Event forms

Event Pokémon, also called costumed Pokémon, are specifically made for events with visual attributes closely related to the event theme, such as, themed-hats, clothes or costumes. Both regular and shiny can be obtainable during certain events. Some Event Pokémon have only the male/female gender available. They can be seen in the Pokémon collection by using costume search filter.

In general, all Event Pokémon have the same stats of the non-costumed Pokémon form, being the only difference the visual attributes. The exception to this are:

  • Pikachu Libre, Pop and Rock that have a difference set of possible attacks.
  • Flying and 5th anniversary Pikachu, that has one extra attack - Fly.
  • Armored Mewtwo, that has different stats and set of possible attacks.

Also some Event Pokémon knew specific attacks during certain events.

Some Event Pokémon cannot evolve, while the non-costumed form can. These costumed forms are presented in Pokémon individual pages on section Forms of the article (such as in Pikachu's). Other Event Pokémon, including those that when evolving can keep the piece of costume, are presented on Pokémon individual pages on section Costumes of the article (such as in Pikachu's). These Pokémon do not have any costume after Mega-Evolved. If not specified, the base form of Event Pokémon can be found in wild. Event Pokémon are recorded in the event Pokédex.
