Niantic is celebrating its second anniversary of the hit Pokémon GO game all month. To mark the occasion, Niantic is hosting a new event which will see Pikachu and Pichu spawn more frequently from now until July 31st. Everyone with a gold Pikachu Fan medal will be able to purchase all the festive items, like a T-shirt and Pikachu ears.
Interestingly, players can get the Summer Style Pikachu by completing any Research Quest that Pikachu would normally appear as a reward.

This will also aid players who are wanting to participate in the new trading mechanic, as many will be stockpiling region-exclusive Pokemon and then trading to those who might not otherwise have access to them.
Niantic has also revealed that Celebi will be coming to the game soon.
If that's not enough Pikachu for you, a selection of Pikachu Fan Avatar items will be available in the store.
"We've heard so many incredible stories from Trainers, and we can't wait for what's on the horizon", said Niantic. To celebrate the game's second birthday, Niantic is letting Pikachu in on the sunglasses fun alongside our boy Squirtle.
Celebi will be the second Mythical Pokemon introduced to Pokemon Go, following Mew, which was announced in March and rolled out in April.
