Niantic Confirm Holiday Pikachu/Raichu Will Keep Their Hats Permanently

What does that mean? Well it means all Pikachu’s or Raichu’s caught during this period with these hats on, will keep those hats forever.

Hey all, as we all know Niantic have added some bonus feature into the game as we head into the Christmas period, as expected.

Niantic have added either bonus Pokémon, experience, stardust and candy to all major holidays since Halloween, with them all being incredibly successful.

As a result it is no surprise Niantic have done so again, this time its Pikachu and Raichu who have had Christmas hats added to them.

This was discovered earlier in the week yes but what’s new is that Niantic have now stated that its permanent.

What does that mean? Well it means all Pikachu’s or Raichu’s caught during this period with these hats on, will keep those hats forever.

It now may as well be a new Pokémon, and if you miss out on one during these holiday weeks then you will just have to wait for trading, and I doubt they will be cheap.

I know for myself I need to catch at least one of each Raichu or Pikachu with these hats on, as I need to catch them all.

But I do wonder if you were to catch one of these Pikachu’s and then make it evolve later on after the holiday period when this is all over, would the Raichu have a hat too?

I for one don’t want to be the guy who risks is and finds out, because if it was me i’d be too scared to lose the hat, as silly as it sounds.

But until then Pikachu and Raichu will keep their stylish hats until the end of the Christmas period and from then you wont be able to catch them with hats again until next year most likely.

Luckily however, the hats on those Pokémon you have caught will stay and from there you can boast to your friends who missed out, that you have a somewhat different type of Pokemon.
