Daft Punk helmet available as hidden item in new Pokémon video games

The newest games in the Pokémon series, Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, were recently made available for Nintendo Switch users, and gamers have spotted a particularly distinctive garment that their characters can obtain.

Those willing to put some time into playing the game can get their hands on a helmet that is very reminiscent of the iconic gold ones worn by Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo as part of their robot get-up.

The helmet is dubbed ‘Cool Helmet’ in the game, and is also available in a number of other colours besides the Daft Punk-esque gold.

In order to get hold of the helmet, hypertext says, players should do the following: “Go to Cascarrafa on the West side of the map. Locate the Seguro Style store, it’s near the Cascarrafa Gym building. Navigate to the headwear section of the store. Buy the Cool Helmet in gold. Pay 4 000 in cash or League Points.”

Cascarrafa, hypertext adds, is potentially accessible only later in the game, so those who are having a hard time of finding it shouldn’t worry too much, and may simply need to put a little more time into playing through the game in order to gain access.

Last month, Daft Punk set up a TikTok account to run through archive material, and in April, they launched a new website to follow up on last year’s news that the duo had split.
