- When you first start the game you will see Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle near your Trainer, instead of tapping on one of these three, walk away from them.
- Keep walking away from them and you will see that they disappear and then reappear near your Trainer. Do this 4 times.
- Continue walking and the 5th time Pikachu will pop up on the screen along with the other three Pokémon.
- Tap on Pikachu and throw a Pokéball to capture it.
- Congratulations you now have started the game with a Pikachu!
