The Pokemon Go Pikachu Libre is an exclusive reward in the Battle League. This is the ranked PvP mode where you compete against other players around the world for top rewards. As you progress through the ranks, you'll earn things like stardust, rare candies, and Pokemon encounters that are otherwise tricky to find.

One of these Pokemon encounters is Pikachu Libre. Unfortunately, you do need to reach rank 10 to obtain it, which is the highest rank in the Battle League. Expect to play a lot of matches to reach that level, but it's all worth it for Pikachu Libre.
