How to Get Pikachu as Your Starter in Pokemon Go


Everyone is hooked on Pokemon Go at the moment and new easter eggs, features and bugs are still being discovered, but the most awesome discovery yet is an easter egg which lets you choose Pikachu as your starter Pokemon as opposed to Charmander, Squirtle or Bulbasour. So if you haven’t already started your journey to becoming a Pokemon Master, this is your lucky day!

When Professor Willow asks you to choose your starter Pokemon in the beginning of the game, Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasour will spawn on the map and you have to capture one of them. If you ignore them and walk away however, they will disappear and respawn seconds after, and if you do this 4 times they’ll eventually respawn along with a Pikachu next to them, allowing you to click on it and capture it as your starter!

GameInformer even made a video showing us exactly how to do it:
