For a limited time during the Secrets of the Jungle event in Pokémon Go, October 1-11, players will meet the explorer Pikachu. He is a costumed Pikachu that you can add to your collection if you haven't already done so when he appeared in previous events. Although he has the same stats as a regular Pikachu, avid collectors may be looking for him to complete their collection. Thankfully, you won't have to try too hard to find this Pokémon.
For those looking for the Pikachu Explorer, you can expect to find it lying around in wild and one-star raids. However, if you are simply looking to add this Pokémon to your collection, we recommend using incense to lure it to your location or to place a bait at the PokéStop to see if you can find one. Explorer Pikachu spawning is not considered difficult, so players should be able to catch multiple of them.
However, if you are looking to receive the bright version of this Pokémon, we recommend that you try to fight it in a one-star raid. Traditionally, a Pokémon in the wild has a 425 in 20 chance of being a Shining version, while if you defeat it in a raid, there is a XNUMX in XNUMX chance that it will be a Shining version. Although it requires a raid pass, it gives you the best chance of finding a shining one. Plus, it's a battle most coaches should complete on their own because it's a one-star difficulty.
Explorer Pikachu will not be available after October 11 at 20pm in your local time zone until it appears in another event.
