Pikachu is probably the most recognizable Pokémon to date, so it's not surprising that Pokémon trainers want a Pikachu in their Pokémon GO team. Fortunately, Pokémon Trainers have the opportunity to discover a secret in Pokémon GO that will allow them to obtain a Pikachu very soon after the game starts!

Steps

Method 1 of 2: Get a Pikachu as the starting Pokémon

Step 2. Walk away from the three starting Pokemon in your line of sight

As soon as you start the game through your new account, you will see a Squirtle, a Bulbasaur and a Charmander appear on your screen, ready to be captured. If you catch one of these Pokémon, the others will disappear, as will your chance to start with a Pikachu. So walk away from these Pokémon until they are out of sight.

Step 1. Look at power stations and science museums

It's a little harder to catch Pikachu in the wild, but definitely possible. It can appear anywhere, but is rumored to be common near power stations and science museums. This is probably because of his affinity with electricity. If there is a power station or other source of electricity near you, it's a good idea to look there first.

Step 2. Wait until late at night

Some trainers have also seen Pikachu appear at times as late as 3am. Wait until it's very late to increase your chances of encountering Pikachu in the wild.

Warnings

  • Do not download files from the internet that contain so-called 'cheat tools'. These 'tools' state that they contain all Pokémon, as well as all 'items' and all things that you can unlock. In reality, they contain malware and are a scam.
  • If you go to power sources to try and find Pikachu, you should be aware of the dangers and the safety precautions to take in the place in question.
