Although you've probably played Pokémon Go way more than you'd like to admit over the last two weeks, there's a good chance all those hours of tossing Poké Balls haven't put you anywhere close to, well, catching 'em all. But now, one man claims he's actually the first player to catch all 142 Pokémon currently available in the US.
Nick Johnson, of Brooklyn, NY, first announced the insane feat in a Reddit post on Wednesday, much to the amazement -- and at times, skepticism -- of hundreds of commenters, according to a report by Business Insider. But in an interview with the publication, Johnson, who works as head of platform at a startup Applico, detailed the tremendous amount of work he put into the journey to achieve his childhood dream of becoming Pokémon Master. For one, it involved long walks around Manhattan and Brooklyn after work, often in excess of eight hours, and often until he had to return home to pass out. Damn.
