How to get Pikachu as your starter in Pokémon Go?
Pikachu can also be captured elsewhere in the world, so those that missed out on catching it as a starter shouldn’t worry. The secret is to mirror events from the anime series. Yo want to walk away from the three starters that are offered to you. When you load up Pokemon Go it will have Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle surrounding you. If you want to catch Pikachu instead you need to physically move away from them.
Drive if you have to, but you really just need to move about 30 feet or so. Once you move out of range of them your phone will vibrate and the three starters will appear around you again. It’s at this point that you need to check to see if Pikachu has appeared. It seems a little bit random, but for most players you need to walk away a few times.
Just keep walking away from the starter Pokemon, checking your Pokemon Go screen any time they re-appear around you. After just a few of these Pikachu should appear among them. You then just have to catch him as normal, tossing a Pokeball at him.
