It has been very long time since Ash Ketchum left his home by saying goodbye to his mom to be a great pokemon trainer. Before leaving the Palette City, Professor Oak had programmed a Pokedex for Ash which was supposed to help him during his journey. Remember that Ash’s Pokedex all pokemon listed helped him a lot to know about pokemons.Leaving Ash’s journey behind in the anime series, our world is also shown up with many pokemons thanks to the game Pokemon Go by Nintendo. Millions of people play it every day to catch pokemons. Lucky ones who watched the anime series should already know about the most Pokemons. However, there are people who meets with the Pikachu so newly. Whether they watch the anime series or not, people are being crazy in these days to catch new Pokemons and make their Pokedex all pokemon listed. Someone would evantually do it. And this guy did it. Being level 31, Nick Johnson has caught all the pokemons listed in the Pokedex. Well, all the pokemons at least known of their existance in the U.S.
He has 9 pokemons missing in his pokedex. Three of them are available outside the country; Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, and Mr. Mime. However, six of them have never been shown up anywhere in the world yet; Articuno, Ditto (believed to be caught impossible in this version of application), Mew, Mewtwo, Moltres, and Zapdos. Still, a great success!
How did he make it? What was his strategy? It is obvious that being a great pokemaster requires lots of walking in the city on these days. What else?
He had an interview with BuzzFeed talking about his Pokemon career. Below are the some notes;
- Walked an average of 8 miles in a day
- Walked grand total of 95 miles
- Reached to level 31
- Caught 4629 Pokemon (609 of them are Pidgeys!)
- Hatched 303 eggs
- Lost 10 pounds in weight!
He says that all the pokemon he caught except two of them were from New York. Those two were Dratini and Porygon which he caught them in New Jersey. The story is interesting. One day, another player told him a bunch of Dratini walks around in Jersey City. So, he took the train to catch them. He also caught a Porygon, too. That is the spirit!
So, will you ever make you Pokedex all pokemon listed evantually? Start walking..
