The truth about Cosplay Pikachu!
More has been revealed about the Pikachu wearing creative costumes. The truth is that this Pikachu is a star Pokémon that’s wildly popular in Pokémon Contest Spectaculars. It goes by the name Cosplay Pikachu! The heart-shaped mark on its tail is its signature, and it absolutely loves fashion. By dressing up in different costumes, it can steal the show in all kinds of contests!
After you take part in your first contest, you will be able to get this Cosplay Pikachu on your team. You can change Cosplay Pikachu’s costumes anytime in the green room at any Contest Hall. Note: Other Pikachu that you catch or obtain cannot dress up in these costumes. Only the Cosplay Pikachu that you receive at the Contest Hall can dress up in contests.

The Japanese Start Up Master Guide has been scanned and uploaded online! You can flip through all 59 pages here. Not a TON of new info besides a few returning Kirby hats and a handful of new Smash Run enemies, but it’s still pretty fun!
Thanks a bunch to smarto2004 for the heads up. :D
