One Player Has Caught Every Pokémon Available In Pokémon GO


Out for little more than a fortnight, a player in North America has already completed the Pokédex by catching every Pokémon that is available in Pokémon GO.

That player is Reddit user ftb_hodor, who has worked hard to catch the 142 Pokémon necessary to complete the Pokédex in the region. That leaves nine left to collect, like Legendary Pokémon Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo and Mew and the region-exclusive Pokémon Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, Ditto.

4,269 Pokémon were caught, 303 eggs were hatched, and 153 kilometres were wandered in their exploration, while Omanyte was the final Pokémon that was caught, and later evolved into Omastar. That would have happened earlier, but connection issues with Verizon hampered their progress.

The player had reached Level 31 by the end of their journey, and largely spent their time collecting Pokémon across Manhattan and Brooklyn in New York City.

  1. Then that’s not all, but all in America and not necessarily as Ditto is available now and rumours say there is one in every region.
