I've heard you can start with pikachu in pokemon go instead of the 3 standard starters. How would one do this? Is this even possible?
After digging deeper it seems you can in fact start with pikachu in Pokémon Go.
You need to walk away from the three starters in the beginning of the game, just like in the animé. After you walk away from them 4? Times, Pikachu will show up.
You can! Walk away from the original starters four or five times and then a Pikachu will show up along with them (though not on its own as I originally thought, so be on the lookout)!
