Three first Pokemon you meet in the game are Squirtle, Charmander, and Bulbasaur. The same creatures are the starters in other Pokemon games. And they were the monsters, Ash missed in the very first episode of the “Pokemon: Indigo League” cartoon series, where a professor gave to him the last remaining Pokemon – Pikachu. So in Pokemon Go you have to do almost the same: don’t take other creatures until the game proposes Pikachu!

But you have to do one thing for this. When you see the three starters, just leave them and go away from them. Seriously – go from them! After a while they’ll respawn in a new place – the game wants you to take someone. Look if there still are only three Pokemon. If yes, again go away. This process repeats few times, usually four. With your patience the game will throw in the towel and will propose to you four Pokemon – Pikachu will be the extra one. Don’t miss this moment and catch him!

That’ it! Now you have your the starter Pokemon, and he is Pikachu.

You may go hunting on other virtual creatures. To collect many different Pokemon will be nice to know, where they usually hide. Read about Pokemon’s habits here: All about the Pokemon types! There you’ll also find information how to catch Pikachu not as the starter, but in the game process.
