Reddit user captures 142 Pokémon within two weeks
Many find it quite a challenge to walk around looking for and capturing Pokémon, but one Reddit user has gone above and beyond to capture 142 of these virtual creatures in just two weeks.
Known as ftb_hodor, this Reddit user has managed to walk a total of 153 kilometers while hunting for Pokémon, according to the app’s sensors. However, a separate heath app that he was using while playing showed that he actually reached roughly 200 km, reports Geek.
The only Pokémon left out of his current collection are Mr. Mime, Ditto, Kangaskhan, Molters, Zapdos, Farfetched, Mew and Mewtwo. Kahangastkan, Farfetch’d and Mr, Mime are believed to be region-specific and can be found only in Oceanic territories, Asia, and Western Europe respectively. The remaining three are said to be so rare that not a single sighting has been reported all over the world since the game’s launch.
It would seem that the only way for ftb_hodor to complete his collection is to travel overseas and hunt down these last eight elusive Pokémon. On the other hand, Nintendo still has literally hundreds of unreleased Pokémon from the franchise and soon enough players who have captured the first 142 Pokémon will be back on the streets again looking for the new ones.
