Pokemon UNITE Releases New 'Fashionable' Pikachu Holowear
By Jack O'Dwyer
Pokemon UNITE has released another Holowear costume for franchise mascot, Pikachu.
Fashionable Style: Pikachu sports a "dapper" mint green tuxedo jacket with gold buttons, a white collared button up shirt, and pink bowtie. It also has a beige boater-style hat with a matching pink ribbon around the base. Four flowers decorate the right side as a flourish, each sporting five petals and making a veritable rainbow of red, magenta, yellow, and light blue.
The skin was released on Sunday, Aug. 22.
How to Get the Fashionable Style Pikachu Skin in Pokemon UNITE
Fashionable Style: Pikachu can be found in the Zirco Trading section of the in-game Shops menu. Shops can be found by selecting the shopping cart icon on the bottom bar on the main game screen.
It can only be bought with Aeos Gems, however, so Holowear Exchange Tickets won't help much here. Those who want to collect it will need to have or shell out 400 Aeos Gems.
Aeos Gems can only be purchased by using real-world currency. They can be bought by pressing the "+" button on the top of the right joycon. This will bring up the currency exchange menu, where players can select how many Gems they'd like to purchase. Once selected, the actual transaction will be directed to the Nintendo eShop.
This is the eleventh Holowear skin currently available in game. It is also the fifth Fashionable Style—with the other four being Eldegoss, Absol, Greninja, and Gardevoir. It is also the second skin implemented for Pikachu, but the third revealed.
