The fifth anniversary of Pokémon Go has begun, and an unexpected celebration begins just before Pokémon Go Fest 2021, which begins on July 17. Players can participate in the fifth anniversary celebration starting on July 6 and will continue until the 15th day. All budding Pokémon, such as Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Treecko, Torchic, Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott, Chikorita, and many more, will increase in reproduction. Some of them will have an increased incidence of spawns in the wild and others will appear as an increased spawn near the bait modules that you can activate on Pokéstops. Another Pokémon that returns to action is the Flying Pikachu, but the special version has a 5-shaped balloon that you can capture.
Flying Pikachu is an electric Pokémon, although it is described as flying. He will appear in the wild and players have a chance to meet him during a one-star raid. These are the two easiest places to meet this particular Flying Pikachu. You can also capture it by completing the fifth annual challenge collection, which will be available to all players during the fifth anniversary event.
The best chance to capture this Flying Pikach will be in the wild. However, if you want to guarantee the addition of one to your Pokédex collection, we recommend hunting it during a one-star raid or by fulfilling the fifth annual collection. The collecting challenge will take place from July 6 to 15, so you have plenty of time to complete it before it disappears.
A glossy version of this Pokémon will not be available during the event.
