Ash Pikachu

The Anniversary event is a seasonal event in Pokémon GO that began on July 6, 2017. This event celebrates the first Anniversary for Pokémon GO.


This event took place between July 6th, 2017 and July 27th, 2017.

During the event, Trainers were be able to capture limited edition Pikachu, adorned with a Pokémon League hat resembling the one worn by Ash Ketchum in the animated series. The Shop also featured an Anniversary Box which featured discounted Incubators, Max Revives, Ultra Balls, and Raid Passes. [1]

This box was removed on July 22, 2017 and replaced with three Anniversary Boxes. These boxes ended up being a much better deal.


  • The event was originally scheduled to end on July 24, but it was extended three days later due to feedback from users over the networking issues that were present during Pokémon GO Fest.[2]
