon Go Fest in Chicago on July 14 and 15.
