Daft Punk and Pokémon fans: unite. 

In two new Pokémon games, Violet and Scarlet, you can unlock the iconic Daft Punk helmet (or "Cool Helmet" in the games) as a hidden item. 

The helmet comes in different colours, from the most well-known gold option worn by Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, to white, black, red, yellow, green, blue, orange, navy, purple, pink, grey, beige, olive, brown, silver, and aurora coloured helmets.

Hypertext has the solution for you to find the helmets: "Go to Cascarrafa on the West side of the map" later in the game. "Locate the Seguro Style store; it's near the Cascarrafa Gym building. 

"Navigate to the Headwear section of the store," then purchase the Cool Helmet in gold - 4,000 in cash or league points.

We must admit, Pokémon players wearing the Cool Helmet do look awesome.

Last year, Daft Punk broke our hearts when they announced their breakup after 28 years. Pitchfork reported that Daft Punk's longtime publicist Kathryn Frazier confirmed the news. However, an explanation behind the decision was not given. 

Formed in 1993, the duo were hugely influential in the French house scene, and their 1997 debut album, Homework, featured classic tracks like Around The World and Da Funk.

Their second album, Discovery, released in 2001, was even bigger thanks to hits like One More Time and Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.

Daft Punk's fourth and final album, 2013's Random Access Memories, saw them achieve their first-ever #1 Australian album.

In their near 30-year career, the group won six Grammy Awards, including Album Of The Year for Random Access Memories and Record Of The Year for their collaboration with Pharrell Williams, Get Lucky.

Last month, however, Daft Punk launched a TikTok account where users can access music from the duo's back catalogue for use in their videos. The group have retained the rights to their music since the 1990s.
