There is a way that you can catch Pikachu from the start in Pokemon Go.

One of the most popular Pokemon character of all time is Pikachu and as the game takes on the world by storm we try to help you catch Pikachu faster than your friends.

If you have just started to play Pokemon Go, you must have noticed that the first three Pokemons that you get to catch are usually Squirtle, Charmander and Bulbasaur. And like most players you'll wait for Pikachu to show up.

But there is a way that you can start with Pikachu from the start. But if you have already started playing you'll probably need to sign out of your Google account and create a brand new one, or just register with a new Pokemon Trainer Club account.

When you restart the game you'll have to be a little patient. There will be three Pokemon characters for you to catch. Ignore them and don't walk towards them. They will keep on re appearing for you to catch. Just be patient and don't tap on them.

After they have appeared for the fifth or sixth time you'll see another Pokemon appear near you, and that's Pikachu. Move towards him, tap on your Poke-ball and throw the ball in his direction and catch the cute little bunny that you always wanted.

And that's how you get Pikachu from the start on Pokemon Go.

To catch all the 250-odd Pokemon characters, there are also support apps like that are available on the Google Play store for free that you can use to beat your friends in this game.
