One of the newest additions to the updated Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire games is the inclusion of a very special Pikachu. This specific Pikachu is able to cosplay, dressing in different outfits for varying attributes to enter and effectively demolish the competition in the Pokémon Contests with its insurmountable amount of cuteness.
From the pages of the latest Coro Coro magazine, it has been revealed that each of these costumes will give the cosplaying Pikachu unique special moves with different types:
- Pikachu Rock Star will receive Meteor Smash.
- Pikachu Ph.D will receive Electric Terrain.
- Pikachu Pop Star will receive Draining Kiss.
- Pikachu Belle will receive Icicle Crash.
- Pikachu Libre will receive Flying Press.
While there was once a Pikachu that was able to learn Surf, it’s nice to see more branching out. Sure, it’s odd, but it’s also too delightful to see one in those little outfits, which you’ll be able to receive from a certain NPC named Lucia for participating in the Pokémon Contests.
We’ll be sure to update you with more information on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire when it releases almost worldwide for Nintendo 3DS on November 21st. Its European release date will follow shortly after on the 28th. In the meantime, let us know in the comments below which outfit and abilites you’ll be giving your Pikachu when the game arrives. I’ve got my eyes set on Pikachu Belle. I relate to that outfit on such a spiritual level.
