Pokémon Go has been a huge hit since its release on Android and iOS yesterday. Their servers have been overloaded and people are getting more exercise now than ever.
When you first start the game, you are given the choice of Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle for a starter. However, there’s actually a way to get Pikachu as a starter like Ash Ketchum did in the original T.V. Series.
How to get Pikachu as a Pokémon starter
When Professor Willow offers you the three choices, simply just walk away. Once you’ve walked far enough away from the starters, all three will respawn again next to you. After the fourth respawn, Pikachu will appear!
The video below outlines the entire process in under two minutes. So what are you waiting for? Go out and be the best, like no one ever was! Ok fine, that was cheesy.
