Varients of Pokémon are a fun flavor to have in Pokémon Go. It gives collectors a chance to acquire unique versions of Pokémon that are only available for a select amount of time, increasing the overall pool of choices in the game. One particular variant many are on the lookout for is a Libre Pikachu, and trainers even have the chance to dress up as a Libre Pikachu. To acquire this adorable Pokémon, you need to become more familiar with the game’s new battle league, how to go through the rankings, and the more wins you acquire, the more rewards you receive like encountering Scraggy.

For those on the lookout of this Pokémon, you may want to hold your breath, and you need to wait for a little bit. Niantic shared through their Pokémon Go Twitter that the Pokémon is going to be available at a specific time in the future.
