Announced a Collaboration Between Pokemon Go and One Piece!

Niantic Labs has announced (for the moment only in Japan) a new collaboration of Pokemon GO with One Piece theme, scheduled for July 22nd to 29th.

The fruit of this special collaboration will be the appearance of Pikachu with the straw hat normally worn by Monkey D. Luffy, the protagonist of the popular manga/anime series that has just turned twenty.

In Japan, there is also a statue of One Piece in Kumamoto which will have the function of PokeStop, an initiative linked to the urban renewal of the homonymous prefecture, seriously damaged by the earthquake that struck the country at the end of last year.

At the moment there is no trace of this initiative on the English social media channels of Niantic Labs, so we await further details on the Pokemon GO x One Piece crossover.
