Pokémon Go event Pokémon list: All costume Pokémon, including party hat Pokémon, flower crown Pokémon and every Pikachu costume explained

Event costume Pokémon in Pokémon Go are special versions of certain Pokémon, which can be caught wearing a costume. This can be anything from a party hat to a deerstalker to what we’re meant to believe is a flower crown.

Event costume Pokémon are released as part of an in-game event in Pokémon Go, such as a Community Day or a tie in event for a holiday like Halloween.

Each event costume Pokémon is very collectable, especially since there are, like regular Pokémon, shiny versions of these special Pokémon.

Raichu event costumes in Pokémon Go

Just like Pikachu, there is a range of costume Raichu for you to collect in Pokémon Go.

You can’t find these Raichu out in the wild though. Instead, you’ll need to evolve one of your costumed Pikachu. This means it’s always a good idea to catch at least of each costumed Pikachu if you plan on becoming a costume collector.

It costs 50 Pikachu candies to evolve a Pikachu into a Raichu.

Only Straw Hat, Party Hat (Red) and Mimikyu Pikachu are unable to evolve into Raichu.

Below you’ll find all the information you need about the various costumed Raichu’s in Pokémon Go:

Pichu event costumes in Pokémon Go

There is a good selection of costumed Pichus for you to collect in Pokémon Go.

Costumed Pichu can only be found in eggs that are collected during the event period they’re connected to. This means that, if you hold onto one of these eggs, it’s possible that you might hatch a Pichu outside of an event.

Typically Pichu can be found in 7km, but it’s always a good idea to check the specifics of the event just in case they’re appearing in additional egg pools. This will make your task of tracking down that special Pichu a lot easier.

Here are all the costumed Pichu’s that are currently available:

Cherry Blossom costume Pokémon in Pokémon Go

The Cherry Blossom costume in Pokémon Go is a set of two cherry blossoms which sit upon a Pokémon’s head in a similar manner to the Flower Crowns.

Cherry Blossom Pokémon were first introduced as part of the Spring into Spring 2023 event in April 2023. Pokémon wearing this costume can be evolved, so, if you have a Cherry Blossom Pikachu, it can be evolved into a Cherry Blossom Raichu.

When it comes to evolving Cherry Blossom Eevee, you can either use the Eeveelution name trick or, if you’ve already used the trick, the other evolution methods for this special Pokémon.

For Cherry Blossom Vaporeon, Jolteon and Flareon, you’ll have to keep evolving Cherry Blossom Eevee until you get the one you want. Meanwhile, the Gen 2 Eeveelutions – Espeon and Umbreon – require walking with Eevee for 10km before evolving it either during the day or at night depending on which one you want.

For a Cherry Blossom Glaceon, you’ll need to be near a PokéStop where a Glacial Lure Module has been used, while, for a Leafeon wearing this costume, you need to be near a PokéStop with an active Mossy Lure Module.

Finally, for Cherry Blossom Sylveon, you need to earn 70 Buddy hearts, bringing your chosen Eevee up to Great Buddy Level, before conducting the evolution.

Remember – all of these evolutions also require 25 Eevee Candy.

Below you’ll find all of the Cherry Blossom Pokémon currently released in Pokémon Go:

Christmas event costumes in Pokémon Go

Every year Pokémon Go has a Christmas event as part of their end of year celebrations and, as part of this event, they release a collection of event costume Pokémon for a limited period.

Will you find yourself catching a Santa hat wearing Pikachu or a Stantler wearing a set of bells?

The Holiday 2022 event introduced Holiday Hat Eevee, which can be evolved into costume versions of its Eeveelutions who are all wearing the same hat.

The Eeveelution name trick can be used to obtain these costume Pokémon, but, remember, the name trick can only be used once. This means, if you’ve already used the name trick, you’ll have to use the evolution methods listed below to obtain these Holiday Hat Eeveelutions.

Below you’ll find all the event costume Pokémon that have been released to celebrate Christmas in Pokémon Go:

Día de Muertos event Pokémon in Pokémon Go

Since 2020, Pokémon Go has run a Día de Muertos event at the beginning of November to mark the real world celebrations.

It was in 2022, however, that this Pokémon Go event saw it’s first costume Pokémon coming in the form of special flower crowns for the Duskull evolution tree. Due to the event’s short length, however, only one of these Pokémon could be caught, while the others could only be obtained through evolution.

