In 2019, Pokemon Go had a cross over event with popular manga series One Piece to support the reconstruction effort of Kumamoto, Japan after the devastating 2016 earthquake. The event was a collaboration with One Piece creator Eichiro Oda (a native to Kumamoto) that spawned Pikachu wearing straw hats, and a new special Pokestop in Kumamoto for the statue of One Piece’s main character, Monkey D. Luffy (featuring special art by Oda himself). Although the global release of this event didn’t mention One Piece by name, the announcement did make hints that referenced the pirate anime.
