In the entire history of Pokémon be it movie, tv-show, and games, Pikachu has been the most popular Pokémon of all time. Most of the Pokemon players intend to add Pikachu to their list. There are a few ways to get a Pikachu in the game. One being, Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! save file on your switch, lets you have one from a character inside the game. However, another way is to grab one in the wild.
Note that getting a Gigantamax Pikachu is only possible through your Let’s Go, Pikachu! savefile option. The Pikachus you come across in the wild can Dynamax but won’t get the special Gigantamax Pikachu form. Look at the map below to find Pikachu.
Pikachu will generally spawn in either of these locations – Route 4 and Stony Wilderness in the Wild Area. When you hover over these habitats will show details about what kind of weather has to happen for the Pokemon to appear. Pikachu only spwans in rain and thunder in the Stony Wilderness. However, in route 4, Pikachu will spawn under any weather.
