Wow. The Pokemon Go craze seems to know no boundaries. The game has not even arrived in many countries yet, but people are going crazy for it in the countries that do have it. Over in New Zealand, a 24-year old New Zelander by the name of Tom Currie has decided to quit his job and play Pokemon GO full time.
He wants to travel the entire country of New Zealand and capture every Pokemon that he can find, and so far he seems to be doing a pretty good job. Live the dream man. Live the dream.
“I booked busses from all the way down to Invercargill and all the way back up to Cape Reinga so hopefully I can catch some awesome Pokémon on the way. It keeps track of how far you’ve walked and I’ve done around 50 km so far, and that’s with the actual game, walking away, slogging away.”
Now that is the spirit of a true pokemon trainer. Currie claims that he is level 20 right now and has so far managed to capture over 700 Pokemon, including a 1709 ‘CP’ Vaporeon. His goal is to catch a Mewtwo which he claims is considered the end-game for many players.
