But how do you find a Santa Hat Pikachu now?
The good news is there are going to be plenty of Santa Hat Pickachu about, according to the game’s maker. Chances are that if you put in the time you’ll simply stumble across one. But, to be more certain, we've got a few special tips for you to follow.
First up, make sure you’re using the new Nearby feature which will show you Pokémon that are close when you’re at a PokéStop.
Next, be sure to check areas near science museums and power plants as Pikachu are known to hang around in those locations. Other electricity related areas may also prove useful in finding the electric powered Pokémon.
Once found be sure to use Razz Berry and anything else in your goody bag to make sure you catch it first time.
Make sure to keep hunting while these special edition Santa Hat Pikachu are about as you’ll get lots of candy that you can use to level up to Christmas Raichu.
Happy holiday hunting!
