This Pokémon Go Player Just Became The Very First To Catch 'Em All Worldwide

Nick Johnson was the first Pokémon Go player to catch all the available Pokémon in America. And then he went on a mission across the globe for the rest.

Nick Johnson, who caught all the Pokémon in the US in late July, just completed his worldwide Pokédex by catching a Kangaskhan, which is only available in Australia and New Zealand.

During his conquest of North America, Johnson walked 153 kilometres and lost 10 pounds.

While Johnson did catch all 142 Pokémon available in the US, he had to travel to Europe to catch Mr Mime.

Nick was flown to all of these locations by Expedia & Marriott, after they sponsored him to help finish off the Pokédex.

Now Nick's just trying to get inside the Nintendo headquarters. He's in Japan tomorrow.

Hey @Nintendo & @PokemonCompany, now that Ive traveled the world and caught all 145 #Pokemon when can I visit your HQ? Am in Japan tomorrow!
