    Shortly after its 2016 mid-year launch, Pokémon Go was dubbed as being a “global phenomenon” despite the persistent software
    hiccups, the Google Account privacy hysteria, and zoning permissions.  Globally, there was an estimate of 160 million active users back
    in 2016, and a projection of roughly 250 million active users for 2017.

    Throughout its first year, the Developers have released numerous updates to address the App’s software issues, add various language support,
    UI and feature upgrades.  It is also worth noting that there were a fair share of events hosted for GO Trainers year-to-date.  Will we ever see
    that famous “raid” on Mewtwo as seen in the hype-trailer for the game?

    Pokémon GO’s latest entry on their website titled, Happy Birthday, Pokémon GO! was posted July, 6 2017 in honor of the app’s first birthday.
    The article advertises that:


    “From July 6 at 1:00 P.M. PDT to July 24 at 1:00 P.M. PDT, Pikachu discovered in the wild will be wearing Ash’s famous hat (Original Cap)
    from the Pokémon animated series, so make sure you don’t miss out on your opportunity to catch one! You’ll also be able to stock up for
    Raid Battles and the events ahead with the special limited-time Anniversary Box, which will include Incubators, Max Revives, Ultra Balls, and
    Raid Passes at a discount in the in-game shop”.

    If you encounter or catch that Cap Pikachu, post your images below.  We would love to see them!
