Here’s How To Start Off Life In Pokémon Go With PIKACHU!
This is what you need to do...
Want to start off Pokémon Go in the best possible way? Well here’s how to start off with PIKACHU!
Cast your minds back to the 90s. At the start of Pokémon Red and Blue, you have a choice between Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle. If you weren’t a weirdo, you would’ve picked one of the latter two.
That same dilemma faces you when you boot up Pokémon Go for the first time. But thanks to Polygon, it turns out there’s a way to get your hands on a fourth option. If you follow these steps, you can start off with the face of Pokémon itself: Pikachu!
Polygon found out that “when Professor Willow tells you to go choose your starter, the initial trio will spawn on the in-game map. Typically, clicking on one initiates a battle, resulting in you obtaining your first Pokémon. If you don’t select a Pokémon, however — if you just keep walking away instead — the three will disappear, then respawn in front of you.
“This is a little tricky to work out, since the game’s camera keeps the trio on screen with you for most of the time, and its GPS still isn’t the most accurate. But if you manage to ignore Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur four times, they’ll come back with another friend in tow.
“Once Pikachu shows up, you can engage it in battle as normal. It’s your call on whether going through the trouble to catch this guy is worth it. It took us 40 minutes of pacing around our office to get it to successfully spawn, and once we caught Pikachu, Pokémon Go’s servers crashed.”