Below you’ll find all of the costume Pokémon released as part of Pokémon Go’s Día de Muertos events:

Costume First Appearance
Cempasúchil Crown Duskull Día de Muertos 2022 (November 2022) – In the wild, one-star raids, event-exclusive field research tasks, Incense and Lure Modules
Cempasúchil Crown Dusclops Evolve Cempasúchil Crown Dusclops using 25 Duskull Candy
Cempasúchil Crown Dusknoir Evolve Cempasúchil Crown Dusclops using 100 Duskull Candy and a Sinnoh Stone

Fashion Week event Pokémon in Pokémon Go

Fashion Week is a reoccurring event in Pokémon Go; first happening in October 2020 to celebrate the collaboration between The Pokémon Company and Longchamp Paris, with the second event happening in September 2021 and a third in September 2022.

In keeping with these events, various Pokémon wearing fashionable costumes can be found throughout these events – from a formal wear look to Shinx to an artist vibe for Sneasel.

Below you’ll find everything you need to know about the costumed Pokémon released during Fashion Week:

Flower Crown Pokémon in Pokémon Go

Flower crowns in Pokémon Go are not flower crowns, they are flower hair clips; crowns encircle a head, not hoover awkwardly above the right eye.

Notably, it’s possible to evolve a flower crown Eeevee, which, if you’re not using an eeveelution trick, will result in a random flower crown eeveelution.

The easiest way to ensure you get the eeveelution you desire is to use the Eevee evolution name trick. This, however, only works once, so, if you’ve already used it to add that specific eeveelution to your Pokédex, then you need to try another method.


If you’re aiming for either an Espeon or Umbreon, then you’ll need to walk with the Eevee you wish to evolve as your buddy for 10km. Once you’ve done this, evolving this specific Eevee during the day will reward you with an Espeon or, at night, an Umbreon.

For a Leafeon or Glaceon, it’s time to use those special lures at your nearest PokéStop. Placing a Mossy Lure Module will allow you to evolve the Eevee into a Leafeon, while a Glacial Lure Module will transform it into a Glaceon.

Here are all the Pokémon in Pokémon Go that currently wear a flower crown:

Go City Safari event costumes in Pokémon Go

The Go City Safari events in Pokémon Go are a smaller version of the yearly Go Fest events, but focused in a specific real world location. This means, if you want to partake in the event, you need to purchase a ticket for the event and then travel to the location it is being held in.

While these events have been running for a number of years, 2023 was the first time an exclusive costume Pokémon was released as part of these events. The Pokémon in question is Explorer Hat Eevee and to get this costume Pokémon you had to attend one of the Go City Safari events held in 2023, completing the first step of the special research quest you obtained by doing so.

At the time of writing in July 2023, it’s unknown whether Explorer Hat Eevee, or any future Go City Safari costume Pokémon, will be made available outside of these events.

Here are the Go City Safari costume Pokémon:

Go Fest is the yearly celebration for Pokémon Go and, below, you’ll find the costume Pokémon only avaliable during certain Go Fests.

The first is Go Fest 2021 – which occured on Saturday, 17th July and Sunday, 18th July – and, since the event saw the first appearance of Meloetta in Pokémon Go, a number of wearing hats inspired by the mythical Pokémon could be caught during the event. In keeping with the music theme, players could choose between Pop Star Pikachu and Rock Star Pikachu as part of that Go Fest’s special research quest.

2022 saw the return of in-person Go Fest events, with events held in Berlin, Seattle and Sapporo. If you attended one of these events, then you had the chance to catch a Cowboy Hat Snorlax.

Kanto starters event costumes in Pokémon Go

Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle – the Kanto, and most well known, starter Pokémon in the franchise. Thanks to this special status, the Gen 1 starters have been given a number of special costumes in Pokémon Go.

For Squirtle this includes a pair of sunglasses, which is reference to the Squirtle Squad from the Pokémon anime.

The clone versions of the final evolutions for the Gen 1 starters – Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise – are a reference to Pokemon: The First Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back, in which these three Pokémon, among others, are cloned by Mewtwo.

Here are all the event costume Pokémon for the Kanto starters and everything you need to know about their first appearance in Pokémon Go:
