New Hat Pikachu

August 9th marks the fourth day of GO Fest Yokohama 2019. 

This means another Pikachu with a hat is available today. This time, it's Witch Hat Pikachu.

Witch Hat Pichu can be hatched as well, and both can be shiny. Thanks to Redditors u/_etanretla and u/atmurauer12 for the info!

Global Challenge Complete

At 4 AM CST today, a new Global Challenge update was also released. 

  • Team Mystic: COMPLETE!
  • Team Valor: COMPLETE!
  • Team Instinct: 23.3 million
  • GO Fest Yokohama: COMPLETE!

The goals are 25 million per team and 2 million for the GO Fest Yokohama area. 

Due to this count being done over 8 hours ago, it is safe to assume the Global Challenge for GO Fest Yokohama 2019 is fully finished, or will be within the next two days. 

This means that the Stardust rewards will begin on Tuesday, August 13, 2019. The bonuses are:

  • 3x Catch Stardust
  • 3,000 Stardust per Raid
  • 3x Hatch Stardust
  • 1-hour Star Pieces

These bonuses are set to last until August 20th. 

In addition, Suicune will be featured in a 3-hour raid event on Saturday, August 17, 2019! The time is yet to be announced. Shiny Suicune will be available during this time. 

Ultra Unlock?

The "Ultra Unlock" as alluded to by another tweet from @PokemonGoApp has yet to be announced. Players last year were treated to:

  • All three legendary birds featured in Raids
  • Mewtwo featured in Tier 5 Raids
  • Gen 1 regionals featured in 7km eggs
