So, You Want to Choose Pikachu as Your Starter Pokemon in ‘Pokemon Go’…
In case you haven't noticed, everyone's had their noses buried in their phones this past weekend. But they're not just tweeting or texting or Snapchatting like usual — they're on a mission: to catch 'em all.
Pokémon Go — the mobile app that has us all catching Pokémon, stopping at Pokéstops and duking it out at gyms in real life — has effectively swept the nation in much the same way as the original iconic game exactly 20 years ago in 1996. Accordingly, plenty of people are already finding some cool easter eggs hidden in the game.
For starters? Well...your starters.
Much like the classic Pokémon Red and Blue original editions of the game, players have the option of starting out with either Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle. Or...do they?
Thanks to some particularly antsy users, Game Informer confirms that players make pick our beloved Pikachu as their game starter, a la Pokémon Yellow — you just gotta walk around for a bit.
The tutorial above explains all very quickly, but pretty much, when you're presented with your (seemingly) only three starter Pokémon options, keep on walkin' for about 10 minutes or so. Voila! The ever-adorable Pikachu will eventually show up on your map.
Please, remember to store away your Pokéballs while driving — and look up every now and then while you're walking around. You never know what you might run into.
