Niantic reveals their plans for the latest event update for "Pokemon Go." In addition, there is an ongoing event in Japan involving accessorized Pikachu that involves six adorable Pikachu models.

It looks like updates for the phenomenal reality augmented game has been one of Niantic's top priorities this year. This is evident when information about events and updates were revealed in any convention or forum the company attended. The most recent are the GDC 2017 and the Mobile World Congress, says Express.

During the SXSW Conference and Festival in Austin, Texas, Niantic CEO John Hanke has confirmed that the company is working on new ideas for "Pokemon Go." Although he did not particularly specify what these new ideas are, he noted that his team did not yet reveal these latest projects yet. This means the Gym Battle overhaul; PvP and trading features are crossed out of the equation.

According to several reports, it is possible that the company is working on a "Pokemon Go" event. The general impression right now is that it most probably involves the Festive Pikachu run event, which fans have been anticipating. Somehow, it looks like the next game event would involve Pikachu and some hats again.

The latest hat wearing Ash Pikachu was actually launched in Japan for "Pokemon Sun and Moon" as a way of celebrating the 20th year anniversary of the anime and the upcoming release of a Pokemon movie in July. The event allows players to download six different hats wearing Ash Pikachu models and can be availed by pre-ordering the movie tickets.

Although no information about this similar event for "Pokemon Go" has been confirmed yet, it is, however, likely for a similar event to take place. In addition, an advertising for the said Ash Pikachu promotion somehow suggests that Niantic could possibly have something similar in "Pokemon Go."
