Pokémon Go‘s first anniversary festivities have kicked off with the introduction of Raid Battles. Later this month, they’ll be hosting Pokémon Go Fest celebrations in Chicago. So, what more could we possibly ask for to celebrate the big one year anniversary?

Special event Pikachus, of course! From 4 PM ET/1 PM PT today until July 13th, special Pikachus that were Ash Ketchum’s hat from the Pokémon TV anime will be spawning. Be on the look out for these special event limited Pikachus.

In addition, Niantic is offering a special item bundle in the game’s store. The time-limited Anniversary Box will include Ultra Balls, Max Revives, Incubators, and Premium Raid Passes. It’s a cheaper alternative to buying these items separately, so it’s a deal worth using some coins for.

Stay tuned for more Pokémon Go anniversary news!
