Do you think catching all the Pokémon is an impossible task? Think again!

New York-based Nick Johnson is the first person to have caught all of the US-based Pokemon in Pokémon Go game. As you might have thought, this was not an easy thing to accomplish. He might have been a ninja at it.

On a Reddit thread, Johnson said that he had to catch 4,269 Pokémon, hatch 303 and walk nearly 95 miles in the span of two weeks. He used to leave work around 6pm and venture out to the city with treks lasting up to eight hours at a time.

If that’s not impressive yet, his health app clocked him in at walking an average of eight miles a day since the mobile game was released. Additionally, catching his second-to-last Pokemon, Porygon, required an Uber drive around Jersey City. Despite this daunting venture, Johnson tells Business Insider that “it was worth it to fulfill his childhood dream of catching ‘em all.”

However, the rare Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, Ditto, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo and Mew still remain at large since they are only available in certain countries. According to USA Today, Marriott Rewards has offered to sponsor Johnson’s trip abroad to Europe, Japan, and Australia to help him catch the rest of the elusive monsters and complete his Pokédex.

After all, playing Pokémon GO is good for health, good for Uber and might land you with opportunities to travel abroad for free.
