The next downloadable Pikachu is now available to Pokemon Sun and Moon players

The Sinnoh cap giveaway is on.

Two weeks ago, Pokemon Sun and Moon players were able to grab the first of several exclusive Pikachu that don the cap of Ash Ketchum. Since each game only allows you to redeem the code once, many undoubtedly went for the classic Ash cap, but if you preferred the perpetual ten-year old's adventures in Gen 4's Sinnoh, now's the time to redeem your code.

Available from now until October 9th, players can grab an exclusive Pikachu with Ash's Sinnoh cap and a moveset reflective of the one used during his time in the region. Pikachu also comes holding a special Z-Crystal, Pikashunium Z, which can't be obtained by normal means in the game which lets players use the devastating Z-Move, 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt.

Here's a breakdown of the info on the Sinnoh Pikachu.

Level: 9

Nature: Hardy

Gender: Male

Ability: Static


  • Thunderbolt

  • Quick Attack

  • Iron Tail

To get Pikachu, do the following:

  5. Watch the animation, as you receive Pikachu.

  6. Head into the game and speak to the delivery person in any Pokémon Center.
