A One Piece x Pokémon Go crossover event has been announced. From July 22nd to the 29th a special event Pikachu wearing the straw hat of One Piece’s main character, Monkey D. Luffy, will appear in the wild. The straw hat will also be available for trainers in the game.
The event commemorates the 22nd anniversary of One Piece, and the 3rd anniversary of Pokémon Go.
During the event a statue of Luffy will be unveiled in Kumamoto Japan along with a special PokéStop that will feature art from One Piece creator Echiro Oda. This event is being held to support the efforts to rebuild in Kumamoto after it was hit with a 5.1 magnitude earthquake in January.
