These cap-wearing Pikachu are event-exclusive Pokémon that debuted in Pokémon Sun and Moon, and were distributed in celebration of the Pokémon anime's 20th movie, I Choose You!, and by extension, the anime's 20th anniversary. Like Ash's Pikachu, these Pikachu are always male and cannot evolve. They also have access to the exclusive Z-Crystal, Pikashunium Z, and its Z-Move, 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt.

In Japan, the Pikachu were distributed via single-use serial code to those who pre-ordered tickets to the 20th movie, with one code per ticket. The Pikachu received depended on the date the player redeemed the code. The codes only worked on Japanese region games. The first time the player uses one of these serial codes, they also received a complimentary Pikashunium Z.

In American, PAL, and Taiwanese region games, the Pikachu were distributed through a single-use public serial code released via the Pokémon website and in a similar vein to the Japanese event—the Pikachu received depended on the date the player redeems the code. The first time the player uses one of these serial codes, they also received a complimentary Pikashunium Z.

A seventh Cap Pikachu, wearing the hat Ash wears in the twentieth movie, debuted in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. In Japan, it was distributed via QR Code on a special Pokémon Ga-Olé disc. In the Americas, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, it was distributed via a QR Code that was given to those who attend screenings of the 20th movie.

Partner Cap Pikachu

This Pikachu was distributed exclusively for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon to players who scanned a QR Code.

The Japanese region QR Code was on a special Pokémon Ga-Olé disk, which was given away to players who attended I Choose You!.

The American and PAL region QR Code was given away to players who attended I Choose You!. The same QR Code can be used in both American and PAL region games.

The Taiwanese region QR Code was available on Pokémon.com.tw in conjunction with the airings of I Choose You! in Taiwan.

The Korean region QR Code was given away to players who attended I Choose You!.

This Pikachu is based on Ash's Pikachu as it appears in I Choose You!. Pikachu's level corresponds to the debut of I Choose You! being during the twenty-first anniversary of the Pokémon anime's debut. The Trainer ID number is based on the original air date of I Choose You!, July 15, 2017. Due to a bug, this Pikachu can be Shiny. Instead of checking its personality value against the Trainer ID and secret ID number of Pikachu's Original Trainer to prevent its personality value from making it Shiny, the game uses the player's data instead.
