Pokemon GO Fest this weekend is set to be a pretty big deal, with a huge sum of activities, raids and catch opportunities flooding the game for both ticket holders and players who opt not to shell out for it. One of those things coming to the game this weekend are new variants of Pikachu - one glammed up and ready for the arena, and the other ready to tear up the pit in the sticky-floored venue around the corner.

Yes, Rock Star Pikachu and Pop Star Pikachu are coming to Pokemon GO, and you’re going to have to make a big decision as they arrive. Here’s how to catch one of these Pokemon for yourself.

In order to get either of these Pokemon, you’re going to need to buy a ticket for the Fest, giving you access to a lot more in-game content this weekend than if you choose not to. A ticket is available for purchase in the in-game store.

Once you’ve bought this, it will give you access to a special research event on July 17.

Once you are working through the event, you will be given a choice - between Rock Star Pikachu and Pop Star Pikachu. Tap the one you want, and hey presto - it will appear in your PC.

Sadly, it doesn’t look like it’s possible to claim both Pokemon without trading with another player, so make your choice a wise one, as you won’t be able to backtrack on it.

Both Pokemon have the ability to learn special moves based on their costumes, like Meteor Smash for Rock Star and Draining Kiss for Pop Star.

The Pikachu are rare and only around for a short time, so you might want to make your choice soon, no matter how hard it might be.
