How to Get a Pikachu as your Starter in Pokémon GO

Pokémon Go is the latest hype in the video game industry. Pokémon fever is again at it’s peak. Everyone is hunting for their favorite pokémons to become an ultimate pokémon master. If you are also going to start playing Pokémon GO, then first read this. After finalizing your profile in Pokémon GO, the next step is to choose a pokémon to start your journey as a pokémon catcher. Originally, Pokémon GO offers you three choices for your starter: Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle. But if you are a huge fan of Pikachu, like me, then congrats, there is a trick on how to get a Pikachu as your starter.

This trick is very simple and let’s see how to do that.

When Bulbasour, Charmander and Squirtle spawns near you character to choose from just walk away from them. After you have walked significantly away from them, they will again respawn near you. Just ignore them and keep on walking away from them. And they will keep on respawning near you. Repeat this step and after 3-4 times, when they respawn near you, there will be a fourth pokémon to choose and that’s Pikachu.

Just throw a pokeball on his head and voila! you got yourself a Pikachu.

This trick is very useful as from my experience Pikachu is very difficult to find out there in wild. While you can find Bulbasour, Charmander and Squirtle very easily as you explore.

Also if you ignore pikachu and keep on repeating this process you might get other secret pokémon.
