Pokemon GO: How to Catch Cake Costume Pikachu
In order to get Cake Costume Pikachu in Pokemon GO, all you need to do is hunt for it in the wild while the Anniversary 2023 event is underway. The event commenced on July 6 at 10:00 AM and will continue until July 12 at 8:00 PM Local Time. So make sure to grab the Cake Costume Pikachu before the event ends.
It’s worth noting that Cake Costume Pikachu has a boosted spawn rate, meaning it will appear more frequently in the wild. So it’s a piece of cake for the players to encounter it. Nevertheless, if one’s having a hard time finding Cake Costume Pikachu, they can simply use an Incense item to attract the Pokemon.
Can You Encounter the Shiny Variant of Cake Hat Pikachu?
If you are lucky enough, yes, you can also encounter the Shiny Variant of Cake Hat Pikachu. However, the spawn rate of the shiny Pokemon is very low, which is why you will need a ton of resources like Poké Balls, Incense, Potions, etc., to catch its shiny form.
The best way to gather these items without spending a dime is by completing the Field Research Tasks of the Pokemon GO Anniversary 2023 event. These tasks allow earning various rewards, which will eventually help you encounter the shiny form.
