Release information

This tag was available in a gift set given away as part of the Super Tag Start Campaign at participating locations with a Pokémon Mezastar arcade machine from July 11, 2021.[1] The gift set also included a Super Tag Companion Guide and a Trial Memory tag. The campaign ran for as long as stocks lasted. The gift set was given away again at ÆON Malls hosting the Trainer Tag Battle with Two People event, which itself was part of the 2022 Kids Game Festa. These events were held on the weekends of March 12-13, 26-27, April 2-3, 9-10, and 23-24, 2022.[2] More gift sets were distributed at Trainer Tag Battle with Two People events held as part of the "Mezastudio Kawasaki: The 1st Battle" at Lazona Kawasaki Plaza, Kawasaki, Kanagawa on the weekend of April 30 and May 1, 2022.[3]

A promotional transparent purple version of this tag was one in a set of four tags available as part of a gift campaign held in conjunction with the Japanese broadcast of Pocket Monsters: Right Before Summer Vacation 1-Hour Special! on July 2, 2021.[4] People wishing to enter the competition were required to note the five characters that appeared during the broadcast and call the telephone line displayed at the end of the episode based on the answer (the correct answer was "ポッチャマ", Piplup). Entrants calling the correct number were entered into a lottery to win one of thirty tag sets mounted in an acrylic frame. The entry period was open until the broadcast of an anime episode on July 9, 2021. Winners were scheduled to receive their prizes by the end of August 2021.[5]

This tag has identical stats to a promotional Pikachu tag available in 2022, which differs by not featuring Ash Ketchum when used in-game.


This Pikachu is based on Ash's Pikachu from the anime. An image of Ash appeared in-game when Pikachu attacked for the first time. Thunderbolt is a move that Pikachu used in the anime and one it can learn in the games.
