It was only a matter of time before a Pokémon Go player completed their Pokédex, and that time seems to be now. SOMEONE HAS CAUGHT THEM ALL.
Well, all the Pokémon available in the US, at least.
Of the missing nine, three (Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, and Mr. Mime) are only available outside the country, and six (Articuno, Ditto, Mew, Mewtwo, Moltres, and Zapdos) have never been spotted anywhere and are believed to be uncatchable at this time.
Nick Johnson, 28, the Brooklyn-based Pokémaster, said he walked an average of eight miles a day for two weeks to complete his collection.
And in that time, he got to level 31, caught 4,629 Pokémon (609 of which were Pidgeys, lol), hatched 303 eggs, walked a grand total of 153 kilometers (about 95 miles), and lost a whopping 10 pounds — and yes, he has a job.
“I work 50 hour weeks, sometimes more,” Johnson, who works at a tech company called Applico, wrote. “So I do that during the week, and then after that, I would go out at about 6:00 PM and stay out basically until I had to go home and pass out.”
