Pokémon X, Y, Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire - Special Pikachu

The rankings for the Pikachu Cup have been released and Pikachu came #3 in overall usage, so the special Pikachu was decided to be the gift to all participating players who played over 3 matches and is now available through the Pokémon Global Link. This Pikachu is special in that it knows various moves including Endeavor, which it can't normally learn, as well as having its Hidden Ability and holding the Light Ball. It is obtained via a Serial Code and the code can be redeemed until midnight UTC on October 30th. The Event Database has been updated with details of this event.
