Can you start with Pikachu in Pokemon Go?

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.

Reddit post “You can get pikachu as your starter pokémon”

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.
