The Pokemon Go Pikachu Libre outfit is one of many disguises Pikachu can don in Pokemon Go, but it's also one of the rarest and hardest to attain. You won't find Libre Pikachu out in the wild though, because the Luchador Pokemon is obtained via a very specific method. You need to dive into the Battle League PvP mode to get it, but it's not quite as simple as just winning a few battles. Here's everything you need to know about how to get the Pokemon Go Pikachu Libre outfit.

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 attain Legend status by winning enough games, along with hitting the max rank of 25. Expect to play a lot of matches to reach that level, but it's all worth it for Pikachu Libre, which also has a chance to be shiny.

Pikachu Libre will know the exclusive move Flying Press and you can also earn Libre outfit items for your avatar too, so you can be matching buddies. Make sure to check out all of our guides to the best Pokemon for each league above, to stand a chance of making it to rank 25!

Give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
