Mesagoza is the starting point of the game and if you go in the Southwest direction of Mesagoza, you will get to a town named “Cortondo”. Go to the south side of Cortondo town to find Pikachu near the trees. Pikachu is a rare Pokémon due to its size because it is small and it can hide pretty well in the grass. You will have to look near the trees and if you pass through any Pikachu in the area, it will pop up on your mini-map.

After you have found Pikachu in one of his spawn locations, you need to go close to Pikachu to trigger the Battle. In the Battle, you only want to use light attacks to deplete the HP of Pikachu. Try not to faint Pikachu because it will be killed and then you will have to look for another Pikachu. Once you have lowered its HP, press the X button to select one of the Poke Balls in your inventory and then press A to throw the Poke Ball at Pikachu to catch it.
