Looking to get your hands on the exclusive Flying Pikachu in Pokemon GO? Here’s how to catch the balloon-loving Pokemon in May 2022!
Flying Pikachu has a long history with the Pokemon franchise. First seen in the opening of Pokemon Yellow back in 1998, the rare Pokemon later became available via an exclusive distribution event.
Since then, the version of Pikachu (which can learn Fly alongside the ‘mon’s usual moveset), has appeared several times over the years. It’s been part of the official Trading Card Game, featured in Pokemon Snap, and even surfaced in Pokemon GO.
Flying Pikachu first made an appearance in GO Fest 2020, and later returned for the game’s 5-year anniversary. Now, Flying Pikachu is back in the mobile game one more time, and all players have a chance to catch it!
