After adding Armored Mewtwo as a Raid Boss, Pokémon GO has just announced a new crossover with One Piece to get fans excited.

Shared via the official Japanese Twitter account for the Pokémon GO, the smartphone game will be collaborating with One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda and Kumamoto Prefecture’s “revitalization campaign” by turning a One Piece statue located in Kumamoto into a PokéStop. The stature will help support the rebuilding of Kumamoto after the city was hit by a devastating earthquake earlier this year. Artwork by Oda will also be displayed.

Additionally the lovable Pikachu can be spotted wearing Luffy’s straw hat embellished with a red ribbon. The special One Piece Pikachu will appear in the game starting Monday, July 22 until July 29, for one week only. The hat will also be added as an in-game item for players.

The crossover event will also celebrate the third anniversary of Pokémon GO and the 22nd anniversary of One Piece.

In case you’ve missed it, here’s how to beat Armored Mewtwo in Pokémon GO.
