World Cap Pikachu Pokémon GO: How to Catch

World Cap Pikachu, like other Cap Pikachu, will only be available for a limited time. Weirdly enough, this one will be featured in Spotlight Hours.

At 6 p.m. on Oct. 6, you'll be able to find World Cap Pikachu in the wild for just one hour. You'll also get double catch XP for this hour. This will be the first time World Cap Pikachu will be available in GO. Besides the special hat, it functions just like a regular Pikachu with the same stats and attacks.

Normally, Pokémon wearing cosmetics can't evolve. The various Cap Pikachu are exceptions to this, and it seems that World Cap Pikachu will also be able to evolve. Dataminers have found that a World Cap Raichu is present in the game's files.

You only get an hour to get World Cap Pikachu, so don't miss out when it's in the Spotlight on Oct. 6.
