Who wants Bulbasaur, Squirtle, or Charmander when you catch Pikachu? In this tutorial we’ll be showing you how to start Pokemon Go the right way, with a Pikachu. Now I’m not sure wether to call this a hack or an easter egg. reason being you can still a get a fury little Pika without a jailbreak if your willing to walk. Before we go any further we’ve got to credit Polygon for going through the steps that lead to this discovery. The person who thought of ignoring the first three starter Pokemon and walk away, and kept walking, was a genius!

Note: If you already have an active Pokémon Go account and missed out on this easter egg, you’re not out of luck on catching Pikachu. All of the starter Pokémon are available for capture around the world. You must be facing North (Red up) in order for you to walk in the direction you want to walk As described by the developer, he hasn’t been able to find the rotation of the map.
