‘Pokemon Go’: How To Catch Pikachu And Other Electric Type Pokemon
"Pokemon Go" players are familiar with Pikachu, the most famous of all Pokemon. Catching this loveable creature and other electric-type Pokemon will be much easier if players know where to look for them.
Pikachu is the evolved form of Pichu. The Pikachu, in turn, can evolve to a higher form called Raichu. Other electric Pokemon include Magnemite (evolves to Magneton), Voltorb (evolves to Electrode), Elekid (evolves into Electabuzz then Electivire), Jolteon and legendary Zapdos.
Pikachu and the rest of his electric-type pals usually spawned in areas that are generally considered as "industrial". "Pokemon Go" players can look for these specific types of creatures in factories, power plants, schools and places that have large amounts of concrete, according to VG24/7.
Once a Pikachu is nearby, a player's smartphone will vibrate to warn of the Pokemon's presence, according to the official Niantic website. A trainer will need to have a few Poke Balls ready since it might take a few attempts to successfully capture a Pikachu or any other Pokemon for that matter. The use of special Poke Balls such as Great Balls, Ultra Balls and Master Balls will increase the chances of capturing the Pokemon. The use of incense and lures can also maximize the chances of Pikachu appearing.
Players can also breed a Pikachu using an egg rather than capturing one in the wild. It takes around 11 egg cycles or around 2800 steps to incubate a Pikachu, according to the Pokemon Database. The Pikachu has the static capability and hidden ability of lightning rod. An opposing Pokemon has 30 to 50 percent chance of getting paralyzed once it comes contact with a Pikachu.
Pikachu is derived from two Japanese words. "Pika" means mouse and "chu" means squeak. So basically, Pikachu means "squeaking mouse". A Pikachu can either be male or female.
