Pikachu is an all time favorite for Pokémon fans. Apart from catching Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle, it is actually possible to get Pikachu as your starter Pokémon.
Step 1: Ignore And Walk Away
At the beginning of the game, Professor Willow will walk you through to select your first Pokémon from an option of three. If you ignore them by not selecting any of these three Pokémon and walk away far enough, they will respawn at your new location.
Step 2: Repeat Few Times
Keep walking away until the three starter Pokémon respawn four to five times, then a fourth option which is Pikachu will be available to you.
So did you get Pikachu as your starter? Let us know in the comments below.
